Murray Reece

Director

Murray Reece has been the director at a number of key turning points in New Zealand's television history: from the debut of our first drama series (Pukemanu), to the first telemovie (The God Boy), to the episode of Country Calendar where Fred Dagg first showed us around the farm.

After The God Boy debuted on TV One, plaudits flowed in newspaper review columns, and Wellington’s Evening Post devoted a front-page headline to the achievement of its local production team. Trisha Dunleavy, in her 2005 book Ourselves in Primetime: A History of New Zealand Television Drama
