Murray Wood

Musical Director, Television Executive

The consummate all-rounder, Murray Wood began arranging and performing music for television in the 1970s. Later he founded computer sales company MagnumMac, and spent seven years as managing director of Canterbury Television. Wood died in the collapse of the CTV building, in the earthquake of February 22 2011.

He was more than a fantastic musician – he was a superb technician and sound engineer. He had perfect pitch, could sing well and play most instruments. I miss him. Director John Lye
