Clinical psychologist Nigel Latta first made his mark on Kiwi television in 2008 with Beyond the Darklands, based on his book Into the Darklands, about New Zealand criminals and how they came to be. Latta hosted the show for five seasons, alongside three lighthearted, politically incorrect series about teenagers and other humans. 2014 saw the launch of wide-ranging issues show Nigel Latta.
What I try to do in the TV show and the book is to give people useful things that they can actually use to make things better, but also just reassure people that life is not that complicated. Nigel Latta on The Politically Incorrect Parenting Show, in the Sydney Morning Herald, 19 May 2010
