Nigel Latta


Clinical psychologist Nigel Latta first made his mark on Kiwi TV viewers with 2008's Beyond the Darklands, based on his book about New Zealand criminals and how they came to be. Latta hosted the show for five seasons, alongside three lighthearted, politically incorrect series about teens and other humans. Since then Latta has explored everything from money to gravity to inequality, in a range of shows and one-off specials.  

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
