Norman Sievewright

With a career spanning almost five decades, studio director Norman Sievewright has worked on some of New Zealand's most prominent news and current affairs programmes. After beginning his career as the NZ Broadcasting Corporation in the 1970s, he became a Senior News Director at Television New Zealand and directed for such shows as Face to Face With Kim Hill, Back Benches, Fraser and Frontline

I felt lucky doing those sorts of current affairs programmes. I was acting as the eyes of the audience, the viewer at home, being able to select shots that helped them understand the dynamics of what was happening in the studio… catching the roll of the eyes, a wry smile or the reaction to the question.
