Peter Muxlow

Director, Producer

Peter Muxlow sat in the director’s chair during a golden period of television drama. In the 1970s he produced Christchurch-based music show Popco, before directing episodes of Close to Home and historical saga The Governor. His drama credits include Moynihan, Roche, and award-winning teleplay Richard Pearse. He has also directed documentaries The Carmelites and Fiji - After the Coup.  

It was total chaos … We were trying to do basic things, like relocation at night. There was no electricity there, no nothing. You had to pull generators through the mud, there was no communication, no cellphones… Director Peter Muxlow remembers the slog of making TV series The Governor, in Trisha Dunleavy's 2005 book Ourselves in Primetime, page 104
