(5) The addition of the TVNZ Archive collection in 2014-2015 accounts for the abnormal percentage increase in overall size of the moving image collection. It is too early to calculate the actual percentage of the non-radio collection that can be deemed accessible, with the TVNZ Archive collection included, until Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision can analyse and examine the physical holdings as part of the TVNZ digitisation project. The 84% reported represents the non-radio collection accessible, excluding the TVNZ Archive collection.

(6) RNZB set very ambitious box office targets for 2015. In hindsight, these were over-optimistic, especially given the substantial growth in international product, in what is now a very crowded domestic market.

(7) This figure comprises:

  • 35,000 attended Te Matatini 2015 in March 2015
  • 25,000 attended the four day National Secondary Schools event in July 2014
  • 15,000 attended regional primary school competitions from June 2014 – December 2014 throughout New Zealand.

(8) This figure comprises:

  • Over one million viewers watched Te Matatini 2015 as it was the first time the festival was broadcast live each day
  • 250,000 people watched the National Secondary Schools four day event in July 2014
  • 100,000 people watched the replay of Te Matatini 2015.
