Bombshell takes us back to 1985, when the French government authorised their secret service to bomb the Greenpeace ship, the Rainbow Warrior, to stop its protests against French nuclear testing in the Pacific. The bombing sunk the ship and killed photographer Fernando Pereira, launching the largest police operation in New Zealand history, and creating a diplomatic stand-off between two allies. A compelling drama that cleverly interweaves archived footage, Bombshell combines the Rainbow Warrior's inspiring journey with that of the French spies and the dedicated police officers who worked to bring the truth behind the sinking to light.

House of Bond
Produced by Cordell Jigsaw Zapruder
Tells the rags-to-riches-to-rags tale of controversial business tycoon Alan Bond from the 1960s-90s. It is the outrageous story of how a cheeky, knockabout Ten-Pound-Pom fought his way from the back alleys of Fremantle to become the richest man in Australia and one of our greatest sporting heroes. "Bondy" was a man with an insatiable appetite for the excesses of life: women, fame, money, crime and everything between. But Bond's ego, greed and ambition saw him overreach beyond all measure until his empire collapsed, leaving him as the country's greatest villain with the biggest ever bankruptcy. House Of Bond is the extraordinary story of the man who defined the 1980s by dreaming big and rewriting the rulebook. Was he a hero? A villain? Or a little bit of both?

In the 1930s, New Zealand's Jean Batten stood alongside Amelia Earhart and Amy Johnson as one of the most glamorous aviatrixes in the world. Her record-breaking solo flights across the world were legendary. Her courage was extraordinary. Her navigational ability was extraordinary. Her instinct was extraordinary. Despite the increasing risks and the loss of so many of her fellow fliers, Batten kept going, and she kept succeeding. New Zealand could not be more proud of their Hine-o-te Rangi (Daughter of the Skies). Yet the perfectly cultivated public persona hid some personal demons, hinted at by her sudden disappearances and periods of reclusion. The true story of Jean Batten is of a daughter determined to live up to a powerful mother, desperate to leave a mark on the world — and prepared to go to the ends of the earth to do so.
