Bombshell [NZ]

Produced by Screentime New Zealand
Executive Producer: Philly de Lacey
Producers: Bridget Bourke, Riccardo Pellizzeri
Writer: John Banas
Director: Ric Pellizzeri
Network: TV One

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.

Sunday, October 23, 2016 (TVNZ 1)
Produced by Lippy Pictures
Producers: Paula Boock and Donna Malane
Writers: Paula Boock, Donna Malane
Director: Robert Sarkies
Network: TV One

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.

Cast: Kate Elliott, Miranda Harcourt, Michael Whalley, Thomasin McKenzie, Colin Moy, et al
