New home for Marae DIY
Marae DIY is getting a makeover.
Maori Television didn’t want to continue the award-winning show into its second decade, but now TV3 has picked it up.
Programming director Mark Caulton says AIA Marae DIY has long been a favourite with Kiwi audiences and TV3 is looking forward to including the series in its 2015 programming schedule.
He describes it as a unique blend of renovation tips, family and community history, Maori ingenuity and humour.
The show, which is produced by Screentime, is funded by Te Mangai Paho and sponsorship from AIA.
It will continue to feature expert builder, Harry Anneff; landscape specialist, David Clayton-Greene; and series presenters, Te Ori Paki and Ria Hall as they give whanau, iwi and hapu the ambitious task of renovating a marae in only four days.
Te Mangai Paho chief executive John Bishara says the Maori broadcast funding agency is delighted a whole new audience will have the opportunity to enjoy an iconic Maori programme.
