AC Productions' new series, Great War Stories is being edited for screening on TV3. 

We are telling stories of New Zealanders -  men, women, Maori and Pakeha - and one horse, Bess, in short documentaries to screen as part of TV3 News. The first series will screen later this year on TV3 in prime time and then be posted on the relevant websites. The series is funded by NZ On Air.
 
This is an exciting collaboration with our wonderful archives, a rich treasure trove of personal stories - the Alexander Turnbull Library, Archives NZ and the Ministry for Culture & Heritage.
