Dunedin based production company, National History New Zealand, won two major awards at this year’s Beijing International Science Film Festival. The World’s Biggest Baddest Bugs and Spider Power took gold and silver respectively in the Nature and Environment category. “The challenge for NHNZ has always been to combine good stories and real science with broad appeal shows for a multi-country audience,” said NHNZ Managing Director Michael Stedman in Scoop. “I believe all these elements have all come together in Bugs and Spider Power. These shows have raised the bar considerably, both in style and content, in science and nature television.”
