Visit to Avalon Studios

I had the privilege of doing a tour of Avalon Studios in Lower Hutt, which is just inside the Rimutaka electorate boundaries. The studios were just winding down from filming two new television series.

First opened in 1975, TVNZ slowly moved its operations from Avalon to Auckland during the 1980s. Last year TVNZ sold the studios to a local property investor.

Since then the studios have gone from strength to strength. Because they're no longer owned by TVNZ, they've picked up business from Prime and MediaWorks.
