Stand Up Aotearoa
The request was successful.
From: Jeff Smith
Dear Television New Zealand Limited,
Stand Up Aotearoa was advertised as a thank to essential services. Can you please advise which organizations were invited to the filming of this as it seems no one from the Frontlines at Auckland DHB's or the Ambulance Service received an invite.
From: Brent McAnulty
Television New Zealand Limited
Thanks for your request.
Our production team contacted 4 key groups, who then put the call out to their teams/staff of essential workers.
* Supermarkets (both major companies)
* DHBs that cover Auckland
* Age Care Association
* Auckland Council
The members of the audience were essential workers. But the programme/broadcast itself was the thank you for ALL essential workers right around New Zealand.
We cannot confirm whether ambulance workers were included, and if not, why not.
