Onesi Saluni from the Tonga Broadcasting Commission was one of four Pacific broadcasters to work in the New Zealand media last month.

Saluni joined  Temo Sukanaivalu from Cook Islands TV, Anthony Roebeck of Samoa Broadcasting Corporation (TV1) and Glenda Gabriel from Papua New Guinea’s EMTV for the two week placement.

The programme was organised by Pacific Cooperation Broadcasting Ltd.

A second group of broadcasters, including Fred Osifelo from Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation, Faiyaz Khan from Fiji Broadcasting Corporation, Tifaga Tupuiliu from Broadcasting Corporation of Niue and Vanuatu Broadcasting and Television Corporation’s Horofino Morin started a fortnight’s training last week.

They worked with media operators and engineers from TVNZ and Mediaworks.

The two week programmes are designed to upgrade their skills in  a number of areas, including presentation suite, video editing, camera work, outside broadcasting, news production, master control room, audio engineering, and vision-switching.

This exchange was a combination of both observation and practical experience.

General Manager for PCBL Natasha Meleisea said apart from the training, the visits allowed the Pacific media workers to make contacts within the New Zealand and Pacific industry.

She said the media workers taking part had found the experience very useful.

PCBL was planning to host more Pacific broadcasters later this year.

PCBL was established by the New Zealand government and is funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and Pacific Cooperation Foundation.

It provides New Zealand content to island broadcasters and supports local production by supplying equipment and training.
