The Living Room is a weekly 30-minute magazine style TV programme. It explores the evolving cultural identity of New Zealanders through the arts, music and film. It¹s about artists, musicians, filmmakers and other inspirational characters ­ many of whom operate away from established art institutions, record companies and production houses or who have inspiring, unique careers and stories to tell.

Each show is made up of four different stories ­ three from Aotearoa and one on a New Zealander living overseas. A different personality or artist hosts The Living Room each week from their own living space, giving the viewer a look at New Zealand's creative evolution through the eyes of its artists. There is no fame prerequisite for people featured on The Living Room, just the ability to entertain and inspire.

The Living Room was made possible by funding from NZ On Air.
