A documentary series based on a globally renowned New Zealand study has won a silver world medal in a prestigious international competition.
The four-part series Predict my Future – The Science of Us won the medal in the 2016 New York Festivals International Television and Film Awards.
The series by Mark McNeill of Razor Films explores the groundbreaking findings that have emerged from the Otago University-led Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Study – which has followed the progress of more than 1000 people born in that city in 1972 and 1973.
For more than 40 year the study has documented every aspect of the health – development and well-being of its members.
This has yielded about 1200 research articles – reports – books and book chapters which have influenced thinking and policymaking in New Zealand and around the world.
