Marae DIY moving to TV3


TV3 is proud to confirm it will become the new home of the award-winning makeover series AIA Marae DIY.

The show, which is produced by Screentime and has been running for over a decade, joins whanau, iwi and hapu in the ambitious task of renovating their Marae in only four days.

With the help of the AIA Marae DIY team: expert builder, Harry Anneff; landscape specialist, David Clayton-Greene; series presenters, Te Ori Paki and Ria Hall; plus a dedicated television crew, the series takes viewers on a renovation journey which is underpinned by family and community history – all tied together with a unique blend of Moari ingenuity and humour.

TV3 Director of Programming, Mark Caulton comments: We’re delighted to have AIA Marae DIY as part of our 2015 programming schedule. The series has long been a favourite with Kiwi audiences and we’re very much looking forward to bringing new stories to our viewers.

AIA Marae DIY is funded through Te Mangai Paho with continued sponsorship support from AIA.

John Bishara, Chief Executive of Te Mangai Paho says: Te Mangai Paho is delighted that a whole new audience will have the opportunity to enjoy this iconic Maori programme and congratulates both TV3 and AIA on this initiative.

Wayne Besant, CEO of AIA comments: “We are delighted that our long association with AIA Marae DIY will continue. Working on the programme has become for us a cherished opportunity to connect with Iwi and local communities all over New Zealand. All of us at AIA New Zealand are looking forward to the next series.”

    Bring Back “Garden Wars”! (The one that Kelly Swanson-Roe and Tony Murrell hosted). That was awesome.
