All material displayed on this website is copyright of Taranaki Media Archive, unless stated otherwise.

Note: our collections do contain numerous items sourced from external contributors and online repositories. These are identifiable by looking at who owns the streaming account where the item is located (for instance, all content that we own is located on our Taranaki Media Archive servers or Taranaki Media Archive-branded streaming services such as YouTube, SoundCloud etc). Please check with the source website, or enquire with us for help, to find relevant copyright information for those items that are not directly owned by us.

Unless otherwise specifically stated, none of the content of this website may be reproduced, copied, used, communicated to the public, or transmitted without the express written permission of Taranaki Media Archive, except for the purposes of private study, research, criticism, review, or education.

Give credit

When information from the Taranaki Media Archive website is used in any context, it must be sourced to our website, and the date of publication on the website must be stated. A URL to the specific item is sufficient to accurately cite the source.


Request Edits or Attribution

If you find an item in our collection that you feel requires an edit, or attribution to yourself or someone else, please get in touch to let us know. We are a non-profit trust mainly run by volunteers, so your request may take some time to be processed.


Suggest additions

In gathering interesting historical material for our collections, we have included many items that are freely available on other streaming services and repositories. If you notice an item/collection anywhere on the Internet which you feel may improve our selection of stories and enrich the collections, please get in touch with a link. The Taranaki Media Archive reserves the right to decide what content is appropriate for inclusion in its collections.
