Coronation Street

Up to date as of January 31, 2010

From Coronation Street Wiki

New Zealand, a South Pacific country of about 4.2 million people, is occasionally mentioned in the script of "Coronation Street". A handy place to send characters so that viewers don't expect to see them again, or to dredge up "long-lost" relatives without having to explain why they have not been mentioned before.

It has also produced the occasional actor or other production worker.

GTA

From Grand Theft Wiki

The Flag of New Zealand

New Zealand is a country whose OFLC (Office of Film and Literature Classification) rating system is sometimes considered to be slightly harsher than that of the Australian OFLC. For example, Australians can play Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas at the age of 15, while New Zealanders must be over 18 to purchase or rent the game. It should, however, be noted that New Zealand has an 18+ rating for games -- Australia lacks this outright, meaning that particularly violent or sexually explicit games may be refused classification and banned from sale. New Zealand sells the full version of Grand Theft Auto IV, while Australia has a censored version.
