"Notwithstanding the passage of time, the Erebus disaster still resonated strongly in New Zealand. Charlotte's handling of the interviews, her creation of the set and dramatisation of the event were all taken with accuracy and sensitivity. I have no hesitation in commending Charlotte to any organisation that seeks a factual and sensitive treatment of any event".
R.S Mitchell MBE NZSSM BBS. Superintendent of Police.
If you hear a pin drop in any screening of this, I'd be terribly surprised. This doco has rightly swept the board with all the big awards - it's a powerful reminder of what excellent drama and careful research and interviewing can do to an audience.
NZ Herald review - Erebus Operation Overdue
"I first met Charlotte Purdy when I was being interviewed for my exclusive story for the 60 Minutes program. It was a very difficult time for me personally, and Charlotte took great care to ensure that I felt safe and that my views were heard. She listened to my concerns, discussed things which weren’t clear to me, and respected my personal boundaries. She went far beyond what was required of her professionally, and several years later she remains a good friend of mine. I would highly recommend Charlotte to anyone who may be considering working with her."
