Close Up was a half-hour-long New Zealand current affairs programme produced by Television New Zealand. The programme aired at 7.00 pm weeknights on TV ONE and was presented by Mark Sainsbury with Mike Hosking as the back-up supporting host. The last edition was broadcast on 30 November 2012. The show was the country's most watched night news and current affairs show. The new Close Up began broadcasting on 2 November 2004 as a replacement for the Holmes show immediately after Paul Holmes announced his resignation from TVNZ and that he would be presenting a similar show on Prime in 2005. The show was originally branded as Close Up at 7 using the existing Holmes studio but when the show relaunched in 2005 it was just branded as Close Up with a new-look studio. Close Up was hosted by Susan Wood from its first show in 2004 until 4 December 2006, when she resigned from TVNZ, citing health problems. Close Up competed with the TV3 current affairs show Campbell Live, and shares the same time slot with TV2 drama Shortland Street. In September 2012, TVNZ announced plans to cancel Close Up and announced its replacement of Seven Sharp.
