NZ On Screen Election Year Special

Posted Thursday 24 Jul 2014

It's just under two months till the election, the hoardings are up, and NZ On Screen has re-launched its comprehensive Politics collection of documentaries, interviews and other memorable moments from New Zealand's political history.

NZ On Screen first curated the collection prior to the last election in 2011, and is re-launching it in the lead-up to this year's polling day, with some significant new titles, including the award-winning Frontline documentary Five Days in July (about the devaluation crisis after the 1984 election), and an early Austin Mitchell studio interview with Prime Minister Keith Holyoake.

Listener and NZ Herald columnist Toby Manhire backgrounds the collection in this introductory piece. You can see the full collection here
