Flying visit to that great institution Ngā Taonga

Last week I made a flying visit to that great institution Ngā Taonga.

This is Aotearoa’s only national audiovisual archive where all our old films and television programmes are stored. In between discussions about the future of this Taonga I looked at some beautiful black and white film of the waka racing on the Waikato at Ngāruāwahiā. This was shot in 1938 and even eighty years on it still looks like it was yesterday.
