Come check out: Life in NZ from the 1950s to the 1980s!

The Friends of the Film Archive are launching their 2008 season with a 70-minute romp through pivotal moments in New Zealand’s recent history.

Beginning with the glorious coloured trailer hailing Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953, through to David Lange’s brilliant oratory declaration of New Zealand’s Nuclear Free status in 1985, it all adds up to give a picture of the culture that has shaped the Baby Boomer generation.

Tonight, Thursday 21 Feb, 7pm

My picks are the New Zealand Primary Schools at Work– A five-year-old arrives with his mother on his first day at school and joins activities in the new entrant’s class.

But even better is Miss New Zealand, NZBC, 1973 (excerpt)
Miss Southland is introduced and totters onto the stage in her platforms!!!!!

Anna Dean

Anna Dean, aka The 'Mouth from the South,' has been causing a ruckus, throwing great parties and getting the word out for various projects these past five years in Wellington. She rarely posts. Don't hold your breath.
