In this issue we share the inside story on the challenges of curating our major programme Ngā wai e rua: Stories of Us. How do you best showcase more than a century of New Zealand history in just 45 minutes?
Find out how one of our sound archivists discovered the remarkable legacy of an American serviceman who was stationed in New Zealand during the Second World War.
We hear recollections of first-time women voters from the 1893 general election. Explore their stories and watch a fascinating new take on their memories, directed by Gaylene Preston.
We also share our submission to a programme considering changes in Māori broadcast media – we stress the need to archive Taonga Māori. Check out, too, a masterclass from our Tumu Whakarae, Honiana Love.
