Welcome to our newsletter
Kia ora e hoa, in this issue we talk about our critical work to preserve some of New Zealand’s oldest recordings, stored on fragile nitrate film. We tune in to some catchy and clever jingles in the first of a two-part series that looks at the hits and misses. We uncover the many Ngāti Raukawa recordings we hold, plus find out how you can win our latest DVD prize pack.
Plus, it’s a big birthday! The New Zealand Film Archive, one component of Ngā Taonga, was launched 40 years ago – 1 April 1981. We take a quick overview of the Archive on the blog and will be marking the milestone throughout the year.
