Beyond the Bombay Hills

Television (Full Length) – 1986

I think we’re trying to show that Auckland’s coming alive.
– Colin Reynolds, Chase Corporation
What is more fundamental to a civilised community than a sewer?
– Dame Cath Tizard, Mayor of Auckland City
Auckland is big enough to be anonymous in. You can do things here that would be scandalous in a smaller place. A topless massage in my town of Westport, for example, consists of a rub down by the footy coach with his shirt off.
– Presenter Peter Hawes
This, as far as we know, is the world’s only inner-city sheep station.
– Peter Hawes on Cornwall Park
My lips are sealed but I could tell you a thing or two about her.
– Gossip columnist David Hartnell

– Robert Muldoon on whether he can name Auckland's mayors
I’m getting on in years, I’m still absolutely buggered, but I do my best.
– All Black Peter Jones relives his famous try (and after-match comment) against the 1956 Springboks at Eden Park
Back at Eden Park here’s the crowd at the latest Inland Revenue Appreciation Rally.
– Peter Hawes, at an empty Eden Park
Here’s an egg cup for very big people.
– Peter Hawes, on one of Auckland’s volcanic craters
