Coming Home - John Money & Wayne McIlwraith

Television (Full Length) – 1999

This Coming Home episode introduces two Kiwi "pioneers in their fields": psychologist John Money and horse expert Wayne McIlwraith. Colorado-based McIlwraith works on top racehorses around the globe, then goes climbing on his rare days off. Money was celebrated and criticised for his game-changing work on gender and sexuality. Returning for a visit downunder, he sets about donating his artworks to a museum in Gore. The episode was made soon after doubts were first raised about the success of Money's most famous case of gender reassignment, David Reimer. 

Wayne specialises in the top racehorses and top show jumpers — equine athletes pushing the same limits as top sportspeople and getting the same sort of injuries.
– Narrator John Sumner
