Frost Over New Zealand - The Leaders

A true statesman, non of our politicians of any party now can compare to this man.

So sad that Norm Kirk didn't live to fulfill a vision of New Zealand politics that was sensitive, astute, considered, egalitarian and polite. All old fashioned stuff but I am sad that I am too young to have fully experienced his leadership (I was 14 in 1973). We could have had a different country had Big Norm lived longer, and I'm sure it would be a less divisive and selfish society than the one we have now. Where are the leaders like Norm today? We need them.

Both excellent men, both so sadly wrong about the future. I liked that the interview focused mostly on substance rather than who's-up-who's-down, and that both men were diplomatic and polite but had actual answers to the questions. Clark and Key could take lessons from them!

Thank you

I am in awe of what we lost. Look at the demeanour of John Key, who slurs the left like it is his favourite past time.

The contrast between Kirk and Key on spying couldn't be greater. This is the difference between a statesman and an opportunist banker.

That was great viewing. What a long way we've fallen since 1973.

@Wayne: you'd be best to get in touch with TVNZ Archives to see if further Frost titles remain in the archive:

David Frost also did two programmes on religion, one a general apnel discussion, the other an interview with Lloyd Geering. Does anyone have copies of those tapes or know where they are?

They don't make them like Norm Kirk anymore. What a lovely, dearly loved Prime Minister he was.
An intelligent yet humble man, not out to be a superstar, like some today. Just there doing the job he was born to do.

A sincere, intelligent, compassionate man, something you don`t see in politics anymore.


Carol 9 Aug 2012 - 01.54pm

Lovely to see this, Norman Kirk was a great Prime Minister: a man of integrity and a man who had compassion and cared about the ordinary New Zealand.
