Heartland - Collingwood Anzac Day

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1993

At the height of the 1857 gold rush, Collingwood was a contender for New Zealand's capital. Thousands of hopefuls poured into the Golden Bay district, but the rush petered out. In this episode of series Heartland, Kerre Woodham meets longtime locals and more recent arrivals,  including the Strange family — who farm in the Aorere Valley  ceramic artists Rosie Little and Bruce Hamlin and resident Communist and philosopher Dick Moth. Woodham also takes part in Collingwood's ANZAC Day commemorations, a poignant occasion for a town that lost 43 men in WWl, including four brothers from one family.

This is scarier than the Nissan Mobil 500.
