Interview with Prime Minister Keith Holyoake

Television (Full Length) – 1963

I tried to summarise our budget of 1963 by saying that our policy now was 'Forward with National, at an ever-increasing pace'.
– Keith Holyoake shares National's catchy 1963 slogan
I read in the newspaper the other day that doctor [Martyn] Finlay, President of the Labour Party, said we should be rude to France. Well if being rude would achieve something I don't mind being rude at all, but we have made the strongest possible protest...
– Keith Holyoake on differing approaches to foreign policy
I must say here that I am delighted that the public opinion, including the Labour Party and other parties, has swung in behind the government in its very strong protests to the French government.
– Keith Holyoake praises New Zealand's non-partisan opposition to French nuclear testing in the Pacific
