National Treasures - Excerpts

Television (Excerpts) – 2020

National Treasures shines a light on historical objects and artefacts from Aotearoa's recent past. In an excerpt from the first episode, Michael Gullery presents an issue of Hero magazine and discusses the queer community's promotion of safe sex in the fight against AIDS in the late 1980s and 1990s, as well as commemorating its fallen heroes. Legendary Whakarewarewa Village guide Mākereti (Maggie) Papakura features in the excerpt from the second episode. Granddaughter June Grant presents Papakura's diary dating from 1911, and expert Matariki Williams discusses the Māori scholar's many achievements.
