How well I remember this era. We bought a house in what is known now as Clover Park in 1976. I literally watched the Manukau City Council building going up day by day out of my windows. Then the City Centre etc. etc. The surrounding area was all fields and I considered myself to be living out in the country! No phone and three pre-schoolers. Terrible. Luckily I had a car though which a lot of women didn't, as their husbands took the car to work each day. But Manukau Council did work very hard to get facilities started just as the mayor says in this doco. The back road across to Howick from East Tamaki Road was just a country road full of potholes along the way. Today I am amazed at the urban sprawl it has become. Take me back please!

I'll watch this again, as I found it really interesting. If Neil Roberts, Alan Thurston and George Andrews were to go back and follow up or see what changes have occured would even be more amazing...I believe that every South Aucklander who was growing up at the time should watch this...steven n manukuo
