Pavlova Paradise Revisited - Episode Two

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2002

This second episode of the three-part series following British MP Austin Mitchell’s return to the country where he began his career in (as a broadcaster and author of 1972 book The Half Gallon Quarter Acre Pavlova Paradise) sees a focus on politics. The former Canterbury University political scientist gives a potted political history, from the roots of a conservative Kiwi political mien to the radical changes wrought by Lange’s 80s Labour government and the rise of women ‘on the hill’. Finally he considers tourism, Treaty settlements and the aspirations of Māori.

The fisheries settlement is not a cornucopia of instant welfare cheques. The fisheries settlement is a right to own some capital. It’s the equivalent of owning a paddock.
– Sir Tipene O’Regan, Former Chairman, Ngai Tahu Maori Trust
