Brit MP Austin Mitchell began his career as a lecturer and broadcaster in New Zealand the 60s (penning classic 1972 book The Half Gallon Quarter Acre Pavlova Paradise). In this final part of his 2002 return to Godzone he takes the pulse of Auckland in a pre-Supercity era with Banks as mayor and the America’s Cup in the cabinet. He also examines music and sport, ending the series with identity musings from Helen Clark, Sam Neill, and Michael King. Look out for a young Valerie Adams about 4'30" into clip four.

Research

New Zealand is isolated and insular and it’s very easy to become provincial in a place like this. It’s very easy to become smug and say this is god’s own country, there’s nothing better than this. It is blessed but there are many, many other great places in the world and it’s good for you to have a look at it.
– Sam Neill
