Pavlova Paradise Revisited - Episode Three

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2002

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
Elite sports people doing well make us feel better about ourselves. New Zealand on a Monday after the All Blacks have won on a Saturday is a much better place to be, we’re much more productive, much happier.
– Trevor Mallard
Property is still huge in Auckland and that’s a sign of a frontier town rather than a mature town.
– Brian Gaynor
Real New Zealanders do come from the South Island, I appreciate that, but those of us who make things happen live in Auckland because this is where the world begins and finishes doesn’t it?
– John Banks
This week it’s Auckland, New Zealand’s only world-class city, the Polynesian capital of the world, the departure lounge for Sydney… or a sponge that sucks the rest of New Zealand dry, depending on where you come from.
– Austin Mitchell
It’s odd that an egalitarian society should be so good at the millionaires sport of yachting.
– Austin Mitchell
