Made as a promo for the album of the same name by Melbourne-based musician Lance Ferguson, this short documentary covers a golden era of New Zealand music. The documentary focuses on Ferguson’s grandfather, the late Bill Wolfgramm, who released NZ’s first pop album South Seas Rhythm in 1957. Ferguson talks with another legend, Bill Sevesi, who played with Wolfgramm, and visits Auckland's Museum of Transport and Technology, which holds a special significance for him and his family. Included is rare footage of historic TEAL flying boat Aranui in flight.
Bill was very - a fine steel guitar player. He was rated number nine in the world ratings. I was rated number 27. That was a big difference ... but when it came to shows and dances and all that, he said "Bill ... You're better! You go and do it."– Bill Sevesi, on working with Bill Wolfgramm
