The London Connection

Television (Full Length) – 1999

This 1999 documentary see presenter Gary McCormick exploring the lives of New Zealand expats living in London. London Kiwis – including MTV Europe head Brent Hansen, Angel at My Table actor Kerry Fox, chef Peter Gordon, house-boaters Karyn Hay and Andrew Fagan, and drunk backpackers at The Church – reflect on their overseas experience and the meaning of home. Produced alongside a companion documentary on Kiwis in Ireland, London Connection was a further collaboration between McCormick, director Bruce Morrison and producer William Grieve (Heartland). 

London has changed, but we've changed too. Kerry [Fox] and Nathan [Haines] are both part of redefining New Zealand in the world. We're losing the sheep and butter image, and putting together a new identity.
– Presenter Gary McCormick
