This episode of TV2’s 1980 weekly after school show features performances by resident band Kairo (covering the Doobie Brothers) and the Montgomery Sisters. In the field, Tracy Barr joins naval frigate HMNZS Waikato as it sails from Devonport Naval Base, under the Auckland Harbour Bridge and up the Waitemata Harbour to collect ammunition at Point Kauri, and then heads out to sea for gunnery practice. On board, Tracy chats to the captain, a chef and a laundryman (who irons 150 shirts every day) — the results of the exercise seem to be a military secret.
That is me you see up there on the screen, maybe not all of the time, but that is a part of me. I speak like that all the time, I giggle like that, I nod my head all the time, I move my feet all the time. My hair style is what I want.– Tracy Barr in the New Zealand Woman's Weekly, 10 November 1980
