This video shares the experiences of four Primary Health Care services; Urenui and Districts Emergency and Health Group; Newtown Union Health Service; Eketahuna Health Centre; Te Whare Rapuora Ki Porirua.

The members of these services show their enthusiasm for the primary health care approach, in providing information and ideas on how their
services were started and the issues community groups confront when they become involved in health care.

In rural Taranaki and Eketahuna, urban Newtown and Porirua health service were failing. The local people responded – overcame the obstacles & developed unique and appropriate primary health care services.

On October 15th 2007, activists around New Zealand woke to guns in their faces. Black-clad police smashed down doors, dragging families out onto roads and detaining some without food or water. In the village of Ruatoki, helicopters hovered while locals were stopped at roadblocks. Operation 8 involved 18 months of invasive surveillance of Maori sovereignty and peace activists accused of attending terrorist training camps in the Urewera ranges – homeland of the Tuhoe people. Operation 8 asks why and how the raids took place. How did the War on Terror become a global witch-hunt of political dissenters reaching even to the South Pacific?

Additional Description More Details

“Lost in Translation” follows comedian Mike King as he charts the bittersweet but often dramatic journey of the nine separate Treaty of Waitangi sheets as they traveled around New Zealand in 1840 collecting signatures.

King discovers who signed and who didn’t during this iconic period in New Zealand history. He talks to descendants – Maori and Pakeha -who shed new light on what was really going on in 1840.

Understanding the conflicting attitudes to the Treaty became a personal journey for the comedian. King has recently recovered from a stroke that almost killed him, and “Lost in Translation” became a way to re-connect with his Maori heritage.
