The sinking of the Rainbow Warrior in Auckland Harbour (July 10, 1985) was an act of aggression which exposed this country to the unwholesome realities of international diplomacy.
Following the bombing, a decision had to be made about what to do with the ship. When it became obvious that restoration was financially unviable, it was decided to sink the ship in a position to allow access for divers.

The question was – where ?

Enthusiastic interest shown by Dover Samuels and the Ngati Kura people of Matauri Bay in Northland led to the Warrior coming to rest in the waters off the island of Motutapere.

Additional Description More Details

The Warrior is a reminder and tribute to the ideals and dreams of pacifism and conservation. However, she is only accessible to a select few. In an attempt to create a memorial accessible to all comers, the people of Matauri Bay commissioned internationally recognised NZ sculptor Chris Booth to create a large freestanding sculpture of stone overlooking the last resting place of the ship.

The Price of Fish

Price: NZ$35.75

Libraries and institutions etc., price on request.

Format: DVD
Aspect Ratio: 16:9
Duration: 44 mins
Year: 2012

Additional Description More Details

The Price of Fish investigates the ways foreign charter fishing vessels – so called ‘slave ships’ – are plundering New Zealand fish stocks and abusing their Indonesian crews.

The NZ domestic fishing fleet is in trouble. In the last 10 years the number of boats has halved.

Russian and Korean factory trawlers are plundering NZ waters and they are paid by NZ companies to do it. Many NZ companies own or lease quota and instead of using Kiwi fishing boats to catch it, they charter foreign trawlers.

Some of these foreign trawlers demonstrate a cavalier attitude to NZ law, marine regulations and sustainable fishing practices.

Kiwi film-maker Guye Henderson investigates allegations of deliberate over-fishing, doctored catch reports, illegal dumping and the mis-treatment of Indonesian crews, including physical and sexual abuse.

This documentary will shock you.

In 1975 Joan Wiffen a former Hawkes Bay housewife and self – educated palaeontologist discovered a dinosaur bone in the Mangahuanga Stream and revolutionised our ideas about ancient New Zealand.

Come with us as we return with Joan into the rugged New Zealand back country to rediscover the timeless stream where she found the fossil remains of huge dinosaurs that vanished mysteriously 65 million years ago after the so-
called KT Event.

Ancient creatures come to life and leap from the pages of a palaeontologist’s notebook in state of- the- art 3D animations.

Expect action, adventure and a thrilling journey back through time. But also expect to meet some of the worlds most respected palaeontologists as we try to unravel the mystery of where these giant creatures came from and why they disappeared.
