Veteran journalist and former TVNZ newsreader Richard Long discovers the intriguing history of the Auckland Harbour Bridge. From its planning by the son of a man who once ruled Russia, through its construction by the wave of new Kiwis from Britain in the 1950’s to the addition of the “Nippon Clip-on” from Japan, The Bridge tells the story of the people and events that have shaped this steel and concrete structure into a Kiwi icon.
You’ll meet people who have bungy jumped of it, crashed on it, marched over it in protest, been born on it and even fined for flying under it. And in the process you’ll discover a bit more about what it means to be a Kiwi.
