Dr Hirini Melbourne of Ngai Tuhoe and Ngati Kahungunu was a significant leader in the revival of Maori culture through his waiata and use of taonga puoro. From our 'Composer of the Week' series in 2010, Paul Diamond presents six programmes looking at the life and work of the late Dr Hirini Melbourne.
