4:06 The Sunday Feature: The 2014 Rutherford Lectures - Experiments Across Worlds

Rivers: Whanganui was the venue for Dame Anne's final talk 'Rivers - Give Me the Water of Life'. This lecture begins by discussing the settlement between the Whanganui River hapu and iwi and the government in August this year that recognised the Whanganui River status as a legal person in its own right. She discusses our relationship with rivers, including the Whanganui, examining Maori and modernist ideas about freshwater and how experiments between these ways of thinking might allow us to have rivers that we can swim and fish in again (F, RNZ)
