In 1937, Hitler and the Nazi party organised a huge exhibition of modern art in Munich. It was designed to ridicule works of art which they disapproved of - they called it Degenerate Art. It went on to be one of the best attended modern art exhibitions of all time.
2:20 The West Coast Printer - George McKenzie - 59 years ago, a wide eyed teenager from Runanga on the West Coast walked into the Greymouth Evening Star newspaper looking for a job, and it changed his life.
George McKenzie started as an apprentice lino operator, spending nearly 6 decades working in the newspaper printing industry. 52 of those years were at the Nelson Mail, where he finally retired this week. He has helped get the newspaper out with historic headlines, including those involving his own family. His brother Dave famously won the Boston Marathon in 1967. Times and technology have changed dramatically since then, and now George Mckenzie has decided it is time to go.

3:20 Rockville Museum Steam Up Day - When Collingwood Museum was bursting it's seams, a few committee members approached the Golden Bay Dairy Company to buy its unused dairy factory at Rockville. Now freehold, the Rockville Machine and Settlers Museum opened in 1980, and three times a year the members host a steam-up. Visitors enjoy cream-laden scones made in the coal range, a demonstration on the history of washing, a visit to the old jail, watching the blacksmith at his forge, riding a horse and cart, and of course the many interesting displays in the museum – much of which comes from local homes where families go back generations.
Sage Forest attended on Labour Day and found more of interest than the contents. She takes a tour with Collingwood Museum president, Ivan Reilly.
Lorna Langford and Peter Foster the Rockville Museum.
