Sound Archives: the 1930 Lions tour

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:35 pm on 21 June 2017

On June 21st 1930, the All Blacks met a touring British side for their first test at Carisbrook in Dunedin.  It was shocking weather with driving snow, but still a crowd of 28,000 people turned out. 

Sarah Johnston from Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision is here today to tell us about why this game has gone down in New Zealand media history.
