Sound Archives: The Sesquicentennial

From Afternoons, 1:39 pm on 31 January 2018

New Zealand was on a "Sesqui" high 28 years ago. January 1990 marked the start of our Sesquicentennial year, commemorating 150 years since the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi. 

The year kicked off with the Commonwealth Games in Auckland and then our focus turned north, to Waitangi itself on February 6. 

In today's visit to the sound archives of Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision with Sarah Johnston, we are going to re-visit Sesquicentennial year 1990.
