Solving the World's Problems

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:23 pm on 19 July 2018

This is our fortnightly attempt to solve the world's problems one small thing at a time.

NZ Herald senior writer Simon Wilson debates the pros and cons of building a statue of Papatūānuku at Bastion Point. Simon looks back on the public reaction around iconic statues such as the Eiffel Tower and the Sydney Opera House when they were proposed.
