Gisborne moves its Captain Cook statue

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:18 pm on 3 May 2019

A statue of Captain Cook will move from its home of fifty years atop Titirangi Maunga in Gisborne to the local Tairawhiti Museum. The move comes after a lot debate over whether the statue should be removed, and ongoing vandalism. 

Tairawhiti Museum director Eloise Wallace explains what they're going to do with it.
