Burton Shipley - New Zealand's "First Man" of Politics

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:19 pm on 27 November 2019


In 1997, Burton Shipley became the very first "First Man" of politics in New Zealand, after his wife Jenny Shipley was sworn in as the first woman Prime Minister of New Zealand.

He's now a leader of sorts in his own right having just been appointed vice-president of the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) earlier this month. 

He's our Bookmarks guest today and will share his favourite books, music, movies and art.
