A series of short radio programmes produced in 1986 by Brendan Gray looking at some of New Zealand's more colourful historic hotels.

Lake Ianthe Tavern in South Westland once had a mobile licence so it could move as the road was pushed further south. Publican Carol Mulholland talks about some of the hotel's traditions and holding a drinking session in the bush once a year.
