From First Up, 5:16 am on 15 July 2021

Around 25 years ago, legendary Kiwi actor, director and artist Ian Mune was captivated by the sight of a mountain in Northland. Since then he's often wondered which of Northland's many peaks it was. Then, a couple of weeks back, Ian's son took him for a drive around the far north and eventually, near the town of Mangonui, they found it. Nathan Rarere asked Ian about the first time he saw the maunga all those years ago.
