Kua tī-mata te wiki o te reo Māori - Māori Language Week has begun - and to kick it off a roaring parade made its way down central Wellington, drawing hundreds of spectators.

As Te Aniwa Hurihanganui reports, 20 thousand people have registered to take part in six parades across the country this week to celebrate te reo - the biggest response organisers have ever had.
