Wellington streets stand in for 1920s New York

From Morning Report, 8:50 am on 4 October 2022

Wellingtonians may notice a few streets in the centre city look a little bit different this week.

The city is acting as a stand-in for 1920s New York for the filming of an upcoming Taika Waititi TV show.

Time Bandits is a remake of a 1981 movie and follows the time-travelling adventures of an 11-year-old who discovers a portal is his bedroom.

Wellington NZ chief executive John Allen spoke to Corin Dann.
