First Lady Mayor

Nga Taonga Sound and Vision is also about to release a restored copy of New Zealand's second oldest surviving film.

Film Conservator Dr Leslie Lewis worked on the restoration of the First Lady Mayor, filmed in 1900,  as well as the Bastion Point documentary. 

In fact she's had to do a lot of detective work on The First Lady Mayor of the British Empire, as well as working with a very fragile master copy. 

Check out the restored First Lady Mayor, filmed in 1900 below!
