From Sunday Morning, 10:06 am on 24 April 2011

Ross Jennings produced the new documentary 'Nga Toa o te Moana-Nui-A-Kiwa - The Warriors of The Pacific' for Maori TV's ANZAC Day coverage. The documentary focuses on a 1943 battle on a heavily forested western Solomons island called Vella Lavella, which had been occupied by the Japanese. Ross talked to Chris about the struggle by the indigenous people and the support they received from New Zealand.
