Allan Davidson: Turbulent Priest

From Sunday Morning, 9:40 am on 11 March 2012

New Zealand's first Anglican bishop, George Selwyn holds an important place in the country's colonial history. He was denounced as a 'turbulent priest' for speaking out against practices that dispossessed Maori and upset many who held power in the new colony. Historian Allan Davidson tells Chris about the life and times of Bishop Selwyn, and his access to the heart of the Empire.
