Fragments: First-hand accounts of the February 2011 Earthquake Episode Six

From Fragments, 7:00 am on 5 March 2021

Staff and parents deal with wet, shocked children at QEII Park; a good neighbour suffers a life-changing accident; a maternity nurse saves a badly injured man; a wife waits for news of her missing husband; a St John ambulance officer deals with impossible conditions and a journalist on maternity leave finds herself inside her biggest story.

'Fragments: First-hand accounts of the February 2011 Earthquake' is available from 22 February on Apple, Spotify, Google Podcasts - all the podcast apps - and of course at RNZ.co.nz

Produced and presented by Katy Gosset. Co-produced by Justin Gregory. Original interviews recorded by Christchurch documentary producers, Sandra Close and Julie Hutton in the months immediately after the 2011 quake, as a means of securing a valuable archival record for the people of Canterbury.
