Inside issue 134 (October - November 2018)
 


Who recalls the popular radio documentary series Spectrum? Broadcaster Alwyn Owen, a founding member of the Spectrum team in 1972, remembers hauling equipment around the country during his early years on the job; the reel-to-reel tape recorder only allowed fifteen minutes of recording time per tape in those days. The result is a valuable oral footage now held at Sound and Film Archives. Alwyn has chosen to reflect on a few unforgettable interviews in our leading article illustrated by some legendary photographs.
 
Bombardier Hilda relates her account of serving on Motutapu Island during the Second World War.
 
Settlers to New Zealand are featured in two of our main articles. The Plymouth Company ships arrived in the 1850s and the challenges of shipboard exploits and conditions once ashore in Taranaki are highlighted in an excellent article by Andrew Moffat. One hundred years later, young Enda McBride arrived from Dublin and tells a very different story.
The poignant poem Battle of the Somme on page 48 serves to mark the 100th Anniversary of the end of The Great War. Lest we forget.
