Sound Archives: The Coral Route

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:35 pm on 26 July 2017

Tahiti had a powerful hold on the popular imagination in the 1950s, films such as "Mutiny on the Bounty" and then later "South Pacific" had promoted the myth of the idyllic tropical island.

In today's visit to the sound archives of Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision we are back on The Coral Route, the famous TEAL flying boat tourist trail through the South Pacific of the 1950s.
