Environment with Alison Ballance

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:46 pm on 10 September 2009

For nearly forty years, the daily bird calls have been a regular and much loved feature of Morning Report. This year Forest and Bird honoured the man behind those bird calls with an Old Blue Award for his services to conservation. Alison Ballance met with John Kendrick at the Karori Sanctuary in Wellington to hear about his career as a sound recordist with the New Zealand Wildlife Service, and to find out how the Radio New Zealand bird calls came about.
