Mystery at Midge Bay

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:20 pm on 20 November 2012

New Zealand's newest earliest ship wreck is the subject of a documentary that aims to re-write maritime history. Up until now, the trader ship Endevour is thought to have been the earliest wreck in the country. She ran aground in Fiordland in 1795. But film-makers David Sims and Winston Cowie have spent the last few years investigating a shipwreck that may be even older than The Endevour.
