Originally aired on Jack Perkins Retrospective, Tuesday 30 December 2008
In the Wairau valley, south of Blenheim, lies the farm of Whacker Anderson. With his cobb homestead, innumerable pet animals, peg-leg and warm heart, he's something of a Marlborough legend. Jack Perkins toured the farm in a London taxi cab.
