12:40 Bastion Point publicly screened for the first time
No broadcaster dared to screen it and the police tried to confiscate it, which is why Merita Mita's landmark documentary about the Bastion Point conflict was rare to see in the 1970s. But nowadays attitudes are changing and it's about to be publicly screened for the first time.
Sarah Davy and Honiana Love talk about what they've been able to achieve and filmmaker Leon Narby, who was filming that day, takes us back.
Leslie Lewis worked on both the Bastion Point documentary and the restoration of the second oldest surviving film in New Zealand The First Lady Mayor, which was filmed in 1900. She had to do a lot of detective work on The First Lady Mayor, as well as working with a very fragile master copy.
