2:10 Feature stories
On Wednesday we told about the New Zealand Navy's search for unexploaded mines near the entrance to Lyttleton Harbour. The mines were left by a German minelayer in 1941. The Adjutant slipped into Lyttleton and then made it's way to the entrance of Wellington Harbour to lay 10 more mines. Official records kept at the time indicate that no one saw the Adjutant making mischief on that moonless night in June 1941. One of our listeners tells a different story. Maritime historian Bob McDougall says a former New Zealand Army artillery officer told him about what really happened on the night of 25 June 1941.
The Mutton Birds put Dominion Road on the map for most New Zealanders in 1992... calling it a road "shining like a strip cut from a sheet metal plate". It begins near Upper Queen street in Auckland and continues in a straight line for almost six kilometers through the suburbs of Mount Eden, Balmoral and Mount Roskill. The Auckland City Council is considering widening a 4.5km stretch of the road, to make way for separate bus and cycle lanes. The changes would also remove on street parking. Some residents say that will change the street forever.
