2:10 An historic Christchurch venue has been placed on the urgent demolition list

From the time it opened in the 1920s, the Winter Garden ballroom was the place to go for debutante balls and big-band concerts in Christchurch. Queen Elizabeth II even dined there during her visit in 1954. But this special part of Christchurch's history is over and the Armagh Street building has been placed on the urgent demolition list because of earthquake damage. Tiny Kirk is the chairman of the Trade Union Centre which has owned the building since 1984.

2:20 Lawrence Wharerau from the Film Archive

In the late 1930s Waikato leader Te Puea Herangi had a dream to build seven waka taua for the 1940 centennial commemorations at Waitangi. In the end only two waka were commissioned but cameraman James Manley was brought in to capture it all on film. The original footage remained untouched for almost 50 years until the Film Archive got permission to repair and preserve them. Mana Waka is to screen at the New Zealand International Film Festival, which opens this week.
