New Zealand A to Z - Otematata

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:20 pm on 14 May 2015

The little village that turned into a booming town while the Benmore dam was being built by the Electricity Corporation of New Zealand.

The dam is now operated by remote control, and Otematata is a small and peaceful Waitaki village once more.

Simon Mercep talks to locals Allan Bayliss, Vicky Munro and Mike Darling.
