Wellington 150th anniversary

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 24 July 2015

Wellington is celebrating 150 years as the county's capital this weekend. We speak to the artistic director of Barbarian productions who has a team of actors playing political 'agitators' on buses around the city - celebrating important pieces of legislation that have transformed New Zealand over the past 150 years. So if you're catching a bus to parliament this weekend, don't be surprised if you bump into a Kate Sheppard look-a-like!
