Spectrum for 20 May 2012

'Ceud Mille Failte' - One hundred thousand welcomes to the 148th Turakina Highland Games. Every year since 1864, the tiny settlement of Turakina south of Whanganui has resounded to the skirl of the pipes. The tartans swirl as competitors strut their stuff in the Sword Dance or Half Tulloch, while in the field events, brawny men in singlets toss sheaf and caber. Amelia Nurse and Phillip Collins were on hand for Spectrum.
