To mark the 100th year of radio in Aotearoa New Zealand, we present this selection of radio documentaries from Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision for your listening pleasure.
Painting a picture with sound, each of these six documentaries captures the voices and ambient sounds of a time past.
They’re just a few of the thousands of radio documentaries cared for by Ngā Taonga. You can explore the whole catalogue, and revisit these ones at any time, at www.ngataonga.org.nz
