10 April (Note: 10am Start): Heritage consultant Michael Kelly talks about the early years of the old Government Buildings and its powerful symbol representing the development of our nation.

17 April: Retired architect Terence Broad talks about Victoria University's modern use of the old Government Buildings, and the character modern tenants give to old buildings.

24 April: Archaeologist Bruce McFadgen focuses on the 1855 Earthquake and what archaeology can tell us about the land we live on in Wellington.
