Presents an engaging mix of interviews, news archive and music clips to tell the stories of the bands, songwriters and entrepreneurs and the role they played in creating the soundtrack to New Zealanders’ lives over the past 45 years.

Screening today: Episode 3 – "Summer of Love"
It’s 1970, and in New Zealand the age of the big outdoor concert has arrived. The country's first two-day music festival is held. Young kiwis are taking their cue from the hippie counter-culture and the anti-Vietnam War movement. And, of course, this new alternative lifestyle needs its own soundtrack. Split Enz, Space Waltz, Hello Sailor and Dragon rise to the occasion with a new brand of original rock.

Screening as part of our Kiwi Music Film Fest season.
