First broadcast in December 1987, Roimata Toroa – Tears of Greenstone, is the fourth and final programme in the Inspiration television series.

In Roimata Toroa, Ihimaera describes his writing as a “tangi to a people and to a life”, the life he experienced growing up in Waituhi during the 1950s. The programme follows him home to Waituhi and his marae on the East Coast.

The documentary includes readings from his works including Tangi, The New Net Goes Fising, Pounamu Pounamu, Whanau and the soon to be released The Matriarch.
