A documentary which chronicles the history of the creation of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa to mark 20 years since its official opening on 14 January 1998.

“Over almost three years, from 1996 to 1998, [Gaylene Preston and Anna Cottrell] shot 600 hours of video tape in and around Te Papa. Almost all of the footage was of the meetings where the concepts were hammered out for the displays that would fill the hulking museum on the Wellington waterfront..... Most simply it is a fascinating look behind the scenes of a historic project which, as creative and commercial interests collide, has many of the hallmarks of a thriller.” - Peter Calder, New Zealand Herald, 14/7/99
