Join us to take a step back in time to how Wellington used to be. Home movies, documentaries, television items and some of the earliest films made in New Zealand feature in this programme that take in the significance of Newtown Park as a place for official ceremonies, Springbok Tour protests at Athletic Park, and everyday occurrences such as rubbish collection in the 1930s.

There will be three screenings of the films:
