In Jumping Sundays: The Rise and Fall of the Counterculture in New Zealand, award-winning writer and broadcaster, Nick Bollinger goes deep into the transformation of NZ life wrought by the counterculture in the 1960s and ‘70s.

Beards and bombs, freaks and firebrands, self-destruction and self-realisation during a turbulent period in New Zealand’s history and culture.

In conversation with RNZ’s Phil O’Brien
