1966 Toehold On A Harbour
A New Zealand Film Unit Production... A swinging, sometimes humorous treatment of the theme that the character of Wellington has been shaped by its peculiar location. Flanked on one side by steep hills and on the other by a deep harbour, the city has grown on a site more perpendicular than horizontal. People run 'obstacle races' down zigzags to reach the city centre. Great ships are berthed at the quays alongside. A bright fringe of beaches curves for 32 miles around. Like the country, New Zealand's capital is a place of contrasts. Courtesy Archives New Zealand.
