Frontier Of Dreams

This series spans the history of New Zealand from geological origins to Maori settlement and occupation, through the colonial period, the 20th century and into the new millennium.

Frontier of Dreams is the story of myths, perceptions and dreams. However, all dreams become victims to reality. The New Zealand Story is about cultural baggage and new clothing for a different climate. It’s about keeping some things and throwing away the rest and, as new waves of immigrants arrive, it’s about the ongoing dialogue between people and place. Produced by Whakapapa Productions.
