Full Description

NFU Film Information Sheet No. 389 Cat. Refs. 1973 p.40; 1977 p.52. Colour 16 mins. 35mm 1,450 ft. Nine men on lonely Raoul Island - a dot in the Pacific Ocean - feed weather information to New Zealand, servicing the International Forecast System. Their days are peaceful enough, but the volcanic island has a history of hardship and despair, and these elements - the quiet present, the unruly past - are mingled in this film.
