Full Description

NFU Film Information Sheet No. 504 Cat. Refs. 1977 p.63; 1984-85 p235; 1986-87 p.29. Colour 18 mins. 35mm 1,759 ft. 'The poetry of motion! The real way to travel! Here today in next week tomorrow! Always somebody else's horizon!' The words of the immortal Toad in 'The Wind in the Willows' provide the title for this film, made to mark the Tourist and Publicity Department's 75th Anniversary. Toad was revelling in the 'glory of the motor car' - and how it would change the course of history. Tracing the development of travel in New Zealand since the turn of the century, 'Somebody Elses Horizon' uses a blend of old and new film to present an entertaining summary of just how far we've come since touring for pleasure was the reserve of the rich, or the madly adventurous.
