Full Description

NFU Film Information Sheet No. 247 Cat. Refs. 1965-S p.13; 1967-68 p.35; 1973 p.52. Colour 31 mins. 35mm 2,800 ft. An evocation of life in a province that has a character all its own. Cut off by the sea in the west and by the Southern Alps in the east, the West Coasters have been famous since the early days for their rugged independence and open-hearted hospitality. The gold rush of the 1860s and many pioneering exploits have given Westland a romantic history. The film traces the development of coalmining since 1848, surveys the farms and industries and, not least, the many opportunities for sports and recreation in Westland. Viewing copies: 16mm film- W3471/r/192 (12K4) W3471/r/193 (12K4a) 1965 AS THE TWIG IS BENT
