New Zealand Workers on Screen - On the Job

New Zealand Workers on Screen – On the Job

Russell Campbell, Adjunct Professor of Film at VUW and LHP Treasurer has compiled this incredibly comprehensive list of films and TV programmes featuring New Zealanders at work. Some are available to view online on youtube.com and NZ on Screen, the rest can reviewed at the medialibrary at Nga Taonga Sound & Vision in Wellington (www.ngataonga.org.nz).

This is the first of a number of labour history resources we hope to post on the LHP website in the coming year. Part two of the New Zealand Workers on Screen filmography is here: http://www.lhp.org.nz/?p=1177
