"Revolution - Fortress New Zealand"
NZ On Screen has just put up the first episode of the "Revolution - Fortress New Zealand" - one of the episodes of Marcia Russell's 1996 series mapping the social and economic changes in NZ society in the 80s and 90s.
"Revolution mapped the social and economic changes in New Zealand society in the 1980s and early 1990s. This first episode focuses on NZ's radical transformation from a heavily regulated welfare state to a petri dish for free market ideology. It includes interviews with key political and business figures of the day, who reveal how the dire economic situation by the end of Robert Muldoon's reign made it relatively easy for Roger Douglas to implement extreme and controversial reform. Revolution won Best Factual Series at the 1997 Film and TV Awards."
