Depicted at the rally were tasks re-enacted just as our forbears did. Then there were some special events not usually seen, such as the roading event, sawmilling, ditching and the great cook off. “One of the best rallies I have ever been to” one visiting enthusiast said.

2009 Arawhata-Bill

2009 Arawata Bill

This story is a journey through the Otago and Westland landscapes traversed by William O’Leary known as “Arawata Bill” using the iconic poems of
Denis Glover. A landscape which today is seldom visited. So awesome and intimidating that few would survive there. This isolated beautiful country was the home to
Arawata Bill for months at a time. Truly one of New Zealands legends. This programme is a tribute both to Bill, as the personification of the romantic old prospector
and to Denis Glover who through his poems has so ably captured the essence of his subject and his habitat as both a legendary person and an historic icon.

2008 The Whitehill Windfarm

2009 Construction of the White Hill Wind Farm
There are a lot of windy places in the South Island, and Mossburn in Northern Southland is one which is blessed – or cursed, depending on your viewpoint – with what
has been politely described as a “strong natural wind resource.” These days, such a resource, readily available and infinitely renewable, is valued for its
sustainability, and like other resources, it can be farmed – wind farmed.
This is the story of the construction of the White Hill Wind Farm Project.
