Democracy Then - Political Advertising in NZ, 1960s-1990s
Curated by Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision
Political campaigning ain't what it used to be, and neither is the media coverage. Join us as we look back at party political broadcasts and election coverage from the mid-1960s to 1990.
You'll see politicians such as Bill Rowling, Robert Muldoon, David Lange and Jim Bolger pepper the people with promises, bamboozle them with facts and figures and denounce their opponents. All of the big issues of the past are covered: law and order, taxation and the state of the economy.
