The Māoriland Hub presents a unique series of Screen Lectures about the facts and aftermath of The New Zealand Wars. Screenings of the influential The New Zealand Wars television series (1998) will be followed by informal lectures and forums for public discussion. Acclaimed Māori historians, commentators, and Professor Belich will answer questions and present new research about the Wars and their influence on our society today.
Anyone interested in the fascinating stories of our past and present are welcome to attend. We especially welcome teachers and students of history.
IIn this episode George Grey returns to the governorship in the wake of the costly Taranaki war. Now bitter, secretive and reluctant to share power, he talks peace while secretly planning to strike at the heart of the King Movement in Waikato. As gunboats patrol the Waikato river and a great road is painstakingly built to take his army south, Grey fabricates plots and conspiracies, convincing London to send more troops and ships, until the military balance of power tips in his favour.
