Ours and other peoples’.
This documentary examines geopolitics and New Zealand’s national security and foreign policy from multiple perspectives.
Because it addresses national defence in New Zealand,

It has relevance for every person and country who has interest in the need, purpose and nature of national defence systems.
It was aired on New Zealand’s Rialto Channel in 2005.
