These are the deleted scenes from the New Zealand Defence documentary project
– currently used by ‘our boys’ at the Trentham military officer college
to help clue them up on why they have the job that they have.
Seventeen independent commentators discuss defence issues and present informed opinions
on the future security of New Zealand.
The commentators are
authors, historians, retired diplomats, broadcasters, scientists, journalists, newspaper editors and ex-servicemen.
This is the section that deals with ‘Media’
and because this is the documentary’s deleted scenes – it’s not dressed with music and images
so it’s a bit of a talking heads fest
but none the less – and despite their differences in opinion
they’re all talking common sense
– about the newspapers that you read and the television that you watch.
it’s about why you think the things that you do.
