          A South Auckland petrol station is the setting for this independent drama about graveyard shift worker Tania (Sophie Henderson, also the film's writer and based on her one-woman stageplay), whose long nights are spent chipping away at the savings she needs to leave with her littl...e brother in search of their father. Raised Maori, Tania's bonds to her whanau underpin a life spent caring for her ailing mother during the day and preparing to take her brother Piwakawaka overseas. But as he leaves to pick kiwifruit and Tania is stuck at the gas station with a slack manager and an eagle-eyed regional supervisor, it seems she's not able to look after her family to the same extent. A product of the NZ Film Commission's Escalator scheme, this low-budget feature, shot in just 20 days, brings Henderson's piece to the big screen courtesy of first-time director Curtis Vowell

Among them is World War II's first Maori pilot, Porokoru Patapu Pohe (also known as John Pohe). He has only been in the camp for 6 months but in that time, he has managed to make his way up the list of escapees to number 65 of 220. He has completed a tour of duty and cheated death a number of times, earning himself the nickname Lucky Johnny. Turangaarere is the story of his incredible life.

          When making this Bookbinding DVD series master bookbinder PETER GOODWIN kept libraries, rare book departments and special collections in the forefront of his mind. This license allows libraries and institutions to do this in addition to normal services. In this DVD, master bookbi...nder Peter Goodwin shows how he approaches this unusual binding. At the same time he demonstrates how he binds the traditional half-bound leather book which is seen in libraries all over the world. To make the maps in an atlas lie straight with no thread showing requires a special sewing technique. He demonstrates the use of the "plough". This was the old fashioned method of cutting edges before the guillotine was invented. It is rarely seen today and written explanations are hard to understand. However once seen never forgotten. Colored hand-sewn head bands, paper repair and traditional half-leather binding are also covered in detail. It is a treat to watch Peter Goodwin show how easy it is for beginners to work with leather. His no fuss approach is refreshing.
