THE TIME OF OUR LIVES

ABOUT

2007, 45 minutes

This documentary follows a 32-strong 'mob of veterans' (the oldest is 95) on their trip to unveil a war memorial in London's Hyde Park. The memorial honours New Zealand's service in war alongside Britain. The ceremony took place on November 11, 2006, with attendees including Prime Ministers Helen Clark and Tony Blair, The Queen and ... Dave Dobbyn. For many of the elderly vets it is effectively their second OE; they remember war stories and lost mates, flirt with young journalists and endure the pitfalls of airport drudgery and jet-lag. 

The veterans march again with a pride in their past and their present, which is our pride too.
