Tonight's television highlight - I Am The River

Fascinating documentary aboutof the Partington collection of Whanganui photographs – their amazing discovery, the storm of protest that erupted over their ownership and sale, and the surprising resolution.

In 2001 a chance discovery of previously unknown photographs provided a rare visual insight into 19th century NZ history, and forged a link between Maori in the present with Tupuna in the past, but also provoked a cultural clash that pitted Maori and Pakeha views of ownership against each other.
