Skeletons of New Zealand

Skeletons of New Zealand is a newly-completed production of two episodes, that run together or as standalone instalments, highlighting the lost histories of the country.

  • Under The Carpet
    Friday, August 17
    4:00 am on FNX 9.3
    Under the Carpet takes us back to our planet's oldest people: their origins and their incredible voyages across oceans and seas, the natural catastrophes that have wiped out whole nations leaving barren earth barely fit for habitation, the dogged survival techniques of people forced to become warriors to protect their families, and the resulting archaeological discoveries that remain to tell the tale. But this history is being hidden from New Zealanders, they are not taught about their ancient ancestry; decisions have been made to keep the truth hidden and write only what suits a political agenda. Gabi has uncovered information that can no longer be suppressed, will she be allowed to share it with the world, or will it, too, be removed from the shelves and filed under 'fiction'? There is a world beyond what the history books tell us, and Gabi is determined to find out what should have been written and what has been left out.

    Wednesday, September 12
    10:00 pm on FNX 9.3
    Skeletons in the Cupboard digs deeply into the now denied history of three early tribes, and the once powerful but peace-loving red or golden-haired, green-eyed early inhabitants: the Ngati Hotu and the Waitaha. Who are these people, where did they come from and where are they now? One woman's story of her ancestral folk lore leads to the local magazine article: 'DNA to Rock the Nation,' and sparks our controversial inquiry. Celebrated author, Barry Brailsford brings the story of Waitaha to life in an emotionally stirring interview. On viewing the film for the first time he remarked, 'It's the best documentary investigation of the old history and for the first time it gives a factual scientific basis to help the mainstream understand. Wonderful research.' The story takes us through ancient fairy stories while presenter Gabi Plumm hunts for proof of their existence. She delves into the history of the red heads and why they are slowly vanishing off the face of the earth. And they are not the only things that are vanishing. Evidence emerges of: missing archeological data and carbon datings that go back 4000 years, sites with seventy-five year embargoes pasted on them because of the age of the finds, skeletons with skulls the size of pumpkins destroyed and bulldozed over, and people too scared to talk.
