Anzac Day Collection This documentary gave NZ viewers, for the first time, a Turkish view of the Gallipoli story. Produced for TVNZ and Turkish TV, it focuses on four young people, two Turks and two New Zealanders, descended from Gallipoli veterans, as they explore the grim reality of their ancestors’ experience. Six Māori Battalion soldiers camped in Italian ruins wait for night to fall. In the silence the bros-in-arms distract themselves with jokes before a tohu (sign) brings them back to reality. The story of the New Zealand Army's (28th) Māori Battalion, this Tainui Stephens documentary tells the stories of five men who served with the unit. This seminal 1984 documentary tells the stories of the New Zealand soldiers who were part of the identity-defining Gallipoli campaign in World War I. Actor Wi Kuki Kaa plays a Vietnam War veteran who is dislocated by his war experience and homeless. A live broadcast (for TV One) of the Anzac Day dawn service at Waikumete Cemetery.

2014-2018: 100 Jahre Erster Weltkrieg - Contre l’oubli Le myosotis, ou "Vergissmeinnicht" en allemand ("ne m’oubliez pas"), est un symbole international du souvenir et des tendres adieux, et il est lié au souhait de continuer à exister dans la mémoire d’un être cher. Dans de nombreuses langues, il porte un nom qui a une signification similaire. Cette fleur a fait l’objet d’un grand nombre de poèmes et de chansons. Cette "fleur bleue" est un motif courant du Romantisme allemand ; elle représente la nostalgie et l’amour. Elle exprime entre autres l’aspiration vers un idéal, ainsi que la vanité de la recherche humaine du bonheur parfait. Beaucoup de jeunes gens qui se sont engagés volontairement au commencement de la Première Guerre mondiale,ignorant les cruelles conséquences de l’utilisation des armes modernes, étaient bercés par le Romantisme et ont idéalisé le dévouement personnel envers la patrie. En 1926, le symbolisme de la fleur de myosotis a été choisi par les francs-maçons comme signe de reconnaissance interne.
