Bread & Circus – World Buskers Festival 2020.
A panel discussion with the makers of the brilliant new six-part podcast from Stuff and RNZ, about the 1979 Erebus air disaster.
In 1979 an airliner left Auckland bound for Antarctica. Hours later all 257 people onboard were dead.
Who was responsible? Was there a cover-up? How could this happen?
In White Silence, Michael Wright and Katy Gosset explore why New Zealand’s deadliest disaster was also its most controversial; why a nation was incapable of moving on; and why it was captured by one famous phrase: ‘an orchestrated litany of lies’.
Hear from the makers of the podcast about New Zealand’s deadliest, most controversial disaster and ask these questions for yourself.
