From homing pigeons on trawling boats, to classic '80s ads for sophisticated wines, and unique footage of the region both pre and post earthquake, Hawke's Bay on Film 1913 - 1985 captures what twentieth century life was like in the region, and how it changed.

Highlights include the 1929 promo Sunny Napier: The Brighton Of New Zealand, a beautifully made item by Harold M. Booker on the construction of Waipawa’s new railway bridge, and newsreel footage covering a royal visit to Jim Wattie's pea processing plant.

The compilation also includes silent films, which will have live musical accompaniment. Tickets can be purchased from the MTG Century Theatre, including door sales on the day.
