South Wairarapa resident, Gerald Hensley, is one of New Zealand’s most distinguished public servants. He joined the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 1958 and served in Samoa, at the United Nations, the Commonwealth Secretariat and Washington DC, and in 1976 was High Commissioner in Singapore. In 1980 he became Head of the Prime Minister's Department where he served under both the Muldoon and Lange governments. He subsequently served as Coordinator of Domestic and External Security and as Secretary of Defence. After retirement in 1999, he published three books on New Zealand's diplomatic history, including 'Final Approaches', a volume of memoirs. He now grows wine in Martinborough.

In conversation with John Campbell, Gerald will describe fascinating encounters with world leaders and explore memories of the personalities of former New Zealand Prime Ministers.
