Cruickshank on New Zealand - Better Relations with the Natives


Dan Cruickshank explores the consequences of the arrival of the British on the indigenous Maori people after Captain Cook's arrival in New Zealand in 1769, and how the European settlers adapted and exploited the many riches this new world had to offer. Dan is ferried out to sea, to a cove where Cook encountered friendly and inquisitive Maori, and both sides learned from each other.
