What did New Zealanders think of Australia in 1961? | RetroFocus

“When I mention Australia, what’s the first thing you think of?”

The ABC’s Keith Smith crossed the Tasman for this 1961 NZ edition of ‘Voice of the People’.

Smith asked New Zealanders what they thought of Australians and Australia in general, and discovered some Kiwis didn’t even know what language Aussies spoke.

This episode of Four Corners aired 4 November 1961.
