Pirates of the Airwaves

In 1966, rock 'n' roll had taken over, the sexual revolution was in full swing, and New Zealand was forging its identity as a nation away from its colonial ties. In this same year, a group of determined young men defied the government and launched a pirate radio station aboard a ship they moored in the Hauraki Gulf, outside of Auckland. Radio Hauraki, as it was known, operated from international waters for four long years, enduring storms, shipwrecks, financial woes, bureaucratic harassment and personal tragedy. In this innovative feature-length mix of drama, interviews, archival footage and sixties music, the real story of New Zealand's 'boat that rocked' is finally told.
