April 09, 2016 1 min read

Thanks to the national television archivists at NZ on Screen, you can now take a unique look at the New Zealand pipe band movement as it was during the 1980s.

"Wi' a Hundred Pipers" is a full-length documentary, first aired in 1985, that features highlights from the 1985 New Zealand Pipe Band Championship in Christchurch.

Included in the highlights are numerous pipe bands from across the country, including bands that are either currently active or defunct, as well as a selection of performances from the key competitive events of the time, such as the Quickstep, Street March, Medley, and Drum Major's Championship. 

You can see the documentary for yourself by following the link below:
