          On the 24th of March 1944, two hundred and twenty allied airmen huddle silently in a German POW camp in Poland. After months of planning, they are about to attempt an escape of unbelievable magnitude and logistics. The event will be recorded in history and known as The Great Esca...pe. Among them is World War II's first Maori pilot, Porokoru Patapu Pohe (also known as John Pohe). He has only been in the camp for 6 months but in that time, he has managed to make his way up the list of escapees to number 65 of 220. He has completed a tour of duty and cheated death a number of times, earning himself the nickname Lucky Johnny. Turangaarere is the story of his incredible life.

          When making this Bookbinding DVD series master bookbinder PETER GOODWIN kept libraries, rare book departments and special collections in the forefront of his mind. This license allows libraries and institutions to do this in addition to normal services. In this DVD, master bookbi...nder Peter Goodwin shows how he approaches this unusual binding. At the same time he demonstrates how he binds the traditional half-bound leather book which is seen in libraries all over the world. To make the maps in an atlas lie straight with no thread showing requires a special sewing technique. He demonstrates the use of the "plough". This was the old fashioned method of cutting edges before the guillotine was invented. It is rarely seen today and written explanations are hard to understand. However once seen never forgotten. Colored hand-sewn head bands, paper repair and traditional half-leather binding are also covered in detail. It is a treat to watch Peter Goodwin show how easy it is for beginners to work with leather. His no fuss approach is refreshing.

And what happens when the time comes for Willie the pet pig to hit the dinner platter?

From breaking in the veggie patch to selling off the home made pickle and home grown spuds... life Off The Radar is filled with ups and downs of living in small town New Zealand, relying on the neighbours for a hand and batt
