Rivalry between Protestant and Catholic Missionaries

Sunday March 15 at 8.30pm on Maori Television

Mike King hits the road to find out about the Treaty of Waitangi, who signed and who didn’t, and talks to descendants who shed new light on events in 1840. Tonight: As well as tensions between Maori and Pakeha, and between tribes, another rivalry was going strong at the time of the Treaty signing – between Protestant and Catholic missionaries. King explores this theme, and in the process finds himself on the trail of a mystery, as he goes in search of a sheet that never returned to Crown hands.
