Second in a ten-part series about the Treaty of Waitangi that is part-personal odyssey, part-quest for understanding – but not without its funny side. LOST IN TRANSLATION finds comedian Mike King looking for descendants of signatories and people who have ‘neat yarns’ about the signing of the Treaty.  He hits the road, retracing the journey of the nine separate documents that were signed throughout New Zealand in 1840 and now make up the Treaty. In the course of his travels, Mike tells the story of people who, like his great-great-great grandfather, signed the document as well as others who did not.  He’s also gathered personal stories from everyday New Zealanders about the characters and events that surrounded the inception of this country’s founding document.
