A people history
is the foundation of their future
Holder Christian's dream was
to record Norfolk's Oral history so that future
generations may be acquainted with early life
on Norfolk Island. In 1991 Holder and a small,
enthusiastic team began fundraising for a project
that became known as A Norfolk Legacy.
The Film and Television Department of the Queensland
College of Arts was contracted to create the film.
The story of Norfolk Island is told by numerous
islanders and begins with the discovery by Captain
Cook, includes information about the First and
Second Settlements and the arrival of the Pitcairners
in 1856. Reminiscences, poetry, humour and amazing
facts are included in this amazing DVD version
of the original film.
