Nga Taonga patronage reception

Dame Patsy and Sir David hosted a reception to launch Nga Taonga's new patronage initiative. Nga Taonga are the keepers of New Zealand's sound and vision treasures and they're facing the massive task of preserving 200,000 betacam video tapes of TV footage from the 1980s. The tapes are deteriorating faster than they can save them and it's estimated they only have eight years before the tapes degrade completely. They're asking New Zealanders for help saving this valuable collection.
