Weta Workshop has signed on to bring a piece of New Zealand’s World War One history alive. 

The project is a memorial museum and visitor centre, in the small French town Le Quesnoy. 

It will tell the story of a pivotal moment in the first world war, where New Zealand led the liberation of Le Quesnoy. 

To talk me through the project I am joined by Weta Workshop Senior Creative Director, Andrew Thomas. 

And last year on Anzac Day we spoke to New Zealand Memorial Museum Trust – Le Quesnoy Chairman Sir Don McKinnon about this project while it was still in the fundraising stages. 

Andrew Thomas and Sir Don McKinnon joined Francesca Rudkin.
