Sir Ed came to the 1994 NBA Conference that was held in Tauranga, and gave a short talk. He charged nothing for being there. We paid by both donations and he sold a hell of a lot of signed $5 bills to support his Himalayan Trust.

It was a pretty magical evening.

The video is about 20 minutes long, and about 100MB (for those of you on dial up!). The volume starts out low, but at about 45 secs in it improves and is fine for the rest...

I have Cliff Van Eaton (who had this tape all these years) and *probably* Frank Lindsay, who probably did the filming, to thank for this bit of NZ beekeeping memorabilia.
