Have you discussed organ donation with your family?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Once upon a time a woman loved a man so much she gave a part of herself to save him. He was dying, so she let him have a piece of her body, and it made him well. And they lived happily ever after.

When a stack of rusty, dust-covered film cans was deposited with audiovisual archive, Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision by the family of freelance filmmaker Thomas H Whetton, it was a surprise to find much of the more than 80-year-old film inside those cans was in great condition. Amongst the 70+ cans the Archive’s preservation team discovered never-before-seen footage of the immediate aftermath of the 1931 Napier earthquake. This presentation takes you through the meticulous work Ngā Taonga did (and are still doing) to rescue that footage and the other taonga in the Whetton collection. The collection of Thomas Henry Whetton dating from the 1920s and 1930s is showcased in Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision’s Rust + Restoration | He Waikura He Whakauka exhibition currently on in the Te Puna Foundation Gallery at the National Library.

The tunnel is known for its controversial tooting traditions, and now composer Chris Winter will work his magic on the sound. Winter is calling it "Carcophony" - he just needs top tooters to sound their horns. What do you think? Can toots make music - or should we stop tooting and embrace silence?
