This short clip from a Māori Television documentary looks at the contribution of A. H. & A. W. Reed to the publication of Māori content. Margaret Mutu, Gavin McLean and Hirini Miko Mead talk about why Reed's books had such an important impact in the second half of the 20th century in communicating knowledge about Māori history and traditions among both Māori and Pākehā.
