Kōrero: Marching teams and cheerleaders

Edinburgh Tattoo

In 2000 the Edinburgh Tattoo was staged in Wellington, and the Lochiel marching team gave a display of precision marching to famous film and television soundtracks. Here, both the current team and the seniors march to the tune 'The liberty bell', which is played at US presidential inaugurations, and which was also the theme from the British comedy television show Monty Python's flying circus.
