Radio New Zealand has just launched a 30-minute online video about the Battle of Ruapekapeka in 1845. It also covers some of the other battles from the campaign.

There's also a very good virtual reality tour of the battlefield as it appeared in 1845.

Visit my blog for more information, screenshots, and a link so you can watch the full movie and take the VR tour:


As a taster, here are a couple of screenshots showing some of the amazing animations that appear in the movie (what inspiring pics for we wargamers!):
