Fallout: The Sinking of the Rainbow Warrior

Two blasts disturb the winter night and a ship lies submerged in Auckland Harbour. A ship dedicated to peace.

Thirty years later New Zealanders remember the sinking of the Rainbow Warrior, and the effect this act of international terrorism had on their lives.

"The tenth of July 1985 was the day I grew up …"

"That was the day I learned that if you want to fight for something you put your life at risk."

"It was when I realised that those who are arrogant enough to pollute the world with nuclear weapons testing wouldn’t hesitate to resort to terrorism to enforce their will."

"I think it was when New Zealand came of age."

Fallout: The Sinking Of The Rainbow Warrior looks at the effects that this act of international terrorism had on New Zealanders.
