THE NEW lEAD STAMP COLLECTORS HANDBOOK

A CENTURY OF CINEMA IN NEW ZEALAND

rs-~~


CENTENARY OF CINEMA IN NEW ZEALAND DATE OF ISSUE: To be confirmed

While it may be celebrating its first centenary (the first public screening of motion pictures in New Zealand took place on Tuesday 13 October 1896 at the Opera House, Auckland), cinema is not old yet. The aim of the Centenary is to celebrate moving image hetitage and culrure in New Zealand, ro ensure an awareness of the production and exhibition of film in this country and herald the second century of cinema. A major part of the celebration of the Centenary is the stamp series produced by New Zealand Post. When it premiered at Auckland's Lyric Theatre on 17 August 1914, Hinemoa became rhe first fearure film ro be made in rh is country. Produced by George Tarr on an inirial budget of only ÂŁ50, it was filmed over eight days in Rotorua by Charles Newham. The film started Hera Tawhai Rogers as Hinemoa. Between 1940 and 1970 there were only three locally produced dramatic feature films made in New Zealand and all were made by a Wellington company, Pacific Films, which almost single-handedly kepr the idea of an independent film industry alive through these lean years. The first of their features was Broken Barrier, made in 1952 by Roger Mirams and John O'Shea, a poignant story of a Maori woman falling in love with a Pakeha man and "facing the challenge of prejudice!" The film starred Kay Ngarimu and Terence Bayler. The arrival on Waitangi Day 1980 of a yellow mini on screens around rhe country announced the first great popular success of the New Zealand film industry - Geoff Murphy's wildly energetic and funny Goodbye Pork Pie. The film starred Tony Barry and Kelly Johnson as two desperates in a stolen mini heading from Kaitaia ro Invercargill.

The firsr public film screening rook place in Auckland on 13 Ocrober 1896. This stamp issue commemorates the cemenary of cinema in New Zealand, and continues a

worldwide celebrarion of rhe 'coming of age' of rhe film industry. The

ew Zealand Film Archives were instrumental in the selection

of these four films. each of which is considered imporr3nr in the development of rhe film indusrry in ew Zealand.

Once Were ""rriors ($1.80) was the most successful

No film, however provoked as much public and critical attention as Once Were Warriors, directed by Lee Tamahori in 1994. Nobody predicted it would be such an asronishing success - it is devastating, violent and scary - bur ir was seen by a third of the New Zealand population, our-grossing even Jurassic Park and The Lion King ar the box office. All the films fearured on these stamps are abour New Zealand, by ew Zealanders, and represent some of the excitement, richness and diversiry of film making in ew Zealand over the past one hundred years.

Dear Customers In the October 1995 issue of Focus, I inuoduced the concepr of a loyalry ptogramme for New Zealand Posr's philarelic customers. I am very pleased ro be able to announce thar the ptogramme called Stamp Points has been developed and is now under way. Stamp Points recognises customers who purchase philatelic products from the Philatelic Bureau or one of the Philatelic Sales Centres on a regular basis. On the next few pages Stamp Points is outlined, with information on the points system, eligibiliry, the different rewards available, and the full terms and conditions of the programme. I recommend you take the time to read this information, and then you can relax and look forward to your points building up over the commgyear. Yours in philately,

Basil Umuroa

It is very easy to be a part of Stamp Points. As the name suggests, Stamp Points is based on the accumulation of points which relate to the amount of money spent by a customer on philatelic products. Every dollar you spend on philatelic products with the Philatelic Bureau or at one of the Philatelic Sales Centres, entitles you to one Stamp Point. Points can be accumulated until the end of 1996. On your enclosed order form, you have been credited with Stamp Points based on your purchases from I January 1996 until now. Collectors who prefer to buy their philatelic products from one of the three Sales Cenrres can join the Stamp Points programme using Stamp Points Cards which are available from the Sales Centres. Unfortunately at this stage we are unable to offer the programme to customers who may purchase philatelic products from sources other than the Philatelic Bureau and the Philatelic Sales Centres. Once you reach the base enuy level of 150 Stamp Points you will be able to seleer from a range of rewards including the "Best of '96", a special set of miniature sheets featuring $1.80 stamps from nine 1996 stamp issues, as well as high quality stamp art prints and a stamp arr calendar. The "Best of '96" miniature sheets set has been produced specifically for the Srarnp Points programme.

CHILDREN'S

HEALTH DATE OF ISSUE: 5 June 1996 The 1996 Health stamps promote road safety for children. The risk of accident on New Zealand's busy roads is great and every care needs to be taken to ensure young children can safely operate in this environment. The 40c stamp (+ 5c surcharge) shows a small child in a child's car restraint seat. The 80c stamp (+ 5c surcharge) shows a child on a pedestrian crossing holding an adult's hand. Both of rhe stamps, de~igned by Helen Casey of Wellington, are simple reminders of the type of actions which are necessary to prevent child accidents. For the first time, the 40c (+ 5c surcharge) Health stamp is also being produced in self-adhesive rolls of 100 stamps. New Zealand Post donated $121,000 to the Children's Health Camps from the sale of the 1995 Health Stamp issue.

On 26 October 1946, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra (then known as the National Orchestra) assembled for its first rehearsal. Since that time, after three name changes, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra has become one of New Zealand's greatest cultural assets, performing over 100 concerts throughout New Zealand annually. The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra is the largest musical contributor to the biennial New Zealand International Festival of the Arts, the provider of players for rhe New Zealand Chamber Orchesrra, a partner of the Royal New Zealand Ballet on narional tours, and rhe manager of the New Zealand Youth Orchestra. The stamps commemorating the 50th anniversary of the NZSO will depict popular musical instruments - the violin on the 40c stamp and a gleaming French horn on the 80c stamp - with a musical score appearing as the background. The musical score depicted is written by Gareth Farr, and is one of the pieces written to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the orchestra.

c.xtinct Bi~ds Date of Issue: 2 October 1996 About 35 species of bitd have become extinct in New Zealand ovet the 1000 years since humans arrived. Many of the bitds wete the largest of their kind anywhete in the world - such as the moas, the adzebill and the eagle. Many of New Zealand's early birds lost the power of flight, an abiliry unnecessary in an environment with virtually no competitots or ptedators. The artival of mammals, however, resulted in the decline and ultimate extinction of many species through destruction of habitats and predation. Six denominations of sheet stamps are due fot telease, as well as a 40c stamp booklet.

40c - Adzebill (Aptornis otidiformis) The Adzebill was the size of a turkey and well adapted for digging, with a latge beak, and powetful feet. Being flightless, this species fell an early victim to humans, dogs and tats.

80c - Laughing Owl (Sceloglaux albifacies) The last recorded sighting of the Laughing Owl was in 1914. Unlike most other owls, this species appeats to have been more adapted to hunting on the ground, fully utilising its long, powerful legs.

$1.00 - Piopio (Turnagra capensis)

The Piopi~ is considered to be a ptimitive relative of the bowet bitds and birds-of-paradise of Austtalia and New Guinea. In the early 1800s, it was one of New Zealand's more common native bitds.

$1.20 - Huia (Heteralocha acutirostris) The Huia was the only species of bird in the world whete the male and female had differently shaped beaks. The striking plumage of the Huia was prized by the Maoti for cetemonial purposes, and early Europeans killed thousands to stock museum collections and to supply the fashion industty.

$1.50 - Giant Eagle (Harpagornis moorei) This was the largest eagle known, atmed with massive talons. The Giant Eagle was a forest dweller, flying low ovet the tops of New Zealand fotests, tathet than soaring high in the ait.

$1.80 - Giant Moa (Dinornis giganteus) The latgest of the 11 Moa species, this was one of the biggest birds in the world and was most common in the South Island. The Giant Moa stood up to two metres to the top of its back, and weighed up to 250 kilograms.

40c booklet - Stout-legged wren (Pachyplichas yaldwyni) About 10 cm in length, the stout-legged wten was unique in being amongst the smallest flightless birds in the world. The powetfullegs and feet, so prominent in this stamp, enabled this bird to move about the forest floot mote like a mouse than a bird. PLEASE NOTE: FINAL STAMP ARTWORK WAS UNAVAILABLE AT THE TIME OF PRINTING FOCUS.
