Crump – A Wandering Star


Two years after the death of Barry Crump – Kiwi icon and ‘good keen man’ – his wives, lovers, mates and children talk frankly for the first time on television.

Crump was notorious for ‘shooting through’ on his various families, yet many New Zealanders idolised him.

He wrote 23 books and starred in TV shows, commercials and real life dramas, and his battered face adorns a postage stamp.

Whether you loved him or loathed him, this is a compelling and entertaining study of a complex New Zealand hero – Crump – a Wandering Star.

(Best script Colin Hogg; finalist Best Director, 1999 TV Awards.)
