Korean War, 50 Years Later
Minister for Ethnic Affairs Hon. George Hawkins said a documentary to be broadcast on Sky Television is an informative way to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Korean War.
The documentary titled the Korean War, 50 years later will be broadcast on Sky Television on the Arirang TV channel this Sunday [25 June 2000].
"The Korean War is perhaps one of the least know major conflicts of the past century," George Hawkins said.
"But the Korean community in New Zealand will, this weekend, be reflecting back on a part of their history that has impacted upon their lives for the past 50 years.
"This documentary will
examine how the war began, how it ended, what has happened
on the Korean Peninsula over the past 50 years, and it
examines what international ramifications have occurred as a
consequence of the war," George Hawkins
