Tony Robinsonís Tour of Duty Community Day at Otago Boysí High School this Sunday 30th March at 12.30pm. - 26th Mar 2014

Tony Robinsonís Tour of Duty Community Day at Otago Boysí High School this Sunday 30th March at 12.30pm. DUNEDIN: Sunday 30 March, 12.30pm to 5.30pm
TOUR OF DUTY CALLS SIR TONY ROBINSON BACK TO NEW ZEALAND
Legendary British actor, comedian, historian and television host Sir Tony
Robinson, returns to New Zealand this month, to film a brand-new series for
SKY’s History Channel, Tony Robinson’s Tour Of Duty.
Tony Robinson’s Tour Of Duty follows on from two successful seasons of
Tony Robinson’s Time Walks on History Channel, which most recently featured
Wellington and Christchurch.
This brand-new, 10-part series will air on the History Channel early in 2015 and
be part of the channel’s continued commemoration of the 100 years of service
for those who fought for their country, from WWI to the present day.
Tony Robinson’s Tour Of Duty focuses on the lives of people who went to war
and those who stayed at home, both heroes and ordinary people – and what war
means to Kiwis and Aussies, then and now.
Throughout the series, Sir Tony will visit towns in New Zealand and Australia to
meet the relatives and friends of those who fought in battle. He will encourage
local residents to come forward with memories from their family’s role in the
many campaigns, spread across a century of service to their countries.
The first part of each episode will feature Sir Tony exploring the town, telling war
and homefront related stories and meeting locals along the way. The second half
will focus on a community event hosted by Sir Tony in each town, which will
bring locals together to share their family’s stories of wartime, display
memorabilia and tell us what going to war means to them in the 21st century.
The New Zealand leg of Sir Tony’s Tour of Duty, will see him travel to Dunedin
and Auckland with two community events, Sunday 30 March at Toit? Otago
Settlers Museum and Sunday 5 April at Auckland’s War Memorial Museum. The
public are welcome at both events.
Sir Tony Robinson was awarded a Knighthood in November 2013 for public and
political services. He is best known for his role as ‘Baldrick’ on the cult British
comedy series Blackadder, as well as his hosting role on long-running
archaeology series Time Team.

DUNEDIN: Sunday 30 March, Otago Boys’ High School, 2 Arthur Street,
Littlebourne 9016. 12.30pm to 5.30pm
Tony Robinson’s Tour Of Duty will screen on History Channel next year.
