Camera soaring above inviting New Zealand bush and coastline and a cut to the NZ America’s Cup yacht under sail. The accompanying swelling music is joiner by a crooner: “Here’s to the winners / Lift up the glasses ..” The America’s Cup trophy is raised in triumph at this point. Montage of children involved in sport. “Here’s to the glory ..” Hand caressing sleeping child. Child holding kitten. Adult sporting achievements. These go on for some time - with an occasional Dame Kiri - and the song builds to a crescendo with images of (then- Prime Minister] Jenny Shipley. These are immediately followed by a New Zealand flag at full display in the breeze beneath onscreen lettering: “A Better Tomorrow Starts Today”. Then the National party logo.
