Presenter Michael McDonald introduces “a look at just some of then millions of feet of film held in our national archives”; the then-National Film Library.

Comprises clips from - in order - “The Royal Visit of the Duke & Duchess of Cornwall and York To New Zealand 1901" (then thought to be, according to Mr McDonald, “the earliest existing film footage in the country”), "Under the Southern Cross" (1927; the year is wrongly given as 1925), "Daughter of Christchurch" (1928; year wrongly given as 1926), "Hei Tiki" (1935) and "Bob Semple's Tank" (194-).

The presenter requests: “If anyone knows who owns the copyright of ‘Hei Tiki’, please get in touch with us at TV One because we’d quite like to screen the whole thing one of these days.”

Very beginning of programme missing.

“Good Day was launched in March 1978 to succeed Today at One with producer Tony Hiles promising ‘an entertaining magazine programme with the magazine aspect spread over the whole week’.” - NZ On Screen; ; 2/06/2016; retrieved 2/06/2016.
