Four former PMs attend event to mark the publication of 'The 9th Floor'

Almost 350 people packed Te Marae at Te Papa on Friday to attend an event to mark the publication of The 9th Floor: Conversations with New Zealand Prime Ministers

Four former Prime Ministers talked together - the Rt Hon Jim Bolger, the Rt Hon Helen Clark, the Rt Hon Sir Geoffrey Palmer and the Rt Hon Dame Jenny Shipley. In conversation with authors Guyon Espiner and Tim Watkin, they reflected on the experience of being Prime Minister, today's media landscape, Treaty settlements, immigration, the future of work, and much more.

The crowds were seated on the floor and standing at the back. The talk was live-streamed and can be watched here: RNZ or Stuff.
