Broadcaster and documentary maker Justin Gregory reflects on James McNeish’s “portrait” of John Mulgan.

In 1994, James McNeish wrote, narrated and produced a feature-length radio programme on a man he described as perhaps the “darkest” of New Zealand’s “dark horses”: writer, publisher and soldier John Mulgan.

The programme was broadcast on Radio New Zealand’s National Radio in April that year.
