Selwyn Manning talks to David Robie

Welcome to Evening Report. This Friday, July 10, marks 30 years since French DGSE operatives exploded two bombs destroying the Greenpeace flagship — the Rainbow Warrior — at Marsden Wharf in Auckland harbour.

And on Friday July 10, journalist and academic Dr David Robie will launch the fifth edition of his book, Eyes of Fire.

The book is a rich account of the events surrounding the Rainbow Warrior affair.

And earlier today he joined me to discuss Eyes of Fire… why he was on board the vessel on its last journey through the Pacific, his enduring memories of the time, and what lessons the Rainbow Warrior affair offers us now and in the future.
