In 1981 the South African 'Springboks' rugby team was invited to tour New Zealand. Its presence led to massive anti-apartheid protests across the country. During the final match of the tour protestors took to the air, throwing flour bombs at players and spectators from a light plane. Rebecca Kesby has been talking to Stu Wilson, one of the New Zealand team, and Marx Jones, one of the protestors.
