Forgiveness:

Chris and Craig Brown are looking for their Dad, Les Brown. Chris runs an award winning butchery in Leeston, near Christchurch, while Craig is an engineer based in Gore. They last saw Les more than 30 years ago after he split from the boys’ mother when the boys were toddlers.

Chris and Craig want to know why Les never kept in contact.

Missing Pieces finds Les in Perth where he tells of the regret of abandoning his sons. He has never had other children and is overwhelmed to hear Chris and Craig are looking for him. He says he tried to find them after the Canterbury earthquakes but had no luck.

The reunion is one of the most powerful the Missing Pieces team have shot.

Wahine:

Whangarei early child care worker Lisa Penalver, 41, is part Maori. She was born in Wellington and then adopted. Her new parents moved to England where Lisa was raised.

Forty years on and Lisa is back in New Zealand trying to discover her cultural roots. She traced her Maori Mum 10 years ago and lives in Whangarei to be close to her. But Lisa cannot find her father.

The Missing Pieces search for Lisa’s Dad leads the team to the sinking of the inter-island ferry in Wellington in 1968 and one of the heroes of that terrible day.
