After it opened in 1921 the Wellington dental nurse clinic was dubbed “The Murder House”. Simon Morton says it’s no wonder when you see some of the ghastly tools used in the dental nurse trade. TALES FROM TE PAPA is a fascinating new series of mini-documentaries for TVNZ 7 that showcase many of the exciting, wonderful and significant pieces that are held in our national museum. Tales from Te Papa is commissioned by TVNZ 7, in partnership with Te Papa.
