Sports fans are a demanding lot. They want live action, instant replays and super slow mo, as well as perceptive commentary and insightful analysis supported by the latest data beamed live and direct from the field as well as from the players themselves.

Fast forward 25 years and we can all be yachting experts without any of us falling overboard or the sea spray and lifejackets: all you need today is a screen!

In April 1938 Agnes Moncrieff, New Zealand YWCA foreign secretary to the YWCA of China, wrote to her mother - "You do not travel in China at the full moon if you can help. There are always air raids."

Barbara Francis met Nessie Moncrieff in Wellington in 1956 and they remained friends up until Moncrieff's death in 1988. In 2007, Francis discovered that the Alexander Turnbull Library had a collection of Moncrieff's letters and reports sent home to Aotearoa, and she set about editing them, sharing her friend's story in a new book You Do Not Travel in China at the Full Moon: Agnes Moncrieff's Letters from China 1930-45.
