If you’re going to lead, you have to have certain values that are important to you, otherwise you can’t lead, you just flip-flop around the place. Jim Bolger

Nowhere is it written down what are the powers of the Prime Minister ... it’s your personality, it’s the skills that you’ve got, it’s how you use the office. Helen Clark

Based on the acclaimed RNZ podcast series, and including new material, The 9th Floor by journalists Guyon Espiner and Tim Watkin presents in-depth interviews with five former Prime Ministers of New Zealand. Geoffrey Palmer, Mike Moore, Jim Bolger, Jenny Shipley and Helen Clark reflect on their time occupying the prime ministerial offices on the 9th floor of the Beehive. Their recollections amount to a fascinating record of the decisions that shaped modern New Zealand.
