Margaret was born in 1933 and has lived an extremely full life - she is still involved today in more organisations than nearly everyone who I know and she does it all with the desire to give back.  In this interview we hear about her childhood, her memories of World War II, early education, studying at University of Canterbury in the early 1950s, becoming a teacher, what made her get into politics, serving as an MP from 1984 to 1996 and her involvement with various organisations since then including Unesco, as Lincoln University Chancellor and what "retirement" means.
