    • Synopsis
    • Two much-loved icons of Kiwiana (New Zealand culture) - Lynda and Jools Topp, aka The Topp Twins - are the subject of a new feature documentary directed by ex BBC filmmaker Leanne Pooley.
      The Topp Twins have attained a unique status within Kiwi culture, and their fans range from hard core political activists to little old ladies. Their ability to relate to all kinds of people, and their gift for humour, has helped them successfully cross over from the fringes to the mainstream.
