Editorial Reviews

New Zealand is a beautiful land of contrasts. The North Island is flat, green and densely populated, while the South Island is rugged, mountainous and snowy. The Maori originally called it Etirea, the land of the long white cloud. Globe Trekker traveler Ian Wright starts his journey in Auckland, where the city skyscrapers are home to the most extreme sports in the world. He then heads up the coast to Matauri Bay and the Bay of the Islands. On the South Island he visits Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown, before climbing the amazing Fox Glacier. Along the way... Wreck dive the Rainbow Warrior. Attend a Pofari ceremony in a Maori community. Go punting in Christchurch. Sample a piece of Kiwi madness and do a bit of Zorbing.

This is an episode from the TV series (depending upon your location, called "Lonely Planet", "Globe Trekker", or "Pilot Productions").
You can see more about it at [...]
This episode covers travels on the North Island and the South Island of New Zealand.
Your travel host is Ian Wright (a truly zany bloke).
Focus is on travel-on-a-shoestring methods, and off-the-beaten-path sights, and gives you a realistic sense of "being there".
Locations visited: [North Island] Auckland, Maori meeting house in Matauri Bay, Bay of Islands, Rotorua volcanic area, crossing at Wellington; [South Island] Christchurch, Queenstown, and Fox Glacier.
Although funny as ever, this episode was not able to thorougly cover many worthy sights in a (what is for most people undexpectedly) large country.

In a nutshell: He travels 1/2 way around the world to go show us the bars and thrill rides of New Zealand and only mentions in passing the things that someone would really want to go to New Zealand to see.

If you really want to see a show about New Zealand, forget this one. If you want to see a show about bars, why not just go to a local bar?

I saw this episode on the television. Ian was obviously bored stiff traveling in NZ.

I am looking into emigrating to New Zealand and will watch pretty much anything covering it. They completely skipped Wellington (on the NORTH island, folks) which was disappointing, but there was enough to keep me interested. Definitely focused on traveler's needs, not immigrants of course!

Also check out Billy Connolly's (the stand up comic) tour of New Zealand. In between his routines, he does the sights. He is much more familiar with the place than Ian is.

There is also a documentary on walking the Milford Track, beautiful. Unfortunately I don't know the details on finding it.
