Coast New Zealand is an epic voyage of discovery along the margins of a country that's a newcomer on the terrestrial stage; islands that were forged in the furnace of earthly forces, mega earthquakes, marauding glaciers and furious volcanoes.
With 16,000kms of dynamic coastal stories to uncover with an expert and enthusiastic team, this series is a fascinating investigation into our past and present, telling the story of the formation and evolution of our nation: our history; our people; and our culture.
Acclaimed Scottish archaeologist and historian Neil Oliver will be joined by four New Zealanders, all experts in their field; Matt Carter, one of the leading diving maritime archaeologists in Australasia, renowned geologist and palaeontologist Dr Hamish Campbell, marine biologist and actress Jacqueline Geurts, and Riria Hotere, an actress and passionate former member of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa staff.
Neil Oliver takes a fascination journey around the coast of New Zealand, uncovering stories that make us the island nation that we are today.
The East Cape: Neil gets his first ever glimpse of a live volcano; Jacky hunts for apostles from Gisborne's Age of Aquarius; and Matt dives into a tale of tragedy, treasure and treachery in Mahia.
Top of the South: Neil uncovers an invasion that ruffled more than a few feathers in the Abel Tasman National Park and learns how to save whales, while Matt goes in search of the Mikhail Lermontov.
Auckland: Tonight Neil steps onto Tmaki Makaurau's biggest volcanic eruption; meets the Kamikaze surfers who fought to make New Zealand nuclear free; and goes paddling, Piha style.
The Deep South: Neil visits the Royal Albatross as they return home from their wanderings; Riria unveils the mystery of a precious relic; and Jacky revs up the beach at the Burt Munro challenge.
Season Final: The Far North: Neil visits a mansion once owned by Terry Clark of 'Mr Asia' drug syndicate fame; Riria takes aim at the musket wars; and Jacky gets jazzy in the world's largest seacave.
