Country Calendar is the longest running programme on New Zealand Television.
You will be hard pressed to find another series that is the perfect amalgamation of stunningly beautiful high definition pictures and human stories of courage - of following a dream to fruition and finding success from living a life of plenty from the land.
SPANNING 45 YEARS of existence, Country Calendars stories have become increasingly diverse. Amongst the bucolic tales of farming, fishing and forestry, there are high country musters, floods, organic brewing, falconry, tobacco farming, and newer ventures such like truffles and alpacas. Its popularity remains undimmed one of New Zealands top-rating shows, its watched as much in the cities as it is in the provinces where the stories come from.
With its typical patient observational style (that allows stories of people and the land to gently unfold), its an unlikely broadcasting star, but the shows producer, Frank Torley believes nostalgia for earning an honest living from the land is what makes city people yearn for the lifestyles the show portrays.
Country Calendar 26 new episodes being added every year. HD episodes available from 2011. Themed packages available on request.
