About the show

One iconic New Zealander will be surprised with the words 'This Is Your Life', as Paul Holmes and guests celebrate the life and work of a Kiwi who has made a significant contribution to New Zealand.

From athletes and activists, to authors, academics and adventurers, over the years the roll call of This Is Your Life honourees has grown to include some of our most famous and influential names:
Mark Todd, John Walker, Selwyn Toogood, Charles Upham, Rowena Jackson, William Pickering, George Nepia, Sonja Davies, Nola Luxford, Ann Crawford, Sir Edmund Hillary, Davina Whitehouse, Dick Taylor, Brian Mason, Dame Whina Cooper, Alan Grant, Peter McIntyre, Eve Rimmer, Colin Meads, Barbara Ewing, Fred Ladd, Sir Geoffrey Cox, Dame Cath Tizard, Lois Muir, Sir Howard Morrison, Johnny Checketts, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Grant Fox, Sir Peter Blake, Michael Jones, Graham Lowe, Dame Malvina Major, Lance Cairns, Rob Guest, Peter Snell, Jonah Lomu, A J Hackett, and Scott Dixon.

They've all been honoured with what rugby legend Colin Meads once described as being, "as close as you can get to a knighthood without actually getting one."
