Coast New Zealand

Once again, acclaimed Scottish historian, archaeologist, author and broadcaster Neil Oliver returns to our screens to explore the panoramic beauty and history of our coastlines.

Joining Neil on this epic exploration are local experts who share his passion for the coastline as they investigate the people, history, wildlife, geography, geology, archaeology and events that make the seascapes and the communities scattered around the shoreline so compelling.

This team includes leading Australasian Maritime Archaeologist Matt Carter, Marine Biologist Jacky Geurts, Author Riria Hotere (Te Aupouri, Ngati Maniapoto) and renowned Geologist and Palaeontologist Dr Hamish Campbell.

Each hour-long episode examines a specific stretch of coastline, investigating interesting, and often little-known stories along the way.

This time, The North Island's Coromandel, Hawkes Bay and Taranaki regions will be explored, and stories of the South Island's West Coast, Banks Peninsula, and Christchurch surrounds will be featured. Then Neil heads down to our third Island, the almost untouched Stewart Island.
