Griff’s Great Kiwi Road Trip
4 x 60 minutes for ABC Australia (2019)
British comedian and travel enthusiast Griff Rhys Jones is packing his bags, pulling on his hiking boots, and heading out into the wilds to explore New Zealand. Journey with him as he drives, flies, cycles, sails and jetboats his way from the top of the North Island to the bottom of the South Island – all the while avoiding the well-trodden path of State Highway 1. With each challenge Griff investigates iconic aspects of life in New Zealand – meeting interesting people, throwing himself into activities, and revealing layers of history and culture in each region. On an adventure taking the paths less travelled, Griff asks the questions never asked and discovers sides of this country that are only rarely seen.
