"From lighthouses to lava flows, kayaks to kiwis, beaches to butterflies, Marcus Lush covers a lot of ground - and water - in his latest adventure about New Zealand's special places and people. After exploring the wild south in his last TV series, Lush has gone to the other extreme of the country for his next show, North. Opening with spectacular aerial views of Lush arriving in Manukau Harbour by container ship, the show goes up the east side and down the west before concluding 10 weeks later with an idiosyncratic A to Z of Auckland in classic Lush style. Along the way, Lush gets spooked and does a bit of spooking of his own, meets an astronomer with an observatory in her back garden, enjoys close encounters with dolphins, gannets and butterflies and discovers the ultimate man cave in suburban Mount Albert. And, yes, the occasional train chugs into view too."--Container.
