Three hours - 12 programmes - of New Zealand's long-running Country Calendar series.

For over 45 years TVNZ's Country Calendar has brought the best of New Zealand's farming and countryside to the screen. Over two thougand programmes.

In 2010, veteran presenter Frank Torley was asked to select his twelve favourites. This is the result - three hours ranging all over the country from 1974 to the present.

We know New Zealand is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and this selection contains some wonderful filming.

There are plenty of cattle, sheep, dogs and horses on view, as well as items on deer, land management, wine growing and bee keeping, but it it the people you will remember. Outdoors men and women full of energy and enterprise from the couple producing wine with no experience, to the fifteen year olds running 3,500 up-country acres.
