Coast New Zealand,
History Channel (Foxtel), Monday, 7.29pm

Scottish historian Neil Oliver has probably worked his way into the best job in the world.
What could be better than travelling the world and visiting just about every beach he can?
And the nice thing is – there are plenty of beaches to visit, so he could be in for a long career following the coastline.
Coast started as a British series charting the history, stories and natural beauty of the British Isle with a team of historians, scientists and quirky presenters.
The British documentary ran for 10 series from 2005 to 2015 before Oliver (the man who made history sexy) took the show on the road.
Since 2015 he has been alternating between the New Zealand and Australian coastlines (nice job if you can get it!) And right now it’s New Zealand’s turn, returning for a second series.
This time around the six-part series sees Neil and his local New Zealand team venture to Stewart Island, take in the West Coast of the South Island, plus Christchurch and Banks Peninsula. On the North Island Taranaki, Hawkes Bay and Coromandel feature in the one-hour episodes.
Coast is part travelogue, part history program, part natural history and part Neil Oliver dangling off cliffs and trying other new things and having too much fun at “work”.
