A postage stamp of the giant kauri Tane Mahuta was an eight-year old David Bellamy's first introduction to New Zealand. In this episode of Moa’s Ark Bellamy attempts to hug the nearly 14m girth of Tane Mahuta and explores New Zealand's ancient forests and the fight to save them from destruction (including the famous campaigns to save Whirinaki and Puerora Forests when protestors chained themselves to enormous totara to prevent their milling). Also features the extraterresstrial underwater forest deep under Milford Sound.
