Jeremy Wells brings Kenneth Cumberland-esque authority to this 'alternative' version of New Zealand history, made by the same team that produced Eating Media Lunch. TUHONZ plumbs the TV archives to poke fun at the pretence of the past, and present. Some excruciating hilarity is mined from artifacts of visitation to southern shores, from Bill Clinton to the Beatles. Muhammad Ali's fast food tastes down under are examined; the Dalai Lama finds bad karma in Christchurch; Charles and Diana visit in 1981; and of course, much mirth is had with all things ovine.

You can't buy it on DVD as it has not been released on DVD & never will according to TVNZ & Great Southern TV. I wish they would release it.



Where can we buy this on DVD?
