Marcus Lush

Presenter

Popular and idiosyncratic radio and TV host Marcus Lush chronicled his love affair with the railways on high-rating series Off the Rails, which won him an award for best presenter at the 2006 NZ Screen Awards. Lush followed it with Ice, which saw him spending time in Antarctica, before making further Kiwi excursions South and North.

I stopped shaving when I turned 40. My father’s always had a good beard. I don’t think it’s a homage to him. He’s still alive and he’s still got a good beard, but not as good as mine. Maybe it’s an alpha male thing. Marcus Lush
