Hunger for the Wild - Series One, Episode Three (Mokihinui River whitebait)

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2006

Parental Guidance
It's a chance for us to give back to the people who helped us; to sit around a table of beautiful food; to talk about the hunt; and swap stories. I love it, it's a big part of why we're in the business.
– Steve Logan, on the meal that ends each episode
The most talked about three months on the West Coast calendar.
– The narrator, on whitebaiting
We’ve got names for the tuis. That’s Davey the Tui, and we’ve got a bellbird that’s [named] Billy the Bellbird.
– A coaster, on how well they know their stands
And what a great location to do some cooking ... all we need now is the main ingredient.
– Al Brown on what the series is all about
