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