No 8 Wired - Episode

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2000

Hosted by Don Carson and Rachel Donald, this half-hour show covered rural news and issues, including business and horticulture. "We provide a forum for rural issues, where people on the land can have their say on current events" said Donald during this first weekly episode, which focused on the future of farming. The Thomsen family of Hawke’s Bay shared the challenges of expanding their farm to include their sons, while rural accountant Rick Cranswick offered tips on succession planning. Farmers also reacted to the results of the McKinsey referendum, which ultimately lead to the end of the NZ Wool Board.

The future of farming lies with our young ones. If we don’t get behind them, there is no future.
