The production team behind magazine style show Pacific Beat Street described their programme as having its "brown finger on the pulse of New Zealand's youth culture". In this first episode, presenters Tuki Laumea, Nada Tielu, Koryn Dunstan and Sam Cowley-Lupo explore animation, fashion and music, and drop in on Warriors winger Francis Meli. Laumea visits Firehorse Films to watch hit comedy series bro'Town progress from page to screen. Dunstan talks to World designers Denise L'Estrange-Corbet and Francis Hooper about the realities of working in fashion, and Cowley-Lupo takes a spin with hip hop artist Dei Hamo.
