Presented by the multi-skilled Annie Whittle (Go Girls, A Week of It) and the ebullient Dale Harvey (an American born radio host, columnist and environmental consultant) The Living Earth was a magazine style show aimed at those who love getting their hands dirty in the garden. The series featured famous private and public New Zealand gardens, interviews with keen gardeners from varied walks of life, and weekly competitions. The Living Earth offered practical advice for the beginner and the enthusiast, and explored wider environmental topics.
