It's Country Calendar's fortieth anniversary, making it New Zealand's longest running television series by a country mile. What better way to celebrate this event than to release a double DVD of selected stories from this much loved TVNZ programme.

Included is an hour-long special feature which traces the history of Country Calendar's earliest days through to the present and yes, excerpts from those famous spoofs are there – the radio-controlled dog and the fence-playing farmer!

You can also enjoy stories from the latest series: the Port Waikato seventy year old who breeds rodeo bulls; the fifteen year old twins who manage a North Island hill country station; the Northland couple who have transformed a gorse-covered farmlet into an organic paradise; the Aucklander who bought a South Island high country station are all featured.

This is the perfect gift for all New Zealanders or to send overseas to friends and relations, or just to keep as a record of what is still today the very essence of New Zealand's economic wealth. The fascinating people and gorgeous scenery come as a bonus!
