I bought this, hoping for an informative dvd about New Zealand and it was sadly lacking. I should have known when I read the back of the box and it said that Wellington was in the South Island what I was in for. Not only was the filming and photography awful, ie: no panoramic shots of New Zealand's countryside and amazing scenery, but the whole thing (which was thankfully short) was a documentary of this guy's personal holiday. He is not a pretty sight close up nor a great commentator. I was hoping to see a bit of New Zealand but all I got was him and his irritating cockney accent all the way through. The visit to the Maori village was very disappointing - the Maori people were not in traditional dress but in tshirts and didn't look very enthusiastic. I have seen wonderful footage of this fascinating custom on other dvds but this was a poor contrast plus we had an irritating rendition of "Yesterday" from the commentator - come on, if you're making a video, make an effort! Awful, hated this dvd. I watched it once and binned it. Save your money.
