Highly entertaining and watchable. I find the insights into the technical way in which timber is taken from the hills to the mill very interesting, but it is some of the characters they follow through the series that makes it truly watchable. They follow 4 crews, and the introduction to each crew each time they change location gets a little wearing.
Without a doubt it is a tough and dangerous job, but you get insights into how the job should be done properly. Most of the time the crews seem to be up against equipment reliability, rough terrain, the weather and time. Little seems to be given to safety.
Even my wife enjoys watching it.
Looking forward to series 2.

I had watched a couple of random episodes on tv and was keen to see the whole series. I was not disappointed. I have series II as well and highly recommend them to others.
