New Zealand transports you to an exotic, magnificent and isolated island chain where the mysterious and unexpected story of its true nature is revealed. Narrated by Sam Neill.
There has already been a deep look recently at how our education system is failing many kids in the New Zealand Herald's "The Primary Issue" series. Crusading documentary maker and former teacher Bryan Bruce has his own politically and sociology-minded take in an one-off hour-long study which follows his previous Mind the Gap and Inside Child Poverty. In World Class? Inside New Zealand Education Bruce ponders whether the New Zealand state education system, and old methods of learning are causing Kiwi kids to slip in many international rankings. "We can't teach our kids to deal with tomorrow by using yesterday's methods," he says.
New Zealand is one of the most remote countries in the world. Owing to the great distance from continents and, as a result of intense volcanic activity, unique flora and fauna as well as extraordinary landscapes have developed in this island country.
