This year marks the 50th season that Country Calendar has been bringing Kiwis memorable stories from the heartland. The show went to air on Sunday the 6th March 1966 and it's come a long way since the first episode. Front man Fred Barnes’s formal suit and broadcasting studio are a thing of the past. The show now shoots on location, keeping it real by putting farmers in their environment at the heart of the show. Hyundai New Zealand takes immense pride in supporting a 100% Kiwi owned and operated programme that values and showcases who we are as a nation.
The 2015 season is now on air and to celebrate New Zealand's longest running television series, we've captured more about your show favourites in a series called Over the Fence. To watch Over the Fence, click here.
