For the past 48 years, Country Calendar has been bringing Kiwis memorable stories from the heartland. The show has come a long way since the first episode aired on 6 March 1966. 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 2014 season brings many more stories of passionate people living on the land - tune in to TV One on Saturdays at 7pm to watch. And don't forget to enter our weekly Hyundai Country competitions to be in to win a taste of real New Zealand.
