Hyundai Country Calendar Presents: The Innovators
Hyundai New Zealand is proud to be a long-standing partner of Country Calendar. Over the years, Hyundai Country Calendar has aired many stories of farming, entrepreneurship and the never-say-die Kiwi attitude in rural New Zealand. In conjunction with TVNZ, we have developed The Innovators, a short series which takes a glimpse into the life of pioneering Kiwis who find ways to forge their own path, off the beaten track - using Kiwi ingenuity and a can-do attitude. These clips are excerpts from Hyundai Country Calendar - one of the longest running and most beloved New Zealand TV classics.
