Series premiere

Sunday February 8 at 8.30 PM

Series premiere! A ten-part series that is part-personal odyssey, part-quest for understanding, and given the host’s background, a great opportunity for a few laughs. Comedian Mike King hits the road to find descendants of signatories and people who have ‘neat yarns’ about the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi. He also retraces the journey of the nine separate documents that were signed throughout New Zealand in 1840, and now make up the treaty. In the course of his travels, Mike tells the story of people who, like his great-great-great grandfather, signed the Treaty, as well as others who did not.
