Intrepid Journeys on One

8:30pm Thursday, March 3 on TV One

Former All Black legend Frank Bunce finds himself in the middle of civil unrest on his Intrepid Journey to Egypt this week on TV ONE.

Having enjoyed privileged travel in his sporting days, the opportunity to spend time in a foreign country and be immersed in a new culture was a dream come true, but Bunce’s travels brought him face-to-face with the poverty, fear and frustration that fuelled the recent uprising in Cairo. While the bloody protests were shocking and confronting, Bunce still says it was an honour to spend time in Egypt and to be there for such an historic time of change.

    I reckon this will be one of the best episodes yet. Frank is down to earth, fun and full of humanity….I am sure that will be evident in his trip to Egypt.

  • Pike

    Yes – glad he survived and lives to tell the tale. It sounded so horrible when he said his crew was attached and their lives in serious danger.

  • Leah

    Poor Frank. He looks so old and sad in that photo. What did they do to him on his trip…

  • Howick

    for sure he is getting older. many years now since he donned the black jersey. well into retirement i presume. remember he was one of best and oldest all blacks ever at that time.
