High Country Rescue

8:00pm Monday, November 26 on TV One

TV ONE’s brand new series, High Country Rescue follows the New Zealand police and Search and Rescue volunteers as they brave the elements and risk their lives in some of the most remote and treacherous parts of the South Island.

The spectacular locales of Fiordland and Mt Aspiring National Parks are set against a breath-taking but hazardous backdrop of snowy mountains and dense bush. They are a magnet for outdoor adventurers, but the terrain can be deadly.

When disaster strikes, the local police and Search and Rescue volunteers are the only lifeline for experienced mountaineers who become trapped in dangerous weather, stricken mountain bikers and missing hunters.

High Country Rescue joins the search as rescue heroes and local police take on life-or-death missions.
