Neighbours at War

8:00pm Monday, May 28 on TV2

Batten down the hatches! Neighbours at War returns this week as Mary Lambie stands in the firing line between one resident and the folks over the fence.

It’s a land war on Auckland’s North Shore as unit-dweller Kishor claims his neighbour Pat has taken over their shared backyard. Pat claims Kishor just wants to reap the rewards of his blood, sweat and landscaping.

Can former Good Morning host Mary break the deadlock?

Neighbours at War is back for a brand new season to assist even more Kiwis who are struggling with the folks next door.

Whether it’s unruly animals, dangerous trees, inconsiderate renovations or verbal insults, Neighbours at War has got it all.

This new season lets affected neighbours tell their side of the story and enlists councils, mediators, surveyors, arborists and other experts to help put an end to the dispute.

It’s more solid programming from TV2 in 2011 with some excellent content.  The only thing obviously missing was any sign of new local shows on TV2.

A battle for territory is escalating tonight, in another eye-opening episode of Neighbours At War.

Featuring the most unbelievable stories of neighbouring disputes, Neighbours At War is in Gisborne tonight for another dramatic show-down. Territorial issues have got silver-haired neighbours Pat and Hilary at each other’s throats. A fight over a stray pizza box resulted in a stoush with a broom, and now the pair finds themselves at odds over Pat’s motor-home.

Hilary has taken to laying out a line of pavers on their shared driveway as an official demarcation line, making relations more frosty than ever. Can former TVNZ Newsreader Tom Bradley negotiate a truce between this disgruntled pair, or is it too late?

The fifth series of TV2’s popular series Neighbours at War is currently in production and could help you.

Are you…
• Having a dispute over noise, boundaries or an untidy section?
• Dealing with a rude or nosey neighbour?
• Had enough of your neighbour’s unruly dog or other animals?
• Trying to reason with your neighbour and being rebuffed?
• Wondering what your rights are and where to get help?

Up and down the country feuds over the fence happen with alarming regularity. Neighbours at War is there to tell your story and assist in halting hostilities using mediators and other skilled experts.

Neighbours at War will tackle any problem no matter how big, small or long-running. Where councils and other organisations have failed, Neighbours at War will let you have your say.

If you, or anyone you know, is at war with the people next door, contact Greenstone Pictures now on:

Continuing to find and solve tales of epic disgruntlement from all over New Zealand, Neighbours At War is in West Auckland this week, with Josephine and George’s quiet cul-de-sac in disharmony and disarray following a dizzying list of misdeeds each party claims against the other.

Brown eyes, balaclavas, foul language, obscene gestures, urination (not in the toilet), misuse of vehicles and traffic cones as battering rams, excessive video surveillance and parking petulance are just some of the accusations flying between these Neighbours at War.

Labour MP Chris Carter is brought in to calm these troubled waters, but can he placate these seething neighbours?

Neighbours At War proves that from the top of the country to the bottom, average Kiwis are falling out with alarming regularity. The producers have filmed disputes of both epic and inconsequential proportions; from driveway hassles and dogs barking, to unruly trees, dodgy fences, covert filming, and crazy grandmothers. Where Police, city councils, lawyers and offensive language may have failed, Neighbours At War gingerly steps in to assist with a variety of well-intentioned mediators… and with mixed results.

“This show is a real insight into how people can behave towards each other when they’re put in close proximity, and how a simple spat with a neighbour can completely dominate someone’s life,” says series researcher Kim Trueman. “And it’s so scarily common there is probably some sort of dispute going on in your own street right now!”

Embracing the adage that ‘there are two sides to every story’, Neighbours At War goes behind-the-scenes in New Zealand’s seemingly peaceful streets, visiting disgruntled residents who are at their wits’ end and helping them tell their stories to the nation. As well as providing a compelling insight into the things that really, really tick people off, Neighbours At War is laden with useful information for viewers at home – keep a pen and paper handy!

“We get community disputes out in the open,” says director Bill Kerton. “It’s almost like a 10 week, nationwide hui – the title of the show is a little misleading because we’ve seen so much love.”

Producer Sophie Dungate adds; “Bringing about a cease-fire in an acrimonious situation where both parties have ceased to have any sense of perspective is challenging at best. However we have had some excellent mediators this series, and against the odds I think we’ve achieved some excellent resolutions.”

7.30pm every Thursday on TV2.

Tonight on local hit series, Neighbours At War, there is angst in South Canterbury over unregistered Chihuahuas, flooded sections and rare roosters.

Neighbours At War travels to Timaru tonight, where complainants Grant and Vanessa’s neighbour has six unregistered Chihuahuas. The neighbour also has a tendency towards inappropriate use of gardening implements. Grant and Vanessa believe their neighbour is deliberately flooding their section, but their complaints to the authorities have come to nothing, so far.
Meanwhile, in neighbouring St Andrews, an anonymous neighbour is complaining to the council about the noise from Robin and Noelene’s many roosters. Can the rare cockerels be saved?

Neighbours At War screens Tuesday nights on TV2 at 10.00pm.

Here’s an ad for the 2007 season of Neighbours at war. The show will screen on TV2.
