Survive Aotearoa

13x52' (ENG, MAO)
There will encounter conflict, rivalry and many testing situations, but these boys will have to utilise their individual cache of skills to work and survive together.

The two hosts take on some of the harshest terrain in Aotearoa, New Zealand to demonstrate how the right skills, creative thinking and Māori knowledge can keep you alive. Its natural selection at its best - the judge, jury and challenger is the land itself. At the forefront of every scenario is the challenge to: SURVIVE AOTEAROA! There will be conflict, rivalry and many testing situations. These boys will have to utilise their individual cache of skills and work together to survive.

Chris' survival skills and instincts were honed from an early age in a whānau environment up the Whanganui River. He was Ati Hau before he was ever a soldier. Barrie's a military man from the East Coast and, unlike his younger former student, Chris, considers the military the best place to learn survival skills.

To demonstrate, in their own way, how the right skills, some creative thinking and mātauranga Māori can keep you alive, they will take on some of the most unforgiving terrain in Aotearoa.

In each episode the survivalists will spend 24hrs in a scenario that could happen to anyone: marooned boaters, lost hikers, stranded mountain climbers, or injured skiers. Equipped with minimal gear that would have been carried in the real-life situations, Barrie and Chris must draw on knowledge from Te Ao Māori, their specialist military training and modern survival techniques and devise extraordinary ways to use what they can find in their surroundings to find kai and water, build a shelter to get warm and most importantly demonstrate how to navigate a path to safety. At the forefront of every scenario is the challenge: SURVIVE AOTEAROA!
