One of our main aims is education. So we feature programmes that give us an insight not just into ourselves as New Zealanders but as citizens of the world. That's why you will find international programmes inside as well as programmes on local NZ issues and topics.
For example,we have a dilemma. We need to trade to survive and succeed as a nation in our world economy, but in getting our goods to overseas markets we add significantly to global warming. Does the Black Pearl project offer a solution. A return to sailing ships using new technology? Take a look at the clip on the right. Lots of other good ideas inside.
