Coast New Zealand: The Far North
The Far North
Season 1  |  Episode 6  |  The History Channel  |  February 6, 2019

The warm subtropical top of the North Island is famed for its beauty and history. Nowhere in New Zealand is land entangled more vividly with the sea than around the beautiful but sometimes wild Far North peninsula. In this episode Neil discovers a remarkable feature of a six-bedroom waterfront mansion previously owned by Terry Clark of the 'Mr Asia' drug syndicate fame. Riria Hotere takes aim at the musket wars to discover the legend of New Zealand's first arms race. Marine Archaeologist Matt Carter investigates a ship that was built for war but died for life 30m underwater. And Neil drops anchor at a picturesque inlet with a gruesome history that could have seen New Zealand being the new South of France.
