  • Taking Kiwi music to the world in the series Making Tracks
  • Having to avoid young thugs with guns in Brazil during the shooting of the show
  • Bringing stand-up comedy back to TV in A Night at the Classic
  • Poking fun in a gentle way at mustachioed men in Movember
  • Taking healthy fast food to the nation in The Food Truck
  • How chef Michael was the perfect quirky fit for the show
  • Finding the origins of comedy in TV series Funny Roots
  • How their different strengths and abilities have led to a great partnership
