CNN set to showcase Kiwi culture in upcoming television show

CNN is set to take Kiwi culture to the world as part of an upcoming TV show.

In next month's episode of In 24 Hours, CNN host James Williams will head to Auckland to experience New Zealand's trademark adventure and breathtaking scenery over the course of a single day.

The day will begin with a bungy jump, and then the host will join Blues and All Black flanker Jerome Kaino on game day.

Williams will also be put through a gruelling gym workout by Kaino.

Later in the day Williams will travel to White Island, before heading to Auckland's west coast.

He will get a lesson in four-wheel off-road driving on his way to some cliffside clay shooting.

Before the sun sets Williams will then travel by helicopter to Waiheke Island, where he will sample Te Matuku Bay oysters straight from the sea with Orphans Kitchen head chef Tom Hishon.

While on the island Williams will also take a horse trek with Waiheke local Paora Joseph, and experience a Maori welcoming ceremony.

The trip will be capped off with a toast to the sunset at famous winery Cable Bay.

The show is scheduled to air in New Zealand from March 1 at 11.30pm on CNN, with repeats shown until a final screening on March 13 at 8.30am.
