Beyond The Beehive: Wairoa

The small town of Wairoa has been on struggle street for decades but a recent influx of new energy and idea suggests things could be about to take off. Beyond The Beehive asks locals what they'd do if they had a million bucks to spend in the local community. 

Beyond The Beehive: East Coast

Beyond The Beehive heads to the East Coast and gets the lowdown from Labour candidate Kiritapu Allan in Whakatane before winding our way to Gisborne to ask the youth what issues matter to them.

Beyond The Beehive: Tauranga

Tauranga is a certified boom town, but with that rapid growth comes greater pressures.

Beyond The Beehive asks some locals how they feel about their town's growing pains.

Beyond The Beehive tackles the beast that is Auckland checking out the Saturday markets in Parnell and Otara; pounding the streets of Pakuranga with National's youngest 2017 candidate, Simeon Brown; eating chicken at a National Party rally in Manurewa and soaking up the Jacindamania in a packed Auckland town hall.
