For something completely different…
 
Check out our new series on Prime, This Could Go Anywhere featuring acclaimed cricketers Phil Tufnell and Brendon McCullum. Wednesdays from 30 September, 9.30pm.

In late 2019, English cricket legend and celebrity Phil Tufnell decided it was time to return to New Zealand and experience all that he missed of this beautiful country while touring in the 1990s. But he needed a tour guide, and all his mates insisted there was only one man for that job – and New Zealand cricket legend Brendon McCullum was up for it. 
 
Over three weeks, these two lads embarked on the road trip of a lifetime, playing the best golf courses in New Zealand and enjoying all that the regions have to offer. In this six-part series, they taste our famous cuisine, meet friendly locals, try out some extreme activities, and embrace the majestic countryside. The series couldn’t be more apt considering it’s tricky going anywhere else. Starts Wed, 30 Sep.
