About the show
There is much romance surrounding the concept of escaping the rat race to live a self-sustainable lifestyle and surely Aotearoa is the best place on earth to make this back-to-basics dream come true... comedian Te Radar is finding out. ;;
This series explores the delights and difficulties of trying to sustain oneself off what one man can hunt, grow and fish. ;; Te Radar is discovering there is much to keep one occupied on long cold nights in the tent; do saucers of beer really keep snails off cabbages? ;; ;; Does goat make tasty salami? And what happens when the time comes for Willie the pet pig to hit the dinner platter? ;;
Off The Radar also touches on topical green issues facing New Zealand like the viability of solar power and how simple steps like composting and starting a worm bin reduce landfill. ;;
In his quest to become more self sustainable, Te Radar is calling on the help of many fascinating folk - like Project Pete, the man with at least 100 projects half-finished in his shed and back paddock, Shawn, a local with a degree in fixing things with #8 wire, Pru and Trish the growing gurus and Wolfgang, the self-proclaimed king of scything and mud oven maker. ;;
Then there are the animal characters - Sainsbury and Campbell the calves, Willie and JT the pet porkers and a bevy of tasty birds... chickens that is.
