Off the Rails coming to DVD

Marcus Lush's eccentric recent Off the Rails TVNZ series on a rail trip throughout NZ was a welcome respite from the reality show crap that drenches free to air TV. Instead of manufactured coked-up celebrities, real people in ordinary towns were shown living interesting lives. It also shocked with the proof of how rail was so important to NZ's history especially in linking towns in the country's difficult terrain but has been so sadly neglected by successive governments and now lies completely run down.
The good news is that this series is out on DVD on August 25 ($39-95). Buy it and let's hope it encourages another rail-inspired series.
