A 30-minute television version of the snowboarding web series Diaries Down Under made its small screen debut on Australian action sports channel FUEL TV last Saturday (21 September), showcasing Queenstown to a potential audience of six million viewers.

Diaries_Down_UnderThe Queenstown-based Diaries Down Under team, already well known for its entertaining short, sharp webisodes, has taken it to the next level with Diaries Down Under – the TV Show which features the ‘best of the best’ and previously unseen footage captured over the past three ski seasons.

The show follows the cream of New Zealand, Australian and international riders enjoying some of the South Island’s best terrain, stunning landscapes, world-class events, and adrenaline-fuelled adventures.  Insights and entertaining narrative are provided by Kiwi riders and Diaries Down Under presenters Nick Hyne, Nick Brown and Stef Zeestraten.

Destination Queenstown sponsors the cutting edge web series and CEO Graham Budd believes Diaries_Down_Under1the TV show is a great way to promote the Queenstown region as a top winter destination.

“Diaries Down Under resonates perfectly with our younger audience and what they produce is an innovative, fun and compelling way of showcasing what’s hot on-and-off the slopes.”

Diaries presenter Nick Hyne says his team is “over the moon” about finally producing a TV show.

“We’re worked hard over the past few years to build our web series so we’re rapt to have been recognised as ‘TV-worthy’.  It feels good to have put something we are truly proud of together.”

The show will be replayed on FUEL TV on 28 September at 8am, 29 September at 8pm, and 30 September at 3pm.
