British comedian Griff Rhys Jones continues on an epic journey from the tip to the toe of New Zealand but has set himself a challenge to avoid Highway One and journey the Kiwi roads less travelled.

On the second leg of Griff decides the best way to avoid highway one is to start by flying over it and heading straight to the Coromandel Peninsula. On the way, he spies Auckland’s many extinct volcanos, and his pilot issues him the challenge not to fall into a volcano. Wise words indeed.

From the Coromandel, Griff heads out to the newest piece of land on the planet – the ever-expanding White Island volcano. Here he learns of how New Zealand was formed and how the island nation is always growing. After conducting some scientific monitoring of the volcano, and avoiding falling in, Griff heads to the home of New Zealand’s hot springs culture, Rotorua.

Women are making their voices heard and making headline news. #MeToo, Reclaim the Night and Equal Pay cases have raised urgent questions about what it is to be a woman at home, at work, and in love.

In Womanhood, six famous women spanning different age ranges, backgrounds and experiences come together in Leeds to tackle some of the most hotly contested issues. Kirsty Wark (broadcaster) is joined by Shirley Ballas (Strictly Come Dancing judge), Chidera Eggerue (blogger and influencer), Jacqueline Gold (businesswoman), Sinitta Malone (80s popstar), and Suzi Ruffell (stand-up comedian). Together they want to explore the role of women and their place in society.

They share their own personal experiences and they meet people who challenge their views on consent, coercive control, cosmetic surgery, women’s safety on the streets, the trans discussion, sex work and childcare. More than 50 years ago the Equal Pay Act and the Women’s Liberation movement promised change. But is life better or worse for women today?
