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
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.
From breaking in the veggie patch to selling off the home made pickle and
home grown spuds... life Off The Radar is filled with ups and downs of
living in small town New Zealand, relying on the neighbours for a hand and
battling the elements.
