Alis­tair Mc­Gowan, the English im­pres­sion­ist, comic, ac­tor, singer and writer, has al­ways won­dered about his dark colour­ing, which of­ten leads him to be mis­taken for French or Ital­ian. Alis­tair heads to In­dia, the only place where he feels he will be able to un­cover the truth. With his un­cle, Rusty, he ex­plores his fa­ther’s child­hood home in Cal­cutta. The scene is set for a true voy­age of dis­cov­ery for our swarthy sub­ject.

This is the story of the nat­u­ral dis­as­ter that rocked New Zealand and shook emo­tions the world over.

Grant­ing view­ers a look at raw, up­front footage from the moment the earth­quake struck, the pro­gram both fright­ens and in­spires, two years af­ter our Tas­man neigh­bours lost nearly 200 souls and a way of life.
