Four years on from the first earthquakes we ask what could be- for our people, for our city. Building on the success of the first series, the second series of Christchurch: From the Streets, looks to the future. In a rebuild expected to cost 40-50 billion, change is what Christchurch people are collectively learning to embrace.
From the Streets sees Christchurch as the petri dish for the whole land. Innovations occurring in the city will affect all of New Zealand. At the same time the show gives Christchurch locals a voice in their own recovery and an understanding of the astonishing changes forming all around them.
From the back of an ageing Mercedes, presenters Rachel Morton and Lindon Puffin criss-cross the streets of Christchurch. They pick up a tour guide and along the way meet the dreamers, innovators and engineers who are creating the new city.
