Tim Wilson hosts a finale five-part series for TVNZ 7 with a big aspiration – to find big ideas that could transform New Zealand as we know it and you are invited to participate by being part of the audience when the series is filmed. Just visit the website above to book your seat!

Each show takes a big idea from across a range of fields of study and brings in a panel of experts to open it up, examine it, critique it and work out whether it’s a flight of fancy, an unattainable goal, a ‘nice to have’, or something solid New Zealand should start working towards now!

Show recording information:

Sunday 17 June:
100% Solar by 2020: As the pressure on existing energy sources grows, should we look to an abundant resource virtually untapped, right on our rooftops?

Monday 18 June:
Predator-Free New Zealand: An idea proposed by Sir Paul Callaghan. What if we made a concerted effort to eliminate every opossum, rat and mustelid not just from outlying islands, but from the entire country?

Monday 18 June:
Teach the World to Farm: With looming world food shortages, do New Zealand’s technologies and expertise put it in a unique position to teach the world to feed itself?

Tuesday 19 June:
Population 15 Million: Should New Zealand stop being a ‘town in a country’ and increase the population – i.e. 15 million people in the next 50 years?

Tuesday 19 June:
Selling New Zealand: Do we want to sell ourselves as more than a pretty place where Lord Of The Rings was filmed? What should our unique selling proposition be to take us into the future? And what does ‘brand New Zealand’ really mean?
