Country Calender

When the TV crew rang Dick to ask if they could come on the cattle muster and film it for Country Calender, they asked if they needed to pay for accommodation and food. Dick answered, "No. You bring the beer and we'll bring the tucker!"

And that's what they did!

It was a great muster, enlivened by heaps of raucous hilarity in the huts at night.

It's a real shame they had to edit 8 1/2 hours of video down to 22 minutes for the program.

On the next episode, screening June 20 at 7pm on TV ONE:

Mark was desperate to take his pony on the Canterbury high country station's annual cattle muster - and when he got his wish, a Country Calendar crew went with him.

According to his dad, station manager Richard Smith, the youngster had been pleading for over a year to join him and the other stockmen on the four-day muster.
