Neil has become one of the UK's most compelling TV presenters, popularising history programming with stories of heroic figures and everyday lives from the past. Trained as an archaeologist and journalist, he made his television debut in the BBC’s Two Men in a Trench (2002), which featured acclaimed archaeologist of conflict Tony Pollard, visiting historic battlefields and recreating battle situations using state-of-the-art archaeological techniques.
Closer to home, local audiences have been captivated by Neil Oliver’s exploration of our natural and social history in BBC’s Coast New Zealand. The popular series is scheduled to start re-filming in early 2018.
Auckland Live is thrilled to partner with BBC Worldwide to present NEIL OLIVER: Live on Stage at Auckland Town Hall for one night only – make sure you don’t miss out.
