The series is Satellite Media's third installment of the highly successful and critically acclaimed Rocked The Nation documentary series. With a focus on our rich sporting history, we celebrate NZ triumphs, remarkable feats and notorious moments. Hosted by Dai Henwood, Rocked the Nation 3 is an engaging and entertaining human interest series and takes a fresh look at how we approach sport. We explore our greats; mainstream, obscure, remarkable and notorious, and spark opinions and debate on what our top moments in sport might be, as we count down to the all important number 1 moment.

Tonight the first episode in our six-part countdown includes everything from high vaulting teenagers to nude ocean adventures, awesome horses and awful horses, as well as oval balls, leather balls and round balls.

Featuring revealing interviews with Keith Quinn, Ben Hurley, Michelle Pickles, Jon Bridges, Mike McRoberts, Temuera Morrison, Ben Boyce, Rikki Swannell, Graeme Hill and a stunning line-up of the stars of NZ sports themselves.
