The Cul De Sac (meaning 'dead end') is a YA drama from New Zealand about a group of teens trying to survive in a world where all the adults have suddenly vanished along with the Internet and electricity and evil forces want them dead.
A wonderful series based on a group of friends who attend a weekly trivia competition. Their lives, their loves, their dramas. The writers who wrote this series are the same writers who created Outrageous Fortune.
The journey of four hapless male wannabes; a Model, a Stuntman, a Dwarf Entertainer and a Stand-up Comedian, all trying (and failing) to find success in Auckland's ridiculously small entertainment industry.
A New Zealand regiment is ordered to take the hill Chunuk Bair, without the promised British support . An operation without sense , as they must return to the bottom. It is when a British ship opened fire on the hill.

Dr Li Mei Chen (2003 - 2006) arrived to New Zealand on a study program from China.

Being a New Zealand resident, I get a first-hand look at this 8 year old soap opera, which stars some of New Zealand's finest acting talent.
Starting in May, 1992, SST got off to a rocky beginning in it's home country. The ratings weren't that great, yet the producers were still optomistic. However, only a year after, the ratings picked up, and now it's come to be a way of life in NZ. Yep - nearly every house will have the TV on channel 2 at 7pm, to watch their fave soap.
Over the past 8 years keen followers have seen Nick, Kirsty, Rachel and the gang battle diseases, broken hearts and evil maniacs as they try to live life as the script-writers see fit. Many an actor have walked into the Clinic Reception, and let's hope Shortland Street Medical Centre will keep it's doors open for a long time to come!
