About The Show

The Demolition Teams follows three demolition crews on 10 different sites across Christchurch, Wellington, and Auckland. Many are quake-affected buildings that have to come down in a hurry. The cameras, including drones and go-pros, take viewers behind the security fences and into the hidden world of the demolition teams, including never-seen-before video from inside Christchurch’s red zone, and the inside story of the country’s two biggest controlled implosions – Christchurch’s Newstalk ZB building and Central Police Station. The one-off documentary also focuses on the team from Ward Demolition, with the larger-than-life boss Peter and his character of a son Dalton.
