Kiwi Heroes brings together the tales of 50 of New Zealand's bravest people. Some of the people featured are household names - some are barely known outside their own households. Some have become heroes in a moment, some over a lifetime. Some are professionals who have gone beyond the call of duty; others are ordinary people who have been plunged into terrifying circumstances and responded with astonishing bravery. Many have forfeited their lives or their livelihoods for the sake of others. All have great stories to tell.
