Team of 5 Million

1 x 60 minutes | TVNZ

“Team of Five Million” is a journey back to the extraordinary year of 2020 as New Zealand grappled with a deadly virus. The story is told through the eyes of everyday kiwis whose lives would never be the same again.


It starts with those early weeks of fear, uncertainty and panic buying. It ends with a country that can enjoy relative freedom. But along the way, it’s an honest account of the very real heartache and loss that came with keeping the virus at bay.
