Te Radar enjoys our delicious Ice Cream afterwards he struggled to get the shearing gear going – it was hard sweating work to produce the bike power for shearing a sheep.  Te Radar really liked the idea of using the Buzzy Bee Ride for young children as a prop for businesses at an event whilst parents talk to business vendors about their products (here – see website Radar (born Andrew J. Lumsden) is a New Zealand comedian and television personality. Lumsden studied law at the University of Otago, but abandoned his original course of study to take up drama. He adapted his original nickname of “Radar”, adding the Maori Te (“The”) to the front for added distinction.Te Radar’s comedy often focuses on his interests in travel and history and has a style that could be associated with the iconic style that has been made famous by Rhys Darby. As a result, his work has led to him presenting radio travel documentaries for Radio New Zealand. His 2004 radio show Dispatches from the Holy Lands, chronicling his travels through the Arab-Israeli conflict resulted in the Television New Zealand documentary War Tourist – Christmas in Bethlehem. In 2006 Te Radar fronted a three-part documentary Hidden in the Numbers, which examined the changing face of New Zealand culture. This was followed by two further television series, Off the Radar and Homegrown. Off the Radar saw Te Radar’s attempt at sustainable living, spending ten months working on a small allotment. The show rated highly, and led to the publication on an accompanying book. The series was followed by a sequel, Radar’s Patch, which won the 2010 award for Best Information/Lifestyle programme. He is a bearded ginger.
