The South Island high country - it's beautiful and harsh and strikes at the heart of many New Zealanders.

And who is losing out? Chris Laidlaw chairs a panel that includes: Land Information Minister David Parker; Doctor Ann Brower from Lincoln University; Don Aubrey, the charman of Federated Farmers' high country committee; and Forest and Bird advocacy manager Kevin Hackwell.
