Te land, Ter zee... (On land, At sea and In the air)
The well-known 'Te Land, Ter Zee en In de Lucht' is the longest-running entertainment program on Dutch television.
Broadcasted by the TROS from 1971 in this program people with homemade cars, boats, planes and other vehicles attempt to finish a trail, which is usually built somewhere in a Dutch city.
There are several versions of this game, but the common factor of these games is that it is stopped by a brightly colored bell marking the finish time at the end of the trail.
