Te land ter zee en in de lucht (On land at sea and in the air) is the longest running Dutch amusement television show. It was first aired in 1971. In 2006 the 35th season of the TROS program was recorded and broadcast. It is still a popular show and travels through the country during the summer.
Types of 'Te land ter zee en in de lucht'
Contestants must race along a track in self-made vehicles. Most parts of the game take place above water, and getting to the end of the track without becoming wet is nearly impossible. But to win, you'll have to be the fastest who reaches the end of the track, without becoming wet. Of course you're allowed to get wet after you finished. Since 2010, the Belgian broadcaster vtm also participates, together with the TROS
There are several different kinds of show:
- Achteruitrijden (reverse racing)

How it works
- The fastest contestant wins, but there are also prizes for the most original vehicle and unluckiest contestant.
- The game travels to different cities in the Netherlands and Belgium.
- The race is commented on but usually this is not done live so it is possible for the presenter and commentator to be one and the same person. Often the race is commented on by well known Dutch comedians.
- The show has changed over the years and included weird elements like car racing with mobile homes attached to the cars, backward car racing and races where contestants would fly their selfmade planes.
- Although the show is 36 years old it is still very popular and it always attracts big crowds.
