Now, 25 years later he's helping Kiwis reunite with their birth parents, like he did.

Mr Gilbert is filming every step of the journey for a new TVNZ reality series called Reunited.

He spoke to Seven Sharp about the details of the show.

"We are starting a show called Reunited which helps other adopted people from all over the world and in New Zealand reach out to their birth families.

"I'm really looking forward to it, a bit nervous and a bit excited, but up for the challenge.

"I'm ready to help as many people as I can."
