The Wildeness Explored
Australia's Red Heat

Part of the documentary series (this is 1 episode) telling the stories of early European explorers who reached the wildernesses of Canada, Australia and the Congo. This is only the Oz programme.

Australia's stark and beautiful red centre is now seen as part of the country's national identity, with Uluru, or Ayres Rock, a national symbol.

But this vast desert centre was originally seen as a place of death and silence by the first white explorers.

It has taken 200 years for a new perception to emerge, one that recognises it as a place of life and creation - the way it has always been seen by the continent's original inhabitants, the Aborigines.

Peter Cook
Dudley Moore

The Lost Tapes

Peter Cook and Dudley Moore are commonly regarded as the greatest comic double act that Britain has ever produced.

However, it is less commonly known that in 1971, at the height of their careers, they spent eleven months in Australia touring their latest stage show, Behind the Fridge and writing and starring in two TV specials (of the same name) never seen in Britain at the time. Pete and Dud: The Lost Tapes is a one-hour compilation of best from these two Behind the Fridge specials.

Both shows were recorded in Melbourne, in early November 1971 and broadcast later that month on Australia’s number one network, Channel Nine.

But the shows were never broadcast in the UK and spent the next 34 years in Channel Nine’s Melbourne archive.

Pete and Dud: The Lost Tapes captures Cook and Moore at their very best, providing us with another opportunity to witness their unique and dynamic chemistry at time when their partnership was at its strongest.

Billy Connolly

World Tour of Australia

The things we love about comedians are their astute observations and mastery of the language. The distractive thing about them is their whiny voices and manic mannerisms.

Billy Connolly is possibly the only stand up who does not behave like a big nerd. He delivers his routine like one of the boys and gets away with the taboo.

Connolly’s stand up is brilliant here, and he visits various places in each location where he does his evening gig. Australia is a great place and Connolly the tour guide is likeable – but Connolly the stand up is genius.

Jenny Agutter
Luc Roeg
David Gulpil


Superb cinematography, the Australian outback comes alive in this film of self discovery and regret. Agutter plays the English girl brilliantly, incapable of comprehending anybody or anything that doesn't conform to her middle-class values and upbringing.

Roeg is also excellent as her brother, adapting to each and every change in circumstance as only children can. I have watched this movie many times, and always get something new from it.

Highly recommended to anyone, although parents might want to watch it before allowing minors see it - contains nudity.
