The Great Australian Bake Off

The Great Australian Bake Off

It’s been coming all year… and the most recent promos have been infecting your synapses with a Paul Mac-orchestrated version of the song you most likely remember from the end credit of There’s Something About Mary. Not familiar with it? Check out the current promo for The Great Australian Bake Off… 10 amateur cooks of [...]

The Time of Our Lives

The Time Of Our Lives - Stephen Curry & Michelle Vergara Moore

“Family”. Whatever emotion it is that you’re feeling right now when even thinking of the word is exactly why writing authentic, engaging drama about a group of people connected by birth is so damn hard. It’s a multi-facted understanding of relationships, none of which are ever easy and rarely translate well from the page to [...]

TV Guide for week ending 28/04/12

Keifer Sutherland - Touch

This week looks to continue what started last week with 3 more blind audition episodes that will mean The Voice [...]

Beaconsfield

Beaconsfield

On the evening of 25 April 2006, a rock fall in the Beaconsfield Gold Mine in northern Tasmania trapped two miners and killed a third. 14 days later the miners were freed and walked out of the lift to their waiting families and the world’s attention. It made Todd Russell and Brant Webb household names, [...]

It’s the stories behind the #PicturesOfYou that matter…

Pictures Of You

“If you really want to get to know someone, there’s nothing like looking through their family photo albums.” It’s the simplest of premises, and while the digitisation of photographs may alter the way we do it, viewing the family photos of people and hearing their stories offers us great insight and understanding as to who [...]

Overpromised, Underdelivered… (#TopGearAU)

Top Gear Australia

When Channel 9 delivered their first (and the franchise’s third) series of Top Gear Australia to our screens last year, there was a lot of consternation. The hosts alone polarised people, and their interaction with each other would have made the Trojan Horse cry “wooden!”. Hosts Shane Jacobsen, Ewen Page & Steve Pizzati are affable [...]

Top Gear Australia (season four) is back!

Top Gear Australia hosts Steve, Shane & Ewen

It’s back for a fourth season (second season on Channel 9), and Top Gear Austrlia is finally allowing the hosts to show some of the camaradarie that has developed over the last 12 months of sproadic filming and challenges. It’s a reasonable observation that the first (very short) season of TGA didn’t exactly capture people’s [...]
