Slapstick mockumentary about an enthusiastic Aussie wildlife expert, Russell Coight, whose haphazard and inept adventuring style ensures that he is a danger to anything and anyone he meets, not to mention himself.
A big city lawyer is prompted to undergo a 'seachange' with her children and becomes the magistrate at the small coastal town of Pearl Bay, where the family comes to love its people and the quality time with each other.
The show that lifts the lid on advertising, spin and marketing. Join host Wil Anderson, stalwarts Todd Sampson and Russel Howcroft and other advertising industry experts to unpick the ways we're all bought and sold.
It's the countdown to the Sydney 2000 Olympics, and the Head of Administration and Logistics, John Clarke, and his colleagues, Bryan Dawe, Head of Accounts, Budgeting and Finance, and Gina Riley, Marketing and Liaison Manager wish everyone to know that everything is running smoothly. Certainly, the running track is not actually 100 meters, allowing Bryan to break the world record - but we can always put a bend in it, that's no problem. And 30% of the athletes and their sponsors may refuse to come because of the new fool-proof drug test - but that's a small price to pay to be known as the the very first drugs-free Olympics. And as for the rumours about the recently deceased IOC VIP dying in a King's Cross brothel - nonsense. That's just media hype. As are the rumours that the fencing may be dropped because there aren't enough venues or that the la crosse centre isn't actually built yet. In future may we suggest you not believe everything you see on television?Written by

How long is our 100 meter track? How long is it, Mr Wilson?

Funniest show I've ever seen
This Australian "mockumentary" played on America's PBS network a couple of years ago. It took me a while to tune into its highly idiosyncractic satire but once I caught on I was hooked. Bureaucracy, media, sports, almost everything is served up on the platter here. I would pay for a DVD collection of this but, alas, it seems to only available in Australia. Pity.
