Antonio Carluccio, one of the world’s most well-known and respected chefs, is taken on a journey of discovery into Noongar country,
the south-west corner of Western Australia.
In one of the largest bio diversity areas in the world, Carluccio learns about Australia’s indigenous history, spanning the culture, art and

Aboriginal calendar and the availability of native and foraged foods at different times of the year.
Along the way, TV presenter Richard Walley introduces Carluccio to local characters who accompany them on their quest as they hunt,

From birthday bashes and hectic housewarmings to romantic engagement dinners and exotic bon voyage farewell parties, our highly
competitive cooking couples have to dig deep and cater at a scale and to culinary standards they’ve never attempted before.

A unique look into the life of a Hollywood icon

Machine. He also featured in Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds and starred alongside John Wayne in The Train Robbers.
Taylor’s rugged on-screen and off-screen persona created a brand of Australian masculinity now enjoyed by actors such as Mel Gibson,
Russell Crowe and Sam Worthington. This enlightening and very personal documentary features interviews with Rod Taylor before his
death in 2015. There are also interviews with a variety of actors, including Tippi Hedren and Dame Maggie Smith, as well as producers
