Herald Sun - Switched On - - Thursday -

THIS heart-warm­ing doco about a unique Aussie char­ac­ter will be a hit from the moment rugged-but-hand­some Brolga wakes up in his out­back shed and a joey peeks its head out from un­der his doona.

He’s a man’s man — a former kick­boxer — but sensi- tive too. He res­cues or­phaned joeys from the pouches of road­kill and raises them at his sanc­tu­ary near Alice Springs.

He lives among the kan­ga­roos, treated like one of their own. He’s just like Ti­mothy Tread­well and the bears in Griz­zly Man, ex­cept he doesn’t get eaten at the end. Ends on a cliffhanger: Will Daisy sur­vive her in­juries?
