Jil­la­roo School

Sun­day, ABC, 6.30pm

Isis Town and Country - - Television -

It’s easy to for­get just how vast our coun­tryun­try is. The enor­mous Out­back is home to more than 90 mil­lion sheep and cat­tle. But there is a prob­lem, many of the men who worked the harsh and un­for­giv­ing land have moved on, be it to our ex­pand­ing ci­ties, to take ad­van­tage of our min­ing boom, or other op­por­tu­ni­ties. This se­ries fol­lows five wannabe jil­la­roos as they are pushed to the limit to find out if they can cut it in a his­tor­i­cally male-dom­i­nated world. Among them iss Tessa (right), a young sin­gle mum try­ing build a new life for her and her son. Putting them through their paces is horse master Bill Wil­loughby, a man whose wit is as dry as the soil.
