FRIDAY RED DOG
WITH LEIGH PAATSCH
8.30PM, NINE This superb, all-ages picture is based on a true story, irresistibly embellished by the Outback myth that grew around it. There’s a fair bit of the popular book by British writer Louis de Bernieres in it, too. The title character, a copper-hued kelpie, which became a living legend in WA’s Pilbara region in the ’70s, was played by a remarkably expressive pooch named Koko.
