Hugh’s Three Hun­gry Boys

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Thurs­day, 9.30pm, Life­Style The im­prob­a­bly named Hugh Fearn­leyWhit­tingstall, best known as host of the seem­ingly end­less River Cottage pro­grams ( Es­cape to River Cottage, Re­turn to River Cottage, River Cottage For­ever ) passes the ba­ton to the next gen­er­a­tion in this amus­ing ad­ven­ture se­ries. He chal­lenges three young mates to travel from River Cottage to Land’s End in five weeks eat­ing only food caught and picked on the land. This means they must travel through those well-worn foodie habi­tats in Eng­land’s south, Devon and Corn­wall. With zero money — no cheeky ATM cards al­lowed — the mates must com­plete their mis­sion in a three-tonne, 1980s elec­tric milk float with a top speed of 27km/h. Not only must they keep body and soul to­gether, they also have to find re­new­able fuel for their ridicu­lous ve­hi­cle. For­tu­nately for us, Trevor Thom and Tim are de­ter­mined to have a good time and so they make good com­pany as well as many fine gags at the ex­pense of the old man.
