GREAT AUSTRALIANS OF
Saturday 7.30pm, Bio
A celebration of the achievements of Australian of the Year 2013 nominees.
The featured Australians are Kerry Stokes ( WA), Jessica Mauboy ( NT), Andrew Hughes ( Tas), Ita Buttrose ( NSW), Sonya Ryan ( SA), Professor T John Martin ( Vic), Francis Owusu (ACT) and Laurie Lawrence ( Qld).
Their life experiences vary greatly, but each has made significant contributions to society. Three actors ( Philip Glenister, Keeley Hawes and Felicity Kendal) swap the stage for the kitchen and join Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall in a cookery master class at River Cottage farm.
Kendal was a small screen favourite after starring in the series The Good Life, in which she and her husband turned to self-sufficiency. The trio loves Hugh’s way of life among his home-grown food.
