The Western Star - - Tv Guide -

THE Liv­ing Room team sad­dles up for a Mel­bourne Cup-themed episode.

Barry Du Bois un­cov­ers how the Mel­bourne Cup is trans­formed from tiny gold flecks into the shin­ing sym­bol of Aus­tralian horse rac­ing.

For those in­volved in mak­ing it – from the min­ers who dig the gold to the spinner who shapes it – it’s a lot of pres­sure, with the end re­sult need­ing ac­cu­racy within a tenth of a mil­lime­tre.

Dr Chris Brown heads to

The Hunter Val­ley, where he meets a horse with a high-pitched prob­lem.

Come race day, rev­ellers across Aus­tralia will be scram­bling for a drink and canape. To make sure you im­press friends and fam­ily at your Mel­bourne Cup party, Miguel Maestre (pic­tured) has three canapes that are quick, easy and de­li­cious.
