His shows are just getting better and better, making pavlova from a pre mix, quick cook rice out of a packet. Just goes to show we all love a bit of new technology.

Facinating Character !, Thats for sure. Must be very content with the experience he has had with the outback, and all the people he has been associated with over the last 30 or so yrs.

Cheers Axle.

The cynic in me says that after he sits around with the Koori people sharing their tucker & jabbering away, then gets up and leaves that surely one of the Koori ask "anyone know who that fella was"? The reply might be "no idea and I sure can't understand a word he say either. But I can tell you it's not English".

Okay, okay......only joking. He is terrific and I'm glad that feral cat is on someone's menu.

Interesting show so I hope it goes on for a bit longer.

Howdy Fred, I am one of the "moggy lovers" but have no problem with that. There is no place for them out there. Have shot my share while out hunting other game. Same goes I am NOT a dog lover but I still don't like seeing them being mistreated.

I’m afraid Douglas doesn’t rattle my mettles as much as some. The show is becoming repetitive, but I will admit it may be educational for the young.

There’s a lot of old fellas throughout the Kimberley and Pilbura who would give him a run for money. Trouble is, they don’t have a camera or sponsorship.

Regards

Kim

Hi Kim,

Maybe repetitive but has organised segments the way most humans work in life. Ie broken into set groups with defined tasks. I'd say he's done a lot of on how the majority of the population think and organise life.

Sure there's always someone better at specific tasks. However if they were better at all they'd be in his place. Don't see it as anyone but if they were better overall they'd be creating the we see. Ie getting sponsors, creating the series, marketing, etc, etc, etc.

But I guess you're just doing what we do best, tall poppies!!

Put him in a group of 1000's of us that believe we know how to survive, through them in the bush and see who comes out 6mths latter.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not being negative. Your post has rekindled an idea I’ve been playing with for some time. That is to encourage the old bushies to write about their experiences.

How this is done remains a challenge. Many of the old buggars are a closed shop, and won’t open up until a bit of trust is established.

Sure there are a few good books around, but we’re almost loosing word of mouth. Most of these characters are now well into their 70’s.

Regards

Kim

G'day guys, my kids love the computer as much as the next kid, and ours have a time limit, BUT when they know Malcom Douglas is coming on, they yell to me " Dad, Malcom is on, hurry up" , i was brought up camping and i have passed it on, and they reckon anything to do with the great outdoors is fantastic.
More M.D in our family is a must.

cheers,

Lance

Douglas , Hiddins , Leyland Bros , Steve Erwin , are all fine with back up people , resupplies, sponsors , cameras .. But there are people out there today that do exactly what they are doing just as a way of life and not being paid big dollars for it..

Yes Ron, but we dont see them in our lounge rooms.

Nobody's saying he is the oracle of the bush or anything, but he is one of the few that is bringing it for others to see.

That bit kinda went over my head (not the tractors, but the actual location), but I think it was somewhere in the WA wheatbelt.....

G'day Mal & Di

The "old Cockie" as you call him is from the wheet belt town of Kalannie, which is east of Dalwallinu. Both towns are north east (ish) of Perth WA.

I watched him last night instead of the ABC News.

Enjoyed his show, and thank de Lord, he didn't say "Crikey" once.

I like Les. too, but he didn't do a cooking section. Only an eating one.

I picked up some old Jack Absalom dvds recently - very old school and his finger-wagging mannerisms are amusing. The kids are always in hysterics but you can pick up some good tips from him.

snap - I got a couple the other day too

I have "in the steps of Charles Sturt" and "The BIrdvsille track'

Great viewing

Notable - using soap to catch Yabbies - his philosophy on tire pressures (almost opposite to todays theory - although tires were different then too)

Whic ones do you have?

got a pack of four mate - $20 from BCF.

Charles Sturt
Kimberley
Birdsville
Strzelecki

I was gonna mention that very thing, about tyre pressures but didn't. Funny how things/opinions change. The Mrs picked up a couple as well - one "Survival" and one Western NSW (Broken Hill etc) which actually goes onto Eyre Peninsula and is called Lilliput. Although they're all a bit old, they are still largely relevant. I have plenty of respect and admiration for the man but you can't help a wry smirk at his tendency to lecture.

We like the one where he's in Tibooburra and there's a party of people coming out of the pub. He waylays them at the door as they're all coming out ( "Jeez I was only here for a beer and a pie or three" ;)) and has a word in their ear about safety in the bush, saying "I never miss an opportunity to give advice to people...............dadada" He meant well, but.....

Very enjoyable though.

We got a couple of Leyland Bros too, just for old times' sake.

Yeah - and he also says to the guy with a can of beer in his hand - "Good to see you are taking your fire extinguisher with you" - classic

I will get into BCF and pick up the set - I enjoy him and its good to see the areas that he went into and compare them to how they look today
