We all love good 4WD/Road-based travel shows. It inspires us to turn off the TV and do it ourselves while often picking up a few good tips along the way. I'm always on the lookout for something I haven't seen. What are some of your favourites?

They all seem to be little more than advertorials!

What do you mean...... the only brands you need on your 4x4 are Lightforce, Cooper , Waeco and Blackwidow.

The must be good because all the journalists and presenters use them!

Definitely the Leyland Brothers. Nobody since, however.
I have been able to pick up various Leyland Brothers dvds in the cheap bin at Big W over the last 6 months. $5 each. Still great to watch, although the fasions are worth a giggle as well.

And they didn't need a big Akubra to convince anyone that they were 'outback types', unlike some of the desk jockeys that are around now.

For my money the late Malcolm Douglas was the pick. Ran in to him at the Arafura Swamp once. Had a cuppa with him and he was brilliant to talk to. Down to earth and obliging. Shame he went the way he did.
The rest are nothing but paid advertisements for several brands. Not necessarily good brands either!

Hey yeah, now I feel like I've dissed some legends (I simply didn't think of them this morning!)

How about Harry Butler (and his Land Rover)? Not quite pure travel but it was another show that really opened my eyes to things beyond my parents' backyard (and some things in it!)

Forgot about Harry Butler but as you say, not quite travel adventure... but great none the less.

Only 2 travel shows have inspired me to actually do a specific trip & they weren't even in a 4x4. Rex Ellis boating down the Warburton River to Lake Eyre & Malcom Douglas in his small boat exploring the Kimberly coast from Wyndam to Derby. One down & one to go :-)

+1 all4adventure they have the predictable merch plugs, but dont try to be so polished at the presenting and just tell it like it is. Have some good tips thrown in also
