Saw the documentary and thought it was excellent. Some great images,
good research, and a really nice pace to the show - very mallee.

Just to let you know about the Malleefowl documentary on next Thursday
night (see link and info below).
Thurs 4th Feb 8pm ABC TV
This is the broadcast date and time of the Malleefowl Documentary
'It's Gnow or Never' (ABC Channel 1)
The Malleefowl is a miraculous survivor against incredible odds - mass
land clearing, foxes, cats, rangeland grazing and wild fires have driven
the bird into the last Australian mallee remnants and mulga woodlands
where it stubbornly refuses to follow other species onto the extinction
or critically endangered lists. The 'It's Gnow or Never' stories reveal
to the uninitiated, the curious or indifferent, a natural world to die
for. A natural world as precious, as mysterious, as thrilling as
anything on earth, and a community of mind that makes you wish you were
one of their company.
The Malleefowl Preservation Group Inc (MPG) is based in the Gnowangerup
Shire (400 kms south east of Perth) which takes its name from the South
West Noongar Aboriginal name for malleefowl, the "gnow". Concern for the
decline in malleefowl populations resulted in local farmers and
community residents meeting for a bush picnic at Ongerup in August 1992.
Their story has been told in a film documentary for national television
