Country Breakfast for January 26, 2013

Fri, 25 Jan 2013 13:40:00 +1100

We've got snakes and turtles, and even a game of horse soccer for you this week. We're also soaring high above the desert in central Australia, and chilling out with a horse massage. In the Northern Territory Indigenous rangers are mustering feral camels; and they're searching for rare orchids in western Victoria. 1. NESTING TURTLES IN THE SAND - Fleur Bainger (CARNARVON WA) Three of the world's most endangered turtle species - the loggerhead, green and hawksbill turtles - nest within the remote Ningaloo Marine Park of Western Australia. Their migrations and nesting behaviours are carefully monitored by scientific volunteers working with the Gnaraloo Turtle Conservation program. Reporter Fleur Bainger heads out at dusk into the sand dunes with team leader Kimmie Riskus and Perth-based volunteer Fiona Morgan to track the turtles coming ashore. The volunteers spend months at a time camping out at Gnaraloo Bay, gathering valuable data on turtle numbers and hatching rates, important information when only one in 10,000 turtle babies survive. 2. SNAKES IN THE SHED - Greg Muller (Melbourne VIC) Do you know what's inside your neighbour's shed? In an unassuming backyard in suburban Melbourne snake handler Sean McCarthy houses up to 200 snakes, including venomous inland taipans, tiger snakes and even an albino death adder. Sean believes snakes are largely misunderstood and people have an unnatural fear of the reptiles. He shows reporter Greg Muller around his collection and has some words of advice on dealing with snakes in and around the house. 3. CHOPPERS CHASE THE CAMELS - Caddie Brain (Alice Springs NT) It's taken three years of planning and organisation but the Central Lands Council in the Northern Territory has finally conducted its first feral camel muster. Indigenous rangers in 4WDs and a helicopter musterer successfully caught about 60 camels in a day-long operation on the Haasts Bluff aboriginal land trust, about 400 west of Alice Springs. Reporter Caddie Brain is there to record all the action. 4. ORCHID BLOOMS IN THE DESERT - Laura Poole (Horsham VIC) The volunteers are equipped with GPS devices and two-way radios, on the hunt for rare orchids in the Little Desert National Park in western Victoria. It's part of an annual survey by the Department of Sustainability and Environment to locate threatened species and this year they're hoping to find the Caladenia Arenaria, otherwise known as the sandhill spider orchid. Reporter Laura Poole joins the hunt with survey co-ordinator Dr Noushka Reiter and members of the Australasian Native Orchid Society. 5. KICKING GOALS WITH HORSE SOCCER - Paul Sutherland (Mt Isa QLD) It started out as a way to develop and improve the horse riding skills of pony club members. Now it's become a popular sport for youngsters living in north-west Queensland. Reporter Paul Sutherland drops in on a training session for "horse soccer" at the Hughenden pony club, conducted under the watchful eye of chief instructor Melissa Driscoll. The game sees young riders coaxing their ponies around the field, trying to get them in position to "kick" an oversized soccer ball through a set of posts to score a goal. 6. MASSAGE FOR HORSES - Miranda Saunders (Bega NSW) It's not just humans who ache for a massage at the end of a long day in the saddle - apparently horses do to! Anna Ford has worked as a qualified equine masseuse for more than a decade. Reporter Miranda Saunders watches as she gives six-year-old hack "DJ" a full body massage on a farm near Bega in southern New South Wales. 7. GLIDING ABOVE THE DESERT - Brendan Phelan, field reporter (Alice[...]

Country Breakfast for January 5, 2013

Fri, 04 Jan 2013 10:16:00 +1100

Some nostalgia and history this week as we head out to a dig site in the Northern Territory that's literally overflowing with fossilised bones; and we get a sneakpeak into a treasured collection of bric-a-brac in Charters Towers. We also fire up some old kerosene lamps in the Kimberley; and take a trip back in time when a flotilla of historic paddle steamers takes over the Murray River. We also go tagging turtles in northern Australia; introduce you to a family of whip crackers; an all female shearing team takes to the boards outside Orange; and refugees bring in the fruit in Victoria's Goulburn Valley

Country Breakfast for December 28, 2012

Fri, 28 Dec 2012 12:39:00 +1100

This week it's all about food and wine ... an appropriate topic during the festive season. We get an insight into how a community food program works; we go to a recorking clinic with precious bottles of wine; and step up to the tasting table at an olive oil show. We also combine chocolate and beer to make a chocolate-flavoured stout; join some Tasmanian school students as their camembert cheese goes before the judges; and taste some rare native oysters. 1. Providing produce to the people - Eliza Wood (Burnie TAS) From small beginnings back in 2009 Penelope Dodd and her group of volunteers from the "Produce to the People" organisation now deliver up to 2000kg of fresh vegetables a month to community organisations in north-west Tasmania. The fresh food is donated by vegetable processors in the region and home gardeners. The scheme started as a way to put excess produce to good use and encourage people to grow their own and cook with local vegetables. Reporter Eliza Wood joins Penelope on one of her regular delivery runs. 2. Fruity oil flavours - Julia Holman (Canberra ACT) Tasting and judging olive oil can be a bit like eating your way through a bowl of fruit salad. Green banana flavours, tropical fruits, even a touch of nectarine can be detected in the oils. Reporter Julia Holman fronts up at the Royal Canberra Olive Oil Show where 60 extra virgin oils are set out for the judges to sip and slurp. Show chairman Richard Gawel takes her through the process, including her very own taste test. 3. Recorking your precious wine - Laura Poole (Adelaide SA) Some people invest in bottles of fine wine for their financial future, other for their drinking pleasure. Either way these bottles of sometimes very, very expensive wine need to be maintained. The South Australian-based Penfolds company, makers of the famous Grange wine series, recently held a recorking clinic at a vineyard estate in the Adelaide Hills. Reporter Laura Poole joins chief winemaker Peter Gago as he tests bottles of wine up to 50-years-old. 4. Native oysters make a comeback - Ginger Gorman, producer/presenter (Canberra ACT) They're known as the ostrea angasi, a rare native oyster that's making a comeback in southern New South Wales. David Maidment, from Australian Native Shellfish, is growing the oysters in the pristine waters of Wagonga Inlet, near Narooma. While not as big as the better known rock oyster, the native variety is proving popular with restauranteurs. ABC Canberra presenter Ginger Gorman heads out with David to experience oyster farming firsthand. 5. Cheese in the classroom - Jane Ryan (Burnie TAS) Some have never even tasted camembert before but that hasn't stopped them trying their hand at cheese making. Eight schools across northern Tasmania have been involved in the "cheese in the classroom" project run by Dairy Australia and Dairy Tasmania where students make cheese from scratch as part of their school science program. Reporter Jane Ryan joins three students in Ulverstone as their wheels of camembert are about to be judged. 6. Brewing a chocolate stout - Olivia Garnett (Bunbury WA) You'd think you'd have to be on a winner if you were combining chocolate and beer in a new drink! In the Eagle Bay micro brewery in the Margaret River region of Western Australia, a local chocolate maker and a beer brewer have joined forces to create a unique chocolate stout. They use the husks of roasted cocoa beans to add the flavour. Reporter Olivia Garnett pops in as head brewer Nick d'Espeissis and chocolate maker Josh Bahen mix up another batch. 7. Chasin[...]
