This series explores the delights and diffic...ulties of trying to sustain oneself off what one man can hunt, grow and fish. Te Radar is discovering there is much to keep one occupied on long cold nights in the tent; do saucers of beer really keep snails off cabbages? Does goat make tasty salami? And what happens when the time comes for Willie the pet pig to hit the dinner platter?

          All 6 seasons boxed up & bursting with an extra exclusive disc full of choice bits! From the beginning New Zealand's one-family crime wave captured the imagination of the viewing public, courting controversy and counting fans along the way. This comprehensive 24 disc collection f...eatures every outrageous episode and dishes out all the dirt on the one and only West family. With their reputation preceding them, its time to set the record straight - once and for all! With husband Wolfgang in jail, Cheryl, the bossy but passionate matriarch of the family, throws down the gauntlet to her wild, spirited and all-corrupting offspring now is the time to clean up their act or else! But despite all good intent, a spinning moral compass will always lead you astray and back to bad old habits.The Wests are made up of son Van, whose simple ways often get him into a world of strife, his exceptionally bright and equally scheming twin Jethro and sexy sister Pascalle who firmly believes that you are right to dream big and still look gorgeous while youre doing it. Theres also Loretta, the mastermind of the sublime and last, but by no means least grandpa Ted who can be quite a softie when hes not being a total bastard. Boozing with the bros, taking in Munters many pearls of wisdom, scheming the next con, theirs is a choice neighborhood at the best and worst of times. Who could ask for more? OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNE is a bold comedy-drama about a dysfunctional but loving family surrounded by the strife of life. Bawdy, action-packed, satirical and trashy, this is cutting-edge contemporary drama at its most delectably subversive. Its all choice and its all yours!

          Robert O'Hara Burke was the first white man to cross Australia from coast to coast. He was the leader of the largest land expedition Australia had ever seen and the story of its adventures is both enthralling and scarifying. But its climax is the stuff of fiction. Although succes...sful in crossing Australia, Burke was critically late getting back to his supply camp in the centre of the continent. He had instructed his companions there to wait 3 months for him and if he hadn't returned from his 1500 mile round trip by then, they should presume him dead and head for home. They waited the three months for Burke and then hung on for a whole extra month before finally giving up hope. On the morning of April 21st, 1861 they abandoned camp and headed south. Just 9 hours later a terminally exhausted Burke with his 2 surviving companions stumbled into the camp to find it deserted. Emergency supplies were not enough to save them and Burke died of starvation two months later in the arms of fellow Irishman John King.
