Title : Two on The Great Divide
Duration : 3 x 60 min
Broadcaster : ABC1
The third in the successful ‘Two Men’ series, environmentalist Tim Flannery and satirist John Doyle travel along the Divide by car, by foot, by boat and by air, as they endeavour to climb six of the most important spectacular peaks along the range.
But its not just spectacular scenery and beautiful vistas. True to the title, John and Tim also set out to investigate some of Australia’s ‘Great Divides’ in society. The ‘Great Divides’ include debates over climate, mining, food security, land ownership, patriotism, censorship and wealth distribution. They will also look over some less weighty issues; Melbourne versus Sydney, hippies versus hoons, tidy versus untidy towns.
Each episode features the same eclectic range of stories that characterised the earlier series. There are moments of adventure, moments when the boys excitedly dip into the fossil or historical record, and other times when they simply revel in quirky Australian characters.
