Mike and Mal Leyland, also known as The Leyland Brothers, were Australian explorers and documentary film-makers, best known for their popular television show, Ask the Leyland Brothers. The show ran on Australian television from 1976 until 1984.
The west western half of Tasmania is where the unique leatherwood honey is produced. The Leylands answer a request to see how this unusual honey is produced and viewers are shown not only the honey but the amazing world of bees in the extraordinary close ups. The varied fruits of tropical Queensland form the basis of an unusual sequence. The story of Queensland pineapples is only one of the many tropical fruits from the sunshine coast. Lightning Ridge in northern NSW is next on the list as the Leylands take a look at the action packed life style of one local resident Daryl Myers. Daryl not only operated an opal mine but catches wild razor pigs with his bare hands.
