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 untouched wilderness regions of Myall Lakes north of Port Stephens in NSW provide a surprisingly tropical setting for the Leylands who investigate the lakes system by sail boat and on the ground. Glimpses of wildlife and virgin bush so close to civilization comes as a pleasant surprise. North to Lone Pine Koala Park in Queensland to film the Koala. Here to answer one of the most asked for animals in the series the Leylands give the viewers close ups of this unique marsupial. A remote sheep station in Western NSW on the banks of the Darling River is the setting for an unusual segment that shows how children of the outback cope with the isolation and how they do their schooling by radio. The Cunningham family are shown living their remote existence, riding horses, mustering sheep, and competing in pony club events.
