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.


Again the Leylands are off to the desolate north western coast of Western Australia to look at a rare ghost town situated on the seafront. The town of Cossack is visited by Mike Leyland, who looks into it’s history as well as its attractions for the present day visitor prepared to make the journey to this forgotten part of our coastline. A close up look a the ferocious Tasmanian Devil features in this episode as the Leylands look at these nocturnal creatures both in the wild and in captivity. The ferocious sharks of our oceans provide a totally different subject as the Leylands take a look at what provokes shark attacks and extreme close up shots of the deadly white pointer sharks in the clear waters of the Barrier Reef. This segment includes a talk with Henri Bource, a shark attack victim who lost his leg in a brutal attack a few years ago.
