[ABC/8:00pm] New Inventors. Saving Water Special. It’s impossible to ignore the fact that Australia is in the middle of a severe water crisis. So this week, The New Inventors will dive into the world of water-saving to look at how Australian inventors are taking action to conserve this precious resource. We also re-visit previous water-saving inventions to see where they have ended up. Plus, we’ll expose “The Water Diaries” kept by host James O’Loghlin and the panel to find out who is the most conservative when it comes to water usage. James O’Loghlin and the Saving Water Special panellists have kept “Water Diaries” for 1 week and on tonight’s show, we’ll reveal who was the wisest water user. Was it host James O’Loghlin, science journalist and environmentalist Bernie Hobbs, inventor and architect Sally Dominguez, or agricultural scientist Chris Russell?
