Returning: Australia Remastered

Lush alpine regions play a central role to the animals living along the east coast.

Australia Remastered returns with new episodes and a new timeslot on ABC.

It will screen on Mondays from next week with an episode, “Wild Alps.”

Join host Aaron Pedersen as he takes audiences on a journey around Australia, exploring the country’s iconic wildlife, its unique landscapes and the great oceans that surround it in the series Australia Remastered.

Australia might be world famous for its outback and red deserts, but there are also lush alpine

While the winter may be a bleak time for those who remain above the snow line, but when spring arrives the snow will begin to melt, and what happens next is critical for life both here and far beyond the mountains.

There is absolutely no way that the photographers would have captured such footage with so little room to spare (especially when shooting to 35mm film). As I have said elsewhere, it is an absolutely travesty for such a treasure trove of footage to be butchered in this way merely to appease those who expect every pixel on their TVs be filled.

    Perhaps the undiscerning masses wouldn’t care, but I find the tight framing to be intolerably distracting. Ah, what could have been…
