dc.description.abstractThis article considers television made by two Australian brothers, Mike and Mal Leyland, specifically their long-running series from the 1970s, Ask the Leyland Brothers. The program used viewer participation to set an itinerary for the brothers, who travelled extensively by car to film responses to viewers' questions about Australia. Mike and Mal Leyland brought images of the Australian countryside to very large television audiences, providing entertainment and instructions about how to travel, appreciate and consume the country they and their audience lived in. While this example of 'instructional TV' was extremely popular in its 10-year run on television, and is fondly remembered by audiences, it is not prominent in the 'official' discourse of Australia's TV history; thus, it poses a particular set of questions about television and cultural memory.en_US
