Adam – Your beautiful country seat
Tonight, Adam builds an Australian hardwood bench that will look great in any outdoor setting. This is really a project that you can have a crack at this weekend. All the materials are easy to get at the hardware store, easy to make, and will cost less than you might expect to pay for it at the store. And the beautiful thing about it, that the harsher it was, the more eternally rustic it seemed!

Ed Fast – Sweet Potato and Bacon Pancakes
Tired of your usual cooking repertoire? This week, Fast Ed shows you how to mix it up without breaking the bank.

Charlie – Dune bashing – Sorrento
The sand dunes of Sorrento, on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, are hardly what plant lovers dream of.

But landscaper Steve Taylor has worked his magic and created a stunning and unique Mediterranean garden full of inspiration. With ornamental pears, stone walls, and plenty of lovely green plants, there is plenty here for Charlie to explore.

Dr. Harry – Wolfhound’s Walking Issues
Dr. Harry has a dog problem unlike anything he’s seen before: a dog that doesn’t like to walk! It may sound like non-comic behavior but in fact, there may be a more serious reason why Spud the Irish Wolfhound behaves this way, as Dr. Harry is about to find out.
