Hear stories of triumph and tenacity; heartache and loss from rodeo riders, outback ringers, cattle traders, bronze sculptors and more.
Lynton Tapp: Outback Ringer to TV Chef
Lynton Tapp had a typical Territory childhood - riding horses and hunting, and not a whole lot of schooling.
But a combination of heartbreaking events - including an accident that could have killed his sister - forced him to imagine life beyond the red dirt. He, of course, ended up in the most unlikely of places - on national television, in a cooking competition.
Lynton reveals his journey to host Caitlyn Hewitt - and no subject was off-limits including his complex relationship with his Dad, his career lows, and his burning desire to return to the bush.

Ron Connley: The Real Man From Snowy River
Ron Connley is a true Australian bushman. Born and raised in the shadow of Mount Hotham in Victoria's High Country, the 84-year-old spent his youth travelling the countryside winning bull-dogging championships and campdrafting titles. But his proudest moment? Taking out the Man from Snowy River title - twice - in his 60s.
He's never strayed from his mountain home for too long, and is still based on his childhood sheep station. But don't let that fool you. Ron has an extraordinarily adventurous spirit and has never let his age dictate what challenges he takes on. Hear host Kay Becker draw some big tales from this even bigger character. Like how he ended his schooling career age 13 with his right hook and the hilarious way he snagged his wife of 57 years.
