Ask the Leyland Brothers

 

In tonight's Australian Story on ABC TV Mal Leyland for the first time speaks publicly about the Leyland Brothers and why he and Mike (who died in 2009) went their separate ways.

Armed with a camera and a catchy song that few can forget, they produced the quirky television program Ask the Leyland Brothers and made millions of dollars along the way which they subsequently lost in their ill-fated theme park Leyland Brothers World.

The brothers, who were born in England, had arrived in New South Wales in 1950 and were fascinated by the outback and all things Australian. They became quintessential Australian characters and their travel documentaries have become part of Australian television history. Not bad for a pair of Ten-Pound Poms!
