Well done to be chosen for this on Australian television – your home country, where your roots are and where you intend to return. Any way of seeing it in England spoken by a very non technical me!

Is this only viewable in Australia? I looked on our ABC listings in the USA (San Francisco specifically) for last Wednesday and also this coming Wednesday and could not find it there. Could you please let me know? Thanks so much…
