What's the name of the song you use in your commercial on the lifestyle channel? Absolutely love it!

Hi there,
Thanks for your feedback! It is a beautiful track. It was written and composed specially for the campaign by Groove Quantize of Rozelle, Sydney……a very talented duo of composers and musicians.

I just want to know when the River Cottage Australia will be back on TV as I enjoy it very muck as I do the English River Cottage.

I really enjoy watching. I have learned so much and am looking forward to seeing more. I myself am trying to become more self suffiencent even though I live in town. I am trying to learn how to make my own cheese and a preserve what I can for future use. Not just for me but my family as well.

My husband and I bought 30 acres in Central Queensland, we are trying to be as self-sufficient as possible. We have Boer goats cleaning up the block, they are great weed exterminators. Chickens for eggs, ducks, geese and turkeys, but we are wanting some beat chickens, what are the best for CQ, that will tolerate the heat? Keep up the good work, we enjoy watching the show to see what you will do next

I have been watching River Cottage from the beginning, when Hugh used to catch eels in the creek beside his first house. He has always conducted himself with dignity & intelligence. It is truly disappointing that in the Australian version we have to reveal our chronic national self-consciousness and abhorrence of any sign of intellectualism, through incessant and exaggerated blokey language, with everyone being called "mate" at every opportunity, and use of other lowest-common-denominator colloquialisms. It makes me cringe, and I hate to think of the impression it will give if ever shown in the UK or elsewhere. We are not all like that. Having a certain level of education and expertise should be demonstrated with refinement and pride.
