The pair have been nominated for  ‘Brilliant Creatures’ in the Most Outstanding Factual Series category and ‘Bushwhacked!’ for the Most Outstanding Children’s Program.

‘Brilliant Creatures’, a two-part prime-time series written and presented by Booker Prize winner Howard Jacobson, followed the meteoric rise of four of Australia’s greatest cultural exports: Germaine Greer, Clive James, Barry Humphries and the late Robert Hughes. It was screened last year on ABC1 and BBC4 to critical acclaim, and was nominated for an AACTA award.
It will compete with ‘Changing Minds’, ‘Coast Australia’, ‘First Contact’ and ‘The War That Changed Us’ for the Logie.
