I found it interesting & though others who may have missed it may also. They interviewed a GP and he also talked about his hobby.

I saw it on iView as I don't have a TV. Not sure if Landline is still re-broadcast today?

This segment: http://www.abc.net.au/landline/content/2013/s3843596.htm

P.S.

I really liked this segment also beside his many small agri buisnesses which were very interesting and well thought out he seemed like a pretty remarkable guy being chinese malay and serving as a contry town GP for 40 years would have been a huge culture change to what he was used to.

I enjoyed that. He seems like the sort of person who'd be good to have a chat to.

Truly a remarkable individual and so well deserving of his award, it is a sad situation that many doctors find themselves in these days in small to medium country towns, as they are caught between a rock and a hard place especially some of these older doctors which have huge commitments to their communities, The doctor that serves the country town and surrounding area where I am located is well into his eighties and hardly has any time off, constantly on call 24/7. His drive is his patients, cannot attract any young doctors from the big smoke out this way, something is majorly wrong with the system.
Perhaps a scheme where by hex fees are wiped if after young graduates do their internships in the big city hospitals they spend say 4 years in the bush?

I enjoyed the story, & appreciated the commitment made. I think I would like to try squab, but I think I would prefer to try it without the head on.

Yeah I really enjoyed that landline article on Sunday, it is still repeated on Monday mornings (11:00 am I think) the squab looked really yummy didn't it.

I really like this guy he seems to be into the same thing as I am aquaculture ( I breed clown fish and marine ornamental marine shrimp called peppermint shrimp ) and I am into silkies in truth I am really hooked in silkies now.
