Aaron Pedersen presents AUSTRALIA REMASTERED featuring Australia’s iconic wildlife and landscapes

Join host Aaron Pedersen as he takes audiences on a journey around Australia, exploring the country’s iconic wildlife, its unique landscapes and the great oceans that surround it in new series Australia Remastered, airing on ABC and iview on Sundays at 6pm, starting 30 August.

Across 15 weeks, Pedersen, a proud Arrenente and Arabana man, explores everything from orca pods and wombat kingdoms, to the epic seasons of Kakadu and the rugged beauty of Australia’s arid Red Centre, plus the vast aquatic wildernesses of the Indian, Pacific and Southern Oceans. Offering insights into the stories of the land and the animals that live there, rare footage is deftly woven together with the latest scientific research, shining a new light on Australia’s remarkable natural world.

The series draws upon the ABC’s rich treasure trove of unique 16mm and 35mm archive footage, which has been digitally remastered, preserving the footage – some of which may never be captured again – so it can be enjoyed by audiences for generations.

Over 15 hour-long episodes, Australia Remastered focuses on the country’s wildlife, landscape and its coastlines:

Australia Remastered: Wild Australians explores the lives of iconic Australian animals, including kangaroos, platypuses, echidnas, wombats, parrots, orcas and reptiles.

Australia Remastered: National Treasures showcases places of ecological significance and natural beauty, including the Northern Territory’s Kakadu National Park, with its extreme wet and harsh dry seasons; Australia’s distinctive Red Centre; the pristine southern island of Tasmania; the Australian Alps, the country’s highest mountain range; and the ancient Daintree rainforests that sit alongside the largest living structure visible from space, the Great Barrier Reef.

Australia Remastered: Oceans looks at the three great bodies of water that surround the country, the Indian, the Pacific and the Southern Oceans, and their diverse aquatic creatures. As environmental changes heat the globe, life is changing for everything beneath the waves and along the coasts. 

Australia Remastered is an astonishing and timely reminder of the immense value of Australia’s wild heritage. Grab the family and join the ABC in celebrating our beautiful country on Sunday nights at 6pm.

Produced by WildBear Entertainment in association with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. ABC Commercial holds worldwide distribution rights.
