Hi Douglas - it's a reality tv program called Bush Slam. They would
take two poets to some remote town and we had to write a poem in three
days. It was enormous fun, and the program itself is very nicely made.
I know I should sit down and watch my ep, if only to watch JK, but I
hate watching myself on tv and never do. I'm reassured that the
responses have been so enthusiastic. The ep with Kate Fagan and Sam
Wagan-Watson last week was terrific.

Australians can watch it on iView if they missed it,
http://www.abc.net.au/iview/ It's filed under arts. But I don't think
that works for overseas people.
