Kangaroo Dundee Episode 1 of 6

Brolga is a man with an unusual family - he is 'mum' to almost thirty kangaroos. From his sanctuary near Alice Springs, Australia, he cares for his brood, and spends his days rescuing and raising orphan joeys.

Inside the tin shack Brolga calls home are the most recent additions to his mob, Rex and Ruby. Tiny and fragile, they need constant care, and it is up to Brolga to provide them with everything they need - food, love, and even a makeshift pouch.

Out in the sanctuary, female kangaroo Ella has a joey outstaying his welcome in her pouch, and there is a run-in with Roger. Once a helpless orphan, he is now the mob boss, and even Brolga has to watch his step.
