Epic new Australian drama takes flight

By SEVEN

RFDS set to soar from 8.40pm Wednesday, 11 August

Based on remarkable real-life stories, the gripping new Australian drama RFDS lands after the Olympics at 8.40pm Wednesday, 11 August on Channel 7 and 7plus.

Filmed on location in and around Broken Hill, RFDS captures the beauty and brutality of Australia’s vast centre, where the doctors, nurses, pilots and support staff of the RFDS negotiate the unique challenges of emergency rescues across some of the most inhospitable places in the country.

RFDS stars Logie Award-winning actor Stephen Peacocke (Home and Away, Wanted), Logie Award-winning star of stage and screen Rob Collins (Mystery Road S2, Total Control, Glitch) and acclaimed actors Emma Hamilton (Mr Selfridge, The Tudors), Justine Clarke (Tangle, Hungry Ghosts, The Time Of Our Lives) and Ash Ricardo (Offspring, Bite Club).

Determined to escape her past and start a new life, Dr Eliza Harrod (Emma Hamilton) arrives in outback Australia from the UK. Only days into her new role at the Royal Flying Doctor Service, Eliza finds herself at the forefront of a catastrophic emergency retrieval while Flight Nurse Pete Emerson (Stephen Peacocke) faces an unthinkable tragedy.

Audiences can expect beautiful scenery, deep and thoughtful storylines and a really, good honest look at how the RFDS does its vital work.

Justine Clarke (Base Manager Leonie Smith)

It’s not lost on us that we are representing a really important organisation that means so much to Australia.

Stephen Peacocke (Pete Emerson)

There’s a connection that the folks of the RFDS have with the people that they service which goes beyond doctor patient dynamics. They are a real part of the community.

Rob Collins (Dr Wayne Yates)

RFDS is an Endemol Shine Banks production for the Seven Network, with major production investment from Seven in association with Screen Australia. It was financed with support from Screen NSW through the Made in NSW Fund and the Regional Filming Fund.

RFDS premieres 8.40pm Wednesday, 11 August on Channel 7 and 7plus

Farmer Wants A Wife Reunion: Real love, surprises and secret revelations

By SEVEN

Which Farmer’s love is still burning bright?

The unmissable Farmer Wants A Wife Reunion is just around the corner, premiering 7.30pm Wednesday, 11 August, after the Olympics.

Join host Natalie Gruzlewski as she sits down with Farmers Will, Andrew, Matt, Sam and Rob to find out who is still in love, who has found their happily ever after and whether another Farmer wedding is on the horizon!

Each of our five lonely Farmers opened their hearts in the hope of finding the one. Thousands of single ladies applied to meet them, and each Farmer chose five ladies to embark on a once in a lifetime opportunity. Over six weeks, these ladies got to know their Farmer on their beloved farm.

Farmer Will chose 32-year-old nurse Jaimee to share his life. Despite forming bonds with lots of his ladies, Farmer Matt’s heart was broken when 25-year-old executive assistant Tara left his farm before realising her mistake. Following his heart, he chose Tara to start a life with.

Youngest Farmer Sam was smitten with 24-year-old oncology nurse Mackenzie and 24-year-old student nurse Allanah from the start, and despite having strong feelings for both, he bowed out early on his search for love. Our man from Snowy River, Farmer Rob, said goodbye to his chosen ladies and hello to four new love interests, but decided the lightning bolt had failed to strike on both occasions.

For Farmer Andrew however, it was love at first sight when he met 27-year-old community relations worker Jess.

The Farmer Wants A Wife Reunion is here. Join host Natalie Gruzlewski and Farmers Will, Andrew, Matt, Sam and Rob for a night of surprises, secret revelations and, of course, real love.

To say I’m a fan of the AGT franchise is an understatement – I’ve been watching since the very first season! I’m a performer who has taken many stages throughout the, well, many stages of my career – be it acting, singing, dancing, hosting, juggling, magic-ing, even breathing fire! – and I have developed enormous respect for anyone with the courage to pursue their talents and passions at any level, let alone televised on a national stage.

Farmer Andrew finds love

By SEVEN

Delegate sheep farmer head over heels

Farmer Andrew has found love on the new season of Australia’s #1 dating show, Farmer Wants A Wife. 

The world’s most successful dating show has struck again and, for at least one farmer, the dream has come true. I came here to do one thing, and I did it. I fell in love,” announces the smitten farmer.  

Describing himself as a laid-back, genuine guy who doesn’t shy away from a good time, the 30-year-old sheep farmer from Delegate, New South Wales, is now one step closer to realising his dreams of raising a family on the farm. 

An unmissable love story is on the way, but one question remains: who has stolen the heart of the cheeky, footy-loving farmer?

Is it retail store manager, Ashleigh (Queensland, 28), community relations manager, Jess (Melbourne, 27) or social worker Rachael (New South Wales, 30)? 

While the identity of Farmer Andrew’s new love remains a secret, it’s no secret what Farmer Andrew values in a relationship, “I’m a glass-half-full type of guy. I like to be optimistic about life. I enjoy a good chat and plenty of laughs.”

With 170 marriages, one long-term relationship and 387 beautiful farmer babies worldwide, Farmer Wants A Wife is the world’s most successful dating show. In Australia alone, the series has resulted in nine marriages, one long-term relationship and 23 babies.

Get ready, Australia’s favourite bush fairy-tale is about to begin as five new, hard-working Aussie farmers embark on their quest for everlasting love on Farmer Wants A Wife.

Farmer Sam is ready to wed

By SEVEN

Canowindra farmer’s search for love on Farmer Wants A Wife

Five new, hard-working Aussie farmers are about to begin their quest for love as the new season of Australia’s #1 dating show, Farmer Wants A Wife, returns to Seven.

Farmer Sam, 25, from Canowindra, NSW, is hoping to find real love the old-fashioned way after trying his luck with a dating app only to match three ladies in a 150 kilometre radius – and find out one was his next-door neighbour.

The middle child of seven siblings, family is everything to sheep and crop farmer Sam. Raised on the family farm, he hopes to watch his future children grow up on the same lush pastures he did. 

The keen horseman is looking to build a future with a fun, loving and intelligent woman who has a great sense of humour and shares his passion for farming and adventure.

“I haven’t found love yet. I’m the only single one in the family,” says Farmer Sam, who insists trust is a must-have in any relationship. “When you go to family events, they say ‘Are you bringing anyone’ and I say ‘Nup, just myself!’.”

The road to love is never easy, and the gravity of making the wrong decision is not lost on Farmer Sam, who will welcome five ladies to his beloved farm in a bid to get to know them better. “The thought of sending your potential wife home is terrifying,” admits Farmer Sam, who will romance his chosen ladies with dream overnight dates and luxury country getaways. 

Get ready for a brand new crop of Farmers on their search for the one. Farmer Wants A Wife, the world’s most successful dating show is coming soon to Channel 7.
