Sean Dooley: The Big Twitch

Session Info:

Session Info:

Humourous account of the year Sean Dooley spent blowing his inheritance to fulfill a childhood dream- breaking the Australian record for seeing more birds in one year than anyone else.

Topics:

  •  A tour of Australia and its birds
  • The adventures and mishaps of an increasingly obsessive birdwatcher in the outback and the characters he meets along the way
  • Reflections on the nature of obsession, loss, happiness, loneliness and what to do if you bump into Dick Smith in the middle of the desert (Back away slowly while making no eye contact – you don’t want to get him over-excited)
