Not only is Seed Hunter making its way around the world (see our previous news item), it is also coming to television screens in its home country of Australia.

Seed Hunter addresses a topic that is vital for the future of the planet: finding seeds that may help save the world from its greatest ever crisis – a global food shortage brought about by human-induced climate change.

Join Dr Ken Street – a real life version of Indiana Jones – and his team of ‘gene detectives’ as they hunt for plant genes that will help our food withstand the impact of 21st century global warming.

ABC2 will be showing Seed Hunter on Sunday May 23rd at midnight (Sunday morning).
