'Mum and Josh head out on a five-day hike in the scenic Tasmanian wilderness. There are some funny times and some revealing times. Mum cries herself to sleep a lot and gets trapped in a waterhole by a snake. They get stoned, and they finally talk about Mum's suicide attempts. They walk a really long way.'

2013 winner form y separately published work icon A Moody Christmas Trent O'Donnell , Phil Lloyd , ( dir. Trent O'Donnell ) 2012 Australia : Jungleboys , 2012 Z1897997 2012 series - publisher film/TV humour 'Once a year we visit the Moodys as they come together to share this universally celebrated holiday, stuffed full of all the fun, fights, bad gifts, boring uncles, overbearing in-laws, shocking family secrets and bizarre eccentricities that any family who has experienced the melting pot of Christmas Day will relate to. Because while in theory Christmas is a time for family to share and celebrate, in practice it's often a day spent with relatives you hardly know, where dirty laundry is aired, family rifts resurface, strangers are forced to act like family, and celebratory drinks can disintegrate into drunken rows. As often happens at the Moodys...Each episode takes place on Christmas Day, or during the Christmas period, and 12 months passes between every episode.' (Source: Screen Australia)
