THE LIVING ROOM
Taking on a renovation project from the real world – one with considerably more emotional impact than that required for a powder room makeover on a reality contest – Cherie Barber guides two sisters through the minefield of preparing their recently inherited parents’ home for sale. Elsewhere, travelling veterinarian, Dr Chris Brown soaks up the rays in Tahiti, and Miguel Maestre makes a batch of moch-chip biscuits at a Sydney coffee bean roastery.
If Emily Blunt’s smashing performance as the supernatural supernanny in the 2018 sequel left you wanting more, then where better to turn than this 1964 original motion picture? Making her feature film debut, a young British triple threat known as Julie Andrews is bewitching in the role that was to be a dress rehearsal for her most famous – that of another perpetual optimist, the singing nun in The Sound of Music, released the following year.
