Maybe they wanted a look like 'Bait' (a good 16mm movie).

Not sure you can do ECN-2 in a bucket😃

Maybe in Australia when it's really hot..........

I once read in an old magazine that the Australian adventurer and entrepreneur Dick Smith used super8 to film one of his expeditions. This could have been the 70s or early 80s. There was a photo showing him and a rather large Chinon camera (can't recall the model.) 

And yes, I remember the Leyland Brothers show. I always watch it when repeats are shown. The Simpson Desert special they did was really interesting. 

By the way, with all this renewed interest in film lately, I wonder if Kodak will actually release their new super 8 camera any time in the near future.

This one, but in home-movie style. The later ones are 16mm- I expect he dropped S8 like a hot brick when there was the money for 16.
