The Screen Guide

BRILLIANT CREATURES is a two-part documentary series focusing on four Australians – satirist Barry Humphries, art critic Robert Hughes, writer Germaine Greer and writer and broadcaster Clive James – who left Australia in the 1960s and became cultural icons, and sometimes iconoclasts, in London and New York. To describe and dissect their individual and collective stories, who better as a tour guide than Man Booker Prize–winner Howard Jacobson, who first recognised them as a powerful intellectual force when he met them some 50 years ago.
