Who is Malcolm Douglas and where is the new Malcolm Douglas Crocodile and Wildlife Park
1964, 23-year-old Malcolm Douglas and his friend David Oldmeadow ditched their jobs as stock and station agents in the Riverina region of New South Wales and set off on a six-month trip around Australia.Six months turned into four years. It was a journey that shaped Douglas' future. As the pair travelled and explored, they filmed their adventures. The film later turned into the documentary Across the Top, which still holds the rating record for a documentary on Australian television. He went on to produce more than 50 documentaries and films for Channel Seven and Channel Nine.
Filmed in 2008, his six-part series In The Bush With Malcolm Douglas aired in 2009 on Channel Seven to high ratings on Saturday nights, winning its timeslot in four out of the six weeks. Based on these ratings, after the conclusion of the series Channel Seven will replay another Douglas documentary series, In Search of the Big Barra.
On 23 September 2010, Douglas was killed in a car accident at his Wilderness Park, 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) north of Broome, Western Australia. Douglas was found crushed between his vehicle and a tree; in reports police emphasised that his death was not suspicious but are unsure of the cause of the accident.
Douglas is survived by wife, Valerie, and their two adult children.
