An animal lover nicknamed 'Kangaroo Dundee' is set to star in a BBC star documentary that follows his life in the Australian Outback mothering orphaned marsupials.

Chris Barnes gave up life in the city to build a shack with no running water or boiler, where he cares for the animals.

The 6ft 7" Australian, nicknamed Brolga, cares for the babies 24 hours-a-day, taking them to the supermarket in nearby Alice Springs and even letting them sleep at the end of his bed.
