The Weekend Prospector

Series 4 2021 on 7mate
Starts October 2021 on 7mate.
Each week The Weekend Prospector tackles some of Australia’s most famous gold rush regions as one man will risk life and limb each week to take his audience to the edge of your seat with his unquenchable, insatiable thirst for gold.

Australia boasts some of the most rugged and most dangerous terrain in the world including extreme deserts, mountainous ranges, exotic beaches and of course the most deadly of them all “The Outback”.

Our host and geologist  Andrew Bales has spent the past 35 years unearthing fact from fiction and brushing aside some of the planet’s most deadliest snakes and crocodiles in search of Australia’s Outback Gold. 

The Weekend Prospepctor is one man’s quest to discover a bygone era, an era without written records, an era of Chinese whispers and myths of golden reefs and fortune, an era of buried treasures and hardships, turmoil and even murder, an era which will take him a to a place very few have been before and survived in his mission to discover Gold.

  • ON TOUR with ALLAN BORDER TOMORROW!! I love this part of my job. Our new series called On Tour with Allan Border starts tomorrow at 11.58am on 7mate. This was one of biggest productions that MCW Productions has ever put together. The hardest component was dealing with the ever changing Covid 19 laws here in Victoria, so it would be derelict of me not to mention the sheer strength and character of so many amazing people including, Hugh Ryan Vikki Ryan Mark Hulford Charlee Hulford Ashe Factor and his 2 boys Tyson and Diesel for being our 3 storyline generations and sacrificing 3 months of their lives to put this together. To every cameraman that endured hard schedules and even harder working conditions during Winter my hat goes of to Jake Bekker Michael Delmarco Mark Harrison and Mr. Hollywood Ben Mix for making the impossible possible. To Jessica Mann and Camille Kennedy thank you for keeping the light on every time we were away from home ( it hurts to say goodbye). To the newly appointed Hall of famer MG Gibbs you've opened another door for us and we are truly thankful and appreciate everything you've done for MCW PRODUCTIONS. And last but not least our beautiful host Allan Border, words like legend and icon are synonymous with you however I'd like to add the words true gentlemen to the mix. To my very special people Michael Hoogzard Charlee Hulford, we did it, we bloody did it. To our show partners thank you for staying with us in one of the hardest years we've ever endured. If I've forgotten anyone I'm sorry however thank you to all involved. Kind Regards Jason Kennedy

  • As we embark on another series of Dipper's Backyard BBQ Wars commencing this Friday at 2pm on 7mate, I must once again thank all involved with the production. Firstly Robert Dipierdomenico you are a superstar with your research and the way you bring the team together I can see why you won 5 premierships and a Brownlow. Secondly to the 7 BBQers and the 4 home brewers, WOW you guys nailed it and I know that Australia will love your food and beers. Thirdly to Mr. Hollywood/Bollywood Ben Mix you're the cornerstone of every MCW production and the benchmark for any budding cameraman/editor and now a true friend. And finally Charlee Hulford & Michael Hoogzard the A -Team behind MCW Productions, you guys see first hand that it's full noise all the time, however you've stayed with the plan and I can't thank you two enough and congratulations on another Australian TV first with this concept. I'm a very lucky man and count my blessings daily to have all the above and a family which gives me carte blanche to produce shows for everyone to enjoy (hopefully)xx
