Next Episode of Double Trouble (AU) is
Double Trouble revolves around twins separated at birth.
Double Trouble is a thirteen by half hour children's television drama series, produced by CAAMA, the Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association, an Alice Springs, central Australian-based production company.
The show is a lighthearted comedy drama about long separated twins meeting up and switching places. The story's of a kind familiar to viewers who remember The Parent Trap and a host of other 'twins' shows, here given a refreshing twist by the contrast of central Australian Indigenous community lifestyles with life in the big city of Sydney.
'Double Trouble' is a very common term for twins. Everybody uses it. Some people talk about double the pleasure, a lot more talk about double the trouble when twins hover into view. So it seemed the only appropriate title for a show about twins. An old theme, here given an
amusing and fresh variation that takes us from the heart of the bush to the big smoke, from Alice Springs to Sydney.
Kids are fascinated by twins. The idea of having a double. Another half. They fantasize about the possibilities and dream of it maybe coming true. Maybe they have a secret twin somewhere. Twins have their own peculiarities. Twins are special. Twins look alike. Twins think alike. Twins know what the other is thinking. Even if they're separated, they share an invisible bond, and that connection is at the heart of Double Trouble.
This series is a fast moving comedy drama, loaded with complicated situations and ever changing panics, improbabilities and problems to be solved. It has plenty of bush scenes, plenty of city life, some bush tucker, some painting, some dancing, modern and traditional, some football, and two families bemused by the strange ways of the swapped twins who've landed in their new homes.
It's also a story of different cultures. The white and the black. The city and the bush. Traditional ways of life and modern day thinking. It's a chance to explore Aboriginal culture without it being a tourist oddity. It is about people living their lives. It is about being exposed to a new and very different culture and having to cope.
