Germaine Greer's first home was in Melbourne's Sandringham, a place she doesn't remember with fondness. But having come to the UK in 1964, she shows Julia through her haunts in her now home, Cambridge.

In this warm and witty episode of Home Delivery, Julia travels to the Northern Territory to meet Miranda Tapsell in the heart of the glorious Kakadu National Park. As an only child growing up in the tiny town of Jabiru, Miranda tells that she was regularly “subjected to bushwalking”. She developed a love of performing from a very young age, and joined the Jabiru Tappers at age six, and delighted her parents with an endless series of plays starring her friends and stuffed toys.

They visit Jabiru Area School, where Miranda recalls that a visit by Aaron Pedersen ignited a dream of taking up a career as an actor. She also relates that a troubling episode of racial bullying shattered her carefree childhood.

The family moved to Darwin for the final years of Miranda’s schooling, so she and Julia take a road trip to the big smoke. They visit Darwin High School where Miranda performed in plays and musicals in the school’s astonishing amphitheatre.

It was here that Miranda seriously started to plan an acting career. She tells Julia about attending summer courses at NIDA and seeing a stage performance of the Sapphires. From that moment on Miranda wanted nothing more than to be a ‘Sapphire’.

On a headland overlooking the beautiful Mindil Beach, Julia and Miranda talk about her courageous acceptance speech at the 2015 Logie awards, when Miranda challenged the Australian television industry to put more people of colour on our screens, and they reflect on her journey from a small Kakadu town to the red carpet at Cannes.

She may have been the greatest monarch that ever ruled England but from her very first breath to the day she died, Elizabeth was surrounded by enemies who threatened her crown and her life. In this episode, we see Elizabeth I crowned and battling to keep her crown and country together through 25 turbulent years. Although Elizabeth I would become one of Britain's most remarkable monarchs, her reign was never secure. From the moment she was anointed queen her enemies at home and abroad began to move against her. To foreign rivals she was a heretic and a bastard. At home her government was desperate to marry her off, to a man who could rule and provide the nation with an heir. Up in Scotland, her Catholic cousin Mary Queen of Scots had married and given birth to a boy - and rumour swirled that she was set to steal Elizabeth's crown. Soon, shocking scandals of adultery and murder swamped Mary, her marriage crumbled, and she fled to England desperate for her cousin's protection. But her claim to the English throne made her a threat to Elizabeth who had no choice but to imprison her. For 18 years Mary languished in jail while Elizabeth's enemies wanted her dead. It wasn't until Elizabeth's spymaster Sir Francis Walsingham had concrete proof that her life and her throne were at risk, that Elizabeth reluctantly put her cousin to death. But, just as she feared, Mary's execution inflamed her enemies and triggered the greatest threat of all: invasion.
