Series Family Confidential ; Series 2, Episode 1
Summary Family Confidential returns for its second season, inviting you into the homes of six of Australia's most powerful and intriguing families, including The Nolls (singer Shannon and family), The Courtenays (of author Bryce Courtenay), The Dingos (actor Ernie, wife Sally), The Holmes a Courts (billionaire widow Janet and sons Peter and Paul), The Jacobsens (entertainment legend Kevin) and The Casellas (founders of Australia's wealthiest family wine company with the Yellow Tail label). Shannon Noll, a multi-platinum recording artist, shot to fame in 2003 as the runner-up on the first series of Australian Idol. In just eight years, Shannon had ten consecutive Top Ten singles in the ARIA charts - the only artist in Australia ever to do so - and, now with sales in the millions, he's one of Australia's top-selling performers. Yet Shannon's success hides a family tragedy. Shannon grew up on the family's 100-year-old farm, in Condobolin NSW, with his two older brothers, Damian and Adam. The brothers never doubted they would inherit the farm - after all, the Nolls had been farming for five generations. They worked the land by day and entertained crowds by night, performing in their rock and roll cover band in country pubs - Shannon singing, Damian on drums and Adam on guitar. Then a freak accident in 2001, which killed their beloved father, catapulted the Noll brothers into a series of events that would define them as men. The brothers had a 4,500 acre farm teetering near bankruptcy, and worse, they faced a drought of biblical proportions. The pressure brought out the worst. Without their father to guide them, physical fights and bloodshed replaced the brothers' once tight sibling relationships. As Shannon's career took off, he was forced to drop his brothers from his band. But in a new twist of chance Adam and Damian have found their own musical voice and have recently been discovered by the business manager of the Wiggles, who is keen to launch them as country music's next big thing.
