Bindi hosts TV special about dad

Bindi IrwinCrocodile Hunter Steve Irwin’s daughter Bindi will commemorate the anniversary of her father’s death by hosting a one-hour program on the Nine Network. Bindi, nine, will host My Daddy The Crocodile Hunter on September 1, airing unseen home videos and talking about her unique childhood with the world famous showman and wildlife campaigner. Since her father’s death, Bindi has become a star in her own right with a hit live tour, TV show and DVD release. The TV special will be her prime-time TV debut and will include her working with her father on his last research trip before he was fatally speared by a stingray at Batt Reef, in far north Queensland. On September 3, the eve of the anniversary of Irwin’s death, Nine will also air the program Secrets of the Crocodile. This hour-long program hosted and narrated by Irwin’s widow Terri, will feature Irwin on his final adventure involving crocodiles through northern Australia’s Cape York Peninsula. For this program, after tracking the movements of crocodiles from space using satellite transmitters, Irwin attached cameras to crocodiles to better understand their behavior underwater. Despite the high profile TV appearances, Terri, Bindi and her three-year-old brother Robert will be on a camping trip for the anniversary. Their Sunshine Coast wildlife sanctuary Australia Zoo, founded by Irwin, will be open but a spokeswoman for the family said efforts would be made to keep the day a “low-key” affair.
