Highlight: Mega Truckers, A&E, 7.30pm

YOUNG Queensland trucking magnate Jon Kelly talks the talk, but does he walk the walk? He's good at threatening his staff - ''If you f--- up, if anything goes wrong, I will burn your f---ing house down'' - but can he cut it when it comes to hauling the super-heavy wide loads that have made him millions?

Tonight we find out. With too much business and not enough drivers, Kelly has to get out from the desk and haul a 115-tonne bulldozer the 820 kilometres from Toowoomba to a Blackwater coalmine. The bulldozer is so big that it's usually transported in four parts, but the mine wants it in one piece. Truck and dozer together are seven metres wide, 5½ metres high and weigh nearly 200 tonnes, and Kelly has to contend with narrow roads and police curfews on a tight deadline.

Kelly is a natural TV talent who is good at explaining things. A heavy truck crawling uphill, he explains, can rip up a sun-softened road and ''spit that bitumen out in chunks the size of family pizzas''. Back at base, Kelly's employees set to grousing when he rehires an unpopular driver he had sacked.

It's great to see that the one-off doco succeeded in spawning a series. Mega Truckers might not be as life-and-death as Deadliest Catch or Abalone Wars, but it's as interesting and well made as any blue-collar reality show on the box.
