A broadcast date has been announced for the much anticipated episode of Coast Australia Season 3 featuring Newcastle’s early convict coals mines and Stockton Bight’s majestic natural beauty.
Those of you lucky enough to have Foxtel & the History Channel will be able to see Newcastle and Stockton’s early history star in the Hawkesbury – Lord Howe NSW Episode 2 of Coast Australia Season 3 which will screen January 16th 2017 at 7.30pm.
An alert posted on Facebook yesterday, was shared through the Lost Newcastle group (with over 29,333 members). Overnight it reached over 9,400 people and was on shared 50 times.
For those of us who don’t have Foxtel or the History Channel, a call out was made yesterday afternoon for a local pub to host a screening, and as a result, a local pub and brewery, Foghorn Brewhouse in King Street Newcastle, will open its doors next Monday (January 16th) night for people to watch the Newcastle and Stockton show live there. Please RSVP to the following FB Event if you wish to attend the pub screening: https://www.facebook.com/events/364332540596704/
So there is great excitement from our neck of the woods!
It was shot in Newcastle and Stockton back in April 2016, and the production crew as well as presenter were wonderful people to work with, and the promos look great. Our backgrounder prepared for their production crew is here: https://hunterlivinghistories.com/2016/04/15/convict-mines/
The first episode of the new series screened last night. http://www.historychannel.com.au/…/coast-australia-season-3/
