Area stars in TV series
Thursday, 20th May, 2010
The arid country around Broken Hill will feature in a new TV show starting in July.
The show "Miracles" contrasts the visual beauty of the Broken Hill region with a "brutal journey of survival".
The three-part series includes three titles: Miracle in the Storm, Miracle in the Desert and Miracle in the Jungle.
Miracle in the Desert was filmed locally in April last year.
Each episode tells the story of one person's fight against the elements, against time and against death.
City Council's General Manager, Frank Zaknich, commended the Film Broken Hill (FBH) team for the support they gave the cast and crew during their filming.
"Film Broken Hill provided a number of services to the company, ensuring that they had access appropriate information and locations during the pre and post filming stages. The organisation has an excellent record in providing support services to the film industry," Mr Zaknich said.
Film BH is a joint initiative of the Far Western Regional Development Board, the NSW Department of State and Regional Development, City Council and local freelance technicians.
The organisation works with local authorities, technicians and the NSW Film & Television Office.
FBH provides an information and referral service to filmmakers and commercial photographers about all aspects of shooting in Far Western NSW.
