Look Ma, We’re On TV


I don’t watch a lot of TV really so I missed the announcement late last year that the ABC will be screening a new Australian comedy series in late 2016 which will be filmed mostly in Tasmania. If I’d heard about it I’d have been pleased because I like shows set in pretty towns with quirky locals, even more so if they are Australian. I adored “SeaChange” and I liked “Something In The Air” and other similar shows.

What makes this news most exciting though is that this new series will be filmed in our own pretty town of Geeveston with our own quirky locals hopefully as extras. They can pencil me in as a viewer right now. Apparently filming is to begin late next month so I hope that I will be able to photograph the main street transformed into Rosehaven and blog about some of the filming if I am lucky enough to see any of it.

I’ve said for a long time that Geeveston has one of the prettiest and most interesting main streets in Tasmania. Now the rest of you get to see what I mean.

Taswegian1957

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
