This insightful package of programmes features two documentaries about Tasmania, traversing its unique and verdant landscape and taking into account significant historical events that have helped shape the state and make it one of Australia's most picturesque attractions.
Tasmania: Its History, Its Heritage is a 65 minute programme exploring the detailed tapestry of Australia's Apple Isle. Produced by Peter Richman in consultation with The National Trust, it celebrates a rich architectural legacy inherited from the colony's early settlers and presents a charming vision of the past. Depicting not only the grand homes and public buildings of the cities, it also shows workers' cottages and cabins of the outlying settlements of early pioneers.
Narrated by John Stanton, The Ghosts of Port Arthur is a dramatised account and detailed investigation into the many sightings and experiences of the supernatural at Tasmania's notorious former penal settlement, where almost every building is believed to have at least one spirit.
This is a Region 4 disc, the local region for Australia.
