  • VIDEO PRODUCTION for Fortress Newcastle  View Printable Version  
    Friday, August 20 2021 @ 11:10 PM
    Contributed by: bobcook

    Fortress Newcastle video Production is progressing rapidly.
    A documentary of the important role that Newcastle industries served in production for the war effort, is being told by those who lived through it. We are interviewing everyone we can find who lived in Newcastle during WWII.
    Please contact NIHA if you know anyone that could contribute to this production.

    The initial production involves video recording interviews, which will form the storyline of this important documentary. Approximately 20 interviews are expected to be conducted.
    Many of the 17 persons interviewed so far are over 90 years old.
    Research is almost completed for the exhibition and website components of the project. We will be advising launch date soon, for a large exhibition to be held early in 2022.

    Our important Fortress Newcastle Project was also featured.
    Our friends at William the Fourth were also featured. This was a great example of all of our groups working together to support each other.

    Continuing our research into the elements of Fortress Newcastle, members of several groups inspected the LARGS-PATERSON Artillery Range at Tocal.
    The massive concrete Observation Post looked out over the range where artillery testing and training took place.
    Under the expert guidance of historian Cameron Archer, we also studied the Tocal Agricultural Centre's collection of remnant munitions.
