Back Roads

NewsMail - - LIFE -

ABC, 8pm

The han­ker­ing for a good ol’ Aussie story hasn’t waned. Who would have thought that a lan­guid show ex­plor­ing the lives of peo­ple in re­mote towns would be­come one of the most watched? While pre­sen­ter Heather Ewart’s neigh­bourly man­ner is key to Back Roads’ suc­cess, it is per­haps city folks’ fas­ci­na­tion with coun­try liv­ing that has struck a chord. Tonight, Heather trav­els to Pine Creek, a pi­o­neer­ing out­back town in the North­ern Ter­ri­tory. Built on the gold rush of the 1870s, th­ese days things are sadly look­ing a lit­tle more bust. But as Heather looks be­neath the sur­face, hope blooms. Pine Creek has many sto­ries to tell.
