Back Roads

NewsMail - - TV GUIDE -

ABC, 8pm

If there’s any proof that we should spend more time dis­cov­er­ing the small towns of Aus­tralia, Back Roads is it. The beauty of this unique series is that you won’t find the in­spi­ra­tional sto­ries and com­pelling per­son­al­i­ties in any guide book – host Heather Ewart (pic­tured) mostly re­lies on word of mouth to lead her to the small towns she pro­files. Tonight, she trav­els to the his­toric Vic­to­rian bor­ough of Beau­fort, half­way be­tween Ararat and Bal­larat. An invit­ing mix of old and new, the town is brain­storm­ing new ideas to keep their home on the map – their main street is about to be much less busy af­ter a by­pass is con­structed.
