by Panorama Australia

Video

1 of 1 copy available

A visually descriptive 30 minute program portraying'Broome' a spectacular destination, situated in the North West coast of Western Australia. A tropical resort town, founded initially in 1883. It is an incredibly wild and beautiful corner of Western Australia. Broome was once the prosperous and bustling centre of the pearling industry. Broome stands on Roebuck Bay and is still a pearling town but not in the scale of years gone by. In its hey day there were some 350 pearling luggers employing 3,000 men working out of Broome. Divers went to depths of 27 meters and this resulted in many deaths. There was a predominant amount of Japanese divers and the Japanese Cemetery shows how they suffered. There are many signs of the Pearling background of Broome with abandoned Luggers and Museums. We take you to Gantheaume Point, where dinosaur's tracks are embedded in sandstone at the base of the cliffs and it is commonly believed they lived 130 million years ago. The tracks are visible only at a low spring tide. The essence of this destination is captured at Cable Beach, where the sands seem to go on forever and at certain times of the year the moon creates a stairway to heaven, a spectacular sight captured by our cameras. We bring the unique'Sun Picture Theatre in the heart of Broome - an open air Picture Theatre and the Bird Observatory set amongst the mangroves where an abundance of Birdlife revel in the peaceful and tranquil setting. Containing so much history and beauty this program is a must see in the scheme of the Panorama Australia series of programs. And is the first of the'Town' programs of Australia. Panorama Australia, world - renowned film makers present a series of magnificent programs that are a wonderful addition to every library worldwide. The programs are produced for the home viewer, whether it is in an armchair traveling situation or as the perfect tool to plan a trip, or as an insight educationally into the Australian landscape and flora and fauna. They are utilized frequently for schools and colleges also. Our series of programs have no up front talking head, they are all narrated with the music composed specifically for the pictures and performed for each production, lending themselves too many purposes and enhancing each title exclusively. The pictures are beautiful and of a very high exacting standard, the scripts are informative, interesting and presented with great sensitivity to subject matter. Australia is a land so diverse and the Panorama Camera's have captured it all and transport you on a wonderful journey. The natural scenic beauty is apparent in each title and on watching each of the programs the content provides times of pleasure to a world audience.
