,,,,,,,,,,,,,,well sort of
A week or so ago, I wrote, and sent, an e-mail to our/my ABC; that’s not to be confused with the Yankee variety, who way back in 1973/74, sent a crew to film Shay Gap; I’m pretty sure I’ve written about that, if I haven’t then that’s something else you/y’all have missed out on; asking if they still have this in there archives, and if so, could I get a copy.
This afternoon I received a very nice e-mail from M/s Libby Bramble, Audience Support, advising me that they have not been able to find that which I am referring to but pointed me in the direction of a film called “Outback” which featured a short film entitled “Living Way Out”.
But you already know it’s way out, don’t you? If you don’t, you haven’t been paying attention as you should!
M/s Bramble kindly included a link to a ‘YouTube’ called Living Way Out (A film about Shay Gap); which runs for a little under 12 minutes.
I do believe that there is quite a lot that will not interest you that much, at around 2½ minutes we get to Shay, at 4 minutes there’s the genius/bloke who came up with the idea and got the town built.
When I saw the shovel shovelling, and the Haulpak’s hauling, I thought of a couple more posts that I may well write.
This film was produced in 1976, quite a while after I’d departed and I didn’t recognize anybody in this short film.
Come to think of it, ’76 was the year The War Office took over, domesticated me, or some other word, that will incur her wrath should I have the courage to write it!
