Above: W-Class Melbourne Tram
other local icon is closer to the hearts and minds of Melbournians than its trams?
Australia's other capital cities Melbourne fought to maintain its tramways system
after World War II.
I am delighted to announce in response to public demand, and to celebrate the tenth anniversary of its original release on VHS, Tram People Down Under has at last been digitally re-edited and restored from its original analogue master tapes.
With new digital titles and updated soundtrack it's now back for viewing on DVD.
Tram People Down Under was originally released
as a 165-minute three-part video documentary on VHS video entitled "Tram
People" in 1999.
You can now purchase the three DVD-R set of Tram
People Down Under here exclusively and directly from the
producer from our TPDU e-Shop using Pay Pal. See the link below:
Please note: I wish to thank Melbourne's tram people for allowing me to
record video interviews with them in 1999 and for giving me permission to utilise
their stills and video footage in this production.
is an interesting addendum that copies of the master tapes of Tram
People Down Under have now been preserved
and are held for posterity by the National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra.
I would like to acknowledge and thank the staff at the NSFA for their work. -
A special six-part "Tram People Down Under"
TV series was screened on Community
TV Channel 31 April-May 2010.
