ABC summer series Back Roads will be back in the final week of November and is planning a live radio broadcast event in Yackandandah, south of Albury / Wodonga.
Presenter Heather Ewart will attend the broadcast from Yackandandah’s High Street and launch a new Back Roads digital initiative that is inviting submissions from across regional Australia.
Back Roads returns to ABC on Monday November 28.
Back Roads Digital project
We know there are many more regional back roads and entertaining local characters than can fit into the new season of the program, so we’re putting the callout to all regional communities to show us the best places and people from where they live by contributing to the new user-generated-content initiative ‘My Back Roads’.
To share a story about where they live, audiences just need to take a photo or make a short video about a local place or unique face and publish it on the Back Roads website (or simply add the hashtag #backroads to their photos on Instagram). The collection of ‘My Back Roads’ stories will be available on the Back Roads website and via social media for everyone to enjoy.
Save the Date: Back To Yack. 3-10:30pm. Friday 25th November 2016, Yackandandah VIC. No ticket required, all welcome.
