Production is underway on the fourth season of Coast Australia for the History channel.
Neil Oliver will again showcase a different strip of Australia’s coastline, and stories about the history, the people, the archaeology, the geography and the marine life of each region.
Returning are palaeontologist Professor Tim Flannery, historian Dr Alice Garner, marine ecologist Professor Emma Johnston and marine biologist, Dr Dean Miller.
Also joining this season is archaeologist, anthropologist and founder of the Australian Indigenous Archaeologist Association, Dave Johnston, who has worked as an archaeologist in Australia since 1990 and during that time has completed over 2000 archaeological and Indigenous heritage projects.
The regions explored across each state this season include: Sydney Harbour, the west coast of Tasmania, the Great Australian Bight, Melbourne and Port Phillip Bay, Bunbury to Geraldton in Western Australia, Cocos and Christmas Island, Cooktown to Karumba in Queensland and Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory.
Foxtel’s General Manager of Entertainment and Factual Channels, Jim Buchan said “It’s incredibly exciting to be bringing a fourth season of Coast Australia to our audience, who’ve demonstrated over the past three seasons how they simply can’t get enough of this spectacular series. The show gives us a fantastic opportunity to capture untold Australian history in an accessible, contemporary way while also exploring our rich, diverse and stunning landscape.”
Coast Australia is commissioned by Foxtel and produced by Great Southern Film and Television, with the format licensed from BBC Worldwide ANZ. It is based on the BAFTA Award-winning BBC series Coast, which has been broadcast in the UK and internationally for the past twelve years.
Season four will air in early 2019.
