The new Peter Brock Telemovie is shaping up to be a good one. According to this article the attention to detail has been extraordinary with eight replicas of Brock’s original race cars. Brock’s long term partner originally slammed the production even before the script was written. It seems she has had greater involvement with the production now and is satisfied that the story is authentic.
Loads of MCTV Extras and Actors have been working all over Sydney from St Ives to Windsor and even up to Gosford over the past few weeks. MCTV talent were doing their bit to keep the production authentic by auditioning with hair styles from various time periods from the 60’s through to the 80’s.
The production is expected to air in September next year marking the 10 year anniversary of Brocky’s fatal accident. It’s a while to wait, but by all accounts it will be worth it.
The attention to detail so far has been extraordinary with eight replicas of Brock’s original race cars driven down from the tribute museum in Yeppoon, Queensland, which he helped curate before his death.
