This is a Conversation we need to have!

By May 15, 2020News

Remember the fires that wiped out the village of Dunalley in southern Tasmania and this iconic picture that went global? Not to forget the horrifying images of families waiting on the Gippsland beaches as the firefront approached last summer.

That’s Tammy Holmes and her five grandchildren in the pic – and she and her husband Tim will be on the panel this Saturday afternoon at 4.30pm. So watch Wilder than Wild and Zoom in using this link to hear their stories and share the wisdom of David Bowman, Director of the Fire Centre Research Hub and  Kevin White, the filmmaker and witness to the California mega-fires. This is a conversation we need to have!

On a happier note, send your top 5  BOFA flix with a snappy note about what took your fancy. The best 5 entries from around Australia win a premium pack of Tamar Valley Truffles products or a bottle of award winning 42degreeS wine. Draw is midnight Tuesday 19 May so get composing!
