MIDNIGHT OIL’S ‘OILS AT THE REEF’ PREMIERES EXCLUSIVELY ON MAX

MEDIA RELEASE: TUESDAY OCTOBER 17, 2017

MIDNIGHT OIL’S

‘OILS AT THE REEF’

PREMIERES EXCLUSIVELY ON MAX

Oils at the Reef, a one-off concert performed by Aussie music legends Midnight Oil, will premiere on MAX on Saturday, November 11 at midday.

The intimate and exclusive benefit gig for fans was recorded live in Cairns at the Tank Arts Centre earlier this month to create awareness of the current state of the Great Barrier Reef. All funds raised from the benefit were donated directly to Great Barrier Reef Legacy and the Australian Marine Conservation Society.

Peter Garrett, lead singer from Midnight Oil, told the audience: “We want to explain to people that there are strong scientific, economic, moral and environmental reasons why Australia should put protecting the Great Barrier Reef (first). Reducing greenhouse gas emissions that are heating up the planet and not opening any more massive, giant coal mines is the most important thing that we can do.”

MAX’s exclusive, 90-minute broadcast of the concert will feature hits like Blue Sky Mine and US Forces and will also be an opportunity for Oils fans to see the band perform lesser known and more obscure songs including Surfin’ With A Spoon and Koala Sprint, making it a rare showcase that every Oil fan will want to see.

Fraser Stark, Group Channel Manager of Foxtel’s Arts & Music channels, said: “It was a privilege to be part of the audience when Midnight Oil performed their unique and intimate gig, ‘Oils at the Reef’. The room was full with very appreciative fans, and MAX was there to capture it all. For the channel, it was an honour to have such iconic performers take the time to include us in the band’s ongoing mission for goodness. We are very much looking forward to sharing the Oils’ message of reef preservation, and their great music, with our viewers next month. ”

Oils at the Reef will premiere on MAX on Saturday, November 11 at midday, and again at 5.00pm later that afternoon. Encore screenings of the concert will also air on Sunday 12th November at 10.00am, 3.00pm and 8.00pm.

The video on demand service, backed by UK broadcaster Channel 4, will deliver top rated, exclusive and original first run drama series from around the world to Foxtel and Foxtel Now customers with an appetite for quality TV content, and is the second stage in a planned Walter Presents global roll-out.

Walter Presents is named after its curator and host Walter Iuzzolino, a passionate drama fan who hand picks each show and never uses computer algorithms to select titles.

The collaboration will see Walter Presents series premiere on Foxtel’s On Demand service from November 1 and then from December 15, the drama channel Showcase will have a Friday night Walter Presents slot to feature some series. New release Walter Presents dramas will be added every month.

From Nordic thrillers to South American chillers, every series will feature bespoke high-quality customized sub-titling. Each season will be made available in its entirety allowing viewers to binge watch the content.

The three series for the Australian launch of Walter Presents in November are:

Locked Up:

Set in a high security women’s prison, this is a rollercoaster Spanish thriller simmering with tension, sex and violence which quickly became a smash hit in the UK.

Other series coming up are a selection of multi-award winning productions from HBO Latin America, including Emmy nominated action thriller Fugitives, and Mexican family crime saga Mr Avila, plus the dark brooding psychological Belgian thriller 13 Commandments.

Co-founder and curator of Walter Presents Walter Iuzzolino said: “We’re proud to be partnering with Foxtel, Australia’s most prestigious home of premium scripted series. Australian audiences are some of the most forward thinking and sophisticated in the world. They have a hunger for compelling, quality international drama as demonstrated by the success of Nordic Noir here and we are thrilled to be able to broaden the scope and palette of the international drama offerings further with additions from countries as diverse as Mexico, Holland, Chile, Spain and Belgium.”

Foxtel Director of Content Ross Crowley said: “Walter Presents brings an entirely new element to the Foxtel entertainment experience. Australia has one of the richest and most diverse audiences in the world, with many speaking languages other than English at home. In teaming with master curator Walter Iuzzolino, we’re genuinely excited to bring some of the boldest, most exciting, premium dramas from around the world to our On Demand catalogue.”

Walter Presents launched in the UK on Channel 4’s on-demand service All 4 in January 2016. Since then the service, uniquely curated by Walter, has garnered rave reviews and millions of views to a broad range of high-quality foreign language TV drama.

From November 1 in Australia, Walter Presents will be available On Demand to Foxtel customers who subscribe to the Movies and Drama packs and to Foxtel Now customers via the Movie, Pop and Drama packs.

A PLACE TO CALL HOME
Season 5
on Showcase and Foxtel Now
Starts Sunday, October 8 at 7.30pm.

L-R Back – Craig Hall as Jack, Abby Earl as Anna, Arianwen Parkes-Lockwood as Olivia, David Berry as James, Tim Draxl as Henry, Jenni Baird as Regina, Deborah Kennedy as Doris, Frankie J Holden as Roy.
L_R Front – Sara Wiseman as Carolyn, Noni Hazlehurst as Elizabeth, Marta Dusseldorp as Sarah and Brett Climo as George.

Foxtel announced today that its hit Australian drama series A Place to Call Home will now air at 7.30pm AEDT, on Sunday October 8.

Honoured at the 2017 TV WEEK Logie Awards as Most Outstanding Drama Series, the Australian period showpiece A Place to Call Home will return for its fifth season on Foxtel’s showcase channel and streaming on Foxtel Now.

The new season will jump to 1958, where four years have passed since we left Sarah (Marta Dusseldorp) and the Bligh family. Those years have seen ever-increasing changes in Australian society. The world of wealth and privilege is being eroded, moral values are fraying and a new young generation is rising, full of disaffection with the world of their elders. To them the War is a matter of the dead past, bringing conflict with those who suffered its pain and deprivation. Economic change and the devious actions of unseen enemies threaten Ash Park and, in the midst of the turmoil, love becomes the only sure place anyone can call home.

As the 1950s come to a close, Australia – just as the rest of the world – stands on the cusp of great change. While pastoral families like the Blighs have long farewelled the early ’50s golden era when Australia ‘rode on the sheep’s back’, 1958 brings notable milestones: Qantas Airways introduces a round-the-world air service from Australia to London, Anzac Day (25 April) becomes a national public holiday, Johnny O’Keefe releases his first hit with Wild One, and with it Australian rock and roll is born, the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) opens in Sydney, the first Australian federal election is televised, and a young Brian Henderson hosts the first episode of Bandstand.

The exceptional cast features AACTA award winner Marta Dusseldorp (Sarah) and Hall of Fame TV WEEK Logie Award winner Noni Hazlehurst (Elizabeth) along with Brett Climo (George), Abby Earl (Anna), Craig Hall (Dr Jack), Frankie J Holden (Roy), Sara Wiseman (Carolyn), Jenni Baird (Regina), David Berry (James), Arianwen Parkes-Lockwood (Olivia), Deborah Kennedy (Doris), Tim Draxl (Dr Fox), Mark Lee (Sir Richard), Robert Coleby (Douglas) and with returning guest favourite Martin Sacks (Isaac Gold).

New guest cast will include established and respected actors Aaron Pedersen (Jack Irish/Goldstone), Matt Day (Rake/Tangle), Huw Higginson (Secret City/The Bill)

Season five will also feature up and coming new talent including Madeleine Clunies–Ross (Tomorrow When The War Began) and introduce WAAPA graduate George Pullar.

As a prelude to the new season, tune in on Sunday, October 1 at 8.30pm AEDT to the special A Place To Call Home – The Story So Far to look back at the much-loved drama and take an exclusive look at the new season.

A Place to Call Home Season 5 will screen Sundays from October 8, at 7.30pm AEDT, on showcase and will be available to watch from Foxtel’s on demand library, or streamed on demand on Foxtel’s streaming service Foxtel Now.
