Coming to Stan this summer

The Gloaming

When an unidentified woman is found brutally murdered, Detective Molly McGee (Emma Booth) must team up with Alex O’Connell (Ewen Leslie), a fellow cop with whom she shares a tragic past to solve the crime.

Australian streaming service, Stan has commissioned “The Gloaming,” as an 8-part drama series created by Victoria Madden (“The Kettering Incident”.) Disney’s ABC Studios will handle international distribution.

Pitched by Stan as “genre-bending,” the series follows an unorthodox and troubled female cop who leads an investigation into the murder of an unidentified woman. To solve the case, she has to team up with a man she has not spoken to in twenty years. They discover that the murder has links to a case from the past and what begins as a routine investigation exposes something more insidious.

The series is shot in Tasmania, against the backdrop of Tasmania’s capital city Hobart and brooding outdoor locations. It will premiere on Stan in 2019.

“The Gloaming” will be produced by Australian companies Sweet Potato Films and 2 Jons, in association with Mushroom Pictures. Producer credits go to John Molloy, Victoria Madden, Fiona McConaghy. Executive producers are Keli Lee, Rob Gibson, Nick Forward ,Jon Adgemis, and Michael Gudinski.

“Partnering with Disney’s ABC Studios International, the scale and scope of this production has rarely, if ever, been seen in Australia before,” said Nick Forward, Stan’s chief content officer in a prepared statement.

The company appears to be surviving as the only serious rival to Netflix in the Australian OTT sector. After earlier consolidations, Dendy announced in April that it was closing its Dendy Direct VoD service.

Other Stan Originals include “No Activity,” with its US adaptation produced by Will Ferrell’s production company Funny Or Die, which has been renewed for a second season; and two film to TV adaptations, “Wolf Creek” and “Romper Stomper".

Death or Liberty

DEATH or LIBERTY - Multi-Cinema, DVD and Television versions
The story of the political prisoners exiled to the Australian colonies as convicts in the late 18th and 19th Centuries. Their legacy is inspirational. Liberalism, republicanism, trade unionism, working class politics, democracy, responsible government… all arrived in the colonies shackled in chains.

This fine documentary imaginatively examines the way a national psychology, preserved in songs and poems, was developed in a new country of grating rawness, emptiness and class inequality by pioneering political prisoners, their democratic spirit in direct, sometimes violent, opposition to the English military class that ruled them under the dark shadow of the convict system.

                                                                                                                    At Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and new Hospital

You will see a number of species that are sadly now extinct everywhere but Tasmania. They include the Tasmanian devil, the Eastern quoll and the shy Tasmanian bettong.  These three marsupial species have made their last stand Tasmania and, sadly, other marsupials are at risk of joining that list.

Australia has the highest number of mammal extinctions in the past 200 years and at Bonorong we are determined to ensure these animals do not join that list. As well as these animals you will see everything from possums to potoroos, emus to echidnas, the agile spotted-tailed quoll and orphaned wombats. The focus is our wonderful natives.

All our animals are here for a reason and our number one aim is to see them back in the bush and to prevent them arriving at our door in the first place. Come and learn how you can help! Read our wildlife rescue page to find out how you can be involved in caring for these animals, maybe even becoming a wildlife rescuer or carer yourself.

ASMANIA’S first wildlife hospital has opened after years of fundraising. 

Visitors to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary will be able to watch veterinary procedures.

Bonorong Wildlife Hospital will be open two days a week and help injured and orphaned wildlife.

Wildlife carers can book appointments and pay only the cost of consumables, such as medication, said Bonorong owner Greg Irons.

“This facility has been a dream for a long time and it’s great to see it finally coming together,” he said.

“We greatly appreciate the support of veterinary clinics around the state for treating wildlife in between their other patients. However, it’s not an ideal situation for native wildlife to be near dogs and cats — their natural predators.

“Our dedicated facility will be used for the exclusive treatment of wildlife.”

Dr Alex Kreiss is in the new surgery facility.

The hospital is subsidised by visitors and donations to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary.

“The aim is to have a seven-day-a-week operation,” Mr Irons said.

The hospital will be staffed by Alex Kreiss and Mr Irons hopes another vet will be hired to extend its hours of operation soon.

“Bonorong will still continue to work with other vets to care for wildlife around the state as needed,” Dr Kreiss said.

“However this new facility will help with the workload, and provide the time for the treatment of animals requiring longer term care, as well as research into many different areas such as diseases facing Tasmania’s unique wildlife.”

Visitors to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary will be able to watch veterinary procedures, when appropriate, through one-way glass from a viewing platform.

“I’ve always said that if people were to see even a small portion of what our staff, rescuers and veterinarians saw every day — the aftermath of people’s actions — they would undoubtedly change what they do in their everyday lives,” said Mr Irons.
