The Warrandyte Diary, December 2013
Peter Hitchener and the Nine News crew snuck into Warrandyte last month to film a bushfire safety message ahead of summer.
They spent part of the day at one of Warrandyte’s reserves near the river, filming a brief video that is expected to air before the end of the year.
“We want to make sure people are careful and prepared for summer. It’s really important that everybody spreads the message so we can avoid another tragedy like the one that occurred on Black Saturday,” Peter told the Diary.
Unfortunately, the Nine team was forced into a few takes – they weren’t expecting Yarra St to have an endless stream of noisy trucks and buses from the minute they started recording.
Peter, who is mentoring Diary reporter Brianna Piazza for the Warrandyte Youth Arts Award, said he loved Warrandyte for its beauty and is looking forward to his next visit.
