The show Baywatch has commanded
audiences for years, its concept was
simple and entertaining. Its successor
has followed suit consisting of
Californian actors as lifeguards
saving lives on an Australian beach.
But since the shows creation, there
has been as much, if not more drama
behind the camera as there is in front
of it. Unfortunately the makers of
Baywatch never asked the residents of
Sydney's Avalon beach to share their
beloved property and learned one of
life's most valuable lessons: never
mess with a surfer's turf. Producer Nick Franklin of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation shows, BAYWATCH
UNPLUGGED reveals how a divided
community overthrew Hollywood and
survived each other.
Baywatch Unplugged was produced by Nick Franklin. The sound
engineer was John Jacobs. This program aired as part of
the international documentary exchange series Crossing
