bondi forever: the documentary
A word from Terry Jenkins.
I am pleased to advise that the Distribution of the “BONDI FOREVER” Documentary has progressed with big steps and the prime time public broadcast dates in Australia and New Zealand are as follows on the FOX/NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC DOCUMENTARY CHANNEL :
PREMIERE – Sunday 18 November at 7.30 pm.
REPEATS — Tuesday 20 November at9.30 pm ; Tuesday 27 November at 3.30 pm ; Thursday 29 November at 8.30 pm.
There will be scattered repeats outside prime time during November and there will be further scheduling for December with dates to be confirmed.
To date there have been broadcasts throughout Asia and the last count confirms the Documentary has been shown in over 55 countries. The response has been extremely positive.
There are currently advanced discussions with both Channel 10 and the ABC for free to air broadcasts . This will follow the exclusive broadcast period held by Fox/Nat. Geo.
QANTAS and JET STAR will commence showing “BONDI FOREVER “as part of their International and Domestic in-flight entertainment as from December. Discussions are also being held with other International Airlines who have shown interest.
So that we keep this project “totally Bondi “, I have arranged for well- known and respected Bondi surfing identity RICK TEODO to do some “BONDI FOREVER ” Caps , T-Shirts an Hoodies. When I have the samples from Rick I will put photos etc on line for viewing. Those who were involved in the production will be given items as thanks for their contribution. To make it completely Bondi , the Graphic Artwork was done by Sempai AI IKEDA from the Bondi Junction Kyokushin Karate Dojo. Sempai Ai previously held the Australian Kyokushin female lightweight Title and has competed in world karate tournaments in Japan. Following a karate tournament in Indonesia last year Sempai Ai was given surfing lessons by Matt Ellks at Vila Selina in Bali and Ai now wants to get serious with surfing once she finishes tournament fighting.
Thanks again for your support. It was a big project and we shot over 100 hours of footage. However, I’m happy that the story is being told by “Bondi People” and is dedicated to the People of Bondi, and that was my goal with this project.
