Kiama and District Historical Society welcomes its long time committee member Malcolm Bedford who will present a talk in Kiama Family History Centre, in Railway Parade on Saturday July 28 at 2.30pm.

He will be talking about Neil Oliver's COAST program on Kiama that was shown on Television on Foxtel in 2017 and more recently on SBS. 

Malcolm spent a day with the production team during the preparation for the episode and had a lot of contact with them prior to the filming day.

The episode featured Kiama history and geology of the Bombo quarry.

A number of artifacts from the Pilots Cottage Museum were also featured in the filming.

He met and talked to Neil Oliver over a three hour period and had a significant off-screen involvement in the making of the episode.

Malcolm will illustrate his talk with segments from the episode.

This will be a rather different and certainly very interesting presentation.

All are welcome to this free event with afternoon tea.
