IN A time where cheap reality TV dominates our screens, Fraser Coast fans of recently cancelled drama A Place to Call Home say they're not only fighting for the return of their show but for the future of the Australia's TV industry.
Nationwide 1950s-inspired picnics will be held on October 26 to protest the premature canning of the Seven Network's popular Aussie drama.
Set in Country New South Wales following the Second World War, the story follows Sarah Adams (played by Marta Dusseldorp) as she returns to Australia to start a new life.
Organiser of the Fraser Coast protest picnic, Mary Bird said the focus of the picnic was not only to bring back a compelling home- grown drama which was the most-watched Australian drama series of 2013, but the protests have a wider message of supporting the local industry.
"You cannot just shut down Australian productions, you cannot shut down Australian industries and expect them to still be there in 20 years," she said.
