World change starts at Docklands

Docklands is playing its part in making the world a better place.

Waterfront City is home-base for a new block-buster TV show “Change the World”.

It started as an idea of Docklands TV producer Anne Tindall and really started gathering momentum when she enlisted the support of former Young Australian of the Year Hugh Evans.

Now it seems everyone from former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to showbiz celebrity Hugh Jackman is on board.

Mr Rudd is endorsing it publicly and Mr Jackman has agreed to front the program.

So expect to bump into either of the famous Hughs when things really start to happen at Waterfront City later in the year.

Writer/director Wayne Tindall explained the concept as providing a platform for people committed to making a positive change.

“It’s about ordinary people doing extraordinary things,” he said.

Six teams of two people will be chosen.

Each team will be given $50,000 and matched up with high profile mentors who will assist and inspire them.

Two teams will be chosen to undertake projects in Australia and the other four will have an international focus. Already 1000 requests to be involved have come through Hugh Evans’ Facebook page and recruiting hasn’t even started yet.

A special facility is to be built in the Waterfront City Piazza to host the recruiting process and subsequent filming. Anne and Wayne Tindall’s company NBS Global Productions is being sponsored by ING Real Estate and Harbour Town.

Mr Tindall expects the concept to be picked up internationally – which makes a nice change to Australia’s usual habit of making local versions of foreign shows.

Eight episodes of the show will be made with a two-hour celebratory finale being hosted at Waterfront City probably next June.
