Tim Winton and Lockie Leonard

An item that I missed a few months back relates to the filming of a 26-part series of Tim Winton's children series of stories about Lockie Leonard. The production started in February and was due to run for six months, based in and around the town of Albany in Western Australia.

In other Winton related news, Ray Lawrence, director of the wonderful Lantana and the current release Jindabyne, attempted to make a film version of Winton's Booker shortlisted novel The Riders, but he was unable to raise the necessary finance.
