Film Friday: Downtown Charlottetown (1988)

G'day there! As promised, nothing having to do with the royals this week. Instead, we're going back a whopping 28 years to 1988, courtesy of this gem of a film I found on Youtube. I don't know much about it, other... Continue Reading →

Lights, Camera, Action: Oyster Fishing (1949)

G'day there! Well, it's been another busy week here in Broadford - so much so, in fact, that Friday has come out of nowhere and I'm coming to you entirely lacking in written material for this week's offering. But it... Continue Reading →
