The Phillip Island and District Historical Society has recently completed a new “Phillip Island History” DVD with the help of a Bass Coast Shire Community Grant. Society committee members Anne Davie, John Jansson and Christine Grayden spent many hours sifting through historic photos and sourcing them from generous members of the community to compile the fifteen minute DVD. The editor was Simon Eddy, who was also involved with other aspects of the DVD’s development and did all the recording of Anne Davie’s narration and various sound effects. The DVD includes sections on the Yallock Bullock, European Explorers, Early Settlers, Maritime industry, tourism, the environment and the community amongst others. The DVD is already selling in the museum, and is seen as ideal to have in holiday homes let out or used by families, or to increase the local history knowledge of residents. The “Phillip Island History” DVD can be purchased for $10 from the museum, which is open during the holidays on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning from 10 a.m. until midday. After the holidays it will be open on Thursday and Saturday mornings. The DVD will also be available for loan from the local library service, or by mail by contacting Christine Grayden on 03 5956 8501 or e: firstname.lastname@example.org.
