Country Town Rescue is an observational documentary series filmed over a year in the small NSW town of Trundle. To save the town from dying a small group of dedicated locals get together and try to boost the town’s population by enticing newcomers to the area by offering up abandoned farmhouses for just $1 a week. Over 400 families applied for only five available farmhouses. After much deliberation five families are chosen and arrive in high summer with temperatures soaring to 45 degrees.
Through renovations, changing seasons and family and farmers disputes, viewers get a ringside seat to this very Australian social experiment.
