Sunrise weather crew visits Port Arthur
The popular weather segment on the Channel 7 morning news show Sunrise was broadcast from the Port Arthur Historic Site this morning.
The crew visited Tasmania for just two days, capitalising on the network’s satellite link van being already in the State for a football fixture.
After a 4.30am start to set up, weatherman Grant Denyer presented live-to-air segments from in and around the Penitentiary and Separate Prison, finishing with a segment from the exercise yard.
The weather, which was forecast to be dreadful, stayed fine until after the program finished.
Next week, the crew will present the weather from sunny Fiji – by way of contrast!
Several segments were completed before dawn broke
