BBC films in Yamba

YAMBA and its people have had such a big impact on BBC journalist Lucinda Axelsson that she hopes to make her way back to the seaside village.

Lucinda was in town with a crew from the BBC filming part of a series investigating natural phenomenon.

“We wanted first-hand accounts of what people have called the cappuccino sea that was experienced in Yamba after the 2009 floods,” she said.

“Not only did we get those, we got photos and a range of different things. The locals were so positive.

“I personally wasn't expecting Yamba to be so beautiful. The weather was horrid but I really fell in love with the atmosphere and the people.”

During their three weeks Down Under, Lucinda and her crew will look at what caused the infamous red dust cloud that engulfed Sydney in 2009, the mouse plague in Mildura and whale stranding in Tasmania, as well as Yamba's sea foam.

“It is action packed, but so far we have had loads of fun doing our job.”
