Bendigo's top sites will feature in the first episode of an Australian version of Escape to the Country.
A film crew will visit Bendigo this coming weekend to film the first episode of the new half hour program which is intended to screen free to air on Channel 7 Two.
City of Greater Bendigo business development manager Peter Jeffery said the council and local businesses were supporting the filming.
“The episode will feature vision of Bendigo along with interesting facts about the city, our region and its lifestyle," he said.
"It will also feature a number of local homes and businesses."
The council plans to use the program a promotional tool for the region.
“It will be shown at expos and trade shows and will be on the City’s website," he said.
"It will also be used as a tool to attract new people and full fee paying international students to the region and for staff recruitment purposes."
