Wentworth Building Photos 2009

Sunday, April 5th, 2009

During the recent Prisoner reunion party in Melbourne, forum member George Lucas took some photos of the Wentworth building, which is the side of the Global TV Studios (then Grundy Studios). George’s photos are below his review, posted with permission, thanks George!.

“It was a fantastic afternoon and it seemed everyone present was having a good time. It was well organised and must have been a nightmare for Val and her helpers to co-ordinate but I think they did a great job. The day began with everyone lining up outside and then around the inside of the front gate and then being ushered into the big marquee that contained seating for the 216+ guests and all the stars.

Stewie’s Review

Stewie“Hey Everyone in PCBH land.. What an amazing out of this world day!! The whole thing started with me at first thinking that i had SLEPT IN !! huh Couldnt believe it as it was a long night before. I had met up with Rob and he had come to the Crown Promenade Hotel to meet up. We watched a few eps i had taken the last Volume with me on my flight to melbourne. haha ( don’t say anything tongue haha ) as i was nearly finished the total boxset i had bought over a year or so ago. I guess you dont think that 692 episodes is a sh*tload to watch when you start.. But i was so glad i enjoyed it from start to end. ( which i might add that i have approx 16 episodes in which to watch before that happens)

Anyway to the juicy bits of info your probably hanging out for. (more…)
