Film synopsis

They came from all over the world to build a new life and the greatest engineering achievement Australia had ever seen. Created by Roger Simpson and flowing with Australian pioneering spirit, Snowy is a 13 part historical TV series from the award-winning producers Simpson Le Mesurier (Good Guys Bad Guys, Halifax f.p., Something In The Air), setting the migrant experience against the dramatic backdrop of one of the world’s most ambitious engineering projects—the Snowy Mountains Hydroelectric Scheme in 1949.
The Logan family run a small hotel in the remote township of Cooma, a dusty yet peaceful place to call home. But the building of an enormous dam is about to turn Cooma into a wild new frontier. With the surge of hopeful immigrants, shady hustlers and colourful characters – life will never be quite the same for the Logan family – a dramatic existence seasoned with passion and danger, cultural intrigue and the inescapable bustle of change.
