50th Anniversary Exhibition Down Under
The ABC and the BBC Worldwide ANZ are bringing a piece of Who down under! They’ve come together to present a free, 50th anniversary Commemorative Exhibition at the ABC Ultimo Centre in Sydney from now until January 2014.
Doctor Who is currently seen by almost 80 million viewers in Australia, the UK, and the US and more than 200 other countries worldwide. Declared the longest running science-fiction series in the world by the Guinness Book of World Records, there have been Eleven Doctors, many friends and companions, and loads of memorable monsters!
Featuring props and costumes from the show’s 50 year history, including one of Tenth Doctor David Tennant’s costumes, Kylie Minogue’s costume from Voyage of the Damned, an original Dalek, an iconic TARDIS, and much more, the exhibition aims to bring Doctor Who to life for the Australian fans.
Says Jon Penn, Managing Director of BBC Worldwide ANZ:
“The ABC has been the home of Doctor Who in Australia for all of its record-breaking 50 year history. I am delighted to be partnering again as we offer fans a chance to celebrate this important anniversary and to experience some of the wonderful history of this iconic and classic BBC series.”
The exhibition, open weekdays and a number of weekends including the show’s 23-24 November 50th anniversary weekend, will run from 15 August through 31 January 2014. The event is free and open to all ages.
