Comedian Jonny Harris, host of 'Of All Places' was ready to take to the streets of Berwick to learn about the town April 30. He was joined on his tour by councillor Rod Reeves, and town staffers Carol Boylan-Hartling and Julie Glaser.
The Berwick area will be in the spotlight this week while a television crew is in town to tape a segment for “Of All Places.”
Filming for the show begins April 30 with the arrival of comedian Jonny Harris, host of the series about Canadian towns with stories to share. Harris is a Newfoundlander who currently plays Constable Crabtree on the "Murdoch Mysteries" television series.
Harris said the premise of the show is to visit towns where the heart of the community is truly the people.
“We are here to tell the story of the town, what is loveable about it, why people like to live here and how they meet the challenges facing small towns,” said Harris.
The Berwick area episode will highlight the town’s history and some of the area’s current residents and interesting characters including local entrepreneurs George and Harley Moody. The show will also visit a local alpaca farm, farmstay operation and Meadowbrook Meat Market in Somerset.
Filming begins at the town hall complex and in the downtown area today and wraps up on May 4 at the Union Street Café, where Harris will perform a stand up routine with material he has collected during his visit to Berwick. The segment about the town will appear on one of 13 episodes airing on CBC in 2015.
