"People of the Hydro" documentary available to purchase on DVD

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

As part of its centenary celebrations, Hydro Tasmania commissioned a short documentary film to tell the story of the business over the past 100 years.

The Hydro was created by ordinary people doing extraordinary things that have helped develop Tasmania’s identity and changed the way we live.

People of the Hydro: celebrating 100 years of future thinking focuses on the stories of individuals who have been part of the ‘Hydro family’ in various ways throughout the history of the business.

The half-hour documentary includes stories of challenges overcome, technical innovation, and tracks the changes to the business over 100 years. It’s a thought provoking look at ‘the Hydro’ told in the words of some of the people behind the business.
