Desert Collectors Season 2

Parade Media Group
13x60’

Although mostly desert and sparsely populated, the area is one of the largest gold and nickel mining areas in the world, and is home to many unique and eccentric characters.

Desert Collectors S2 is a documentary series that brings this area and its people to life over 13 one (broadcast) hour episodes. The show is produced and presented by Nigel Quick, a lifelong Goldfields resident, avid collector and owner of a Kalgoorlie memorabilia store. Nigel is ably assisted by some of his collector mates, as they travel great distances off the beaten track to unearth the often weird and wonderful outback treasure troves accumulated by the tenacious pioneers living in one of the most remote and desolate areas in the world.

Nigel and his mates explore the diverse and unconventional motivations that inspire collectors to assemble the vast range of world-class and not so world class collections revealed in Desert Collectors S2. Innovative cinematography brings to life the historical value of items ranging from vintage cars, bikes and advertising through to cannons, 1000 dolls and puppets and even 200 year old tea kettle ink-wells.

Desert Collectors brings reality with a capital R back into the documentary genre. Although it is in the tradition of shows such as American Pickers and Pawn Stars, it comes from a uniquely Australian perspective, with an authenticity, sense of humour and spontaneity that is often lacking in the staged interactions and repetition that characterise many reality shows.

Nigel and the crew of Desert Collectors bring a breath of fresh air to the small screen, in a way that is natural and unpretentious as well as informative and highly entertaining.
