From the Maitland Mercury report:
During the late 1970s Australian actor Chris Haywood played a victim of Maitland’s catastrophic 1955 flood.
As a young camera assistant in the Australian classic Newsfront, Haywood’s character (Chris Hewitt) was lost in the raging flood waters during a visit to Maitland to capture newsreel footage of the natural disaster.
This month – in commemoration of the flood’s 60th anniversary – Haywood will attend a free screening of the film at Maitland.
