First, Exposed: The Ghost Train Fire & now another theme park documentary series on Australian free-to-air television!

...and a much happier documentary series too...

INSIDE LEGOLAND: A WORLD OF WONDER

The 1st episode goes for 2 hours (including ad breaks, of course) and I anticipate it will be either two 2 hour episodes over 2 weeks or two 1-hour episodes plus the 2-hour 1st episode over 3 weeks:

Documentary series going behind the scenes at the Legoland theme park in Windsor, England, meeting the staff who keep the park running smoothly for the millions who visit each year.

Hope that has built some anticipation...one piece at a time (Disclaimer: I have no more information on the show's upcoming telecast to provide). Previews of Episode 1 is provided below (Note: As stated above, I expected Australia's Episode 1 to be a double episode in a maximum 3 part series unlike the UK which was a 4 part series hence Episode 1 & 2 previews below):

Below is information about the show from a press release on Legoland Windsor's website (I've put it in a spoiler box as it is targeted to UK viewers last year rather than Australian viewers next week):

Inside LEGOLAND® To Air This August On Channel 5

Inside LEGOLAND A World Of Wonder 3

For the first time ever, cameras have been given exclusive access to the people and day-to-day running of the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort in a four-part documentary to be broadcast on Channel 5 this August.

Titled Inside LEGOLAND: A World of Wonder, the first one-hour programme will go out at 8pm on Sunday 9th August with the other three episodes set to be shown in the same weekly Sunday slot throughout August.

Inside LEGOLAND A World Of Wonder 16

Filmed over five months during summer 2019 and the start of this year, viewers will be given unrivalled access into what it takes to keep one of the UK’s favourite family theme parks running and be introduced to some of the 1,800-strong workforce who work tirelessly to create childhood memories that last a lifetime.

In episode one next Sunday, viewers will meet LEGOLAND Windsor’s expert team of Model Makers who between them are responsible for building, refining and updating the thousands of LEGO® models across the Park. Made up of over 90 million LEGO bricks, there’s always a job to be done from replacing the fences at Buckingham Palace in Miniland to overseeing the new hippos – made from 5,000 LEGO bricks each – be transported to their new home by the lake. Viewers will also follow the newest member of the Model Maker team, Will, as he embarks on his first day in one of the most sought-after roles at the Park.

On one of the hottest days of last summer, cameras were there as families flocked in their hundreds to earn their driving licence at the much-loved LEGOLAND Driving School before cooling down on the water slides and dodging the fountains at Drench Towers. But behind the scenes viewers will see just what it takes to keep the rides running as temperatures rise under the watchful eye of the Park’s Technical Services team.

Inside LEGOLAND: A World of Wonder will also take viewers on the journey of designing, building and launching a brand-new rollercoaster as the Park prepares to reveal the world’s first ever DUPLO rollercoaster – the hotly anticipated DUPLO Dino Coaster. With over 100 hours of footage captured, no stone is left unturned as cameras follow the Animation team perform a sky-high six monthly dentist check-up on the technic dinosaur made from over one million LEGO bricks, the Ride Services team diagnose what’s troubling the Jolly Rocker pirate ship and the Events team race against the clock to display 3,000 pumpkins across the Park in time for Halloween. Viewers will also find out which household item Housekeeper Michelle can’t live without for cleaning the 2,000 LEGO models found in the Hotel’s 209 rooms.

Marianne McGoldrick, Marketing Director at the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort, said: “We’ve been welcoming families to LEGOLAND Windsor for over two decades and we thought it was about time we let the nation go behind the scenes to see what’s involved, and the secret tricks and tips, in keeping a 150 acre theme park and two hotels running around the clock.

“Having reopened at the start of July, we’ve already helped thousands of families have some much-needed fun after a difficult few months and we hope that Inside LEGOLAND: A World of Wonder will inspire plans for a Great British day out or staycation this summer.”

It seems Channel 9 decided to have only the sole 2-hour episode, which was screened last Tuesday night.

A little review below:

Spoiler

Even though it focused a lot on the construction & maintenance of the Lego models around the park (particularly Miniland) & their adjacent accommodation, there were very interesting parts for the generic Australian theme park enthusiast like seeing them conduct repairs on Jolly Rocker, a pirate ship ride which seems to be the same model of pirate ship ride used formerly at Sea World Australia (just a bit more extra theming seems to be the only difference). It also shows repairs on other rides (& customer points of sale) as well as their customer service tactics (such as their VIP program).

A good show for theme park enthusiasts but a great show for Lego or Legoland enthusiasts.

Just found out that 9Now has all 4 episodes of the series. They all 45 minutes approximately in duration. Episodes 1 & 2 was the double episode screened last Tuesday night on television.

I now expect again that Channel 9 will screen either two 2 hour episodes over 2 weeks or two 1-hour episodes plus the 2-hour 1st episode over 3 weeks.

What week(s) these other episode(s) is/are to be screened during I don't know but I assume it will be before Lego Masters finish it's latest season.

This is unless the 1st double episode on television rated poorly and Channel 9 decided to just let people watch it on 9Now if they wish instead.
