Trivia

The Arcadia Waters council chambers building is actually the old Concord Council building in Sydney, NSW. Concord Council had been amalgamated with Drummoyne and other nearby councils to form the Canada Bay Council, leaving the former Concord Council Chambers empty, and a great set for the show. Many of the street scenes when they sit on the footpath at outdoor dining areas are also shot in Coincord. See more »

Multi-strand narrative of local government
21 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

This was a brilliant show. The most enjoyable part for me was the multiple story lines that ran over each episode. Geoffrey Atherden cleverly didn't start and finish each story at the same time like other tv series have, instead he had several plots going at once each at different stages of completion. Stories could start or end at any point in the season without effecting the quality of each episode. The cast was also fantastic, everyone played their roles with determination, trickery and humour. I have to give special mention to Rhys Muldoon and Geoff Morrel, Greg and Col were my favourite characters and I always enjoyed it when they argued over budgets and business plans. I really hope that Geoffrey Atherden makes a second series of Grass Roots, but even if he doesn't I'll always have re-runs
