THE little town of Koroit will capture hearts around the nation when it airs on the ABC's Back Roads program this Monday.
The community has been abuzz with excitement after the nation's broadcaster spent a week in the south-west last April capturing its unique Irish heritage.
To celebrate the momentous occasion, the Koroit Irish Festival committee are hosting a live screening of the episode at the Koroit Theatre.
"We're really excited to be showcased to the whole of Australia," festival president Adele MacDonald said.
"We're inviting the whole community to get together and celebrate. We are very proud of our community and of the people who live in our community.
"We're really proud of our Irish heritage and think it's very deserving of being filmed. I think we're a hearty little township that really know how to look after each other and have fun."
After the famine in Ireland many Irish people migrated to Australia in search of the best soil to plant their spuds.
And so Koroit was born.
To keep the heritage alive, the town puts on an annual Irish festival where traditional games are played and the Guinness flows.
"Year after year we celebrate that wonderful history and it just keeps getting bigger and bigger."
Frank 'Tuddy' Bowman is a regular performer at the Irish festival. He was flattered to be a subject of the series.
"I'm really looking forward to seeing it," he said.
"My mate Mick Morgan and I have been singing at the festival for many years.
"I look forward to the festival every year."
Zara Walsh, 8, took out Flaming Folk Person of the Year for her brilliant red locks and is excited to see herself on the television.
"I'm happy but nervous, it was crazy when they were here there were lots of cameras and photos!" she said.
The screening will be held at the Koroit Theatre at 7.30pm on Monday, with supper and a Q&A with program producer Kerri Ritchie afterwards.
