You Yangs, the dual peaks rising up down under, are experiencing a flash back to World War II thanks to a $200 million HBO mini series project under the careful direction of Steven Spielberg.

An outbreak of salmonella is also being experienced by cast and crew. Couriermail.com.au reports:

An investigation has been launched by public health authorities after cast and crew on Steven Spielberg’s The Pacific mini-series were struck down by salmonella poisoning while filming in Victoria.

Five people were taken to hospital and one had to be admitted after becoming violently ill at the You Yangs site. A further 25 people are believed to have suffered severe gastro symptoms after enjoying a hearty breakfast of bacon and eggs.

That’s pretty much the story, here’s the link.
