Bike Couriers

Produced by Jesse Cox

Bicycle couriers were at their peak during the dot com boom with over a hundred bikes throughout the city. Now that number has more than halved but there are still a bunch of dedicated riders who spend their days couriering packages – the urgent as well as the bizarre – and dodging Sydney’s traffic. Jesse Cox literally caught up with some of the couriers who call the city their work place.

On The World’s Grandest Stage

Produced by LJ Hill

On Sydney’s harbor foreshore sits one of the world’s most recognizable buildings. Apparently two thirds of the world’s population can name the Sydney Opera House on sight. That’s over four billion people. So what’s it like to play there? If you’re a classical violinist or a Shakespearean actor, maybe you’ve thought about it. If you’re a sculptor and singer/songwriter from Armidale, and have never even been to the Opera House, you probably haven’t. LJ Hill certainly hadn’t. Until a chance encounter at Byron Bay Blues Fest last weekend turned into a night on the Concert Hall stage, 48 hours later. What happened? Julia Thomas joined him to find out.
