#1207 The Block (repeat)

On this week’s show we re-played you one of our favourite episodes to date – ‘The Block’.

The Block in Redfern has a well-documented history of drugs, violence, and riots. Perhaps you’ve never heard otherwise. Maybe you’ve avoided knowing much about it at all, having never stepped foot on Eveleigh Street and it’s surrounds.

On All The Best, you’ll walk the streets of this community. Filled with stories of family and passing travellers, of death, loss of faith and redemption – we take you right into the heart of Redfern, to one of Australia’s most talked about addresses.

Check out a photo essay on The Block by Lauren Carrol-Harris at our Facebook page.

Heroes and Villians

Scott Mcleod
Produced by Nancy Notzon

A few months ago at the Graphic festival, we met Scott McLeod. Scott has been in the comic book industry for over 25 years now, and in that time has written and drawn his own comic book series, written for the Superman series and also published a number of books. Nancy Notzon spoke to Scott recently and this begun our show on Heroes & Villains this morning on All The Best.

Big Kids
Produced by Brigitte Dagg

Danny Chifley is a 34 year old Sydney Sider who is still actively engaged in the purchasing of and playing with toys. He still considers himself very much a ‘big kid.’ In this story, Danny talks about his holidays to New York spending hours in toy stores, and confesses Star Wars still plays a big part in his life.

Produced by Kath Lim

The Witch is the quintessential villain. For centuries people blamed everything on witches, from failed crops, to disease, death & famine, often resulting in the witches paying a high price for these accusations, most of the time, this was death. In this story, Kath Lim talks with three Sydney wiccans, David Gardiner, Jane Meredith and Glenys Livingstone.

Anthony Reilly
Written by Eddie Sharp
Narrated by Luke Rodley

Super villains don’t really exist, do they? In this tale written by Eddie Sharp, he tells the story of a real life villain so swift, so stealth-like, and so down-right genius, that anyone who knew about him was sworn to secrecy. It is the story of Anthony Reilly, a cinema thief from Sydney.
