#1213 A Frightened Country

Where were you when the Cronulla Riots broke out? The answer to this question is something that most Sydneysiders can recall with ease. This week’s episode explores the Cronulla riots and the topic of Nationalism from the perspective of an ‘accidental passerby’ and and ‘accidental local’. Sometimes, things aren’t always as they seem.

On January 26 this year we asked a simple question, ‘What does Australia Day mean for you?’

On a hot summer’s day in Dec 2005 a couple of friends stop-off for a swim a Cronulla beach, unaware they are about to step straight into the scene of one of our worst cases of race related violence

Cronulla local Kath Lim was at high school when the riots broke out and it wasn’t until then that Kath really began to understand what being from ‘the Shire’ meant.

#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.
