Broadcast News Experience

I wish I'd filmed this as it happened, but there was simply no time.

And the phone was playing up - which is key to the story.

Here's me telling it...

and here is the overlay that was worth all the trouble

Sunday in Sydney

Although yesterday had really taken the biscuit - 41 degrees or more across the city - the expected Southerly change didn't happen overnight. Indeed it was still 33 degrees at midnight, and didn't get below 27 even early in the morning.

I know - I was up at 5 again. Tom likes to get up early on a warm day.

By the time we were on the 0905 a373 from Randwick to the city, a bus we caught in a rather more exciting manner than was strictly necessary, the young lad had fallen asleep.

He was still asleep when we started to roll through the park. I don't think I've ever walked through Hyde Park so early on a Sunday, and although a few bearded types were lurking about, no-one was actually playing.

So - our first game of Big Chess. I wonder if we could make a Big Chess on our new terrace?

By the time we'd wrapped the game, it was getting genuinely hot again. Izel needed relief.

Terrific light though. SOmething about really hot weather - it's like it burns through the air and strikes the ground in a bolder 'get out of my way' kind of manner.

Art Gallery was delicious, but not as delicious as the Southerly change that's just arrived half an hour ago.
