Helen Jukes, Top of the Pile

A conversation with the fascinating Helen Jukes, author of the beautiful 'A Honeybee Heart Has Five Openings', who embarked on a year of beekeeping as an antidote to the claustrophobia of her urban lifestyle. Helen discusses what it means to ‘keep’ wild creatures. In learning about the bees, what can she learn of herself? The very act of keeping seems to open up new perspectives, deepen friendships old and new, and make her world come alive. This is a beautifully wrought meditation on responsibility and care, on vulnerability and trust, on forging bonds and breaking new ground.

Scott Bevin, Top of the Pile

A conversation with the fascinating Scott Bevan and a celebration of Sydney Harbour, one of the world’s great waterways. Everyone knows Sydney Harbour. At least, we think we do. By as little as a word or two, the harbour floats into our mind’s eye. The Bridge. The Opera House. Fireworks on New Year’s Eve. When we see those images, we feel a sense of belonging. No matter who we are or where we’re from, we see the harbour and we feel good. Scott takes us from cove to cove, by kayak, yacht and barge to gather the harbour’s stories, past and present, from boat builders, ship captains and fishermen to artists, divers, historians and environmentalists, from signs of ancient life to the submarine invasion by the Japanese. This is the ultimate story of Sydney Harbour – a city’s heart and a country's soul.
