* See the new plans for Canberra in all their 3D technicolour glory – did the Griffin Legacy call for Parisian
boulevardes? Where do these plans leave the original problem of a down-at-heel and shabby Civic centre, if all
the emphasis moves to City Hill and down to the Lake?

* Jockey Ray Silburn became a quadriplegic when he fell from a horse during a race. Niki Van Buuren was
badly burnt trying to save her horse during the 2003 fires. Yet their love or horses remains undiminished.
Niki is riding again and Ray hopes to get back in the saddle. They are the new patrons of Pegasus – Riding for the Disabled.

* Braidwood author, Roger McDonald, has won the Miles Franklin Literary Award – and he talks to Mark Bannerman
about literature and life.

* Red Hill primary hosts a virtuoso violin performance from Suyeon Kang.

Repeated at midday Saturday.

So are they going to move the shops from Garema Place to City Hill?

They want City Hill to be the new Civic where people go and have a cuppa. But what will send me there in ther first place? Unless there are lots of ground floor shops to attract people to the area during the day, the place will be dead aka the west side of Melbourne Building.

The same can be said of Constitution Ave.
