    I've hard very good things bout this but am waiting for the first season to finish before watching it. The interesting thing is that the first season will be a complete story by itself. Season 2 will have a new plot and cast. It sounds very good and I'm interested to see how it pans out.

    FXH,

    SBS has changed frequencies in Melbourne. You (and everyone else in Mel) , will need to re-scan for channels on your TV to pick it up again.

    If you're in Melbourne; American Tailors sells Albert Thurston. I think Henry Bucks have some too.

    And a Good News Item:
    Despite posting intimate pictures of herself on social media every other day, Lara Bingle wants her privacy back. At least that's what she told a Woman's Day photographer last week, reportedly saying she wants to leave Australia.

    “Sydney's my home but I don't like it,” the 26-year-old model told the photographer, “I can't even go to the supermarket without being papped [photographed by the paparazzi].”

    Her threat to leave the country sounds a little hollow, however, after her 2012 reality television show Being Lara Bingle where she was followed by cameras every day, and her exclusive magazine deals during her relationship with Test cricket captain Michael Clarke

    Speaking of recolouring shoes (as we were a page or two ago), can anyone recommend a brand for touching up black shoes around the heel and cap where the colour has been slightly worn/stripped out over the years?

    I know that Saphir does one called Juvacuir, but I couldn't find it in Japan and would rather avoid the hassle of mail order. I think I've seen a Waproo product around the place. I've had cobblers retouch shoes of mine (without asking!) when I've taken them in for repair, so I'm guessing they've used the latter...

    If you get any responses to this would you be so kind as to forward those PM's onto me (with posters' approval). My fiancee is final year JD and looking down that route.

    I'm not in Melbourne and I'm not a barrister (although I am in the legal profession) and I'd say that unless you already have a good set of legal contacts before going to the bar, it is very difficult to start out as a baby barrister nowadays.

    Squatting in another's chambers seems to be discouraged now, and the cost of setting up your own chambers is significant, particularly when you have virtually nothing coming in.

    A colleague of mine did go to the bar a few years ago, but he already had good contacts in law firms and at the bar, so he was a) immediately able to be briefed by law firms and by us and a couple of other govt depts as we knew and trusted him; and b) able to receive referrals from barristers whom he knew as he'd briefed work to them when he was working for us. Without those sorts of connections to rely upon for work, I'd think that it would be very hard work to build up a business.

    agree with JM. maybe have a few friendly contacts with Legal Aid if you're starting off with crime or family. Most counsel in either fields start with that sort of work first.

    That's a tight look, I like it. Seems much more refined then a lot of the other entrants.
