If you haven’t yet caught an episode of Take Five, add it to your viewing list. Not only is it an excellent opportunity to learn about some high-profile characters, their life stories, and their often-eclectic taste in music, it’s also a chance to see the Music Room at HER Melbourne, designed by Dion Hall in collaboration with JCB, where multiple episodes of the series have been filmed. This interview with prominent Aboriginal actor and performer Mark Coles Smith (Nyikina) was a real delight, telling the story of his childhood and career on screen through a series of memorable songs and conversation.
