On the back of our behind-the-scenes look at the production of Fires and its sustainable production practices last week, regular reviewer Mel Campbell assesses the show itself in her review. According to her Fires review, it’s vividly real, which may be a bit of a double-edged sword, depending on your relationship to the Black Summer fires, or any bushfire for that matter.

Rochelle also had a chat with storied producer Tony Ayres about the genesis of Fires, which begins airing on the ABC this week, as well as a bit about the reception of Clickbait on Netflix, his role in mentoring new Australian production talent, and the state of our local industry. Well worth a read!
