paul-makin today tonightThis week we get personal with Paul Makin, a cameraman turned journalist turned cameraman.

Now back at Today Tonight Adelaide, Paul has a unique role.

Equipped with a camera, he heads off to shoot stories solo, edits them and contributes to the new, improved Today Tonight.

We learn about camera work, dealing with triumphs and setbacks, ghosts and singing nuns.

We also get the lowdown on Adelaide’s high flying wifi with the project manager of AdelaideFree City Wifi, Peter Williams.

Peter tells us where it is, how to use it and how to exploit it to the full.

We wrap up our investigations into whether men can OVER groom, taste a holy wine for our SA Drink Of The Week, sip some gin on our musical pilgrimage and the Adelaide Visa Council rejects three visas after granting 17 last week.
