Produced in mid 07, this is the most high profile piece of media coverage of Parkour in Australia since the discipline started being practiced here. It resulted in a huge rise in interest and participation with Australian Parkour Association classes in Sydney and Melbourne reaching attendances of around 100 students the following week, which at the time was unheard of and somewhat overwhelming.
Instructors from both Melbourne and Sydney worked very closely with the producers on the piece with a lot of interviews being done (none of which was shown), footage taken at a class, and the filming of the 'race' to the Sydney Opera House. Unfortunately, the piece did not turn out as we hade hoped and expected.

A short segment for Noise TV on Melbourne's Channel 31 filmed back in the very early days of the association. Australian Parkour Association president and instructor Chippa is the main focus of the piece with other instructors and APA members also involved in demonstrating some elements of Parkour.
