One Direction mania! ONE DIRECTION: ALL FOR ONE on blu-ray and DVD October 10

So your audience can't get enough of One Direction? Then give them what they want! On October 10 Transmission Home Entertainment will be releasing ONE DIRECTION: ALL FOR ONE on blu-ray, DVD and digital download.

To describe One Direction as the hottest boy-band on the planet is an understatement. ON FIRE is closer to the mark. Their story is quite remarkable – from X Factor losers to global pop domination – in less than a year. Handsome, harmony-singing and choreographed with military precision, the fab five have taken the music world by storm. What is unprecedented about their meteoric take-over is the sheer magnitude of their triumph. The teen sensations’ popularity has escalated to levels of such enormity that they’ve made history in America, scorched sales charts worldwide and been dubbed as the new Beatles.

The future for 1D is bright – these boys are at the top – and that is where they’re set to stay. Meet the world’s newest teen idols, as you’ve never known them before. This is their remarkable story. An absolute must-see for any 1D fan, this documentary is jam-packed with explosive behind-the-scenes footage and back stage interviews.

  • Official interviews with One Direction band members
  • Live performances in London and New York
  • An early unseen performance of Harry Styles, 1D lead singer, when he was a vocalist with White Eskimos
  • Celebrity interviews with boy-bands Big Time Rush, Mindless Behaviour and Westlife, plus Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole and more
  • Interviews with close friends and family
  • Footage of the boys in Australia, the USA and across Europe

Available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download October 10.

Iconic Aussie Rocker Sarah McLeod joins Triple Ms RADAR ROCK as Presenter

Much-loved Aussie rocker, Sarah McLeod, best known as the former face of ARIA award-winning and multi-platinum band, The Superjesus, has been secured as co-presenter of RADAR ROCKTriple M’s new rock show. McLeod knows what it’s like to make it big as an Australian artist and will be right at home bringing listeners the best of the Aussie rock music scene and more.

The Triple M Network broadcasts RADAR ROCK twice weekly around the country as a combination of new rock from emerging and new un-signed acts through to rock from well established artists spanning the last 12-18 months.

Sarah McLeod said, “I’m excited about co-hosting on the Radar Rock show because I get to discover cool new bands that I wouldn't normally hear. Every week I sit and listen to hours of music that’s NOT MINE. It’s a nice change, and its inspiring too! Reegan (McLaughlin) and I have been having fun and it’s great that this show allows a diverse range of music to be heard on such a massive platform as Triple M”.

RADAR ROCK can be heard on 105.1 Triple M Melbourne, 104.9 Triple M Sydney, & 104.5 Triple M Brisbane & 104.7 Triple M Adelaide:

Never one to sit still, McLeod will soon head out on the road with her acoustic guitar and piano to road-test some new tracks from her forthcoming second solo album.  Tour details are available at:

Triple M Content Director, Mike Fitzpatrick, said “Sarah McLeod is a superstar and with her music cred, experience, talent and industry insights, she’s the best person to help shine light on great new music from a blend of artists who can always use and totally deserve the air time. Sarah will do an awesome job”.

Sarah McLeod grew to fame as the lead singer of one of this country’s most iconic rock bands – The Superjesus and has become one of Australia’s most diverse and powerhouse songwriters and performers - multi award winning, double platinum selling, and all-round media favourite. Cementing herself as one of the country’s great rock chicks, she has continued to carve a name for herself within the international spotlight. Fuelled by a musical curiosity, recent highlights in her career have seen her become a revered artist, performer, songwriter, and producer, who can comfortably nestle in amongst the realms of genres of rock, pop, dance and acoustic on a global scale.

Radar is a strong supporter of new Australian music.  At least 50% of Radar's playlist each week is Australian music.

Radar was launched in December 2008 as Southern Cross Austereo’s third national network and was Australia’s first commercial Digital Radio station although only available in metro areas up until now. Recognising the need to do something different than the norm, Radar was conceived to help artists get heard, bringing music lovers the latest music from Australia and around the world.

Radar is all about championing new music and new artists of all genres.  There is strong support of Australian artists, especially those who do not currently receive mainstream airplay.

* LAST DANCE will have its World premiere at 2012 Melbourne International Film Festival*

The Melbourne International Film Festival 2012 will World premiere this taut story torn from today’s headlines but touching on themes as old as the human condition itself: faith, freedom, love, loss and hope.
Holocaust survivor Ulah Lippmann (Julia Blake) hears of a terrorist attack on a local synagogue in her Melbourne neighbourhood. She has no idea she’ll soon find herself held hostage by a Muslim radical, Sadiq Mohammad (Firass Dirana), who's on the run after surviving the bombing. Desperately wounded, Sadiq sees Ulah’s flat as a place to hide while he plans his next move. And so begins a terrifying ordeal that will force Ulah and Sadiq to confront their own pasts - at times driven by mutual need; at times by unexpected revelations; at times by events outside the room. Fear and hatred turn to sympathy as Ulah takes control, not turning Sadiq in, but nursing him until she discovers his shocking secret...

Starring the multi award-winning acting talent team of Julia Blake (Innocence; Human Touch; The Boys Are Back; Bed of Roses) & Firass Dirani (Underbelly; East West 101) and made by first time feature film director David Pulbrook (known as an AFI Award-winning editor on films including The Cup and Hotel Sorrento), LAST DANCE doesn't take sides, or a politics stance, instead presenting a very human story.
