Tonight, on 7:30 SA - the dangerous cocktail of youth and alcohol. A man was hit by a car. He ran across the road. There was a crash, he's down.On the Streets with Adelaide's Green Team. For some people it just takes a bit of up
want to be there to help pick up the pieces when ha passion
happens.And one man's lifetime passion for ki, and quackery. I think, as you can see, it just got too big.

This Program is Captioned Live. Thanks for joining us for 7:30 SA. I'm Simon Royal. Next month, are new licensing laws come in. They are an attempt to curb binge drinking and violence in Adelaide's CBD. After 3 o'clock, venues will effectively lock their doors, allowing those inside to continue drinking, but stopping others joining in, or going pub crawling. The combination of youth and alcohol can have devastating consequences. While police and emergency services pick up the pieces, another group has started working in Hindley Street and recently, 7:30 SA spent the night with them.

We see young people who have drunk too much and are unconscious on the side of street or in a gutter or doorway of a venue knew. People sort of walk past and don't help People sort of walk past don't help out. Occasionally we see violence break out, as well.Another bus off loads its cargo of young people near Hindley Street in Adelaide's CBD. The kaleidescope of pubs, clubs and alcohol is an I irr resistible magnet. For many, the object is a big night out. But moving amongst the revellers is a group of their peers who encourage a lighter night. This is what it's like being on the street team. So we'd be walking fairly slowly up and down this part of Hindley Street looking for people that need support. Someone could be sick or vomiting in the gutter.They are the Green Team, and apart from team leader Jess Bigg, they are all volunteers. How do I feel about Hindley Street? I think sometimes it gets a bad wrap, but at the same time, there are definite spots that need some support. I think there are a lot of people that come into the city to celebrate safely and they do so, but then for some people it just takes a bit of a turn for the worst and we want to be there to help pick up the pieces when that happens.Before her friends arrived, the Green Team helped this young woman. Earlier, they'd assisted a young man who was so drunk he was on all fours. They are hardly isolated examples. Nevertheless, at around 1am, Jess Bigg counts tonight as a quiet one. It seems to be getting busier, but I do feel the vibe is fairly happy. It's funny how different Saturday nights can be aggressive. Tonight seems to
be a positive vibe on the street.She spoke too soon. For one young man, street.She spoke too For one young man, a suspected combination of alcohol and an ill-timed dash across busy Morphett Street turns the night tragically wrong. A man was hit by a car. He ran across the road. There was a crash, he's down. I guess it sounded like a thud, and followed by a crack. And from my experience, I guess it's the body hitting the car, and the head hitting the windscreen. It's a very scary sound. It's certainly something that will stick with you, yeah, something that will stick with me.Green Team volunteer Clare O'Donnell has paramedic training. With other bystanders, she makes sure the critically injured 21-year-old has a pulse, is breathing and is kept still. I feel very sad for him. The I feel like I wish I could do more, I wish I could have done more at the time. I feel very restricted when you've just got your first aid and your hands, and there is nothing more that you can really do except call help for him. As emergency services work on the man, the complications for police grow. A fight breaks out across the road. The difficulty is that if you have very large numbers and particularly of young people who are often very exuberant, and if you mix alcohol into that mix, it's an unpredictable element and can easily very, very easily escalate - escalate into not just conflict, but violence and really severe problems.Professor Ann Roach of Flinders University is a specialist in drug and alcohol addiction. The she says what happens in Hindley Street at night can be seen in any Australian city. The data shows that while the majority of Australians aged from 15 to 25 has become more conservative with alcohol consumption, a significant minority has become much more extreme. There has also been another social change, where after
midnight, also been another remarkable
social change, midnight, places like Hindley Street, become midnight, places like with very few people over the with very few people age of 30. That didn't happen 10 or 15 or 20 years ago, so we have had a real change in the way young people live their lives. So what you see in the way those particular sort of streets and laneways are now used during the night, are very different to the way they are occupied during the day. They turn essentially into kind of public party scenes, to a very large extent.See doesn't believe next month's new 3am lockout laws alone will significantly change that. This is where the Green Team fits in, with a wealth of public party experience.

SONG: # # In the end it's right, I hope you have the time of your life #

They are part of the Christian youth group which started ep gauging in schoolies - engaging in schoolies week in 1999. Certainly from our workings in the schoolies environment, we have seen a very chaotic at times hostile change
and dangerous environment change to a very successful, well-structured celebration environment, where really the incidents of crime and also harm to young people has been significantly reduced over the last 15 years. What works and what doesn't work?Well, we don't believe that it's that effective to tell young people what to do. I think past the age of about four or five old, no-one likes being told what old, no-one likes being what to do. So we try and provide that peer support to them, that's positive support, and we really are trying to get across a clear message to young people that we believe in them. We believe that they can have a positive and good future. The Green Team came to Hindley Street a year ago. Whether they can make a change here remains to be seen, but it is clear that schoolies has given the Green Team credibility. Many of the young people out tonight already know them from Schoolies, including this young man, who makes a promise. I promise I'm not going to drink at all, am I? No, I'll make sure of it.Do you think he'll keep his word and not drink any more tonight?I am a hopeful person, so yeah, I hope so, but I doubt it. We'll see. There's no way of knowing so. Along with their weekly Saturday night patrols, once a month the Green Team run a photo booth. Snaps, snags and fairy bred, it all works either to slow the drinking or to slow the effects. The most important thing, though, is being there and being different. But even the best guardian angel can't always save people from themselves. The day after the young man was hit, the Green Team meets to debrief. His fate is the main topic of conversation, but it's also a reaffirmation of what they are trying to do. As a 21-year-old, you kind of expect that your life's going to be pretty cruisy, I guess, you go out with your mates and have fun and don't expect something like this to happen and then completely flip your world upside down. I feel like all I want to do is find out how he is and help in some other way, but obviously, you know, he has family and friends, so they'll be doing that for him.

As Labor grinds towards selecting a new leader, one of contemplates
the party's kingmakers contemplates a new future. The likely highest profile South Australian casualty of the election is oi Ronnicly one of so-called
- ironically one Labor's so-called faceless men of the right. Don Farrell says only a miracle will save his seat. I caught up for him Why did Labor lose?Look, we lost because we couldn't resolve our internal divisions, Simon. Too much of the last six years was spent fighting ourselves rather than fighting the Opposition.Do you think that was the only thing, given that there were issues over the administration of pink batts, there was Craig Thomson - there were a number of significant issues, apart from division? Simon, no Government goes through its term without particular problems, but if you look back over this period of time, the sorts of issues that people would ordinarily attribute to good Governments certainly applied.Do you have any Kevin Rudd?Look, I backed right person to lead the party and I believe we should have allowed her to lead us to the last election. My colleagues had a different point of view.He brought a number of Molotov cocktails to the party. Does he now deserve any credit, in your view, for helping save the furniture? My differences with Kevin were political, they weren't personal. I the last election, that Julia was the best person to lead the party. I felt it at this current election. We now have no way of knowing.Are you going to keep this stot in the Senate - spot in the Senate? It's very tight. I did say earlier in the week that it's going to take a minor miracle to win this position, but I do believe in miracles and imstill a chance.If you don't get in, your preferences are going to help elect Senator Hanson-Young.

There we go.If you believe in minor miracles, maybe God is punishing you. That's possible, Simon, that's very possible. Look, that's the way the preferential system - the exhaustive preferencecial
system we have in the Senate works.Are you of a view now that it needs to be changed?I think what's happening now is that there is a group of people out there who have worked out a way to game the system. I think what you might want to do, or the one thing that I think you need to consider doing, is saying, look, you can't be elected unless you get a certain percentage of the votes - say, 4% or 5%.Aren't you then in a situation of arguing that somebody who gets a full quota in their own right - say Penny Wong or Nick Xenophon. Are they five or six times por legitimate than Bob from family first - or actually seven or eight times what he did?I don't think it's an issue about the legitimacy. I think you have to say that if you are a serious political party, then you've got to get a percentage
relatively significant percentage of the vote. Otherwise, what we are going to find, both in the Senate and potentially in the legislative council, is that the smaller groups invent - basically invent names that sound popular, and cross-preference, and I don't think that really is the objective of the democratic system.Mary Joe Fisher, the former Liberal Senator, made a point on 891 this week that basically the major parties have no-one to blame but themselves. You didn't campaign?Yes, I think Mary Joe Fisher right.Did you have any core flutes out. - capital pain posters. - campaign pose teresNo, there wasn't.Well, what does that say to voters about how parties are about the about how serious the major parties are about the Senate
really parties are about the really mattering - about you
actually parties are about the Senate
really actually having to contest Senate seats?Traditionally, Senate what you expect to happen you keep your what you expect to you what you expect to happen is if
you keep your vote up high enough in the Lower enough in the Lower House, then people will vote for you in the people will Senate. What people will vote for you in Senate. What happened on this occasion was that people got the impression that the Senate was a contest between Nick Xenophon and Senator Hanson-Young. So they thought they had to make a decision about one or other of those. I agree with you that in the future the major political parties will have to campaign in the Senate if they expect to win the number of seats that they ordinarily ought to be Lower
entitled to based on their Lower House vote.That's a good thing?Look, it is a good thing, I think, and I think we have learnt a lesson. I personally learnt a pretty hard lesson out of the results of have
this Senate campaign. You do have to campaign in the Senate. I don't think there will ever be an occasion where the major parties again don't run their own specific Senate campaigns.

This weekend, a South Australian auction house will be selling one of the rarest and most unusual collections it's seen. Everything from medical quackery to rare film projectors will go under the hammer. All of them are the result of one man's lifetime of collecting. Leah MacLennan reports.

As a boy I used to collect rocks, stamps and coins and things like that. It may have started with nicknacks of boy hood, but collecting has become a lifetime obsession for Dr Garry Scroop. In his 20s, he started Scroop. In his his first serious collection - fon grams and gram phones.Can you tell me a bit about this?This is very early, about - 1895. It's unusual in that it's firstly electric, which early phonographs. It plays very large cylinders. Dr Garry Scroop spent a long it is
career in medical research, so it is now surprise microscopes, medical equipment and what can only be described as medical quackery find their place in his collection. The brass once are in the - ones are in the middle here. They are of course a lot earlier than the other microscopes and there is a whole variety of different microscopes there. It's number 99, made by Ros. 99 is a very earlier serial number, so that would be 1860, or 1870.Dr Scroop says his career influenced every aspect of his collection. Life as an academic meant many research slide presentations, from which grew his interest in magic lanterns. The magic lantern was in its heyday in the late 19th century, so most of the stuff disappeared by 1900. It wasn't used after that. That particular one there is a professional one, and that's the one we used to use in the magic lantern show.This is pre-cinema?Yes, so all the effects are in it, fade in, fade out, all possible - flash back and all of that sort of thing was done with slides.

Dr Scroop didn't just keep his imagine inic lantern s in Cabinets. In the 1980s he put on Victorian era-style shows. These are some of the slides that create the effect of movement, which people are always interested in. That's why the cinematograph was such a natural progression from the magic lantern.Over the years, the collection grew, until the doctor's home was filled with thousands of objects. My interest in photographery grew from - because I bought one of these lovely instruments. It is a fairly modern camera, 1970, something like that, with fabulous performance. That led to an interest in other cameras, and other companies.As he entered retirement, Dr contemplating selling collection. But in September last year, his life took devastating turn. A keen cyclist, he last year, his life took a
devastating turn. cyclist, he was seriously devastating turn. A keen injured when he was hit by a truck, making it harder to care

Garry's been a customer of ours for quite a long time. He approached us a few years ago with interest in selling his collection. So we went out and had
about two or three years ago and had a look, which is where we got some of the footage for our video. Once Garry had his accident, unfortunately, then he contacted us and said it's now time to move it and move it now time to move it and move quite quickly. I think, as you can see, it just got too big. I'm getting on in years and I thought I best get rid of it while I know what everything is and it can be properly documented. Otherwise it would be a deceased estate and open slather, really. That was one of the main reasons. , to get rid of it.Between Dr Scroop and the auction house, it's taken nearly four months to catalogue the almost 1700 lots. 24 years in the industry, and I haven't seen a collection like this. It's probably the biggest in Australia of its type, to come up for sale probably in the last decade, so highly unusual for sale.It's full of the rare and unusual, and for Dr Scroop, it's difficult to choose a favourite. But he's always perfect
been on the lookout for that perfect item. The things that interest you most, I guess, are those that are rare, or that are in perfect working condition, and original condition. That's what you're looking for. So I've got a kinteiscope, which is the beginning of film projection, and it's completely, intact, in its box and everything from 1900. So that makes particular interest.Are there any particular pieces here that stand out for you? Well, probably this one here, the closest to me, it's an old grafalex camera, made for advertiser, and it was used - made for the 'Advertiser', and it was used at the Adelaide Oval in the bodyline series. It's a very good piece of SA history.At a conservative estimate, the entire collection million dollars. For Garry Scroop, it's may be worth around half Scroop, it's not really about the money - million dollars. For the money - it's a chance to make sure a slice of shift is looked after. I think it's a lot of passion. It's almost an lot of passion. obsession, really, to put it obsession, together, because you have got to store the together, because you to store the stuff, as well, so you're really doing a caretaker role for a lot of the stuff until snun someone - now, someone else will take care it from now on.

Remarkable collection, and a remarkable achievement, too.

The Royal Show is on, and it is the largest event on the State's calendar with more than half a million people going through the gates. Some of them are in the hundreds of prizes awarded in various categories, including brewing, where a group of students has stunned the critics by scooping the pool.

I was flabbergasted, really drop jauded.Stephen Nelson is a brewing lecturer. What has him surprised is the success of the facility's latest stout, known as ten out of ten. We had this vast array of ingredients, that we needed to do something creative with. It was a project that was half by necessity but also inspired by a few key intrepid students who really put the idea together.The stout isn't called ten out of ten because it is perfect, it is made from 10 different hop, malts and has 10% alcohol. But the brew has been given top marks at the Royal elbeer shore. It was named Champion Exhibit, champion SA exhibit , Champion Small Brewery Exhibit and Champion Stout. The beer obviously was one of the few imperial stouts there. I didn't think all the judges would give it gold. It stands on its merits. It's a good imperial stout, but for one beer to get best stout as well as best SA exhibit , and best small brewery exhibit , and champion overall s a lot of awards for one beer. You couldn't but be surprised at that. Simon Fahey is the technical manager at Coopers brewery. He's also the chief beer judge at the show. Entries include everything from micro breweries to major commercial brands. To eliminate potential biases all the beers are judged through a series of blind tests.Were you surprised when you found out it was a TAFE beer? Initially, yes, but then when I realised it was a student project, and over there at TAFE is the future of SA brurers, so I'm quite happy that a student actually won or a student project actually won, because that's our future.Beer was first judged at the Royal Adelaide Show back in 1844,s but this era of beer awards only began in 2011. Simon Fahey has been the Chief Judge since then and says while people might be used to seeing wine tasting, there is a key difference when it comes to beer. We pick up what's called after bitterness, and the only way you can get that is by swallowing. That's our excuse, anyway.Regency TAFE has a focus on hospitality and includes ab international hotel Cordon Bleu school
college management and a Le Cordon Bleu school school. It has had the brewery since 2008 and since then has done everything from short courses for amateur brewers to forestry professionals -It's part of the applied food studies program part of studies program and within that
we part of the applied food studies program we have buchery, goods, the art son cheese amad in academy. A lot of cullinary stuff and fermented produce and stuff and fermented produce beer sits right in there with it, using local agricultural ingredients. We take students from people doing a diploma in food tech, university students who are doing food and nutrition studies - all kinds of people come through the brewery. The award-winning Regency TAFE beer is turning heads interstate. #id seen the results from the Adelaide beer awards and you expect to see the usual suspects coming up with the tropies. When I saw that the champion beer had been won by a beer from - caught my eye.Beer blogger and journalist James Smith had a batch off the ten out of ten stout delivered to Melbourne. He's one of the lucky few outside of SA who have had a chance to taste it. Not bad for a bunch of college students.James Smith says the beer industry's current going through a similar revolution to what the wine industry went through three or four decades ago. Consumer s are looking for something different than the mass produced beers. Over
all beer the mass produced beers. all beer consumption in
Australia is at the mass produced beers. Over
all Australia is at the lowest its Australia been for more than six been for more than six decades. Away from the Away from the more bigger producers, there are probably getting over 150 smaller brewing companies and breweries now who are - many of them be probably just a few years old and new ones opening all the time. They are experiencing rapid growth.Creating beer for the expanding craft beer market is not the focus at the TAFE. Its award winning stout is incredibly rare. It can only be bought on the campus and once the current batch is sold, it will never be made again. It's not a beer business, it's an education business and I need to keep my feet on the ground about that when you win awards like this. Everybody wants the beer, no doubt, but our core business is in teaching, training, developing employable skills. The sale of the beer is actually a cost-recovery, so the beer is made and rather than go to waste, we want to show it off and let people drink it.There is only half a pallet left, but for the true beer nerds that only adds to its cache.That's the program for this week. We'll leave you with another fiercely fought show competition where every year one woman judges the best Bonsai. A big job with small trees. Sideshow Bob Lawrence discussed the art of miniature trees with Avril Stanley. Have a grade weekend. Goodnight. It basically means a tree planted in a pot.

A tree planted in a pot needs to be artistically styled and the Japanese and Chinese developed a set of guidelines to help us style the trees. They are all meant to represent shapes that occur in nature. I have been doing Bonsai as a hobby since the late 60s. I was invited to Adelaide by the Royal Show committee to judge the beautiful Bonsais that are on display here. Every 12 months or every two years, depending on the age of the tree, they are taken out of the container. We take off roots renew growth in new roots and that keeps us going for another couple of years. The age of the tree and
Bonsai doesn't The age of Bonsai doesn't matter and has
no effect The age of the tree and no effect on the judging of the true. There were no effect on the judging of true. There were trees in true. There China and Japan that are of years China and Japan that of China and Japan that are chous old. The age of years -. old. of years -. Thousands of years not important, it's how old the old. The age of the tree tree looks. As you know, Australian natives need fire to germinate their seed. We have a few Bonsai on display here that have depicted the way the trees grow in nature. They have suffered a terrible bushfire, and they have got nice, young new shoots that have helped to form the basis of a new tree from the original root system. It really is quite astounding. I have to say, it's been quite a challenge in trying to choose a winner from so many beautiful specimens, but we have actually decided on a really good one and a beautiful depiction of Australian native plants as Bonsais. So this would be my champion. It's Australian native and I particularly liked it because it's a good maerng of Japan - marriage of Japanese Bonsai styling techniques using Australian trees and it's a really beautiful specimen.
