From Sunday 7 November at 5.30pm
The much-lauded Aussie music program The Sound will return to the ABC this November! Celebrating some of our best musical talents since its launch in 2020, The Sound Season 3 will debut on Sunday 7 November at 5.30pm (local time). Viewers can watch The Sound on ABC TV each Sunday afternoon or catch up with the latest episodes via ABC iview.
Across Season 1 and 2, The Sound was resoundingly embraced by the music industry, media, and viewers alike. A staggering 165 artists were filmed with world-class production values, performances captured in 149 unique and spectacular locations and venues across the country… expect more this November!
It’s been 19 months since COVID-19 decimated Australia’s $36.4 billion Live Entertainment Industry. Launched in July 2020 and created by the late, legendary Michael Gudinski, The Sound’s purpose is clear: to showcase Australian artists on a national audience and help create a much-needed sense of community. ‘This is about Australian music,” Gudinski told Billboard back in September 2020. “I’ve learned you’ve got to turn something negative into something positive.’

From Monday 15 November 8.30pm
Since the first star illuminated the universe, stars have been engines of creation. Professor Brian
Cox explores their cosmic origins and reveals how ultimately stars brought life to the Universe.
Deep space. High drama. Take a front row seat for the greatest show in the universe. From the makers of The Planets comes Universe with Brian Cox.
Rogue planets, fossilised stars, black holes more massive than a million suns. Huge advances in our understanding of the Universe mean that for the first time we can take you to places we didn’t even know existed just ten years ago. In this new series, we come face to face with the Universe’s most surprising characters and reveal how their fates are intertwined with our own.
Across five episodes, Professor Brian Cox roams the vastness of space and time uncovering exquisite moments of sheer drama that changed the Universe forever. We’ll watch the birth of a star in a stellar nursery, experience the power of a supermassive black hole as it consumes an entire planet, and witness the chaos created as another galaxy collides with our own galaxy, The Milky Way. We’ll even travel back in time to the day without a yesterday - to witness the very beginning of time and space itself in the moment of its inception – to a time before the Big Bang.
