Carrie Bradshaw – she’s the character who catapulted Sarah Jessica Parker to fame, boldly saying the things we were all thinking. When Sex and the City launched in 1998, it immediately resonated with viewers. Fashion-loving New York friends Carrie, Charlotte (Kristin Davis), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Samantha (Kim Cattrall) introduced the world to many firsts – cupcakes, cosmopolitans and explosive sex vocabulary – that are now ingrained in pop culture. While Cattrall has bowed out, the others return this month in And Just Like That… Turn to page 14 for all the goss. In sport, Supercars roars into Bathurst, with racing’s top event set to hit overdrive. Meanwhile, the festive season is upon us and, boy, do we have some cheer for you!

Mankind’s quest for progress has resulted in a damaging imbalance, both above and below the water’s surface, and it’s one that docuseries The Age of Nature highlights must be rectified, stating in no uncertain terms: “We’re at a turning point in history… it’s time to make nature a priority.” Beginning with Awakening, the first of three episodes, British actress Anna Friel narrates a hopeful exploration of what is being done to turn back the clock.
