As a cruise ship passenger passing under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, it seems inevitable that the radar pod is going to be wiped off, so tight is the margin.

Imagine a bomb going off in the radar pod just then. Ship blowey. Bridge ditto. And then there's the traffic.

A rough estimate of people in peak hour road and rail traffic over the bridge: 1600.


Brief: First Rays
In a nutshell

Ray Dunn, columnist of the Harbour City Daily has clearly lost his marbles. He says everything points to jihadists plotting to blow up the biggest cruise ship to dock at Darling Harbour. No one else can see it. And then there's Dunn's paranoid claims he is being earmarked for a hit to get him out of the way. In the end it's up to him, a police dog named Smuts and a grumpy Scot they call "Bull" to stop a two-pronged bomb attacked aimed at killing 5000 passengers from just about every country that dared to be counted among the Coalition of the Willing.
