When the annual Newton's Nation wheeled gravity sports contestants took to the slopes of Bathurst's Mount Panorama, Charles Sturt University (CSU) television production students and their lecturers provided live streaming coverage on the internet to spectators around the world.
Newton's Nation proved a rewarding challenge for Charles Sturt University (CSU) Television students, given the steep terrain, the high speed at which the competitors travelled, and the fact it stretched over a couple of kilometres of track.
