Today In Australia

September 26, 2000

In 18-hour time difference means that events ending by late afternoon in Sydney will appear inthe same day's paper in L.A.

When it is 1 p.m. Tuesday in Los Angeles, it is 7 a.m. Wednesday in Sydney, Australia.

Sydney is 18 hours ahead of Pacific Daylight Time, meaning it will be midday in Australia when The Times goes to press daily. The Times, with a staff of 16 in Sydney, will be uniquely positioned to report on many events on a same-day basis--and often ahead of those events appearing on television. NBC, which owns U.S. broadcast rights, has decided to show all events on tape delay over its network and cable affiliates. Live coverage on the Canadian Broadcast Co. (CBC) is available on only the old, large C-band satellite-dish systems.
