Quake shakes Australian TV studio in Melbourne

A TV studio shakes as presenters for the Australian national broadcaster react to a shallow earthquake which was felt in Melbourne. Although the show was off-air at the time the pair where chatting when the room began to shake. The rare quake hit east of the city just after 9:00am local time (2300 GMT) and was felt hundreds of kilometres (miles) away.
