Have you ever wondered about the seas and whether anybody or any country controls them? Well in this episode BtN gets to the bottom of some of the ocean's legal mysteries.
In our first BtN Special of the series we look at money but not just any money, Australia's money. The money the government gets from all the taxpayers and how it spends the cash; from how the government divides the finances into different areas in the budget to bailing out private companies. We also look at how money leads to corruption and when is a gift not a gift.
There are many issues that divide people's opinion. And that's what we talk about in this BtN Special; the things that some people see as right and others as wrong.
The environment is always a topic of interest on BtN so in this Special we look at how we can help to protect it.
Through four different stories, we take a look at some of the great things happening in the indigenous community.

In our first BtN Special of the series we meet some of the people who make a difference by helping out the needy.
In this BtN Special we focus on the great things many kids achieve. We meet a boy who won a prestigious science award by creating his own experiment, a girl who refused to give up after a serious car accident and a boy designing and making his own animatronic robots. There's the kid who followed in his grandfather's footsteps to become a major lawn bowls contender.
BtN loves to showcase the Arts. From a Colombian street circus to the canines starring in 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' to adapting Shakespeare to a Primary school class there's something for everyone. And with a bunch of talented schoolgirls taking the ukulele to a worldwide audience we wonder if this little instrument might become much bigger!
In the cyber world of today it's more important than ever that kids understand the issues associated with being online. We begin be explaining how to be smart when using social networking then go on to examine what cyber crime is and how it could affect you. We also look at the importance of computer coding and why more experts are recommending kids learn how to write code.
Kids around the world have unique stories to tell. From the young Afghan refugee who overcame the odds to make a life in Australia to the boy who survives the constant bombardment of life in Syria, to the Aussie schoolgirls who travel to a Cambodian school we are taken on an emotional and uplifting journey in this BtN Special.
Health and science often go hand in hand. In this BtN Special we see how the medical marvels in the laboratory affect the lives of everyday people. Science fiction is becoming science fact with scientists now making some human organs in the lab. And cloning is not just about copying animals. It's becoming an important therapy in the treatment of medical conditions. Antibiotics are the miracle cure for the treatment of infections but is their magic under threat from overuse?
In this BtN Special we explore the many facets of food and eating. Food is an important part of our lives and we visit a school where kids are growing their own garden and cooking their own meals. How do we sustain food quantities so everyone in the world eats fairly and healthily? We look at the food of the future and ask should we be eating insects? In contrast, some eat far too much. Even in developing countries obesity is becoming a health crisis.
As the title suggests, in this BtN Special we take a look at people who 'make a difference' in the world. We meet a girl who gives up her time to deliver meals to the needy and the young guy who represents Australia at the Nations Youth Forum. Then there's Nas, a blind newsreader who was given a chance to do the work she loves changing her life forever.
In this special we focus on learning beyond the traditional classroom and some of the unconventional ways kids are learning today.
