George Lucas, Ridley Scott and James Cameron talk about how science fiction films developed from the earlier naive films to today's sophisticated sci-fi thrillers, and how they have remained popular.

Leading journalists Maxine McKew, Ray Martin, Andrew Rule and Brisbane's Tony Koch talk about the pressure on reporters to censor themselves when reporting on black violence in Aboriginal communities.
