PARTY POLITICS The Federal election was close... and now things are split at the state level too with each party having 3 state Premiers. Are Australian voters really divided? Or could it be that the political parties are often so similar that it's hard to choose between them? We look at what each party was originally created to represent... and we examine why things aren't so clear cut these days. ROYAL FAMILY The wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton is in a few weeks. A new survey suggests that all the build-up has made the Royal family more popular in the UK. But what about in Australia? Tash looks at the pros and cons of Australia being under a monarchy. GREEN TEA Drinking green tea has for a long time been considered to be good for your health. What started as a huge industry in Asia has moved over to a small part of Australia. It's taken about a decade, but Aussie farmers reckon they could be brewing the best green tea harvest yet. Kirsty looks into how it's grown and what it does for our bodies. EASTER SYMBOLS As it's the last BtN before Easter we thought we'd take a closer look at the way Australians celebrate this holiday. For some people it's an important religious celebration...for others it's about chocolate eggs and the Easter bunny. We explain some of the meanings behind the traditions. HAND BALL You've probably played handball at school before... but did you know that there's a real sport called handball and it's even played at the Olympics. It's a big hit in Europe and it's becoming more popular over here too. We catch up with a group of young handball players and take you through some of the rules.
