Coronavirus restrictions are starting to loosen and our cities and towns are showing more signs of life than they have in months. But health authorities and the federal and state governments insist that without an effective vaccine or treatment for COVID-19, life cannot fully return to normal. Australian scientists are at the forefront of this hunt for a vaccine, working around the clock on several promising contenders. The stakes are high, and the degree of difficulty is intense. Four Corners takes you into their world, where they face extraordinary scientific hurdles as well as extreme moral and ethical dilemmas.

Mad as Hell Just who is hoodwinking who? There's no doubt coronavirus COVID-19 has caused great uncertainty in the world, but does that mean we should now ignore the scientists, doctors and even politicians who are fighting to figure out ways to beat the virus? Well yes, if you believe an increasing number of increasingly angry people who are convinced coronavirus is nothing more than a sinister plot to control their lives. But what do these conspiracy theorists know that we don't, and why do so many people listen to them? Liz Hayes speaks with Australians, including the controversial celebrity Pete Evans, who are sick of being told what to do by the government and other authorities. Evans tells Hayes he fears for his safety and thinks he could be targeted because he's so outspoken. Ominously he warns, "If I disappear or I have a fricking weird accident, it wasn't an accident, okay?" Jesse Jackson Sadly, the explosion of violence and unrest in the US this past week is nothing new. And no-one knows that better than the Reverend Jesse Jackson. These days he is America's most revered civil rights leader. In the 1960s he protested against injustice alongside Dr Martin Luther King Jr, and tragically witnessed his assassination. In the 1980s Jackson twice ran for the American presidency. He was unsuccessful, but in an exclusive interview with 60 Minutes, Liam Bartlett asks Jesse Jackson to dream about what the US would be like today if he had been elected. Poisoned For any parent, the first cry of their newborn child is the most anticipated and glorious sound imaginable. It certainly was for Benish and Danial Khan when their daughter Amelia came into the world at a Sydney hospital. Within minutes of being born though, everything changed and the baby was fighting for her life. But it wasn't because she was unhealthy. There had been a catastrophic bungle at the hospital.

Love and Other Catastrophes There’s no better feeling than being in love. And there are few worse feelings than love gone wrong. When it happens it can be bizarre, and at times incredibly cruel. Former couple, rugby league star Josh Reynolds and Instagram lingerie model Arabella Del Busso, can certainly attest to that.

Many people assumed Josh was just another footballer behaving badly until it emerged that Arabella was not necessarily the victim she said she was.
