The Experiment Identical twins are beautiful quirks of nature, perfect genetic copies of each other with a bond so close many believe they're telepathic. Understandably, twins, and even rarer identical triplets, have been magnets for curious scientists trying to answer that profound question: Is it nature or nurture that determines who we are? But one well-known psychiatrist in the US became so obsessed by his research he engineered a truly heartless experiment. Peter Neubauer separated sets of identical twins and triplets at birth and studied them as they grew up apart. Incredibly they never even knew their siblings existed. But this doctor's cruelty was finally exposed when decades later - in a one in a million chance - Edward Galland, David Kellman and Robert Shafran found each other and discovered an unbelievable truth. Includes interview footage from Tim Wardle's Three Identical Strangers. Buyer Beware Here's an incredible, not to mention shameful, statistic about Australia's building industry. Eighty-five percent of new high-rise apartment towers are defective. The rate of shoddy workmanship has increased dramatically as governments around the country have encouraged more developers to build more high-density housing as a way of containing urban sprawl. As a result, many unsuspecting buyers, trying to put a roof over their heads, are learning a painful lesson: that the cost of cutting corners is very expensive. But as Sarah Abo reports, there is one man determined to fix all the damage.

Security Breach It's been a hell of a year for everyone. But for Victorians, and in particular people living in Melbourne, the resurgence of coronavirus COVID-19 and the return to lockdown has been especially tough. Up until a few weeks ago things had looked so different and there was even cautious optimism that the virus was being beaten. But by escaping containment it has now proved how devious it really is. What remains both galling and inexcusable though is how the state government of Victoria lost control of the disease. Sarah Abo reports on an appalling breach of security that's causing a catastrophe. 'Til Depp Do Us Part It's a Hollywood drama like the world has never seen. With an A-list cast, it's full of intrigue and fiery dialogue, and topped off with lashings of sex and drugs. There is even a pivotal scene set right here in Australia, starring politician Barnaby Joyce. But this production isn't playing at any theatre. Centre stage is a London court where actor Johnny Depp is suing an English tabloid for calling him a wife beater. As Tom Steinfort reveals, no one is going to win an Oscar, but Depp and his one-time bride, actress Amber Heard, have been putting on the performance of their lives, airing every sordid detail of their bizarre and doomed marriage.

Now there has been a significant development in the case: Karen's alleged attacker has been charged with 11 counts of historic child sex abuse. But while this courageous woman feels relief, she is furious because a court has ordered the man's identity to be kept secret.
