This program balances the image of the blonde bombshell icon we thought we knew, with information about her revealed in newly declassified FBI and CIA files. Here is the proof that her troubles were not all the product of her upbringing in an orphanage, abuse of prescription drugs and failed marriages. Beginning with her wedding to Communist-leaning playwright Arthur Miller (when she converted to Judaism), she was tailed, targeted and tormented by the FBI, CIA and Mafia - and ultimately, through affairs with powerful men, she was unwittingly caught in the middle of a vendetta of lethal forces. Dead at age 36, just months after singing "Happy Birthday, Mr President" at JFK's extravagant party, she was officially listed as a "probable suicide." The film makes a powerful case that the official conclusion was wrong.
Celebrate the milestone moments in Australia's rural history, from Ned Kelly's last stand to Don Bradman's standing ovation; from the highs of the Gold Rush to the lows of the Great Depression; from the devastation of drought, flood and fire to the rural renaissance that has seen agribusiness and farming flourish into the 21st Century. Witnessed through the lens of the nation's longest-running rural newspaper, The Weekly Times, the program will take viewers on a journey through time, highlighting the key moments, characters, experiences and events that captivated, informed, and educated readers across three centuries. It will showcase how the paper with the iconic orange cover became - and remains - a window to the world for those in rural and regional Australia, especially those in far flung and isolated communities.

Our time-travelling pupils and teachers return to their school as they prepare to enter the interwar wears. Starting in 1918, their lessons begin with the language of peace, Esperanto.

The headmaster announces a surprising treat, it's time for the class to take their compulsory nap.
