Keeping fresh food healthy


Join Lee for a brand new episode of Scope as she checks out some amazing science. We find out about the gidgee skink and why they live in family groups, we meet a scientist who found inspiration for a new fingerprinting technique after his house was broken in to, and we check out the sounds of the ocean. High Pressure Juice Nothing beats chomping into some fresh produce! But getting food that's truly fresh can be tricky. Luckily Sandra Olivier and Kai Knoerzer from the CSIRO have developed a new way to keep your food fresh for longer! Lizard Behaviour Most lizards live solitary lives. But as Associate Professor Mike Gardener explains gidgee skinks prefer the company of others. Glowing Fingerprints Dusting for fingerprints is an essential part to any crime scene investigation. But those fingerprints can sometimes be hard to find. Not to fear; Dr Kang Liang and Dr JJ Richardson have developed a new technique that makes fingerprints glow! DIY - Paper Mache Join junior scientist Michelle as she explores the science behind papier mache while creating her very own pinata. Changing Oceans Oceans aren't as silent as you might think, they're filled with a whole host of marine murmurings! But that might soon change. Associate Professor Ivan Nagelkerken and Professor Sean Connell from the University of Adelaide are studying what affect pollution has on these nautical noises. Whale Forensics Whales and dolphins are some of the most interesting creatures on the planet. But when they die, they often wash up along our coast.

Fast food and third world obesity


Gun Control There's been a mass shooting in America which has killed lots of people. Now there's a lot of talk about whether the U.S. needs to tighten its gun laws. We take a look at that debate and we also examine Australia's rules on gun control. Olympic TV The Olympics is one of the greatest shows on earth... but not everyone's allowed to show it. We take a look at the multi-million dollar TV rights deal for the Olympics. The rules of this contract are so strict that the Olympics are pretty much off limits for most TV programs, including BtN. Globesity Obesity has been a problem in the western world for a long time. But now developing countries, which once struggled even to feed their populations, have started to develop big problems with obesity. Nathan looks at how obesity has spread around the world and examines the health issues that have come with it. Cashless Society Can you imagine living in a world without money? It sounds a bit far fetched... but we're just talking about getting rid of actual hard cash, the notes and coins that we use every day. So many transactions are done online or at the swipe of a card and new technologies are going to make this even more common. Some people think this may mean the end for notes and coins. Kids and Cows For kids in the country handling cattle is a way of life. It's also a kind of sport and there are competitions around the country were young cattle handlers show off their skills. Sarah had a look at a cattle show that's just for kids.
