Biden His Time As vote counting continues in the US presidential election it appears increasingly likely that Joe Biden will finish the race for the White House ahead of Donald Trump. But that doesn't guarantee he will become America's next commander-in-chief. The incumbent president has already deployed an army of lawyers to challenge the results of the election. As Tara Brown reports, turmoil in the US is set to continue. The King and Thai Here's a regal dilemma to consider: Is it right for a king with 70 million subjects and wealth in excess of $70 billion to be seen frolicking around in a crop top rather than a crown? Many people in Thailand are outraged by the skimpy outfits their monarch, King Vajiralongkorn, loves to wear. And they're also furious at other aspects of his outlandish lifestyle - his womanising, his alleged brutality and the fact he seems to prefer the crisp air of the Bavarian Alps to the stifling humidity of Bangkok. Tom Steinfort reports that there is also the small matter of Fufu, the pet poodle the king controversially appointed as the chief marshall of Thailand's air force. Bananarama When you first think about it, it is utterly bananas that a band with such a silly name could go so far. Even Bananarama's founding members, Keren Woodward and Sara Dallin, think so.

But as Liam Bartlett discovers in a charming interview with Keren and Sara, Bananarama's success is not nuts at all. It's all about having the talent to make some of pop's most memorable songs, combined with the energy needed to smash through the music industry's glass ceiling.

The White Island Disaster It's a terrible truth to have to acknowledge. The White Island volcano in New Zealand is not only spectacular but spectacularly dangerous. One awful afternoon last December, it erupted, seemingly without warning. Forty-seven tourists and guides, who up until the catastrophic explosion had only been thinking of adventure, were stranded on the island. All suffered injuries, and 21 died. Now, for the first time, Australian survivors talk about that tragic day and its devastating aftermath. They tell Sarah Abo it is a miracle that more people weren't killed. But they also express their anger and ask questions about why they were allowed to visit such a perilous location in the first place, and why efforts to rescue them were flawed.
