If you live in the bush it's hard to get the same level of medical care as you can in the city, but now a doctor has come up with an ambitious idea to change all that. Rolf Gomes started his working life as an electrical engineer before turning to medicine. The first time he saw a beating heart, with its 'valves and plumbing and electrics', he was 'hooked'. Then, as a young registrar in country hospitals, he experienced first-hand the challenges of trying to diagnose and treat patients without the specialist and diagnostic services that people in the city take for granted. As a cardiologist Dr Gomes had identified the problem, but as an engineer he sought to solve it. He came up with the idea of a mobile clinic - 'the heart bus' - while running his own cardiology practice in Brisbane. 'The heart bus' travels from town to town, treating patients and giving them a much better chance of surviving heart disease. Now, Dr Gomes has bigger plans to expand his service and include more medical specialties.

Into The Fog Of War Part Two - EXCLUSIVE This week we continue our compelling two-part program giving a powerful insight into one of the most controversial cases in Australian military history. At the centre of the story is Dave, a highly skilled commando in the Army Reserve. In February 2009, whilst on a capture-or-kill mission looking for Taliban, his unit raided a family compound in the middle of the night in Afghanistan. Six people, including five children, were killed. For the first time, Dave and other members of the unit give their account of the night and its aftermath. Dave and another soldier were subsequently charged with manslaughter of the five children and faced the possibility of a court martial and 20 years in prison. These charges were later dismissed. Since then, details of the operation have been shrouded in secrecy. What happened has been a tragedy for everyone - for Dave, his fellow commandos and, most of all, for the Afghan families who lost so much.

Antibiotics have saved millions of lives, but their misuse and overuse is making them less effective as bacteria develop resistance. Despite scientists warnings, antibiotic prescriptions in many countries continue to soar and antibiotic use in farming is at record levels. As a result, doctors are now seeing infections they can no longer treat. Are we facing the end of modern medicine? An antibiotic apocalypse that takes medicine back to the Dark Ages? Or will researchers outwit the incredibly clever bacteria and find novel ways to beat resistance

Dassi Erlich and her two sisters are a formidable force. Their ongoing battle to extradite former headmistress Malka Leifer from Israel to face sexual abuse allegations in Australia has made headlines across the globe. But despite the public attention, the personal stories of the three sisters have remained largely private. In the first program of a two-part special, Nicole Meyer and Elly Sapper give their first Australian interviews and, together with Dassi, speak candidly about their time at the Adass Israel school in Melbourne. The program also features extracts from Dassi Erlich's teenage diary which provide a haunting account of her traumatic childhood. Introduced by Ted Baillieu, former premier of Victoria.
