Comedian and writer Shaun Micallef is on a quest to find the very meaning of life itself. Envious of those with 'unshakeable faith', Shaun journeys across the globe immersing himself into some of the world's most unique religions and beliefs. In this episode, Shaun starts his spiritual adventure with church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. In their heartland of Salt Lake City, Shaun eats, prays an dlives with the Mormons through privileged access into a usually closed world. He works with young missionary Mormons sent off to the jungles of Fiji, and bunks in with breakaway fundamentalist polygamists in the deserts of Uta. Shaun wants to understand this devout faith so entwined with the development of the USA, and centred around the remarkable contents of the Book of Mormon.

Pompeii: one of the most famous volcanic eruptions in history. We know how its victims died, but this film sets out to answer another question - how did they live? Gleaning evidence from an extraordinary find, Cambridge professor and Pompeii expert Mary Beard provides new insight into the lives of the people who lived in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius before its cataclysmic eruption. Using the latest forensic techniques it is now possible to determine what those who perished in the disaster ate and drank, where they came from, what diseases they suffered, how rich they were and, perhaps even more astonishingly, the details of their sex lives. Mary takes us on journey from the cellar to a small ancient town which nevertheless boasted more than 50 fast food joints, dozens of rowdy bars, a 200-foot-long swimming pool and even its own brothel. The film opens the lid on this most famous of ancient towns to reveal Pompeii as it's never been seen before.

In the 1780s France was the richest nation on Earth. It also boasted an exploding national debt and an increasingly restless middle class. On July 14, 1789, a ragtag mob of Parisians stormed the fortress of the Bastille to seize the King's arms and ammunition. This set loose a decade of revolutionary ideals and a murderous cycle of carnage - the French Revolution, that would shake the very foundations of monarchy, destroy the last vestiges of feudalism, plant the seeds for modern politics, diplomacy and nationalism - and plunge an entire continent into endless warfare for a generation to come.

One in five Australians has experienced racism in the last 12 months according to one of the biggest ever surveys conducted on racism and prejudice in Australia, commissioned by SBS with the Western Sydney University. Ray Martin investigates the question: Is Australia Racist? This one hour documentary puts survey findings into action through a series of hidden camera social experiments, capturing the experience of racism through the eyes of those who have suffered it. The results are at times confronting, but 'Is Australia Racist?' also reveals inspiring Australians facing up to racism and standing up when witnessing discrimination.

Necessity is the mother of invention - from darkness, man found light (the candle) and from even the farthest distances we can still find each other (the telephone). But some inventions have transformed our lives far beyond our homes (the steam engine), our planet (the telescope), and our wildest dreams (the internet).
