This week concludes the two-part exclusive story about Luke Davies - poet, novelist and Oscar-nominated screenwriter of the hit movie Lion. Having pulled himself from the depths of heroin addiction at the beginning of 1990, Luke set about rebuilding his life and career. He wrote Candy, a semi-autobiographical account of his relationship with Megan Bannister and their years of addiction. A film adaptation followed, starring Heath Ledger and Abbie Cornish. Luke then gambled everything on a move to Los Angeles. However, he struggled to find work and became increasingly debilitated by the effects of hepatitis C, a legacy of his heroin addiction. In the past two years, however, Luke has experienced a dramatic change of fortune both personally and professionally. With his Oscar nomination for Lion, a film about motherly love, there was no question who he would take to the ceremony - his own mother, Joan, who had supported him unfailingly through all his highs and lows. Australian Story accompanied Luke and Joan to the Oscars and filmed with him extensively in Los Angeles and Sydney. Featuring candid interviews with Luke's parents and former partners, as well actors Dev Patel (Lion), Joel Edgerton, Jacki Weaver and Alex O'Loughlin, directors Neil Armfield and David Michod, and producer Emile Sherman, this is a remarkable story of redemption.

Forever enshrined in myth by an assassin's bullet, John F Kennedy's presidency has often defied objective appraisal. This portrait offers a fresh assessment of the man, his accomplishments and his unfulfilled promise. This film features interviews with Kennedy family members and historians including Robert Dallek, Robert Caro, and Evan Thomas. Beginning with Kennedy's childhood years as the privileged but sickly second son of one of the wealthiest men in America, the film explores his early political career as a lacklustre congressman, his successful run for the US Senate, and the game-changing presidential campaign that made him the youngest elected president in US history. This probing, definitive biography provides a fresh look at an enigmatic man who has become one of the nation's most beloved and mourned leaders. With the benefit of recently opened archives, this program re-evaluates Kennedy's strengths and weaknesses in the Oval Office as he navigated some of the most explosive events of the mid-20th-century: the disastrous failure at the Bay of Pigs, the urgent demands of an increasingly impatient civil rights movement, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the escalating conflict in Southeast Asia. The film also recounts his struggles with life-threatening illnesses, and his efforts to keep them hidden from the public. This program will offer a new perspective on his complicated private life, including his relationship with his wife, and his close connection to his younger brother, Robert.

The Vietnam War was a decade-long struggle that humbled America. It has never before been told start to finish purely as a first person military chronicle: the raw, horrifying war as experienced by the men who fought it, believing they were there to win. Their experiences revolve around "tipping points", affecting the crucial events that shaped military decisions and, ultimately, determined the outcome of the war. From the rise of Ho Chi Minh in 1959 and the subsequent formation of the Vietcong to the deadly battle in La Drang valley in 1965 through to the quagmire of the Vietnam War in the late 1960s and its eventual conclusion in 1975, no detail is spared in this three-part, back to back special.

This episode, Ben travels north to Alaska, just below the Arctic Circle, to live with Bretwood Higman, Erin McCittrick and their two young children. College sweethearts Bretwood and Erin hiked a monumental 4000 miles to get here. The family now lives for half the year in a self-built Mongolian-style yurt on the mountainside, with the other half spent hiking in the region's spectacular areas of wilderness. Ben joins the family in their tiny coastal village, which has a population of 350. He discovers that such a tough, rugged existence means chopping their own wood for fuel, hauling ice-cold water from an underground well and even getting their plates licked clean by their dog. He also learns some of the outdoor skills essential to surviving in the wild, from chopping trees to mastering storm navigation and protecting himself from potential attack by grizzly bears. Finally, he paddles a tiny raft on the ocean to reach a stunning glacier, although a collapse of the ice is an ever present threat in this unforgiving environment.

The global success of hit movie Lion has made screenwriter Luke Davies one of Hollywood's hottest properties. But the path to success has not been an easy one. An unhealthy fascination with drugs in his teens turned into an obsession by his early twenties. He and partner Megan Bannister plunged into a decade of heroin addiction, a terrible chapter in their lives that Luke would later immortalise in the novel, and then movie, Candy. Megan - the real Candy - gives her account of those years for the first time on camera. Luke's parents also speak for the first time about their anguish at their son's decline. In 1990, after a decade of despair, Luke Davies gave up heroin - a decision that probably saved his life and allowed him to realise his childhood dream of being a writer. Then in 2007 he left Australia to try his luck in Hollywood. After years of financial struggle he struck gold with his script for Lion, winning a BAFTA award and being nominated for an Oscar. This remarkable story of redemption also features candid interviews with actors Dev Patel (Lion), Joel Edgerton, Jacki Weaver and Alex O'Loughlin, directors Neil Armfield and David Michod, and producer Emile Sherman.

This week Australian Story returns to one of our most popular rural programs - the story of a young pastoralist whose dream is to restore his beloved land back to nature after a century of over-stocking for the wool market. David Pollock's radical project to remove income-earning livestock from his historic property, Wooleen, shocked his neighbours. And it might have failed but for the unexpected arrival of Frances Jones, a young woman on a gap year from Melbourne. Together, David and Frances concentrated on creating a tourist ecology haven and finding a non-destructive way to run cattle. In the decade since they started their regeneration project, the grass on Wooleen's semi-arid mulga country, traversed by the Murchison River, is now greener and the river gums are growing for the first time in a century. It made a stunning setting for family, friends and neighbours who came to celebrate the couple's wedding last month. However, some of their regeneration methods are not without controversy, and their latest strategy risks pitting the newlyweds against their neighbours and ostracising them from the community where David grew up.

Dr Christian Jessen (star of Embarrassing Bodies) puts three self-confessed hypochondriacs on the front line of the NHS in the hope of curing their health and anxiety, and transforming them into healthcare assets. The rise in 'health anxiety', as it's now medically known, is linked to ease of access to Dr Google, leading people to self-diagnose and demand treatment and scans for an array of ailments they don't actually have.
