John Guthrie and Dennis Cash never wanted kids. In fact, they had never even discussed the idea. But 20 years ago, an ad in the local paper made them stop and think - did they have what it takes to foster a child? Ignoring the doubts of friends and overcoming their own misgivings about how they may be perceived as a same sex couple, they decided to become foster parents. And, despite a rocky start and some bumps along the way, 'the daughters' and 'their Dads' have morphed into a remarkable 21st-century family. After two decades of fostering and mentoring teenage girls from diverse backgrounds, including Africa and Afghanistan, John and Dennis are the proud fathers of a growing family. In this intimate tale of domestic life, we hear what it's like to foster and be fostered - the pratfalls, the pitfalls and the complicated joys that only family can bring.

Explore the music tied to some of the most iconic moments in history - from the March on Washington to the riots at Stonewall, the moon landing to Hurricane Katrina - music has played an integral part in celebrating, criticising, and amplifying seismic events in collective history. September 11, 2001, forever lives in infamy for New Yorkers and all Americans. Billy Joel's New York State of Mind and Sister Sledge's We Are Family took on heightened new meaning of camaraderie. But the tragedy that united the country quickly divided it. Country music took centre stage as the politically charged music of the moment - with patriotism in the case of Brooks and Dunn, or in a pro-war message in the case of Toby Keith. When the Dixie Chicks found themselves caught in the crossfire after upsetting their fan base, it became clear that the wounds of 9/11 weren't quick to heal.

Gavin Larkin was the ultimate alpha male: a highly successful advertising executive with friends in high places. But there was a problem with his seemingly perfect life. He was, as he says himself, "a bit of a prick" and he was deeply unhappy. Gavin decided to change, and in 2009, he used his marketing nous and his high-profile contacts to create R U OK? Day, a national day of action to prevent suicide. But not long after the launch, the super-fit, indomitable Gavin was anything but okay. He died of cancer just after marking R U OK?'s third successful campaign. R U OK? Day has become one of the nation's most embraced days of action. Six years after we first aired the story of Gavin Larkin, we return to his family to see how Gavin's extraordinary legacy has helped sustain them through their grief.

Heritier Lumumba, formerly known as Harry O'Brien, was in the middle of his best season of AFL when his club president, Eddie McGuire, made a racist on-air comment, suggesting that Sydney Swans player Adam Goodes could be used to promote a King Kong musical.

What followed was a media storm and an on-air showdown with McGuire which painted Lumumba as an overly PC, hyper-sensitive villain.
