Marshall Curry's documentary tells a timely story of political action and environmental beliefs at loggerheads. His reconstruction of the recent history and unravelling of the Earth Liberation Front (ELF) is a fascinating exploration of a modern revolutionary movement and its efficacy. Fusing fervent concerns about ecological imbalance and capitalism run amok, ELF members and sleeper cells destroyed facilities involved in deforestation to remove the profit potential from companies wreaking environmental destruction.

Everybody knows the names of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin but America's journey into space is much bigger than that. It was the result of the blood, sweat and tears of thousands of men and women who worked behind the scenes in crucial ways - ordinary people who had 'the big idea'. Men and women who could watch the launch of rockets, the voyages of spaceships and the building of the international space station and know it wouldn't have happened without them. This is the story of the unsung heroes who took America into space. This episode looks at the engineers who, against all odds, built humanity's most powerful machine - the Saturn V rocket.

A documentary chronicling the Cocos Keeling Islands - where Muslims outnumber Christians by more than five to one, and the Southern Star and the Islamic crescent moon sit side by side on the islands' flag. As Australian strategists eye up the value of the Cocos as a military outpost, the locals are forced to confront that their lives are in the hands of a government almost 6000km away in Canberra, and they are part of a country that barely even knows they exist. The Cocos Islanders respond by formulating a plan that will ensure they have a voice in determining the future of their homeland. All it requires is for the man who expected to become the next 'King of the Cocos' to collaborate closely with the Malay people whose ancestors treated virtually like slaves. What could possibly go wrong?
