Jeffrey Dahmer was a serial killer who raped, murdered and ate parts of 17 victims. Like other killers such as John Wayne Gacy, he managed to elude capture while continuing to carry out his crimes. Like every other sociopath serial killer in history he believed himself to be completely justified in his actions. Why does a Jeffrey Dahmer happen? How does a man become a serial killer, necrophiliac, cannibal and psychopath? Many of the theories would have you believe that the answers can always be found in childhood abuse, bad parenting, head trauma, foetal alcoholism and drug addiction. Perhaps in some cases these are contributing factors, but not for Jeffrey Dahmer.

Few people had heard of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) - the brutal jihadist group that President Obama calls a "network of death." How did ISIS become a major force so quickly? And what does it mean for the US to be back in Iraq, fighting a new war on terror, less than three years after American troops pulled out of the country? These are all questions which ultimately affect Australia and the government's decision of whether or not to send troops back to Iraq. This documentary is a major, in-depth investigation of the brutal terrorist group's ascent, from veteran journalist Martin Smith, who has been documenting the Iraq conflict since 2003.
