An investigation that exposes the way children are used to produce the raw materials that drive a multi-billion dollar industry. Cocoa beans are the basic ingredients of chocolate. They are one of the most heavily traded commodities in the world. In Europe, major chocolate makers have signed up to Fairtrade programs, claiming some of their products are made without abusive labour practices. Now the BBC's Paul Kenyon, posing as a cocoa bean buyer, puts those claims to the test, revealing the Fairtrade seal of approval on chocolate is not all always what it appears to be.

They're the little children who somehow survived the devastating cataclysm that shattered and crushed one of the world's poorest countries - Haiti. Some were already orphans, many more would be made so by the earthquake. The epic quake brought an unimaginable toll and while the outside world tried to help, what could possibly be done for the smallest and most vulnerable?

Giant catfish the size of family refrigerators hide in the depths with 1200 other species of exotic wildlife. Further downstream are rare and mysterious freshwater dolphins. Communities frame their lives around what the river provides: food, jobs, transport - or if you're a bunch of laughing children - a skylarking dip in the backyard splash pool. By the time the Amazon of Asia - the mighty Mekong River - reaches Laos it's already been put to serious use by the Chinese and now the little landlocked communist nation wants to do the same, big-time.

This is the story of the the greatest financial crisis we will ever see. The one that is on its way. Have you maxed out your credit card? Bought shares with borrowed money? Taken out a large home loan believing that prices always go up? Then you may be living on borrowed time. Filmmaker Martin Borgs takes a provocative look at the events leading up the Global Financial Crisis and asks if the attempts to avoid a ruinous collapse of banks and other major finance houses may set the world on the path to an even bigger meltdown.

Twelve months ago no one was predicting Julia Gillard or Tony Abbott would lead their respective parties into a Federal election. Now they are involved in the political fight of their lives. Both have moved to re-invent themselves, ditching policies they once endorsed. Four Corners looks at the election battle so far. Reporter Marian Wilkinson talks extensively to both leaders. She looks at the promises, the policies and the back-flips and asks: are these leaders really seeking to lead, or are they simply telling voters what they believe they want to hear?

If your children had been snatched by your partner and taken overseas you'd hope the law would be on your side and the authorities would do everything in their power to retrieve them. Well, not if they've been taken to one particular country with an infamous reputation for protecting kidnappers. Japan has become a refuge for nationals who've swiped their children from homes around the world and the catalogue of heartbreak is enormous.
