As one half of famed media duo 'Jono & Dano', Ian 'Dano' Rogerson enjoyed a decade-long run in the 1980s with top-rating radio shows and a string of national television programs. But while Jonathan Coleman went on to forge a career in Britain, Ian Rogerson all but disappeared from the media spotlight. Why would you jettison a successful media career? In Ian Rogerson's case, it was because of his young son, Jack. Diagnosed with autism as a toddler, Jack Rogerson was hyperactive, could barely speak and was unable to express ordinary affection. Like many parents of autistic children, Ian and his wife Nicole were left struggling to find their way.

Mark Kennedy was Britain's longest-serving and most controversial undercover police officer. For eight years he lived a remarkable double-life, infiltrating Europe's far-left extremist political groups and environmental campaigners. Now, with his cover blown, he lives in fear for his life. His former 'friends' in the protest movement say he's a traitorous agent provocateur who set them up. His police bosses say he's 'gone native', and his wife has disowned him.

Jeffrey Dahmer was a homosexual sexual deviant 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.

Ian Conway is a man determined to make a difference. Twenty years ago he made a promise to an Aboriginal elder. It was a big promise and for years Ian was haunted by the fact that he hadn't delivered. His commitment was partly motivated by his own early years as a homeless child in the camps around Alice Springs. Despite the toughest of starts in life, Ian Conway went to school and even became a prefect. Many years later, after carving a station out of of the bush in Central Australia and creating a successful tourist enterprise, he finally turned his mind to the 'unfinished business' of his promise to his friend.

In the history of sports, few names are more recognisable than that of Evel Knievel. Long after the man hung up his famous white leather jumpsuit and rode his Harley into the sunset, his name is still synonymous with the death-defying lifestyle he led. Notoriously brash, bold and daring, Knievel stared death in the face, but few know the larger-than-life story of the boy from Butte, Montana. Academy Award-winning filmmaker Daniel Junge and actor-producer Johnny Knoxville take a candid look at the American daredevil and icon.

Forty years after it happened, this is the never before told true story of the courage and compassion, the heartbreak and heroes of the Granville Train Disaster. For the first time, survivors and rescuers are reunited to recall the fateful moments on January 18, 1977 when a regular train ride from the Blue Mountains to work, a shopping trip to the city or a school holiday adventure instead became a journey that would end as Australia's worst rail tragedy. The full story behind the crash of the 6.09am Mount Victoria service to Central Station, Sydney, which derailed and brought down Granville's Bold Street Bridge, crushing two crowded carriages and eventually claiming 83 lives.

Four years ago Australian Story featured a farmer and horse breeder called Peter Andrews who seemed to have a rare ability to transform degraded Australian landscapes into thriving oases.

But for nearly thirty years, Peter Andrews' work was rejected by scientists, bureaucrats and politicians alike - until the evidence became difficult to ignore.

When Justin Yerbury's family members began to die from motor neurone disease he made a life-changing decision. He turned his back on a professional basketball career and enrolled in a science degree. Almost 20 years later, he is an internationally recognised expert on the disease, leading the way in the search for a treatment. Recently, however, Justin's work took on a terrible urgency as he too developed symptoms of MND. As Australian Story filmed with Justin and his family, his condition deteriorated dramatically, requiring difficult decisions to enable him to continue his search for a cure. Having met Justin in 2017, Professor Stephen Hawking recorded the introduction to this story shortly before his death from motor neurone disease.

Is Asperger's syndrome the next stage of human evolution? Professor Tony Attwood believes the "out of the box" thought processes of people on the autism spectrum will solve the world's big problems. He is credited with being the first clinical psychologist to present Asperger's syndrome not as something to be "fixed " but as a gift, evidenced in many of the great inventors and artists throughout history. Professor Attwood is highly regarded for his ability to connect with and bring out the talents of people with Asperger's. He describes himself as a translator between the "neurotypical" and Asperger's worlds. But while Professor Attwood has reached the top of his field, he reveals on Australian Story the personal cost of a missed diagnosis in his own family. Early in his career, he didn't see the signs of Asperger's in his son Will. The consequences were devastating for everyone.

Concluding the story of Dassi Erlich and her two sisters, who are fighting to extradite their former headmistress from Israel to face sexual abuse charges. After the alleged abuse against the three sisters came to light in 2008, principal Malka Leifer was stood down by the Adass Israel school which facilitated her immediate departure to Israel. Although Australian authorities have been trying to extradite her for several years Malka Leifer convinced the Israeli courts she was too mentally unwell to face a hearing. That prompted an undercover operation to prove her mental fitness which recently resulted in Malka Leifer's return to jail. For Dassi and her two sisters - Nicole and Elly - justice finally seems closer than ever before.

Leading The Way Graham Long’s decision to retire presented a real challenge for Sydney's Wayside Chapel. How best to replace a visionary pastor who had served the city's homeless and vulnerable for 14 years? When Graham took over as pastor in 2004, the iconic Sydney institution had gone to wrack and ruin. Under his leadership, it grew from a crumbling drop-in centre for the homeless to a vibrant community offering a range of services for those in need. Graham always remembered a young social worker-turned-pastor he had met in Western Sydney. Jon Owen had thrown in a comfortable middle-class existence in Melbourne to move his family to Sydney's Mt Druitt and run a mini version of the Wayside from his lounge room. Jon joined Wayside Chapel as assistant Pastor in 2016, and after a robust international search, he successfully won the role as CEO and Pastor in 2018. Now installed as the new pastor, Jon is proving a popular choice, bringing generational change and continuing the same unconditional love that the Wayside is famous for.

Dassi Erlich and her two sisters are a formidable force. Their ongoing battle to extradite former headmistress Malka Leifer from Israel to face sexual abuse allegations in Australia has made headlines across the globe. But despite the public attention, the personal stories of the three sisters have remained largely private. In the first program of a two-part special, Nicole Meyer and Elly Sapper give their first Australian interviews and, together with Dassi, speak candidly about their time at the Adass Israel school in Melbourne. The program also features extracts from Dassi Erlich's teenage diary which provide a haunting account of her traumatic childhood. Introduced by Ted Baillieu, former premier of Victoria.
