*Adult Themes, Coarse Language* *Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that the following program contains images and voices of people who have died* Cyclone Tracy was one of the worst natural disasters in Australia's history, virtually wiping the city of Darwin from the map. Now 40 years later, previously untold stories reveal compelling new perspectives on the devastating storm, the controversial mass evacuation and the troubled reconstruction, investigating the socio-political effects on Darwin and its residents. Extraordinary archival footage, immersive animation and in-depth interviews tell a powerful story revealing the legacy and myths of Cyclone Tracy including the coming of age of Darwin, the heroism of Darwinians, and the politicisation of the rebuild. The failure of most official records of the disaster to mention Indigenous people is addressed with stories from Aboriginal people who lived through the storm, and accounts of traditional Aboriginal beliefs that explain from a cultural standpoint the cyclone and resulting devastation. PRODUCTION DETAILS: Brindle Films and Nirvana Films. Produced with assistance of Screen Territory in association with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and Screen Australia. Produced by Rachel Clements and James Bradley. ABC Executive Producer and Head of Indigenous Sally Riley.

This special is a nostalgic and insightful story of a 12-year span during which a generation named for the letter X marked its spot, coming of age in an era that straddled the end of a century and the start of a whole new world, one that nobody saw coming. This ground-breaking special event series will show how the last decade before the dawn of the internet - the period between the fall of the Berlin Wall and the destruction of the twin towers on 9/11 - still has a lasting impact on the world. How did the Berlin Wall's tumbling lead to the Arab Spring? How did the first gulf war usher in the era of tabloid news? What does the OJ Simpson Bronco chase tell us about our celebrity-obsessed culture today?

The final of the series looking at changes in the social and cultural fabric of Australia since World War II looks at the Australian soul. Of all the great shifts since the War, perhaps religion has travelled farthest. In the 1940s and 1950s, Australians dutifully attended church and Sunday school and the church had a firm grip on the Australian soul. But from the late 60s, bad boys and girls were finding spiritual fulfilment elsewhere and the churches struggled to keep up.

Narrated by Terence Stamp, this is the story behind one of the world's most loved films, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. It's about three unlikely hero-(ines) who find themselves in a backwater at the arse-end of the world, dare to step out of the shadows in their shimmering sequinned glory and be counted. It's also about how a low-budget Australian film about three 'cocks-in-frocks' changed the course of history and loudly and proudly brought to the world a celebration of gay culture that continues to resonate twenty years later.

Europe has been a battle concept for centuries: it often takes foreign enemies to weld the Europeans together. But for centuries, they were primarily fighting against themselves. It was not until the Enlightenment and the French Revolution of 1789 that a new idea of Europe emerged based on common values: freedom, equality, and fraternalism. But before these ideas prevail, exaggerated nationalism drove Europeans into two devastating world wars.

Rock 'n' roll, civil rights and Vietnam usher in new talents, many trained by the retiring masters, taking musical theatre in daring new directions with innovative productions like Hair, the first Broadway musical with an entire score of rock music.
