Bill Clinton's presidency got off to a rocky start. The most consequential of his initial missteps was his inability to reform America's health care system. As a result, the Republicans, led by Congressman Newt Gingrich gained control of both houses of Congress for the first time in decades. In addition to political problems at home, President Clinton faced military disaster in Somalia, genocide in Rwanda and ethnic cleansing in Bosnia. But as he always seemed to do, Clinton rebounded and was decisively re-elected in 1996. Just as the nation seemed to be settling into a period of genuine peace and prosperity the president was ensnared in a sex scandal with a White House intern leading to impeachment and increased political polarisation.
Where would we be without Google, Amazon, PayPal, eBay and Match.com? How about email? So many things woven through the fabric of contemporary life began in the 1990s and none would have a bigger impact than the internet and the world wide web. Bill Gates and Microsoft dominated the decade and Steve Jobs returned to Apple.

This series examines milestones from the 1990s, including the rise of the internet and the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.

The Simpsons got a show of their own, while Beavis and Butthead lived in a world of their own. Storylines got younger (Freaks and Geeks, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and formats more daring (Northen Exposure, The Daily Show).
Explore the music tied to some of the most iconic moments in history - from the March on Washington to the riots at Stonewall, the moon landing to Hurricane Katrina - music has played an integral part in celebrating, criticising, and amplifying seismic events in collective history. September 11, 2001, forever lives in infamy for New Yorkers and all Americans. Billy Joel's New York State of Mind and Sister Sledge's We Are Family took on heightened new meaning of camaraderie. But the tragedy that united the country quickly divided it. Country music took centre stage as the politically charged music of the moment - with patriotism in the case of Brooks and Dunn, or in a pro-war message in the case of Toby Keith. When the Dixie Chicks found themselves caught in the crossfire after upsetting their fan base, it became clear that the wounds of 9/11 weren't quick to heal.

The 1990s was a decade of great musical diversity. Genre begat subgenre to appeal to nearly every musical taste. Grunge, alternative and indie rock were dominant. The focus of hip-hop migrated west with gangsta rap.

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.
Race relations are a perpetual and prominent part of the American political and cultural conversation, and never more so than in the 1990s. Beginning with the unavoidable racial overtone of the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill hearings, the '90s saw a succession of individuals and events - Al Sharpton and the Crown Height riots, Rodney King and the LA riots, OJ Simpson and his murder trial - that exposed how raw race relations in America remained. New York elected its first black mayor (David Dinkins) and Louisiana nearly elected a former Grand Wizard of the Klu Klux Klan as governor (David Duke). LA street gangs exerted cultural influence over music, movies and fashion. Even two of President Bill Clinton's chief legislative achievements, The Crime Bill of 1994 and the Welfare Reform bill of 1996 were laden with racial politics. Progress was made in America's struggle with racial equality but a price was paid.
