For the past 35 years, twins have been some of the most carefully studied people in Australia. Seventy-five thousand twins have been revealing the secrets of how much we inherit from our parents and in what ways our experience shapes who we become. Researchers are trying to understand what determines their personalities, makes them succeed at a school or even live longer. It turns out that twins research is confounding simple conclusions about what makes us who we are. We are a complex interplay of genes and environment. In fact revealing the secrets of this extraordinary group of people, may just help all of us live a longer, healthier life.

It has been 10 years since Kevin Rudd made his famous speech on February 13, 2008, in the federal Parliament when he formally apologised to Indigenous Australians for the forced removal of children from their families, also known as the Stolen Generations. It was a historic moment in the nation's history and a moment that Indigenous Australians had been waiting on for many years. Karla Grant sits down with the former Australian prime minister as he reflects on his life, time in office, the apology, the current state of Indigenous affairs, and what needs to be done to see real improvements in the lives of our First Nations people.

Off Australia's north-east coast lies a wonder of the world; a living structure so big it can be seen from space, more intricate and complex than any city, and so diverse it hosts a third of all fish species in Australia. The Great Barrier Reef as we know it - 8000 years old and home to thousands of marine species - is dying in our lifetime. Can We Save the Reef? is the epic story of Australian and international scientists who are racing to understand our greatest natural wonder, and employing bold new science to save it.

When Paul Pritchard returned to Tasmania's majestic Totem Pole rock pillar three months ago it was the culmination of an 18-year journey. The former professional climber and writer suffered a massive injury in 1998 when his rope dislodged a large rock, which fell on his head. He was saved by the actions of his former girlfriend who hauled him 30 metres up to a ledge before running for help. In a second stroke of luck, the paramedic on duty that day was also a climber. Neale Smith's decision to short-circuit a cliff rescue and abseil with Paul down to a waiting boat almost certainly saved his life. The aftermath of the accident led to a new awakening for Paul and he describes it now as 'the best thing that ever happened to me'. This year he returned to the place that nearly killed him. With only one half of his body functioning properly, the stakes were high. This time, surrounded by friends, he made it to the top.

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.

Mal and Mike Leyland were pioneers of outback documentary-making, first setting off to Central Australia in 1960. Mal was just 15 and Mike 19. Their television shows in the 1970s and '80s were so popular that their theme song, Ask The Leyland Brothers, remains familiar to millions of viewers today. But when Mal and Mike decided to branch out into the tourist industry by building their own theme park, Leyland Brothers World, disaster struck and both were bankrupted. The brothers fell out and went their separate ways. Sometime before Mike Leyland's death in 2009, they reconciled but Mal Leyland continues to have regrets. Sourcing rich archival footage, this program tells the inside story of the Leyland's rise and fall, and of their final days together.
