Everyone's favourite almost-functional Asian Australian family, the Laws, are back for a second season. After a summer to remember, Jenny Law and Danny Law have amicably parted ways, and a wiser, more mature Benjamin now understands that sometimes, parents just work better apart. After Jenny sees how well Danny is doing post-divorce, she over-invests in Benjamin's campaign to become middle school captain but overshoots the mark, triggering a rupture in their relationship and unearthing uncomfortable truths about her place in the world.

Meet the Laws; a sprawling Chinese-Australian family who are unlike any you have ever seen before, yet might also be strangely more familiar than you'd expect. Based on the hit memoir of the same name, and written by Benjamin Law and Marieke Hardy. Much like the Law family itself, this is a series that is funny and messy, awkward, cringe-worthy, and overflowing with heart.

The Great Wall is the spectacular historic embodiment of China stretching thousands of miles across barren deserts and treacherous mountains before finally plunging into the sea, all to defend the nation from the rest of the world. The Great Wall, the symbol of China itself, has been the focus of much of this remarkable archaeological activity. As new discoveries on the Great Wall are revealed, our understanding of this amazing structure and its origins, functions and significance - both as a political border, a statement of power and a military defence line - continues to grow.
