When Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took their first steps on the moon in July 1969, the world was suddenly split into two categories - those who believe in the Apollo 11 landings, and those who do not. We will investigate both sides of this debate - 52 percent of the British public still believe the landings were an elaborate hoax designed to trump Russia in the space race. We will search for a definitive answer by recreating the moon landing for ourselves, testing the various competing theories against each other. Featuring interviews with leading experts, conspiracy theorists, archive material and highly detailed reconstructions of the landing, we put this debate to bed once and for all.

Because rabbits are not native to Australia, they have been known to wreak havoc on native plants and, with how quickly they breed, they can be a negative factor among Australia's wildlife. Rabbits are currently banned in Queensland and extreme measures were taken to clear them out for good many years ago. Now, some are proposing special circumstances where rabbits might be brought into the country and kept as pets.
