It's impossible to ignore the fact that Australia is in the middle of a severe water crisis. So this week, The New Inventors will dive into the world of water-saving to look at how Australian inventors are taking action to conserve this precious resource. We also re-visit previous water-saving inventions to see where they have ended up. Plus, we'll expose "The Water Diaries" kept by host James O'Loghlin and the panel to find out who is the most conservative when it comes to water usage.

Nunavut, in the Canadian Far North, is home to many treasures: gold, iron, diamond and uranium. As logistics and transport become easier, the attraction for industrial and mining corporations to prospect and exploit becomes stronger. A new El Dorado is emerging in the small towns in the area, pushing up the cost of living, often at the expense of the local Inuit community.
