CARBON AD There's been a lot of controversy this week over a new TV ad. It's not selling a product... instead it's selling an idea. The ad uses celebrities to try to convince people that a carbon tax is a good thing. But why go to the expense of trying to gain people's support... when the government's already made up its mind? LIVE EXPORTS There's been a lot of talk lately about whether Australia should be exporting livestock like sheep and cattle overseas. Some shocking vision has come out showing animals being treated badly. Now, some people want livestock exports banned. RIPPED OFF? Consumer group Choice says Australian shoppers are being ripped off. It says the same item of shopping can often be bought overseas for much less. So how do shops justify charging higher prices in Australia, and what can we do about it? TV CAMERA TV cameras used to be large, heavy... and difficult to move around. But now, thanks to new technology, they're a lot easier to use. And it might surprise you to learn they don't even need a person to operate them! Sean's gone behind the scenes to find out how we use cameras to make the news. CONDUCTOR They're one of the key players in an orchestra... but this person doesn't even make a noise. And they don't belong with woodwind, brass, strings OR percussion. We're talking about the conductor. It's an unusual job... and as Tash found out, there's a lot more to conducting than waving around a baton.

JAPAN KIDS We look at how Japanese school kids are coping after a massive earthquake and tsunami hit their country. We also see how they are able to continue with their normal lives in the middle of such tragedy. NUCLEAR POWER The earthquake and tsunami may only be the start of the trouble facing Japan. The disaster has caused explosions at a nuclear plant, and there are concerns that it could threaten the health of people living nearby. It's reignited the debate about the safety of nuclear technology, and it's a debate that has significance in Australia.
