The opening sequence shows a divide between the gentle, lavish and privately educated lifestyle of the wealthy, and the chaotic, harsh and publically educated environment of the poor. This classist motif reoccurs throughout the film. The lead character, Erica Yurken, is not from the gentle world of tennis and ballerinas, but the harsh world of graffiti and bullies. She is instantly drawn to the new teacher, Ms Belmont, who vows to crush the infamous 9C classroom into shape.

Two pairs of strangers are dropped in the Bermuda Triangle with one goal: survive on a life raft with no food or water. Episode Four: To the Bone On the orange raft, professional sailor Ceci Hindley is teamed up with a true fish out of water, Dan Eller. Ceci soon comes through for her raftmate, catching and gutting a triggerfish, and the duo decides to make a fire to cook their catch. But while Dan lights the fire, Ceci cuts open her finger. With the fire burning out of control, and Ceci's finger gushing blood, the orange raft faces serious peril. On the yellow raft, former NFL linebacker David Vobora and former police officer Jackie Person appear to be a promising team. But the constant wetness and frigid nights prove to be nearly unmanageable for Jackie, who begs David to let her tap out. With a partner on the verge of submission, David puts all his energy toward catching a fish, and his body soon wears down. While diving underwater, he endures a paralyzing leg cramp, and finds himself flailing for his life in the open ocean. (From the US) (Documentary Series) PG Follow the conversation on Twitter: #SBS2

This is a look into the events that laid the foundation for Australia in the 21st Century. Between 1919 and 1939 Australia turned from a rural backwater of the British Empire to a South East Asian nation. Award-winning journalist and author Chris Masters investigates the tumultuous 1920s and 30s and tells the story of parents, grandparents and great-grandparents who survived crisis after crisis and laid the groundwork for the nation we know today. In Australian mythology nationhood was forged in the slaughter of Gallipoli in 1915. But in The Years That Made Us, Chris Masters introduces a very different proposition. Far from bringing the nation together, the First World War tore the country apart and threatened to destroy the Federation dream. The Great Depression wrecked a struggling recovery and just when light appeared on the horizon the gates of hell reopened with the Second World War. The 21 years between the First and Second World Wars saw the world change faster than at any other time in history. The eruption of Communism and Fascism and the Great Depression were the big picture backdrops to extraordinary changes in culture and technology. The changes brought about in the vast desert continent were unique. In a personal journey that takes in big-picture history and his own family's story, Chris explores the idea that Australia's response to the tumultuous 21 years was unlike that of any other country.

A 100-million-year-old dinosaur mystery embedded in stone in remote Australia is about to be opened by a team of international scientists from Australia, Spain, the United States and Scotland. Thousands of dinosaur footprints etched in rock at a site near Winton, Queensland point to one terrifying moment, the only known dinosaur stampede on the planet. But no one has ever established what these dinosaurs were, why they were all there and why did they run in one direction. Is the presence of a monstrous track proof of a new prehistoric killer?
