Host Karla Grant sat down with the former Australian prime minister as he reflects on his life, time in office, the apology, the current state of Indigenous affairs, and what needs to be done to see real improvements in the lives of our First Nations people.

Tony and the Team join a group of archaeologists as they dig the site of William Shakespeare's house, New Place, in Stratford-upon-Avon. There's little of it above ground now, but records show it was Tudor Stratford's biggest private home, with up to 20 rooms and a dozen servants. However, in 1702, New Place was demolished to make way for a grand Georgian pile. That Georgian house sat right on the street, so for the last hundred years or more, it's been assumed that it was also the site of New Place. But a recently discovered document casts doubt on that theory. With the site now accessible, the archaeologists aim to show for the first time not only where Shakespeare really did live with his family but also how grand his house was. And that raises two intriguing questions about Shakespeare: Why did he want such a grand home? And where on earth did he get the money from?

A star studded account of Oscar Wilde's glittering and controversial career before his trial for homosexual crimes and tragic fall from grace. Highlights from Oscar's brilliant comedies such as The Importance of Being Earnest and stories such as The Picture of Dorian Gray and The Canterville Ghost are adapted and performed by a cast including Freddie Fox, Claire Skinner, Anna Chancellor and James Fleet. Wilde enthusiasts and experts including Stephen Fry , Wilde's grandson Merlin Holland, and his latest biographers provide revelatory accounts of how his own life informed his work. His Irish roots, his early career, his marriage and the importance of women as well as men in his life all combine in a complex and compelling characterisation and celebration that adds flesh to the bones of a man who is too often caricatured.
