The epic size and industrial scale of the new Asian drug supply is staggering. Intercepts of the methamphetamine Ice or the ingredients necessary for its manufacture are toted up in tonnages and megalitres. But given authorities only manage to uncover a fraction of the trade that begins in Myanmar, pours into China and flows on to places like Australia, then a deadly dangerous drug is in overwhelming flood. Foreign Correspondent concludes its investigation of The Other China Boom, tracing a disturbing trail all the way to Australia's front door.

There are some questions we hope we will never have to answer. But what would you do if you suffered from a debilitating illness that left you in constant and severe pain? What would you do if the only way you could find relief was to take heavy duty pain killers that also impacted heavily on your physical health? After 36 years struggling with that situation, a young man says he's had enough and he wants to end his own life. Because assisted suicide, or voluntary euthanasia, is illegal in Australia he is forced to apply to an organisation in a foreign country to fulfil his wish.

The black Hondas of the local security services followed him from city to city, village to village. For China correspondent Stephen McDonell, this report was proving a difficult assignment. But in China these days, this is what happens when the story is about a group which is making the Communist Party very nervous.

Reporter Stephen Long navigates his way through the arguments, exploring the business case and the technological requirements for our 'wired' future. Is it nation building? Will it be the 21st century equivalent to building the national railway network, or simply an overpriced public monopoly-stifling competition?

The story of America's most controversial prison and the impact it had on the lives of its inmates and the people who held them captive. For six years the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba was a key facility in George W. Bush's war on terror. Remote from the American mainland, it was the place where so called "hostile enemy combatants" were taken to be interrogated in the hope they would assist officials in the fight against terrorism. At its peak the prison held over 550 prisoners. In 2009 the then newly elected American President Barack Obama signed a document that was intended to close the facility. Two years on his orders have not been finally acted on.

The story of Kibworth reaches the catastrophic 14th century. The village goes through the worst famine in European history, and then, as revealed in the astonishing village archive in Merton College Oxford, two thirds of the people die in the Black Death. Helped by today's villagers - field walking and reading the historical texts - and by the local schoolchildren digging archaeological test pits, Michael Wood follows stories of individual lives through these times, out of which the English idea of community and the English character begin to emerge.
