The US and its allies, including Australia, invaded Iraq ten years ago to end the regime of terror of Saddam Hussein. But did they end up sponsoring the use of some of the same torture methods themselves? In this disturbing investigation by Guardian Films and BBC Arabic, it's revealed how a retired US colonel played a key role in training and overseeing US-funded special police commandos who ran a network of torture centres in Iraq. When it was aired in the UK recently, the program made international headlines.

For nearly a decade Australian political leaders have been at war over the best way to tackle climate change. Former Liberal leader Malcolm Turnbull was the first casualty. He lost his job because he supported a price on carbon. The former Labor Prime Minister Kevin Rudd was next to go, after his polls collapsed when he dropped his plan to put a price on carbon. Now Prime Minister Julia Gillard faces an electoral revolt led by activists who say she doesn't have a mandate to introduce a carbon tax. And Opposition leader Tony Abbott is supporting this "people's revolt", hoping to force an early election.

It's a super provocative power-play that's brought Russia eye-ball to eye-ball with the rest of the world in a high-stakes battle of wills. Who'll blink first? Vladimir Putin has ordered his military to seize a big chunk of neighbouring Ukraine and is actively surveying other parts of that country while all but daring Europe and America to take him on. Crimea - once a sort of cheery sea-side destination for holidaying Soviets - is the hot-spot. Former Moscow Correspondent Eric Campbell is there summoning all his experience covering the region to navigate this complex and explosive story.

It was supposed to be a quick news assignment. The war correspondent calls into a busy combat hospital, meets the boss and aims her camera as he and his team go about their work. But what followed was an extremely harrowing and defining 24 hours for both reporter and doctor. Sally Sara found the scenes that unfolded in front of her at the ER in Afghanistan the most confronting of her career. For trauma surgeon Marc Dauphin it was a day among many that would leave a brave and seemingly unbreakable man shattered and suicidal. What went wrong?

It was a monster made of wild wind and water that grew out of the north-western Pacific, muscled up and bore down on the island communities of the northern Philippines with frightening ferocity. In recorded history, no wind has has hit land with greater force and along with the surging sea it dragged onshore, thousands would soon be dead and more than 4 million people displaced. It's a catastrophe that would challenge the wherewithal of any nation, but when your people are scattered across thousand of islands, how can The Philippines recover and rebuild?

In the first episode in a two-part special investigation into the Lindt Cafe siege, Sarah Ferguson talks exclusively with the families of Tori Johnson and Katrina Dawson about their experience on the day and their devastation, anger and frustration in the aftermath of the siege. Surviving hostages recount their terrifying ordeal as they waited, hour after hour, for the police to arrive. The program examines how authorities over several years failed to comprehend the risk posed by hostage taker Man Haron Monis. This special investigation exposes what went wrong and questions whether Australia is prepared for another terror attack.
