Four Corners exposes what happens behind closed doors in some taxpayer-funded group homes for the disabled and talks to the mothers and carers taking on the system. These are families who've made the tough decision to place their disabled children into care, in the belief it would be the safest place for them. They say their trust has been betrayed. This Four Corners investigation shines a light on the mistreatment of these vulnerable people. These are homes where sexual and physical abuse occurs and perpetrators get away with it, because police and the justice system are unable to cope with the challenges of dealing with witnesses with disabilities. One industry watchdog expresses his frustration over the failure of the group home operators to end the mistreatment. And despite the billions promised for the National Disability Insurance Scheme and plans for new protections, some warn that families need to stay vigilant. The mothers and carers who've seen their children come to harm are determined to speak out and demand action.

For the first time since the dark days of Hitler's Nazi Germany, a right-wing nationalist party is centre stage in German politics.

This film, from the BBC's Panorama program, charts the rise of one notorious anti-immigrant group which stands accused of a wave of violent attacks. In an exclusive interview, one of the group's ringleaders talks for the first time about his motivations and his actions.

'The British people have made a very clear decision.' David Cameron On June 23, Britain was rocked by a political earthquake: the nation had voted to leave the European Union. Within hours the British Prime Minister, David Cameron, had resigned, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was facing calls to do the same and the pound was in freefall. 'The sensation was really like... dropping into quicksand and realising that there was nothing and nobody that could actually pull you out of it.' Craig Oliver, Former Prime Ministerial media adviser The result left many shocked to the core, but as this film captures, voters had been sending signals for months. 'It's about time England took England back, you know? They don't call us Great Britain for nothing, do they?' British voter The referendum campaign had become a lightning rod for disenchantment and distrust aimed at the financial and political 'elites'. 'Go back to London with all your yuppie friends.' British voter In the aftermath of the vote, this film from the BBC charts the tactics and spin employed by both sides of the campaign.

More than 60 million Chinese children are growing up without their parents, paying the price of their country's dash to prosperity. Matthew Carney reports on the generation left behind. Li Yikui, 13, hasn't seen his dad in four years. His mum visits once a year. When asked if he misses them, his answer is silent: a quivering chin and a teardrop tumbling down his cheek. There are 61 million kids like Li Yikui. In parts of central China, not far from the birthplace of modern China's founding father Mao Zedong, 80 per cent of children are growing up without their parents. If they decided to stay in our village just because of me, I'd feel very guilty... a big burden. - Li Yikui Mothers and fathers leave rural villages and towns for the big city factory jobs that have helped make China an economic powerhouse. Some return briefly; some never do. So children are farmed out to grandparents or boarding schools or left to fend mostly for themselves.

Milked Dry: The awful price being paid by Australian dairy farmers for the milk we drink. "We're locked in to produce milk for three years to this company that has shat in our face." Dairy Farmer They're the farmers who get up at five in the morning, day in, day out, to provide milk for the dairy products we eat and drink every day. "You wake up and you just rack your brain about how you're going to save some money to survive." Dairy Farmer The shock decision by Australia's biggest dairy company, Murray Goulburn, to cut the price of milk paid to farmers has left many trapped in a nightmare of debt and despair. "The very minute that we got the letter that said that's what the price is going to be, we decided, no, we can't keep going like this, that we would finish up." Dairy Farmer Four Corners visits the farms where it's costing farmers more to make the milk than they can get for selling it. The situation has become so desperate that some farmers are selling off their prized cows for slaughter, others are walking off their farms for good. "They're telling us to take a pay cut, why don't they take a pay cut?" Dairy Farmer Many of these farmers were already angry after the company locked them in to supply $1 supermarket milk. "It sent the message to farmers that we produced was worth less than water and that did an incredible amount of damage to our self-worth and more importantly to the worth of milk." Dairy Farmer

Children on the Frontline, one family's extraordinary story of life in the rubble of Syria and their escape to a new life, told through the eyes of four children. "We're here and, at any moment, the army could attack us." Helen, 10 In the Syrian city of Aleppo, 10 year old Helen and her siblings live and play in the ruins of their city as war rages around them. "The other day a bomb exploded inside the warehouse down in the garden." Farah, 7 Along with their mother, the children have chosen to stay in the city as their father commands a group of rebels fighting against the Assad regime. "They want to stay with their dad. I tried leaving with them for two months and I suffered a lot with them because they wanted their dad." Hala, mother The camera captures life for these children, as they wait in fear at the sound of incoming artillery, how they keep up with their schoolwork, and pick their way through the shattered apartment blocks to fill in time. "Take them inside because of the firing. Come on!" Abu Ali, father Filmed over three years by award winning director Marcel Mettelsiefen, this family's story dramatically documents the price being paid by Syrians as the war continues. "Daesh (ISIS), the ugliest word I have ever heard in my life. These people have stolen our entire lives." Hala As ISIS enters the war, life becomes intolerable and their mother makes the tough decision to leave Syria, and join the millions of refugees fleeing the country. "How do you spell Germany?" Farah The film chronicles their journey to safety and their grief for what they've left behind. "I took a piece of my heart and put it on the door of our house for him, for daddy." Sara
