A fascinating insight into Australian home life as three frazzled, stressed-out families attempt to improve their work/life balance by participating in 'The Nest' experiment. We've always liked to think of ourselves as a nation of relaxed, carefree individuals who aren't inclined to let work get in the way of a good time. But does the popular image match the reality? Or is there a more confronting truth? That we've turned into a country of stressed-out workaholics, more interested in making a living than having a life.

Global warming and climate change are here and the world is hurtling towards a crisis point. How much more abuse can the Earth take? What would happen to us if our water supplies suddenly dried up? How would we survive if our rubbish and waste matter were not collected? How would we cope without fuel for our vehicles? How would we survive without electricity or gas? Without radically reducing our consumption of four eco hotspots - energy, water, transport and waste - the consequences will be harsh - for all of us. This is a six-part reality series that lets viewers see what life could be like without all the things we take for granted.

Pasty bespectacled comic John Safran is back with an eight-part doco-comedy. And it's his most daring and personal adventure yet. It's about cross-cultural, interracial and interfaith love. Mass migration has changed everything. Today, chances are high that someone you get a crush on at school, meet at a club, or get chatting to by the photocopier will not be from your tribe. The feel-good position is 'love will conquer all'. John suspects it's not that simple.
