Fake News: Critics say it changed the course of the American Election. Facebook says it is struggling to stop it. We're talking about fake news. And whether it's described as harmless fun or a serious problem, the one thing we can be sure of is that there is more of it around now than ever before. We take a look at what effect false headlines can have and how you can determine the truth. Mawson Anniversary: One hundred and five years ago, Douglas Mawson set off on an expedition that would write his name in the history books and earn him a knighthood in the process. But what happened on this trek that would ensure his story lived on for more than a century? We go digging through the history books to find out.

You will meet Tanya, who will tell her own story using no sound at all. And in doing so, you'll learn that her world is both very different and very similar to that of other Aussie school kids. Part 2 - Living loud: In the second part of our special Disability Day feature, we'll introduce you to Cameron, who lives with a condition called Tourette's. It's a neurological disorder that causes sudden movements or noises that can't be controlled and it affects 1 in every 100 kids. Cameron tells us what it's like to have Tourette's and shares the things he'd like other kids to be aware of if they ever meet him.

Tune in to hear about all of the differences and similarities, best and worst parts of moving up in life.
