It's summer in North Queensland - the time when the tropics heave with energy and runoff from rainforests pumps nutrients into this supercharged marine ecosystem. Large predators such as sailfish come in from all over the Pacific to feed in the waters. The attack then comes from the sky, where a flock of hungry seabirds wait for their opportunity to strike.

CARBON AD There's been a lot of controversy this week over a new TV ad. It's not selling a product... instead it's selling an idea. The ad uses celebrities to try to convince people that a carbon tax is a good thing. But why go to the expense of trying to gain people's support... when the government's already made up its mind? LIVE EXPORTS There's been a lot of talk lately about whether Australia should be exporting livestock like sheep and cattle overseas. Some shocking vision has come out showing animals being treated badly. Now, some people want livestock exports banned. RIPPED OFF? Consumer group Choice says Australian shoppers are being ripped off. It says the same item of shopping can often be bought overseas for much less. So how do shops justify charging higher prices in Australia, and what can we do about it? TV CAMERA TV cameras used to be large, heavy... and difficult to move around. But now, thanks to new technology, they're a lot easier to use. And it might surprise you to learn they don't even need a person to operate them! Sean's gone behind the scenes to find out how we use cameras to make the news. CONDUCTOR They're one of the key players in an orchestra... but this person doesn't even make a noise. And they don't belong with woodwind, brass, strings OR percussion. We're talking about the conductor. It's an unusual job... and as Tash found out, there's a lot more to conducting than waving around a baton.

So on BtN this week, we're taking a closer look at the process. Plus there's teacher resources available for our stories on Child Rights Anniversary and Sun Damage.
