LOOSE LIPS When is it acceptable for governments to keep secrets? This week there's been a lot of talk about the website, Wikileaks after it revealed some top secret information about the war in Afghanistan. It's made some people very angry, but others think the public have a right to know what's going on. POLLIE SPEAK BtN examines some of the key words and phrases that you'll hear time and time again during the election campaign. From Work Choices and the Education revolution to Back to Surplus - what do they actually mean and why are the politicians so keen to keep repeating them? PRECIOUS METAL We look at an increasingly important metal, Lithium. It's a significant ingredient in enabling batteries to store and expel power. Some experts think that Lithium could one day become as valuable as oil and gold. It's big news for the South American country Bolivia which has the world's biggest lithium reserves. RISK TAKERS Have you ever done something that's given you a real adrenaline rush? Scientists have been on a mission to find out why young people, and particularly young boys, are big risk-takers. And why would such behaviour evolve, when it's potentially harmful - even lethal? BACKYARD BEES We report on the growing movement to bring beekeeping into our backyards. Keeping bees in the city can be an environmentally friendly way of making honey. And it's not as hard as you might think. But there are rules, so watch BtN to make sure you don't get stung.
