Prime Minister Interview Scott Morrison visits the BTN studio for a one-on-one interview. We ask him a selection of questions sent in by our YouTube subscribers and Ask a Reporter audience, covering a range of topics, from the government’s environmental policy to the PM’s favourite superhero. Concussion Treatment Steve Smith has confirmed he won’t be playing in the third Ashes Test in the UK after getting a concussion in the second match in the series. We look at what a concussion is and why experts say Smith’s decision sends the right message to other sports people and to kids. Nuclear Tests Thursday is the International Day Against Nuclear Tests, which was set up 10 years ago by the United Nations to raise awareness about the effects of testing nuclear weapons. We look at the history of nuclear testing and the effect it’s had on people around the world, including here in Australia. Buying Territories The eyes of the world were on a Danish island in the Arctic this week after US President Donald Trump suggested that he’d be interested in buying Greenland. Denmark and Greenlanders themselves were quick to tell the president the territory is not for sale. But it’s not the first time the US has tried to buy the island. In fact, the US has a long history of buying other countries’ territories. Toilet Renovations If you think of the most exciting or pleasant room in your school, chances are it won’t be the toilets! But we find out about a project that’s aiming to change that. Its organisers are giving toilets make-overs so kids have a pleasant place to pee!

Amazon Fires For the past three weeks massive fires have been burning in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest. The natural disaster has a lot of experts worried because of how important the Amazon is to the world’s environment. We look at the role of the rainforest and why it’s in trouble. World War II Sunday marked the 80th anniversary of the beginning of World War II. We look at the events that led up to the war and present a brief history of one of the deadliest conflicts in history. Music Copyright Recently music star Taylor Swift announced she was planning to re-record her first five albums after the rights to the original recordings were bought by someone she doesn’t like. We look at the issue of music copyright and why artists don’t necessarily own their own songs. Flag Day September 3 is Australia’s Flag Day - which marks the anniversary of the flag’s first flight in Melbourne in 1901. We look at the history of Australia’s flag and the ongoing debate over whether it’s time for a new national symbol. Pandas Olivia goes to Adelaide Zoo to meet Australia’s only two pandas, Wang Wang and Funi. They’ve lived in Australia for 10 years, but like all pandas, they officially belong to China and - while the zoo is hoping to keep them here - their time here could be up next month.

Hurricane Dorian The Bahamas have been battered by the fiercest hurricane to hit the islands since records began. Hurricane Dorian was category 5 when it made landfall - the strongest category there is. We look at how hurricanes work, how they’re measured and how people are coping with the disaster. Trade Wars You might have heard on the news over the past few months about something called a trade war that’s going on between the US and China. The countries aren’t really 'at war' - but they are having a serious disagreement about tariffs and it’s having an effect on economies around the world - including here in Australia. We find out what tariffs are and how they’re being used as a weapon by the world’s most powerful countries. Human Evolution Scientists are really excited about a new find in Ethiopia. It's a 3.8 million-year-old skull belonging to one of our oldest ancestors and they hope it'll give us a much better understanding of human evolution. Matt find out more about the find and how humans became humans. NASA fossils Scientists from NASA and the ESA have been in Western Australia’s Pilbara region learning how to collect the best rock samples from the surface of Mars! Both space agencies are planning unmanned missions to the red planet which will involve collecting Martian rock samples and looking for signs of ancient Martian life. So that they know what to look for, they’re learning more about ancient Australian rocks which hold clues to the beginnings of life on Earth. Worm Wee We meet some school kids who’ve made a business out of worm wee! While it might not sound too tasty to us, plants love the liquid created by earthworms and so do gardeners. The students from Mercedes College teach us more about worms and how they help the soil to stay healthy.
