Of all continents on Earth, none preserve the story of the formation of our planet and the evolution of life quite like Australia. Nowhere else can you simply jump in a car and travel back through the entire history of the world. Australia: The Time Traveller's Guide takes you on a rollicking adventure from the birth of the Earth to the emergence of the world we know today. Buckle up for a rocky ride down the Road of Time with series host Dr Richard Smith. Over four one-hour episodes, we meet titanic dinosaurs and giant kangaroos, sea monsters and prehistoric crustaceans, disappearing mountains and exploding asteroids.

The answers revealed in this landmark series offer an original new perspective on human life, combining dramatic specialist photography with innovative CGI all set in spectacular locations across the world as we explore the ultimate wonder of the universe - us.

The inaugural BTN Teacher Awards! Is your teacher something special? Do they go above and beyond to make your learning fun? Well BTN would like to hear from you! This week we're launching a new national competition to find Australia's most special teacher. All it takes to nominate them is a short video telling (and showing) us why you think they are the best. Tune in next week for all the details! Holden Closure This week marks the end of an era, as Holden's car manufacturing plant in South Australia closes its doors for good. It's a huge moment for workers and for the whole country, as we see the end of car manufacturing in Australia. We'll take a look at the history of this industry and find out what the future might hold for those affected. Space Discovery For the first time ever, scientists have traced gravitational waves through outer space to their source. That sounds exciting - but what does it mean? We'll find out how the discovery was made and why astronomers say it will change the way we look at the universe. Quoll Return It's been more than 50 years since Eastern Quolls became extinct on mainland Australia. But now the little marsupials are set for a comeback. Conservationists are taking quolls from a sanctuary in Tasmania and releasing them into a national park in New South Wales. We find out a bit more about the project and why it's good news for both quolls and the environment. Teaching resources included Learning Areas - Science / Science Understanding / Biological sciences: Living things have life cycles Year 4 Living things, including plants and animals, depend on each other and the environment to survive. (Year 4) Living things have structural features and adaptations that help them to survive in their environment. (Year 5) The growth and survival of living things are affected by the physical conditions of their environment (Year 6) Teaching Australia Teaching is one of the most important jobs out there. So to celebrate all of the amazing work that teachers do each and every year, we're is launching a new competition - the BTN Teacher Awards! But first, we're going to find out a little more about what this job actually involves and how it's changed over the past hundred years. BTN Investigates - the History of Video Games BTN viewer Mini has asked us to find out what the first ever game was, who made it and why? Well Mini, you've come to the right place. We've put avid gamer Ruby on the case - tune in next week for her answer. Teaching resources included Learning Areas - Digital Technologies / Knowledge and Understanding: Examine how whole numbers are used to represent all data in digital systems (Years 5 and 6) Digital Technologies / Processes and Production Skills: Implement digital solutions as simple visual programs involving branching, iteration (repetition), and user input (Years 5 and 6) Implement and modify programs with user interfaces involving branching, iteration and functions in a general-purpose programming language (Years 7 and 8) Design and Technologies / Processes and Production Skills: Generate, develop and communicate design ideas and processes for audiences using appropriate technical terms and graphical representation techniques (Years 5 and 6)
