The history of mankind is a never-ending story of change, revolution, evolution - but surely no span of a hundred years can claim to have changed the world so dramatically, so rapidly and so irreversibly as the 20th century. A century where the empires of the past crumbled to make way for new superpowers and a new age. Built on science, exploration, and a desire to express new creative possibilities. A century where the world was drawn into one war after another. But where radio, film, television, cars, planes and finally computers drew us closer together than at any other point in history. It was a century of unprecedented change. Change that was born out of the actions of individuals - what they created, what they discovered, what they destroyed. Who were the 101 people who drove the changes in every aspect of life that made the 20th century and set-up the 21st? A decade and a half since the close of the century we can take a considered look at the people most responsible for the events that changed their world and made ours. In this series we count down - from 101 to No.1 - the names of those who, in the judgement of experts, including those who contribute to the series, most influentially shaped the century and our world. What would the world we live in look like without our Top Ten? It is hard to imagine but one things for sure, in making the twentieth century they have indelibly influenced the world we know today. In our final episode we reveal our picks for the most significant people "Who Made the Twentieth Century". The results will surprise many. Some will disagree with the choices, everyone will remain gripped up to the final reveal.

Legal Briefs: What is Law

Season 1  |  Episode 1  |  ABC ME  |  June 2, 2016

Lizzie O'Shea outlines the two extreme ideas of the law. On one hand law can reflect the morals of the day and provide justice by adapting to circumstances. On the other hand justice is better served by applying the letter of the law to everyone equally, independent of the consequences or the situation. She reveals that most lawyers find a place somewhere between these two extreme ideas. We meet some of Australia's top judges who talk about what they think about the law and justice. Former Justice of the High Court Michael Kirby talks about how the law changes over time to reflect changes in community attitudes. He also discusses the independence of judges, who must determine for themselves what their judgement will be. Justice Susan Kenny from the Federal Court of Australia explains how parliaments create laws, and judges are bound by those written laws. She points out that because judges are human, personal values will inevitably have a small influence on their more complex judgements. Justice Betty King from the Supreme Court of Victoria talks about how each crime is individual, and so too must be the judgement. Lizzie O'Shea wraps up by reminding us that law is in fact fluid and constantly changing. It can be shaped by individuals and by changes in community attitudes.

Based on novelist Jon Katz's book about his own struggles and how he worked through them with the help of an adopted dog. Katz is a blocked writer who agrees to adopt an abused dog even though he already has two placid Labradors. With an inbuilt urge to go chasing moving objects, Devon is an instant handful and just as crazy as Jon. Perhaps the solution lies in a no-nonsense trainer who dispenses life lessons to both Katz and his dog.
