Latinos in America have long been the backbone of the United States and with Latinos predicted to be the majority population in America by 2044, they're a group of people who'll be at the forefront in shaping the future of our country. Kamau Bell heads to East Los Angeles, a city that's over 90 percent Latino to sit down and meet some of the people doing everything they can to live the American dream and drive the conversation towards tolerance and acceptance. Kamau talks to the men and women who have to fight these sorts of prejudices every day while reclaiming the Latino pride they once felt ashamed of. (S.1 Ep.3)

In the last of these three programs, Andrew Marr looks at the defining moments of The Queen's reign, beginning with her accession to the throne in 1952 and her Coronation sixteen months later. He examines how she's coped with decades of changing and sometimes tense relations with the media, looks backwards and forwards at royal jubilees and charts her trip to Australia to look at what some see as her most enduring achievement, the Commonwealth. And - for the first time - all of The Queen's adult grandchildren have their say about 'The Diamond Queen'.

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. The sixth episode features some major players from war and peace, from east and west. From inventors who have changed the way we live and fight to artists who have given us reasons to do both, we count through 35 to 24 and cover some of the most influential and infamous people who made the twentieth century - a long reigning monarch, a murderous dictator and the "father of the Atom Bomb". Quite a mixture!

Lizzie O’Shea explains that Australia was considered by the first fleet to be terra nullius. Essentially, that means nobody had claimed ownership of the land. But of course people had been living in Australia for thousands of years. She introduces the Mabo case, and its key players. Lizzie talks with Bryan Keon-Cohen QC, who worked on the Mabo case which progressed slowly through the courts for ten years. One of the many problems that the team had to overcome was that of hearsay evidence. Indigenous communities rarely used written documents, and so ownership of land is passed down by telling the person what they owned. In our courts, that becomes hearsay, and does not carry as much weight as a written document. Professor Larissa Behrendt talks about finding out about Mabo as a law student. She compares it to what was happening in Canada around the same time. Lizzie O’Shea wraps up by reminding us that courts are bound to follow precedent but can occasionally radically change how law is interpreted, as they did with Mabo.

Lizzie O'Shea introduces the idea that a crime consists of both the action and the intent, that is, what the criminal thought. Robert Richter QC discusses the Mick Gatto case. It is a classic example because there were no witnesses, and because Gatto admitted killing Veniamin. But what was Gatto's intention? Was it self-defence or murder? Robert explains how the gun could be used to support Gatto's claim as having the intent of self-defence. Lizzie and Robert talk about the burden of proof in criminal cases. Richter also reveals that in most of his cases the client pleads guilty, and then his task is to try and get them the best sentence possible. Former Supreme Court Justice Betty King talks about the role of the judge in criminal cases, and the relationship of the judge to the jury. She reveals that she has only ever disagreed with a jury once, and that she has found it to be a good system. She discusses the sentencing act and its effect on judgments. Lizzie O'Shea wraps up by posing the question: have we got the balance right between the punishment and the crime? Find curriculum links at http://legalbriefs.com.au
