We now have a test for what it means to be truly Australian. The citizenship test was passed in the Senate last week. The Federal Government is biting the bullet by insisting that incoming migrants will have to abandon those values that don't fit with mainstream Australia. Hence, the need to pass the citizenship test before being granted entry. Insight brings together different generations of migrant families, husbands and wives, parents and children who talk very frankly about what it means when cultures collide within families and within the broader Australian community.

The English language pushed hundreds of local languages aside. In Australia, English was coloured by a few of the local Aboriginal words - kangaroo, koala, boomerang, barramundi, woomera and cooee. Australian-English quickly developed its own character and was shaped not so much by the local native languages but by the regional and criminal backgrounds of the early settlers.

The rainforests - beautiful, mysterious and enigmatic - are time capsules from long ago that carry the genetic inheritance of millions of years of evolution. They are home to half the living species on Earth, yet so much of the rainforests' elaborate web of life is waiting to be discovered. In this 3-part series narrated by Jack Thompson, we discover the fascinating rainforest right on our doorstep, in Australia, one of the driest climates on earth.

In the three-part documentary series, Science and Islam, physicist Jim Al-Khalili travels through Syria, Iran, Tunisia and Spain to tell the story of the great leap in scientific knowledge that took place in the Islamic world between the 8th and 14th centuries. This leap is tangible, with terms like algebra, algorithm and alkali all being Arabic in origin and at the very heart of modern science - there would be no modern mathematics or physics without algebra, no computers without algorithms and no chemistry without alkalis.

A look at the decision making process and the human brain. Can maths find the solutions to seemingly unrelated human conundrums? Sophisticated ratio formulas are put to use to predict the chances of individuals scoring a date or buying a pair of shoes. To what extent is our decision-making process manipulated by how choices are presented? Brain scans show the amygdala (emotional centre of the brain) lights up every time decisions need to be made. And what is premonition and is it really precognition, the ability to look into the future?

It's the size of a grapefruit, weighs 1.3 kilograms and works miracles. The human brain is perfectly designed to help humans walk, talk, think, feel and remember - and scientists are learning more about its intricate organisation every day. As researchers learn more about how a normal brain works, they can begin to understand how to help a diseased brain.
