Celebrate the milestone moments in Australia's rural history, from Ned Kelly's last stand to Don Bradman's standing ovation; from the highs of the Gold Rush to the lows of the Great Depression; from the devastation of drought, flood and fire to the rural renaissance that has seen agribusiness and farming flourish into the 21st Century. Witnessed through the lens of the nation's longest-running rural newspaper, The Weekly Times, the program will take viewers on a journey through time, highlighting the key moments, characters, experiences and events that captivated, informed, and educated readers across three centuries. It will showcase how the paper with the iconic orange cover became - and remains - a window to the world for those in rural and regional Australia, especially those in far flung and isolated communities.

With his adult mind stuck inside the body of a teenager, Mike actually has the chance to reverse some decisions he wishes he'd never made. But maybe they weren't so bad after all.

Seeds of Conflict focuses on the period just before World War I, when Arab and Jewish nationalism first made contact and the conflict was just beginning to germinate.

Marking the 80th anniversary of the Wall Street Crash, this film looks back at the great financial disaster which shook the 20th century. Startlingly topical in view of the bleak banking crisis of today, the film traces the background and backlash of 1929 with astonishingly fresh and detailed archive footage. The Wall Street Crash spread around the world like a malign infection. It humbled the rich and destroyed the savings of millions of ordinary people. It brought mass unemployment and near starvation to Europe and Asia, and slowed world trade for nearly a decade. The Crash also re-painted the political landscape, triggering the rise of ruthless dictators such as Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin. 1929: The Year of The Crash follows the wondrously decadent trail of the decade known as The Rolling Twenties the years in which Americans celebrated their post war status as world leaders in industry and modern invention, in which Jazz set the style for a worldwide generation and Hollywood movies featured glittering stars that bewitched a global audience. Setting the scene for a nation's dizzying rise, the film then plunges into the depths of its terrible fall, exposing the poverty, dole queues and squalid soup kitchens which followed in the wake of the Wall Street Crash. Finally, it reveals how an unlikely hero, Franklin Roosevelt, rode to the rescue of his wounded country, bringing hope and optimism back into the hearts of his people.
