Untold Australia is a three-part SBS documentary series that goes inside three very different communities which exist within unique pockets of Australia, whose presence and way of life remain widely unknown to outsiders of these close-knit cultural groups. Norfolk Island is 5 miles long by 3 miles wide; or, as some would say of this close-knit community, 5 minutes long and 3 minutes wide when it comes to gossip. In this remote Australian external territory where the local population descended from the legendary Bounty mutineers, it's no surprise they have their own way of doing things. With their own language, a blend of old seafaring English and Tahitian, and a hidden culture, many don't see themselves as Australian - that it says so on their passport is merely 'a technicality'. But recent hard times have forced the island to reach out to Australia for help, and with mainland help comes mainland rules. A modern day mutiny is brewing offshore. A Modern Mutiny follows four residents during a tumultuous year in the island's history. An outsider, on assignment from Australia, is among them - and Norfolk's cherished self-rule is in the firing line. The stage is set for a modern day mutiny.

At 4.35am on September 4, 2010 the city of Christchurch, New Zealand with a population of 400,000, felt the formidable 7.1 magnitude shudder of the earth. It was the beginning of a year-long nightmare, we learnt a new word, liquefaction, close to 10,000 tremors, and while still grieving began to recover. Over this time we follow the journey of 10 Christchurch residents as they talk candidly of their struggles in one of the worst natural disasters in New Zealand's history.
