Shock Waves Hosting a breakfast radio show has to be one of the most gruelling jobs in Australian media. The workload is so punishing, and the take-no-prisoners competition so stressful, it's not surprising that there's a long list of talented broadcasters who have failed in the timeslot. But not Kyle Sandilands and Jackie 'O' Henderson. Their radio partnership has endured for 20 years, and in that time they've not only consistently topped the Sydney FM radio ratings, they've turned waking up their audience into an art form. On assignment for 60 Minutes, Karl Stefanovic reports there are no airs and graces with this pair, which is exactly what their fans love. But it's also what supplies the ammunition to keep their critics - and there are plenty of them - huffing and puffing. Help When Hannah Clarke's estranged husband murdered her and their three young children in Brisbane in February, it was unthinkable to most Australians that someone could be that evil. Or brutal. He doused his family in petrol and set them alight. The crime highlighted the danger and complexity of domestic violence, as does Jacqui Barker's story. She's the victim of frightening abuse which was compounded because police refused to prosecute the man who splashed her with petrol and threatened to light it. But she didn't give up. Jacqui bravely fought back by launching a private criminal prosecution against her ex-partner.

Escape from the Palace Divorces are often messy and costly affairs, but nothing compares to the one that currently entangles the royal family of Dubai. The Emirates' ruler, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, is pitted against his ex-wife, Princess Haya Bint Al-Hussain, who surprisingly at this point, holds the upper hand. In this billion-dollar battle a judge has ruled the princess' claims that the all-powerful sheikh intimidated her with guns and threatened her with imprisonment are true. Other accusations against Sheikh Mohammed are so outrageous they're difficult to believe, but as Tom Steinfort has been reporting for two years now, this royal ruler has form. Shot in the dark Right now, there's one thing all 8 billion people on earth are wishing for: A vaccine for COVID-19. Political leaders everywhere, sweating on getting us to the other side of the pandemic, boldly promise it'll happen within 12 to 18 months. But why should they be so optimistic? After all, vaccines normally take decades to formulate and manufacture, and quite often success never comes. As Liam Bartlett finds out, some scientists say talk of a coronavirus vaccine is not only raising false hope, it's fake news. She'll be Wright It doesn't happen that often, but two-time world surfing champion Tyler Wright does know what it's like to be wiped out in the water. What's been a shock for her though, is being wiped out on land. Two years ago, long before coronavirus brought its menace to the world, Tyler was struck down with the flu. Like many people who get it, she thought she'd be right, but she was wrong. Tyler was hit so hard with post-viral syndrome, at one point it even looked as if she'd never get back on her surfboard. But how she fought back is what makes Tyler Wright a real champ.
