Operation Atlantis
In a major exclusive involving 60 Minutes, the Age, the Sydney Morning Herald and the New York Times, reporter Nick McKenzie reveals extraordinary details about a five-nation investigation targeting wealthy Australians accused of tax evasion. Codenamed Operation Atlantis, its aim is to recover hundreds of millions of dollars stashed away in faraway banks - money that has been ripped-off from ordinary Australians.

The Last Laugh
What does the classic American film Gone with the Wind have in common with the revered British sitcom Fawlty Towers? Well, after entertaining millions and millions of people for decades and decades, they were both recently taken off our screens because it was decided they caused offence. The productions joined a lengthening list of casualties of the cancel culture movement, a growing force of PC police who are determined to rid the world of racism, sexism and all forms of bigotry. Of course it's a fine ambition, but as Tara Brown asks comedians John Cleese and Kathy Griffin, have we now all become too easily outraged, especially when it comes to satire and comedy? And a warning: this story contains frequent references that some viewers may find humorous.
