Deadly Danger
The problem with the word influenza is its misappropriated meaning. We get a cough or cold and then wrongly moan that we've got the flu. It's a mistake which means we don't take the real flu seriously enough, even though last year it killed 1100 Australians and put another 30,000 in hospital. It's a deadly danger but there is some good news. On assignment for 60 Minutes, Karl Stefanovic reports how scientists are working on a super vaccine to beat the different and often mutating strains of the virus. It is hoped that the new vaccine will be much more effective and longer lasting than the current annual flu jab. In the meantime, Australians need to do all they can to avoid the flu.

On the Brink
There is no diplomatic way of saying it: Russia and the West are heading to war. Last week's US-led airstrikes on Syria infuriated Moscow. But last month the West was equally enraged at the attempted assassination of a former Russian spy in the UK, using a nerve agent. That incident caused farcical tit-for-tat expulsions of Russian and Western diplomats in nearly 30 countries. So far no leaders are willing to blink or back down, but they do want to be heard. Vladimir Putin's man in Canberra, ambassador Grigory Logvinov, warns that Australia's blind support of Russia's enemies is helping to bring the world closer to global nuclear conflict.

Being Barry

After 60 years of revealing his genius through others, audiences will now get to know the real Barry Humphries. And in a career as successful as his there's plenty to know, including how his demons almost destroyed him. But as Barry tells Liz Hayes in a candid and sometimes naughty interview, nothing can beat his addiction to making people laugh.
