SPYING GAME

Australia has just expelled an Israeli diplomat over the forging of Australian passports. The diplomat's been named as an agent of the Israeli spy agency, Mossad. BTN examines the world of international espionage. Every country has its spy agencies...but how do they work? And are these spies the stuff of James Bond or something a little more mundane? {Sarah}

RISK TAKERS

This month Australia hailed 16-year-old Jessica Watson for her solo around the world sailing voyage. And this week 13-year old Jordan Romero from California became the youngest person to climb Mount Everest. But one thing these young adventurers have in common is criticism for them being too young for such risky endeavours. BTN looks at these criticisms...and also the other extreme - psychologists who argue that children are being over-protected from life. [Tash]

INTERNET PRIVACY

Social networking sites are in the news because of concerns over user privacy. We show how these sites operate, why some are unhappy with them, and what users can do to stay safe on the Web. [Nathan}

SPINAL SAFETY

Kids are vulnerable to spinal damage because of their physical development and also because of the safety issues they face in a home and school environments. A campaign's underway to educate both kids and their carers about spinal cord injury prevention and management. [Tash]

SEA CREATURES

An expedition to Antarctica has used an experimental video setup to capture some of the mysterious creatures that live on the sea floor of the Southern Ocean. It's part of a campaign to have this unique fauna protected from the dangers of long-line fishing. [Sarah]
