FLOOD EVACUATION

Large parts of Australia have been hit by floods. At times like these we hear a lot about evacuations. We're going to take a look at all the planning that goes into evacuating a whole town of people.

MEDIA POLICE

The media can be very good at exposing people who are behaving badly. But what happens when the people doing the wrong thing are the journalists themselves? Who reports on the reporters? We examine the findings of a recent media inquiry which looked into how the media polices itself.

COTTON COWS?

A recent survey found that three-quarters of kids thought that cotton came from animals. And a quarter thought yoghurt came from plants. We visit a school which is going back to basics to teach kids about the origins of some of the stuff we take for granted.

CLASS CLOWNS

You might think you're a bit of a class clown... joking around when the teacher has their back turned. But have you ever thought about turning it into a job? We meet some kids who are learning the ropes on the comedy circuit.

GIRLS CRICKET

The cricket season is finishing up... and it's been a fairly decent summer for Australia. But while the sport is popular over here... there are many countries that don't even play it. We take a look at a program which is teaching cricket to Indonesian kids.
