BASIN PLAN

It grows 40-percent of all the food we produce in this country and sustains 30,000 wetlands. But the Murray Darling basin is under severe stress. Both sides agree there is a problem and Nathan looks at the plan to get the farming and environment balance right.

CHILE RESCUE

Chile's 33 trapped miners will enjoy life above ground after spending 10-weeks stuck in the San Jose mine. Some will become stars with book deals and spots on popular TV shows, so Kirsty explores how the miners were pulled to safety and how their lives will change.

NEWSPAPERS

Last week we tuned into the world of radio and now we open up the pages of the newspaper business. Papers are a big segment of the mass media but with mobile communications invading our lives Tash finds out if print is facing extinction.

FRED'S VAN

Imagine not having a clean bed and lots of food to come home to. Each day around 1 in every 200 Aussies faces that situation. But thanks to charity organisations and volunteers, homeless and disadvantaged people are being given a helping hand. Tash meets some kids working in Fred's Van who are making a difference.

RODEO KIDS

Jumping on the back of a bucking bull or a wild horse is not something a lot of kids would call fun! But for some people rodeos aren't only an adrenalin rush, they're a serious career. The sport is rounding up more interested kids and as Kirsty reports it can even help them sort out a few personal problems.
