AFRICA AID

Over the past few decades Australia has experienced its fair share of droughts. For us, a drought can mean crops and animals suffering. But over in East Africa the situation is threatening millions of lives. It's potentially far more deadly than anything else happening on earth... yet we don't hear much about it.

PRICE OF FAME

When many kids are asked what they want to be when they grow up... the answer is often, "famous". Whether it's through music, TV or sport, it doesn't matter. It's often simply the recognition that people desire. But we often read about celebrities struggling to cope under the pressures of fame. So is fame all it's cracked up to be?

TEEN SLEEP

SRI LANKAN FOOTY

We're always hearing that football players are a bit like movie stars these days. Well, it's not as ridiculous as it sounds... because a few of them are about to make their debut on the big screen. A new doco follows some AFL players as they travel to Sri Lanka to sell the Aussie Rules message to a nation that's more used to catching cricket balls.
