CLONING BREAKTHROUGH

Scientists say they've made a breakthrough by cloning a human embryo to make stem cells. BtN breaks through the jargon to explain what this development actually means and why it's so important.

OVERSEAS AID

BtN takes a look at Australia's commitment to overseas aid. In the recent budget some money that was meant to be spent on poor people overseas will now be spent in Australia instead. So why do we send money overseas anyway?

NO CONFIDENCE

The opposition says that it's planning to move a motion of no confidence in the Government. So what does it actually mean? And how could this vote affect Australian politics?

BUG MEAL

The thought of eating beetles, maggots or ants may make you feel a bit sick. But a UN report is trying to change the way we think about eating insects and says they could be the food of the future.


Sport can be a great way of bringing people together and that's exactly what's happening at one football club in Victoria. A group of mainly Muslim girls have got together to create their own team. While they may be struggling on the ladder they're making their mark in other ways.

SHOW DOGS

We meet some family pets getting a taste of fame on the stage. What makes a great animal actor and how are they trained?
