URANIUM U-TURN

India is banned from buying Australian Uranium. Now the PM, Julia Gillard, wants to change that and sell it to India. We look at why that's a pretty controversial decision, both within her party and in the public.

FOREIGN FRIENDS

As President Obama visits Australia, we look at our close relationship with America. But is it a friendship for the future? Some people think Australia should instead be getting closer with countries like China.

PRAWN FISHING

Aussies eat loads of prawns, particularly around Christmas time. But our passion for prawns means we could be taking too many from the sea. We spend a night onboard with the fishermen behind this tasty catch, to see the truly sustainable system they've developed.

BUSH STORIES

Indigenous Australians have been telling their stories for tens of thousands of years, but until now not many people got to hear them. We take a look at a project where young Indigenous people have been given camera phones to tell their own stories - to the whole world.

WHEELCHAIR ATHLETE

We profile one of the world's best junior wheelchair racers. Nathan Arkley is hoping to represent Australia at the 2012 London Paralympics. It's the inspirational story of a boy paralysed from the waist down at only 8-years-old.
