CHINA CONNECTION

We hear a lot about the importance of China for Australia. Why is this? BTN explains how countries trade with each other, and why Australia's mineral wealth is so important for both countries. But there are suggestions that China's economic growth could slow...what would this mean for us? [Nathan}

MARALINGA VICTIMS

The Australian government has decided to pay compensation to veterans connected with the nuclear testing at Maralinga in the 1950s. BTN explains what happened...why people were unaware of the risks, what compensation is...and why the Maralinga victims still aren't happy [Sarah]

YO-YO CHAMP

We meet 15-year-old schoolboy Vu Ho, who's just been judged Australia's champion Yo-Yo player. BTN looks at the history of the game...as Vu explains his tricks, his practice routine...and his ambition to take part in the world championships in the U.S. [Tash]

FOOD LABELLING

We are what we eat, but we don't always know what we're eating. Australia does have laws about food labels but some say they don't go far enough. BTN reports on a Federal Government review into food labelling and why it's such a big issue for our diet and health [Sarah}.

PET TIGER

Imagine having a tiger as pet. That's the scenario at a private zoo on the New South Wales south coast...where the owners regard a young Bengal Tiger as one of the family. For the time being Kinwah eats in their kitchen and plays with the family dog. But it's also a potentially dangerous situation...and the day's approaching when Kinwah will need to get used to a very different lifestyle. [Tash]
