NEW MIGRANTS

We've been hearing a lot from politicians about the best way to deal with asylum seekers. But amongst all the arguing about policy, it's easy to forget that we're actually talking about real people. BtN follows a family of new arrivals as they try to settle in Australia.

KIDS' RIGHTS

You've probably heard the phrase "human rights" before. It means that everyone has the right to a basic level of treatment. But did you know that there's also a set of Children's Rights? So what are they?

RUGBY TV RIGHTS

If you're a Rugby Union fan, you'll know that the World Cup final is this Saturday. But if you've been tuning in to BTN you might have noticed that we haven't said much about it. That might seem pretty strange, after all, the World Cup is big news. But as Sarah found out, with every big sporting event comes a big set of rules about who can use the pictures.

SOLAR CARS

An amazing car race across Australia is just winding up. What made it so amazing was that none of the cars ran on petrol. Instead, they were all powered by the sun! So if people are able to make cars to travel great distances that don't need petrol, why don't we see them on our roads?

CLASSROOM DRAMA

It's no secret that some school subjects are more popular than others. One school is trying to take advantage of a class's enthusiasm for drama... and apply it to other lessons. How are they doing it?
