PREFERENTIAL VOTING

Deal or no deal? The election campaign is underway and there's talk of preference deals. Parties are giving their preferences to other parties. What does it all mean? Sarah explains why it happens and how our preferential voting system works.

FROMELLES FALLEN

Known as one of the darkest days in Australian military history, the Battle of Fromelles saw 2,000 Australians die, with another 3,500 wounded or taken prisoner. Nathan looks at what happened in this WW I battle, how DNA technology has helped identify Australian soldiers and the memorial ceremony to honour the fallen.

OILY CRITTERS

The worst oil spill in US history has killed birds, turtles, dolphins and more. Countless other animals are sick or injured and the rescue effort is underway. Sarah looks at the often fatal effects of oil on feathers, fur and guts, and what has to be done to save the wildlife.

YOUNG CHEFS

Move over election debate and make way for the finale! Masterchef has been a TV ratings record-breaker and it seems more young people are looking at careers in cooking. But it's more than just souffle and satay sauce, so what's being a chef really like? Tash puts on her apron to find out about the 'business' of running a commercial kitchen.

GO-GO MUSIC

Music has always been inspired by places and shaped by the circumstances of the people creating it. Go-Go is the unique sound of Washington DC and has become aligned with violence and crime. But is it really the sound of hope for the community? Tash looks at the people, the predicament and the pulse of the American capital.
