WHALING

Whaling is a controversial topic that's back in the news again after anti-whaling activists were accused of ramming a Japanese whaling ship. As the debate continues about who was to blame we take a look at the issue of whaling and why many people are opposed to it.

FOOD STANDARDS

Over the last month there have been lots of stories about horse meat being detected in other foods. The latest discovery was in the meatballs at some Ikea stores overseas. BtN investigates food labelling in Australia and the testing that's done to make sure products are properly labelled.

KONY UPDATE

Kony 2012 was one of the world's most popular online campaigns. The idea was to tell the world about a war criminal called Joseph Kony, in the hope that he would be caught. It's one year since that campaign started so BtN decided to head to Uganda to see if it has had any real effect. Lots of money was raised, so what was it spent on?

OSCAR PROPS

While kids might often dream of a life on the stage or screen, working behind the scenes can be just as exciting and rewarding. We meet some young people whose talent in making special effects has taken them all the way to Hollywood.

MEDIEVAL KIDS

Dressing up as a knight and practicing some medieval swordplay might seem like an unusual after-school sport but for the kids we met, it's the ultimate adventure.
