9/11: TEN YEARS ON

This week will see the 10th anniversary of one of the most significant terrorist attacks in living memory. On September 11th terrorists hijacked aeroplanes and deliberately crashed them into buildings in America. Nearly three thousand people died. As Nathan finds out, the effects of the attack have been long-lasting.

DANGEROUS DOGS

There's about to be a big crackdown on dangerous dogs in Victoria, where a four year old girl died after being attacked by a pitbull cross earlier this month. BtN looks at whether people should people be allowed to keep dangerous breeds of dogs. And examines some new laws that are being brought in to tackle the problem.

ON THE SCENE

Can you always believe what you see on the news? A few journalists from channel 9 lost their jobs last month when they pretended to do a news report from a helicopter... even though they never actually left the ground. We look at why news programs think it's so important to show their reporters on the scene of the story. Whether it's standing in front of a court building, at a crime scene or in a storm... location it seems... is important.

OLD COMPUTERS

When the boss of the tech giant Apple announced he was going to step down... it was such big news that even the company's shares took a hit. Steve Jobs has been one of the leaders in the tech world since the early days of the home computer. So, we thought we'd take a journey back to a time to when your parents thought their computer was so cool... but in truth... it was actually really lame.

SPRINT SCIENCE

Surely, to be a top sprinter all you need to do is be able to run really, really fast. Well, there's a actually a lot more to sprinting than that. Tash examines some of the science and techniques behind sprinting... all designed to shave a fraction off your finishing time.

60 Minutes

July 5, 2020  |  Nine

Right Hand Woman There was little Jeffrey Epstein wouldn't do to satisfy his lust for young women and girls. It included spending millions of dollars masterminding a worldwide sex-trafficking operation. Countless innocent lives were destroyed. A year ago Epstein was arrested and a month later he died in custody. Investigators though refused to let this scandal go to the grave with him. Instead they shifted their attention to his high-profile friends. One of them is the Queen's son, Prince Andrew, who continues to dodge requests from the FBI for an interview. But late this week there was a significant breakthrough in the case with the arrest of socialite Ghislaine Maxwell. She's accused of being Epstein's right-hand woman and has been charged with multiple child sex offences. As Tara Brown reports, for the first time in a long time, the victims in this wicked saga are feeling relief rather than terror. Money for Nothing Australians are generous. In a crisis we're happy to donate money or provide a helping hand to those who need it. It's a kindness that is recognised around the world and was well and truly on display in the aftermath of last summer's shocking bushfires when hundreds of millions of dollars was given to charities to help those who'd suffered. But six months on much of the money remains undistributed, which is causing bitterness in many fire-ravaged communities. Victims who lost their homes and are now struggling through winter living in caravans and tents feel like they've been forgotten. But the charities say there's a reason for the delay: that it takes time to ensure the claims are legitimate, especially when there are so many people accused of wanting money for nothing. In a special investigation for 60 Minutes, Tom Steinfort confronts those allegedly cashing in our generosity.
