INSIDE DETENTION

Hidden camera footage has revealed the poor conditions for asylum seekers at Australia's off-shore detention centres. So why are we sending people to other countries for processing? And how can we guarantee that they're given fair treatment?

FASHION FACTORIES

Hundreds of people were killed when a factory collapsed in Bangladesh recently. Factory bosses told staff they had to work in the building even though they'd been warned that it was unsafe. The factory makes clothes for some well-known western fashion brands. So why do we make so many of our clothes overseas?

QUAD BIKES

Quad bikes are a part of everyday life for kids who've grown up around farms or in the country. At the moment, a kid can ride a quad bike at any age and they don't even have to wear a helmet. There have been some serious accidents recently and some kids have even died. Some people think the rules should be made tougher.

ACL INJURY

If you listen to any sports bulletin on the news then you're likely to hear at least one story about a player with an injury. Quite often we'll hear the names of these injuries but with no explanation about what they actually mean. Last week three AFL players tore their ACLs which meant they'd be sidelined for the season. So what is an ACL injury and why is it such a bad one?

UKULELE KIDS

A lot of songs these days feature an instrument you might not know too much about - the ukulele. It's a bit like a mini guitar and is really easy to learn. Tash caught up with some school girls who decided to make their own ukulele ensemble and are proving to be a big hit.
