Amazon Fires
For the past three weeks massive fires have been burning in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest. The natural disaster has a lot of experts worried because of how important the Amazon is to the world’s environment. We look at the role of the rainforest and why it’s in trouble.

World War II
Sunday marked the 80th anniversary of the beginning of World War II. We look at the events that led up to the war and present a brief history of one of the deadliest conflicts in history.

Music Copyright
Recently music star Taylor Swift announced she was planning to re-record her first five albums after the rights to the original recordings were bought by someone she doesn’t like. We look at the issue of music copyright and why artists don’t necessarily own their own songs.

Flag Day
September 3 is Australia’s Flag Day - which marks the anniversary of the flag’s first flight in Melbourne in 1901. We look at the history of Australia’s flag and the ongoing debate over whether it’s time for a new national symbol.

Pandas
Olivia goes to Adelaide Zoo to meet Australia’s only two pandas, Wang Wang and Funi. They’ve lived in Australia for 10 years, but like all pandas, they officially belong to China and - while the zoo is hoping to keep them here - their time here could be up next month.
