The BTN Welcome Book Revealed
Last year, Behind the News asked you to draw pictures of welcome for all of the young refugees and migrants that arrive here to start a new life. Incredibly, more than 12,000 of you took part. On the 20th of June, we will officially launch the book that all of you helped create. Tune in to find out if your pic made it in! And we'll give all of you a special gift to say thank you for helping us create it.

Climate Debate
Last week, we told you all about the Paris Climate Agreement and how the US is pulling out. Australia is still part of it though, and this week, talk turned to how we might achieve our own emissions goal. A review suggested a 'clean energy target' is the way to go. But the government is split on the idea. We'll take a look at Australia's energy market and find out how a clean energy target might change it.

Qatar Tension
Next, we're going to take you to the middle east, where tensions between neighbouring countries have flared. Some countries in this area have joined together to cut off another one - Qatar. But why? We'll tour the region to find out.

Desert Animals
How can some simple chicken wire save the lives of thousands of small native animals in Australia's Simpson Desert? Well, it's now being used by scientists to create homes to protect these important creatures from the feral animals trying to turn them into dinner. We take a look at the program and find out which feral animals are causing all the problems.

Sheepdog School
A group of kids from a small farming town in NSW are learning the art of sheep dog training. They've been involved in a special program that's all about training dogs to herd and manage sheep. We asked them to explain how it works.
