The Fugitive
For 20 years, Lee Barnett was on the run from police, a wanted woman. Caught up in a fierce custody battle, she kidnapped her baby daughter and fled the US, criss-crossing three continents to evade capture. Lee finally settled on Queensland's Sunshine Coast, and got on with her life until the FBI turned up on her doorstep. Now, for the first time since being released from prison, Lee is able to tell the full story of her life as a fugitive - a secret hidden from even her own children. But that story is far from over. Lee is now campaigning to be reunited with her children in Australia.

Hooked
From the outside looking in, rugby league legend Matt Cooper has it all - a beautiful wife, two healthy girls, a luxurious home and a place in Australian sporting history. But until recently, Matt had a dark secret - a secret that almost cost him everything. He was hiding a severe addiction to prescription drugs. Opioid addiction doesn't discriminate, hundreds of Australians die every year, and thousands more are hopelessly hooked on strong pain killers. From superstars like actor Heath Ledger to everyday mums. Sunday Night's Alex Cullen presents this special health report.

Reach for the Sky
Andy Hensel was a high-flying freestyle motocross star, fearless and always up for a challenge. But six years ago, his dream run came to a tragic end. Andy took off up a ramp hurtling more than 20 metres in the air, and missed the landing. He crashed the bike, broke his back and crushed his spinal cord. The accident left him a paraplegic. Enough, you'd think, to ground him forever. Not Andy. Sunday Night is there as he bravely attempts to fly again.

Jenny Brockie takes a look at chronic fatigue syndrome, what symptoms it has, and how people with the condition have managed it.
At 20 years old, Adele Clydesdale had just climbed Mount Kilimanjaro; she was starting her second year of university and playing in the Victorian Netball League.
So when she got glandular fever, she didn’t think much of it. She knew plenty of people who’d had it in high school and they always recovered quickly.
But even when tests results revealed the glandular fever was out of her system, Adele was still unwell and her symptoms were getting worse. She was increasingly fatigued, couldn’t string sentences together and had extreme body pain.
At six months, it was confirmed Adele had chronic fatigue syndrome, a diagnosis she found quite confronting.
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is estimated to affect between 0.2-2 per cent of the population in Australia yet very little is known about this condition.
Otherwise known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or ME, it is an illness characterised by profound fatigue, not relieved by sleep or rest and worsened with activity.
Patients will commonly experience muscle and joint pain, impaired memory and concentration and gastrointestinal disorders. However, the most defining indicator of CFS is Post Exertional Malaise (PEM) - when a certain level of cognitive or physical exertion will exacerbate a patient’s symptoms.
There are currently no proven treatments for CFS which means many are left without answers. Ketra Wooding has been unwell for eight years and with such severe symptoms, she has been living in a nursing home for five of those years.

The man who broke Watergate talks about Donald Trump
Donald Trump may have popularised the term 'fake news', but the wild nature of his presidency has also spawned an extraordinary series of insider accounts of his chaotic White House. The latest and most substantial of these is 'Fear' by veteran Washington reporter Bob Woodward.
Young women and injuries
The introduction of an AFL women's competition, the rise of the Matildas, and the increasing popularity of women's cricket all reflect a huge increase in the popularity of women's team sport. But with this surge has come a significant increase in serious knee injuries. Women are up to ten times more likely to rupture their anterior cruciate ligament than men, and Australia has the highest rate of knee reconstructions in the world.
Energy distributors push for a cap on solar power
More than six solar panels are installed across Australia every minute of every day as people try to tackle rising power prices. But the industry that owns Australia's poles and wires says all that power from the sun is a problem and it could destabilise the electricity grid. The solar industry disagrees, and it's preparing for a fight with the power networks.
Asian elephants under threat 
The Asian elephant is one of the world's most majestic animals. But now these gentle giants face a threat that could wipe them out completely … poachers who want their skin.
