Summary CORRUPTIONHow can an expensive gift cause a powerful politician to lose his job? We're taking a look at corruption this week. What is it, and why do politicians have to be especially careful to avoid it? And most of all, what's being done to make sure it doesn't happen? We put the Australian political system under the microscope to find out.ANZAC DAYEach year on the 25th of April, we commemorate the lives of Australians who died in war. But for one young boy, the day has extra significance. For one thing, Anzac is his first name. But it's also when his thoughts turn to his great great-grandfather, who died in World War I.

Goannas see the toads as lunch, but their poison has the last laugh, killing the Goanna. So how do you stop native reptiles falling victim to an introduced pest? You train them not to see toads as food! We take a look at animal behaviour and sustainability in this story, while discovering that sometimes it's the 'out of the box' ideas that have the most success.**Teacher resources available at for this story**Science / Science as a Human Endeavour / Use and influence of scienceScience / Science Understanding/Biological sciencesROYAL PERFORMERSThe royals are here and they're making a big splash wherever they go.
