Summary IRAQ'S DEADLY LEGACYThe number of babies born with severe deformities and children developing leukaemia is rising dramatically in parts of Iraq.US forces used depleted uranium weapons to attack the city, which locals say has left them with this devastating legacy.One report even says the number of such illnesses in Falluja is higher than that recorded after the atomic bombings of Horoshima and Nagasaki.Walkley Award winning journalist Fouad Hady returns to his home country to see some of the deformed and desperately ill children, and meets some of the people battling against the odds to rebuild their lives, and their city.TEMPLE GRANDINTemple Grandin is a woman who thinks like a cow... that's how the 62-year-old animal scientist with autism describes herself, and it's made her something of a celebrity in the United States.She's written extensively about her autism and how she's come to understand the way the mind works. Parents of children with autism line up to meet her and learn from her experience.She also credits her autism for allowing her to understand how animals think. She's revolutionised the way slaughterhouses operate, even winning the support of animal rights groups, like PETA.Earlier this year she was named as one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People, and her life has been made into an acclaimed telemovie, nominated for 15 Emmys at this year's awards.David Brill travels with her as she meets her fans, watches her literally lying down with the cows, and gets behind the exterior of a woman who admits she's unemotional and reserved with humans.PACIFIC SOLUTIONS?Australia goes to the polls on 21st August, but events overseas have become one of the hot topics of the election campaign, with the parties' differing views on the best approach to asylum seekers.Video journalist David O'Shea reports from the Pacific Islands Forum in Vanuatu, where the issue is also high on the agenda. East Timor and Nauru have both been mentioned as bases for refugee processing centres for Australia, but what do their Foreign Ministers think of the idea? David also asks Australian Foreign Minister Steven Smith about relations with Fiji, which hasn't been allowed to attend the forum since 2007, amid continuing criticism of Commodore Bainimarama's undemocratic government.And could West Papua be the next Pacific issue to concern Australia? There's the potentially explosive issue of independence from Indonesia, reports of Indonesian troops on the rampage and possible conflict on the Papua New Guinea border
