Summary THE YOUNG REPUBLICANSTuesday's Dateline with Yalda Hakim comes live from Chicago, as the final week of the US election race gets under way. While the close-run battle between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney is being played out in the world's media, Yaara Bou Melhem is on the streets with a group of young campaigners trying to make their voices heard. The DC Young Republicans travel across the country encouraging people not just to vote for Mitt Romney, but in a country where voting is optional, to make the effort to vote at all. Away from the loud voices of the politicians, what are the concerns of the real American public?TAMING THE TIGERSThailand's Tiger Temple is one of the country's best known tourist attractions, with thousands visiting each year to play hands-on with the animals. It's marketed as a sanctuary for rescued tigers, helping to conserve the endangered species, but activists claim there's a history of ill treatment and illegal trafficking of animals. On Tuesday's program, David O'Shea poses as a tourist to see the side of the sanctuary presented to the public, and looks at claims the animals are mistreated. Protesters say the animals are being kept and bred purely as a money-making business, but the Thai Government and current staff are quick to defend the temple's work and the living conditions for the animals. So, exploitation or conservation?COMEDY CRUSADERIt sounds like an unlikely combination of jobs, but psychotherapist and comedian David Granirer has successfully combined both roles to help people tackle mental illness. Far from it being no laughing matter, he encourages those with mental health issues to joke about their conditions and help each other in the process. On Tuesday's Dateline, David Brill travels with him from his home in Canada to the United States, where his own brand of counselling is becoming increasingly popular. Granirer started his work after suffering from depression himself and also wants it to tackle the stigma around mental health. His comedy students describe their transformation from being reclusive and anxious, to being able to get up on stage and entertain an audience. All proving, he says, that laughter really is the best medicine
