Summary JUSTICE FOR REEVAFor six months they've intently followed the Oscar Pistorius trial in a Pretoria courtroom... now Reeva Steenkamp's parents have their say in an Australian exclusive on Tuesday's Dateline. Barry and June Steenkamp say that they don't think justice has been served, and they believe there's much more to what happened on the night their daughter was shot dead. Was key evidence missed? And did the court really hear the whole story? They say they're now exhausted and have never really had time to grieve for their daughter, but despite everything they still want to sit down and talk to Pistorius face to face. So what's the next move for a couple so reluctantly thrust into the world's spotlight?THE POOREST PRESIDENTWhen Dateline normally interviews world leaders, the setting is a grand presidential palace or imposing parliament building, but not for David O'Shea's profile of Uruguayan President Jose Mujica. The 79-year-old still lives in the ramshackle one bedroom farmhouse he's shared with his wife for 30 years, and as chickens peck round the garden chairs, he gives his very progressive take on world affairs. The former guerrilla leader, who spent 13 years in prison, has legalised gay marriage and marijuana, and courted controversy by agreeing with Barack Obama to accept prisoners from Guantanamo Bay. He and his wife, Senator Lucia Topolansky, have become a formidable force in Uruguyan politics, but after donating 90% of his salary to charity, he's happy to drive home in his trusty old VW Beetle to tend to his animals. In a world where politicians aren't always held in high esteem, could this man of the people be showing the way forward? And when his term ends, will his successor be following in his footsteps?SAVING ZACK?It's a year since Dateline first met 15-year-old Zack Lamb, who has one of the most severe cases of Tourette Syndrome in the United States, and it's been the biggest and most difficult year of his life. Aaron Lewis has continued following him as he's undergone experimental neurosurgery to implant an electrical device to control his brain. He and his family hope it'll put a stop to his violent rages and relentless involuntary tics and allow him to live a normal life. On Tuesday's Dateline, we find out if the surgery was successful and see what kind of boy has emerged from such a complex and life-changing operation. Zack also returns to the annual Camp Twitch and Shout for children with Tourette's, where we first saw him and his friend Cole Johnson. Cole is one of the few people who can truly understand what Zack is going through, and whatever the outcome of his surgery, help him take his next step towards adulthood
