Summary MOTHER'S CHOICEThere's nothing unusual about women having babies. Understandably though, every mother-to-be feels unique. And Tara Brown is speaking from personal experience. If all goes well, come October Tara will be a mum for the first time. Soon Tara will have to make THAT decision - how she wants her baby delivered. These days, one in three Australian babies are delivered in an operating theatre. Caesarians are fast becoming the norm. Right at the other end of the spectrum, some women have their babies at home, with no medical intervention at all. Not a doctor or a midwife in sight. So, natural or the knife - on Sunday night the intimate stories of women who've already made that difficult choice.THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESSIt's the last Shangri-la - probably the happiest place on earth. Perched high in the mighty Himalayas, for centuries Bhutan has been locked away, untouched by the outside world. But now this magical little kingdom is taking it's first tentative steps into the 21st century. And it's a shock to the system. You find remote medieval villages suddenly have electricity. There are mobile phones, designer jeans and television. It's a delicate balancing act. Accepting the present, while preserving the past. An ancient culture that is mystical, mysterious and, sometimes not for the faint-hearted or the prudish.THE DOOMSDAY VAULTOn Sunday night we're going to take you to the end of the earth, to a place that holds the key to the future survival of all mankind. It's a huge bank vault, buried deep in a mountain near the North Pole. Built to last 10,000 years, to withstand the harshest weather conditions. But inside there's no gold, no diamonds, no dollars. This bank's deposits are far more valuable. Priceless, in fact. As Scott Pelley reports, it's designed to keep our most precious assets safe from the ravages of climate change and nuclear war. A treasure trove called the Doomsday Vault
