Summary In the fifty years it's been on air, Four Corners has broken more stories, triggered more headlines, generated more controversy and aired more high quality investigative journalist than any other program in Australia. In today's world of 24-hour news cycles it is an anarchronism, "a television miracle" as Kerry O'Brien puts it in his introduction to this book. But when it first went to air, no-one expected it to last. Now to mark its 50th anniversary, many of the program's most renowned journalists and producers look back on their biggest stories - from war, famines, and terrorism to indigenous rights, reproductive rights, and corruption in all corners of the globe. They take readers through the dramas and intrigue involved in bringing stories which anger people in high places to air. They tell what happened away from the cameras as well as on, share moments of humour and pathos and reflect on the vital role played by the ABC's flagship news program
