              When a young Japanese fighter pilot is shot down and captured in the 1942 Darwin bombing, he knows in his heart he should be dead. Duty is heavy as a mountain, death as light as a feather. That's the Military Code and it means fight to the death, never surrender or you'll bring a... bitter shame on yourself and family. He conceals his true name to protect his family. Suicide is a possibility, but he's drawn away from his military indoctrination by experiences with ordinary Australians, drawn towards living out his own individuality. But the young bride he left behind had vowed she would kill herself if he died. He could write to tell her he lives, but would that reveal his cowardice, shame his family? And must he sacrifice his individuality to join the growing number of Japanese prisoners in their ferocious plans for a murderous and suicidal breakout? A tale of the Australian WWII experience, seen through the eyes of this deeply troubled man.

              We've all had days when if we didn't laugh, we'd cry. Whether it's a domestic drama, career cock-up or just a run-of-the-mill disaster, we've all been there - no matter who we are. In this hilarious and moving collection, well-known Australians from all walks of life share their ...stories as a kind of mass therapy; a feel-good tonic for when the proverbial sh*t hits the fan. From Annabel Crabb's tale of Russian interference in the birth of her first child to Kate McClymont on how to manage mobsters, or Frank Moorhouse on the worst possible Valentine's Day to Emma Alberici on moving to London with three small children, these entertaining tales of woe remind us that this too shall pass.

              On 11 August 1914, just days after war had been declared, Australian Captain J.T. Richardson boarded a German merchant vessel fleeing Melbourne's Port Phillip and audaciously seized a top-secret naval codebook. The fledgling Australian Navy had an opportunity to immediately chang...e the course of the war. But what exactly had they found? Enter the Australian code breakers ... Recruited by savvy top brass, maths whizz and German speaker Frederick Wheatley worked night and day to fathom the basic principles of the code and start tracking the German Navy's powerful East Asia Squadron, led by the brilliant Maximilian von Spee. Soon Melbourne was a hub of international Allied intelligence. This is the untold story of how a former Australian headmaster and his mostly female team cracked one of Germany's most complex codes, paving the way for the greatest Allied naval victory of World War I.

              In episode 1 of the Ray Martin fronted SBS series Look me in the eye two South Sudanese migrants now resident in Brisbane sat across from each other. One of them, Ayik, was once a ten-year-old boy soldier training in the junior forces of the SPLA and like many of the young boys h...ating it. He regularly ran away, sometimes to refugee camps, but was found, dragged back and brutally punished by then fourteen-year-old Anyang, the man now sitting opposite him. After a tumultuous life in Africa, Ayik brings that trauma with him to Australia and at various times gets in trouble with the law over violence, alcohol and drugs. He is misdiagnosed as schizophrenic and is wrongly medicated for years. One day at a Brisbane church he looks across and sees his childhood torturer and is filled with hate. They do not interact then, but on their next encounter, a few years later, Ayik speaks with Anyang and says if they were still in Africa he would kill him. Thankfully a number of forces (including the law, parenthood and a better psychiatrist) eventually set Ayik on the straight and narrow. He is studying, working as an actor and volunteering at his local PCYC.

              The global economy has been ruined by catastrophic climate change and paranoid governments will do anything to crush dissent. Irith, a young gene researcher, is thrown onto the streets and, with nothing but the clothes on her back, fights to survive in a predatory world. Caught u...p a battle between Security and a cabal of rebels, she has no choice but to help the rebels' assault on a secret data centre deep below London. They steal files containing the code for a dreadful terminator virus, but no one can decipher it. The rebels are hunted across the world to New Orleans, slowly drowning under the rising seas, where they plan to destroy the laboratory where the virus is being made. As the hurricane of the century bears down on the sinking city, Irith struggles to crack the secret of the virus before it wipes out all humanity. Then she must defeat a fanatical eco-terrorist who believes that the only way to save the planet is to erase humanity from it - starting with her.

              In Afghanistan, sometimes all that stands between coalition troops and death or serious injury is a dog. Highly trained dogs and their handlers search for improvised explosive devices or hidden weapons out on patrol with combat troops. It's a perilous job, often putting them righ...t in the firing line, and making them high priority targets for the Taliban insurgents they're fighting. Shane Bryant, a former Australian Army dog handler, has spent the past four years in Afghanistan working with elite American special forces alongside his faithful dog. War Dogs is his story.

You'd think a ghost grandad would be a great sidekick for a wannabe detective. Unfortunately, if there was a 'being a g...ood ghost' exam, Jay's grandad would fail spectacularly - he hates walking through walls, he can't touch anything and he's rubbish at haunting. 'Death by Soup' A murder in a fancy country hotel where the cause of death appears to be - soup! While Jay is surrounded by suspects, Grandad has his own informants - the ghosts haunting the hotel. But will they catch the killer before it's too ladle? 'Death by Tumble Dryer' Jay Patel is on the case of a dead body that vanished from the library of his Glasgow primary school. But what do diamonds, blackmail and dodgy launderettes have to do with it?

              It's the mid-1970s, and when young Lia Munro moves into a big country house in Australia after moving from Hong Kong with her father Paul, things start to happen that make her question who she is and what she might really be. The old house has ghosts; her father Paul has a past t...hat links him to both this rural hideaway and the ancient Italian witch named Adelina Russo who once held sway over a huge farming community. Lia starts to understand things about herself that she could never have imagined: she can see things that others can't, she can travel in the spirit realm, she has power. The enormity of that power lets Adelina Rosso know that somewhere close by, finally, is the one person who can restore Adelina's youth and energy, and raise her beloved husband Giancarlo back to life. Onto the scene comes the wealthy criminal Karl Haberman, himself wracked by terminal illness. Adelina Rosso and Karl Haberman join forces in a desperate search to find young Lia. The terrible ceremony Adelina has planned will save them all, but can Lia find the strength and courage to conquer an evil so ancient it reaches back to Italian folklore?
