S255E01 Love Conquers 09/02/2016 Love Conquers - Can love really conquer all Can it endure even through life's biggest challenges And what happens when it can't The secrets to true and everlasting love, this week on Insight.
S255E02 Line of Fire 16/02/2016 Fire - What we don't know about bushfires. Insight reveals the surprising risk of bushfires to city dwellers across Australia. We hear stories from those who've survived and rebuilt, and ask if there is a real way to reduce the risk of losing your home and whether homes can be fireproofed.
S255E03 Making Adoption Easier 03/03/2014 "I'd been through so many placements and so if anyone came to the door, I would go hide in my room." – Brendan, 15. Brothers Brendan, 15, and Shannon, 13, were born to a drug-addicted mother. They never felt safe living with foster carers and would hide whenever a stranger came to the door, worried they would be taken away again. Brendan says his fear subsided when he was adopted and had a permanent home. At age 12, Khaled pushed for his own adoption, even though he still has a good relationship with his biological mum. Over the past few decades, local adoptions have substantially declined. But the NSW Minister for Family and Community Services Pru Goward is pushing for more kids in care to be adopted – a move that could transform the adoption landscape across the country. She tells Insight that parents whose kids have been removed should be given a limited time frame "to turn their life around", and that adoption should be prioritised above foster care. Some parents like "Katelin" think this process is unrealistic and unfair to biological parents. Katelin was drug-addicted when her child was removed. It took her three years to get clean and win her child back. This week, Insight hears directly from children who have been in care, biological mothers, and adoptive parents about the challenges they have faced. We ask: should it be easier to adopt Australian children in care? And how will it affect the child in the long term?
S255E04 Kids and Concussion 10/03/2014 Is your child’s brain at risk by playing footy? Professional sporting codes including AFL, NRL and Rugby have put a lot of effort into improving how they deal with concussions on the field. But this isn't necessarily filtering down to the amateur and junior levels. And when it comes to kids, experts argue there’s even more to worry about. Neuroscientist Dave Ellemberg says his research dispels the myth that children’s brains recover more quickly than adults. "The developing brain is actually more fragile to the impact of a concussion," Dr Ellemberg says. Insight finds out what’s happening on footy fields across the country and what you should do if your child sustains a knock.
S255E05 Young Gamblers 17/03/2014 "I probably play, you know, 40 or 50 tournaments a day." - Michael, 19 Poker, roulette, sports, pokies, young Australians are gambling every day. Nearly 80 per cent of those under 24 say they gambled during the course of a year. Is it possible for them to keep their gambling under control? This week on Insight, we talk to young gamblers of every hue: from those who are confident that they can come out on top, to those who have lost nearly everything. Michael says he sometimes plays for twelve hours a day: "You can ..read your opponent and it becomes kind of a mathematic game. I’ve got a mathematic mind so I like that kind of challenge." Sami: "I dreamt of being independent from my mum and dad and having something of my own, buying cars, buying a house." Vince: 'If you sort of feel lucky and you’re around the vicinity of a casino "it kind of pulls me there." Matt: "I could have five dollars in my pocket and I’d still venture down with that feeling of chance that I could turn it into something".
S255E06 Twins Part 1 15/03/2016 What does the latest research about twins tell us about ourselves?
S255E07 Twins Part 2 21/03/2016 Twins, Part 2 - For social and scientific researchers, twins are ‘the perfect natural experiment’.

S255E08 Guns 05/04/2016 Twenty years on from the Port Arthur massacre, Insight looks at guns in Australia: is enough being done to control them, when firearms continue to destroy lives Or should the laws be loosened, to allow recreational shooters and farmers more access They say they have to be the most law-abiding people in Australia, to obtain a gun licence.

In this rare discussion, young Aboriginal adults who’ve been through care share their experiences with Insight and explain what they would’ve liked growing up, as well as what they want for their own kids.

We discover that improving the wellbeing of this unglamorous organ can have profound effects – whether you have existing gut issues or not.
S255E16 First On The Scene 14/06/2016 First on the Scene - How do people deal with tragedy and disasters when they're first on the scene of an emergency From everyday reluctant heroes who put themselves in danger to save others, to rescue workers who put their lives at risk doing their jobs, and bystanders who freeze rather than act when witnessing an unfolding crisis: Insight hears from them and others. Australian current affairs forum, with lively debate and powerful first-person stories.
S255E17 My First Vote 00/00/0000 My First Vote - Insight will hear from recent immigrants, all of them granted Australian citizenship in the three years since the last federal election, about the issues that matter most to them. These voters have a unique perspective on the Australian election process and how it compares to the political systems in their native countries.
S255E18 Entitled 16/06/2014 Do we have a culture of entitlement? Beau is unemployed and on Newstart. He has spent six months looking for an IT job. He says he’s worked hard to set up his career and wouldn’t want to go "degrade" himself to do a job unrelated to his field. "If I was to go and work in a café or something, I'd just see that as an absolute waste of time," he says. Rosina has five children and receives about $20,000 in family tax benefits a year. "I think I'm entitled," she says. "Children are a good thing and we should encourage things that are socially good. We're working towards stable families." In the lead up to this year’s Federal budget, Treasurer Joe Hockey said "the age of entitlement is over." This week, Jenny Brockie asks – do we have a culture of entitlement?
S255E19 Stalking 15/07/2013 One in five women are stalked in their lifetime. "I lost my home, I lost my identity and had to have my name changed." - Nanette What drives someone to stalk another person? This week, Insight delves inside the minds of the stalkers. Those accused of stalking tell Insight what they do and why they do it – some are remorseful; others aren’t. They are joined by guests who share their intensely personal and harrowing accounts of being stalked by former partners and aggrieved clients. Psychologists and police also weigh in to explore the definition of stalking, whether the laws are doing enough to protect victims, and whether stalkers can be reformed.
S255E20 Missing 22/07/2013 Are we doing enough to track down missing people? Jenny Karmas came home from work one evening to an unlocked, empty house. Although her husband Sam had left his keys, wallet and ute at home, he was nowhere to be seen. He is still missing. Around 35,000 people go missing in Australia every year. Nearly 1,600 remain missing long term. How do those left behind deal with the disappearance of their loved ones? Are we doing enough to support them? In the lead up to National Missing Persons Week, Insight reveals that there is still no adequate national system to track these people down. Speaking to families of missing people, police from missing persons units, as well as a person who has been 'found’, Insight looks at why people go missing and whether enough is being done to find them.
S255E21 Tough Love 07/07/2014 "If children aren't disciplined, they will never learn," - Mireille Is smacking children ever ok? This week we revisit that question as part of Insight’s 10th anniversary replay of favourite episodes from our archives. Corporal punishment is legal in Australia. But it seems every parent has different boundaries. We’re joined by parents who believe in a firm hand and hear from parents who use other methods of keeping kids in line – everything from 'time out’, removal of privileges, withholding food, or, as one of our guests puts it simply, "The Look".
S255E22 Stem Cells 14/07/2014 "This is an unproven theory." – Prof John Rasko'If you were the one sitting in a wheelchair, what would you do?" - Matt Battista If an experimental treatment existed for your illness – would you try it? Thousands of desperate Australians are turning to controversial, unproven stem cell treatments in the hope it cure a whole range of illnesses. They say they’re tired of waiting for the long process of clinical trials to conclude, while they get sicker and sicker. An exemption in Therapeutic Goods Administration regulation allows Australian doctors to treat patients with their own stem cells. Stem Cells Australia believes over 40 local doctors now offer treatments that haven’t been rigorously tested. Other patients are heading overseas for risky treatments that are strictly limited here in Australia. Some of them are returning back to Australia with startlingly successful results. Others have no improvement. This week, Insight asks whether current stem cell treatments are cause for hope – or just misleading hype.
S255E23 Hoarders 13/07/2016
S255E24 Back From The Brink 28/07/2014 With the right kind of training, you can basically do incredible things. – Anders Ericsson He calls it "The Dan Plan". A few years ago, at age 30, Dan McLaughlin quit his full-time job to pursue the unlikeliest of goals: to become a professional elite golfer competing alongside the world’s best. This is despite the fact that he’d only ever played a couple of rounds of golf. It’s all part of Dan’s dedication to the so-called "10,000 Hour Rule" – the idea that anyone can become an expert in anything if they simply complete 10,000 hours of dedicated practice. A few years in, Dan is about half way through his training program, and his handicap now puts him in the top four per cent of golfers in the United States. Can he make it all the way? This week, Insight asks if people are born with talent, or if there is untapped potential in all of us.
S255E25 Beauty Race 04/08/2014 Changing your face? Or changing your race? This year, Insight celebrates its 10th anniversary as a forum and we’re looking back at some of our most memorable shows. This week we revisit the phenomenon of people changing their physical ethnic traits – using everything from skin whitening creams to double eye-lid surgery. Twenty-year-old Heidi Liow told Insight that although she values inner beauty, she has gone under the knife several times. "I do like Caucasian features. I also wanted to look like a manga character, like in all those Japanese cartoons, like Sailor Moon," she said. What are the pressures or influences spurring people to get cosmetic surgery and what is considered 'beautiful’ today? Subsequent to this recording, Insight discovered Dr Andrew Kim gave Heidi Liow and Glenda Bui an 80% discount to publicise his practice. SBS had no prior knowledge of this agreement.
S255E26 Joining the Fight 12/08/2014 Why are Australians being drawn to the conflicts in Iraq and Syria? UPDATE: Due to court proceedings this episode is currently unavailable Nominee for 'Most Outstanding Public Affairs Report' at 57th Annual TV Week Logie Awards Finalist in the 2014 United Nations Media Awards "Abdullah" is worried. The Melbourne man has a 17 year old son who has completely changed in the last year or so. The teenager has grown a long beard and talks constantly about Shias and Sunnis. "I’m worried - he wants to go to Syria and join those groups and he kill some innocent people and he (might) die himself," Abdullah tells Insight. "He's quiet and depressed." Australian authorities say there are around 60 Australians fighting in the conflicts in Syria. And the Federal Government is nervous. "We are deeply concerned that this domestic security challenge will mean that Australian citizens fighting in these conflicts overseas will return to this country as hardened home-grown terrorists who may use their experience, the skills that they’ve gained, to carry out an attack in this country," said Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop. In response, the government is introducing new counter terrorism measures and has cancelled the passports of dozens of Australians. Jenny Brockie asks why are Australians being drawn to the conflicts in Syria and Iraq, either to do humanitarian work or join the fight? Where are the influences coming from and what should be done about it?
S255E27 Jobs and Disability 18/08/2014 Why are Australians being drawn to the conflicts in Iraq and Syria? UPDATE: Due to court proceedings this episode is currently unavailable Nominee for 'Most Outstanding Public Affairs Report' at 57th Annual TV Week Logie Awards Finalist in the 2014 United Nations Media Awards "Abdullah" is worried.

S255E28 Transgender 16/09/2013 "She started hitting herself to try and get the boy out, So then we just said enough's enough." – Beck Seven-year-old school girl Maddi loves dancing, the colour pink and wearing dresses. But only a year ago Maddi was known to her friends and family as 'Maddokk’. She was born a boy. Psychologists and psychiatrists say people are presenting as transgender at younger and younger ages. But parents are at loss to know whether their child is truly transgender or if it’s "just a phase". And the stakes are high – especially with the availability of medical interventions like puberty blockers and hormone changers. This week Insight speaks with children and their families, asking how parents can be sure whether their child is transgender and how they’re choosing to deal with it.
S255E29 Surrogacy 02/09/2014 "It is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do." - "Lisa" "Lisa" was 12 weeks pregnant with her friends’ baby. She had offered to be their surrogate. But the scan showed a possible chromosomal disorder with the fetus. The intended parents wanted to terminate the pregnancy. "Lisa", who was carrying the baby, didn’t. In the end, "Lisa" went ahead with the parents’ wishes. "It is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do," she says. "I believe that when you go into the surrogacy situation that you can write an agreement. But once hypothetical turns into reality, I think everything really changes." This week, Insight asks, who calls the shots in surrogacy arrangements? And what pitfalls and hurdles are people navigating?
S255E30 My Fault? 09/09/2014 "You can’t expect the world to just come in and swoop in and save you and make it all better again" - Tara Tara and her brother Gavin grew up surrounded by drugs and violence. Today, their lives have gone in quite different directions. Tara struggles with addiction to alcohol and prescription drugs and is trying to get it under control. She’s put her university studies into sociology on hold to care for her sick father. She credits her fiancé Ben with helping turn her life around. "You can’t be a victim anymore of your circumstance, you are the only person that can change your life," she says. Gavin is a recovering ice addict who struggles with anxiety. He recently found out he probably has drug-induced brain damage, which he says gives him a reason for missing appointments and commitments. "My memory is really bad from smoking too much," he says. "I can sort of have a bit of leeway." Gavin says he’s doing his best to fix his problems. But Tara says he doesn’t take responsibility and worries he will use his cognitive impairment as a crutch. This week, Insight asks, where does personal responsibility begin and end?
S255E31 Memories 16/09/2014 How do you deal with memories you don’t want? Casey is still haunted by the time she hit and killed a pedestrian whilst driving her car. It wasn’t her fault. She remembers vivid details like the woman’s knee high stockings. Paul still regularly thinks about how his carriage crumbled in the Granville train disaster, although it happened almost 40 years ago. Esther still struggles to look at a plate of rare meat after years of service as a police officer and forensic investigator. This week, Insight looks at how our brains process painful memories, and whether talking about them makes them better or worse. Are some memories so bad they’re better to forget?
S255E32 Pandemic 23/09/2014 Australia – and the world - is at risk of a deadly pandemic. But it’s not Ebola. Australia – and the world - is at risk of a deadly pandemic taking hold. But it’s not Ebola. The real threat is influenza. A new, severe strain has the potential to bring our society to its knees. You would transmit it before you realised you were sick. You wouldn’t have any immunity. It would spread like wildfire. And that’s why it’s deadly. In a special episode, Insight explores just how Australia would cope in a hypothetical influenza pandemic situation. How do hospitals decide who to treat? If the people producing our food are sick, where do we get it from? If you couldn’t work for a fortnight, could you still pay the bills? If mass gatherings are banned, does that mean you can’t attend a family member’s funeral? Who gets access to a vaccine first? Why? Can washing your hands really help? The next influenza pandemic is not a matter of "if", but "when". Are we ready?
S255E33 Like A Virgin 29/09/2014 "I know that my hymens have passed inspection in Australia and overseas and not been detected." – Les Blackstock, cosmetic surgeon Les Blackstock is proud of his reconstructed hymens. He says women request them for all sorts of reasons: because they have had pre-marital sex, they are victims of rape, or they "want to achieve a sense of a clean slate". He’s not the only Australian medical professional involved in virginity matters. Dr Wafa Samen, a Sydney-based gynaecologist, issues doctor’s certificates in English and in Arabic certifying that a hymen is intact. As part of Insight’s celebration of ten years as a forum, this week we revisit our program from 2013 on virginity: who wants to keep it, who wants to get rid of it, and who’s trying to fake it?
S255E34 Marijuana 06/10/2014 Is medicinal marijuana doing good or harm? It has been called a miracle, lifesaving medicine. But is it as safe as it’s cracked up to be? Politicians from across the aisle in Canberra and in the states are moving to trial medical marijuana. But many aren’t waiting for clinical tests. A growing movement of parents are using it to control kids’ epilepsy and adults are using it to manage chronic pain. This week, Insight cracks the lid on where medical cannabis comes from, what’s in it, and what it’s doing to patients. Host Jenny Brockie speaks to the suppliers – who come from areas as far afield as Nimbin and suburban Sydney – about the 'science' behind their 'miracle drugs', and the legal risks they face by providing it. Parents and patients speak about their success in using marijuana for a range of illnesses, and their desperation to have it legalised. But Brockie also hears from medical experts who believe there's no proven medical benefit to using marijuana, and that those using it are at risk of mental health issues. As the prospect of legalisation and clinical trials looms in several states, Insight also asks whether legal marijuana will lead to an increase of recreational use – and just what will happen to the black market.
S255E35 Conscious or not 13/10/2014 How do we know for sure if someone is unconscious? After suffering a stroke, Kate woke up from a coma able to see, hear and feel, but unable to move a muscle. For two weeks doctors and her family and friends thought she was in a vegetative state. Andrew frequently sleepwalks around his house and argues convincingly with his partner that he is awake. When he wakes up he has no memory of their conversations. Following an operation, Rosie’s 2-year-old son came out of anaesthesia like “devil spawn”, thrashing about and unable to recognise her. Anaesthetists call this “emergence delirium” and don’t fully understand how it happens. There have been significant gains in our scientific understanding of consciousness, but exactly how it works – and what it is – remains a mystery. This week, Insight looks at what we do know about consciousness and asks whether we can know for certain if someone is conscious or not.
S255E36 Violent Femmes 21/10/2014 "I stop once my opponent starts bleeding, that's when I stop." - 'Lea', 14. Because they're bored. Because someone said something nasty on Facebook. Because someone was "being a smart arse" to them. Australian girls are getting into some bad fights. Although males are responsible for most violent assaults in Australia, there has been an increase in violent offences committed by females, many of them aged 14-25. More females than ever before are being imprisoned for physical assaults and stories of young girls fighting are becoming more common. In one of Insight's most confronting episodes last year, girls as young as 14 own up to "putting the boot in", hair pulling and slamming heads into walls. And victims tell of the impact on them.
S255E37 Cyborgs 28/10/2014 What will the human body look like in the future? Most of us carry computers in our pockets or wear them on our wrists, but some of us are already embedding them in our flesh and brains. This week, Insight meets people who are integrating technology into their bodies. Some are modifying themselves with implantable and attachable devices to overcome disability, others are choosing to enhance themselves to test their bodies limits. We ask: when does a human stop being a human and to what extent should we adapt the human body with technology? What ethical and scientific questions does it raise?
S255E38 Fixing Allergies 04/11/2014 Are we any closer to finding a cure? Australia has one of the highest food allergy rates in the world. Despite this, experts still don’t understand why people develop allergies, making it very hard for sufferers to manage or prevent them. This week we ask: why are more people being diagnosed with food allergies and is a cure a realistic possibility?
S255E39 Stopping IS 11/11/2014 Can Islamic State be stopped militarily? In this special discussion, guest hosted by Anton Enus, Insight looks at whether IS can be stopped militarily, and what is the future for Iraq? Australia's armed forces are waging a bombing campaign against the Islamic State targets. Prime Minister Tony Abbott has ruled out troops fighting on the ground however the government is now sending Special Forces into Iraq, but only they say to advise the local army. This week Insight looks at the expansion of IS and the solutions being suggested for the region.
S255E40 First Contact 19/11/2014 Six Australians. 28 Days. One Epic journey. How have their lives changed? Join guest host Stan Grant for a special live show featuring all the participants from the First Contact series. After a journey of conflict and discovery, Sandy, Trent, Alice, Jasmine, Marcus and Bo-dene will be reunited and joined by Indigenous people they met and a studio audience. First Contact is a landmark documentary series that took a group of six non-Indigenous people, from different walks of life and with strong and varied opinions, and immersed them into Aboriginal Australia for the first time. Insight asks: How have their lives changed?
S255E41 Anxiety 24/11/2014 "You never know if the next day is going to be good or bad. It just seems to come out of nowhere." – Greta Warner This year, Insight celebrates its 10th anniversary as a discussion forum so we're marking the occasion by re-visiting some of our most memorable shows. This week it’s one of our most popular programs from 2010. Anxiety is the most common reason people seek counselling in Australia. If you have anxiety, it can dramatically reduce your ability to enjoy your life. It often leads to depression and its economic burden is huge. So why do people get an anxiety disorder? We hear from one man who was unable to leave his house for years because his social anxiety became so debilitating, and from a woman whose panic attacks control her daily movements. What exactly is it? And how can you treat it? Tonight we ask the experts whether the world is becoming a more anxious place? We also talk to psychiatrists, psychologists and researchers about treatments for anxiety sufferers and whether there is anything we can do to reduce the levels of anxiety in our society.
