Monday nights are unmissable viewing on the ABC in 2018 with the return of Australia’s best and most trusted investigative journalism, storytelling and discussion, delivered by the nation’s most respected journalists
On Monday 5 February, AUSTRALIAN STORY is back at its life-affirming best for another year with a range of moving, surprising and engaging stories that traverse Australia’s geographic and emotional landscapes – from a high-profile gay wedding in Sydney to a story of our country’s ancient history, from ballet superstars and sporting sensations to stories that uncover the best in humanity after the worst of circumstances.
Australian Story begins 2018 with an exclusive behind-the-scenes invitation to the wedding not everyone in the family wanted, as former Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s sister Christine Forster marries her partner Virginia Flitcroft.
Following on from a groundbreaking 2017, ABC weekly television investigative flagship FOUR CORNERS is back with more of the fearless investigations that change Australia.
Hosted by Sarah Ferguson and with the addition of four outstanding journalists to its award-winning team, Four Corners begins the year with The Billion Dollar Bust: Inside the undercover operation to catch the world’s most wanted money launderer, from Linton Besser.
Every Monday night Q&A tackles the big issues that set Australians thinking, talking and debating. Q&A is the national public forum where Australian citizens set the agenda by asking the questions you want answered.
With host Tony Jones, Q&A provides a rare opportunity for Australians to hold our political leaders and key opinion makers to account.
As the federal government puts tax cuts front and center of its budget agenda, Q&A will kick off the year on February 5 with a spotlight in economic policy.
“Australians want to know they are getting the best and most accurate journalism from a source they can trust,” said ABC Director, News Gaven Morris.
“ABC audiences know Monday nights can be counted on for complete coverage of the key news, in-depth storytelling, ground-breaking investigative reporting and lively discussion of the important issues.”
