The best non-fiction program on Australian television is the science journalism show Catalyst, the precursor of which was Quantum. Some of its stories are about weird, wonderful and unexpected discoveries in nature that are fun to know about, such as Frog Glue. Other stories have ramifications for how society should be run, such as Teen Brain (which demonstrates why people under twenty-five should not be considered full adults in the context of criminal justice) or Corporate Psychopaths. A few stories are like documentaries, such as The Man Who Saved A Thousand Brains (which particularly ought to be available on video). Personally, I think the articles on brain science are often the best, for example the fascinating work of Jack Pettigrew into hemispheric switching was discussed first here, and later here.
