On 26 September 1943, a group of six men paddled their folding canoes quietly into the Singapore harbour. All around them, the harbour bustled with activity, but they silently slipped undetected between the massive ships berthed along the docks. They were agents of Special Unit Z deployed by the Allied forces to sabotage shipping inside the Singapore harbour, which was occupied by Japanese forces. The men attached limpet mines to the hulls of seven ships and then paddled back to their forward base just 19 km/12 miles away. When the mines detonated, they sank or damaged 39,000 tonnes of shipping, leaving the Japanese completely stunned. Join us as we take a closer look at the amazing story of Operation Jaywick.
This program is about something men tend to think of as extremely complex: the inner workings of women. Most men have burned up lots of energy trying to figure out what a woman wants, what makes her tick, what’s on her mind, and how to make her happy. Well, there’s good news, success is simpler than people think. After years of research, Shaunti Feldhahn shows that women actually can be understood. She’s identified several key findings about women that explain many of the mysteries and enable a man to love his partner the way he wants to and be her hero. In this program, Shaunti shares her helpful discoveries and guides us on a journey into the fascinating inner workings of women.
There are significant dates that are etched in our collective memories, and one of these dates is 22 November 1963. At 12:30 pm a gunshot rang out that reverberated right around the world. Years after John F Kennedy’s assassination, people are still captivated by the event that happened here on Elm Street in Dallas, Texas. As a young man, he survived WWII and received a Purple Heart for bravery, one of America’s highest honours for gallantry during battle, but his life ended here on a peaceful autumn day, by an assassin’s bullet. We’re still fascinated by how the death of one leader could impact a people, a culture, a nation, or a world. Join me as we look more closely into this historic event and the message it carries today
Owers’ Corner, about 50km from Port Moresby, the capital of Papua New Guinea, is visited by thousands of Australian pilgrims every year, yet it is not a church. It is forever consecrated in the hearts of Australians, yet it is not Australian soil. It is Australia’s most important military victory, yet it’s relatively unknown. Our men at Kokoda represented the very best of not just Australian values but the highest values of humanity as well. As you watch the program, you’ll discover that we all walk on a track. And for us, it’s not the Kokoda Track; it’s the track of life. We honour the heroes of the Kokoda Campaign. But let’s consider how much more we should honour Jesus.
In 2015 Queen Elizabeth II became the longest-reigning monarch in British history, exceeding the tenure of her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria. And then 7 years later in 2022, Queen Elizabeth II celebrated another milestone—a 70-year reign—a Platinum Jubilee. She was loved and admired by many and was the longest-reigning English monarch ever. She was an anchor for her nation and the Commonwealth. But did she have an anchor? Where did she get her direction, guidance, and inner peace from? The answer may surprise you and perhaps give us some guidance regarding an anchor for our lives. Find out more in our program: Queen Elizabeth II – The Power Behind the Throne.
In her desperate search for freedom, Mary of Magdala was drawn to Jesus’ inspirational message. It changed her life and got rid of her demons. She witnessed the Crucifixion. She was present at the tomb. She was the first person to see Jesus alive after His resurrection, and the first to tell others about it. But still, we seem to know so little about Mary of Magdala. To find out more, watch our program Mary of Magdala.
What makes our planet unique is that it is teeming with life. As humans, we like to get near these magnificent animals, to watch and admire them in their natural habitat. But many of these animals are not only spectacular but unpredictable and dangerous; they might look cute and cuddly but could kill you in mere seconds. This program takes us on a journey into the Wild in search of the world’s deadliest animals and their message for us today.
Time is the most valuable asset we have. We all get the same amount of time every week – 168 hours. The difference between people who make their lives count, and those who don’t, is how they respect and manage their time. The highest achievers manage their time exceptionally well. With the right time-management skills, life becomes easier because good time management lets you work smarter – not harder. You get more things done in less time – even when time is tight, and pressures are high. This week’s program reveals the secrets of successful time management.

In 1986, the Thylacine, commonly known as the “Tasmanian Tiger”, was officially declared extinct by the Tasmanian State Government in Australia. Despite this, over 3000 sightings have taken place since the last tiger supposedly died in 1936, luring countless adventure seekers, trackers and amateur hikers into the Tasmanian wilderness for a chance at fame and fortune. But the real tragedy is how Thylacine even became extinct in the first place.

Arthur Stace is one of the legends of Sydney and the most powerful preacher the city has ever known.

This is the story of how eternity found him and elevated him above a life of rejection, alcoholism, and crime. This program invites us to reflect on the reality and meaning of eternity and how we, too, can find eternal hope in God.

And there was treasure, fabulous treasure, including two silver scrolls that carried an important message for us today.
This program is part of a series on the Beatitudes presented by Jesus in Matthew 5. In this episode, we will look at what Jesus meant when He taught, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of God.” The life of Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady of the United States of America, is a wonderful example of a life of service. “Poverty of spirit” is the first and foundation of all of the Beatitudes. When we live humbly before God, our lives will be filled with compassion and empathy for others.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a brain like Einstein? To be able to create complex theories and formulas that could change the world in some remarkable way?

This program is part of a series on the Beatitudes of Jesus. In this episode, we will look at what Jesus meant when he taught, “Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.” This teaching will be illustrated by the Charlie Brown episode in World War II, in which a German fighter ace spared a stricken American B-17 bomber and saved the lives of its crew. In the Bible, mercy is a central quality of the character of God, demonstrated through Jesus Christ, and a key character trait of his people. Mercy doesn’t come naturally to human beings; however, when we understand the mercy that God has shown to us, we can be more merciful toward others.
In March 2018, Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia collapsed onto a public bench in the English town of Salisbury. They were behaving erratically and weaving in and out of consciousness like someone who had taken an overdose of drugs. They were hospitalised and placed under deep sedation in a critical condition. Investigations revealed that Skripal was a Russian double agent who had been recruited to work for MI6, the British Secret Intelligence Service. Watch our program this week and learn more about this Russian spy’s story.
At 7pm on the 26th of May 1940, a short signal was transmitted from the dynamo room in Dover Castle. The message simply stated, “Operation Dynamo is to commence”. A few minutes later, a small flotilla of ships slipped out of Dover and began the treacherous but relatively short crossing over the English Channel, arriving at Dunkirk. When the sailors on board the vessels drew close to the shore, they were greeted with an unprecedented sight; thousands of soldiers, wearing their dark inky green uniforms, huddled on the beaches or milled in the water. All of them were gazing towards the horizon; all of them were waiting for hope. Join us this week as we take a look at the amazing story of the evacuation of Dunkirk.
Considered the pinnacle of human achievement at the time, the RMS Titanic departed from London for New York on April 12, 1912.

Isidor and Ida Straus, the co-owners of the Macy’s department store, in New York, died on board the RMS Titanic when it sunk on the night of April 15, 1912. Their love still inspires us, and it gives us a glimpse of the highest form of love – God’s love.
