Journalists take you behind 2018’s biggest stories

They’re the stories that grow a life of their own, lighting up the nightly news bulletins and dominating headlines. Political scandals, crimes and justice, sporting glory and humans behaving badly… the first draft of history is a ripping read in our nation’s media. But all these stories start with a single story, a journalist or a team that uncovers the truth, collects the evidence and spins the yarn. Join our panel of top reporters as they take you behind some of the year’s biggest stories.
