Thirsty for adventure to escape their mundane farm life, The Coop Troop’s mission is to help any animal with a problem – and they’re kept very busy by the precious, pampered pets of neighbouring town, Animauville.

Welcome to the fantastical Land of Odd, home to the Minibods. Join six furry little friends as they get up to hilarious mayhem, turning everyday situations into unexpected, super silly events. Whatever life throws their way, the Minibods overcome hurdles the unconventional way, to better understand themselves and the world around them!
In Search of Instagram’s Worst Con Artist
In Search of Instagram’s Worst Con Artist is a two-parter that tells the inside story of Belle Gibson, the 21-year-old social influencer who claimed she cured her terminal cancer through wellness and healthy eating. Her miraculous story brought her fame and money, with a successful app, a book deal and countless television appearances. But when journalists investigated, they discovered something shocking: none of her story was true – she never had cancer. She had misled her millions of followers – and for some there were devastating consequences.
With access to friends and family who speak on the record for the first time, this series discovers the truth about Belle Gibson. Was she a manipulative, compulsive liar or a damaged young woman exploited by big brands for their own ends?
