Four Corners is an Australian television programme revolving around investigative journalism and the coverage of current affairs. The show debuted on TV in 1961 and has since then become the longest-running show of its kind in Australia. The concept is heavily inspired by the British show of the same kind Panorama. Four Corners airs weekly and investigates one issue every week, both nationally and internationally. Over the years the program has covered numerous controversial topics and uncovered several high profile cases, including police corruption in Queensland (in 1987), the involvement of the French secret service in the bombing of the Rainbow Warrior (in 1985) and the power of the fossil fuel lobby in Australia (in 2006). Four Corners has been honored with a place in the Logies Hall of Fame.
