Early next month will mark ten years since Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was lost somewhere in the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean. For the families of the 239 passengers and crew on board the Boeing 777, it has been a decade of despair.

Since the plane vanished, they’ve been living with the never-ending pain of not knowing what happened to their loved ones. Many of them also have feelings of anger, directed at governments around the world that seem reluctant to do more to find the truth about this disaster.

As Dimity Clancey reports, it is a frustration that has amplified because new and credible information continues to be collected.

Put simply, MH370 is a mystery that can and must be solved.

At only 18, Alex Batty has already packed a lot into his life. Much of it though has happened against his will. When he was 11, he was stolen by his own mother and grandfather.

The young Brit was then hidden away in hippy communes in Spain and France. For six years he was at the centre of a baffling, and unsuccessful, missing persons investigation. But then Alex took control of his own destiny.

In his debut report for 60 MINUTES, Adam Hegarty meets the very impressive Alex Batty and reveals the intriguing story of this young man’s daring escape and long journey back to a normal life.

There’s not much Andre Agassi doesn’t know about tennis. He’s one of the finest players to ever swing a racquet: a former number one who won multiple tournaments, including eight grand slam titles. But what the champ has to say about the game is not what many might expect.

As he confesses to Tara Brown, for much of his time at the top he loathed the sport. However, these days Andre is proof that there is life after tennis. At 53, happily married to fellow legend Steffi Graf, he is the dad to their two children.

And away from the court, he can be found in the classroom, where he’s raising billions to help underprivileged kids get an education.
