It’s the late seventeenth century and a young woman is trained in sword play at Versailles.

She becomes a renowned opera singer in Paris, and in between fighting duels and taking a number of lovers, both men and women, she sets fire to a nunnery.

And here’s the twist: it’s all based on a real woman.

Have you ever wondered why people love to quote at length from our favourite films and TV shows?

Linguist Lauren Gawne says humans are very social creatures, ‘We like to share what we like with people as a way of identifying whether they’re part of our group.’

What are some of your favourite quotes?

Developers spend a lot of time at E3 talking about blue sky scenarios for their products.

Everyone wants their game to become a pop culture institution name-checked alongside Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings. Almost none will.

Halo is closer than many, and Bonnie Ross wants to tip it over, writes James Cullinane.

The Master Chief Collection looks amazing. Remastered Halo 2 and all multiplayer maps are incredible. Hat tip to 343.

For almost a century, tens of thousands of Indigenous Australians were forced to work for pastoral stations, missions and government reserves for little more than pocket money.

Some have called it legalised slavery and are now fighting to recoup stolen wages. Verica Jokic reports.

An Australian campervan company is facing an online backlash over 'misogynistic and degrading' slogans painted on the sides of their vehicles.  

By Sunday afternoon more than 12,000 people had signed a Change.org petition calling on Brisbane-based Wicked Campers to remove slogans labelled as degrading to women.

What do you think of the slogans?

Arrernte man, Chris Wallace, is no ordinary youth worker.

He's opened up his traditional lands of ltyentye-apurte or Santa Teresa south of Alice Springs up to troubled teens from across the country.

Chris runs a cultural and healing horse trek for 'at risk' teens, giving them a space to clear their heads and have an adventure.

An album inspired by old Super 8 surfing footage becomes an unlikely success around the world.

Murray Paterson created a movie, from almost thin air, from old Super 8 movie footage that was tucked away in suitcases and garages.

What is your favourite surf-themed movie?

A leading Melbourne astronomer says an object that lit up eastern Australian skies last night was not a meteor but instead a piece of space junk.

Pilots, air traffic controllers and members of the public spotted the bright light about 10:00pm.

Did you see the light in the sky last night?

We saw it here in south-eastern Melbourne ... It was very clear and bright and of course we initially thought it was a meteor. It was in the sky for quite a while and seemed to be travelling a lot slower than what I think a meteor would.
