Dateline is an Australian television current affairs program broadcast on SBS TV. Since its debut at 8:00 pm on Friday 19 October 1984, it has focused largely on international events, often in developing or warring nations. Since 2000, Dateline reporters have travelled by themselves without a camera crew or sound engineers. It remains the longest-running international current affairs program in Australia.

George Negus has hosted the program since 2005, replacing journalist, Mark Davis, who in his period between 2003-04 gained several nominations for the Walkley Awards. Davis still serves the programme as video journalist, dealing primarily with South Pacific affairs. He was preceded in the host's chair by Jana Wendt and Pria Viswalingam.



Dateline has been involved in many major events around the world, including releasing a story on 20 February 2002, on suspected treason perpetrated by Morgan Tsvangirai in Zimbabwe.[1] He was later acquitted by the High Court of Zimbabwe, but brought a lawsuit against Dateline for alleged defamation. [2]

Since its conception, the media program has covered areas of international current affairs, such as environmental policies, technological innovations' political impacts (such as electric cars in the USA), and general political events such as the Iraq War and violence in East Timor (2006).

The long-running current affairs program has also accumulated many awards over its lifetime, including Walkley Awards, Logie Awards, and UN Media Peace Awards, which is awarded by the United Nations Association, an organization not affiliated with the United Nations Organization. This has been a result of high-quality reporting from journalists such as Mark Davis, David O'Shea and previously, Matthew Carney, who is now with ABC.

In 2003, the program had a focus on the Pacific island nations, which the incoming SBS Head of Television Shaun Brown then broadened to be more globally inclusive[3]. He also made the program less focused on armed conflict.

In August, 2007, during the Mohammed Haneef saga over alleged links with the plotters of the Glasgow airport attack, Dateline correspondent David O'Shea reported that the Indian doctor was investigated by Indian authorities. A dossier compiled by Indian police, alleged Haneef had suspected ties to Al-Qaeda, though there appeared to be no evidence to back up the dossier, compiled after Haneef was arrested in Australia.[4][5][6]


Dateline uses a blend of investigative stories from reporters all over the world and interview segments in the studio (where the program is filmed) directed by the host and often using satellite linkups to communicate with guests.

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
