Va­ri­ety is the spice of life and this week­end we’ve got the per­fect mix, from a look at the big kids who gave us

Wal­lace & Gromit, to the se­cret dou­ble life of one of South Aus­tralia’s colo­nial stal­warts, and the dif­fi­cult is­sue of pre­na­tal test­ing and ris­ing ter­mi­na­tions.

Any­one who’s en­joyed play­ing with plas­ticine can only marvel at the bril­liant char­ac­ters that Nick Park at Aard­man has pro­duced over the years – and our piece looks at just how his team do it. (An­swer: very slowly). And who knew SA SA’s s leg­endary leg­end 19th cen­tury chief jus­tice Sir Sa­muel Way had an il­le­git­i­mate son who played for Nor­wood, or that he sired four other chil­dren with a mar­ried woman in Tas­ma­nia?

We also ex­plore the is­sue of ter­mi­na­tions and Down syn­drome, as coun­tries like Den­mark stand ac­cused of eu­gen­ics by try­ing to wipe it out.
