The World Tonight is highlighting key on-air moments to mark its 40th birthday. One such story was the division of Cyprus.
On the 20th of July 1974 Turkey sent its armed forces into Cyprus after a coup backed by the Greek military junta installed a leader who supported the unification of Cyprus and Greece. The Turkish armed forces are still there 36 years later.
Ankara said the intervention was needed to protect the island's large Turkish minority from their Greek neighbours.
Two days after the Turkish operation began, World Tonight presenter Douglas Stuart challenged the Turkish ambassador to the United Nations over the failure of Turkish forces to observe a ceasefire.
