US police believe they've

uncovered the remains of the

missing Australian girl Zahra Baker. More detailed DNA

North Carolina a month ago.

Avenue North-West. The sample

from the home was taken from the home was taken from

personal items believed to be Zahra. According to medical

examiner staff on site when the remains were recovered, they

are consistent with a child.

Until that test is complete we cannot officially confirm are Zahra's. cannot officially confirm they

those results are not available

at this time. This is still a developing case and we are

gathering all facts we feel

exist. We understand the

concern and interest in this

case by the public but we must be cautious in releasing

further information so it will not jeopardise future court

proceedings. The release of any

information from this point on information from this point

will be very limited.

Investigators, agents and

officers and staff who have worked on this case worked on this case are

devastated. That we're not

security. There are about 10 trucks of police around trucks of police around her

home and roads were closed but with what will happen if with they're obviously grappling

hundreds of thousands of people turn out to greet her. The

other key issue is whether her

release will be conditional.

Aung San Suu Kyi has made it

very clear that she will not accept that. She won't accept that. She won't accept restrictions on her restrictions on her freedom of movement, she won't movement, she won't accept

restrictions on her political activity and most she won't accept restrictions activity and most importantly

on her ability to talk followers. Another Qantas mid

what was going on. They put made sure we landed away from emergency procedures

stopped at tend of the stopped at tend of the runway,

and checked out by the fire brigade

was following us in and they

turned the engines off and turned the engines off and we

all got off and then they gave

were up us a $25 voucher and people

it. And then we had to wait

around so it's been 12 hours or

more. So we're home now. And

they said it's just precaution,

we've put the fire brigade on

fire engines. What else did he say? We're trained for this kind of

kind of stuff. Yeah, trained for this situation. kind of stuff. Yeah, we're

There was lots of nervous

Frankston, Oakleigh and Moorabbin. It was very

frightening. The children were in their room and my daughter

Madeleine, who's 8, was sitting

on the couch and she actually

saw the tree coming towards the window so she came

screaming with her brother and her sister because she thought

the house was going to fall down, she was very frightened

and terrified. I was at one of

after that the pagers started

we've seen tonight we've had a

spew ash and dust into the atmosphere almost atmosphere almost 3 weeks after

its latest eruption began. The cloud

cloud of ash has drifted as far as

as Western Australia and

although most international flights into Jakarta have resumed, airports across

central Java remain closed. Aviation authorities are

keeping a nervous eye out as

every few hours thousands of

tonnes of gritty ash are up into the sky. Peter Cave reports from Central

Java. Nature at its most

terrifying. Almost terrifying. Almost 400,000

people are now clustered in more than 600 evacuation

shelters ranging from small community halls to giant stadiums sheltering tens of

thousands. The death toll thousands. The death toll is around 200 with whole villages

swept away by the flows. 500 people are in hospital and crops, trees and houses have been devastated. Hundreds square kilometres of crops and

trees look like this. The clean up

up bill alone will cost

hundreds of millions of dollars

and will take months if and will take months if not years and the experts could happen again at any could happen again at any time. Those expert s are closely

monitoring every sliver in the monitoring every sliver in the

earth's surface around

Merapi. The eruption we're

facing right now is quite horrifying, you know, and horrifying, you know, and up to

now more than 100

metres of mag Matic metal are ejected to the surface. A thick layer of that material, some as

fine as cement dust, some like

coarse, gritty and toxic sand

have blanketed the countryside. Streams

Streams and rivers have Streams and rivers have been

poisoned. The Government has

sent in a brigade of troops to

help but the task is daunting.

The scientists say while they don't know when the present

eruption will stop it's most unlikely to end cataclysmic explosion. This system already open so it's

easy for magma coming up to easy for magma coming up to the air. At the summit we have open

crater. What will really worry

people is if the uncontrol ed

flow of ash and magma suddenly

stops. So for now they can only

wait and try to wash away the

been in the news over its dominant trade position and

uncompromising view on the

value of its currency. Well

someone who knows about the

language of Chinese diplomacy

and indeed the language of

China is Debra fall - Fallows

and she's a writer and and she's a writer and has a

diploma in linguistics. Thanks

so much for joining us to be here. From the outside it

often - China's often

misunderstood as a nation and

when you see particularly when you see particularly the

formal way its leaders tend to

speak in public, you find the language

impenetrable to begin with? It's It's interesting, I've been stud yig languages and Lin

gisics all my life and did a little preparation before we

went to China to learn the

language. I thought I can do this, ki handle this and it was really a surprise to land in

Shanghai and find that this was a a much more difficult a much more difficult language, Melbourne Cup more impenetrable, much more difficult to get a handle on

than any other language I'd

tried to do. We often think of

China, the whole of China in

way as a financial and way as a financial and economic

powerhouse. Did you find Shanghai really a powerhouse or

is it very different when you

live on the ground there? I

think the answer is yes to both

of those things. It's definitely a powerhouse and in

Shanghai you feel nit the you feel you're hyperventilating because things

are moving so fast and yet when

you get out of that sphere into

doing your every day daily life

and going about your own

business it really feels much more more like the old China and that's certainly for me where

the language helped a lot. OK.

We hear a lot of blustering

from Chinese officials when

they don't like something, for

example, the way they often

describe the Dalai Lama or when

it flexes its muscles over

Japan and the sovereignty issue

in the East China Sea. Do

ordinary people echo that that's used by that's used by the leadership?

It's interesting

It's interesting because there are different levels of

language going on in the country in respects and certainly one is

this kind of official

diplomatic language that you

hear about events or hear about events or situations going on and yes, people do

echo it because you hear it

over and over and over again.

It's just kind of by rote It's just kind of by rote what

you learn and the way you learn to describe or get to describe or get your opinions or express thoughts about certain places. But that's a very different kind of language from the

street language that's street language that's going on that's, you know, much more idiosyncratic and incredibly by region, by

dialect by accent around the

country. I understand you

visited many different parts China but we always tend to

think of China as a monolith in

a sense but the main language Mandarin is only spoken in a few cities? It's been the

national language from the '50s

so everyone is taught that in

school but it's not necessarily

the first language of everyone.

There are 6 or 8 major families going on and 50

different dialects and accents is

is zimpbt, I guess, in the use

you would say it's different

from Boston to Dallas, I'm not quite sure how you'd quite sure how you'd say that

in - where you'd put the geographical differences in Australia. For example, when we

first landed in Shanghai I

honestly couldn't understand word of the Mandarin that was being spoken and being spoken and later discovered that my teacher had

been from Beijing and spoke

with a completely different

accent, a whole register of sounds from the speech in

Shanghai so it took a while to

sort that out. In fact it was

so bad at the beginning that I thought maybe he had playing a joke on us and

teaching us Cantonese instead

of Mandarin. We often see China

still as a one-party state even though things have moved on

from the real days of

communism. On does it feel like that? It

feels - well yes and no. You feel Chinese. There feel Chinese. There is certainly a strong nationalism

in being Chinese and a pride of

that but there's so much going

on at the local level that that's where your real engagement is and that's where

your personal oversight and

operation in daily life with

local officials, be it in

health or education comes in.

So again, different levels operating and

we came to think of our life in

China not being in a country

that is a monolith but much

more being in a more being in a country that is

of 1.3 billion individuals

of 1.3 billion individuals all

who are as personally minded as

Australians or Americans seem

to be. Just very quickly I to be. Just very quickly I love

the story in your book about

seeing a whole batch of

prochute os on the street that you didn't dare to buy. How

would it come to be that you of China? I don't know how it comes. There are many things that you don't know how it

comes to be in China but being opportunistic about what you

run into you learn that

a very important way to behave because because what you're going out

to find. Like that day I was

going out to look for milk and bread and a couple of bread and a couple of other

things. I didn't find any of those but I found this giant

mountain of big ham legs frozen

on the sidewalk and I didn't

buy those but you do buy those but you do kind of grab for whatever else along your way thinking you might horde it later. Fascinating. Deb Fallows

thanks for joining us today.

And staying on the theme do you

know your Mings from

Qings? Well there may be one

under the house or in your loft. A recent decluttering

effort in London unearthed a

rare Chinese vase which sold at

auction for a staggering $83

million. The piece million. The piece dates from

the 18th century and it's thought the buyer was from

China. It is beautiful, but it was being cleared out of a bungalow in north-west London

and the family thought it was only worst around ?800. But only worst around ?800. But the sales room staff decided to

have a closer look. have a closer look. The

auctioneers realised they had

something special. They

advertised it and they thought

well maybe it could go for more

than a million. 13 million is

bid. 14 million. That million pounds, though, was a pounds, though, was a serious underestimate. The atmosphere was electric, I fair way to describe it. The

bidding is now ?20 million, at

?20 million now, any

advance? It It was the advance? It It was the most surreal surreal experience I think I've ever witnessed because I come

to this auction house a lot and I'm I'm bidding like ?10, ?20 and things like thasmt But when

you get to the millions it's

unbelievable. ?40 million is where we're at, ladies and

gentlemen, at ?40 the gentlemen, at ?40 million. When

the hammer fell and smashed I have to say, such is my

enthusiasm, the place erupted. And time tonight, ladies and gentlemen, it's ?43 million. Sold. ?43

price that means the buyer has

to pay another 20% buyer's

premium on top of that. It's

the most strood price, it really is. But sit a vase fit

for a palace. Indeed it was

when the British and French

destroyed the old destroyed the old Summer Palace in Beijing that led to many

similar vases leaving China.

This ended up on in suburban Pinna. It's an

extraordinary vase. Vases of this sort which employ all

these different techniques, the

only place you will ever see them really is with your nose

up against the glass in the

Forbidden City. Time now for

Americans. In the end it would

be a wondering college drop out

1947 with his two fellow hold

soldiers the intelligence

hippy buy Suzuki came to the

island to listen to the island to listen to the feel

oftion a Japanese solder. He

asked me why I woul not come

out. I said if the war was and I received an order telling

me to stop fighting I would

come out. So Suzuki brought my

commanding officer and he did just that. After just that. After being pardoned by then Philippines by then Philippines President Ferdinand Marcos for Ferdinand Marcos for his

involvement in the killing of some

some 30 Filipino, Hiroo Onoda

would return triumphantly to

his homeland as a symbol bol of the irrepressible, if not fanatical, Japanese soldier.

But by the mid '7 #0s

philosophies and ideas changed

dramatically after World War

II. That philosophy

with mine so I went

struggle to stay awake, others

are receptive to his ideas of honour.

TRANSLATION: When I saw him I could not believe he was 88

years old. I want to become an old man like him.

TRANSLATION: Onoda went to the Philippines when he was just

22. He lost 2 comrades and was

fighting alone at the end. I think

think he's incredibly strong. He may still be Hiroo Onoda is now the last of

the stragglers. With the 60 or

so other Japanese hold outs

surrender ing to time and age. TRANSLATION: He's a loyal soldier. He followed an order as the last Japanese hold out,

I think he has an obligation to

tell his story. Hiroo Onoda has

has come to symbolise the spirit of the spirit of the Japanese straggler, men who refuse to surrender in the face of

overwhelming odds, if not logic and reason.

TRANSLATION: I became an

officer and I received an

order. If I could not carry order. If I could not carry it

out I would feel shame. I'm very competitive. His soul very competitive. His soul may not be enshrined

not be enshrined but Hiroo

Onoda remains a living spirit

of war time Japan. The last of the stragglers. Truly

incredible story. And now to an

art exhibition that people art exhibition that people have aichb an arm and a leg for literally. It's literally. It's called spare

parts and that's what's parts and that's what's on show with 40 donated

with 40 donated artificial

limbs providing the basis for

some extraordinary art work. 31-year-old Priscilla Sutton

is all about being

positive. When you are having a

really bad day one of the

nicest things you can do, I

think, as a female is get

dressed up really lovely and

feel really good about yourself. The Brisbane-based curator has a lot to

curator has a lot to feel good

about. Her first exhibition is about to be launched. The ex-politician is called Spare Parts,

Parts, it's bringing together

40 diverse artists all using preloved preloved prosthetic limbs as their canvasses. It's an unlikely combination but it

resonates with Priscilla

Sutton. 5 years ago she faced

Sutton. 5 years ago she faced a decision decision most people couldn't

imagine. I was 26 years old and I actually had elective surgery. Priscilla Sutton was born born with a severe limb condition that gave her chronic debilitating pain. Ordinarily

doctors would amputate the leg

if childhood but Priscilla Sutton's mother be able to make that choice. The realisation of pain The realisation of pain started to outweigh the fear of being an

an amputee. Her right leg was amputated below the knee and she says she's never looked

back. It was a very daunting

decision, you know, but decision decision, you know, but best decision I've ever made in my

life really. I get to fabulous shoes now so that's a

really great impact. And these

days I can run, which is really

exciting and I'm also

exciting and I'm also into

boxing which is really cool and that's been really good for my

balance with wearing a

prosthetic as well and trying

to get a little bit faster and quicker. But I guess in other

ways I think that it's just allowed me to live a lot allowed me to live a lot easier

of a life. And she's often

asked to share her experiences with new amputees. Hello. with new amputees. Hello. How are you going? Good, how are

you. Very, very good. So about 2 weeks and I should have my

leg, I'll be walking, just got

to heal up a little bit more

with my scar and And up and warkWaughing. That's a bit

excitele. A bit exciting? Too

exciting. What do you want to

do as your first thing when

you're

walking? Run. 20-year-old

Natalie Graham lost her leg in

a car accident 10 weeks ago. I thought everything was going to

thought everything was going to

change, like my life, my

family's life. Yeah, I thought it was all going thought it was all going to just change it would just be sitting around

doing nothing all the time or,

you know, it was a you know, it was a bit depressing when it depressing when it first happened. You're meeting these people at possibly the worst time in their entire life

they're surviving. For me I

think that's really inspirational as well inspirational as well seeing how some people have become an

amputee and it can be a very traumatic

traumatic experience and to see someone surviving through someone surviving through that

is wonderful. Priscilla Sutton put Natalie Graham to work put Natalie Graham to work on the Spare the Spare Parts exhibition. This

exciting. Have a squiz

something to do. My social life

is back. The exhibition

combines 40 prosthetics combines 40 prosthetics from

around the world and a wide range of artistic talent. We have graffiti

have graffiti artists, street

artists, painter, sculpt tors, comic artists and we have comic artists and we have a jeweller and a cobbler and a fashion designer. Sthe says

it's not just the art work that has captured people's imaginations but the stories behind the limbs prosthetic eye, so I wasn't expecting the eye. It was donated by a friend. And I

donated by a friend. And I knew

that her mother had passed that her mother had passed away

and that she had had cancer and that she had had cancer and

had worn a prosthetic eye and

then one day she came to work

and she said to me "So and she said to me "So we'd really love to give you the really love to give you the eye

for the eck Biggs." I went

"Really?" Nothing I do have

a few favourite, especially the

peg legs from Mackay. I think they were beautiful and quite

old and they're huge and big

and the guy who gave them to me

is such a character. When we

were talk on the phone he said he preferred a he preferred a peg leg because

it was better for shooting and

fishing and I thought that was

so great. And she says that's

what she hopes people take away

from the show. Have fun, be

proud because, you know, you've survived whatever

survived whatever experience

you've gone through to get

there and just go forth and

embrace it. From little things big things grow. A little idea,

yep. And I'll be back with all

the day's headline at of the hour. After that it's One Plus One.
