those news stories at 11, plus a

full wrap at 5. We tend to think of

Australia as a country that largely

protects its citizens, a country that generally puts human rights

above all else but to be honest our

record looks dodgy and we're

record looks dodgy and we're

surprisingly the only major common

law based country that doesn't

law based country that doesn't have

a human rights charter. For

Victoria that changed from the

first of January this year. The

State Government introduced the country's first human rights

charter, and a number of

ambassadors. One of those is Helen

Szoke and she joins us this morning.

Welcome. Thank you. Does this mean

we've been taking everything for

we've been taking everything for

granted before this? It is

extraordinary that Australia's one

of the few countries that actually

hasn't passed some sort of human

rights instrument and I think the

Victorian Government has taken a

really important step in that

regard. The way the charter

workicise to provide a filter

through which any action of

Government, in a very, very broad

sense, has to be viewed against the civil and political rights

contained in the charter. To that

extent, yes, maybe we have been

taking things for granted and it's

important that the next stage in

our becoming a sophisticate

ddmocracy is actually to be quite

proactive about how these rights

are going to change the way we live.

Why Victoria and why now? Why

Victoria is an interesting question. I think that

I think that in many instances that

probably what's happened is the

lack of a national instrument has

really meant that those States that

place a strong precedent, a strong

emphasis on human rights have felt

they needed to take action in their

own regard. The ACT was the first

territory to pass a human rights

act. Victoria followed. Other

States have undertaken inquiries.

At a national level as

At a national level as well we now

believe that the Federal Government

will undertake a consultation about

whether we should have a national

human rights instrument of some

sort. Have we been abusing human

rights up until now? When we talk

about abuses of human rights, most

people think about the big issues

and the most glaring of those have

been around refugees. Which we have a dreadful

a dreadful history of? Recently? We

have a very sorry history most

recently. But what, when we're

looking at what a human rights

charter does at a State level, and

the States don't have responsibilities specifically for

immigration and refugees, we need

to think about how it influences

every interaction that a Government

has with its citizens. If you think

abouts local Government, there are

abouts local Government, there are

many services that local government

offer to the citizens of Victoria.

Child and maternal health services

are coordinated through local

government, we have bi-laws and

sporting grounds, and in all of

those interactions, there are human

rights implications. When you say,

"Have we been abusing them?" It's

more a question of how Government

can be better at making sure preventing those

preventing those abuses from

occurring and putting very good

practice in terms of the rights and

the rights around freedom and

respect and equality and dignity.

If you think about how we want our

Government to treat our citizens,

we want all of those rights to be

taken in to account. How does that

relate to every day life for the

average individual, how can this

better their lives?

better their lives? Well, one of the challenging thingicise there

won't be a blinding revellation that

people will think, "Thank God for

that, my rights are protected." One

of the most immediate things we've

seen is in the law-making process.

So every bill that's gone in to the

Parliament has now had to be

assessed against the rights that

are contained in the charter. So

for the first time we've actually

seen in a very transparent way the

seen in a very transparent way the

Parliament debating whether all of

those rights have been taken in to

account when they're passing these

bills. Um, at the Government level,

in terms of service provision,

every central government department

and Victoria Police and difficult interfacewise the public, if you

like, have had to look at their

practices and say, "Am I behaving

in a way that's consistent with what these

what these rights are saying?" What

we hope to see is that people feel

that the way that their services

are delivered, the way their

government instrumentalities are,

treat them better. On a personal

level, one of the rights here in

the bill of rights is the right to

the freedom of expression and freedom of

freedom of speech. We can get in to

trouble for that on a national

level but are we protected now on a

State level but not on a national

level? It depends what you mean by

protected. No-one is protected by any breach of the law and the

charter doesn't protect anyone from

things, if they breach the law, the

important thing to understand is

that these, the rights aren't absolute.

absolute. So we still have a case

where the rights of an individual

need to be balanced with the

interest of the community. We want

want it any other way. Sure, on

that level then, what about the

right that the individual has to

privacy? And we were talking about

this earlier, we see closed circ td

TVs all over the place and in

public buildings S. that in breach of this new

of this new charter? Let me explain

how the charter helps to answer

that question. Basically the right

to privacy is one of the rights

contained in the charter. What it

means is if a decision is going to

be made about putting these closed-circuit television cameras

in any area, then that decision

can't be made until it goes through

an assessment about how it affects the right to

the right to privacy. And all of

those rights need to be looked at

in the context of what's

proportionate. What's the balance?

Is it more important to have those

TVs to protect the interest of the

community or is that breaching the

rights of individuals by

encroaching on their privacy? It

won't always be a straight forward

answer and the important thing is that discussion has

that discussion has to occur and it

has to occur in a very transparent

way. It's not behind closed doors

discussion. If a local government

wants to put these cameras in

public space because they believe

that's a means of crowd control,

that's a means of protecting

community safety, what they really

node to demonstrate is that there

isn't a less intrusive way of doing

it. They need to demonstrate

it. They need to demonstrate

they've taken in to account the

privacy of individuals who might be

using that space, who aren't

breaching the law, in another sense.

There was something in the

newspaper today about potentially

using cameras at traffic lights and

speed cameras to keep an eye on

people, particularly with road

criminal charges, and what you're

saying is that, if it came from the charter, it

charter, it would be a privacy

issue, but you're saying they'd

need to look at community concern?

When it comes to something like

that? That's right. Because these

rights aren't absolute, they have

to be viewed in the context of what

the interests of the community more

broadly are. And in this case, it's

likely that this will have to go

through a process of making those assessments. And I think it's

assessments. And I think it's quite

interesting in a way because on the

one hand I think there are many

people who think, "Well, anything

that tracks down the criminals or

tracks down the terrorists is

justifiable." But, in fact, it's

not and it's really important that

we critically examinen any moves

that are made to infringe on any

rights or to compromise rights in

any way. You

any way. You mentioned criminals

there and I was interested in

reading notes about Tony Mokbel's

lawyers have been say figure he's

to return to Victoria he won't be

given a fair trial because of

what's been written about him. This

new charter says, "We have the

right to a fair trial." Can his

lawyers use that now? I think that

lawyers will use the charter in

various ways when matters come

before the

before the court. And that's

important. I mean, in anyone's case,

their right to a fair trial or

their right to a fair hearing needs

to be established. But the

misconception is that somehow the

charter's there and people say, "OK,

he can go free." That's not the

case. If someone has breached the

law, they will be assessed on the

basis that they're breaching the law. How

law. How they're treated in that

process is important. Do you

expects or does the Victorian

Government now expect a whole raft

of litigation because of this? One

of the important things that we try

to get across about the charter is

that there's no individual right

for action under the charter. So

under the other bit of my job, the

Equal Opportunity Jurisdiction, if you feel

you feel you've been discriminated

against, you can lodge a complaint.

That doesn't apply to the charter.

If my right to privacy has been

breached, I can't lodge a complaint.

If there's a matter that's in the

court anyway t may be that the

charter rights are brought in to

consideration. Now to answer your

question directly, that means that

anything that's in the courts was

going to be in the courts in its own right.

own right. There isn't going to be

this huge increase in litigation

and even in countries where there

is a right to individual action,

like the UK that hasn't been the

experience there either. So we hope

optimistically and quite

confidentlythality what the charter

will do -- confidently what the

charter will do is to further

refine the way we behave as a community

community and the way we treat each

other and the kind of way we expect

Government to treat us. And it

won't be a lawyer's feast which is

always the fear, I think. In saying

that, how important do you believe

is a national human rights charter?

I think it's incredibly important.

I think that what we've done in

Victoria - it's not a big fireworks moment but it's one

moment but it's one of the most

important things that we've done in

terms of taking the next step as a

modern humanitarian democracy. And

for that to be replicated at a

national level, is incredibly

important. If you think about the

things that people talk about. If

you talk about human rights to

Australians, who haven't

necessarily struggled in the way

other countries have, with the

exception of our indigenous community,

community, then we think about refugees, we think about

immigration, we think about going

to war, we think about the Federal

Police, we think about the fair

trial for people who are dealt with

under laws that ostensibly about

national security. There's a raft

of other things a national charter

will also deal with, not the least

of which is around people with

disabilities and our indigenous community. I think

community. I think it would be one

of the most exciting developments

if Australia caught up. It's a

marvellous thing you do. Thank marvellous thing you do. Thank you

for your time. Thank you, it's a

very exciting job. Thank you very much. We'll be back after this.

In May last year we spoke with

Michael Lawrence as he trawled the

country for subjects of a major

photographic project which aimed to

celebrate our rich, multicultural

origins. His project was inspired

by the Cronulla race riots. The completed

completed project, All of Us, an inspiring exhibition featuring

Australians from 180 countries, was unveiled last week.

His powerful

image of our make-up is revealed

here. This book is fantastic. Thank

you. It is a great book. When we

spoke to you in May, you

spoke to you in May, you were

putting it together and you had

found 140 representatives from

countries that are now, people

living in Australia. You were

saying it was difficult to find

them all? There are smaller groups

of people like places - there

weren't organisations of people.

Somalians, there's heaps of them

and a big organisation. But someone from

from Togo, there isn't a Togo

association. I'd like to say thank

you for that interview you did for

me last year and I got down to the

car park and the phone rang and it

didn't stop all day. There were

1,000 hits on the website at the

end of the day and probably got 21

shots out of that interview. First

bloke said, "I'm Stateless. I was

born at sea and only just got an Australian

Australian passport." He lived in

Perth, unfortunately. If he's still

out there, tell him I'll be back.

We'd like to pick some of the ones

we've missed. Why was it so

important to do? When I saw the

riots, I thought, "This is really

bad," and you get the level of

frustration when you think, "Who's

frustration when you think, "Who's

going to fix this? The police or

the politician snz Had a brain snap

and I said, "I want to do and I said, "I want to do something.

Because I could take photographs, I

took photographs. I think the

statistics prove that Australia has,

hard for me to explain this

correctly, more foreign nationals that

that now live here in any country

around the world. How many

countries are represented in

Australia? This is a question that's difficult to answer.

I count around 230, 240 but can't

put my hand up and say - it's 231.

How many represented in the book? About

About 250 people in the book.

Around about 200, maybe a bit under

that, 190 countries. That wueltd

suggest therefore that we are a

really, really diverse

multicultural nation but this

project was prompted by your

concern about racism in this

country? I didn't want to see

Australia turning in to some of the

places these people have come from.

I was in London during the Irish

I was in London during the Irish

problems and I saw some horrific

things happen there and I didn't

want to live with this. Of all the

people you've photographed and

interviewed - do they now believe,

all of these people that are

immigrants to Australia, now call

Australia home, do they believe

this is a racist country? No, I didn't find any

didn't find any evidence of it at

all. They'd say to me, "You don't

know what you've got here. It's

fantastic." And the Turk sip ret

guy, he has -- Cypriot guy, he has

mates here. But if he was home,

they'd be enemies. A Palestinian

guy said to me, he had been

guy said to me, he had been through

a lot and he clearly still was very

upset about what's going on in his

home country and probably rightly.

But he was the only one who seemed

to be carrying any baggage. The

rest of the people was like, "Fresh

start. Let's get on with it." Have

you found other people with the

same views of you that there is

growing cultural tension within

Australia? I honestly didn't find

Australia? I honestly didn't find

any sense of that at all. I'm sure

that not everybody out there agrees

with me. But the overwhelming

response to the exhibition and the

book has been - everyone is saying

it's fantastic. You walk out on the

street and you can see all these

faces. Generally, I didn't feel

that I had any sort of sense of a growing sense

growing sense of racism. There

seemed to be much more acceptance.

I thought an incredible generosity

of spirit out there. I felt really

good about it. The art of portraiture is important that you

get very close to the subjects and

in doing so. You've gone to these

people and in to their houses. It's

incredibly private and gracious of

them to allow you to do this? I was amazed

amazed for a lot of them. It's

their proift territory. Anyone that

was reluctant? No, no, in fact,

that was the generosity of spirit.

They opened the doors and said,

"Come in." They all wanted to feed

me. A number of people had presents

for me. I had glasses cases and T-shirts. They were

T-shirts. They were willing to give

up their stories because with each

photograph there's a story. I'd

like to talk about, a list of them

here - The Congo twins? That's an

amazing story. What had happened

was the father and his daughters

had fled their home in the Congo during fierce

during fierce fighting. The brother

of the guy had left with one of the

girls. Anyway, to cut a long story

short, the family arrives in

Australia, land up in She --

Shepparton. The teacher there

realises there's unhappiness. She

realises there's a missing twin.

The teacher posted it on the Red Cross

Cross website and it just so

happens the girl has walked in to a

Red Cross camp with the uncle in

Kenya. They're put together. She

then travels to Africa, meets the

twin, organises for this to happen.

Takes 12 months for her to do it

and she reunites these two girls

and one is about 5 foot tall... The

photograph says it all. That's the height

height difference. One's abouts

four feet and one is five foot. One

girl is healthy, well fed, living

in Australia. The other one has

been walking around Africa, no food,

no water. She looks older in the

face, obviously from what she's

been through. You don't, can't

begin to understand what they've

been through. But their -- they're

back here together. Do you

understand more about people now?

Some of it's really heart-wrenching

stuff. How do you deal with that?

Sometimes I did find it really

difficult. It was really

challenging. They tell you their

stories. Some of the African

stories, kids getting their arms

chopped off so they can't carry

guns. A girl said to me that they're offered

they're offered long sleeves or

short sleeves. She said cut them

there for short sleeves and there

for long sleeves. I said, "You'd

day of blood loss." She said,

"They're the lucky ones." It's

terrible. The gentleman from

Afghanistan? Ali, he's one of my

favourites. A fantastic kid. A boat person. The boat

person. The boat sinks. He can't

swim. The boat is crap, anyway. A

sinking hulk when it leaves Jakarta.

It sinks off Ashmore Reef. He

clings to a bit of board and I said

to him - he said that he was in the

water for two hours." I said, "What

were you thinking?" He said, "I was thinking

thinking I would die." We save him,

get him off there and put him in

Nauru for four years. Genuine

refugee. He's genuine. Very bright

boy. Teaches himself English in

Nauru. The Government then start

using him to teach other kids

English in Nauru. He finally gets

out and here he is making a career

for himself and having a great

for himself and having a great go.

The thing from that story and some

of the other stories was that the

things that they have been through

and they've come out the other end

and he's made a career for himself

that some people, they were born in

Australia couldn't do. Is there

something that you've been able to

pick up from these people that

allows them to do that, to get

through such challenges? Look, I

suppose you just have to. I think the end result is these

the end result is these kids have

to get on with their lives,

otherwise they're going to have nothing. The motivation is pretty

high for them to succeed. He said

to me, "Look, I've lost four years

of my life." I said, "How old are

you?" He said that he's 24. And I

said, "You're only 24. Get on and go for

go for it." And he has. He's a

wonderful kid. Can we look at the

photo of the people from photo of the people from Sierra

Leone and the story behind the that

one too. It's a telling photograph.

You can see the history of human

horror and experience is etched in

the faces. I didn't really see it

when I was taking the photographs.

I remember taking the photos home

and showed my wife the photos and she

she said, "Look at that girl's

face." She fled and she went three

months in the bush walking with a

group of people. Some of the people

had new born babies. And they die

because they had no food, no water,

no hygiene. You could see the grief

in her face. But she's a very

strong girl. And she put the family

together here in Australia. She

together here in Australia. She

found them because they were all

dispersed all over Africa. When

they go in to those refugee camps,

they're hell holes. You might have

10,000 people in one of these

places. She's made it here. Her

name was Yay and her younger sister

was Yay Yay. She has four other

sisters. A great bunch of kids

living in a little flat

living in a little flat and having

a go. We talk about the refugees

and what they've brought, but what

they bring is they really want to

have a go and a life. The

exhibition is on at Federation skpn

square in Melbourne. Will it go

round the country? We hope so. It's

a huge effort to get it up but the

Fed Square thing is big because

Fed Square thing is big because

it's on a building. It's huge. We

think it's probably the biggest

photo show ever mounted. It covers

two sides of a building. It's a

4-storey building. We wanted to

tour and we want to get more

sponsorship and try and talk to the

Federal Government if they'll give

us some help. The book will be

launched tonight and it's a

magnificent book. What do you hope this

this will achieve? I wanted to make

a difference. As I was born out of

the frustration of watching

something go on, I wanted everyone

to see what Australia looks like

today. The human face. To humanise

what can be names or tags. And to

make people understand that this is

what we look like today and it's a

good thing. Good on you.

good thing. Good on you. It is a

terrific book. Excellent. Great to

see you again. I -y look forward to

the next one. I need a break. Thank you. Thank you. Arianne Spratt

cooking next with crumbed fish.

Now, I must admit I'm pretty happy

Kim is off today with the twins

because I get to try something new

in the kitchen and Arianne is doing

a pesto I've never even

a pesto I've never even heard of

before, pistachio pesto, incrusting

a salmon fillet and considered a

power food which is even better.

Good morning. A pistachio pesto?

You don't have to be constrained by

what you think is normal. A basil

pesto? There's still basil but instead of pine

instead of pine nuts we've put in

pistachios. Toasted? Yes. Can you

buy pistachios out of the shell?

You can. They're a hassle, aren't

they? They're not really that

difficult. Oh, yes, they are. I

want to keep eating them and it's

too slow to shell them. Go to a

specialty nut shop. It slows you up from

from eating too many. We're going

to crust the salmon with the pesto

with a broccolini salad. I was

wonderling, Kim calls broccoli broccoli.

It is definitely a broccolini solid.

I always use broccolini instead of broccoli. Stunted

broccoli. Stunted broccoli? It's a

baby. It is crossed with a Chinese

vegetable. How good is that? It has

the longer stem on it. We have one

over there. What's it taste like,

broccoli? It's younger and more

flavoursome. Beautiful. You can eat

the lot? The leaves and flowers. Do

you think children you think children would eat that

more easily? You know how kids love

baby carrots and baby potatoes.

Let's get on to it. Is salmon

coming back or did it go away?

We've eaten so much of it, that

we're over it a bit at the moment.

It can be a bit rich? It is high in It can be a bit rich? It is high in

omega 3 oils and great for your

blood pressure. All of that. How do

you cook it so your house doesn't

smell like a fismarket? Out on the

balcony or the backyard. It eats in

to the carpet? But it's beautiful

and it's good for you. I'll get

Christi to make the dressing. I

have olive oil, lemon juice and French

French shallots. All mixed in there.

I'm going to crust the salmon.

David, does that feel good? Does it

feel good? You know what I meant. I

want to talk to you about olive oil

because it's full of mono

unsaturated fats? The good fats.

What the hell does that mean and

does it have to be extra virgin,

does it have to be extra virgin,

cold-pressed or any sort? Cold

pressicide the best for you because

it's under-- pressed is best it's under-- pressed is best for

you because it's undergone no

heating. What is a mono unsaturated

fat? Let's go back to our science lessons. Were

lessons. Were you listening in

science, I wasn't. It's a good fat.

In terms of it's not a saturated

fat, is that right? I guess so. My

head is so full of power foods this

week, I can't remember. All all

these ingredients considered power foods? The broccolini and foods? The broccolini and salmon.

Lemon juice is considered as well.

Are the beans? No, they're just

good for you. The pus tasho. --

pistachio. Any truth to the rumour

that pistachios self-combust? This

is interesting. When they're in

large amounts, they large amounts, they are prone to

self-heating and self-combustion. self-heating and self-combustion. I

don't know in a domestic

application you'd get fires in your

pantry but if you have back vats of

pistachios, yeah. A bag of

exploding nuts. They'll already be

toasted. How scary is that? We have

pistachio in that? pistachio in that? You've ground up

up finely? All in to the food

processor and added enough oil to

make a nice paste and that's it.

You lose colour, so you try to make

it as soon as you want to use it.

Can you buy the store bought pesto

and add other things to it? What

would you add to it? Can you add would you add to it? Can you add

the pistachio? You can but you'd

get a double whammy because you

have pine nuts. A bit of chilly

chebgz chilly -- which willy chebgz chilly -- which willy in

there? Chilli in there? It should lift up quite easily. lift up quite easily. See how you

have the beautiful crust there?

Another thing with these vegies,

dress them while they're hot

because the dressing will - All of

it? As much as you think it needs.

It doesn't take long to cook the

broccolini? You just want the

gorgeous colour. Am I putting all

of this in? That would be great.

Thanks. Give it a good toss Thanks. Give it a good toss around.

You can see. It's so good for you.

This is not going to take very

long? You actually didn't even boil

the broccolini? It's hot water.

That's it. Still want it to be

crunchy. That's how it retains all

its nutrients? Yeah. If I can get

you to pile that on there. David,

that's probably enough. Looking

good. Looking good. That's pretty

much there, do you think? What you

would do now? Depends how you like

it? You want it medium rare. I've

got one here that I've done. got one here that I've done.

Wearing this dress and doing this,

I feel like a '50s housewife.

You've really blackened that pesto

there? It looks fantastic. Nice and

crusty. That's the cheese melted

and gorgeous on there. Perfect. If

I pop that on top of there. Thank

you. Steal that. What do you call

you. Steal that. What do you call

it? I call it a pesto incrusted

salmon with broccolini -- encrusted

salmon with broccolini salad. Five

minutes from start to finish.

Lovely. If you'd like this

We've had a couple of emails about

my beautiful dress today. It's

interesting, here we are talking

about the new Victorian human

rights charter and the diverse

multiculturalism that sweeps across

our country and everyone's writing

about your dress? Good fashion is

very, very important. Someone has

asked where I got it from because

they'd like to wear it to a wedding.

It's a Jason Brunson dress from

Myer. I'm going to a wedding on the

weekend and thinking I could

probably wear this as well. For

some reason I'm in trouble over some reason I'm in trouble over it.

Over my dress? "Dear, David, oh you

are such a bloke. You relentlessly

teased Kim about being teary." You

made her cry. She would tear up

that drop of a hat. Today you are

ogling the pretty girl next ogling the pretty girl next to you.

We all need to know the designer.

There you go. It's from Myer.

Someone else has said, "I was

questioning the colour of the item and this person has said

that it's not green. We'll bring

you the latest news headlines

shortly but we'll take a look

behind the scenes of the Disney

story of a rat, 'Ratatouille'.

The latest Disney comedy to be

released on DVD is 'Ratatouille',

the tale of a cute sewer rat. Kylie

Smith went behind the scenes of the

movie in LA, don't forget to stick around later in the show for

details of our fantastic 9am

'Ratatouille' competition. Now

don't get all confused, yes, it's

Kylie here but you haven't been

caught in a time warp. This is not

our afternoon kids show, 'Totally

Wild' and you haven't forgotten to

pick up those ankle biteers from

school. I'm here to talk to you

about wildlife. One of the most

common forms of wildlife in the

world. If you live in a big city,

you are never more than about 20

metres away from one of these

little creatures. Although I doubt

your every day common garden

variety rat would be quite this

clever. Yep, that's right. Rats.

But in this case, luckily, the

animated version. Coming to you

live from the good old USA, we're

here for the DVD launch, Hollywood

style, of the latest Disney Pixar

blockbuster, 'Ratatouille'. Not

quite a 'Totally Wild' story but a

girl does need a chance to dress up

occasionally. From the creators of

'Cars' comes Disney Pixar's latest

hit, shot almost entirely on

location in Paris. 'Ratatouille'

introduces us to Remy, a rat who

through a set of off-beat

circumstances, find himself

controlling the menu at one of Paris's finest restaurants.

Don't. I'm not, I'm not. Torn

between his family's wishes and his

true calling, Remy and -- turns the

restaurant business upside down and

challenges our perceptions of

gourmet cuisine. Definitely one of

the current highlights of any Hollywood career is the opportunity

to voice a character in one of

these amazing animation movies.

Familiar face, Brian Dennehey, has

added the character of Remy's

father to his CV. It's a fabulous

form. Where does the inspiration

for the character's voice come

from? Based on a guy who was a

famous American actor, comedian,

called Jackie Gleeson. He was a big

star and a big influence on me when

I was a kid. And I always saw him

when I played this part and heard

him. You've worked on a couple of

Aussie films, 'Romeo and Juliet'

and 'The Man from Snowy River'. And

answered all the unanswered

questions. Kurt Douglas didn't want

to do it, but I met my wife there.

That was a well worth movie for

you? It was. Pixar studios, which

is actually here in San Francisco.

Hollywood's home away from home.

And the man responsible for many of

these Academy Award winning

features is John. You started off

as an animator at Lucas Films, how

did all that develop in to Pixar

today? We started as a computer

company and evolved in to an

animation studio. I was originally

the very first and only lonely

animator at Pixar for years and

then we started building the

technology and building our dreams

of doing animated feature film one

day and started hiring more artists

and we became a full-fledged

animation studio after 'Toy Story'.

And Pixar is obviously all about

computers and technology, as you

mentioned, yet the characters that

you guys develop are just so

amazing? I was taught by the great

Disney animators. They were my

mentors, my teachers. And they

taught me it's about the story and

it's about the characters. That's

what entertains audiences. And so

we got interested in computer

animation and never viewed the

computer as the thing that would

entertain audiences. It's what you

do with the technology. The art,

challenges technology. And the

technology inspires the art.

Back to the party and as far as

Hollywood premieres go, this one is

pretty wild and not a rat in sight.

Would you like 2008 to finally be

the year you get that leaner,

sexier body? Would you like to

build strength, burn calories and

sculpt your figure from head to toe

without leaving your living room?

It's news time now and we're joined

by the enticing Natarsha Belling.

Good morning. Good morning. Making

news this morning,many experts are

watching the US very closely as the US Federal Reserve cuts interest

rates by half a percentage point.

The second cut in a matter of weeks

and is part of an aggressive effort

to stop an economic slowdown. The

move has already had an effect here

in Australia, the Aussie dollar

opening higher and we'll find out

what other effects it has on our

markets here and what it means for

our interest rates. A nervous wait

for many residents in Rockhampton.

They're waiting for the city's

swollen Fitzroy River to peak with

the water sitting at 7.45 metres.

It's expected to reach 7.8 later

today. It won't benefit stranded

residents because flood waters are

not yet to subside for another week.

Forget toddler playgrounds, in

Britain there's a major trial under way for pensioner

way for pensioner playgrounds. I

mean it with all respect. The

specially designed parks are bogue

targeted for the young at heart.

It's hoped the play grounds will

help treat a range of complaints

like arthritis but will be used as

a senior's social network. What are

you suggesting, Tarsh? You're the

more mature. Fantastic. Look at

these elderly people and I think,

"Heart attack." I looked at the

story before we came on air and

they all love it and think it's

great. And to prevent arthritis great. And to prevent arthritis and

osteoporosis and hang out with

their friends. Terrific but do be

careful. When I went to Macau for

this show last year, they had

similar things for everybody, just

to get people out and being active.

If they can't afford a gym

membership, they use these mimi

gyms in the park. It's a great idea.

I might go find one and meet some

elderly ladies. So nice to see you.

Always my pleasure. See you later.

Have a great day. We'll see you

later. Plenty more of 9am for you

this morning. See you after this.

Dust, it's here, there, everywhere - it's like a never-ending battle. The fuss of feathering and that dirty old dust cloth that flicks the dust everywhere. Faye, it seems dusting's one of those chores nobody likes? Absolutely.

Marianne, dust has finally met its match. Time for you to meet the amazing GoDuster. What's so amazing about the GoDuster? The GoDuster is a portable, motorised and completely cordless duster that gets in to all those hard-to-reach places where dust accumulates. The motorised head of the GoDuster spins at 250 revs per minute, creating a static charge on the tens of thousands of dusting fingers. The static charge combined with the spinning head

attracts the dust to the head, picking it up like a magnet. All you have to do

is push the start button and wave it like a wand. It's that easy. There's no wiping, reaching or sneezing? You've got it. You can clean a whole lot more in the fraction of the time you used to take. You can really do the things you enjoy doing. One of the worst things about dusting is getting in those smaller areas and dealing with those delicate items like photo frames and glassware. Not any more. The GoDuster makes it so quick and easy. The thing I like about it most is the way it conforms to pretty much any shape and size. You can clean easily without having to move anything. That's great. Yeah, I know. Let's check out what else it can do.

For blinds, it's the best - you can get each and every speck of dust the first time, every time. Use it for grids and grills and it's fantastic around the fireplace. The GoDuster is great for all your electronics. Use it for plasmas and LCD screens, DVD players and game consoles. It's the fastest way to clean shelves and books

without having to move them.

And even though it's powerful, it's gentle enough to use on stemware or delicate flowers. The GoDuster slides easily into every nook and cranny

and gets into places that your hand can't And it's safe enough to use even on the most expensive antique wood furniture. Are there any extra accessories that come with the GoDuster? Absolutely - the GoDuster also comes with interchangeable heads. You get the extra long head, perfect for reaching and dusting delicate chandeliers or getting into those creepy cobwebs in the corner, as well as the medium head which is great for everyday cleaning. And when you call and order today, we'll also include the Mini Duster head, free. Easily clean inside your car or computer keyboard. It's also great for small figurines. That's three heads when you order your GoDuster today. Just rinse your GoDuster under running water and it dries as good as new. Call now to order your own GoDuster and spend less time dusting and more time doing the things you really enjoy.

Here's how to order: With the extra long head, the medium head and the mini head, a huge value all for just three easy payments of $19.95, plus delivery. We're not through yet - call now and use your credit card and you'll also receive the GoDuster extension handle, a $15 value free. Now you can reach those places you couldn't get to before. Plus we'll include this handy wall caddie to hold your GoDuster and all three dusting heads - another $15 value free. All this for just three easy payments of $19.95.

Coming up - the 40/40 principle, a

targeted CV and the all-important

2-minute phone call. All you need

to know to secure the job of your dreams.

The job interview we've all been

there, cold sweats, garbled

introductions, the little white lie

and the quick exit. James Lynch

lives his life thinking that if

nothing is ever solved, nothing is

ever created. Good morning, James.

It's an interesting motto, and I

think that motto was accredited to

the CEO of IBM? Is that right?

Absolutely. And it works right

across life. If you're not

promoting or selling yourself or a

product or a political party or a

TV show, then the message isn't

getting out. It's interesting when

you're going for a job, the thought

of selling yourself, you're going

to want to go in there and pump

yourself up? Your probably going to

want to embellish what's the truth?

Yes and no. People aren't naturally

comfortably selling themselves. Up

to the age of seven, people say,

"You're great." Then you get to

seven and you can't say that and

then there is peer pressure. When

you go in to the interview, people

tend to fly under the radar. But if

you can't sell yourself, then who

else can? Where is the balance in

that then? Some people will go in

there and probably go too far. A

bit over the top with selling

themselves and come across perhaps

big-headed and then you go in and

not sell yourself enough. Are there

key points? What I say to people is

be modestly confident in yourself

and your abilities and put value on

your skills. What people do is say,

"I'm a manager of a unit or I'm a

teacher." And they leave it there

and expect you to know. If you go

in to an interview with a whole lot

of managers and teachers, you need

to differentiate yourself and put

value. And you node to quantify

that you have a large budge skpt

you manage 300 people. You've

created a new fram and increased

sales by 20 -- program and

increased sales by 20%. Let's go

back to the start. Where do we

typically go wrong? Are we typically
