It's not good enough for Kevin Rudd from the Labor Party to simply expel these people Labor severs all ties with trade unions. State Governments have released a scathing report on Australia's public health system. The study accuses Canberra of underfunding public hospitals by more than $1 billion and claims GPs are becoming less accessible and more expensive. Plainly, this is just a pre-election stunt.

The Government says it has honoured all its healthcare commitments. Our politicians are under pressure tonight to agree to similar random drug testing to our sporting stars. The call has come from controversial Liberal Senator Bill Heffernan, one of the Prime Minister's closest confidants. If there's evidence that there's a problem with politicians then they should be treated no differently from anyone else. I'm not quite sure what tree Bill's barking up here at the moment and Bill's barked up a few trees in recent times. Senator Heffernan says he has no evidence of illegal drug taking in Parliament. A war-time mystery which has baffled military minds for decades has been solved tonight. He'd been the faceless sailor of HMAS 'Sydney'. Not any more. This is chief engineer Allan Wallace Wilson. 645 sailors lost their lives when the 'Sydney' went down off WA on November 19, 1941. Naval officials have not been able to work out the identity of remains returned last October from Christmas Island, Allan Wilson's relatives still shocked to learn the remains could be his. My ears always prick up when I hear the 'Sydney' being mentioned and when they said Allan Wilson, I couldn't believe it. reduced possible matches to 300, Dental records

skeletal examinations breaking that down another 200. The man was buried in white overalls with press studs - only three were issued. Photographic evidence of the three men was needed. Pictures were found of sub-lieutenants Allen King and Frederick Schoch. These images of Allan Wilson complete the puzzle. It was such a tragedy that he went down and he was such a young man. He was such a handsome, debonair young man, who had just become engaged. While the identification process still has some way to go, authorities are at least suggesting that the sailor was an officer. Forensic experts believe the distinctive smiles in two of the photos, aligned with dental records, could solve the mystery. Frank Coletta, Ten News.

CAMERA CLICKS This program is captioned live. A woman has been sexually assaulted at knifepoint after disturbing a man who was attempting to rob her Melbourne home. Shortly after the hour-long assault the man forced his 26-year-old victim to accompany him to a nearby petrol station to buy cigarettes. During that purchase, the female managed to break free and the male ran away. Police are now hunting the man responsible. A century-old church has been all but demolished in Brisbane. in a heartless act of vandalism Among the ruins, a stained-glass tribute to a parishioner's late husband. Audrey Peacock's heart is as shattered as the glass around her. This used to be a monument to her late husband, Neville.

Now - smashed to pieces by a stranger. Well, it means everything. I designed it myself and it's a family window. can never replace. Something insurance

The remainder of the 130-year-old church is in ruins. Pews and windows demolished, walls gouged, the front door torn apart. Neighbours alerted police.

It's absolutely horrible to see, it really is.

The place is devastated. A 24-year-old man has been charged. Does he realise what he's done? And does he feel sorry for what he's done?

Already the church has been inundated with offers of kindness from the community. First and foremost - a few old donated doors to board up the building until it can be fixed. from a temporary room. It's only a physical thing, it's only a building. The church is the people. Emma Dallimore, Ten News. More stories tonight of sexual abuse of Aboriginal children as young as four. South Australia's leaders have admitted it would be naive to think the problem stops at the Northern Territory border.

700 children live on 100,000 square kilometres of traditional land in the northern-most reaches of South Australia. Today they celebrate a new school opening. (All sing) I am, you are, we are Australian. But sadly the young people of the APY Lands aren't immune to the sexual abuse occurring just across the Northern Territory border. It's a big problem for young kids and young 16s. But John Howard's radical plan won't apply here. Instead, the SA Government's sent in a team that will spend the next three months investigating. The preliminary indications are there is significant abuse on the lands. Already investigators are hearing horror stories of abuse on children as young as four. But these people have a kinship that goes deep, making it hard for many to come forward. Obviously these matters are very difficult to talk about and it has to be done in appropriate ways, But the clear message is people want to talk and tell their stories. But it's education that's seen as the way forward. Here at Amata, where new school facilities have just been opened, daily tuition is slowly becoming the way of life. In fact, in the past eight years, attendance has risen to 75%. That's our future for all the people in these communities. In the APY Lands, Brett Clappis, Ten News. In a world first, DNA evidence is to be collected at dog attack scenes in Australia. Rangers will become forensic scientists in an attempt to stamp out the problem of vicious dogs.

These two dogs were the first in Australia to be put down but more dangerous animals could follow their fate. A Melbourne council is now arming its officers with DNA kits, frustrated by owners who fail to take responsibility. Sometimes, you know, "It wasn't my dog."

Other times, "They've never done that before." We want to make sure that if we are going to take it to prosecution, that we've got the confidence to do that and get a good result. Dog owner Andie Talbot has welcomed the initiative. Her terrier, Ivy, has been set upon by the same dogs twice, their owner refusing to keep them on a leash.

I had approached him and said, "You know, you need to do something about your dogs,"

and it's got to the point now where his dogs come in and everyone leaves. There are more than 100,000 dog attacks in Australia each year and half are by repeat offenders. For children it's more likely that a child will be hospitalized as a consequence of a dog attack than as a consequence of a motor vehicle accident. Researchers hope other councils will follow their lead. If people know that their dog can be linked back to a crime scene,

they'll take more effort in making sure their dog is in the backyard and not walking aimlessly around the streets. Kellie Morgan, Ten News. A surprisingly low-key end to an ugly divorce for golfing great Greg Norman and wife Laura. The Shark, who agreed to a $100 million settlement, insists he now wants to get on with life with new girlfriend Chris Evert. A stolen kiss with his new love match, former US tennis champ Chris Evert. Golfing great Greg Norman steps out a single man on the day of his $100 million divorce. Yeah, the settlement has been agreed to,

and that's all I can say. Married to wife Laura for 25 years, they'd fought a bitter battle over the Shark's $300 million business and real estate empire. Nobody likes to go through what you've gone through for the period of time you've been through it, but that's life, and it's over and the terms have been agreed to, and let's move on. to come out swinging, While some expected him

it's believed Norman agreed to his wife's demands partly to spare Chris Evert an embarrassing court appearance. She'd been a long-time friend of the couple. The lovebirds were in full flight on South Australia's Yorke Peninsula, where he's designing a golf course for a new multimillion-dollar resort, Evert clearly relishing her man's new-found freedom.

Oh absolutely, she's enjoying the trip that we've been on. We've been in Korea, we've been in Vietnam. Belinda Heggen, Ten News. One of the great railway engineering feats of the last century has been celebrated in Victoria. It's 150 years since the first long-distance country railway track from Melbourne to Geelong was opened. The 64km line paved the way for the massive Australia-wide rail system that followed. We see the way the railways are constructed these days with great big machines and whatever, it would have all manual and horse labour. Hundreds turned out for the event to enjoy a step back in time. Coming up on Ten News - a police officer charged with murdering his pregnant girlfriend.
