The television industry is mourning the loss of one of its most popular young talents. 'All Saints' star Mark Priestley has taken his life after a battle with depression - his death leaving fans in shock.

He was the young nurse on the Australian medical drama 'All Saints'. His character, Dan Goldman, married his on-screen sweetheart just two nights ago. But there's a very different story behind the television character. Ricki, I love you and I want to marry you today. Mark Priestley's body was found on an awning in Sydney's Market Street.

He'd been staying at the Swissotel. It's believed Priestley had been struggling with severe depression for some time. It is an illness in one sense that is insidious. uBut it is an illness that can attack all. The industry is in shock. Colleagues have described him as clever, witty, a great inventor. A vitality, a humour and a great clown. And in these days we need our clowns - it's so depressing out there. And sometimes the darkness can be overwhelming as is the case here. Mark Priestley graduated from NIDA in 1999 most well-known productions from 'Blue Heelers' to 'The Secret Life of Us'. and stop being such a bore. Dig yourself out of this hole and stop be ng such a bore.

He could be quite a handful. While his death has hit his 'All Saints' cast members hard. His co-star Jolene Anderson is said to be in shock. She was involved in a car crash yesterday and is recovering from an arm injury. Tributes have also been pouring in for Priestley on fan sites. His mother Kate is flying to Sydney to return his body to Perth.

Mark was 32. Barack Obama has made history as the first black man to be nominated by a major party to run for US president. And he let everyone know he's the boss by upstaging Bill and Hillary Clinton at the Democratic convention. The timing was perfect. Hello, Democrats! Barack Obama appearing at the convention to make sure Democrats remembered HE was the star of the show,

alongside his running mate, Joe Biden. I think the convention's gone pretty well so far. What do you think? Earlier it seemed the party believed Bill Clinton was the man of the moment, greeting him as a hero.

CHEERING Although clearly enjoying the adulation, the former president fell into line. I love this! And I thank you. But we have important work to do tonight. I am here, first, to support Barack Obama. In the official business of this convention,

the delegates voted for the nominee and, in a nod to Hillary Clinton's historic campaign, her name was included in the nominating process. The former first lady just couldn't resist the chance to be the centre of attention for just a little bit longer, withdrawing her name on the floor of the convention. I move Senator Barack Obama of Illinois

This program is captioned live. A Sydney celebrity doctor has apologised for letting a patient perform a sex act on him. He's told the Medical Tribunal

it was a moment of weakness caused by his huge workload. Dr Martyn Mendelsohn is no stranger to cameras. The ear, nose and throat specialist made a name for himself appearing on reality television. But today, an ugly reality as the doctor was forced to face the New South Wales Medical Tribunal. He admits he allowed a 22-year-old patient perform oral sex on him during an after-hours consultation at his Sydney surgery. He says: The doctor says, after sexual contact, he finished fixing the woman's nose.

The doctor today apologised, saying his moment of weakness happened because he was working long hours, had lots of responsibility and a 3-month waiting list. Despite the investigation, Dr Mendelsohn continues to see patients here at his Chatswood surgery. Since the incident, however, he has been forced to have a minder present during every consultation.

A decision on the doctor's future will be made in the coming weeks. Gabrielle Boyle, Ten News. A Wollongong teacher is facing the sack after being charged with downloading child pornography. Robert Dunwoodie was arrested earlier this year as part of a worldwide crackdown on child porn on the internet. 43-year-old Robert Dunwoodie of Figtree was arrested in May during the global crackdown

after explicit images were released by a European gang onto the Internet. Federal Police raided the house he was occupying at Lake Heights, allegedly discovering 43 pornographic pictures had been downloaded on his computer. Wollongong court was told the images depicted children between the ages of 6 and 12 posing in a sexually explicit manner and engaging in sexual acts.

Dunwoodie is an English and history teacher employed at Wollongong Performing Arts High School. He was one of three teachers arrested during Operation Centurion, in which a total of 107 Australians have now been charged. He's yet to enter a plea to one count of downloading child pornography. Two charges of possessing child porn were dropped today.

Dunwoodie has been stood down on full pay pending the outcome of this case.

As part of his bail conditions, he's been ordered not to enter or loiter within 100 metres of a school. The Education Department says Dunwoodie will be sacked if he enters a guilty plea or is convicted. The case was adjourned until October so a psychiatric report can be prepared. John Hill, Ten News. Kevin Rudd has ramped up his fight with education unions.

He's told them to get with the 21st century and stop opposing his plan to get rid of bad teachers and schools. shape up or ship out, Kevin Rudd is demanding teachers but he's promising more resources, today unveiling $40 million for programs to improve reading, writing and arithmetic. Multiply, multiply, multiply. This Canberra school, one of 29 nationwide to receive the special funding.

Its principal not happy with the threat of the sack. Those kind of punitive measures aren't particularly helpful. 9.5 out of 10 teachers are doing an absolutely fantastic job anyway. Many parents agree. I don't think they should be sacked but I think they should be accountable I don't think they're given enough incentive, and that sort of thing. especially through pay packages

The Government says it's ready to. The Opposition taunts - "What are you waiting for?" Mr Rudd has the power now

to withhold money from States who have not complied with this and the challenge for him is will he do so? He may not have to - at least one premier can already count. they have a big cheque book.

At the end of the day And at the end of the day if they are determined to push this things through, I guess they will.

The unions not so accommodating. I will say to our friends in the teachers' unions across Australia,

are fantastic people, and many of them

We're pretty close actually, yeah. he should do on the field. And I just tell him what I think Campese says mother's home truths have been vital, helping him keep faith with his ability during four years in and out of first grade. Even if I didn't have any confidence, I'd always come home and Mum would always say, "You're better than what you played on the weekend," because she's one of the only people who's seen every single game of my life. From a bright-eyed kid, Campese is poised to break into Australia's World Cup squad, perhaps following his famous uncle - Wallaby icon David Campese - to the top of his sport. He's the attacking heartbeat the in-form Green Machine, like he showed with a recent 36-point haul against Penrith -
