David has got the very arduous task

of looking after his children

during the school holidays this

week. He's gonna have fun. And I'm Kim Watkins. Good morning, everyone.

going to have a hell of a going to have a hell of a week,

isn't he? It's hard work!

Especially when your kids get older.

We've found with the last week with

the kids on holidays, they're just

at each other. What do you do for

Jack? You've got to just keep them

amused. Pictures, museums. It's a

big job, these days. Money, money,

money, those. It's expensive looking after kids during the

school holidays. Plenty of them,

too. Exactly. Kirsten MacKelden has created wedding-magazine business, a multimillion-dollar a few weeks ago. and we met her here on 9am to share the secret of how she did it Now we've convinced her so's we can all have a go. directly by cancer, Even if you haven't been touched

I heard he was very popular in San

good-looking surfer boy like that.

I want to know if he went to the

So. So. Good to see you again. Good So. So. Good to see you again.

to see you. Shaza! This is what he

calls me in the morning. "G'day,

Shagger." I held off this morning.

Saved it for the show. I know. Good

to see you, though. Since I've seen

you last in a professional sense,

you're looking sprightly and more

bubbly and healthy. As you know, I

wasn't very well last year. I've

been working very hard on getting

fit, eating well and doing all

those sorts of things. It's all

good. How was Earth Hour on you

Saturday night? Being the conscious,

you know, woman that you are, you

turned all the lights off? Don't

set me pup! Well, you see, there

was a small issue... hang on, let

me start with you, first! Don't

answer a question with a question!

You go first! OK. Well, there was...

there was a small degree of, ah,

opposition from my husband, whos

awaintent on watching the football.

So the television stayed on and the

heater stayed on, but all the other heater stayed on, but all the

lights went out. So there you go.

What about you?! Well, I was

working. So I actually was at the

football calling an AFL game. So

there was enough lighting to, you

know, light up a small African

country! Laugh That's the way it is,

unfortunately. It sounded like it

was quite a big success. You look

at the statistics in the paper this

morning, and everyone seemed to

enjoy the experience. It was an

amazing experience. As we know, it

started in Sydney last year. In

Chicago, apparently, lights in more

than 200 city buildings were dimmed,

lights also went out at the famed

Watt Arun temple in Bangkok,

Thailand. Shopping centres in

Manila, London's City Hall, in

Athens, Ireland... it was a real

good response around the world. We

all got into work this morning. At

the Ten Network, they have given

everyone a native tree to plant.

There's 230 of us, I think, roughly,

at the network here. And they say

if we all plant this tree, it'll

basically be the equivalent to vic

taking, I think, 18 cars off the

road every day. There you go. That

was a nice little gesture. It was.

It was. I'm allerg took water so

I'll probably have to give it to

our farmer down... It's a wattle,

is it? Native wattle. There's a

farmer coming in who will put the

trees in himself for us, who's

coming in. It's great. It's all

about doing our built, however

small it is. Every little bit helps.

It does. It does. Lots happening in It does. It does. Lots happening

the news, Kim. Take it away. Very

busy news day. Olympic

busy news day. Olympic qualifier

Nick D'Arcy will be questioned by

police today over a fight during a

night out in Sydney. The

20-year-old allegedly assaulted fellow swimmer Simon Cowley,

leaving him with serious facial injuries.

Just hours after securing a spot in

the Beijing Olympics, Nick D'Arcy's

dream is in danger of shattering.

The 20-year-old allegedly breaking

the nose, jaw and eye socket of

Commonwealth Games gold medallist

Simon Cowley during an alleged bar brawl on Saturday night in

brawl on Saturday night in Sydney. Police and Swimming Australia are

now investigating the incident. The Australian Olympic Committee

says it will await the outcome

before deciding whether or not to

dump the swimmer. D'Arcy has since

withdrawn from the Australian short

course championships. Earlier this

week, he'd admitted working with

head coach Allan Thompson on

discipline. I suppose you don't

really have a lotf orespect for a

lot of things and, um, you don't

really act the way you probably

should. And Tomo's been helping me

with that, trying to turn me into a

gentleman, he says, before Beijing.

Hopefully we're on track for that.

Well, it's another example of...

what's happened in the football

community, et cetera. Let's assume

he's innocent until proven guilty,

but there's a lot of people calling

this morning for his head as far as

competing at the Olympics. What do

you think? Well... guilty or

innocent, ah, no. Let him go to the

Olympics. I think so too. I think

he's entitled to have, um, I think

he's entitled to, um, to have a go.

He's earned the right to go to the

Olympics. He'll pay a big price for

this. So I just wonder what people

think at home. Do you think he

should go to the Olympics? Or

should he be kicked off the Olympic

team? We'd be interested in your

emails. Regardless of whether he's

found guilty orinant insent, should

he go? Definitely should go. He's

made a mistake, obviously. We don't

know all the details yet. It would know all the details yet. It

be too harsh a call to ban him from

the Palestinian team. Let us know what you think.

Five people are dead after a small

plane crash under to a residential

area near London. The Cessna came

with. wown just moments after take-off, down just moments after take-off,

This is where the plane crashed,

that end of the last street on a that end of the last street on a

housing estate. The pilot's final

words on his radio were "We're

going down. We're going down." The

runway he was trying to reach was

less than five miles away. The

aircraft hit two houses as it

crashed, but it seems the pilot was

able to overt something much, much

worse. A plane has just come flying

over our garage, over our wall, and

into the next-door neighbour's,

gone entotheir main house. Then we

heard a massive explosion. It was

just a ball of fire, just complete carnage. First reports from

carnage. First reports from the

emergency services said there were

only minor injuries among people

on the estate. But there were five

people on the aircraft, including

two crew. It's understood they'd

taken off from Biggin Hill, heading

for France. But the pilot

immediately put out a mayday call,

reporting severe engine vibrations.

He was trying to get back to Biggin

Hill when the plane came down.

The PM is taking it a bit easier

today as he continues the US leg of

his world tour. Kevin Rudd has

returned to Washington after a

lightning trip to New York, where

he pushed for an Australian seat on

the United Nations Security Council. He's Kevin Rudd from Australia and he tells the UN Secretary-General he's here to help... We hope to do some more good things with the United Nations. ..and he means it. On the agenda - a seat at the world's top table. We tried and failed for the Security Council 12 years ago. Another bid was ditched when the cost of canvassing for votes was put at $35 million. I think 30 years is a fair enough old wait between drinks, and I think it's time we actually got cracking and see what support we can get.

But there was embarrassment for the PM when a Japanese journalist asked him why Tokyo was being snubbed on this trip. There hasn't been even a telephone conversation between you and Prime Minister Fukuda. From time to time there are a number of foreign heads of government with whom I've not had telephone contact. The Prime Minister shares the Secretary-General's view that progress on the Bali roadmap for climate change is too slow

and in danger of derailing the world's post-Kyoto response to cut global emissions. In New York City, Paul Bongiorno, Ten News.

morning, Kirsten. Good morning! I

don't know about 'empire', but on

the way! Please tell! The small-business commun The

small-business community is a very

powerful force, as you said. In

fact tx may be surprising to a lot

of people to know that, out of of people to know that, out of the

1.2 small-to-medium businesses 1.2 small-to-medium businesses in

this country, 69% of them actually

operate from home. And the ABS, the

latest statistics are showing that

female entrepreneurship is

definitely on the rise. Oh! It's

not easy, though, running a small

business. I have my own small

business, and there's so much red

tape and there is so much

accounting process - just getting it

started is a headache enough, isn't

it? It is. It is. Look, there are

some things that we would obviously suggest that you really invest a

lot of time and research into

before you even get started. There

are some great sites around the

country that, um, the State

governments have set up for women

who are interested, or people who

are interested, in getting started

in their own businesses. Before we

talk about that, let's recap on

your story. It's a fabulous success

story. Thank you. I get such a kick

out of young women in Australia

starting their own businesses

against the odds. Absolutely

against the odds. In my case, we

launched 'Real Weddings' magazine.

There's a 99% failure rate of

publishing and magazines. 99%?!

Only 1% get to their third-year

mark. It's extraordinary. We were

fortunate in many ways but we

worked really hard at it. Last time,

I mentioned, we had some really

character-building challenges. So,

for me, it was about having passion

and then being able to see a gap in

the market and be able to fulfil

that. What is it with - maybe this

is a boy thing, but with wedding

magazine - a lot of the women that

buy them are married! I don't know

about that. Well... my information!

Initially after the big day, I

think they find it a bit hard to

let go and, in my case, I couldn't

let go, so I launched a magazine!

Do you read wedding magazines? No,

I don't. I was engaged and married

within six weeks, so it was all so

fast. What was the reason for

that?! I think my husband thought that?! I think my husband thought I

was going to chicken out, so he

decided to get in fast You didn't

have a background in publishing.

Ordinarily, the advice would be go

with something you know. Absolutely.

We're finding there's a couple We're finding there's a couple of

different ways that women tend different ways that women tend to

get into their own businesses. The

first would be that maybe they've

got a background in a corporate environment or commercially. Say,

in marketing or public relations.

Then when they have children, it's

a good opportunity for them to

start small and maybe take some freelancing work or some

contracting work. And that then

gradually grows and allows them the

flexibility to work around their

own situation, if you like. The

second way would be that people see

a gap in the market. And I call

that the a-ha moment, when you

realise - we've all had that experience, I think, where you

think "Why isn't there somebody

doing THAT?" A thing that does that,

yeah. Particularly as a mum, I

think you see opportunities all the

time. So it's about having the

courage to begin the process of

"Gee, I wonder if there is that

something out there." A great

example - one of my clients, a

great woman called joHannah Johnson,

who was a graphic designer by trade.

Through the process of her own

wedding, couldn't find a gown she

wanted, and really turned her

skills in creativity into something extraordinary, in and and in five

years has gone on to become one of

Australia's most beautiful gown

designers in this country. When I

first met her, she had literally

just had her first baby. So she's

built that company and creativity

along the way with having two

wonderful children. Being a

stay-at-home mother is one of the

world's hardest jobs, no doubt

about that. Indeed. I guess there's

a lot of wasted talent, if you

know what I'm saying. A lot of mums

are farce forced to stay at home

or want to stay at home. A lot of

talent goes unutilised. It's a

great opportunity. Did you find it

hard to juggle early on with the

children and the time? Without

question. What do you mean "early

on"?! Particularly early on... Kim

and I had a very quick word before

the show. Very honest conversation.

A very honest conversation about

how important it is to have how important it is to have a

support network. It's really... I

don't want to sit here and glamorise how easy it is to get

into your own business, because the

reality is that a lot of small businesses actually work sometimes

longer hours than those people that

are working in commercial

situations. The difference is that

we, as mothers, and mum-preneurs,

we get a chance to choose how we

work and when we work - hopefully.

And I have a situation where, um,

there is crossover between my life.

I'm never just at work or just with

the kids. In many respects, there's

crossover. Combination of both,

yeah. I can be on the phone,

talking with a client, feeding the

baby. As we just saw, yeah! There

are situations - I mean, that's my

life, and I love it. And when I get

cress doctor -- dressed up and see

clients, that's fantastic too. How

important is it to have a

supportive husband? Extraordinary.

I wouldn't be sitting here today

doing this with you without the

help of my husband Tony, who not

only backed my idea financially but

certainly is a 50-50 partner in

everything we do, from parenthood

to business. He has his own

successful business! So we juggle

very well, but we're a great

support network for each other. And

we believe in each other. And

that's really important. There's a

lot of people sitting at home right

now, thinking "I do have this idea."

Are there two or three basic tips

that you can really give someone if

they want to take this route?

Absolutely. The first thing I would

suggest is before you spend any

money whatsoever, take the time out

to do your research. That may to do your research. That may be

that you find half an hour every

day while the baby goes down for a

nap, it could be instead of

watching television at night, you

might spend an hour researching.

The Internet is your best friend.

And it's an amazing tool, because

if I decided today that I love

these shoes and I'd like to become

a shoe manufacturer, within about a

week or two, depending on how much

time I could put into the Internet,

I could find manufacturers in China

and fabric people. It's about starting from scratch and really

trying to found - is To do your

homework. The homework is important,

definitely. As I said earlier, it's

important to go online and have a

look at the tools and check lists that the State governments have set

up for people like us. It's a great

- you're not alone. They're

exitancive, aren't they? They are

fabulous. One of the things you

need to do Absolutely. And you're

not alone. Before any of that,

you've got to make sure the idea is

viable. If you have a chance to

viable. If you have a chance to do

a course, I would suggest to do

that. That's something I did. A

girlfriend of mine was a flight

attendant. She's now a property

manager - she did her real-estate

licence. Another friend was a sound

engineer and is now studying

personal training. It's a good idea

to see if you're really interested

in what you think you might be

interested in. Your course was one

heck of a course. It was. I had an

extraordinary opportunity was

because I was living in New York,

soio studied publishing at New York

University. But it was a very

intense, 3-month course. We're not

suggesting you go out and get a

degree, but it is important, I think, to get the fundamentals think, to get the fundamentals if

you can through a course. Not

everybody does that. What mistakes

did you make that perhaps people

can learn from? I'm sure there can learn from? I'm sure there are

lots along the way. What are the

key ones you learnt from? I think I

underestimated the initial cash

flow. There's a saying that my

husband and I use, and that is "How

many times can you run out of cash?"

And the answer is "Once." You And the answer is "Once." You only

get that opportunity once. You need

enough cash to get you through

particularly the first 18 months. I

guess it varies from what business

you're undertaking. Definitely.

What sort of startp costs are involved in putting together a involved in putting together a

small company? Look, there are a

very of costs. But the thing that

we say is that if you can't afford

legals and good advice initially,

you probably can't afford to set up your business. Um, it's really

important to go to your accountant

and go to - You need the accountant,

the lawyer. Just to get the initial

things set up, I think. There was

also - I've made a note of it here

about the investment angels, or

Angel Investors? There's a website

that you can go to, Investment

Angels Australia, or something

similar to that. That's generally

for the bigger ideas. They'll

bankroll, won't they? Well, it's

not as easy as that. But for

somebody that maybe wants to launch

something much bigger than we can really comprehend, really, if the

idea is good and it's viable, it's

worth taking it out there. And I

just - today, being mum-preneur

Monday, I just really want women,

particularly, to believe that maybe

my idea, no matter how small or how

big, what have I got to lose by

just looking into it and doing a

business plan and not spending any

money yet, but just seeing if this

is viable? Because if it is viable

and you're excited, then chances

are that, you know, if you take it

out to somebody else, whether it's

your bank manager or your friends

and family to get some initial

investment, Angel Investors, if

they're excited, there's an

opportunity there. You've got to be

self-motivated, though. There is disadvantages of working for

yourself. You do need to be

self-motivated. If you're sick or

you're tired, you've got just got

to break through that. Absolutely.

There are some key things that are a mum-preneur or any entrepreneur

would have to have. One of those

would be motivation and the ability

to not give up when the going gets

tough, because, believe me, it will.

It really will. It does. And to be

really organised. And I think

mothers, more than - no offence to

you, Steve - but mothers more than

anybody really have an incredible

talent to juggle and multitask and

be stirring the meal and checking an

email and doing some homework over

here. We're a pretty talented lot.

I was going to say, what is it I was going to say, what is it

about, you ago, pregnancy and

childbirth and motherhood that sort

of - that, I don't know, that just

brings out something incredible in

us? I think it's a change of life

unlike any other. I think it makes

you appreciate and prioritise

what's really important in my life.

And do I really want to be going

back to what I was doing before?

I'm at home. Maybe I have a bit of

an opportunity to try something

that I want to do. And a lot of

people get into businesses really

for three reasons. One is financial

security. One is that they really

want to explore their creativity.

And one is flexibility. Now,

ideally, you want all three ideally, you want all three of

those things. But you don't have to

be making a million dollars to

follow your passion. Or a hobby,

even, and turn it into a

money-making exercise. And we'll

have lots of those details on our

website too to follow up. Great to

see you again. Thank you for coming

in. Thanks a lot. I'm sure a lot of

mums will be going straight on the

Internet to do their research.

Great to have you in. Thank you.

If you have ever faced a life-threatening battle like cancer,

you know how important any support

can be. The efforts of all

charities, of course, are greatly

appreciated, but for the Medlock

family, the unique support of the

children's cancer charity Redkite

was absolutely invaluable. Jeremy

Medlock was diagnosed with cancer

on his 16th birthday. Some present,

hey. Redkite helps to pay for the

treatment costs and tutoring to

stop Jeremy falling behind at

school. Jeremy and his father Peter

join us this morning to talk about

their journey, along with Redkite

CEO Jenni Seton. Thanks for coming

in. That was one hell of a shock on

your 16th birthday, wasn't it? Wasn't the best present in the

world? How did you react? It took

place over a few days, going

between doctor to doctor, getting

lots of different diagnosis, people

thinking it's possibly cancer and

then not cancer. In the end, when

my orthopaedic surgeon out at RPA

said that it cause cancer, it was

this massive shock - it's like the

world stood still and I just saw -

I didn't really know much about

canc, and straight away I thought

"I'm going to die. This is the end."

I thought about all the things I'd

miss in my life that my nephew not

being born - not finishing school,

going to university. Then when going to university. Then when my

surgeon said "It's treatable,

you'll get through this," it was

this huge relief and the world

didn't seem so bad anymore. I

didn't understand what chemotherapy

was, I didn't know what my

treatment would involve. I was very

naive about it. I just felt so

happy that I knew I was going to

survive, but I didn't know what was

ahead of me. As we know,

particularly with cancer, there's

no rules or regulations on who gets

it, how old you are, why. Being a

parent, I'm sure it must have parent, I'm sure it must have been

the most horrendous feeling. In

some respects, you feel so helpless.

It was horrific. My wife and I jurs

burst into tear, asked "Why's this

happening to us, where do we go?"

Luckily we had a medical team

around us that were able to take

control, who were able to say "This

is what's going to happen." It made

it much easier. Still, it was the

worst nightmare you could imagine

for a parent. How did you find

Redkite? They started with us

Redkite? They started with us from

the time we started the whole

journey. Jeremy started

chemotherapy on Christmas Eve. As you can imagine, it wasn't

you can imagine, it wasn't shaping

up to be much of a Christmas. We

were sitting in the room in the

hospital ward. There's a knock on

the door. Someone brings in a

Christmas hamper. It was Redkite.

It wasn't so much the hamper that

was important, it was the thought

that went into it. A couple of

presents wrapped up for Jeremy to

bring in for himself. And despite

hospital rules, a bottle of

champagne for his mum and a Crown

Logger for me. They were there all the way, providing

the way, providing physiotherapy

support, financial support, every

way with us. When I read that at

home last night, I burst into tears.

It's so incredibly thoughtful, such

an incredibly thoughtful thing to

do at a time when people's lives

are falling apart. Absolutely. As

Peter said, overnight, a family's

life is turned upset sd down.

Redkite is there to provide the

must-have, the real need, as they

need it. And every family's story

is unique in situations so, we make

sure our services actually take

account of their needs. Look, I'm

amazed. Steve and I were chatting

about this morning - I have never

heard of your charity and it's been

around had a long time. It's been

around for 25 years this year. We

are known as the quiet

are known as the quiet achievers

in child cancer. We get on with it

in the hospital environment and

provide support in homes as well.

Being a quiet achiever is great,

but as we know in the charity world,

it is such a tough business to

raise money. The higher-profile, in

some ways, the better. So how -

Absolutely. It must be quite a

difficult thing to deal with. We

want to shed that tag, absolutely.

And we used to be call the Malcolm

Sergeant Cancer Fund for Children.

Some people might remember us for

that name. Redkite is obviously an

easier name to remember. That's

really making a difference for us.

And it has relevance to what we do,

because the red represents our past,

so Malcolm wore a red carnation,

and the kite represents family, the

sense of journey, you know, you

can't always control where you're

going. But it's also uplifting and

providing that sense of hope. It's

such a battle for funding, isn't

it? There's so many worthy

charities. How do you cope and how

is it all going for Redkite? Well,

we have a wonderful support base

from corporate and other community

organisations that really do make a

difference. Although we don't

receive any government funding, so

we do rely on the community. Not

many do, do they? No. No. And the

support - people relate to what we

do because it's so real and

grassroots. Families can really see

"Goodness me, if that was me, I'd

have to give up my job at a time

when expenses go through the roof.

Isn't it great that there's an

organisation thinking of that, and

counselling anditutering for

Jeremy?" It's all those needs that

are thought through. And people

relate to that. They want to

support something that makes a difference. I'm sure tutoring and

schoolwork was the first thing that

you'd like to do! Thanks very much!

But it's all about keeping you

involved with school and involved

with your friends, isn't it? Yeah.

I was deged at the end of Year 10,

so I'd just finished one year of

school and I had summer holidays. When I was first diagnosed, I

thought "That's alright, I'll get

over it in a few weeked and get

back at school." In the end, I

missed all of Year 11 and a lot of

syllabus and information that I'd

need for my end of school exams I

completely lost. It was - we made

the decision early on in my treatment that I didn't want to

repeat the year that I lost. I

wanted to finish school with my

friends and keep going with my life.

Sure. So it real ay was very

important that I had the access to

tutoring to help me get back to

school and then I'd go to

thituters and explain to them the

things that I didn't understand,

and then they'd take me back and

teach it all to me, so I was able

to finish school. Because we need

to point out too, with the

osteosicoma, the bone cancer you

had, both you and your wife gave up

your jobs to care for him during

treatment, didn't you? There was no

option. Someone had to be with him

24 hours a day. We both gave up

work. We spent the year virtually

living in hospital. One of us was

there all the time. Sometimes both

of us. We stayed there at night. We

couldn't work for 12 months. You've couldn't work for 12 months. You've

got two older kids? We do have.

They were fantastic. But they've

got their own life. Our daughter

was having a baby in this. Our

first grand-daughter was born the

day Jeremy had an operation to save

his leg. They did everything they

could and brought the family much

closer together. Looking back at it

now, what has it meant to the

family and what sort of experiences

have you got out of it? It's

something that no-one else can understand. We've shared this

incredible journey, these

incredibly hard times. We all work

together to get Jeremy through it.

And even though we don't talk about

it a lot, it's always there and we

feel much closer for it. Certainly

we have a much closer relationship

between Jeremy and his mum and

myself, just because of what you've

been through. The whole family has

shared that. At the end of the day, we're much stronger and closer for

it. Could you imagine having to go

back to work in the middle if it

wasn't for the work of Redkite? We

couldn't have done it. People there

who were trying to keep up a job

without the support - we were able

to concentrate on Jeremy totally.

That's all we could do. Given the

That's all we could do. Given the

fact that multitask when you're

looking after families battling

this horrible disease, I'm sure

it's a very expensive process. This

wouldn't be a cheap, quick,

in-and-out type of charity.

Obviously it's very involved. The

average treatment period is two

years for leukaemia, without relapse. There is enormous

disruption. And the support that we

provide is from the time of diagnosis right through treatment

and beyond. So you're right - it

costs a lot of money to be able to

provide the support we do. And it's

support that families need when

they need it. So we provide 12

services, and they're in the

financial, emotional and

educational support. So that is a

lot of support to provide within

that range. Absolutely. And without

government funding, and -- we couldn't survive without the

support of the community. So you're

right. The average cost to support

a family just with the basic needs

is around $2,000 for a year. Mm.

Wow. It's extraordinary too,

because the cancer cure rate for

childhood leukaemia and cancer I

think is 80% or something. It is.

So you are dealing with not only

the issue and the shock and the

obvious illness of having cancer,

but you're looking at what

for the rest of their lives, aren't

you? That's right. When you think

that over 1,000, around 1,200

children and young people, because

we help up to the age of 21, by the

way, are diagnosed. There's around

up to 5,000 children and young

people at any time going through

treatment. It is a lot of people to

be helping. So what's happening in

your life now, Jeremy? I'm in my

second year of uni, just studying,

working. I'm back to a normal life

now. And it's great to be back

there. But I think it will always

be in the back of my mind, and none

of us will ever leave it. But a lot

of the time we look back on it very

happily and realise how, because of

what we went through, how we've

changed and I think because of

that I've become a much stronger,

more confident person. And I get to

do the chance - I have the chance

to do stuff like this and help

charities such as Redkite, which is

just great. So it's all going well. just great. So it's all going well.

And physically, how are you? Oh,

I'm pretty much as good as I'm

going to be. For my operation to

remove the tumour, they took out

all of the bones in my right leg

and replaced them with titanium

rods and I lost 80% of the muscle

in my leg as well. I walk with a

limp, I fall over, but it's the

best I'm going to do, and I have a

leg to walk with now. So I'm a

success story, I think! And cancer

is in remission. Yes, for

orthanother two years. It's just

fantastic for you. I'm so thankful

there are groups like yours willing

to support people and step in there

when really, the last thing I'm

sure on your mind, Peter, a thet

time, is to put up your hand asking

for help - you're just trying to

swim through, it I'm guessing. When

were there when we need them. We

didn't know what we needed, but

they were there all the time.

Jeremy at times got really

depressed and couldn't talk with us.

He formed a bond to a musical

therapist there, who was funded by

Redkite also. It was fantastic to

know that there was someone there

jairmied could talk to. Your

support network must be huge too.

You must have a lot of different

businesses that come to the party.

We do. We're very fortunate that

We do. We're very fortunate that we

have great corporate support and

people in the community, schools, individuals, and there's so many

ways people can get involved. We

have many corporates that support

particular projects so they can

feel very bonded to a particular

area that we're supporting. But we

would love to get more corporate

support. We would love to have more

towns and communities be involved,

schools, individuals. And there's

so many ways that you can make a

difference. And we're also very

proud of the fact that we don't

ring into people's home and ring into people's home and we

don't solicit on the street. We're

one of the charities that raise

money in a very respectful way. And

so we do need people to get behind

us.O and sew if they ring Redkite,

we'll have endless ideas for people

to be able to support us! Sure you

will. It's great to meet all of you

and thank you so much for coming in

and sharing your stories. Thank you.

If someone was wondering around a

food market yelling "shankilous

bast roma," what would you think?

Swearing at me? I don't think so. The kitchen after this.

This program is captioned live.

Time once again for a major treat

in our kitchen with special guests

George Calombaris and Shane Delia.

This morning, you're going to cook

something I've got no idea how to

pronounce! Good morning. Good morning. Let's start from the

beginning. George, you're a bit beginning. George, you're a bit of

a regular in here. But your buddy

here is a Niue. Yes. I brought my

mate. Shane and I did our

apprenticeship together many moons

ago. We've just opened opbrilliant

new restaurant called Maha, which

we launched last night down in Bond

Street. Shane has brought along a

couple of beautiful iningredients.

The food sumazing and we thought

we'd do a bit of a quail dish today.

Beautiful Alastair, who's one of

our regular chefs on the show, our

fabulous mad Irish chef, of course

flew down for the opening and

arrived an hour after it finished.

Yes, typical Irish style. Wanted Yes, typical Irish style. Wanted to

finish the leftover wine. Would

this be something you can knock up

at home? Easily. Quarters is

actually quite the foodie. You love cooking. I was saying to the boys

before the show, I very, very

rarely would eat Middle Eastern

food Me too. We just don't get the

opportunity. You could do this on opportunity. You could do this on

the barbie at home. We do it on a

big open flame-grilled barbie at

the restaurant. That's a 7-pepper

spice, with cardman and cumeen and

all that kind of stuff tin. And

cinnamon too? Yes, and putting a bit

of honey and olive oil with it.

We'll marinate the quail in that.

You can leave that sitting

overnight or for as long as you

need to. We put it on a barbecue or

a char grill like we have here.

Give me the full name of the dish.

The dish we're doing is The dish we're doing is sabba

baharat marinated quail with

shanklish and fig salad and some

basturama there. Which is like a

cured Armenian ham, sort of like cured Armenian ham, sort of like a

Middle Eastern version of

prosciutto. A bit more of a pungent

flavour. The other thing we're

doing is making an orange bossm and

vanilla vin guret. Orange blossom

is normally used in sweets. It's

great with quail and other thing

like that. Where could you buy

that? Any Middle Eastern deli or

supermarket has that. Put a bit of

the orange blossom... Oh, wow!

Smells like perfume. How does it taste?! Smells like my mother-in-law. She wears it in

perfume. Careful!! You won't last

too long! A little bit of vinegar

and honey. She'll be watching, I

guarantee you. No, but she really does!

Good morning. Crews from 18 fire trucks are battling a blaze explain it. It's really beautiful.

In Arabic, it's called butle, I

think purse lining as it's known in

Australia. It's grown from sort of

like little Arabic backyards. We

get it from a Lebanese supplier who

supplies it, um... Is it a bit

buttery or something? A bit buttery,

lemony. It's beautiful! Shankilous

is Lebanese, or Middle Eastern,

cheese. It's like a fermented

yoghurt rolled in zaha, like a

Lebanese thyme. Is that freely

available? Quartsers taking all

these details. He'll be cooking at

it tonight! You can get all this

stuff at a Middle Eastern grocery.

There's a lot of places in

Melbourne that sell them. Any country-style market have

shankilous and all these bits and

pieces. We'll mix it all up and

some of the vinegar we just made.

Absolutely stunning. Simple, isn't

it? Really simple cooking, just

about fresh stuff. Labna, almost

like a thick yoghurt. We will pipe

a little bit on there. Little a little bit on there. Little bit

of the salad. Maha is open Thursday, Friday, Saturday nights until Friday, Saturday nights until 3:00

in the morning bs you'll be able to

get supper. 3:00 in the morning?!

So, after the footy, Quarters, come

on down. Is this a new thing injure

mean, are we eating later as a

general rule? Melburnians are sort

of known for very, you know, like

to eat a little bit later. I think

we're taking the European trait by

sort of eating at 9:00, stretching

our day out. In Far our day out. In Far North

Queensland, and Darwin, I mean,

they do that too, but it's so late,

-- because it's so hot, they like

to wait till it cools down.

Especially at the venue at Maha,

and the food as well, it suits the

late-night dining. Years ago,

late-night dining. Years ago, you

used to have entree, main course

and dessert. Now people are sharing,

enjoying it more. Suffa is what

Arabic dining is about. It's all shared. There's three or four

different courses. This dish - is -

That's the way to go. Much better

that way. If I went into a Middle

Eastern restaurant, I wouldn't know

where to start. Can you go in and

go "Give me a tasting plate"?

Definitely. The souffle, people get

to taste everything and have a chat.

In terms of finding these ingredients or using something else

you might have in your kitchen, are

any - for instance, if you haven't

got access to the labna or suddenly

get to the good part and realise

you're missing out, what can you -

are kpwa there any things you can

substitute? You can use natural

yoghurt. Labna is a thicker yoghurt,

with thicker moisture. You could

use yoghurt. If you didn't have

shanklish, you could use a feder.

Watercress also. The way these

dishes come about is my father

father-in-law grows butle and I

thought it would be nice with some

quail, so we had the barbecue out

the back. True genius. It happens

all the time. It happens all the

time. How are you coping with the

press club as well as this new

restaurant? It's funny, because we

did our apprenticeship together and

that was a lot of fun. Now, the

whole lead-up to getting Maha open

has been great Excuse me! Don't be

shy! It's all good. One big happy

family - 80 staff across the two

venues now. We're constantly

commuting to both restaurants. It's

great. Looks good. Looks good. If

you would like George and Shane's

recipe for grilled quail... That is

amazing. Give me the proper name?

Maha Bar & Grill. Not that! Sabba

baharat marinated quail with

shanklish and salad. You can

download the details from our

website. It works for you? It's

great. (Laughs) The flavours are

fantastic. That tops it off. It

gives it that uniqueness. There you

go. Thank you, gentlemen. Good go. Thank you, gentlemen. Good to

see you. And good luck with the new restaurant. Back after this.

restaurant. Back after this. Thank you.

I'm sure if you're like me, you've

got lots of digital photos on the

computer but very rarely do we go

and print them out and get a professional portrait done. Well,

Shane Monopoly can help you out

there with skhrues skhrues. Hello,

Shane. How are you? Very good. It's

true, though, people don't print

out photo even if they take out photo even if they take them

themselves these days? The average

photo people take, they feel it's

not as good as they like. When you

come to someone like us, obviously

professional lighting, professional

make-up, professional hair. You'll

get a good shot And different person! Before we go to photographs,

let's have a listen to your new jingle. OK.

# Make you look like a movie star

# Doesn't matter who you are

# Put your faith and trust in me

# Come see exclusive Photography

They're a crazy bunch. That's how

relaxed you're gonna feel. It's

really important. A lot of people

don't realise, but when you're getting photographed, if you're

relaxed and comfortable, it shows

in the pictures. Absolutely!

Nothing worse than pictures where

people are wearing the forced grin.

You provide the make-up and

lighting and everything. Let's have

a look at some examples of the work

we do. We'll even sing the jingle

to you when you come in Oh, lovely! Theefrpblgtsz are examples of

everyday stkpwiz girl whose come in,

mum, dads and families. Mother's

Day is very close now and we're

almost getting to the point where if

you don't book now for Mother's Day,

you might miss out. You need to get

on the phone today. It really

doesn't matter who you are. And I

know there's a lot of people out

there - I see them all the time - I

travel between the studios oen the

planes - people say they've been

meaning to do it but never get

around to do iting. You need to get

on the phone and do now. Time will

go by and you'll think "I never got

that portrait." Kids move out that portrait." Kids move out and

home and you never got them back

again to do the photo! Ladies

willsy "I've been meaning to do

that for a long time." And now

they're older - any time is a good

time to do it - but don't hesitate.

It is a moment in time you won't be

able to capture again. Even babies

- you don't have to wait till

they're one or two. I've

photographed babies three or four

months. They look beautiful. Almost

from birth. I think it's a lovely

idea to get a lovely photo of mum

for Mother's Day. Absolutely. So what's the special offer?

That is terrific. For that, that's

the booking fee, which entitles

them for their spot on the day. And

the photographer, the make-up

artist, the whole session, and all

of their photographs on top of that. Exactly right. Excellent.

Talking at the start of the show

about the Olympic swimmer Nick

D'Arcy and his ledged stoush.

Should he or should he not be

allowed on the Olympic team if he's

ended up found guilty of this

misdemeaner? I said he's going to

suffer enough, he should pee

allowed to swim. But we've got lots

of email. I think I'm prepared to

give him a go. He's young, he

perhaps, allegedly, made a silly

mistake. Lynn from Echuca: "Dump

him." Aleisha: "If he's found

guilty, dump him." Sylvia from

Sydney: "ian I feel very strongly

about this. He should be thrown off

the team if he's found guilty."

Most of the emails are going that

way, which surprises me. Chris from

Liverpool: "The young bloke should

definitely be allowed to represent

his country in Beijing. But perhaps

as a boxer." Boom-boom. Bob: "A

very sad time for Australia. What a

contradiction. We're thinking of

expelling an Olympic competitor for

an alleged brawl, yet holding the

Olympic in a country that murders

its own people for demonstrating.

How sad has Australia become when

murdser accepted bought brawl is

not?" Yes, there you go. That's his

opinion, of course. Just this one.

Actually, I can't even say who this

is from. Um... it's from a woman.

And she says "My business partner has arrived from New York and we

have the television on this morning

and she's asked 'Who's Kim's

presenting partner and is he

married?' Please do not read out my

name or company name on air."

You're safe with us. He is married.

Happily. New York's a beautiful

place, too. I spent two years of my

life in New York! I was brought up

there. It's my favourite place there. It's my favourite place in

the world apart from Australia, of

course. We'll have a chat about

that later on. The latest news

headlines shortly. After the break,

Dhav Naidu will explain the meaning

of uber-prim. CRASH! HORN BLARES

between what kids want and what's good for them. New Berri Healthy Balance does both. (Children giggle) (Gasps) No! Owww! Kids!

This program is captioned live.

You're filthy.

we're looking at the latest trends

for fashion in winter. Dhav has

made up the wordupe uber-prim.

Isn't he looking stylish? Ted Baker.

He's a good one too. I'm not going

to do that, Dhav! But trends always

come and go. But it so happens that

trends actually are making very

quick cycles. Some are not leaving

the fashion stable. So sometimes

you have to look at your wardrobe

and see what you should get for the

new season. That's very confusing,

though. You know I know nothing about fashion and that just

confuses me. I always say fashion

is what you buy, style is what you

have. Ohhh. You need to know what

looks good on you, and if you need

something, go out and buy. You

don't have to be a slave to fashion.

Not like the old schoolmisterous -

softer, but still sexyf A bit

naughty. Yes. Let's look at the

first thing. Jemma is wearing a

coat by Matt Cortes. It's still the

whole man-ish style, inspiration

from the man's tailoring. When

Jemma opens the jacket, she also

has a vest. Vests are very big for

the season. Vests? That's a good

tip. She's wearing a Camilla and

Mark vest. That's a great colour.

You'll see a lot of black this

season. It's always hand ay to

throw -- handy to throw in a bright

colour. Black is always in! It is.

And turtlenics, I love them. And turtlenics, I love them. She's

wearing a Kate Sillivister

turtlenic. Inthe cute part is it

comes with gloves. It's all one

piece. Almost '60s style. That's

right! Yeah, yeah, as I, yeah! It

is. She's wearing very nice

tailored pants from Hugo Boss.

Tailored pants are...? They're

something you have to invest. If

you want to buy, please go and

invest on tailored pants, or

anything tailored. Next, we'll anything tailored. Next, we'll look

at Jade. Who has that whole coat

thing happening. That's cute.

That's, again, a '60s look. Once

again. Fashion is cyclical. So it

comes back. Now, this season,

you're getting inspiration from a

lot of different eras. So that coat

is quite interesting. From Nylon

Flock. If Jade would be so kind to

undo her jacket. And fabulous bag,

can I point out. Wow! A bit of

pizazz. The whole tunic dress, once again an inspiration from the '60s,

from Madam A. Paris, which is exclusive to Myer. If

exclusive to Myer. If you want to

wear a black, shiv dress ... That

looks fantastic. Desoo Doesn't it! Keep everything else neutral. That

bag is fantastic. Just keep

everything neutral so you can everything neutral so you can have

the statement pieces. You don't

have to wear flouts and things to

make an entrance. We don't like

that, do we? No, we don't. In terms

of handbags, that was a big handbag.

Statement bags, as I call them.

We'll look at what Sophie is

wearing. What I've done is that

I've melded that whole soft, pretty

look, but a bit with a hard edge.

So she's wearing a Camilla and Mark

skirt, which has actually got dual

lining inside, so it gives a

ballerina sort of look. Very cute.

She's wearing a TL Wood pussybow blouse. So it's got a blouse. So it's got a pussybow with

that, see, on the neck? That's a

pussybow? OK. The thingsio learn!

Yes, of course! Then I've put,

again, a leather jacket from

Madachevski. I know you were going

to say you love him. I was going to

say I was obsessed. The whole look

is hard and soft. Once again, carrying this

carrying this great Anna Hindmarsh

bag, which is the colour itself.

Absolutely sensational.? If you

also want to wear tights, you don't

have to wear black tights. You can

actually wear great-coloured tights

or coloured tights. What is the

issue? I mean, yes or no? If you're

wear ogmake tights and you've got

peak-toe shoes, is that OK? That's

a no. (Laughs) I know a lot of

fashion shows, people show that and

it's great on the catwalk. It's it's great on the catwalk. It's got

to be very slippery for you to walk

in, that's what I say. What do you

do? If you've got a peak toe, do

you cut your toe out? Not

necessarily. If you do, make sure

the shoe is a statement shoe, and

then your tights are really black.

So that way, there's a contrast.

Make it obvious. Don't try to make

it like neutral and then it's quite

not fun. So dark black is OK! Yes.

OK, good. Next, we have the chunky

layering. Poor Ashley is wearing,

like, four pieces. Instead of denim,

I always tell people "Store your

denim for the season." Everybody

wears denim, so store your denims

for winter. What I've got to do -

Even my jeans? What will I wear?!

Jeans are something we all have in

our wardrobe. If yout want to

our wardrobe. If yout want to make

an investment piece, buy tailored
