That's exactly what we need. I'd

like to see that in the boardroom.

That would keep the wheels of

industry grinding along wouldn't

it? Great suggestion. What's on 9

agenda in the sporting world

agenda in the sporting world today Mr Beretta?

Coming up, Fremantle's plan to ruffle Collingwood's feathers. North Queensland hit hard at the judiciary and Elton possibly laid flat by injury. Plus, after sport, Grant has today's weather.

That looks nice and gentle. That's

story book land in fantasy land.

No-one gets wet or turned up side

down. That's lovely and gentle. That's your speed isn't it

Absolutely. Time for sport now here

on Sunrise and Beretts the Dockers fighting fit. Collingwood can expect a tougher clash than usual against Fremantle on Sunday if Des Headland's training is anything to go by. Boxing has become an integral part of the club's fitness sessions and Headland is showing plenty of potential.

Australian boxer Danny Green has been watching over the team's sessions. I think boxing is valuable to the fitness and endurance side of things and also it doesn't hurt, if the boys are in a bit of a scrum scrap, it doesn't hurt to know it doesn't hurt to know how to throw a few. So it's good.

A setback for Port Adelaide ahead of its match against the Kangaroos. Adam Kingsley has a calf injury and it's doubtful he'll play.

The NRL judiciary has suspended North Queensland forward Michael Luck

for four matches for a high tackle in last Saturday's game against the Roosters. The judiciary was more lenient with Newcastle front-rower Craig Smith. Smith's defence team argued

the player drove the back of Canberra second-rower Kris Kahler into the ground and not his head. Queensland Reds fly-half Elton Flatley admits his future in rugby remains uncertain after he was ruled out of tomorrow night's match

against the NSW Waratahs. Flatley has suffered seven Flatley has suffered seven concussions in the past four seasons and is still unable to train. He'll see a specialist in Melbourne today. But Ben Tune is confident of overcoming a shoulder injury. I said earlier on in the week I was 50-50. I'd like to think I'm sorta 75% chance of playing now. Waratahs coach Ewen McKenzie has named an unchanged side. And Australian super-middleweight boxer Danny Green has split with coach Jeff Fenech. Green says Fenech's commitment

to coach heavyweight brawler Mike Tyson caused the split. The Sydney-based Western Australian will now be coached by Ismael Salas. The Cuban has guided boxers to victory in 45 world title bouts.

The Australian F1 Grand Prix will go head-to-head with round one will go head-to-head with round one of the AFL next year. The GP will now be held from 30 March to 2 April, instead of its earlier March date to accomodate the Commonwealth Games. So, the GP now just four days after the Games closing ceremony and the AFL. Melbourne will be packed.

It will be a huge time. You won't

have down time, you'll be happy.

Just go from one to the other.

Spend your time down there easy.

He's been watching too many sports

cars in America. He's racing today.

Grant is spending his Thursday on Hollywood Boulevard. Good morning.

You bet we are. I tell you what it

is a great place. It is a

recreation of the famous Hollywood

real Hollywood boulevard. We'll

look at the bad boy of scary rides,

people to the test on that and some

have failed. We'll take our cameras

on board for your personal glimpse

of one of the scariest rides in the

take a look at the weather around Australia. A band of mid to high level cloud is bringing showers to parts of WA, while a low is continuing to produce showers on the southern Queensland coast and it will be mostly fine over New South Wales thanks to some warm, dry, northerly winds. Around Australia today:

Looking ahead:

I'm Grant Denyer, lifestyles of the

rich and famous will continue in a

few minutes time. See you then. Later this morning, we're going to answer a stack of your questions about Disneyland - where to stay, what to eat, how to beat the queues. We'll have the inside knowledge. But next, inside Wall Street.

The Dumb bow ride in Fantasy land

with all the characters in Disneyland. Finance time now on Sunrise. Let's cross to Wall Street, where CNN's Susan Lisovicz is standing by with the latest. Good morning, Susan. How are the US markets doing today?

I'm happy to report we had a

terrific day here on Wall Street.

The dow posted triple digit gains

and the Nasdaq rose 1.5%. 27 of the

dow, 30 stocks were higher and

advancers declinersoverall by

more than three to one at the big

board. The rally coming despite a

rise at the price of oil and crude

settled at over $50 a barrel and

General Motors soared 18%. A really

big aday for GM. Why was GM up

because it's had a troubled couple

of weeks? You're exactly right.

Most of the news that's been coming

out of GM has been terrible and

losing market share to oi iota and

a recall and slumping oil sales

announced earlier this week and

today it drove the stock higher

because billionaire Kirk wants a

bigger piece and the corporation

says it wants to double its stake

and offering $31 per share and GM

closed Tuesday at under $28 a share

and word of Cokorian's interest

sent it soaring and it was a great

relief for a lot of GM's share

holders today. The world's biggest

media company reported its earnings

today, how did they do? That's

enough factor that really helped

control the direction of the market

today. Shares of Time Warner gained

3.6% and solid earnings like that

gave investors confidence and it is

the world's largest media company

and its profits came in slightly

higher than a year ago and strip

out one time gains and it stripped

the street by a penny and growth of

its publishing business helped the

results and it is the parent

company of CNN and America on line

and HPN and turner broadcasting. On

the other side of the scale shares

slumping for the biggest video

maker in the US. What's going on at

Electronic Arts? News on Electronic

Arts. It wasn't good news. Its

shares fell more than 7% and the

company makes well-known video

games but its profits plunged more

than 90% to $8 million mainly

because of weak sales of its

popular video games and it is also

forecasting an unexpected loss for

the current quarter. A tough day

for Electronic Arts but overall a

very good day for the balls. Back

to you. We'll catch you next time.

Let's check the rest of the markets now. You

We had dinner last night which was

lots of fun and met our 100 viewers

and a lovely email from Carolyn

saying she joined us and had a

great time and thanks for the cast

and crew for making it a great

holiday. I'm 50 and celebrating at

Disneyland and it is a happy place

to spread the love. It was fun and

we enjoyed it. Thanks for everyone

that came along. From all over the

country. Even Bunbury. There's

always someone from Bunbury. Jean

was from Bunbury. I have something

for you boys to think about, you

know the fashion when you do a

business deal, you might have a

round of golf or maybe go for

drinks to finish. Hang out with the

blokes. No longer, you boys are

following in the path of us girls.

Apparently in America there's a new

trend for blokes to go to places

like day spas and take off your

suit, slip into a fluffy robe and

go off and have a massage and you

have a massage and lip lemon grass

tea and honey and go for a

refreshing dinner. Do business at a

day spa? Yeah. You have a pedi cure

and herbal tea and a fluffy robe

rather than go to the golf club.

You might end up with a different

opinion of the bloke who took you

to the day spa that day. I think it

is a tactic women have known about

for years. Do you reckon that is

the new trend of bonding with your

business colleagues, go to the day

spa and have a coffee and a couple

of herbal tease and scones and get

your toes done. You boys look after

yourselves nowadays. A mask maybe.

A back, crack and sack wax. That's

pushing it. Don't they do that sort

of stuff? That's what they do.

Fantastic. Let us know. It won't be

happening in my business, that's for sure. Coming up, why it will soon be much harder to know whether our seafood is imported. And Julie Andrews will be with us on centre stage. But next, the latest news and weather. You're watching Sunrise right across Australia. VOICEOVER: Want to simplify your finances? With a personal loan from GE Money, you can roll your debts into one. And loans can be approved in as little as an hour.

The big ones and the little ones, the guardians and the comedians, the pure breeds and the mutts. sniffing and fetching. And if there were an international holiday for dogs, we'd be for that too. VOICEOVER: Not too handy around the house?

You're very slow. I am. It's yum.

It is beautiful down here. This is

the pier. Paradise Pier and it is

old fashioned and the timber board

walks and you can hear the music

and it is gorgeous. It is very nice.

We'll hand you back to Rosanna with

the 6:30 news. Suckers is all I can say. Good morning, everyone. The brothers of Australian hostage The brothers of Australian hostage Douglas Wood have made a direct appeal to his captors. Malcolm and Vernon Wood have appeared on al-Jazeera television, saying their brother has a serious heart condition and could die without constant medical care. We ask those holding Douglas to take this into account. We firmly believe that Douglas's captivity will make no difference to the policy of the Australian Government.

The brothers say if the kidnappers free the 63-year-old, they'll ask him to close down his company and leave Iraq. And the Foreign Minister says the Government remains determined to have Douglas Wood released. After a Washington meeting with the US Secretary of State, Alexander Downer said Australia is receiving excellent co-operation from other countries, but he says it's still a difficult situation. We haven't tracked down where Douglas Wood is and we'll continue to work on that. We'll be fairly cautious, though, from now on in giving a running commentary on how the operation is going. He also says the appeal by Douglas Wood's family is helpful. A man will appear in court this morning charged over two arson attacks in Sydney.

In the most dramatic, the altar of the city's main Catholic cathedral was set alight. In the holiest of places, the most ungodly of attacks. Oh, God. At Sydney's St Mary's Cathedral the altar burns. A man risks his own life to fight the flames. Moments later, others rush in putting out the fire,

but the damage is already done. no structural damage. At the moment there's been no structural damage. There appears to have been, um, the shroud around the altar and the carpet appears to have been damaged around the altar.

One good Samaritan was taken to hospital with smoke inhalation. Police interviewed onlookers... Alrighty, so thank you very much for your time. ..before arresting and charging a 35-year-old Nepalese man. He's also charged over an earlier attack on a nearby travel agency. He's appearing in court this morning. Police are investigating a fire which caused $1 million damage to a factory south-west of Melbourne. Nufarm Chemicals at Laverton North was well alight when emergency crews arrived after 10:00 last night. It took firefighters more than It took firefighters more than an hour to control the blaze. 15 people were evacuated, but there were no injuries. Peter Costello continues to add to the speculation over the Liberal Party leadership. The Treasurer has increased the pressure on the Prime Minister, by saying the leadership tensions have not been finally dealt with but they will be. He also blames John Howard for the tensions in an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald. The Treasurer says the party's future depends on a smooth transition of power. A military judge has rejected A military judge has rejected the guilty plea entered by US soldier Lynndie England over the Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal. The judge declared a mistrial after England's former supervisor and boyfriend testified. He claimed the 22-year-old didn't know her actions were wrong. It contradicts England's guilty plea earlier this week.

The judge said the two statements couldn't be reconciled and dismissed the jury. It's been a night of old meeting new at Australian Fashion Week. This collection by young designer Kit Willow is touted as old world glamour. The designer says the clothes provide a modern touch for day or night and if this runway show is anything to go by,

knee-high boots are back in.

The label is a hit with overseas celebrities like Cameron Diaz and Britney Spears. To sports news now with Mark Beretta and St Kilda isn't happy. Saints coach Grant Thomas has hit out at the AFL Tribunal. He says he's confused and frustrated by the new system. Fraser Gehrig's one-match ban has triggered Grant Thomas's latest outburst. He says Gehrig's striking charge on Collingwood's Jason Cloke wasn't even worth reporting let alone assessed as low and he wants greater clarity on how charges are graded. There's going to be anomalies, such as this, but I don't know any one that would look at an incident like the weekend and think that it was really like what the Tribunal was set up for. The Saints have a more than able replacement for Gehrig against Geelong. head of Saturday's match against Geelong. Club captain Nick Riewoldt returns

after breaking his collarbone against Brisbane in round one. To Rugby League and the NRL judiciary has cleared Newcastle's Craig Smith

of a head-slamming charge. His defence team argued the front-rower drove the back of Canberra's Kris Kahler into the ground and not his head. North Queensland second-rower Michael Luck was suspended for four weeks for a high tackle. But the club has received a boost, signing star full-back Matt Bowen for another three years. And at Penrith half-back Preston Campbell

has re-signed with the Panthers until the end of the 2006 season. He rejected a deal to be free to sign with the Gold Coast franchise if it wins a licence for the 2007 competition. To other sports news now. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has signed a new five-year deal with the English champions.

Can you believe all the time after

it happened they're weaveing in and

out of court without facing the

music. Hopefully they'll come down

hard on them. Jacques Rogge told us

a couple of weeks ago that he

wasn't going to let them off

because the Greeks have. They'll

start blaming their mother.

That'sen excuse that's been used

before. One of the highlights from

yesterday was Grant taking on

Disneyland's ultimate ride. Have

you recovered? Only just T is like

the car commercial where the

bloke's smile is pinned back

permanently. The coaster is like

that. Isn't it great, as Mel will

atest to later on, won't you? Very

fast. Last night at the Sunrise

guests' dinner. I met a lady who was

64 and never been on a roller

coaster until yesterday and that

was her first. The entire Sunrise

crew jumped on yesterday for a ride

and we jumped on board what we call

the perfect coaster as you'll see.

This is Megan, she's from Australia,

Geelong. What are we in for? It

goes up and down and up side down

on Micky's face. Really? Yeah and

it goes 5, 4, 32, 1 and then you go

speeding. Apparently it uses mag

nets to propel this from 0 to

100km/h in literally a couple of

seconds. It is amazing technology

and one of the original roller

coasters and everything a roller coaster should be. Yeah!

We're going up hill now and you

don't hear the tick, tick, tick,

tick, because it uses mag nets but

they use speakers apparently to replicate the traditional sound.

The ride goes for three minutes and the view is amazing.

I just got the first loop of the park.

Your bum comes off the seat.

That was awesome. It's just so good

and I tell you what, I was actually

going for the record of the most

continuous rides on the roller

coaster and aim for 70 but after

doing it once, I didn't think the

body would hold up for that many.

It is quite a thrill isn't it? It

sure is. Let's look at the weather. There'll be above average temperatures in southern and central New South Wales There'll be above average temperatures in southern and central New South Wales due to some dry northerly winds. A partly cloudy day across Sydney. A cold front will produce showers over much of Victoria today. Some isolated showers for Melbourne and surrounding areas. A rainy day in Tasmania. Some isolated showers are expected along the South Australian coast. A fine and hot day across the Northern Territory. A mostly fine day across Western Australia.

Not everybody is liked in Hollywood,

even though we're spending

Hollywood here toond I'd like to

introduce you to one of the meanest

in Hollywood, Cruella from 101

Dalmations. You've heard of me have

you? Yes. The children are

frightened of you and what's your

fast innations with puppies. I love

the white ones and the white ones

with black spots and they're called

Dalmations and they make fabulous

coats. You're talking to a dog

lover. You like puppies do you.

What do you think of the celebration. The celebration is all

right, I suppose it is OK but when

are we going to celebrate me. Is

this yours? It is a lovely weather

wagon. You can see what my

inspiration was. Who wants to

cuddle Cruella? Are you sure.

Go for your life. Aren't we doing

that on your behalf. Time now for the Thought of the Day and it was emailed in by Kurt. "Where the Lord closes a door, somewhere he opens a window".

That was before he blew the whistle

in the cemetery to give them up

when they were hiding behind the

head stones. That was Ralph's

brother from the sound of music.

Did we mention that Julie Andrews

is coming up later in the show? The

connections you draw. Thank you

Kurt. The hills are alive. So much

more for you this morning. Julie

Andrews, lucky. I wonder if she has

any idea what she's in for and

we're paying a set visit to

Desperate House wives and must see TV. But next, find out how Mark Beretta has been spending his nights.

He takes us to the world famous home of sports broadcasting, ESPN.

Geez mate, your bin's looking full. It's all my recycling. That's great mate, but you can't put that in there, or that. Why not? Causes problems at the recycling plant. This contaminates the recycling. And this could break down the machin s. Just stick to the stuff that can go in your recycling bin. So how do I know what I can and can't put in? Just get on the web, look at your recycling calendar or check out the sticker under your bin lid. Recycling, let's sort it out for our future.

Sunrise does Disneyland, brought to

you by Qantas, Qantas Holidays, Disneyland, Jetset and Travelworld. With California Screamin' hovering in the background, silently calling my name, it's good to know there are other ways at Disneyland to get your heart rate up without fear. Yes, it can all happen at the ESPN Zone. It's the home of the famous TV sports broadcasting network and the scent of blood, sweat and ribs forced our sports guru, Mark Beretta, to check it out.

You thought Disneyland was just for

kids. Imagine a sport lover's paradise.

One giant screen, 12 feet from

around the world and the sporting

results up the side and trivia

across the top and you don't have

to get out of your chair to eat.

Hello Mandy. How's it going? Good

thanks. Good to see you. Cheers!

That was good. Now that's done I

have to go upstairs and get into it. See new a second. Yeah!

You're all right Marcus, keep your

head up, follow through. You'll be all right at this game.

7Th, that's a good finish.

Come on!

Oh no, I broke the line. Look at

that cornering Grant. Ouch. That

was way too hard. This is better. Wow,

have you seen Beretts's tips this

week. He got a perfect round, all

three codes and won everything.

That's skilful and that's amazing.

He's winning the commission by 25,

who would've thought. I'm in awe,

he has such skills and talent. A

tip maybe? Geelong to beat St Kilda, Mandy.

I obviously was dreaming was I?

That looked cool. It is the best

place. We've been there every night

and it should be named boys town

because it is fantastic. Hey. And

girl's town. How's your head? Much

better thanks. The leather chairs

down the front. There's guys who

get there in the afternoon and they

plant there for the afternoon and

order ribs and fries and beers and

they're in heaven. How do you know?

I did my research. I bet they don't

go to the day spa for business

meetings. That's our day spa. I

want to talk about other sport.

Enough of day spas. Lions loyalty,

has it prevailed twice in a week?

It has been a great week for them.

They have signed Jonathon Brown and

Leigh Matthews has extended his

contract for two years and that

will make him the first 10-year

coach at the Lions and they have

never finished lower than fifth

place at the Lions. And they'll

have to bring through the young

kids and they have the stability at kids and they have the stability at

the top level and the experience of

Leigh Matthews and that's a big

plus for them this week. Give us an

update on Anthony Mundine. He's

been talking to his old club? That exploded late yesterday afternoon.

I'll read the statement that the

Dragons put out "Mundine's manager

advised dragon's CEO that team

Mundine wasn't interested in

discussing rugby league with the

Dragons and that's it". No reasons

given. They're at logger heads and

no-one's budging. The hot talk is

he may end up at the Roosters.

That's the next port of call for

Anthony Mundine's manager. It is

not looking good. There was early

good feeling between the Dragons

and Anthony and that disintegrated

as of yesterday. Checking the markets now. Wall Street traded in positive territory. Over in Europe, most indices also finished ahead. Briefly now to business news. Coca Cola Amatil has issued a profit warning for the first half. Sales in Australia have stagnated and its Hong Kong division is still doing poorly. Shares in the under-performing Mayne group have had their best day in 15 years after the company said it's considering a proposal to split its pharmaceutical and health care businesses into two separate listed companies. And Southcorp shareholders have been given an extra two weeks

to consider Fosters' takeover bid. They'll now have until 26 May the $4.26 a share offer. to decide if they'll accept the $4.26 a share offer.

You obviously weren't surprised

about the interest rates? No, the

market or the economy is a market or the economy is a bit flat

at the moment and it probably

would've been premature. Who rang

and told you now we're over here? I

can't reveal my sources but Ian

thank you for that. I'll give you a

wave on the way into work when I'm

back. I reckon you have the Reserve

Bank as your home page when you log

on. Let's do a day

on. Let's do a day spa. Ian

McPharlin may be a day spa bloke.

Ian drop us an email and let us

know. You bring the reds are from

the similar and I'll bring the

over a couple of drinks. They put

on a robe and have a massage.

What's the world coming to is what I say.

Ahead this morning, our live Ahead this morning, our live interview with Julie Andrews. The hills are alive with excitement. But next, the latest from the newsroom. You're waking up with friends here on Sunrise.

Maria, these walls were not meant

to shut problems out. You have to

go and live the life you were meant

to do. That was the mother superior

to Maria. That was one of the

classic lines and I tried to live

my life by that. Do you think Julie

has been warned about you? Maybe

she's heard about me. Let's see.

Let's check the newspapers from around the country.

And "Family Plea" is the headline on the front page of the Adelaide Advertiser. It tells how the family of kidnapped Australian Douglas Wood have made a direct plea for his life on Arab television. The Australian has also chosen to feature the hostage crisis on its front page, wit h the headline "Family begs for sick captive". And The Courier Mail reports that an investigation into a senior psychiatrist failed to find he'd been found guilty

of harmful sexual relations with patients. Keith Muir was prosecuted in the United States for offences relating to two patients.

The other big news of the day is

Shane Warne is going bald. What?

There's nothing wrong with that.

One of his English county

team-mates has dobbed him in and blurted it out

blurted it out saying there's a bit

of a bald patch. Warney. Like that?

I think it is a good look. You have

to age gracefully. Maybe he hasn't

been to enough day spas. Do you

reckon he's the sort of bloke that

would do the comb over? Kevin

Bartlett and grow it long-on one

side. They used to grow the grass

long-on one side in Melbourne for

Kevin Bartlett. A lot of the

sporties are doing the advanced

hair trick. This could be a big

marketing opportunity. Or the buzz

cut like you've gone. I like the

buzz cut. Is that giving in? Is it

going - No, it is just accepting

life. Is it? It is moving on and

having confidence in your inner self

and getting in touch with the ying

and yang of life and being able to

mould both of them together. That's

how I've ration liesd it. You right

it in lipstick on the mirror and

repeat it every morning. What

should he do? What about a rug,

does that look good on guys? If does that look good on guys? If it

works and makes them feel confident

go for it. Don't you laugh behind

their back? I'm not a rug fan. You

don't see many good ones really, do

you? If you see one you can pick it,

it is over. What about when you

start to grey, you start the blonde

one and bits of grey and it is more

trouble than it is worth. Lets us

know, advice for Warney. A buzz cut,

combover - I reckon he should go

the Jason Gillespie mullet. Not a fan of the mullet. In this half-hour, we'll be joined here at Disneyland by none other than Julie Andrews. Can you believe it? And we'll know why it could soon be impossible to know whether our seafood is imported. First, though, here's Rosanna with our 7am news.

Good morning. The brothers of Australian hostage Douglas Wood

have appeared on Arabic television pleading for his captors to free him. They say the 63-year-old is a sick man without constant medical care. and could die without constant medical care. In cafes, restaurants and homes across Iraq locals have watched the impassioned appeal on al-Jazeera television. The family's hope is that the right people were listening. We, Douglas's family, ask his captors to return him to us, unharmed. He is not a well man, with several medical problems needing constant care. From a studio in Canberra Malcolm and Vernon Wood said Douglas has a serious heart condition and in his current stressed environment, without medication,

his health could fail altogether. We ask those holding Douglas to take this into account, we firmly believe that Douglas' captivity will make no difference to the policy of the Australian Government. And in return for their brother's freedom, this promise, Should he be released, we will ask Douglas to close down his company and leave Iraq.

He loves good company and cherishes his family. His family and friends want to enjoy his company again.

The Foreign Minister says the appeal by Douglas Wood's family is helpful. Alexander Downer is in Washington

for talks with the US Secretary of State. He's thanked America for its help in trying to release the 63-year-old hostage and says the Government remains determined to see the engineer set free. He does have a family and the family really cares about him and they miss him and they want him back.

So, I think its been good that the family has made this appeal. Mr Downer says the response group in Iraq

has received excellent co-operation from foreign teams on the ground. is claiming responsibility An Iraqi militant group is claiming responsibility for an attack which has killed at least 60. A suicide bomber struck at a police recruitment centre in Irbil, in the Kurdish north.

The Army of Ansar al-Sunna has vowed to mount more violence against Kurds, accusing them of collaborating with occupying forces. It's the bloodiest single attack in the region since the war. A 35-year-old Nepalese man will appear in court this morning, charged over an arson attack on Sydney's main Catholic cathedral. The altar at Sydney's St Mary's was set alight last night. Paramedics treated one person for smoke inhalation, after passers-by helped put out the blaze. At the moment there's been no structural damage. There appears to have been, um,

the shroud around the altar and the carpet appears to have been damaged around the altar. The man is also charged over a fire at a nearby travel agency. Treasurer Peter Costello has increased the pressure on John Howard using his latest media interview to suggest he's ready to challenge the Prime Minister. The Treasurer says the leadership tensions have not been finally dealt with, but they will be. And he insists the party's future depends on a smooth transition of power. In the interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, he blames Mr Howard for the tensions. Another round of tax cuts is on the cards for high income earners in next Tuesday's Federal Budget. Leaks in Budget plans show the relief is likely to be in addition to last year's rise of tax thresholds. These cuts could take several forms, including more thres hold movement and cuts to the marginal rates. To finance now - Wall Street traded in positive territory. Over in Europe, most indices also finished ahead. In Japan, the markets remained closed for a public holiday.

There was a touch of dance fever in the air last night, as Australian Fashion Week continued.

Willow's much-anticipated show began with a disco theme. But once the mirror ball had finished turning, the models showcased a collection rich in old-world glamour. The designer says women who wear these clothes can step straight out of the boardroom and onto the social scene.

Checking sports news now with Mark Beretta, and two of the West Coast Eagles stars are under fire. Collingwood can expect a tougher clash than usual against Fremantle on Sunday if Des Headland's training is anything to go by. Boxing has become an integral part of the club's fitness regime and Headland is showing plenty of potential. Australian boxer Danny Green has been watching over the team's sessions. A setback for Port Adelaide ahead of its match against the Kangaroos. Adam Kingsley has a calf injury and it's doubtful he'll play.

The NRL Judiciary has suspended The NRL Judiciary has suspended forward Michael Luck for four matches for a high tackle in last Saturday's game against the Roosters. The Judiciary was more lenient with Newcastle front-rower Craig Smith. Smith's defence team argued the player drove the back of Canberra second rower Kris Kahler into the ground, and not his head. Queensland Reds fly-half Elton Flatley admits his future in Rugby remains uncertain after he was ruled out of tomorrow night's match against the New South Wales Waratahs.

Flatley has suffered seven concussions

in the past four seasons and is still unable to train. He'll see a specialist in Melbourne today. But Ben Tune is confident of overcoming a shoulder injury. And AC Milan is through to the final of the Champions League despite losing to PSV Eindhoven 3-1 in the second leg of their semifinal.

The Italian giants are through on the away-goals rule and will play Liverpool in the final.

And there we go. Doesn't get much

bigger than that. Except for this,

guess who's coming up? Julie Andrews isn't far away. Stick with us. Julie Andrews isn't far away. But right now, Grant has Thursday's weather.

We're in the Hollywood section of the park

the park and there's only one thing

hotter than the Oscars and that's

the hot dogs. As this sign says,

they're the award Wieners and have

taken the title of the best one in

a supporting role. It is Goofy and

his son, Max, who's now 12 and

almost old enough to go on the

Tower of Terror. Are Tower of Terror. Are you looking

forward to it? How do you feel

about your son taking the leap of

faith and riding the scariest ride

there is. We'll do that later as we

take a look at the weather. A band of mid to high level cloud is bringing showers to parts of WA, while a low is continuing to produce showers on the southern Queensland coast and it will be mostly fine over New South Wales thanks to some warm, dry, northerly winds. Around Australia today:

While these hot dogs look normal,

one thing you don't miss out on in

America is the food. They don't

mind giving you plenty of it and it

is wreaking havoc with my racing

training and the middle waste. We

can relate to that you're not alone. Here in America, many still think we Aussies throw a shrimp on the barbie every weekend. But back at home, how do we know whether those prawns are actually from Australia?

Proposed new guidelines for food labelling mean we won't be told whether our seafood is imported. Russ Neal is from the Australian Seafood Industry Council. What are the current rules about labelling seafood?

Good morning. Currently it really

varies from state to state varies from state to state but in

summary, there's a requirement for

consumers to be able to tell, to

be told, to be shown, whether or

not their seafood that they're

purchasing is harvested from

Australia or has been imported but

what's really needed is a national

enforcable code to show the

country of origin of the seafood so

that consumers are properly

informed and can make the choice

that they really want to make. If

we're talking about scrapping those

and having new guidelines with no

labelling at all. What do you think

that will do to the industry? What

we have is a draft proposal or a

draft national code and it has been

under consultation for 12 months

and very recently there's been a

shift in the draft which would mean

effectively that unpackageed

seafood and that's a lot of the

seafood that we can purchase,

unpackaged seafood would not have

to have any origins shown on it or

wouldn't have to show whether it is

Australian or imported and that's

not good enough and needs to be

tightened up. You can't have a

regulation that simply says, "If

you consumer asks about it we hope

to be able to tell them". What will

it do to the industry if the

guidelines go through and what will

it mean for us as consumers? There

are literally hundreds of

commercial species of our seafood

on the market, the various types of

fish and rock lob ter and prawns

and Abalonie and el r the

consumers need to be able to tell

of the type and grade of the

seafood and therefore you need the

origin labelling as part of that

decision-making process. Do we

import much seafood, give us an

idea? In a $3 billion seafood

market in Australia, by value we

have imports running at $1 billion a

year. Wow, a third of our seafood

is imported? By value, it's a

complicated situation, by volume of

all the Australian seafood, we

produce 75% of that is consumed

here at home. What we have is a

situation where the market place is

operating quite effectively,

Australia's seafood industry is

unsubsidised and unprotected and

we're happy to compete but it means

that consumers must have the right

to know the source of their product.

Absolutely Russ, we preerbgt your

time and see what comes of the

proposal and thank you for joining

us. Speaking of food - later this hour, we'll tell you why being overweight can actually be good for you.

But next, all my dreams are about to come true. We'll be joined live by legend of the screen, Julie Andrews.

Sunrise does Disneyland, brought to

you by Qantas, the spirit of

Australia and Qantas Holidays. I'm going to speak for my co-host here now. It's the first time in a long time that he's lost for words. Regular viewers would know David Koch's dream interview is Julie Andrews.

And the showbiz legend herself joins us here this morning. Good morning.

Pardon by co-host kneeling at your

feet. If I was knowing you were

going to do that I would've brought

you some knee pads. He's so excited

and we all are. Can you believe the

impact of your movies, Mary

impact of your movies, Mary Poppins

and the The Sound of Music, they

were done soo long ago and so many

generations? I'm a fortunate lady.

I'm lucky enough to have Boon able

to play the characters. Think how

blessed I feel. What was the magic

in them that have made them last so

long? They were timeless and

wonderful scripts and scenery and

they had the magic of Mary Poppins

from Walt Disney and timeless

scenes and beautiful music and put

all those things together and

that's what makes them last. Was

The Sound of Music your favourite?

Would you like it to be Kochie? I

would. Yes of course it is way up

there but you like them all for a

different reason. You like one for

the script and one for the people

you work with. One for the location,

one for just character, you love

them all. I loved Mary Ponnins but

I'm not game to... Today is a

really big day isn't it. The start

of the 50th birthday celebrations and dick

and dick VanDyck might be coming

tonight. Will you be around? Yes

we'll be there and when you hear us

yell out with Dick come over. It is

a national treasure Disneyland and

I'm proud to be their honorary

ambassador and we're asking

everyone to come and join the

celebration. As well as your movies

and Disneyland. Everyone that comes

here, you suddenly feel like a

child again? I think you do and it

taps into the wonder wonderful'll

area of fantasy that hopefully we

never lose. It shows kids don't

change doesn't it? The thing about

all the resorts and parks that

Disney has, he was such a visionary

and he set such a standard that -

though he's unfortunately been gone

a white, the standard has been

improveing and improveing and it is

the clonest place you can come to

and you know you'll get great food

and wonderful service. It is a

marvellous place. The staff are

incredible. They are. What about td

pressure on you as an actress, with

all the iconic movies and you've

just done the princess diaries? Has

that been released in Australia?

Yes it is has. I take my daughters

to and everything. What pressure

does it put on you to look at

scripts and stories to for you in

the future? I think for any actress

it is always what can I bring to

this particular subject. What can I

deliver, what - how can I help make

it the best it can possibly be?

That's what you'd like to try and

do. Do you find each one you read,

anything you agree to has to touch

your heart in a certain way? As I

say, in some ways yes. Obviously it

has to resonate in some ways and in

the case of the Princess diaries, I

loved working with the director

Garry marshal. He brought us scat

pretty Woman and Run away Bride and

he's such a lovely human being and

in a way, obviously, I knew he was

going to take wonderful care of me

and it would be fun. Do you find

yourself being tough on directors

seeing you're in a movie family and

you know what the directors should

be like? Having a husband that's

one of the great directors. Each

one of them have their own special

touch and I know the director is

the important one so it is probably

best that I take a back seat as

much as possible and I'm big about

opening my mouth but I try. Does

Blake Edwards ever advise you on

what movies to take? Not on

somebody else's movie but be sure

he does when we're working together.

What's next for you? I'm beginning

to branch out into some other

really interesting things for me.

I'm writing books for children and

I've in the last three years, I've

just begun my own imprint called

the Julie Andrews collection which

I don't think has reached Australia

and I'm hoping it will and I'm

beginning to direct for the theatre

and this is phenomenal for me

because it is bringing all I've

ever known into focus and I'm

finding it very stimulating. Now,

questions I have to ask, favourite

scene out of The Sound of Music

what was your favourite? Oh gosh.

The funniest scene for sure was the

very opening of the show. The

beautiful shot of me walking across

the field just before I turn around,

that was taken - the bulk was shot

by a helicopter and what nobody

knew is that I approached the

helicopter and it approached me and

I did my big spin and the

helicopter went around and back to

the beginning of the field for the

next take because it takes many

takes to get the shot right and

every time it went around me, the

down draft from the jet engines

levelled me into the grass. You did

your circle and went splat. Time

and again I tried to stand my

ground. I got angrier and angrier

and finally I shook my fist at the

pilot and said could you make a

wider circle and I got this great

thumbs up, got the shot. Was the

baroness has bad as she was on

camera? No she was lovely. The kids

were delightful and we meet every

10 years or so. This year we'll be

making the 40th anniversary DVD of

the The Sound of Music and we're

all getting together for it next

month. I know what I'm buying you

for Christmas. Thank you so much

for joining us and have a wonderful

night tonight. I want to visit your

country, I've been invited so many

times. You have to come down. I

will and may I see you then as well.

Always an open invitation. Nice to

meet you. Don't do it again, I hate

anybody that grofls. Bye Melissa.

Za thank you very much. Enjoy

tonight. You have a great day.

We'll have a break and Kochie will

get his breath back and we'll see

you shortly. You're watching

Sunrise from Disneyland.

GIRL: I've found the perfect Mother's Day gift, 30% off bed linen, 30% off floor rugs, 30% off cushions and much more.

Geez mate, your bin's looking full. It's all my recycling. That's great mate, but you can't put that in there, or that. Why not? Causes problems at the recycling plant. This contaminates the recycling. And this could break down the machin s. Just stick to the stuff that can go in your recycling bin. So how do I know what I can and can't put in? Just get on the web, look at your recycling calendar or check out the sticker under your bin lid. Recycling, let's sort it out for our future.

Are you OK on this one? You're not

tricking me though? No, put this

around just in case. Are you sure

it won't jump up and down or do

anything? No, you'll be fine. Are

you nervous? I don't trust you

because sometimes you say it is

easy. All right, I'm hanging on.

Lets go. This is great isn't it?

This is King Triton's carousel and

it is going up and down. Strictly

speaking it is more a merry go

round because a carousel can only

have horses. This is cute and

there's little kids on it and if

anyone under three can manage it, I

have no excuse. We were more

successful in getting you on this

ride than we were? Some of the

others yesterday as well. Take a

look. There's music everywhere

isn't there? I can feel my ribbon

coming out. This looks like my

speed. This is wussy. It looks

gentle. In you go.

I'm going to sleep. That's really

sweet you two. Hold on. Come on boys.

That was a nice area wasn't it?

Very cute. Good for the kiddies. A

shop. We can go shopping. We've got

no time. Come on. You have to buy

something for Ava. You have to go

the Goofy one for your tipping

competition. You better go the princess. I love princesses.

Didn't I look like a dork. I didn't

think I'd look that stupid.

Possibly but we're used to it. But first, here's Rosanna with our 7.30 news. The family of Australian hostage Douglas Wood have begged his captors to set him free.

In a message broadcast on Arabic television Wood's brothers, Malcolm and Vernon, says he has a serious heart condition and could die without proper medical care. We, Douglas' family, ask his captors to return him to us unharmed. He is not a well man, with several medical problems needing constant care. The brothers have described the 63-year-old as a warm and generous man who respects the Iraqi people. A military judge has rejected the guilty plea entered by US soldier Lynndie England over the Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal. The judge declared a mistrial after England's former supervisor and boyfriend testified. He claimed the 22-year-old didn't know her actions were wrong. It contradicts England's guilty plea earlier this week. The judge said the two statements couldn't be reconciled and dismissed the jury.

A man will appear in court this morning, charged over two arson attacks in Sydney. In the most dramatic, the altar of the city's main Catholic cathedral was set alight. In the holiest of places, the most ungodly of attacks. Oh, God. At Sydney's St Mary's Cathedral the altar burns. A man risks his own life to fight the flames. Moments later, others rush in putting out the fire, but the damage is already done. At the moment there's been no structural damage. There appears to have been, um, the shroud around the altar and the carpet appears to have been damaged around the altar. One good Samaritan was taken to hospital with smoke inhalation. Police interviewed onlookers...

Alrighty, so thank you very much for your time. ..before arresting and charging a 35-year-old Nepalese man. He's also charged over an earlier attack on a nearby travel agency. He's appearing in court this morning. Police are investigating a fire which caused $1 million damage to a factory south-west of Melbourne. Nufarm Chemicals at Laverton North was well alight when emergency crews arrived after 10:00 last night. It took firefighters more than an hour to control the blaze. 15 people were evacuated, but there were no injuries. Queensland's Dr Death inquiry has widened to include an investigation into why local checks failed to uncover details of a doctor's chequered past. New Zealand-born psychiatrist Keith Muir was struck off in New York a decade ago for gross malpractice, amid accusations he had sex with vulnerable patients.

But he's been working on the Sunshine Coast for two years. My thought was that the Medical Board has again failed the people of Queensland. Dr Muir has stood down pending the inquiry. The space shuttle Discovery has gone through its paces in a simulated countdown ahead of July's blast-off. Australian-born astronaut Andy Thomas, and six fellow crew members suited up and strapped in for the dress rehearsal at Kennedy Space Centre. NASA is taking no chances for the first shuttle flight since the Columbia disaster more than two years ago. We need to take things that are in an unacceptable risk category and get them down to either an acceptable risk or a point where we understand them enough that we're safe to go flying. Discovery is scheduled to launch on July 13. Checking sports news now with Mark Beretta, and the Saints regain their skipper. St Kilda captain Nick Riewoldt will return to action for the Saints against Geelong on Saturday. It will be his first match since breaking his collarbone against the Brisbane Lions in round one.

Riewoldt comes into the side for suspended forward Fraser Gehrig. Penrith five-eighth Preston Campbell has signed on with the Panthers until the end of the 2006 season. He rejected a three-year deal to be free to sign with the Gold Coast franchise if it gets into the 2007 competition. To soccer, and AC Milan will play Liverpool in the final of the Champions League. The Italians lost the second leg of their semifinal against PSV Eindhoven 3-1.

But Milan goes through on the away goals rule. And in tennis, Australia's Lleyton Hewitt has pulled out of next week's ATP Tour event in Hamburg because of a toe injury. The world No.3 has now set his sights The world No.3 has now set his sights on a comeback at the World Team Cup in Dusseldorf on May 15.

I hope Lleyton's getting plenty of

attention on his sore toe. A bit of

salt water on the toe. Somewhere

near a beach is the perfect spot.
