but won't stand in the way of the legislation. However, what is being proposed by the Howard Government is an advance. But Labor failed to make any political advance out of the issue when Shadow Minister Laurie Ferguson stunned colleagues by suggesting the release of Australia's longest serving detainee Peter Qasim was a worrying precedent because he had refused to cooperate with immigration authorities.

What could and should have been high ground for Labor became a messy low point, with Mr Beazley forced to both explain and correct a senior frontbencher's statements. You'll find that Laurie has revised his position. The point is he should be out. Laurie believes that, so do I. Greg Turnbull, Ten News. A drive for a 40-hour working week has ended in a hasty rethink by the Federal Government. Under siege in Parliament, the Workplace Relations Minister took the option off the table. Reports today that longer working hours would become the standard in the Government's workplace revolution saw the Opposition on the attack. Can the Minister guarantee under the Government's industrial changes, employees will not have their conditions reduced? Kevin Andrews, keen to paint his reforms as user-friendly. He backed away from a 40-hour standard, nominating the current more common 38-hour week. I expect what represents the common community standard will be what we decide. (Government members) Hear, hear. Labor says that's far from a guarantee. It also accuses the Government of hypocrisy for denying workers in the Minister's own department of Workplace Relations real choice. Isn't it the case that the Minister has been doing precisely that in his own department with all new employees having no choice but to sign individual contracts? It is a fact, but the Minister says those already on individual workplace agreements are better off. Those people who have taken up AWAs are being paid higher salaries than those on certified agreements. Kevin Andrews is demanding the unions withdraw their TV ads as misleading. But the ACTU says the Workplace Relations Department proves the point. Kim Beazley will spend the next six weeks campaigning against the workplace reforms. He badly needs to regain momentum with Newspoll showing his approval dramatically down and Labor still trailing the Government.

Mr Beazley says it's the price he paid for taking a tough stand on the tax cuts. Paul Bongiorno, Ten News. There's been more examples of Dr Jayant Patel's disturbing habits when working in a Queensland hospital. Ten News Reporter Danielle Isdale is at the Royal Commission investigating his activities, and, Danielle, another death has been linked to the fugitive surgeon. Well, Bundaberg Hospital nurse Lindsay Druce reviewed all of Dr Patel's patients who had catheters inserted by the surgeon. She found he had a 100% failure rate, so they were all inserted incorrectly. The man who suffered most from those mistakes was Eric Nagel. He died on the operating table when Dr Patel tried to correct the positioning of his catheter. The experienced nurse was shocked. I have not experienced the death of a patient because of insertion of permacaths. Nurse Druce's unit manager, Robin Polak, also took the stand

giving examples of how little Dr Patel cared for patient's safety. He did more than not wash his hands, it seems. She recalls one occasion where Dr Patel tried to use the same syringe on two different patients. Nurses had to jump in and take the dirty needle off him. She also spoke of the shocking lengths

that nurses and staff would go to to protect patients from Dr Patel and one occasion doctors who weren't surgeons scrubbed up and tried to insert one of these catheters in a patient who would have died without the urgent surgery after watching an instructional video. They perforated the man's bladder as a result. He felt there was no other option. This patient was going to die so that's what you do.

We've heard Dr James Patel

brother-in-law in India has

reportedly claimed the family will

make Dr Patel an outcast if he's

found guilty of causing the death

of these patients. They'll be

convinced to cut him loose if he's convicted.

Did you kill your baby? No, I did not. When we come back - what happened to this woman's baby and what's making it difficult for police to get to the bottom of the mystery. And later in the news - the price of petrol skyrocketing again but there's something you can do to help ease the pressure. The only thing that will bring this market down will be a decrease in demand. At this point, that would be the only remedy we can see. DANCE MUSIC GIRL: Are you alright? Roll her over! What did she take? I don't know what was in it! I think it was ecstasy.

(Whimpers) Hey, are you alright? BOY: I don't know why she takes it. She always gets so depressed coming down. Hmm. Done quite a bit of damage in there. I didn't know how many health problems it could cause. The grinding has cracked your front teeth. This is pretty serious. (Doctor barks orders) GIRL: They don't know whether he's gonna make it. NURSE: It's touch and go. We're doing all we can. He just wanted to try something new. This program is captioned live. An incredible escape for six people, including a 100-year-old patient, in Sweden this evening.

Police say the Lithuanian-registered helicopter had been chartered to fly the 100-year-old man from hospital at Heby, about 100km from Stockholm. But seconds after lifting off, the chopper's rotor clipped a tree, then a light pole,

then went out of control and crashed in a cloud of dust. Amazingly, no-one was badly hurt

and they managed to lift the old man from the wreckage.

He's now back in the Heby hospital. A court has been shown home video of a woman attending a wedding two days after giving birth in secret. Keli Lane told no one about her pregnancy, and still insists she has no idea what happened to the baby. This is where Keli Lane went just hours after leaving hospital with her newborn baby daughter Tegan. All smiles at a friend's wedding, hiding a secret from all who attended, including the boyfriend by her side, Duncan Gillies. When welfare workers discovered the truth, Lane gave police false lead after false lead, adamant of only one thing. But a 6-year police investigation has been unable to rule out that possibility. 30-year-old Lane says the child's father has custody of Tegan,

but has given numerous versions of who he is and where he lives, even in the face of a suspected homicide. I don't know about them. This is the case worker who uncovered Lane's pregnancy history while arranging the adoption of her third child. He told an inquest, Lane denied having had three children until he mentioned he would have to go to the police. To this day, Tegan's birth still isn't recorded. If Tegan is alive, it's possible she could be registered under a different name and birth date, making her impossible to trace. The scenario prompting the Coroner to suggest the responsibility for registering children be left to government authorities and not the parents. Lane has been supported by her husband and father during proceedings and is now the mother of another little girl. Amber Muir, Ten News. A rare insight into the mind of Saddam Hussein

from the soldiers who spent 10 months guarding him. Sean O'Shea and Jonathon Reese say the former dictator was always a perfect gentleman.

They described his love of Doritos, obsession with washing and fondness for Ronald Reagan. At first they were overwhelmed. I was dumbfounded. My buddy walked up to the door and knocked on his door and stuck his hand in and waved at him.

And I'm like, "Get it out of there, get it out of there, "he's going to chop it off!"

Saddam told the men he'd eventually be back in power and promised to show them around his country. When we come back - the price of petrol sky rocketing again but there's something you can do to help ease the pressure. The only thing that will bring this market down will be a decrease in demand. At this point that would be the only remedy we can see. We are effectively turning an operating room Cutting edge technology lets you see operations live on the net.

The man was riding along Richmond Road at Londonderry with a friend, when a car hit them and didn't stop. The man, aged in his 20s, died at the scene. His friend has been taken to hospital in a serious condition. Investigators are asking for the driver of the car to come forward, and want any witnesses to the incident to call police. Petrol prices are on the way up, and they're set to reach a new record. Filling up the tank could cost $1.20 a litre within a few weeks. Rising petrol prices are syphoning the change from hip pockets and leaving motorists fuming. It's too much, too much. I can't afford it.

Driven by spiralling costs for crude oil, petrol prices have jumped from less than $1 per litre this time last year. And there's no relief in sight - experts predict they'll soon reach $1.20. There's a strong possibility that within the next few months we'll have the highest ever petrol prices in Australia. A weekend rally for oil in the US has pushed crude to record prices. In 12 months it's soared 57%, poised to break through $60 a barrel. I would be very hopeful that the world would see some sort of reality in this and drop the crude price. US market analysts say that's unlikely. The only thing that will bring this market down will be reduction of demand. At this point that would be the only remedy we can see. The ripple effect will be far-reaching. Climbing transport costs passed on to shoppers at the check-out. If the price of petrol keeps going up, we'll have to pass that on to the consumer in the end. We can only absorb so much. Some industries are bracing for the worst.

If my boss goes down, I won't have a job, I won't be able to feed my family. I'll have to look for something else to do. The Federal Government says it won't consider reducing the fixed 38% GST paid on every litre. Rakhal Ebeli, Ten News. To finance news now, and at Commonwealth Securities, Tom Piotrowski. And oil prices are keeping the market jittery, Tom?

It's true, but it's an interesting

situation because recently higher

oil prices haven't been a problem

for the market. For example, over

the course of the last month the

share market has risen by just

under 10% but in that same period,

we've seen oil prices rise by about

27%. What's the difference now?

Prices are closing in on the $60

mark and we've seen successive

highs in recep sessions. So if we

do see prices breach the $60 mark,

that will take a bit of readjusting

from the psychological point of

view for the market. Today we saw

oil stocks taking a bit of profit

taking given the strong gains

we've seen in recent sessions. Some

rather bad news from Cal tex?

That's right. Australia's biggest

oil refiner said today late in the

evening that it expects its first

half profit result to come in somewhere

between $135 million to $150

million. It's a substantial profit

downgrade. It comes where the Cal

tex shares are at its best levels

ever so tomorrow should see the

market pay attention to Cal texment It's the latest advance in reality TV and by far the most drastic. 'ORTV' lets you watch operations live. It's not 'ER', it's 'OR', and it's not make-believe, it's real. Should you be so inclined,

you can watch real operations as they happen via live webcasts - anything from gastric bypass to facelifts. We are effectively turning an operating room into a television production studio. Not surprisingly, it's an American initiative that began as an educational tool for doctors. But now patients about to go under the knife are using it to be better prepared. It wasn't scary. It put myself in a position where I knew what was going to happen to me. In fact, he chose his surgeon after watching him do a few ops. For consumers, it is, effectively, a way to shop around. It's not called an operating theatre for nothing - just like any live TV show, the shots are called from a studio next door to surgery. They just have to watch when they yell "cut". I'll make an incision right about here. The top-rating show is the gastric bypass, used to help obese people lose weight. Viewers able to email in any questions.
