What has she revealed?

Well, nurse Jennifer White has told

the commission that she - she took

us inside the operating theatre for

the first time with Dr Patel. She

scrubbed up next to him and

recalled would accidentally slash

healthy organs and not try to

minimise blood loss. She recalled

when the doctor performed the wrong

operation on a patient in for

explorative urge surgery by mistake. From 1974 until that day, having an incorrect procedure I'd never experienced any patient or any operating theatre, in any hospital I've worked in so I was quite devastated.

The nurse recalls an occasion where

Jayant Patel called her frantically

after hearing about a car accident

outside Bundaberg where people were

trapped within the wreckage. He

wanted to go out to the site and

asked the nurse to prepare a

trolley full of amputation

equipment. She he was so

overexcited it reminded her of a

crazy episode of Mash. He headed to

the crash site and the emergency

services had managed to pull the

people from the wreckage before he

got there so he was called backway

and that's when the nurse

remembered he had no drugs or pain

relief to perform roadside

amputations. There are fears

emerging there may in fact be more

cases of negligence involving other

doctors in other Queensland

hospitals? That's true. If there is,

this commission wants to flush them

Equality of the sexes seems to be a myth when it comes to household chores, with women still doing far more than than their male partners, despite working longer hours. Sex Discrimination Commissioner Pru Goward

says it's time things changed.

Good morning. You have got a report

out today that details this. What

sort of facts and 23s can you give

sort of facts and 23s can you give us? I think as you just said --

figures. When men and women both

work full-time in a household,

she's doing over twois as many

hours in housework as well. Even in

households where the man doesn't

work at all, she does 16 hours and

he does 13. This isn't a whinge,

Ron. This isn't women going on

about it. This is about national

imperatives. If we want women to

work more and that's what the

treasurer keeps saying, we need to

improve Australia's work effort,

older people need to work more and

so do women of younger ages. They

can't do that if they're the ones

doing 16 hours a day housework and

they're the ones that are always

picking up kids and looking after

children and they're the ones

taking older parents to Alzheimer's

appointments, doctor's appointments

and getting their hair done and so

on. There's got to be a shift or

else we won't have an increase in

the workforce rate. What are the

economic benefits of evening out

the work load? The most important

one for the country is we get more

people in work. We have an aging

workforce and if we don't get more

people into work, who is going to

pay the taxes to keep had biggest

generation in history, the baby

boomers - us - in retirement with

all the things we need like

pensions and health benefits which

to date have been generous and free.

How do you break through the jest

and make this a worthwhile topic?

It needs leadership. Here's my

paper. Let's go away and have the

country talk about it and have

leadership from the governments and

people who know the figures and the

inevitability of where Australia is

heading saying, "Yes, we're not

going to increase the paid work

effort if we don't rebalance the

unpaid work effort." Thanks, Prue. Big Brother is investigating 'Big Brother' with an inquiry ordered into the show's content. Some Federal Government MPs claim the program's saucy uncut version is corrupting young viewers. Several are even accusing 'Big Brother' of breaching the TV industry's code of practice. Quite apart from its mind-boggling banality, I think it lowers the standard of Australian television. And I think that it was pointed out

that perhaps some of what's on SBS might be looked at too. The push against the show is being lead by Liberal MP Trish Draper, who was herself involved in a sex scandal when she took her partner on a taxpayer-funded trip to Europe.

What is Hollywood's all-time classic movie quote? A poll's been taken, and we'll tell you the results when Ten's Morning News returns. And party prince Harry pulled into line - why the Queen missed his first Sandhurst parade. This program is captioned live.

After 41 years justice has been served in Mississippi. A crippled pensioner has been convicted of killing three civil rights activists in 1964. After four decades, justice has finally caught up. We the jury find Edgar Ray Killen guilty of manslaughter. The 80-year-old the first and only person convicted over one of America's most shameful crimes.

Portrayed in the film 'Mississippi Burning', the 1964 murders took place as African Americans were fighting for equal rights. 20-year-old Andrew Goodman, 21-year-old James Chaney and 24-year-old Michael Schwerner travelled to racially divided Mississippi to help black people register to vote. They were ambushed, murdered and buried in remote woodlands. Only because they wanted to help others, they paid for it with their lives. For 41 years, no-one was tried over the murders. Local authorities were accused of a cover-up,

because it was claimed they were involved in the crime. Many of the alleged perpetrators have died and victims' families had nearly given up hope.

But after intense research and lobbying, they got the case back in court. This time prosecutors were able to prove Killen was the Ku Klux Klan leader who gathered 20 men to carry out the killings. To finally have some recognition of the terrible thing that happened. The conviction a new opportunity to address ongoing racial tension. The light will shine on this community on this day slightly,

but we're still living in the dark. In the United States, Rahni Sadler, Ten News. Seven people are dead after a train crashed into a truck in Israel.

Another 190 passengers were injured in the smash, the country's worst rail accident in a decade.

Military helicopters rushed patients to surrounding hospitals as rescue teams pulled survivors from the wreckage. Two front carriages tipped over when the train hit the truck, which was crossing the tracks on an isolated dirt road. A shocking helicopter crash in Sweden. On board was a 100-year-old man being taken on a birthday flight. He had just been picked up from a nursing home, along with three generations of his family,

when the pilot lost control. The chopper hit trees and clipped the top off a lamp post, but amazingly no-one was seriously injured. Prince Harry was on parade at Sandhurst today, but his grandmother wasn't there to see him.

The Queen had to cancel after catching a cold. He's in the army now. Officer Cadet Wales Henry, known to all as Harry, except to sergeant major to whom he's still presumably a horrible little man, sir.

Officer Cadet Wales has completed the first stage of his military training five weeks in which the soft civilian edges of life are knocked out of the cadets. He's now moved onto the second stage of the year-long course. The academy should have been receiving new colours from the Queen but she has a cold and has lost her voice

so the ceremony was performed by the country's most senior military officer - the chief of the defence staff, General Sir Michael walker. Drawn up in the square in sweltering heat, one of the army's most junior officer cadets seemed at home. Harry's appearance in uniform and William's imminent graduation from St Andrew's prompting the inevitable question - will there soon be a second officer Cadet Wales at Sandhurst? The answer to that is probably. Prince William has had a preliminary interview with the army though no final decision about his future has yet been taken. They're calling it an archaeological sensation -

the discovery of a body believed to be 2,500 years old. The remains of the young woman have been found in a peat bog in Germany. At first police thought it was a case of murder, but soon realised she wasn't a victim but an amazing specimen. Scientists say the teenager died in the bog 650 years before the birth of Christ. Those film quotes we can't forget have been compiled into a best-ever list. Making it into the top five of the "Movie Quotes of the Century" list, 'Casablanca's "Here's looking at you, kid". Marlon Brando's turn as the Godfather at number two. I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse. So, what did the 1,500 film-makers and critics vote into the top spot? Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn. Clark Gable's immortal line from 'Gone with the Wind' the unanimous choice.

Carl Jensen at Commonwealth Securities. And car sales are in the spotlight?

The latest data reveals sales of

new motor vehicles fell 1.2% to

82,000 cars. Overall, car sales are

likely to push towards the million

With oil prices near record highs,

no doubt consumers will be looking

for more fuel efficient cars when

they go to the motor vehicle lot. Justine Henin-Hardenne is the biggest seed to bow out overnight at Wimbledon. But there was more success for Australia in the men's and women's singles draws. The Aussie flag was flying high at Wimbledon on Day 2 as Wayne Arthurs blasted his way into the second round, upsetting Italian Filippo Volandri in straight sets. COMMENTATOR: Nice way to finish. Compatriot Nicole Pratt also had reason to celebrate, coming from a set down to win her first Wimbledon match in eight years, making it four Aussies through to round two. The woman to beat could be defending champion Maria Sharapova, who breezed through her opening match, but struggled to maintain her composure in the press conference. PHONE RINGS Oh, sorry. Shit. Day 2 provided a huge upset - French Open champion and seventh seed Justine Henin-Hardenne falling to Eleni Daniilidou in three sets. Local hope Tim Henman survived a first round scare, defeating Finland's Yarkko Nieminen in a 3.5-hour five-setter.

His gruelling match in contrast to number two seed Andy Roddick, who barely raised a sweat getting past Jiri Vanek. While spare a thought for Germany's Tommy Haas - the 19th seed freakishly twisting his ankle in the warm-up. The painful foot fault forcing him to forfeit the match. Thai Neave, Ten News. A victory for the Adelaide Crows at the AFL tribunal last night. Star midfielder Brett Burton is in the clear - given only a reprimand for a rough conduct charge. Brett Burton was convinced he had done nothing wrong on Saturday night, and he left vindicated last night, with the tribunal clearing him

of a what he said was only a hip and shoulder. You play the game 'cause you love it, and you don't want to get rubbed out for anything, injury or suspension. This means I can play, which is good. In yet another contentious ruling under the new tribunal process, the Crows argued Burton's bump was negligent rather than reckless. COMMENTATOR: Oh! Bang! He's copped one in the moosh. The tribunal agreed. They changed the charge, placing the midfielder in the clear. Just wanted to get that downgraded to negligent.

Just didn't think it was an intentional act to be of an obvious risk, I suppose. So succeeded in getting it downgraded to negligent, which meant it was a reprimand. It's the third time in as many weeks players have received reduced penalties from rough conduct charges. Opinions remain divided as to the success of the AFL's new judicial system. In what we've seen this year, I thought he would have been suspended for two. The AFL could step in and say, "We're not happy and we're gonna appeal this decision." I just feel this system has got a lot more merit. I feel the players feel more comfortable in it. I certainly feel more comfortable. Tim Hodges, Ten News. Broncos veteran Shane Webcke belives Queensland have to develop more forwards for future State of Origin battles.
