We're off to Torino now and here is Beretts with a check of the latest sport. It's been a busy day for Australians in action

Good morning, Simon. Our men's

short track skating is wrapping up,

with a courageous performance in

the 5,000m relay, Australia won the 5,000m relay, Australia won the

B final, finishing comfortably

ahead of Germany.

12 years ago in Lillehammer, Australia won a bronze medal in the 5000m short track final. But in Torino there were no such heroics.

COMMENTATOR: A great performance by the Aussie boys. In the women's 1000m short track, 19-year-old Emily Rosemond finished third in her quarterfinal behind world record holder Korea's Jun Sin-Yu and China's Yang Yang. Jono Brauer's first Olympic campaign hasn't been the best. First, failing to complete the course in the combined slalom, then suffering the same fate in the slalom. He's had a shocking run of injuries and Jon's gone as well Stradling, right, coming into the pitch. And you would think that they would've learned. COMMENTATOR: Oh, this is worse than the first one. They crashed in training, they crashed in the first round oh, and now they've gone again in the third. But that wasn't the end of the bad news for the Brazilian team. After crossing the finish line, the sled slid back down the ramp

before eventually coming to rest on curve 17. With just one day of competition left here's a look at the medal table.

The Brazilians haven't been able to

complete a run the rate way up. With just one day of competition left here's a look at the medal table. Germany has broken away with 11 gold medals. Then it's back to the United States and Austria, both with 9. Russia is fourth, then Canada. And Australia sits a very respectable 17th,

ahead of Japan, Finland and Great Britain. To other sport now and the Australian cricket team has suffered two injury setbacks ahead of today's opening one-day clash against South Africa. All-rounder Andrew Symonds has failed to overcome a hip injury

while paceman Stuart Clark is suffering a rib strain. But team physio Errol Alcott says the pair will most likely be available for game two next Friday.

And the Waratahs and Reds have both suffered defeats after the latest round of the Super 14 overnight. New South Wales lost its first match in three starts going down to the Bulls 26-17 in Pretoria. Queensland now sits in second last place on the table following its 21-20 loss to the Auckland Blues in Brisbane.

Some great news, Geoff Ogilvy is

through to the semis of the match

play championships in California.

That concludes competition for the

Australians in Torino, our campaign

is over, with one gold medal and

one bronze medal. One important

Australians still in action, Ric

Birch, in charge of the closing

ceremony tomorrow night, Italian

carnival is the theme. We look

forward to having you back on deck, travel safelyly.

Now to Sunday's weather. And it looks pretty wet across the board. And looking ahead - The wet conditions will continue in Brisbane over the next couple of days. Although it should fine up in Sydney. Canberra will be cloudy. Hobart will fine up tomorrow before more rain on Tuesday.

Melbourne, fine. Sunny conditions forecast for Adelaide. Perth staying very warm, with the chance of 37 degrees on Tuesday. And the showers and storms will continue in Darwin until the middle of the week.

That's it from the news for now.

That's it from the news for now.

Love those bubble rings. They were

something else, fantastic. What

will it be right when the whale

learns how to smoke! Well it's now been almost 10 years since the death of Princess Diana since the death of Princess Diana and her partner Dodi Al Fayed. And for most of that time, Dodi's father has been insisting their deaths were no accident. Well now an independent inquiry is under way into his allegations. Mohamed Al Fayed is a man not short of opinions.

Sunrise contributor Daphne Barak sat down with the Harrods owner in London. And, as you're about to see, he was in a mood to speak his mind. I am sure, by God's help, that the truth will come out, that the Nazi bastard who has committed such a crime

is Prince Philip, the Queen's husband. He grew up with Hitler's generals,

because his aunty married Hitler general. If she was with a guy, son of a bitch, come from nowhere, right, have no family, have no upbringing, and grow up with his aunty. She married Hitler - one of Hitler's generals, and I hope he will get his punishment and the punishment will be severe for all that, and this is what I believe. It's been a long time

but I will never give up, when I feel I'm right, and when I feel I'm right, all the time God and the angels are with me. I have a lot of threats from them, still. I have security around me. But they know very well if they do anything to me, it would be again another major crime. They will never be able to recover. The Queen is - she have no power, he is the power behind the scene.

She's a nice woman, basically, you know. I met her several times. I was sponsoring the royal horse show for many years, at a cost of millions - a very nice, very humble woman. But unfortunately she has a gangster as a husband, right, and she had to keep the protocol, and they want to survive, and she can't go against what she have got, you know? Really punish her with such an evil bastard. Anyhow... Definitely, because I knew and they told me just before, yes, that she expected a baby. They are going to announce their engagement, he bought her the engagement ring, you know. Everything was just going the right way, and we were just over the moon with all what was happening, the end of all the suffering, she find happiness, you know.

He gave away such a beauty, with a woman likes look a crocodile. See her face when she laughs.

Camilla? Camilla, yes. Camilla looks like a crocodile? A crocodile, yes, that's it. How can he wake up in the morning and see a face like a donkey, you know? I can't believe it, such a bloody idiot. And we looking forward for him to be a king? I don't think he will have a chance. You don't think? No. Now to the fall-out. James Whitaker is a royal correspondent in London. Good morning.

These are extraordinary comment,

even by Mohamed al Fayed's

standards? Yes, they are. This is a

man whose life has been ruined by

the death of Dodi. He also feels

very embit erred towards the

British establishment, and the

royal family. I have to say, they

did not treat him with any kindness

following the death of Dodi. He

didn't get a single letter from any

member of the royal family, saying

how sorry they were about the death

of his son, and neither did the

mother, Mrs Shand Kidd, the mother

of dinena, even acknowledge him

when they went to a court hearing

in Paris. Now his bitterness is

truly coming out Before we move on

to the allegations, are you

surprised about his comments about

Charles and Camilla? It seemed

entirely unnecessary. I quite agree,

it was completely unnecessary to

describe Camilla as having the face

of a horse and looking like a

crocodile. Charles is in love with

this woman. I personally don't

particularly like Camilla and I

think she is a very big problem

when Prince Charles succeeds to the

thron, I think there will be a very

big problem about her becoming

Queen, and I don't think Australian

people would particularly want her

as Queen, but she is the woman that

he has married and I think it's a

gratuitous insult towards her to so

describe her, and I'm sorry that he

did that, it's not necessary.

Mohamed al Fayed has labelled

Prince Philip a murderer before,

but the palace never seems to

respond. Do you think they will

this time? No. I have spoken to a

very senior member of the Queen's

household, who also of course works

for Prince Philip, and they say no,

they are not going to make any

comment at all. They think the man

is completely deranged, and they

are just not going to bother to do

anything. What about Mohamed al

Fayed's insistence that dinena was

pregnant at the time of her death?

Do you think there's any truth to

that? The coroner seemed to think

otherwise, didn't he? I think there

has to be a possibility that she

was pregnant, but Mohamed al Fayed

won't like this - if dinena was

pregnant, it wasn't by Dodi, it was

by another man, the Pakistani

doctor, Dr Khan, with whom Diana

was truly in love. I came to

Australia with Diana shortly before

she dood, the last visit she made,

and she was completely in love with

Dr Khan then. She desperately

wanted to marry him. She was happy

with dough distribution he was kind

to her and she had a very happy

five weeks. That's the only length

of time they were together. If she

was pregnant, we will never know,

because apparently - I don't think

have this absolutely confirmed -

they embamed the lower half of her

body following her death. Why the

French would do that, I have no

idea. If they did, what is what is

being suggested, any evidence of

her being pregnant would be

immediately removed. If she were

pregnant, I repeat, I don't think

it was by Dodi, I think it was by

Dr Khan. The inquiry is going on at

the moment and we will watch with

interest. Thank you for joining us

this morning It's a tragic

situation, actually. It is. Thanks, James. Coming up this morning, why can't we find Osama Bin Laden? Keith Suter will have the answer after 9.00. Also ahead, are teenage girls trying to be sexy too early? It's a segment you voted to see. But next, is there such a thing as a real ghost whisperer? We'll meet one man who says he is.

There are rules that affect what you see on television. These rules cover program classifications.

Well have you seen the new show 'Ghost Whisperer'? It's about a woman Welcome back. Have you seen It's about a woman who's able to communicate with those on the other side. Take a look.

(Dramatic music) Can you see us?

Our next guest has been dubbed Australia's ghost whisperer. All

seeing eyes there. Our next guest has been dubbed Australia's ghost whisperer. Anthony Grzelka hails from Western Australia, but he says his communication skills go much further. Good morning Anthony. Explain to us what you claim your gift to be.

First of all, the word gift is

something Thai feel I need to move

away from. I think it's more of a

talent. I think everybody has some

sort of ability to do something

like this. Calling it a gift

restrigts it to just me and people

like me, but I think it's a broader

ability with a lot more people.

It's about connecting with people

on the other side and proving the survival of consciousness on the

other side. It may be something

that we have some inherent ability

for, but most of us wouldn't

realise that. When did you first

understand you had this talent?

When I was about five - in my mid

teens, I remember looking back to

the age of five and thinking, I was

getting thoughts and emotions and

feelings that weren't mine then. I

can remember growing up, a bit like

the Ghost Whisperer on the

television show, I remember seeing

spirits, but I never thought it was

different. I thought everybody saw

the same thing. When you say you

saw a spirit, do you mean you saw a

whole human being or a ghost-like

figure? Sometimes I would see the

full shape, sometimes a person

standing there, sometimes more just

a halo or a glow or an impression

of a person, more than anything

else. You say that we never die and

that our souls are eternal.

Absolutely. More than that, it is

possible to communicate with them.

How do you prove that? By the work

that I do. If you come to a seminar

or to a private session with me,

these types of things, I give you

absolute proof that it's your loved

ones that I'm talking about, things

that are impossible for me to know.

That is really the proof in the

pudding. Can I test you right now?

Not really. Why not? Sometimes this

happens, it's like asking a tennis

player to have a hit on a tennis

court without warming up. When you

walked on, you didn't see anybody

around me? Not at this stage. What

would you have to do for that to

happen. Just sit with you, for 20

minutes or so, grandparents,

parents whatever. Can we do that

after the show? I have a workshop

today. Don't you hate that. I

suggest do a gallery next time and

I'll show you what's possible. It's

easy to talk about t but the proof

is in the pudding. Many people talk

about this stuff, I'm prepared to

prove it, I have no problems with

that at all. You understand there

are many sceptics out there?

Absolutely. Some of them say you

are playing with people's emotions

and messing with their minds.

Absolutely. How do you answer the

critics? Scepticism is important,

because there is only a handful of

people can do what I do, not

everybody who says they can do it

can do it, or have developed it to

a sufficient point. What I say to

people is, be sceptical because you

will be ripped off if you're not

sceptical. I go to shows and see

other things and say, hang on,

let's get some proof, not just say

this is the case. I'm all about

proof, believe me. Think we are

going to pout this on the test.

Absolutely. I'll come to one of the

workshops and you'll spend 20

minutes with me? I have one

tomorrow night at tomorrow night at new

tomorrow night at new can castle,

7.30. I have to take my children to

footy training tomorrow night. I'm

coming back to Sydney. We will

arrange it. We'll report back with

our findings. Thanks for joining us.

Absolute pleasure. And Australia's ghost whisperer is touring at the moment. For more information, head to the Sunrise web site. Coming up, is 62 too old to be having kids? We'll seek some views.

I think 34 is too old to be having kids. Also ahead, Hollywood beauty Scarlett Johansson. But next, it was the week Sergeant Schultz turned up in Canberra. You're bound to laugh with the Riley Diary.

STEADY DRUMBEAT

..th all-new RAV4 is bursting with uncompact thinking. TOYOTA THEME PLAYS

And don't forget, we're looking for a studio audience for our Melbourne shows,

We are going to do the Ghost

Whisperer, I am going to sit for 20

minutes to see if he can find any.

We will send a camera crew with me.

Are you looking for anyone in particular? I am the ultimate

skeptic, because I am the poker

face When you find them, ask them

when they left the car keys. That's a good idea. Plus a very funny Riley Diary is just moments away. But first, the top stories with Simon. Police are investigating a series of shootings across New South Wales overnight. A man has been shot dead at Robertson,

in the state's southern highlands. His body was found with several gunshot wounds in the front yard of a house. Police are questioning a man. Police are also investigating the death of a man in Kellville in Sydney's north-west. The 37-year-old was shot in his front doorway.

His wife and 6-year-old son were in

the his at the time and weren't

hurt. An 80-year-old man was shot

in the foot while he lay in bed in

Sydney's west. Tasmania is in

mourning, after three teen edge

girls and two Ying women died in an

accident, when they are car crashed

to the wrong side of the bass

highway and crashed into oncoming

traffic. The 27-year-old coach, two

a 15-year-olds and a 14-year-old

girl and one of their morlgts died

at the seen. And Australian golfer Geoff Ogilvy is through to the semifinals of the World Match Play Championships in California. Ogilvy beat Englishman David Howell in a play-off and now meets American Tom Lehman. Weatherwatch now - Wet across most of the country. And that's the latest, back with more at 9.00. There's really only one issue in Canberra at the moment,

the AWB scandal, and more precisely, who was to blame. And as with most blame games, just about everyone goes running for cover. But it's always hard to escape Mark Riley and his weekly diary. Federal Parliament can feel like a prison sometimes, or at least an asylum, but as the Government tries to make a gluten-free escape from the Iraqi wheat bribery scandal it's all feeling a bit like Stalag 13, staring Howard's heroes.

THEME SONG FROM 'HOGAN'S HEROES' PLAYS It's Sergeant Schultz, Colonel Klink and the whole gang saying that after 16 warnings that they see nothing and they know nothing. Well it's not a Sergeant Schultz situation. How can it be a Sergeant Shultz situation? Exactly. How could Labor be so absurd? HOGAN'S HEROES CLIP: I see nothing, I was not here I did not even get up this morning. The government doesn't sound anything like Sergeant Schultz, does it? This government has nothing to hide in relation to this matter. We had nothing to do with the pricing of the contracts or the contracts themselves. We had no knowledge of these kickbacks. Well, there's a vague Schultzian ring to it.

I see nothing. This Government has nothing. We had no knowledge. We had nothing to do with the contracts. I see nothing, nothing. He was out there saying today that he wasn't mounting the Sergeant Schulze defence - I knew nothing.

Well Sergeant Schulze used to wear a helmet, as I remember, in that particular show.

The Prime Minister had better buy himself one. Ah, well, we know from his trip to Iraq last year

that he's got a very natty helmet, thank you very much. Alexander Downer is particularly perturbed by this preposterous Sergeant Schultz stuff. How could you logically make sure you didn't know something?

If you didn't know it, ipso facto, it was unknown to you, you couldn't therefore organise not to know something you didn't know. There's no way Schultz could have gotten his fat head around that. It reminded us of a classic line of defence spouted by another old soldier,

US Defence Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld. As we know, there are known knowns, there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns, that is to say there are things that we now know we don't know.

But there are also unknown unknowns, there are things we do not know we don't know. So we know what we know, but we don't know what we don't know

and some of what's known is unknown and... I don't know. What I do know though, is that one of my favourite parts of 'Hogan's Heroes' was Newkirk's coffee pot listening device. Now that would have been really useful in New York last year when the Prime Minister bumped into Paul Volcker. who was heading the UN's inquiry into the wheat scandal.

Hey, hold it, hold it. The converstaion's getting a bit spicy now. At first, the Prime Minister had trouble remembering the meeting. I don't recall myself having a discussion with Mr Volcker directly. Then he did remembered they meet at his hotel but if it wasn't a discussion they had about the wheat scandal, then what exactly was it? There was a brief reference made in a, what you might call, a chit-chat conversation. Oh, and what was the chit-chat converstaion about? The chit chat was chit chat. It didn't go to the substance of the issue. So not about the AWB? The chit chat was at a non-AWB, non-Volcker-Inquiry-related function. So, nothing about the investigation at all? The chit chat alluded to his investigation but not to the substance of it. Now, old Sergeant Schultz would have been proud of that. I know nothing, nothing. You're not the only one, Schultzy boy.

Nantastic. My head hurts. Alexander

downer is beginning to look like

Shultz as well. He would be a

Colonel, maybe a general. Good

morning, Mark. Good morning. Is

this "I saw nothing ." Defence

working? It's working as long as we

don't know they knew something, but

when it comes to the point that we

know they knew something, it will

look shabby I look the way we are

getting new split cal language out

of this, trucking contract, and now

I feel chitchat will take on a

meaning of its own. It was bt a

discussion, it was a chit - then

there's a pause - a chitchat

conversation, in which nothing was

discussed. I did not talk to that

person, Mr Volcker. Is it going to

be all wheat again? In the middle

of the wheat there's a anniversary.

That's right, 10 years of the

Howard Government, quite an

achievement, copy aplenty in the

papers over the weekend, and more

through the weeks, some parties and

so forth, and so there should be,

10 years is a long time in

government and quite an achievement.

The AWB will dominate the serious

end of politics and Peter Costello

has told us this morning he will

have an inquiry into the tax system

and comparable tax rates, we will

spend another few hundred thousands

of a lazy million of the public's

hard earned finding out how Australia compares with other

countries. A few minutes ago, I

went to the Tax Office web site and

it has a thing on tax in comparable

countries, it came out a couple of

months ago, compares Australia with

countries with similar welfare and

tax systems and says the low paid in Australia pay a reasonable

amount of tax and people over

$50,000 pay too much. I will give

the treasurer that for $1.50, don't

spend a few hundred thousands on it,

that's the answer We look forward

to having some chit and possibly

some chat next week. Yes, but no

discussion. We can understand that. Thanks, Mark. Well, Nelson Aspen has turned up for work this morning

in his tennis outfit!

I turned up in my jockey outfit,

put some money on me in the fourth

at Randwick. We'll find out why in just a few minutes. But next, we're on the home stretch of the Winter Olympics. We'll go behind the scenes with Chris Reason.

FUNKY MUSIC Huggies Wipes clean better.

In March, he'll be working for only

one breakfast show, Grant Hackett

lining up for Sunrise during the Games in Melbourne.

Well it's been another huge week at the Winter Olympics. Our medal tally went up by one again, with Alisa Camplin's bronze in the aerials. But some say the whole competition has been a whole lot of effort

Some critics, kill Joyce, say the

whole competition has been a lot of

effort for a couple of medals. Our own Chris Reason is in Torino. When these games were launched two weeks ago, the catch-cry was passion.

And after a slow start, the heart did began to pump, pulses started racing. But passion came and went, giving way to outright violence. From passion to smashin', the ice hockey teams led the charge. And in places there was meant to be love, there was bitter spite. The Italian dance champions went from fighting for a medal to just fighting. How do you say "not happy, Jan" in Italian? That stare-down lasted a marathon 20 seconds. COMMENTATOR: They skate off, she throws his hand away.

COMMENTATOR: Look at the disappointment.

# Where is the love? # At one point, it seemed the winter world was falling apart - the Russian biathlete who tested positive and got sent home... ..the Austrian athletes who didn't test positive, but ran home anyway... ..and the French cross-country skier who probably couldn't find his way home even if he wanted to. Oh, he's gone the wrong way - gone the wrong way. Oh, the French leader went the wrong way. The week was full of it. This bloke could jump, couldn't ski. And already gone down, oh dear. Crashes and stashes, bangs and prangs - and our team weren't exempt. Jo Carter's ambitions hit a brick wall... ..and it got so much worse. Lydia goes up for jump... Lydia Ierodiaconou came crashing Lydia Ierodiaconou came crashing to the slopes, so did her Olympic dreams. And her cry sent a different type of chill through Torino's mountains. (screams) But these freestyle aerials also gave us two great moments - Jacqui Cooper's world record - right score, wrong day - and Alisa Camplin - a bronze for her collection.

But alongside the Dale Begg-Smith gold medal victory in the moguls, just how successful was Australia's team? Cross-country skiers Paul Murray 51st and Esther Bottomley 52nd,

biathlete Cameron Morton 83rd.

In fact, more than half the team didn't reach top 20. Maybe it's time to ask the question - is Australia suited to winter sports? After all, we come from a place where cross country is run with shorts and sandshoes, where freestyle is normally done in your suburban pool and the skeletons are best kept in the closet. But Australia's Olympic chiefs disagree, calling this a benchmark performance. Yeah, there's no doubt about it, this is our best performing Winter Olympic Games team. Top five, top seven, top eight, lot of other top results. Terrific outcome for our team. Ever so slowly, Australia is starting to notch up results in the winters. And who knows what the future holds? If the Swedish curling team can win a gold old medal and make a hard rock video then surely anything is possible in this Olympic winter wonderland.

# Burning with desire, burning for

the steel

# Hearts on fire #

They are way cool, those curlers.

What's been the highlight this

week? For me, I was there

fortunately at Alisa's medal

attempt, what a moment that was

when she picked up the bronze, we

were hanging on to the edge of our

seats as she was slowly moving down,

at one stage ready for sill version

bumped down to bronze, and held on

to that. It was great. Ian

Chesterman - to get two medals out

of these Games is a fantastic

effort and congratulations on the

team for getting there. Alisa has

been so brave, with all the knee

problems. Any clues on what we can

expect from Ric Birch during the

closing ceremony? Funny you should

say that, the package we filed,

with the shot of me walking through

the stadium, when we went down

there to do that, Avril Lavigne was rehearsing at the time so, that

secret is out of the bag. The

Italians have told us, they had

Pavarotti in the opening ceremony

and Andre a Bocc elli for the

closing ceremony, how good is this

assignment. A little bit after personal concert from Avril Lavigne

in between, it's perfect. Looking

forward to that. We will be playing

that live across the network at

5.30 on Monday morning your time.

Thanks, Reeceo. Have a ball at the

closing ceremony, look forward to

hearing about it. See I next week.

Wouldn't mind seeing Pavarotti sing

an Avril Lavigne number. I like the

sound of that He would add

something to it. You can see the

closing ceremony of the Winter

Olympic Games tomorrow morning,

including performances from Avril

Lavigne, Ricky Martin and others,

in full, before Mel and Kochie are

joined after 8.00 by Priscilla

Presley and Viggo Mortensen from

Lord of the Rings. A huge morning on sun rise. But coming up this morning, is New Orleans in a mood to party? Our Mike Amor will join us live from Mardi Gras. And what do you do if your child's dress sense is just too sexy? We'll seek expert advice. But next, Nelson Aspen in Hollywood. He's got the low-down on Scarlett Johansson's new flick.

In March, she'll be working for

only one breakfast show, Hayley

Lewis, lining up for Sunrise during

the Games in Melbourne. A galaxy of sporting stars. Let's go to the movies now. And when you say Woody Allen, some of us immediately get turned off. But critics say his new film is unlike any of his past offerings. It's called 'Match Point', and stars Scarlett Johansson. Our Hollywood Correspondent Nelson Aspen has been on the case. Nelson, good morning to you. Good morning, Lisa, morning, Andrew. I know, I know, it's a Woody Allen, movie. But unlike Sleeper, Annie Hall or Manhattan, this one is very different and it has virtually nothing whatever to do with tennis. FILM CLIP: You'll do very well for yourself, unless you blow it. How am I going to blow it? By making a pass at me. Match Point is a drama about ambition and obsession. This is a story of lust and greed and who better to motivate those sins than Scarlett Johansson as the femme fatale. What happened happened, Chris. I mean, a lot of things got out control for many reasons. I was upset, I was drinking, and it forms over time and... Stop rationalising. I'm not rationalising. Passions are passions or we'd quit worrying about other people. She's come from a small town in Colorado and doesn't want any part of her past, and she's just looking looking ahead at her future and the possibilities and, you know, there's this certain desperation in that. Irish actor Jonathan Rhys-Meyers plays Scarlett's love interest. The problem is his character is married to someone else. Don't you hate when that happens? I like you when you drink, you get flirtatious. Do I? Yes, confident. I don't think this was a good idea. You shouldn't have followed me here. Do you feel guilty? Do you? You meet somebody that just blows your mind. Now, you know that if you go to bed with her, you're in for a world of pain, you're in for a world of guilt, you're in for a world of lying, which eventually will be found out. This is the latest work of famous writer/director Woody Allen. Woody is a changed man. He's left New York behind for now

and it's the first time he's shot a film in London. And every little detail, you know, was there for me. If I had to get into a museum or a restaurant, it was no problem in London. If I needed it to rain, it rained. If I needed it to be sunny out, it was sunny. One thing about Woody, he's very particular about how he wants things to look. And when you first see my character, she's playing at a ping-pong table, and he was so adamant about how he wanted the character to look when you first see her that, you know, I think I wore, like, three different dresses, I had, like, four different hairstyles,

we shot the scene, like, over and over again. What did I walk into? It's like this. May I? Please. You have to lean in and hit through the ball. I was doing just fine until you showed up.

Ah, story of my life. And the two stars display a lot of sexual chemistry

on and off the court. Isn't she charming? Very nice guy. Very beautiful. And he's so great in the film. Ridiculously talented.

His performance is so complicated and intricate.

She's very sexy in a very extraordinary way. You lied to me. You're a lier. If you want to push the guilt under the rug, then go on. Well, maybe love doesn't always count for something, at least in this movie. If you're wondering what the tennis connection is, one of the lead characters plays a former tennis pro.

So there you go. But I'll tell you, as far as dramas go, this one hits you with its best shot. There's your little tennis pun. Lisa and Andrew, back to you. The ball is in your court.

I saw that coming. Thank you, Nelson. And 'Match Point' opens this Thursday. Although there are already preview screenings this weekend in some cinemas.

Do you have a favourite woody Allen

movie I loved the sleeper, which

was a funny film, and also bullets

over broad way, the period piece.

How about you? Hannah and her sisters was great. Ahead this morning, what did you make of our interview with Mohamed Al Fayed? We'll play some more and seek reaction.

Also coming up, we'll take you to New Orleans. We'll find out what Mardi Gras is like post-Katrina. But next, news with Simon and Beretts in Torino. You're watching Weekend Sunrise on Seven. STEADY DRUMBEAT With intuitive driver-assist technology, ..and 20% more interior space... ..th all-new RAV4 is bursting with ..the all-new RAV4 is bursting with uncompact thinking.

one breakfast show, Melinda gains

forward Taylor lining up for

Sunrise during the Games in Melbourne. That's quite a team. That's quite a team. But our special Melbourne-based editions of Sunrise and Weekend Sunrise

will also include some of the biggest names in Aussie music, such as Rogue Traders and the Whitlams. Stand by for details over coming weeks. Welcome to our second hour of Weekend Sunrise. Shortly, we'll take you live to New Orleans. It's Mardi Gras time again, but is the city in a mood to celebrate? We'll find out. And did you catch our exclusive interview with Mohamed Al Fayed in our first hour? He lashed out at the royal family, insisting we still haven't discovered the truth about the deaths of Princess Diana and his son Dodi. We'll seek some further reaction to what he had to say in a few minutes. Plenty of you also want to have a say on that this morning - so we'll go through the soapbox as well. And later - something new for us, called Your Show, Your Segment. You've been voting all week on the topic you want us t o cover and we'll do just that after 9:30. And boy, does Home and Away know how to do a wedding! They've had at least 23 in Summer Bay since the show began. Kate Ritchie has been to most of them. She'll be here to share her favourites.

She's everywhere. She's been on for

a couple of decades. But first, the latest news with Simon Reeve. Thank you, Lisa.

Good morning. Four shootings in the past 24 hours in New South Wales have left two men dead and an elderly man and policewoman injured. The body of a man with gunshot wounds was discovered lying in the front yard of a house at Robertson, in the Southern Highlands. Police found a weapon at the scene and are questioning a man over the killing. A 37-year-old taxi driver has been shot dead in the doorway of his home

in Kellyville, in Sydney's south-west. We believe he answered a knock at his front door

and he had a conversation with two men and he was subsequently shot. The man's wife and six-year-old son were in the house at the time but weren't hurt. Police are looking for a blue and silver four-wheel-drive. An elderly man has been shot at Guildford, in Sydney's west. The 80-year-old was shot in the foot late last night while he was in bed. Police are searching for a small black sports car. And police have seized a car in connection with the shooting of a policewoman at a station in Sydney.

34-year-old Constable Elizabeth Roth is in a serious but stable condition after she was shot in the stomach behind the counter at Wetherill Park yesterday morning. Northern Tasmania is in mourning after three girls and two young women were killed in a car crash on their way to a basketball tournament. It's believed the 27-year-old coach, Bianca Gourley, was driving when the car crossed to the wrong side of the Bass Highway at Round Hill and collided with two other vehicles. 15-year-old Bianca Thorp, 14-year-old Claire Tapson, 14-year-old Larissa Herron and her 36-year-old mother all died at the scene. Ms Gourley, who was three months pregnant, was also killed. These are relatively small communities in the north-west of Tasmania. The impact upon these communities from this will be enormous. Police say it was raining heavily at the time of the crash. Trade Minister Mark Vaile has arrived in Iraq to try to save Australia's multimillion-dollar wheat deals. He'll meet with the Iraqi Prime Minister who's suspended all trade with Australia until the Cole Inquiry into kickbacks to Saddam Hussein has finished. Almost a decade after the death of Princess Diana and her partner Dodi Al Fayed at least one man remains convinced there was a conspiracy. Dodi's father Mohamed Al Fayed insists their deaths were no accident. He's told Weekend Sunrise

he believes the Queen's husband Philip was involved because his family had connections to Hitler. And I hope he will get his punishment and the punishment will be severe.

An independent inquiry into the deaths is under way. Australian medical researchers have discovered the gene responsible for depression. Their research shows people who carry a short serotonin transporter gene are predisposed to the condition. The discovery will be published in the British Journal of Psychiatry this week and will affect the diagnosis and treatment of the disease. Depression affects one in four Australians.

The European Union is urging people not to panic after France confirmed its first outbreak of bird flu in commercial poultry. The strain was found in turkeys at a farm in Versailleux in the country's south-east. The 11,000 birds on the property either died from the virus or have been slaughtered.

British police have arrested two more men

over the country's biggest ever heist. A 33-year-old and 55-year-old man have been taken into custody on suspicion of conspiracy to commit a robbery. Police have found a large amount of money in a van. Up to $120 million was stolen from a security depot in Kent. A beluga whale is wowing crowds in Japan with a new trick. Allya can blow bubble rings taking aim at spectators watching her every move. Locals believe anyone lucky enough to receive one of Allya's happy bubble ring kisses will enjoy good fortune and happiness. The bubble rings are just another trick in Allya's book, along with ball passing, rolling over on command and of course swimming through hoops. Sport now with Beretts in Torino.

Also very cute this morning,

Beretts in Torino for one of the

last times in sport. I have been

known to blow bubbles in bars in

Torino at night. That's another

story.

The men finished sixth after a courageous performance, in the final. 12 years ago in Lillehammer, Australia won a bronze medal in the 5000m short track final. But in Torino there were no such heroics. COMMENTATOR: A great performance by the Aussie boys. In the women's 1000m short track, 19-year-old Emily Rosemond finished third in her quarterfinal behind world record holder Korea's Jun Sin-Yu and China's Yang Yang. Jono Brauer's first Olympic campaign hasn't been the best. First, failing to complete the course in the combined slalom, then suffering the same fate in the slalom.

He's had a shocking run of injuries and Jono's gone as well, straddling right, coming into the pitch. And you would think that they would've learned. COMMENTATOR: Oh, this is worse than the first one. They crashed in training, they crashed in the first round oh, and now they've gone again in the third.

But that wasn't the end of the bad news for the Brazilian team. After crossing the finish line, the sled slid back down the ramp before eventually coming to rest on curve 17. With just one day of competition left here's a look at the medal table.

The Brazilians haven't been able to keep it up the right way. And Australia sits a very respectable 17th,

ahead of Japan, Finland and Great Britain. Australian Geoff Ogilvy currently has the upper hand in his semifinal against Tom Lehman

at the World Match Play Championship in California. Ogilvy is poised to take his place in the final and leads the American by three strokes after six holes. and the Australian cricket team has suffered two injury setbacks ahead of today's opening one-day clash against South Africa. All-rounder Andrew Symonds has failed to overcome a hip injury while paceman Stuart Clark is suffering a rib strain. But team physio Errol Alcott says the pair will most likely be available for game two next Friday. And Sydney FC will discover its grand final opponent today when Adelaide United and the Central Coast do battle at Hindmarsh Stadium. Adelaide is favourite to take the match but the Central Coast come into the game on an 11-match unbeaten run. And if you're an English rugby fan you best look away now.

Because overnight

the 2003 Rugby World Cup winners were beaten by Scotland at Murrayfield. The 18-12 victory was the first time the Scots have beaten their old foe in six years. And the Waratahs and Reds have both suffered defeats Just two events left to be decided at these Games including the men's ice hockey gold. That'll see Sweden and Finland clash for the equivilent of the Ashes of ice hockey. There's plenty coming your way tonight from Torino and we're expecting a spectacular closing ceremony - Italian Carnivale is the theme. Expect passion plus. And you can see it live right here before Sunrise tomorrow morning.

Looking forward to it. I can see

you leading the conga line, Beretta.

Now to Sunday's werg. Now to Sunday's weather. And it looks pretty wet across the board. And looking ahead - The wet conditions will continue in Brisbane over the next couple of days. Although it should fine up in Sydney. Canberra will be cloudy.

Hobart will fine up tomorrow before more rain on Tuesday. Melbourne, fine. Sunny conditions forecast for Adelaide.

Perth staying very warm, with the chance of 37 degrees on Tuesday. And the showers and storms will continue in Darwin

until the middle of the week.

Back to Lisa and Andrew. It's six

months since hurricane Katrina

struck New Orleans, leaving more

than a million people homeless, but

since then people have trugled to

recover. The Mardi Gras is in full swing. Our correspondent Mike Amor

is there. Good morning. Is New

Orleans in the mood for a party?

Good morning, I never thought I

would appear on TV in beads, but at

the Mardi Gras you have to do what

the locals do. They are very

colourful. They are celebrating,

although it's literally raining on

their parade today, which was

cancelled due to bad weather The

people of New Orleans are doing

their best to celebrate, when a

lost them don't feel like it,

putting on a brave face and a show

for the tourists. This is one of

the T-shirts you can buy.

Thankfully, they haven't lost their

sense of humour. It's poking fun at

the looting that went on here. It

says "I stayed in New Orleans for

Katrina and all I got was this

lousy T-shirt, a new cad lack and a

plasma TV." Thank goodness they

have not lost their sense of humour.

Some people have argued the Mardi

Gras should have been cancelled and

the money spent on re-establishment

of people's homes and environment.

What's the feeling there? You're

right, a lot of residents say that

with so many people left homeless,

the money spent on the Mardi Gras

should have been spent on trying to

find homes and accommodation, as

there are still a lot of people

homeless. They say that putting on

the Mardi Gras sends the wrong

message to the rest of the world,

that New Orleans has recovered,

when it has not recovered at all.

The mayor says it's important to

rebuild tourism, as the industry is

so critical to this town. Also, he

says it's time for the residents of

New Orleans to take a break, after

the Mardi Gras is over they can get

back to rebuilding the city. Only

one in five residents has rushed to

their homes, so it's a much smaller

city hosting this famous party this

year. We took a tour of some of the

devastated areas, a bus too for

tourists that they are running here.

In downtown New Orleans you can't

see that many signs of can

treenyafplt you go just a few

blocks out of the main city centre

and it's stag egg. I want to read

some of the statistics. $100

billion property damage, 215 homes

lost, 220,000 jobs lost, only

40,000 of the 80,000 businesses

have reopened and there is 25 times

for debris in this city than there

was after the World Trade Center

collapse, and more importantly

1,300 lives lost and people still

missing, including 80 children, so

a lost of work still to be done.

There certainly is. I hope you

enjoy yourself amongst the rubble

of both the city and the party.

Thanks very much for bringing that

to us. We'll try. I think you had

to take off your shirt to score

those beads, so Mike has been

working hard. That might have been

just body paint, he wasn't wearing a jacket. Ahead this morning, are we getting closer to finding Osama Bin Laden? Keith Suter will have the latest on the worldwide hunt. And are teenage girls trying to be sexy too soon? We'll seek some views. But next, about the death of Princess Diana? will we ever know the truth about the death of Princess Diana?

The fall-out from our interview with Mohamed Al Fayed. VOICEOVER: Who wants a plain old milk moustache? (Children sing) # Cottee's make the milkshakes The south coast of NSW is a beautiful holiday escape. It's a very serene place 'cause there's so few people and so much beauty. A whole universe is just there, on a table, just for us. To sit there in the morning

and look out at the expanse of the ocean going out to Montague Island - it's my morning meditation. The NSW south coast - there's no place like it. To plan your holiday, visit our website. Mohamed Al Fayed is no stranger to controversy. He's claimed for years that Princess Diana and his son Dodi were murdered. But has he gone too far this time? If you missed our exclusive interview earlier on Weekend Sunrise here's just part of what he had to say.

He gave away such a beauty, with a woman likes look a crocodile. See her face when she laughs. Camilla? Camilla, yes. Camilla looks like a crocodile? A crocodile, yes, that's it. How can he wake up in the morning and see a face like a donkey, you know?

I can't believe it, such a bloody idiot. And we looking forward for him to be a king? I don't think he will have a chance.

He would be a very sensitive

husband, Mohamed al Fayed. Well, he certainly lets fly. So what do we think? It's over to Weekend Sunrise All Stars Glenn Wheeler and Rebecca Le Tourneau. Good morning to you both. Glenn, what do you make of Al Fayed's comments?

Spot on, spot on. The crocodile bit

or the gangster bit? The crocodile,

the gangster, the donkey. The only

mistake Mohamed al Fayed has made

is that he needs to think about

whether it's a crocodile or a

donkey, because there's a distinct

difference between the two. I would

have said more of a donkey. We are

talking about a human being here,

Camilla. That's incredibly cruel

and possibly unnecessary. He wants

to find out how his son died. What

Camilla looks like is beside the

issue. We are looking at a man who

is extraordinarily wrinkly, he

doesn't have a right to be calling

anybody - We are getting away from

the issue. It is also moving away

from the most important part, which

is Diana died, and even those of us

who never had any policing

experience found it a very strange

and mysterious death. Very strange.

She was a much loved person. ..dot

then I will washing from here to

London naked. You think there is

something to the conspiracy theory?

Yes, and at the end of the inquiry

if Lord Stevens is able to say what

they find, and if there has been a

cover-up, all hell could break

loose. We could spell the end of

the monarchy. There has been enough

speculation to know something will

come out of that. With Mohamed al

Fayed, I think the crocodile and

donkey comments were irrelevant.

This man loved their son and wants

to get to the bottom of what

happened. I am not sure they will

get to the bottom of it, nothing

conclusive will come out of it. He

made one pertinent comment when he

said, this man wants to be king, no

way. I think a lot of people agree

with that. Time to shift focus. How

would you feel about having a baby

in your 60s? Even as a father, I

would feel quite confronted. There

are plenty of late nights when I

feel like I'm in my 60s. Whole

months when I feel like I'm in my

60. A California 62-year-old great

grandmother gave births births to

her 12th child. I feel this is my life, I have always enjoyed kids

and found it a challenge and it's

worthwhile and I think I'm a much

better parents now that I am older,

a little wiser maybe, more easy going. What would Mohamed al Fayed

say about her? Hold that thought,

Andrew. How much work has that

woman had to prop up her face? What

sort of sick puppy doctor would put

a baby in a 62-year-old woman? She

had another one three and a half

years ago. Yet there are plenty of

62-year-old first-time fathers or

repeat fathers. Why is that a woman

being a mother at 62 shocks us so

much? Why can't a woman be a mother

at 62? My mother at 80 still treats

me like her only son. She still

treats you like a child. Which is

probably appropriate on occasions

for me. Mothers have a maternal

thing at any age. I had a caller

talking about this some weeks back,

who made a very good point. Why

should it be an issue, because I'm

68 years of age and I have a

2-year-old daughter. My daughter

died of cancer. That's a completely

different situation. You have to

take off your hat, there are

grandparents all over the country

who take on children in a time of

emergency, desperation or a tragedy.

But bottom line, this is ludicrous.

Apart from the fact that every

single day someone is going to come

up to that woman and child and say,

aren't you a lucky grandma, and

that kid will hear that every day.

IVF is a miracle which provides

children to people can who cannot

otherwise have them, that is eye

abuse. It is not our prerogative to

comment on whether she wants to be

a mother, good luck to the woman.

This is the RU486 argument in

reverse, because this woman is

saying, I want to be a mother. Let

her be a mother. She will probably

be a very good mother. Hee already

has 11. The idea behind IVF is for

people struggling to have children.

If she wants to look after children,

adopt them. I think you are being

very harsh? Haven't you had

breakfast? No, I haven't, would you

make me some? Thanks for coming in. Ahead this morning, must-see TV for anyone who likes a good wedding, not to mention a wedding dress. 'Home and Away's' Kate Ritchie will be here with some bridal goss from Summer Bay. But next, headline news with Simon. And where in the world is Osama Bin Laden? Expert insight from Keith Suter. Hyundai says thank you, with Accent from just $14,990. Get a free upgrade from the 3-door to the 5-door model and a leading 5-year warranty with unlimited kilometres. Hyundai. 20 years in Australia.

In March, she'll be working for

only one breakfast show, Liz Ellis

lining up for Sunrise during the Games in Melbourne. Plenty of stars coming your way tomorrow. The one and only Priscilla Presley will join us live in the studio.

And if that wasn't enough, 'Lord of the Rings' hunk Viggo Mortensen is here as well, to talk about his new movie.

Also, this was the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympics. Tomorrow morning, Sunrise will show the Closing Ceremony in full. Keith's Global Notebook is just moments away, but first the top stories with Simon. Thank you, Andrew. Good morning, everyone. Checking news headlines this Sunday morning - Tasmania is in mourning

Two men have been shot dead in two separate murders in New South Wales overnight. A 37-year-old taxi driver was killed in the doorway of his home.

Police seized a firearm from the

scene and are questioning a man

over the killing. A 37-year-old taxi driver was killed in the doorway of his home.

The manning's wife and 6-year-old

son were not house at the time but weren't injured. Tasmania is in mourning after three teenage girls and two young women died in a car accident yesterday.

The group were on their way to a basketball tournament. It's believed 27-year-old coach Bianca Gourley was driving when the car crossed to the wrong side of the Bass Highway at Round Hill and crashed into oncoming traffic. Police say it was raining heavily at the time of the accident. And Australia's short track speed skating team has finished sixth in the 5,000m relay in Torino. Our team beat Germany and comfortably won the B final. Weatherwatch now - It's a wet day for most of the country. Thunderstorms expected in some capitals today. You're up to date on Weekend Sunrise.

No whales that time? No, maybe during the week. He's proving harder to find than anyone thought.

Just where is Osama Bin Laden? This week, another one of those scratchy audio tapes surfaced, with the voice of the world's most wanted man. Take a listen. I have sworn to only live free. bitter the taste of death, Even if I find bitter the taste of death,

Bin Laden is vowing to go down fighting. But why is it so hard to find him? Our Foreign Affairs Editor, Dr Keith Suter, is here. Morning to you. Good morning. Keith, where is Osama Bin Laden?

There are a number of speculations.

The most obvious place is a

province that stradles the border

between Afghanistan and Pakistan,

which contains tribes of people who

don't like Afghanistan or Pakistan,

let alone the Americans, so nobody

dares go into that area. That's the

most obvious place. There are talks

that he may have fled to Saudi

Arabia or the Yemen, but he's safer

in that province because nobody

will look there, because they would

be killed by the tribes people.

It's a 1,500 mile strip of land,

some of the most ruged terrain in

the world. Yet America could find

Saddam Hussein, so why not go after

Osama bin Laden? You need to be a

brave person to go into the

mountains. The British had a number

of expeditions into those areas,

one of them by the young Winston Churchill. It was difficult to

maint
