Thanks, Simon. If you're a surfer,

get out there today. I was down the

beach before the show, the swell

was enormous, really pounding in.

You weren't tempted I wasn't, I sat

there and watched it for quite a whiefplt One in five Australian children is now considered overweight. And that makes childhood obesity one of our fastest growing health problems. State health ministers believe

junk food advertising could be partly to blame. John Hartzistergos is the minister in New South Wales. Good morning to you. Good morning. What's wrong with these types of ads?

There are a number of problems.

Firstly, we have the situation

where the extent of advertising

which is done in children's

programs is two to three times the

rate of that in adult programs for

rate of that in adult programs for

foods which are high in fat and

sugar. The second thing is we have

ads which encourage repeat

purchasing, through the use of

collections of toys and other

objects, and entries into prize

competitions, which again encourage

people to purchase more and more of

these types of products. You have

had the meeting of all the

ministers, a bit of a round table.

What have you decided that you can

do about this advertising? There

was disagreement between ourselves

and the Commonwealth as to the way

to go forward. The Commonwealth wanted to conduct further research

into the matter. The states took

the view there is enough research

around to establish the link

between these purchases and

consumption and advertising. So for

this reason the states and

territories agreed that we

territories agreed that we will be

assembling a group together to

develop options for consideration

by ministers at their next meeting

in Brisbane in four months. What

options are you talking about?

Would you look at banning this type

of advertising completely,

especially during children's TV

time? I think it goes beyond the

question of simply advertising per

se, and that is not my preference.

We need

We need to look at the intensity

and content of advertise, are, the

use of prizes than promotions and

the use of celebrities who purchase

the product. It is part of growing

up that children should experience

a wide range of foods and I am

knotted advocating that we do not

do that. I am saying we should have

those foods consumed in moderation

as part of a balanced diet and as

part of a regime that includes

exercise. Advertisers is part of

the equation, but don't you think

that parents are the people with

the chief responsibility for

monitoring this? After all, they

usually do the cooking or buying of

the food. Parents do have a

responsibility. It is also

necessary to note the fact that we

have a situation where, amongst the

adult population, 50% of adults are

overweight and obese. Yes, our

strategies do include targeting

parents as suitable role models,

but the rising rate of childhood

obesity is particularly disturbing.

Over the last 10 years, the number

of overweight children has doubled,

the number of obese children has

tripled, and unless something is

done, we will have the rates

increasing by about 0.5 to 1% every

year. Something needs to be done

urgently. Yes, parents are

important, but we can't

underestimate the power of children

to influence the purchases parents

make on their behalf and also

amongst the older teenagers, their

own capacity to make purchases. I

think you have a big problem at the

school canteen, because a lot of

jumping food is sold there. We have

had a school canteen policy in

place which has been successful in

changing the kinds of products sold.

That has been rebliblgtd by other

states, Queensland has joined us

and other states are following. But

we have to go beyond the issue of what happens simply at school, we

have to look at what happens at

home and in children's leisure time

in terms of their own purchases. At

the next meeting, we intend to

examine options and bring in those

people responsible for marketing

and advertising and examine their

policies and their proposals, to be

able to deal with this issue. Clear,

advertisers would not be

advertising at two to three times

the rate for adult programs in

children's programs unless they

believed there was success. Of

course, they are achieving success

because we are seeing that in the

raising rates of young people being

overweight and obese. We wish you

luck, bass the problem is getting

worse. Thank you. Part of the

problem, my shrol supermarket, if I

buy breakfast cereal with my kids,

sitting directly opposite is the

confectionery aisle. They are

running ads for chips, and say that

chips are only 100calry, and kids

hear that stuff. Marketes pay for

positioning in the supermarket.

They employ psychologists to work

out where the various items should

be to be most attractive for kids.

Don't just bash parents here I

often wash down my muesli with a

nice cold can of Coke. Thanks for

helping I'm not suggesting kids

should do that. Do not try this at

home! Papers around the country.

The Herald Sun - these an

interesting suggestion that drurpgs,

vandals and people loosely class

fade as louts should be employed to

keen clean up public areas on

Sunday mornings. If you've been

done for vandalism, nuisance or bad

behaviour, they can sentence you to

a Sunday morning clean-up, picking

up cigarette butts, broken bottles,

food wrap wrers and regurgitated

foodstuffs. The guys I drove past

this morning, they were still on

their walk down King's Cross. We

could do a Sunday morning clean-up

here with the papers. It raises the

here with the papers. It raises the

question of what Simon was doing at

King's Cross this morning. Driving

through the cross. It's a real

thorough fare, of course. So I

slept there. In WA, photographs of

victims of domestic violence.

Apparently, one Warne is murdered

by a family member or loved one

every 19 days. Terrible figures,

and many are under the age of 10.

Some children do not reach their

first birthday. It is a sad fact

that most murders and assaults

occur by a family member or someone

involved with the person. You are

involved with white ribbon day,

against domestic violence. Indeed,

all women - a third of all women

will experience violence at the

hands of a partner,ter fig

statistics. On a lighter note, the

Sunday Mail in Brisbane has an

interesting story, all the trains

that they have purchased,

Queensland Rail, are sitting idle

and unused, 80 of them, at Muswell

brook in the Hunter Valley in New

South Wales. During the week, on a

disused line - I am sorry, they are

parked at Muswell brook, but there

is an interesting thing, a

Queensland Rail official is quoted

as saying that drinkers opposite

where the train carriages are

parked had complained about the

glare coming off the carriages, as

you would, and that was the first

he had heard of it. Basically, they

have gone out and tried to cover up

- as if you can - 80 carriages.

What's the name of the artist who

goes around the world? Chris toe

would love that. Very cute.

Bureaucratsy gone mad. Typical that the drinkers were so sensitive to

the glare off the charge carriages.

Did you find that when you were

sitting in the pink pussy cat this morning? Yes.

Ahead this morning, is it too early for a movie about 9/11? We'll find out why some cinemas are refusing to show it. But next, the story of Justin Berry. He'll talk frankly about becoming a porn star at the age of 13.

We often hear about the dangers of the Internet. But one case this week revealed how real they are. Our US correspondent Mike Amor has the story. Mike, good morning. Good morning, Lisa and Andrew. Yes, America has certainly been shocked by this story.

It's not one that's easy to listen

to. A young man is speaking out

after spending his teenage years as

an unwitting on-line porn star. What

is even more frightening is that it

could be happening right now to thousands of other children. Justin Berry was a lonely 13-year-old, so he got a web cam, hoping to connect with friends online. But he never met anyone his own age. Just 10 minutes after posting a photo

he was contacted by an adult predator. Then others swarmed. At first, Justin was offered money to take off his shirt, but eventually the live shows became explicit. As more clothes came off, more people contacted me. The compliments were endless, the gifts and payments terrific. I thought I had achieved online what eluded me in real life.

I was popular. Everyone wanted to know my thoughts, everyone wanted to give me things, I was the king of my own universe. Appearing before a US hearing, Justin is telling his story in the hope others don't fall into the same trap. He admits he was paid by more than 1,000 men to perform sexual acts in what developed into an under-age Internet porn enterprise. He had his own web site,

with a turnover of hundreds of thousands of dollars. One customer even rented him an apartment

so he could continue making videos in secret. I was reckless. Part of me wanted to die. And every day on camera part of me did. One man he accuses of molesting him was subpoenaed to appear. I will decline to respond based on Fifth Amendment privilege. After turning to drugs, Justin eventually quit.

Now he wants to warn parents

and children everywhere. In particular because many children when they are 13 and 14 years of age will be a little exhibitionistic, that's just part of being an adolescent, but it's a little dangerous to be that way online. So dangerous that police are now logging on and posing as minors to entrap offenders. Illinois sergeant, Rick White, enters a chat room and within two minutes, a man claiming to be 25 asks for a picture.

Three minutes later, the conversation turns to sex. He's talking to someone who he believes is a 15-year-old female. These cases aren't isolated. One in five children surveyed by the US Justice Department

reports receiving unwanted sexual solicitations on line. They can be businessmen, they can be schoolteachers,

they can be camp counsellors, they can be sports reporters. They can even be government officials. The US Homeland Security department was rocked this week by news one of its own, Brian Doyle, was caught trying to seduce someone he thought was a 14-year-old girl but was actually a police officer. As the investigation went on, he sent her 16 movie clips of pornography. During those 16 movie clips, as he would download them for her, then he would describe to her or ask her if she would engage in that kind of sexual conduct with him. So what should parents do? Authorities advise - But Justin says that's not enough.

These predators, they're not going to stop. If you arrest them, they're going to go back and find another kid and they're going to keep doing it until they're put away. I hope they get life. Mike, how many arrests have police made over Justin's case?

Justin is actually quite frustrated

by all this. He says he's turned

over to American justice officials

the names of at least 1,500

paedophiles, so far just two

arrests. Hard to believe.

Absolutely. I know there's been

cynicism in some courts about

Justin's plea. There's no doubt

he's been exploited by paedophiles,

but some people are say, where is

all the money he made and why this

sudden change of heart? They are

questioning the role of his father

with good reason. Justin moved into

his father's home in Mexico, in his

late teens, and his father hired

prostitutes to perform with him on

camera. Justin only stopped this

last year at the urging of a New

York Times reporter, so it went on

for quite a while. Terrifying, that

Justin's mother worked with

children who were victims of

molestation, so it goes to show no

parent can rest easy with respect

to kids have access to the Internet.

We were talking last week on the

all stars about having computers in

family rooms and not in bedrooms,

for this reason. We were talking

about the fact that kids are

getting little uninterrupted sleep,

between computers and phones. That

doesn't wake us up to the idea of

not having computers in kids

bedrooms There is no reason for t apart from study. Coming up, how do you get closure after a marriage break-up? Jo Lamble will tackle that during the Counselling Corner. But next, headline news with Simon.

A very big show tomorrow morning. But ahead this morning, the infamous Riley Diary and Nelson Aspen in Hollywood. First, though, a check of the headlines with Simon. Checking news headlines on Weekend Sunrise. The Federal Government has sent a stern warning to boats carrying Papuan asylum seekers. Justice Minister Chris Ellison says it's prepared to force boats back to Indonesia. He's rejected claims forcing a refugee back to a place of persecution is a breach of international laws. War veterans are divided over whether relatives of diggers should march in Anzac Day parades. Some believe the solemn nature of the day is being destroyed because young people dress inappropriately and show no respect for fallen soldiers. And in the AFL the Brisbane Lions have roared back into form with a three goal win over Essendon in Brisbane. Essendon fought hard to stay in contention but Brisbane had too much class in front of a packed Gabba. Weather watch and mainly fine today in Brisbane and that means fine tomorrow for the INXS concert at Dreamworld. Fine too in Sydney and Canberra. Overcast for Hobart and Melbourne but looking good in Adelaide and Perth.

A more comprehensive coverage of

the news at 9.00. Canberra is used to some rather high-profile visits. But this week was extra special. A certain Great Dane made the trip Down Under. Here's the Riley Diary. Canberra is, quite rightly, the centre of the political universe at the moment. We've had visits by the Queen, Tony Blair, and this week, we went walking in lock step with the Chinese Premier and we hailed the Netherlands' main man. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE GOLDMEMBER CLIP: Hi, everybody, I am from Holland. Isn't that dear? Goodness gracious no, not him. Him, the Dutch Prime Minister.

Prime Minister, during 400 years, we are good mates. Australia and the Netherlands share the same values. Indeed we do, but not the same taste in everything. (In a Dutch accent) Flapjack and a cigarette? Hmm? Alright. Cigar and a waffle? No? Pipe and a crepe? No. Bong and a blintz? No? Oh well, then there is no pleasing you. But we do share an interest in fast cars.

The Dutch PM was in Melbourne for last week's grand prix. Which drove our PM to make this rather ocker observation... I know how much as a, we say in Australia, a bit of a petrol head, how much you have enjoyed the grand prix. That means, we like you. We're a very tolerant society here, unlike some. There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures and the Dutch. But seriously, we love the Dutch. We share a long history of association, something our respective PMs marked in Fremantle later in the week when they went to farewell a replica of the first Dutch vessel to chart our shores. Although, there was just a little bit of confusion over the ship's name. I'm going to launch with the Prime Minister of the Netherlands the replica of the Duffken which is going to sail around Australia. Or the Doofken, I think that's the correct Dutch pronunciation. Yes. The Doofken! Not sure that's exactly how they say it. I don't speak freaky-deeky Dutch. Well, this bloke does, and it's more like this. The Duyfken, the little dove. Duyfken, Duyfken, sounds lyrical when they say it. (In a Dutch accent) Yes, I have a Dutch accent. Isn't that weird? Hmm, but look, there's just one final question I want to put to the Prime Minister before we go. You know I'm a sucker for one last question, Mr Riley. Yes, what is it? Well, sir, I was wondering if you wouldn't mind having one more crack at the ship's name for us? To sail the yacht Duyfken on the 1606... There you go. You can, you can do it, very well. Or, to put it another way...

(laughs) And that's the way, uh-ha, uh-ha, I like it.

KC and the Sunshine band. Rest assured that I took careful note of that comment. Um, yes Prime Minister, we're sure you did. KC AND THE SUNSHINE BAND'S "THAT'S THE WAY I LIKE IT" PLAYS # That's the way, uh-huh, uh-huh, I like it, uh-huh, uh-huh #

You must have been up all night working in that graphic at the end.

Well done. I talk full

responsibility for putting KC and

the sunshine band into people's

heads on a Sunday morning. That

that will not leave us now. We love

the Duyfken. It's a lovely looking

ship. What will be keeping the

press gallery chuckling this week?

We will see the sight, the rear

sight, of two ministers going into

the Cole commission this week, Mark

Vaile and Alexander Downer, and

that may focus people's minds. Up

to this stage, the government is

saying that this has not resonated,

that people do not understand what

the wheat bribery scandal is about,

so it's not showing up in polling,

so perhaps it might focus people's

minds seeing the ministers. We wife

and I drove to Sydney yesterday to

go to the royal Easter show, and it

was a terrific day, and a Sunrise

viewer came up and ha had a chat, a

council worker from Sydney. The

only thing he wanted to talk about

was the IR laws. That is a common

thing, it is resonateing in

people's minds, it's not an ab

extraction, it's about their jobs,

their lives and existence. The

wheat scandal is a bit abstract,

but that might bring it home this

week. The wheat scan today could

become about jobs if we lose those

contracts. There is a story, $500

million worth of wheat is a heck of

a lost wheat and it's sitting in

the Australian pool, it could go

elsewhere, but that's a lot of

money. We haven't heard what's

happened finally with the deals.

Remember, Mark Vaile went on the

mission to Baghdad and came back

and said, we've secured a big wheat

deal. Where is it? There is a

question to be asked there. Thanks,

Mark, and no thanks whatsoever for

KC and the sunshine band. That will

not leave our hands. That's the way

I like T have a smoke and a pancake. Go away!

Ahead this morning, Carmen Electra and the cast of Scary Movie Four. That's another Nelson Aspen exclusive. But next, if you've got questions, we've got answers. Jo Lamble's here with our Counselling Corner. DRAMATIC MUSIC OMINOUS MUSIC Uh, your Deli Choices roll, ma'am. while we make your Deli Choices roll at McDonald's McDONALD'S THEME PLAYS

Time now for our Weekend Sunrise Counselling Corner. This is the segment where you can get advice from our experts over the phone. We've been inundated with questions since last week's segment. And in the chair today, Sunrise Psychologist Jo Lamble. Good morning, Jo. Good morning. Now, our first caller is Helen from Gosford in New South Wales. Helen, what's your question for Jo?

My partner of eight years came home

four years ago and just said that

he was unhappy, and two later moved

out of the hourks never ever told

me why. I've never had a chance to

talk to him about it. The only

conversations we ever had were

bitter ones with solicitors in the

settlement of property. After four

years I've still got all those

questions I need answered, but of

course I'm never going to get them

answered. I've been to lots of

counselling and talked to friend,

but I want to know what went wrong.

What's the best way for Helen to

approach this? As you know, the

feelings you experience when

someone leaves you is like grief.

In fact, some people say they would

prefer their partner had died,

rather than made the deliberate

choice to have left. You want to

try not to fall into the role of a

victim. The way to do that is to

accept the fact, which takes time,

it's better to be without someone

who doesn't love you, who is not

committed to you, than to be with

them. That's much harder when you

can't talk to him and get the

answers. Believe me, sometimes it's

harder when you have regular

contact with them and talk to them,

because they can then twist it and

start blaming you for everything

that went wrong, and that can be

worse. We know that limited contact,

especially if there's no children,

often helps people move on faster

than a lingering relationship that

goes on for years. You have to try

to put the unanswered questions to

rest. Sometimes to helps to write a

letter, write everything you've

been feeling and thinking, not to

send it. It can help to shift

emotions. Also, go through your

head alternative things you went

thought weren't right in the

relationship, to remind yourself it

wasn't perfect, and if you're not

committed, you're better off

without him, but it's very hard.

Next is Tania from South Australia.

Recently, my teenage daughter told

me she's pregnant. Obviously I want

to support and help her through

this emotional time. What I'm

finding difficult and confusing is

my role as her mother, in terms of

what I should be doing to help are

her without taking over and

rescuing her. That's got to be the

temptation, you're still feeling

like that's your baby. She is.

Tania, the fact that you've rung in,

shows how much you want to care for

and help her, and that will go so

far in helping her daughter. She

needs help to make the huge

decision of whether on to have the

a baby, and if she decides to

proceed with the pregnancy, there

will be other decision to make. I

suggest you take her to a couple of

sessions of counselling, and get

her to talk about what she's

thinking, does The Know how to make

an informed decision, weighing up

the pros and cons and being aware

of the oxs. You can listen out for

unrealistic expectations, and can

support her and that will help her

through. I'm sure she would be

grateful for any kind of advice.

Knowing her mum is there and wants

to help is everything at a time

like this. It really is. Next is

Jason from Victoria, who wants to

track down his biological father. I

want to know how you approach the

subject, as in the initial contact

of somebody not knowing you exist,

and then 30 years later somebody

approaching you and saying, "I'm

your son." Very tricky. It sound

like you're about to embark on a

significant mission. You want to be

prepared. If you can, ask yourself

what are your motives, know why you're doing this and check your

expectations. Can you imagine how

you will feel if you can't find him,

or if you can find him and he

doesn't want to have contact, or if

he's nothing like you expected, or

he might want to start a

relationship straight away. run

through your mind all the options.

Is it common the biological parent

doesn't want to be involved, having

discovered the connection? Yes. I'm

not an expert on how to find

parents, but write him a letter,

tell him about yourself, your story,

and you think he might be the

biological father, and ask him

whether he wants to have contact

and leave it with him. That would

be a sont ening effect, rather than

knock on the door and seeing the

face after 30 years. Some people

may not want to have contact

straightaway, but I have heard

stories of people writing again a

year or two later when they are

receptive and the idea has sunk in.

If he doesn't respond, he may later.

Thanks, Jason. Thanks for joining

us morning, Joh. And next week, Sunrise parenting expert Michael Carr-Gregg will be in the hot seat. So if you've got questions for him, head to our web site. Ahead this morning, is there a secret to having smarter children? We'll share some new research after 9.00.

I'd find a smart partner, to

balance me out. You invite them

into the) ene pool. But next, we're off to the flicks. Nelson Aspen meets the very funny cast of 'Scary Movie 4'.

They answered the call for help.

They made a real difference to people in need. Their personal sacrifices inspired us all. Happy birthday, Laura. I miss you heaps. Love you to death. Now it's time to say thank you. We're joining forces with INXS to honour our volunteer tradies from Operation Sunrise. This Monday, join the team live from Dreamworld for a thank you concert with a difference.

JD Fortune and the boys will perform no less than four songs. Find out why they're again been called one of the world's super bands. The Sunrise Thank You Concert proudly brought to you by Dreamworld on the Gold Coast, and Visa Entertainment. A truly special event, Monday on Sunrise. # Living in your afterglow Well, grab your popcorn and sit back, it's movie time. And this week, you're in for a laugh. The 'Scary Movie' franchise is back. And so are all the celebrity cameos. Our Hollywood Correspondent Nelson Aspen caught up with the cast of the fourth instalment. Nelson, good morning. How was it? Good morning, Lisa and Andrew. This film definitely borders on the ridiculous, or maybe you should just say just the silly, that's for sure. But fans of the Scary Movie genre wouldn't have it any other way. Hollywood has its blockbusters, and then it has its spoofs. FILM CLIP: # Karma Karma Karma Karma Karma Chameleon # Noooo! SCREAMS If you think you've seen this all before, you probably have. No fewer than 15 different films are spoofed in Scary Movie 4. There are things going on in this house. I can't shake this feeling of evil. Gorgeous, funny, talented. Me? Oh, yes, you. I thought we were talking about you. Enough about me, let's get back to you. Anna Faris is back to reprise her role. You said you love Australia. I do. Tell me, what's your experience with the land down under? I backpacked up and down the east coast, had the best time of my life, loved the people, the countryside.

I got leeches on me. It was great. Fabulous, sexy. Yes, so sexy. One cast member who really does have sexy memories of Australia is Carmen Electra. MARVIN GAYE'S "SEXUAL HEALING" PLAYS I was in Australia promoting my aerobics striptease DVD, which is so cool because I heard that it was sold out for a while in Australia after that. You had an effect on Kochie, he hasn't been able to keep his clothes on since. I think he keeps playing it over and over. We had fun. We had a good time that day. Shall we have a foot race? No cheating. It's pretty outrageous. I mean, it's really taking it to the next level. And I was a little scared at first, but it's worth it. Craig Bierko parodies the classic leading man, guess who? Tom Ryan! I love Cindy Campbell, I could jump on things. Whoa! He has lost it. Wow-ee, wow-ee. Tom Ryan is insane. I'm insane. (screams in pain) Are you expecting any repercussions from the Cruise camp? You want to make sure that the person that you're kind of having one on with also can. I wouldn't want to be part of something where somebody was in a great deal of pain or something, because why would you want to attack somebody like that? It's shooting fish in a barrel, for one thing, it's also not funny. And Regina Hall rounds out the cast as the off-beat best friend Brenda. He will rise in terrible aggony. Hey, Cindy, Look, I'm on TV y'all. Check it out. I want to give a shout out to all my peeps. Have you lost your mind? What makes you laugh? When I look at Lesley Neilsen and think about Bush, I laugh. A girl had a pet duck. Mr President, the planet is under attack by aliens. I'll handle that in a minute. Right now, I want to see what happens with the duck. More people will die. You mean right now all of these children's parents could be dead? Remember to sign that abortion bill? So, you guys, seriously, you will laugh out loud.

You might not want to, but you can't help it. And Kochie is not the only one with a connection. He's got the Carmen Electra thing - Craig Bierko used to be my aerobics student. You see, everything that goes around comes around. Hollywood is still a very small town. That's all for now. Thanks, Lisa and Andrew. Looks that way. Thanks, Nelson.

That's hilarious. I love Lesley

Neilsen, he just gets it every time.

Apparently Dr Phil makes a guest

appearance in that as well, I think

the real one, as opposed to that

pseudo Oprah we saw with the broken

hand. Doing cart wheels across the

set. Scary Movie 4 pops this Thursday. Plenty on the way this morning, including the bad behaviour of our pollies. We'll ask why can't they just learn some manners? Also ahead, how drivers can get even with money-hungry oil companies. But next, Sunday's news and weather. You're watching Weekend Sunrise, on the Seven Network.

# Get up, move Get-get up, move Toyota HiLux 4x2 action utility vehicle

you'll be counting down every second till the weekend. # Get-get up... #

Veil Jean pit any, that was very

sad . So many songs to keep in my head this morning. Can you believe it's almost five years since the 9/11 attacks on America? I guess it was always inevitable for movies to be made about such a world-changing event. But the first such film is facing tough opposition, especially in the United States. In fact, many cinemas are already refusing to show it. So is it too soon? Would you go to see it? We'll seek some views on that shortly. Also coming up, deja vu at the petrol bowser. Prices are again soaring. And surprise, surprise, Easter is fast approaching.

We'll ask an expert in just a few minutes. And do women who have children later in life end up with smarter kids? We'll get into that debate as well. But right now, it's news time. Here's Simon. Good morning. The Federal Government has sent an explicit warning to boats carrying Papuan asylum seekers. It's prepared to force them back to Indonesia. Justice Minister Chris Ellison says certain circumstances could result in sending boats back the way they came. He's rejected claims forcing a refugee back to a place of persecution is a breach of international laws. Heated debate is raging over whether families are ruining Anzac Day parades. Some veterans are worried their solemn nature has been destroyed since relatives began marching three years ago. The Victorian RSL chief says a lot of young people are poorly dressed and show no respect to fallen soldiers. But the New South Wales RSL president says

families should be encouraged to march. Don Rowe says many World War II veterans will soon be aged in their 90s and if descendants don't march, one day no-one will. A senior officer with the Australian Federal Police

Two policemen have spoken for the first time about their decision not to shoot Port Arthur killer Martin Bryant. News Limited newspapers report

former officers Michael Hayes and Jim Morrison had Bryant in their gun sights

during the siege at a Tasmanian cottage. Bryant had already killed 35 people. Mr Hayes admits shooting Bryant would've been a quick, easy fix. But he says that's not what police are trained to do and they can't operate with a revenge mentality. A 14-year-old boy is in hospital

A senior officer with the Australian Federal Police

has been suspended for consulting a clairvoyant over a death threat against the Prime Minister. disclosed classified information The policeman is reported to have to the small town psychic. It apparently came in desperation after investigations hit a dead end. The Federal Police say

they don't condone the use of psychics in security matters. A 14-year-old boy is in hospital after being bashed and stabbed in an unprovoked attack on the Gold Coast.

Police say the boy got off a bus with a friend and was walking to a movie cinema when he was confronted by three men.

The teenager wa s repeatedly kicked and punched and stabbed in the stomach. His friend ran to get security guards to help but the men had run away. The State Government says advertising is a big factor in our children's high obesity rates. The New South Wales State Government has implemented a taskforce on the increased junk food consumption. Health Minister John Hatzistergos believes that children are being targeted by advertisers. The extent of advertising done in children's programs is two to three times the rate of that in adult programs. The taskforce recommendations are expected to be announced at the health ministers' meeting in August. The New South Wales Roads Minister has been caught on camera breaking the law. Eric Roozendaal was photographed in a ministerial car driven by a minder sliding past peak-hour traffic in a bus-only lane. The offence carries a $225 fine and the loss of three demerit points. A spokesperson says Mr Roozendaal was unaware of the incident because he usually reads Cabinet papers on the way to work. The Minister has accepted responsibility and will pay the fine. Play has resumed in the US Masters after a 4.5-hour rain delay. 31-year-old Chad Campbell leads the tournament at 6 under. Vijay Singh is in a group of three, three shots off the pace. Nick O'Hern is the best-placed Australian at one under. To sport now and the Brisbane Lions have rediscovered their roar with a three-goal win over Essendon. In other games, Fremantle secured a win against Carlton while Geelong and the Bulldogs continued their early season form.

The Bombers' efficiency in front of goal kept them in the contest but the Lions dominance eventually proved too much.

COMMENTATOR: Puts the foot down, Luke Power. Oh, he did that so well the Gabba on it's feet. In Rugby League,

injuries have put a dampener on wins for the Roosters and Broncos. the Sharks by just four points in a thriller. Brisbane easily defeated South Sydney while Newcastle hammered the Dragons. Roosters centre Ryan Cross seriously strained his ankle while back-rower Shane Shackleton suffered a shoulder injury. The Broncos will have to do without Michael Ennis for the rest of the season. The hooker is out with a knee injury. In Super 14 Rugby, the ACT Brumbies have scored convincing win over the Cheetahs 53-20. In other games, the Western Force are still winless after going down by three to the Highlanders. The Queensland Reds beat the Cats in Johannesburg. The Bulls and the Chiefs drew 26-26 and the Blues defeated the Stormers. The Brumbies' victory against the Cheetahs was the perfect warm up for their big grudge match against the Waratahs next weekend. Australia's Matt Welsh has won two gold medals at the world short course swimming championships in China. Welsh finished first in the 50m backstroke and butterfly events. The Netherlands smashed the world record in the women's 4 by 100m freestyle relay. Australia finished second. Australia will play Belarus at Kooyong in the Davis Cup today but the games will be little more than match practice. The reverse singles will be dead rubbers

after Australia won the tie with a 3-0 clean sweep. They've made the semi-finals and will play either defending champion Croatia or Argentina. Now to Sunday's weather. Showers and storms in Far North Queensland. And taking a look at the two-day forecast - Brisbane should stay fine and warm. Similar conditions expected in Sydney. Sunny in the national capital. There's a chance of a shower for Hobart on Tuesday. Melbourne will remain mild and overcast. There could be rain in Adelaide over the next couple of days. No real change expected in Perth. The outlook for Darwin is showers from tomorrow. That's it for now. I'll be back shortly.

That's the way I like it. Where's

you're caip and your cigar.

Breaking news, Barney's third

birthday, happy birthday. Hope you

enjoy that. Isn't Santa bringing

the presents? Barney is my son,

he's convinced Santa is bringing

his birthday present. With this

outfit, I could do the job, just

need the beard and nose. Why is it that every time holidays like Easter come along, petrol prices soar? In some places, it's already costing as much as $1.40 a litre. So what can be done?

David Cumming is from the RACV. Good morning to you.

How high is the petrol price

expected to go? It will peak higher

in the coming week than last week,

because there was a 2 cent

wholesale price last Friday.

Wherever you are in a capital city

or the country, it will peak at 2

cents high yes, most capital cities

will be around $1.38 and many

country towns over $1.40, pretty

sairy stuff That's amazing.

Companies are saying it has to do

with the world oil price, but they

have been accused of profit earing

traditionally in the lead-up to's

Easter. What is the real cause of

the rise? It is very complicated.

It used to be very simple to

explain what's going on in the

world, but at this minute there is

a set of circumstances occurring

around the world that we have never

seen before. Last week, the Iraqi

Minister said supply is equalling

demand, so what's the problem. It

is put down to a geopolitical

answer, that people are worrying

about Iran, they may have sanctions

against them, therefore their oil

supply will increase, there are

problems in Nigeria and Iraq, there

is insufficient oil coming oust

Iraq, so the traders are nervous,

and the price of oil is going up

and the Australian dollar is taking

a dip. These are circumstances we

have never seen before. What needs

to be done to get the prices back

down to a manageable level? We need

the Australian dollar to rebound

more than it has and we need to see

the oil industry invest. We need

more refineries to come on stream

so there is not a huge problem with

the fear of under-supply. There is

a problem with the emergence of

China, which is the second largest

oil importing nation in the world

behind America. 10 years ago that

was unheard. We need investment.

There are seven huge oilfields in

Iraq and only two are being pumped.

They are pumping less oil today

than they were prior to the

so-called liberation of Iraq. We

have to move away from the

dependence of oil, the countries

that control the oil are too

unstable. As soon as we move to alternatives such as coal to lick

West Indies and gas, the better. I

couldn't agree more with that, even

the simple biodiesel solutions seem

to be more effective than relying

on oil. There is also the tax on

oil excise, so you have a tax on a

tax. Do you want to get me started

on that? Can you believe how

disgrisful that is! You have GST on

top of an excise. If they change

the formula this very minute,

overnight the price of petrol would

drop by 3.4 cents per litre. The

tax is so unfair. I have been

fighting on this issue for about

two years. I know the government is

sick of me saying t but I will

continue to say it until I end up

in the grave. The Prime Minister

has asked. ACCC to look at petrol

price, yet everything we know about

the ACCC, it appears that they have

absolutely no teeth whatsoever to

have any influence over the price

of petrol. Nobody can look at the

books of the oil companies, for a

start. The ACCC has no threw over

petrol prices. They can look for

collusion and if they can prove it,

that would be fantastic. At the end

of the day, we all understand the

formula for setting the price of

petrol. It's based on the import

parity price of refined product out

of Inc. spore, plus shipping cost,

insurance, etc.. It is very well

understood. At the moment, you

might think you're being ripped off,

but this is a world parity price.

We cannot be immune from a world

parity price, as simple as that. If

the government tried to control the

oil industry and said we want you

to sell in into this market at less

than you can get overseas, they

will just export it. We do not have

enough oil and we work on the just

in time formula in relation to

getting fuel into the country, so

we are vulnerable and we have to be

careful not to fiddle with the

world parity price. I guess we will

have to shop around to get the best

price. And keep your shopper dockets Thank you, David. Soon on the show, the truly special Bruce MacAvaney. He'll preview today's action from Kooyong. But next, it was the event that shook the world. So is it too soon for a movie about 9/11?

It hasn't even hit the big screen yet, but controversy already surrounds the movie 'United 93'. It's the first feature film to deal with the events of September 11. Take a quick look.

(Shouts) We have a plane headed

towards the capital. May we engage,

sir? We have to do it now because

we know what happens if we just sit here and do nothing.

It's certainly powerful. So much so, that the trailer has been pulled from some theatres in New York. So is it too soon?

Let's ask our Weekend All Stars. Glenn Wheeler from Radio 2UE and Social commentator Rebecca Le Tourneau. Good morning to you both. Rebecca, historic events have been recreated on film before. Why is 'United 93' causing such a stir?

When I first heard about it - and I

heard about people crying in the

movie theatre and calling out, "Too

sown, too soon -" I immediately

thought, this is too soon, that's a

terrible thing. But that was in New

York, where people had been closest

to the September 11 events. When I

looked at it further, the people

who made the movie asked the

permission of every family member

of people who had been killed on

board and got that permission from

every family, so the film must

integrity to get that. Also, there

has been a cable movie shown on

exactly the same subject, which

brought 5.9 million viewers. If you

look at it in terms of the people deciding what they will and won't

watch, it would seem it's not too

soon. These days, we don't read as

many books and take on history the

same way. Movies are one way of us

reflecting and resume nighting on

and thinking about our had history.

This was a major event in our

history. It's only one group of

people's version of this event.

It's a likely story. These people

were heros, they made a decision

not to allow the plane to crash

into the Pentagon. In terms of

whether the movie should be

released, look back at the series

of earthquake movies and airport

movies. But a earthquake is a

natural event. It is, but what

about airport, hijacked air plans,

we ran four or five on that, what

about the towering inferno, and the

shark attack, jaws, nobody said,

should we be running

should we be running the movie. It

is an awful event, but it is the

way our world has developed. Isn't

the question not the time lapse but

the sensitiveity and accuracy with

which the vaens are played? I don't

think that enters into it, because

in our commercial world a group of

people have decided to sink money

into it, Oliver stone has another movie

movie called the World Trade Center,

staring Nicolas Cage, and I agree

with you, Rebecca, which is unusual,

but I think people will vote at the

box office and decide they want to

see it or don't want to see it. It

took 60 years for the Hitler film

to come out. It did, and also the

Titanic, but if it's handled with

Titanic, but if it's handled with

sinisterity and shows what heros

the people were, people will be

happy to watch it. I think for

anybody who lost someone in

September 11, walking past a bill

board, saying, spend your $15 on

the death of my loved one, it would

be hard to take. Let's change focus.

New South Wales roads minister has

apologised after giving a female MP

the bird in parliament. There it is.

There they are, beating each other

up again. Caught in the bus lane

and flicking the bird, all in one

week. This is reality television.

It's not the first time politicians

have behaved badly in parliament,

the drunken episode from Andrew

Barton. What does it say about our

pollies? I don't know what the

hoo-ha is all about. I feel sorry

for Eric. He's a labour Minister in

a New South Wales Government that

has any number of issues at the

moment. This poor bloke has been

handed the biggest poison chalice,

he's now the Minister for roads. He

must have been could youering when

the premier said, I have to found a

new Minister for roads (Cowering).

Did ums, he chose to be a

politician and address got a bit

tough. I'm horrified to hear you

say that. For any parent sitting

there, I can see myself saying,

"Yes, spike, I want you to be like

him, that guy over there strangling somebody, swearing at them or

sticking up his finger." Is a pole

tigs up there - If this were

happening in any other workplace, I

would have been sacked. Only if he

called somebody darling or

sweetheart. You talk about it being

a tough job. These people sit for

30 days a year. It's got to be the

easiest job you could have. That's

easy for you to say. Raising that

finger would have been one of the

biggest things he did that week.

One term and they get a pension for

life. These people should be

working, not mucking around like a playground. That he is their

playground, the bell rings, they

come out, stick it on each other,

then go back into the office. He

might have been voting on the

motion, I second that. Two birds. A

new study suggests women who have

babies later in life will end up

with smarter children. Do you think

this research has any legs? I think

this is another mastermind by the

federal government. I think they

have gone into the bunker and said,

we need to solve the child care

problem, how can we do it? Let's

come up with research to stop

people having children, gives us

breathing space, so the squeeze on

child care will drop away for 10 or

15 years, because people will look

at the research and say, we should

be having children later in life,

so we will ease up the child care

and pick it up in 2015. What about

having one for mum, one for dad and

one for the country? This is

useless research that takes us

nowhere. People who think that

having one child, if they have one,

it will ab smart one. I have met

24tkwrold women with three children

ondo a great job and 48-year-old

women who have one and do a rotter

job. It's about looking after your

child. Thank you, as always. Up soon, Kochie and Nat drop by for a chat. And we'll cross live to Bruce MacAvaney at Kooyong. You're watching Weekend Sunrise, right across Australia.

Morning, everyone. Hope you're having a good Sunday morning. We have a huge week lined up for you on Sunrise. Huge. Huge! And we have stars in our eyes.

Tomorrow is a big one. We are broadcasting live from Dreamworld. My favourite band, INXS, will perform four songs, as a thank you concert to our Operation Sunrise tradies. It's going to be massive, and you'll see it on the telly. We'll also have an exclusive interview with Ashlee Simpson. She's the younger sister of Jessica Simpson, and a chart-topping singer in her own right. You'll see her on Wednesday's show. Singer Jamie Cullum will also be in. He's one of our favourite British performers. He sings, he writes, he plays the piano, and he's on Thursday's show to do all of those things incredibly well. Yeah, he's great. We'll also have one of the stars of Mission Impossible III. And we'll welcome back Mel from Mongolia. Plus on Friday we'll farewell Kochie - oh, it's a busy week - as he embarks on the trip of a life-time to walk the Kokoda track. We'll miss you. Don't get too sad and emotional about it. I can't wait for that. And I can't wait for you to join us this week. Andrew and Lisa, see you tomorrow morning from Dreamworld. And of course tonight, 6:30, for "Where Are They Now?" That's coming up tonight and tomorrow.

My entire week's viewing covered

That looked dazzling, great dress. And this morning, Seven has coverage of all the Davis Cup action. Our sporting guru Bruce McAvaney will be hosting from Kooyong. Good morning, Bruce. What's coming up today?

Andrew, Lisa, how are you going? We

have the reverse singles coming up.

Wayne Arthurs and Chris guech yony

are behind me, and we hope to make

it 5-0. What's happening with

Lleyton Hewitt? He played well on

Friday. He's had not a spectacular

start to the year but a solid one.

Coming back for the Davis Cup, the

timing is right. He's a hubby and a

father, but tennis is still his

priority, I think he'll have a good

year. Are the crowds still behind

him? They are, Andrew. The crowd

was terrific on Friday. I wasn't

here yesterday, I was at the races

for the Golden Slipper, but Lleyton

had huge support on Friday. I think

he is popular and I think the whole

Bec and Lleyton thing captures a

lot of people's imagination. I'm

sure people are still behind him A

few emails on jumping food. Eileen

is saying, it's one thing to cat

out the jumping food , but look at

the school curriculum, currently

there's only one hour a week. We

used to play a lot more sport. Get

them playing two or three days a

week after school for a couple of

hours. We ate jumping food but we

weren't obese. You were running it

O and you weren't spending time

sitting at computers after school

That's right. Chris says, there's a

couple of hours after school, with

working parents, where kids are

unsupervised, so kids are buying

jumping food on the way home from

school. We showed you the clip from

the September 11 movie. A lot of

people not happy with that, not

surprisingly. Michelle from

Queensland says, it will a
