Organisers of the ARIA music awards say they're saddened to learn country music star Keith Urban won't be at the ceremony. Keith checked himself into a rehabilitation centre after admitting he had let his guard down while battling alcoholism. Wife Nicole Kidman was also due to attend the ARIAs this week but is staying by Urban's side in the US. And that also means Keith's Sunrise performance scheduled for Tuesday will now be postponed. And now with sport, here's Kylie Gillies. Australia has scored a come-from-behind win over New Zealand in the Tri-Nations Rugby League match in Melbourne. The Kangaroos won 20-15 after two late tries in the final five minutes. The Kiwis were fired up after a passionate haka, and scored first. They looked like taking the match until this superb try from rising star Greg Inglis. COMMENTATOR: Away goes Inglis.

Waite getting across.

Look at him go! Greg Inglis is gonna get there. That is super play, yet again. Mark Gasnier scored the winning try two minutes from full-time. Tawqueet is the new favourite to win the Melbourne Cup after a daring victory in the Caulfield Cup yesterday. But Tawqueet is facing a 2kg penalty for the November 7 race. Racing Victoria will announce the re-handicap tomorrow. Australia's Will Power will start from pole for today's Indy 300, on the Gold Coast. The rookie Queenslander will share the front row with Frenchman Sebastien Bourdais on the streets of Surfers Paradise. The 25-year-old made his Champ Car debut on this course last year. over England Australia's had a convincing win in the Champions Trophy.

The Aussies bowled England out for 169, in 45 overs.

with captain Ricky Ponting out for one. A 118-run partnership from Damien Martyn and Mike Hussey and steered the Aussies to victory. Just good to get a good solid win under our belt. It was a good comprehensive win tonight and we should take a lot of confidence from that, going forward. Australia's next game is against hosts India in a week's time. In the A-League, Sydney has lost its first home game in more than a year. Melbourne took the match 2-1, in Sydney. Sydney's Steve Corica netted a goal in the eighth minute. Melbourne didn't score until early in the second half. Striker Archie Thompson then sealed the match in the 73rd minute with his second of the night.

In NBL action overnight, The Kings were dominant from the outset before eventually recording their biggest ever win over West Sydney. The 43-point margin was also the highest score in the league this season.

Melbourne and Adelaide, both mostly fine. Early drizzle here in Perth and 24 degrees. And looking further ahead, showers persisting in Brisbane tomorrow. Fine and mostly sunny in Sydney over the next couple of days.

Fine in Canberra. Hobart, fine tomorrow, with some late showers on Tuesday. Melbourne should be fine tomorrow before a late change on Tuesday. Possible showers in Adelaide. Fine conditions in Perth. Darwin, mostly sunny and 33 through mid week.

If you're one of those people who

have not lucky enough to have the

papers delivered to your house, we

will do a quick whip around. And News Limited papers, including Perth's 'Sunday Times', are running world exclusive pictures of Beaconsfield mine survivors Todd Russell and Brant Webb.

These are the first photographs of the pair trapped a kilometre underground. They were taken with a camera that was pushed through a supply pipe, five days into their ordeal. It would take authorities another nine days to rescue Todd and Brant. They've now both returned to work. Todd as a mining consultant, Brant as a boat salesman.

And the pictures are fantastic.

Amazing to look at. The definition

of up close and personal. Yeah,

really Truly? It gives an indication

of just how close it was for them.

Yes, despite sharing quite different complexions, Alicia and Jasmine are indeed twins. They were born in Caboolture in May. Mum says she couldn't quite believe it. They were conceived naturally and experts believe the chance of having twins with such vastly different physical characteristics is about 1 million to one.

Extraordinary. Incredible. Pin ups

for all campaigns around the world.

I think they have a Benneton

contract sewn up. I think the dad is

Jamaican heritage and the mum is German. And Melbourne's 'Sunday Age' has a story about the silly season. Even though it isn't for over two months, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Melbourne. The big Christmas tree went up yesterday in the city square.

Some would say a little early, although the retailers would probably beg to differ.

What do you reckon? Middle of

Melbourne, they think let's get the old Christmas old Christmas tree up and get early. I'm old Christmas tree up and get in

Moving on, Well, it's expected to attract world leaders like George W. Bush and Vladamir Putin. But is Australia ready to host APEC? A new report says No. It's raised serious concerns about the ability of police

to handle a major security threat at the 2007 meeting. So what needs to be done? Some are suggesting we send in the army. But is that the answer? Joining us from Canberra is Neil James from the Australia Defence Association. And from Sydney, security expert Tony Loughran. Good morning to you both. Tony, we'll start with you, do you agree with the report? Are police ready to cope with something as big as APEC?

I think the report actually mentions

quite a few interesting points. I

agree with norm Hazzard's particular

approach because he is well equiped

to offer such a comment. There are

areas that are wonting. The command

and control structure is one of

them, quipment and training is

another. There are gaps in this

particular system at the moment. Are

people being speaking about

people being speaking about bringing

in the army, is it a feasible

option? The defence force is already

but people calling for the

but people calling for the army need

to read the constitution. This is a

commrx area of law and there is no

way any one agency can do it. The

law enforcement in Australia must

all-be the civil police. The but the

report suggests New South Wales

police aren't ready and current resources are resources are wonting, so resources are wonting, so what needs

to be done? APEC is 12 months away.

If there are problems, 93 will sort

them out. The commonwealth

government is not going to host it

government is not going to host it without the police being ready.

People with are worrying about

nothing at this stage mfrn 12 months

away, sure, but do you think the

police can make up some ground

before the summit goes ahead? I

think they are going to have to. If

you look at the pictures just

you look at the pictures just trying

to cop with the Cronulla lits,

flash point. We are talking about

protests. Are we going to be protests. Are we going to be able

deal with it? We are talking bout

the biggest meeting of world leaders

we have seen before and the biggest

security problem we will ever face.

I think it's very much

I think it's very much doubtful at

this stage. There need to be serious

discussions about the command

discussions about the command and

control structure. This is where the

breaks down, the way breaks down, the way the police try

to maintain a line and look at the

protesters. I think that is the

serious type of activity we mead to

look at. Tony, apart from increasing

numbers of police, what are the

other steps that organisers of

other steps that organisers of such e srepts would be looking to take?

We need to look at the way the

In a moment, a moving Riley Diary. But now, let's check the headlines with Simon. Good morning again, everyone. Four men aged in their late teens have been killed in a car crash near Byron Bay. Their Holden Commodore hit several trees and ran into an embankment after veering off the Coast Road near Broken Head. The driver suffered minor injuries. Police are investigating whether a fire in a Sydney unit complex was started in a secret drug lab.

40 residents were forced to evacuate their homes as the blaze took control in the top-story unit. Authorities will see whether the building suffered any structural damage, today.

And organisers of the ARIA awards and all of us here at Sunrise are saddened by the fact Keith Urban won't be making special appearances down-under. The country music star and husband of Nicole Kidman checked into rehab for alcohol abuse. And making sports headlines this morning, Australia has won game two of the Tri-Nations Rugby League in Melbourne the Aussies scored two tries in the dying minutes of the match, to win 20-15. Australia now has a week off before meeting Great Britain in Sydney on November 4. Australia's cricketers are all smiling this morning. They beat England by six wickets at the Champions Trophy overnight. Mike Hussey and Damien Martyn shared a 118-run partnership to guide the Aussies home. And Queensland's Will Power will start from pole in today's Indy 300 on the Gold Coast. The Aussie shares the front row with Frenchman Sebastien Bourdais. Weatherwatch this Sunday. A shower or two down the east coast. Mostly fine in Hobart and Adelaide. Some early drizzle here in the golden west.

Nothing will put a dampener on the

Telethon will it? No, continues

until tonight. Nothing can. We'll have more news and sport at 9 o'clock. The Sunrise Cool the Globe campaign has certainly gained momentum.

During Friday's show, the petition cracked the magic 100,000 signature mark. And this week, we learned first hand the consequences of global warming. The big dry leads the Riley Diary. This week, a dry economic argument about the drought caused a flood of controversy. Look, I think it's that time some farmers gave up. Economist Clive Hamilton said the Government should stop raining money on some farms

in the hardest hit areas. There's no doubt that some of these farms on marginal lands simply can't be sustained in the long term, so we should be cutting our losses. That drew a typically blunt response from one of the Parliament's resident farmers, Bill Heffernan. on the radio there I just heard Clive Hamilton

and I thought he was, as it were, speaking out his back passage.

Bruce Scott, another parliamentary cocky, cultivated a familiar line. And I think it's very unAustralian. behind So we left the pollie-waffle

and headed bush to see for ourselves, asking farmers like Pat Kennedy what the outlook was like for them. Ah... (speaks emotionally) ..it's pretty grim, mate. Pat's an irrigator. His dam can hold 800 mega litres of water. At the moment, it would be lucky to fill a couple of buckets. And he has just got a water licence bill for $71,000 from the New South Wales Government for water he'll never get. We laid it on the line and, um, yeah, we got four young kids and... Tim and Lindy Moon's family have been farming their property for four generations and they have never seen drought like this. My husband walks out the door every morning and comes back in at night-time, well after six o'clock, not earning a cent for the last five years.

So if it finished tomorrow,

it would take five years to get back on where you were.

So that's 10 years of your life gone. The drought has been going has been alive. for as long as little James Moon MARK RILEY: Do you want to be a farmer? Nuh. Local Member and federal minister, John Cobb was knocked for 6. Kaoult You know to say that they don't want want to be farmers themselves,

Kaoutd it's just - I have never - I don't think I have ever heard that before. But he had a haymaker of a response to those suggestions that farmers should be forced to leave. They may as well as go out and practice rural genocide as try to tell those people they shouldn't be there.

As for Pat Kennedy - We're not asking for, you know, free handouts. All we're asking for is a bit of help, financial help, to get through (sniffs) and we want to pay all those loans back so we're not bludgers. Moving stories of genuine hardship. You know, helping people like that should be what politics is all about. Now, Kim Beazley needed help of another variety this week when he went to Adelaide to give a speech

and the South Australian branch of the ALP decided

to throw out all journalists who weren't union members. Barricades went up, and some less-than-subtle censorship was employed as Kim Beazley delivered his speech while journalists there to cover it waited outside. The Premier was unrepentant.

And if you joined the union, then you'd be allowed in.

Mr Beazley later spoke to the locked-out media in a nearby park and copped this question. WOMAN: Do the unions still control the Labor Party? No. Surely you wouldn't support the black-banning of people who... We stand shoulder to shoulder. The Government had a field day. It's no ticket, no start, Mr Speaker. And because the Leader of the Opposition won't stand up to it, for him it's no ticker, no start.

We now have a definitive Labor answer to that old riddle: Why did the chicken cross the road? To do his door-stop in the car park. While a couple of roosters, Stephen Smith and Wayne Swann, laid low for once, dodging the usual morning media stop outside parliament. This is the day that will go down in parliamentary history, Mr Speaker, as the morning which the roosters failed to crow because they weren't there, Mr Speaker. By week's end, the ban was gone and the roosters were back at the morning door stop. I rarely come out every day, regularly. That had everyone in stitches, but no-one laughed harder than that bloke over his shoulder - he's his media advisor. ROOSTER CROWS

But it looks like the last laugh

went to Mark Riley as always. Why would Labor do that?

It is an arcane rule, when I was

covering the trades hall in the 80s. I was

I was standing outside while they

decided if the journalists would

come in and then a nel fellow would

come to the door and say if you have

a card you can come in. The South

Australian Labor Party is the last

to enforce it. On Thursday they

dumped it. So

When they think about it, they will be pleased about that. On the drought, heartbreaking drought, heartbreaking stories.

Because he has no interest to. He's visited an old gal pal

and one man who tries to avoid apple pie. Nelson, good morning to you. Xaout Oh good morning guys. And Happy Telethon to everybody down there in the golden west. I hope it's going very very well. This week I've caught up with Jason Biggs and my friend Eva Longoria. But let me tell you, it was one hot day in LA! You idiot, stop your truck. Stop your truck. Stop!

Stop your dam truck! Cut. (laughs) We often chat to stars after a film's been made. But this time we've decided to talk to them while they're making one. And I've crashed the set. It's the hottest day of the year in LA, but when Eva Longoria invites you to a wedding - you go! Of course,

most of us know Eva Longoria as a desperate housewife with a wandering eye.

That sounds like a date. Yeah. Well,

I have are a problem with you seeing I have are a problem with you seein

other girls? I have a problem with you sl having a husband. But now, she's making the transition to film. First, 'The Sentinel'...

That is not sexy. No. ..and now this -

'How I Met My Boyfriend's Dead Fiancee' and I'm the dead financee. That's an interesting title. But it's an interesting story, too. Eva plays a ghost, trying to sabotage her former boyfriend's current relationship.

Follow that? Because I'm dead, I get to float and I get to use different voices and I try to do a lot of things to sabotage the relationship. Today we're shooting birds attacking Lake Bell. WHISTLE BLOWS Who could forget Jason Biggs from 'American Pie'?

It's not what it looks like. I was

just trying to get him off. Lake Bell made a name for herself as a lawyer on 'Boston Legal'.

We picked the opportunity for you to

meet him then you order appetisers,

allow him to believe you are anyone

at all but the defendant's lawyer. In this movie, they play catering partners. Tell them what's really going on. OK? I will. I am the real star of this movie. OK. Let me just sound-block you. Let's call a spade a spade.

Seems like he is in a bad mood.

Could the Do you know why? Why? Because the trailer's a half mile from here. My trailer should be right here. Do you have any idea how well loved you are in Australia? Yes, I was there. And was it like a mob scene, but in a kind way. I was in China and it was kind of fanatical but Australians were so kind, so gracious.

I was only there for one day for the Melbourne Cup. So I really want to go back there and spend like more time. What kind of wedding do you want for yourself?

I don't know. Depends where I'm at and when I'm asked.

You haven't been asked? Tony hasn't asked? No, because we're both big believers in the short engagement. Well, while Eva may not be getting married in real life any time soon, she definitely makes any wedding very cool. Ah, yes - it was sweltering.

I felt like I should have had a

personal shader following me around.

I don't know if it would have

helped. But, gee, Eva works hard. She's shooting 'Desperate Housewives' during the week

and this film on the weekends. But then, don't we all work on weekends?

What's so hard about that. Forget

it. Forget her! Lisa and Andrew, have a wonderful Telethon.

I tell you what, Eva Longoria, was

here for 24 hours, she does good Cup

frock. She was literally just off

the plane when she looked like that.

She is very per- persebtive. With I

Also ahead, Keith Urban's the latest casualty. We'll look at why celebrities fall victim to substance abuse. Plus, we'll have the next episode in our Dare to Dance series. Right now though, it's time for the latest news with Simon Reeve. Good morning again, Simon. Good morning again. A man's now been charged with trying to abduct two women on Queensland's Gold Coast.

A 20-year-old woman was dragged into a car at Southport after she finished work yesterday afternoon. She escaped at traffic lights a kilometre up the road. Police believe the same man then attacked a 45-year-old woman at another shopping centre. She ran to her car and sounded the horn, forcing the attacker to flee. Queensland Police arrested a man in connection with the crimes overnight. He'll face court tomorrow. Four teenagers have been killed after their car crashed off a country road in northern NSW. Their Holden Commodore hit several trees and an embankment after running off the road near Byron Bay. The driver suffered minor injuries and was taken to hospital for treatment. The road was closed between Lennox Head and the accident scene. it's too early to panic Defence experts say

about whether Australia is ready to host the APEC summit. There are concerns NSW Police aren't prepared for world leaders in Sydney next year. You know, if there's a few problems in the NSW police force, no doubt they'll sort them out. It's not as if the Federal Government is going to host the APEC summit without the NSW police being ready. People are worrying over nothing at this stage. Concerns were raised after a report into the Cronulla riots questioned the ability of police to cope with outbreaks of violence. Investigators haven't ruled out a drug link in an overnight unit fire in Sydney. The blaze destroyed a top-storey apartment in the Waverley block and quickly spread to the building's roof. An adjoining unit was also damaged. 40 people were evacuated from their apartments. Residents will find out today whether they can return to their homes. We're going to examine the structural integrity of the building and work it out from there. It's believed a secret drug lab could have been operating in the unit. The first pictures have been published of Beaconsfield miners Todd Russell and Brant Webb trapped underground after a rockfall last April. The miners were forced to call the small cage home for 14 gruelling days. The fall killed Larry Knight, one of the men's co-workers. The images have been released ahead of a book launch about their ordeal. They were taken with a camera pushed through a pipe five days after the rock fall. Brant will wave the chequered flag at today's Gold Coast Indy 300. Normally you can now find him selling boats. Todd has moved on to become a mining consultant. Overseas now. The violence has continued in Iraq. Three military soldiers have been killed bringing the US death toll for October to 78. That's the deadliest month this year. And at least 24 Iraqis are dead after several attacks across the country's north. A car bomb exploded near the Tigris River at Tikrit, killing four people and injuring 16 others. Iraqi police believe the bomb missed its intended target. the speed record A cyclist has broken

for riding a bike from Perth to Sydney. Richard Vollebregt took 8 days and 11 hours to cross the country easily beating the previous record of 10 days. Richard pedalled for about 500km a day to enter the record books.

Amazing performance. Time for sport now, with Kylie.

That's not how we are getting home? Australia has easily beaten England in their Champions Trophy match in India. England was bowled out for 169 in 45 overs.

In reply Australia's top order struggled, with Ricky Ponting out for one. But a 118-run partnership from Damien Martyn and Mike Hussey steered the Aussies to victory. Australia's next match is against India next sunday. Australia scored two tries in the final minutes to beat New Zealand in the Tri-Nations Rugby League. The Kangaroos won the match in Melbourne, 20 points to 15.

The Kiwis were fired up after their haka, and scored first. They were seven points clear with four minutes left on the clock, until a superb 60m try from Greg Inglis. Mark Gasnier then scored to seal the match. You know, full credit to us. We probably didn't play our best football, compared to last week, but we hung in there with our defence, and we come back. Australia takes on Great Britain in Sydney in two weeks. An Australian will take pole position at the Indy 300 on the Gold Coast, for the first time in 25 years. Will Power out-paced seasoned veterans

The man with the best name in sport. on the streets of Surfers Paradise. The Queenslander says he's feeling confident about the race. In the NBL overnight, the Sydney Kings have thrashed West Sydney by a record 43 points. The Kings beat the Razorbacks, 142-99. In other games, Cairns beat the Wildcats 89 to 79. Adelaide by 22 points. It was the Kings' highest score and biggest winning margin over the Razorbacks. It was also Sydney's seventh straight win over their cross-city rivals.

In the A-League, Sydney has lost its first home game in more than a year. Melbourne took the match 2-1,

to score their first-ever win on Sydney soil.

Well, Keith Urban is the latest celebrity to fall off the wagon, admitting himself into drug rehab. In a written statement he says wife of four months Nicole Kidman is by his side and regrets the hurt he's caused. But Urban isn't the only star to struggle with drugs and alcohol. Mel Gibson and George Michael are the most recent to make headlines. So why do so many celebrities fall victim to substance abuse? Joining us from Sydney is Paul Dillon from the Drug and Alcohol Research Centre. Good morning, Paul. Why do we see so many stars addicted to drugs and alcohol?

I think you have to look at the type

of drugs that are often spoken

about, cocaine

about, cocaine is often tied with a

glamorous image, tied with the

entertainment industry. But you see

alcohol problems, which of course,

is the major problem across the

whole population. I suppose,

realistically, celebrities are

realistically, celebrities are just one part of the wider population

one part of the wider population and they really are no different, apart

from having a lot more time and

money on their hands.. Do you

money on their hands.. Do you think there are perhaps added pressures

with being a celebrity, do you to

the public scrutiny of your every

move? There is something called the pressure-cooker effect.

pressure-cooker effect. The people

work extremely hard for long periods

of time and then they play very

hard. The pressure-cooker effect

puts a great deal of pressure

puts a great deal of pressure on them. If drugs and alcohol are

around, they start using it. One

around, they start using it. One in 10 of every person who uses any form

of drug kill get into difficulty

with it. So I guess celebrities are no different

no different in that way. Why do

addicts relapse? We look at the

situation with Keith. You would have

to look at him and think life

couldn't be any better. He had

admited to alcohol and subsstance

abuse in the past. What do you think

made him fall off the wagon? It

made him fall off the wagon? Relapse

is a very common feature of is a very common feature of drug

problems. About 70 to 90 percent of

all people who go through some sort

all people who go through some sort of detox program will relapse in the

first 12 months. It can take time and

and time again to find the right

treatment. Problems tend to be

things like first of all, being

forced into a treatment first of

all, you weren't ready to go into

it. Emotional stress, and I

it. Emotional stress, and I think that is a big, big factor. With

celebrities an off lot of time,

pressure from other drug users. So

if you actually associate

if you actually associate with a group of people who use alcohol, who

use cocaine, who use whatever, you

are more likey to fall into the trap

of starting to use again. So pall,

you say the incidents of alcohol and

drug abuse amongst celebrities is

the same as the wider society, but

they are much more high profile.

Does seeing the abuse in celebrities

have an impact on young people or

people who read the tabloid press?

It does, it is important how

celebrities respond when they are

caught. What Keith Urban has done is

particularly powerful. He admits he

has a problem. Parents should take

the opportunity to talk to their kid

about drugs. Many parents never

speak about drug use with their

children. Often complain that, "I

don't know when to actually

introcuse -- introduce the subject."

Now is the perfect time. It is

problem, not a bit Now is the perfect time. It is a problem, not a bit of fun. It is a

great opportunity

great opportunity to say to your kid, "This is what can happen if you

start messing around with drugs, if

you get into problems, abuseing a drug

drug like alcohol." Very good

advice, thanks for your time this

morning.

Of course, he was due to appear on

sunrise, but he is due to go into

rehab, he has cancelled his tour,

Nicole was coming with him as well.

He has postponed his visit to

sunrise. We wish them both well. Ahead this morning, did our Dare to Dance kids make the grade at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards? Don't miss the next chapter in our final half hour. But next, Dicko and Ernie Dingo join us on stage.

We're scared. Very rr very scared.

In case you're wondering what e're doing in Perth this morning, we're here for a very special occasion. It's the Channel 7 Telethon, which raises money for the Princess Margaret Hospital for Children, among other worthy causes.

We were there yesterday and the work is amazing.

is amazing. Just remarkable visiting

those kids. What about the

those kids. What about the little girl we saw that was born at 24

weeks, 16 weeks premature. She was

now, 18 weeks old? She is now the

birth weight of your average

full-term baby. When she full-term baby. When she was born,

she was less than a tub of butter. Incredible. Since it began nearly 40 years ago, a staggering $70 million has been donated.

Well done, Perth. Our next two guests are doing their bit to boost funds. The Great Outdoors' Ernie Dingo and Ian 'Dicko' Dickson from 'Celebrity Survivor'. Good morning to you both.

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE There is no

denying that something happens to

celebrities when they get off the

plane at this Telethon. They all go

crazy. Why did you get involved.

After last night taking a severe

pounding from a Western Australia

killing machine, I'm wondering

myself. He took on Dan ay Green

myself. He took on Dan ay Green last night. The Green Machine verses the noto

noto lean machine and Dicky came off

third best out of two people. What

possessed me? The kids of WA. You go

and see those kids in the

and see those kids in the hospital and you would do anything for them.

You took a severe beating to what,

your left eye? Right eye. The tell

tail sign is the bruisegist above

it. I thought you herned

it. I thought you herned into Mikhail Gorbachev for for a moment.

It is a trophy to take back. You did

go crazy. My final vision as I fell

asleep, you were in a spa with girl in a asleep, you were in a spa with a

girl in a red bikini and you were

swapping clothes. I got back swapping clothes. I got back to

swapping clothes. I got back to Telethon after that. Well, it was

quite an image to go to sleep by.

Are your surprised the amount of

money raised? No, I'm surprised how

little it is. On average, we are

talking about $

talking about $2 million a year.

talking about $2 million a year. I mean, in the time we have the

Telethon itself, there is, that is

Telethon itself, there is, that is a

lot of money to

lot of money to help research and get those kids back on their

get those kids back on their feet

again. It is an amazing amount of

money. But you sort of think

could do a money. But you sort of think we

could do a bit better. We have been doing every doing every year. It has been

wonderful to watch. How we beat last

year's record and we do it a bit

harder. So its, thanks tothe people

of Perth and the people of Western

Australia for their jen

Australia for their jenerosity. What

I love is the diversity of

donations. The McCueen family of $ donations. The McCueen family of

$400 and Sally who is 10, sending in

two dollar. But all the dollars

help. The thing is to actually see

what happens to PMH after what happens to PMH after last

year's money. The research and

year's money. The research and the stuff, I went up to PMH

stuff, I went up to PMH yesterday and I tell you what, I go up there

and hang out, they got machines and

stuff to do. It's a hospital. They

got the best coffee in Perth. I'm

going to get sick and pretend

going to get sick and pretend I'm a kid. They do wonderful work with

kid. They do wonderful work with the staff and administration. I

staff and administration. I don't

know about you guys, but when

know about you guys, but when Andrew and I left yesterday our over riding

feeling was of optimism. That is the

bizarre thing to go and visit

children's hospitals. We get the

privilege to go and do it when

privilege to go and do it when we are in the public eye is that no-one

whinges. You see a lot of suffering

but it is very quiet, stoic brave

suffering. The outlook is always

incredibly positive. It makes

incredibly positive. It makes me feel about that tiny when I come out and think, "

and think, "Right, got to do more.."

Taking a pounding is nothing. It is

interinging you use the word

privilege. One of the headers was a

quote from rocker fellah which says

don't think of it giving as a

don't think of it giving as a duty, think of it as a privilege. The

thing about raising fund every year

in Telethon is the fact that every

year we are going to get kids. Every

year we are going to get kids who

dare to have illnesses. As I was

saying, it is not their fault that

they get these illnesses but we can

fix it by making them better. More

kids are coming, we need more money,

more research in lots of areas.

Professor Fiona Stanley said

yesterday, we were listening to a

speech from her, she said 5 percent

all of children are born with a
