Controversial Muslim leader Sheikh Taj Aldin Al-Hilali is considering running against Premier Morris Iemma in the New South Wales election in March. Fairfax newspapers report the Sheikh wants to run for the Premier's seat of Lakemba. The mufti is also set to endorse two Muslim candidates for the Labor-held seats of Bankstown and Auburn. Mr Iemma says he's looking forward to the contest. In the United States, Senator Hillary Clinton has taken her first widely anticipated step towards a bid for the White House. In a video posted on her website, the New York Democrat says she'll form an exploratory committee to run for President in 2008. I'm beginning a conversation, with you, with America, because we all need to be part of the discussion if we're all going to be part of the solution. Six other Democrat hopefuls are also vying for their party's nomination, including popular Senator Barack Obama. Shark patrols are continuing around Victoria's Phillip Island following reports a great white has been stalking holiday-makers. Swimmers who've spotted the shark say it's up to 6m long.

Water police have been forced to evacuate one beach. Authorities say it's rare to have a shark this size come so close to shore. Sir Edmund Hillary has returned to Antartica to mark the 50th anniversary of Scott Base, which he helped build. The 87-year-old helped lead a team who travelled across Antartica to the South Pole in 1955

two years after he conquered Mount Everest. Thinking to myself, "This is it - "we can head towards the Pole, we can do anything." Sir Edmund admits this will probably be his last trip to the continent. And now back to Mark with the rest of the morning's sport. Thanks, Bec. Sydney FC is into the A-League finals after a 1-1 draw with Queensland. Alex Brosque scored for Sydney in front of 32,000 people at Suncorp Stadium. The Roar then struck back to equalise. Sydney was down to 10 men for the last 13 minutes after Ufuk Talay was red-carded. We've had a lot of dramas on and off the field. But, you know, thankfully, the boys dug deep tonight.

We went to 10 men which is unfortunate, but you know everyone dug deep and thankfully got the result. Queensland's season is over. They needed a win to reach the finals. The Queensland Reds have beaten Manu Samoa in a rugby trial match on the Gold Coast. It was a scrappy and unconvincing 31-3 win for the Reds. The Waratahs beat the Brumbies 12-0 in their trial in Wollongong. New South Wales scored two tries, but it was a game marred by serious injury. The Waratahs' Al Kanaar and Matt Dunning suffered bad knee injuries. The Brumbies' David Palavi was taken from the field after hurting his neck in a scrum. In the NBL, the Sydney Kings have had an impressive 115-75 win over Adelaide while the South Dragons held off West Sydney 90-84. In other matches overnight, Perth beat Townsville, Brisbane was too good for Wollongong and the Tigers downed New Zealand. And skipper Ricky Ponting rejoins the Australian one-day team for this afternoon's day-nighter against New Zealand in Sydney. Ponting had a rest on Friday when the Aussies beat England.

Cloud increasing in Sydney and a very hot 37 degrees. An afternoon shower in the national capital, with a high of 32.

Hobart can expect some thunderstorms. Rain easing in Melbourne and 26. Some showers in Adelaide. Perth, fine and 33. And storms in Darwin with a top of 32. And looking further ahead - Mostly fine in Brisbane tomorrow before showers on Tuesday. Showers in Sydney. Remaining fine and warm in Canberra. And some showers in Hobart tomorrow before fining up. Becoming fine in Melbourne over the next couple of days. Fine with some cloud about in Adelaide. Perth should stay hot. And showers and storms will persist in Darwin. Let's take a look at what's making papers around the country. And Sydney's 'Sunday Telegraph' has a front-page story

Other than trees, as Beretts pointed out before! that might raise eyebrows. It reports private detectives are being paid thousands of dollars by some Sydney councils to have sex with prostitutes in a bid to shut down illegal brothels. The councils in question are Ku-ring-gai, Willoughby and North Sydney. They say the measures are extreme, but necessary.

In order to prove the illegal

activity is taking place. All in the

name of research. $

Yes, one of the councils spent 15

You have already got one. Whoo whpg! The research shows successful males prefer a partner with a high-powered job over one who will stay at home with the children.

because they are almost extinct.

If you're thinking of getting married any time soon, Sydney's 'Sun-Herald' says brides beware. Apparently, brides-to-be are being preyed on by aggressive sales staff. They're using all the old tricks to make that sale ranging from demanding a same-day deposit, to offers of personal loans. A covert operation by 'Choice' magazine also found some shops claimed a dress might not be available if customers didn't buy it now - a falsehood given they're made to order. So, we want to hear from you. What's your worst experience with a sales assistant? Have you ever got into a big argument at a shop? Drop us an email or send us an SMS.

I got married recently.

Congratulations. It didn't happen to me but it

That has been happening for time

That has been happening for time eternal. The salesman's pitch, this

is the last one and someone was in

half an hour ago looking at it. We And sports pages around the country are leading with the tennis, although Alicia Molik gets a bigger picture because her campaign ended before deadline. Of course, last night both she and Lleyton Hewitt bowed out of the Australian Open.

That means there are no Aussies left in the singles.

Which is always a sad time for Which is always a sad time for the

Australian Open. On we go, mixed

Inflows into our dams have never been this low. In fact, in 2006, we've received almost 90% less than the average. So, tough new Stage 3 Water Restrictions now apply in the ACT. Daily water consumption must come down much further to give us the best chance to avoid even tougher restrictions in the future.

For full details of the restrictions, contact ACTEW's Water Conservation Office or visit actew.com.au. The world's eyes are on China this weekend after reports it fired a ballistic missile into space. It's believed China used a ground-based rocket to destroy one of its own ageing satellites. US Intelligence picked up the activity, but China refuses to confirm or deny the strike. It's the first such action for more than two decades, and has drawn international criticism. So has China fired the first shot in a new space arms race? Dr Keith Suter is our foreign affairs editor. Good morning, Keith. Why would China do this?

This is certainly taken us by surprise

This is certainly taken us by surprise we know China is developing

rapidly in its military activities.

The exact level of military spend sg

a state secret, but as China becomes

a more significant economic

a more significant economic player, it is going to increase its military

out reach. In the case of space, it

is the last frontier. A lot of

people don't realise how close we

are to space. In Sydney, we are

closer to outer space than Canberra.

That's is remarkable. Where does it

start? About 100 miles up. That is

internationally recognised as the

common heritage of all man kind but

we seem to be encroaching on it. You

used the right phrase, the common

heritage of human kind. There is a

big debate, people believe it should

be that way and demilitarised be that way and demilitarised but

President Bush said we are not going

to accept bans on the weapons on

outer space and people are saying

the Americans are trying to claim it

as the fifty-first state. China is

doing that. One

doing that. One of the obvious doing that. One of the obvious ways

China can do it by saying to Americans, "

China can do it by saying to the Americans, "If you are going to take

the view you are going to do the view you are going to do what

you want and ignore the views of 160

countries, we will do the same

ourselves, " Is it saber rattling to

satellites or anyone's satellites?

satellites or anyone's satellites?

The global economy is so heavily

reliant on satellites, so people

using pagers, autoic teller

machines, car navigation systems,

they all rely on satellites. The was

one a decade ago that got hit by

space debris and something like space debris and something like 40

States went off line. Not to mention

the Boony dolls that will be out of

action. It is significant what the

Chinese have been shown they have

been able to do. Fire a miceal from

the ground and send it up 500 miles

or800 kilometres it is probably

their 4th attempt but they can

their 4th attempt but they can do it. Yet China has never confirmed

nor denied they have done it It is

part of the problem of dealing with

a commonianest regime. We know

a commonianest regime. We know more than the average person in China

would know. It is like dealing with

the old Soviet Union. All the names

we use in the media were the names

that NATO used. What do you think

the response will be to this?

Particularly from the US, who I

guess, has the most to lose as it

develops its Star Wars satellite

systemch Obviously we have seen

concerns expressed by the United

States, European Union and

Australia, we have all got entothe

reliant on the satellites for ordary

civilian use, for the United States

they use it for spying purposes, so

in terms of the next rounds of

negotiations with north Korea, it is

significant. Some of the satellites

are guided by Pine Gap in Australia.

We play a key role in that we are

helping to guide the American spy

satellites. The Americans are

concerned not only by the economic

implications but the military implications because

over Taiwan. A taste of their own

medicine. It is, and as I said,

President Bush said we are going to

said, "You do that, we will too."

Thanks very much for your insight. Later this morning - the film that had a dream run at the Golden Globes. 'Dreamgirls' is Nelson's Movie of the Week. But after the break - the latest headlines. And why George W. Bush and Condoleezza Rice are like Abbott and Costello.

It's loosly based on the story of The Supremes. And Nelson will give us the lowdown shortly. Plus, this week, we'll put the spotlight on relationship problems in the Counselling Corner. And in a moment, a very funny skit that might seem a little familiar to you. Right now, though, it's time to check the headlines with Rebecca Maddern. Good morning again, everyone. Sydney police are hunting two men

after shots were fired at officers overnight. The inner city suburb of Redfern was in lockdown for several hours and trains were stopped from passing through. But police have failed to find the pair. Heavy rain is expected to ease the bushfire crisis in Victoria's north-east today. Up to 50mm of rain is forecast to fall over the fire-ravaged area. The blaze has so far destroyed 33,000 hectares. Sheik Al-Hilali is considering running against New South Wales Premier Morris Iemma in the March State election. The controversial Muslim leader reportedly wants to contest the seat of Lakemba. And making sports headlines this morning - There are no Aussies left in the singles draw at the Australian Open. Lleyton Hewitt was beaten last night by Chilean Fernando Gonzalez in four sets, while Alicia Molik faded after a strong opening set to go down to Patty Schnyder in three. Sydney FC has booked a place in the A-League finals after a 1-1 draw with Queensland. Sydney managed to end the Roar's season despite being a man down for the last 13 minutes. And the Waratahs have downed the Brumbies 12-0 in their rugby trial at Wollongong. The Brumbies' David Palavi was taken from the field with a neck injury, while the Queensland Reds beat Manu Samoa in the other trial match on the Gold Coast. Weatherwatch this Sunday - Mainly fine in Brisbane. 37 in degrees. An afternoon shower in Canberra. Hobart can expect some thunderstorms. Rain easing in Melbourne. Showers in Adelaide. Fine in Perth. Storms in Darwin. And we'll have more news and sport at 9:00.

I can't believe those boys are out

in their footy shorts. 27, 40

degrees, tough! For those of you missing your Sunday morning dose of political satire, never fear - the famous Riley Diary will return in a fortnight. But to tide us over, we went to that other great source of pollie humour - YouTube. And we found a clever take-off of the classic Abbott and Costello 'Who's On First' routine. Except this one stars

Want the latest goss on movies? Lock it on Sunrise in '07. I've gotta say about Sunrise, you were the first people in the world to pick up that this was going to be a success. Jono Coleman is back from London and talking flicks every week. We got addicted to sunrise. Mate, you've made their day. Ah, brilliant. And only Sunrise has Nelson Aspen. I bought a $21 million - or an $18 million -home... You are loaded! So when it comes to movies, you've got the inside scoop. You can be in, you know, movies around the universe and an international movie star, but you're on TV! I'm on with Mel and Koch, that's a big deal. High five! Sunrise, where being first matter. 'Dreamgirls' certainly cleaned up at this week's Golden Globes.

It picked up three gongs and now there's major Oscar buzz. Our Hollywood correspondent Nelson Aspen was at the awards. Nelson, good morning. Good morning to you, guys. I've got my sparkly shirt on today because we're going to talk about 'Dreamgirls'. Of course, it's on a real rollercoast ride right now after its Golden Globe success. Of course, it was a long-running Broadway musical, it's finally become a movie, it's got an A-list cast and one heck of a soundtrack. MOVIE: What you need is a break and I'm here to give it to you. You swear? If I'm lyin', I'm dyin'. 1, 2, 3... hit me! $400 a week to sing behind Mr Jimmy Early. On the road, starting tomorrow morning. To say 'Dreamgirls' is a big-budget musical would be an understatement. # I know what's happening... # Turn on the radio! # I've been around...# I couldn't believe this all could be happening to me! It's an adaptation of the 1982 Broadway musical which won six Tony Awards.

Now the film is already emulating its predecessor's success, picking up three Golden Globes, including Best Picture for a musical or comedy. 'Dreamgirls'! CROWD CHEERS Set in 1960s Detroit, 'Dreamgirls' is a not so thinly-veiled account of the rise of Diana Ross and The Supremes. You're going to stay here and open your own act. You say our own act?! She's going to sing lead. What do you mean? I always sing lead. # We're your Dreamgirls, boy # In the movie, they're called The Dreamettes and Beyonce Knowles imitates her own real life playing the lead singer of a trio.

I knew that this part was my part. I knew it was something that I had been preparing for with the other movies that I had done.

# You want all my love and my devotion # But I tell you, it's newcomer Jennifer Hudson that steals the show. # Right on the line # Jennifer Hudson! CROWD CHEERS Amazingly, this is her first film. She rose to prominence here after being booted off 'American Idol' by Simon Cowell. Every story is similar to my story. You know, we've kind of had the same path, maybe not as dramatic or drastic as hers, but it's very similar and I felt like nobody could tell her story better than I could. It's hard to believe this is Jennifer's first movie and she's doing such a great job and there's so much pressure for her to play this part. Dana's beautiful and she's always been beautiful. But I've got the voice, Curtis, I've got the voice. You can't put me in back, you just can't! Oscar winner Jamie Foxx plays the hotshot record producer. I know you're good, and you know you're good, too. You're very talented. You are a stone cold fox. But that ain't enough. A girl like you can get hurt if you don't have someone protecting you. Now I'm here to do that for you, baby, but you've gotta believe me, you've gotta trust in me. You wish that all the movies and all of your experiences could be like this. This is the type of process that I like. And to be able to, you know, have fun with your heroes and the people that you admire, that's the way it's supposed to be. # You're gonna make your way to the top I know you got it! # But it's always real, so real # # Always so real! # # When you're coming down # Eddie Murphy, Golden Globes Best Supporting Actor in a musical or comedy,

is a soulful crooner. It's rare that you get to be in something like this

and you dream about being in something like this with a cast that's this strong and a director that's this strong. Like I said, I've been making movies for a long time, and to be involved with a piece of material like this - that's a dream come true. Well, I'm no psychic, but this movie is definately a strong contender

for this week's Oscar nominations, and it has taken fallen Idol Jennifer Hudson and made her onto a bona fide star in her first screen roll. Truly a dream come true. Have a great Sunday. Thanks, Nelson. And 'Dreamgirls' is in cinemas now.

# Reach out for the sunrise # Put your hands in to the big sky. #

VOICE-OVER: Now back to Sunrise with Lisa and Andrew. Good morning. Welcome back to Weekend Sunrise.

Coming up - the racism row that's gripped the world. UK 'Celebrity Big Brother' contestant Jade Goody has been slammed for her treatment of Bollywood A-lister and fellow housemate Shilpa Shetty. This weekend, the public got its own back, voting Jade out of the house. But what does the whole saga mean for reality television? We'll tackle that in this half hour.

Plus, if you were in any doubt about the need to Cool the Globe,

look no further. In our final half hour, we'll take you to the most polluted town in the world. Also ahead - the search for an Aussie Billy Elliot is moving into its final stages. Producers have it down to nine boys.

We just saw him a moment ago as he

attempted oocool the globe. We'll meet the aspiring stars just after 9:30. But the tennis leads the news this morning. So let's go straight to Beretts. Good morning. It was a tough old night for the Aussies on Rod laver Arena. Lleyton Hewitt and Alicia Molik are both out of the Australian Open. Hewitt lost in four sets to Chile's Fernando Gonzalez, while Alicia Molik went down to Switzerland's Patty Schnyder. Lleyton Hewitt was up against a confident Chilean in the third round of the Australian Open. Hewitt was soundly beaten in the first two sets with temporary coach Scott Draper looking a little frustrated. But he turned the match around in the third when Fernando Gonzalez stumbled. COMMENTATOR: And there's the error, it's 0-15. The crowd could feel another Hewitt comeback in the air. He's getting a look at daylight. Is Gonzales tightening up? Is the moment getting to him? The Australian then took the set. (Lleyton shouts) Come on! CROWD CHEERS But it wasn't to be. Gonzalez regained control in the fourth and took the match. UMPIRE: Game, set, match. Just too good from Gonzales.

Earlier in the night, Alicia Molik's dream comeback came to an end. She took the first set against Patty Schnyder 6-3,

but was thrashed in the next two 6-2, 6-0. And Alicia Molik's run has come to an end. in the singles tournaments. There are no more Australians left

Unforced errors told the story if

Lleyton, 29 to Lleyton, 15 to Lleyton, 29 to Lleyton, 15 to

Gonzalez. That is how it unfolded. Now with all the rest of the morning's news, here's Rebecca Maddern. Good morning. Emergency crews will be tested today, with no sign of a let-up in wild weather across the Eastern States. Heavy rain has brought flooding to South Australia and Victoria, while bushfires burn in New South Wales. When it rains, it pours.

Something the drought-ravaged bush hasn't seen in a long while. There'll be more rain in western Victoria today where more than 20 homes have already suffered flood damage. The rain is expected to ease the bushfire crisis in the north-east today, but it's done nothing but cause headaches for tennis organisers in Melbourne. In South Australia, four communities have been isolated by the downpour with Hawker, north of Adelaide, the worst hit. In New South Wales, close to 50mm has fallen over Broken Hill, but there hasn't been a drop in the Kosciusko National Park where firefighters are battling a blaze from both sides of the New South Wales/Victorian border. So far, crews have managed to keep the flames away from Thredbo, but with the temperature set to soar again today

authorities say the village is still not safe. A hot day, too, for Sydney and the Hunter Valley with forecast tops in the 40s sparking a total fire ban. A firefighting skycrane has been redeployed from the Snowy Mountains to the city as a precaution.

Sydney police are hunting two men

who shot at officers in Redfern overnight. Police set up a perimeter around the suburb and stopped trains from running through the area

as a massive search was launched for the pair. The men opened fire on two officers who tried to stop them in a street. Very close. The bullets only narrowly missed one of the officer's arms from a close vicinity. A search involving the police helicopter and dog squad has failed to find the men. The Chinese Government says it's opposed to an arms race in space despite reportedly launching a missile test.

The US says China fired a ground-based ballistic missile

10 days ago. Beijing has refused to deny the report, and Sunrise foreign editor Keith Suter says China could be flexing its military muscle. We know that as China becomes a more significant economic power, so it's going to increase its military outreach and, in the case of space, of course, space is the final frontier. Health authorities are still trying to track down the source legionnaire's outbreak in Sydney. of a potentially deadly

At least six of the seven people who've contracted the disease celebrated New Year's Eve at Circular Quay. One man remains in intensive care in hospital. Other cases could be discovered this week. The results of tests on cooling towers should be known tomorrow. Controversial Muslim leader Sheik Taj Aldin Al-Hilali

is considering running against Premier Morris Iemma in the New South Wales election in March. Fairfax newspapers report

the Sheik wants to run for the Premier's seat of Lakemba. The mufti is also set to endorse two Muslim candidates for the Labor-held seats of Bankstown and Auburn. Mr Iemma says he's looking forward to the contest. In the United States, Senator Hillary Clinton has taken her first widely anticipated step towards a bid for the White House. In a video posted on her website, the New York Democrat says she'll form an exploratory committee to run for President in 2008. I'm beginning a conversation. with you, with America, because we all need to be part of the discussion

if we're all going to be part of the solution. Six other Democrat hopefuls are also vying for their party's nomination,

including popular senator Barack Obama. A British container ship carrying explosives is beached a mile off the English coast

with fears it could spill its cargo. The crew abandoned ship on Thursday in stormy seas.

A French tug boat has pulled the vessel towards the coast and pollution teams are on stand-by in case the hull splits in half. Sydney FC is into the A-League finals after a 1-1 draw with Queensland.

Alex Brosque scored for Sydney in front of 32,000 fans at Suncorp Stadium. The Roar then struck back to equalise. Sydney was down to 10 men for the last 13 minutes after Ufuk Talay was red-carded.

We've had a lot of dramas on and off the field.

But, you know, thankfully, the boys dug deep tonight. We went to 10 men, which is unfortunate, but, you know, everyone dug deep and thankfully got the result.

Queensland's season is over. They needed a win to reach the finals. The Queensland Reds have beaten Manu Samoa in a rugby trial match on the Gold Coast. It was a scrappy and unconvincing 31-3 win for the Reds. The Waratahs beat the Brumbies 12-0 in their trial in Wollongong.

New South Wales scored two tries but it was a game marred by serious injury. The Waratahs' Al Kanaar and Matt Dunning suffered bad knee injuries. The Brumbies' David Palavi was taken from the field after hurting his neck in a scrum. In the NBL, the Sydney Kings have had an impressive 115-75 win over Adelaide

while the South Dragons held off West Sydney 90-84. In other matches overnight - Perth beat Townsville, Brisbane was too good for Wollongong and the Tigers downed New Zealand. And skipper Ricky Ponting rejoins the Australian one-day team for this afternoon's day-nighter against New Zealand in Sydney. Ponting had a rest on Friday when the Aussies beat England.

Of korx, a huge day for tennis,

Amelie Mauresmo in ac, Roger Federer

out there and Sam Stosur in the

mixed doubles tonight. Looks great. Now to Sunday's weather. Showers and a top of 31 in Cairns today. Brisbane, mainly fine and 32. Cloud increasing in Sydney and a very hot 37 degrees. An afternoon shower in the national capital, with a high of 32. Hobart can expect some thunderstorms.

Rain easing in Melbourne and 26. Some showers in Adelaide. And storms in Darwin, with a top of 32. And looking further ahead - mostly fine in Brisbane tomorrow before showers on Tuesday. And some showers in Hobart tomorrow before fining up. Becoming fine in Melbourne over the next couple of days. Fine with some cloud about in Adelaide. And showers and storms will persist in Darwin. We've heard a lot about the row involving contestants of the UK's 'Celebrity Big Brother' program. Housemates are accused of racism and bullying after several arguments with Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty. Her accent has been ridiculed and she's been repeatedly referred to as "the Indian". There's been world condemnation, including widespread protests across her native India. This weekend the British public had its say,

and this is what happened to the housemate who did most of the taunting - reality TV star Jade Goody. And I can now reveal

that the third person to be evicted from the 'Big Brother' house is... ..Jade. Alright! (Laughs) The British public evicted the main perpetrator, but there are now calls for the entire program to be banned. So what does the whole saga mean for television? Kath Albury is a lecturer in cultural studies at the University of Sydney. Good morning. Has reality TV gone too far, or does it just reflect real life?

I think it is a reflection of real

life and not only that, the idea of

banning it is shooting the messenger in a way,

in a way, because if this is an

ordinary person, reflecting a kind

of fairly ordinary British view, then it is a sense

then it is a sense of a reflection

Find out on Monday. Sunrise - full of surprises from 29 January. As you've heard in the news, controversial Muslim leader Sheik Taj Aldin Al-Hilali is considering running for State Parliament. He's expected to challenge New South Wales Premier Morris Iemma in his seat of Lakemba. So does the Sheik have a chance? It's over to our Weekend All Stars, Glenn Wheeler from Radio 2UE and social commentator Rebecca Le Tourneau. Good morning to you both.

Glenn, what do you make of this?

the country. While he is out, the

government should get tough and keep

him and his mate, sheik Mohammed. My

mother said, if you can't say

anything nice, say nothing at all. I

would like to say nothing about the
