Well, happy - just relieved, thankful to go home. Everyone is in good health and in good spirits now that we have been freed. The news also a surprise for their families in Great Britain. I'm sitting here now with this glass of champagne in my hand and I still can't believe my son's going to be coming home.

I cried for the whole time - haven't been able to cope with it. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad calling it an Easter gift, denying he's cut a deal with Great Britain. TRANSLATION: We didn't want to continue the tension - the British Government acted badly and that prolonged the process. The British refusing to apologise over Tehran's claims the British sailors and marines strayed into Iranian waters. Throughout, we have taken a measured approach -

firm but calm, not negotiating, not confronting either. The Iranian President, in a piece of political theatre, spoke to each Briton prior to their journey home, the former captives paraded out of uniform. It's come as a complete surprise. Completely out of the blue? Caught us off guard, yeah. Observers have criticised the Royal Navy for allowing their people to be caught.

The former captives are also under scrutiny for allowing themselves to be used by the Iranian propaganda machine. I can understand why you were insulted

by our apparent intrusion into your waters. They didn't appear to have any particular military discipline while under arrest. The British personnel put on the first flight home. Murray McCloskey, Ten News.

Unions say John Howard is running scared over his workplace reforms. The Prime Minister urging big business to mount an advertising blitz to sell the new laws in the lead-up to the election.

John Howard has already had a taste of the campaign Labor and the unions will run against WorkChoices.

TV AD: The new IR laws have made millions of families sitting ducks.

He's urging big business to help him counter the attack that's coming.

The ACTU is believed to have a $20 million fighting fund.

I think everyone who believes in the value of WorkChoices should be willing to fight for the preservation WorkChoices. Leading business organisations lukewarm. We have traditionally drawn the line

in terms of taking out paid advertising. Greg Combet says business leaders can sniff the winds of change.

I think the business community is starting to think, "Well, we better play it a bit more sensibly here, "we'd better stop batting for the Liberal Party." Not that the Liberals will be left in the lurch - corporate and other donations amounted to $30 million at the last election, according to official figures. But the Business Council of Australia could come to the party, today leaving its options open and, according to one industry source, is sounding out its members to fund a TV ad campaign.

John Howard doesn't defend the battlers with these laws - he creates them. And that's why he needs a new propaganda campaign. Mr Howard was working his electorate today. His newly endorsed ALP challenger Maxine McKew says plenty of people have told her they're thinking of voting Labor for the first time because of the new laws. Paul Bongiorno, Ten News.

A new low for Sydney criminals - ram-raiding the Royal North Shore Hospital. A scene of destruction has been left in the hospital's waiting area after the brazen attack early this morning. A four-wheel drive was driven through the front glass doors and used to knock over an ATM. A male hospital employee confronted the four thieves as they were removing the contents of the machine

and was bashed in the head. A new AIDS awareness campaign is in the pipeline after a sharp jump in the number of people contracting the disease. It will aim to shock, just like the Grim Reaper ads did 20 years ago.

An ominous figure re-emerges as the original engineers of the infamous AIDS awareness campaign reunite. CLANKING

It's 20 years since the commercial sent fear into the hearts of many Australians. The blunt message hitting home, our country leading the world in AIDS prevention and health care strategies. It was outrageous and confronting, it really shook you by the scruff of the neck and said you gotta listen to this - AIDS is real. But the Grim Reaper's effectiveness has worn off - prompting a renewed push for a fresh education program.

I think governments might have been caught napping, I think they're aware now that the virus is increasing and that something needs to be done. In fact, figures show an increase in people practising unsafe sex, resulting in a hike in the number of people diagnosed with the virus between 2000 and 2005. Over the last seven years 1,000 Australians each year have died from AIDS.

The Federal Government is now considering a new AIDS awareness campaign but this time with a more targeted approach. HIV/AIDS is still very much a disease of gay men and intravenous drug users. While antiviral drugs delay the onset of AIDS a vaccine is still nowhere in sight. The message of the Grim Reaper 20 years ago - prevention is the only cure we've got -

it was true then, it is true now. Catherine Kennedy, Ten News. Cause for celebration on day one of the Royal Easter Show - the event celebrating 10 years at Homebush. And as the crowds poured in the gloves were off in some of the most hotly-contested competitions. It's on again, time for everyone to let their hair down. (All cheer)

Schoolkids especially rolled up for day one at the Royal Easter Show. Another year of showbags, sweets and screams. Today was the 10th birthday of the spectacular at its Homebush site.

It is an icon, it's been part of the beginning, uthe story of Sydney Olympic Park's beginning and I'm sure we'll be here for many years to come. An especially sweet reason to celebrate. They weren't the only ones. It's hot in many kitchens over the past 24 hours for the show's prized blue ribbon bake-off. It's a very tough competition, very tough. Entrants weren't going anywhere hours before the official judging even began.

Only once in 25 years have I gone away from the show without having won a prize. Highly competitive as you would imagine. I hope there's no blood on the carpet. Lots of cakes and even more people over the two weeks organisers hope to break one million visitors. If you thought today was a bumper day at the show, of course it's just the beginning - 13 days to go.

And tomorrow, Good Friday, traditionally the show's biggest. Of course the Easter Show isn't all that's going on this weekend. And whether you're going away or staying home, here's all the info you should need. The petrol companies swear it's just coincidence but sure as eggs

as soon as there's a long weekend up go the prices. Today's average of $1.26.4 the highest in seven months. Which probably won't bother you if you're heading out of town by plane instead of car.

Then you only have to worry about the extra delays at the airport. One of the year's busiest travel times made worse by new security measures on carry-on liquids. Airlines say get to the airport an hour earlier for international flights,

a half hour earlier for domestic. Staying home? You'll be wanting some fish. Plenty of snapper, we've had plenty of snapper come through the market this week. King fish is also a good buy this week. Barramundi - mustn't forget the barramundi. There's been good supplies today, a lot f good supplies come through.

The fish markets open tomorrow at 3:00am and trade across the weekend. And they swear the scare campaign about high prawn prices is just that.

We get this new come through every Easter.

And for the first time in six years it's also Greek Easter this weekend, meaning there are some very busy bakeries. The Hellenic bakery at Marrickville doing piping hot business.

The Scoullis family working back-to-back 12-hour shifts

to make enough of these tsourekis - plaited bread with a red egg inside.

Oh, and there might be a little bit of chocolate eaten too. The latest estimate? That we'll eat 200 million of them, or 10 each.

Pretty busy on the M3? I have seen

it worse. But the effort three it

is pretty busy. There has been a accident Al wild. Jo Abi in the Keddies traffic helicopter. An Air Force Hercules is tonight on its way to the tsunami-ravaged Solomon Islands taking urgent supplies and a medical team.

The toll from the tidal wave and earthquakes has risen to 34

as the refugee crisis worsens. More than 5,000 people have been left homeless, forced to scrounge for supplies just to put a roof over their heads. Hundreds of residents of the seaside town of Gizo fleeing to the hills, living in makeshift refugee camps. Already relief workers are reporting the first signs of disease in the camps

with diarrhoea among the children. Despite the squalid conditions and a shortage of safe drinking water, villagers continue to move into the hills. But they keep a watchful eye on the coastline, fearing further killer waves. Next set of waves still come they saying so we are going to make new tent. And this is why they are running - the second wave caught here on amateur video.

Let's go. It's coming up high. Quick. The force of the wave clearly shown by an animal unable to escape the fast-flowing tide. An Australian Hercules today leaving Sydney for the region carrying relief supplies including tarpaulins, blankets and water-purifying tablets. A team of four medics also heading to the Solomons. Steve Wilson, Ten News.

As David Hicks prepares to leave Guantanamo Bay, the parents of an American caught fighting with Taliban are demanding their son be set free. They say he should get a light sentence, like the Australian. Like David Hicks,

John Walker Lindh was captured in Afghanistan. He was labelled a traitor and dubbed America's Taliban solider, but unlike David Hicks Lindh isn't getting out of prison any time soon. David Hicks will be home with his family in only nine months time.

We wish that John could be home with us in nine months time as well. Lindh's parents are now using what they say is Hicks's light sentence to try to pressure the US President into reducing their son's 20-year sentence. Remember that John did not plead guilty to any sort of terrorism offence. David Hicks, as I understand his plea bargain, did plead guilty to assisting a terrorist organisation.

Lindh, who converted to Islam at 18, was originally charged with supporting terrorism

and conspiring to kill Americans. But in 2002, after a year in US custody, he pleaded guilty to lesser charges including carrying weapons against American troops. You could see the terror in his eyes. I mean I have looked at those photographs over and over again and there's terror in his eyes. The 26-year-old now sits in America's highest security prison in Colorado

as David Hicks prepares to head home to Adelaide. And while Hicks' legal battles may be over, the political fallout continues for Prime Minister John Howard with 65,000 Australians signing a petition claiming Hicks was robbed of his right to a fair trial because he was forced to face a US military tribunal. Leisa Goddard-Roles, Ten News.

Police in China have gone to extraordinary lengths to capture a murder suspect. They called in the fire brigade to flush out the man

when he barricaded himself in a hospital armed with kitchen knives. The suspect wasn't hurt. He's accused of murdering at least three people,

including his former mother-in-law and son. Police believe the killing spree began when the man's ex-wife refused to marry him again. Ugly brawls have erupted at a soccer match in Rome. Manchester United fans battled Roma supporters and Italian riot police during the Champions League quarterfinal. Several fans were injured in fights both inside and outside Rome's Olympic Stadium. Football officials are investigating the incident

with growing concerns about hooliganism.

Roma ended up winning the match 2-1. A tornado has made a rare appearance in Japan. The twister formed on the Sea of Japan off the coast of Tottori nearly 700km south-west of Tokyo. It disappeared after about five minutes

before it reached the shore. No-one was hurt and it didn't cause any damage. Meteorologists say the tornado was generated by unusually cold air temperatures

in the region.

Top stories this news hour -

15 British sailors being held by Iran have unexpectedly been released. They'd been held captive for nearly two weeks. The Iranian President declaring their release was an Easter gift and not the result of a deal with Britain. New Opposition Leader Barry O'Farrell has used his first day on the job to overturn one of the party's most contentious policies. He's scrapped Peter Debnam's cuts to the public service and has named public transport as his top priority.

And an army captain and a former soldier have been arrested by counter-terrorism police over the alleged theft of several military rocket-launchers. The weapons were allegedly sold to criminals for $5,000 each.

Only one of the rocket-launchers has been recovered. Dozens of people have been hurt in violent clashes in the lead-up to East Timor's presidential elections. Gangs of young men

supporting the National Council of Timorese Resistance battled hundreds of rivals from the Fretilin Party in the capital Dili. UN peacekeepers fired warning shots into the air to break up the crowds. At least 32 people were injured,

including two peacekeepers and an 8-year-old girl who was hit by a rock.

The Australian share market went backwards today:

A Perth man is one of the first amputees in Australia to be fitted with an extraordinary new prosthesis. The bionic foot can think for itself, mimicking some of the actions of a human foot. For 20-year-old Nick, being able to walk is once again second nature. The thing about walking with a prothesis, it makes it easier and it make it like you've pretty much got a natural ankle again. Nick's leg was amputated below the knee nearly two years ago after a motorcycle accident. With the aid of his new prosthetic foot, which is powered by artificial intelligence,

Nick no longer has to worry about each step he takes. That's because his new foot has a mind of its own - literally. It's making everything a lot more natural, it's making walking a lot easier, sitting a lot easier. It's pretty much less pain and less effort. The Proprio Foot was developed in Iceland, taking its name from proprioception - the flow of information to the brain? that's lost after amputation. The Proprio itself knows where it is in relationship to the ground and in relationship to gravity. Sophisticated sensors within the foot automatically detect changes in ground level, making stairs and slopes easier to negotiate.

Mainly it's a lot more stable when I'm walking up and down the stairs because the foot moves. When the foot's rigid, it puts you off balance, so it's just a lot easier to get up and down the stairs.

At $28,000 for the whole prosthesis,? the technology isn't cheap, but with its potential to make an amputee's life so much easier, most would say it's money well spent. What is the cost of a foot to you? I mean, for you or I, we walk around every day and we don't think of what it actually means

to to not be able to sense where we are. I thought more about the functions of the foot moreover the price. When my prothesist showed me all the things it can do, I pretty much jumped at the chance. Jamie Freestone, Ten News.

Just before I Gao this lot want to say Happy Easter. Sport now with Brad McEwan

and the Bulldogs aren't conceding they've lost Mark O'Meley. Yes Deb, but if he has gone, team-mate Willie Mason has put quite a spin on what it will mean for the Roosters reputation as NRL pretty boys. Also the secret cossie testing session in Canberra for US superstar Michael Phelps, hidden by cloak and dagger tactics. And the amazing shot that produced a special hug for the hole but why it's likely to be a Masters curse.

Parramatta has officially re-signed NSW Origin winger Eric Grothe until the end of 2010. Meanwhile, Bulldogs star Willie Mason has raised eyebrows,

backing front-row partner Mark O'Meley's imminent decision to quit the club and join rivals the Sydney Roosters.

Suspended for a week Mark O'Meley wasn't at team training today.

But his mates couldn't avoid news of his seemingly inevitable move to the Roosters. If he makes his decision to go to the Roosters he goes with my blessing and he goes with the whole club's I think, because he's definitely poured his heart and soul out for this club and smashed his body around for five or six years and he deserves everything he gets. But Mason couldn't resist a dig at the Roosters - he reckons O'Meley will add to their declining reputation as NRL pretty boys.

He's definitely going to fit into the glamour pack of Beattie and Nate Myles and Danny Nutley, you know, Craig Fitzgibbon, all the pretty boys, you know, so I think that's why he's going to go.

But despite all the reports O'Meley will be a Rooster in 2008 the Dogs still won't concede they've lost their man. I know that he hasn't signed with the Roosters, so I guess that means we're still a chance. Accused of being boring last weekend against the Titans, the Bulldogs today working on some new set plays for tomorrow night's showdown with unbeaten Souths. The new-look Bunnies facing their first acid test of the season. I think it is.

No disrespect to the other three teams but I don't think they really put any pressure on them, you know, so we're definitely looking to build some pressure and just get into a grind. Forgotten halfback Brent Sherwin a chance of playing his first NRL game of the year.

Daniel Holdsworth struggling with a corked thigh. Adam Hawse, Ten News. The AFL has yet to guarantee that

the Round 5 clash between the Swans and Melbourne

will stay at the SCG. League officials met at the ground today to discuss concerns over lighting. There's no doubting the SCG looks different with the Doug Walters Stand almost completely demolished and two light towers

moved to an adjoining car park. The round five fixture still yet to be locked in at the stadium. It's hoped that will be the case. At this point in time there's no decision for that to be altered. The League have questions on player safety, the quality of the lighting and the noise and pollution the generator for the temporary lights will create. Telstra Stadium remains on stand-by to host the round five match.

Of more immediate concern to the red and whites is their first win,

Paul Roos set to make three changes for Saturday's match against Richmond at the MCG. The injured Nick Davis to be replaced by Adam Schneider and Tim Schmit and Heath Grundy coming in for Luke Vogels and Simon Phillips. Brett Kirk achieving life membership for the Swans with his 150th match against the Tigers. I think I played 80 or so senior games back in the (inaudible)

and 80 or so reserve games before I played much senior football, so yeah that's been a long journey but I wouldn't change any of it. Neil Cordy, Ten News. Aussie selectors are confident Shane Watson will still play a part in the World Cup and expect he'll be back for the semifinals.

But just in case - his Queensland team-mate James Hopes

has been told to resume training up in Brisbane. Shane Watson hobbled laps on a strained calf

then looked on as several team-mates staked their claim for his place in the starting side to play England on Sunday. The reality is we really haven't got a replacement that can play the role he's been playing so we just have to make a decision based on conditions whether we strengthen the batting or bowling. The most likely replacement Brad Hodge, a centurion earlier in the tournament. If he misses out quicks Mitchell Johnson and Stuart Clark are waiting.

Back home selectors have Queenslander James Hopes on stand-by if Watson's progress flatlines. I'm preparing to play but I'm assuming Shane's injury isn't that bad.

It'll be the first time Australia's met England in a fully-fledged international since their late summer capitulation downunder. That was a good kick in the pants for us and I think we've benefited from losing those games.

This morning England showed signs they haven't, fielding errors punctuated by moments of brilliance against Sri Lanka. COMMENTATOR: Brilliant catch. Sri Lanka kept to 2/35. Kevin Pietersen hit out and gave them hope before his demise triggered a middle-order collapse.

After a rescue mission it left rookie Ravi Bopara needing three off the final delivery. England's semifinal hopes now in limbo. Greg Chappell's coaching stint with India is over, resigning before he was pushed following a failed World Cup campaign. Paul Cochrane, Ten News. Michael Phelps is hard to catch in the pool and he proved just as elusive today away from competition. Security was on hand to try and stop any glimpse of Phelps at the new $17 million AIS testing pool in Canberra where the US superstar and fellow swimmers trialled fast skin-suits for Speedo.

Before the windows were completely blacked out, the cloak-and-dagger tactics continued, looking more like illusionists' tricks as Phelps and co appeared and disappeared. Chelsea and Manchester United have the job in front of them to win through to the Champions League semifinals, a 10-man United going down 2-1 to Roma in Italy and Chelsea held to a 1-1 draw by Spanish side Valencia.

Chelsea went behind after a stunning first-half strike from Darvid Silva. COMMENTATOR: Oh, that's a fantastic goal. One of the goals of the Champions League this season. Didier Drogba's 30th goal of the season

kept Chelsea's hopes for the return leg alive. In Rome, Paul Scholes's 34th-minute dismissal gave United a huge task, made more difficult when Brazilian Tarday netted 10 minutes later.

In the second half Wayne Rooney produced a vital away goal, only to see his team concede again minutes later. Seven Aussies will tee off in tomorrow's US Masters, chasing the dream of becoming our first golfer to wear the fabled green jacket. The odds are looking good too, with five of them ranked in the world's top 20, including a surprisingly relaxed pair of veterans. Sharing a laugh with a mate at the Masters.

Life is good, and as the most experienced of any of the Australians at Augusta this year, Stuart Appleby and Robert Allenby have decided to take a different approach. Just getting rid of all the sideshow and getting rid of the crap that can go along with it and the things that cause pressure, the things that make you tight and tense. My level has stayed the same for long enough now,

it's time that I found another level to move to. And that's the secret. And that only - that doesn't happen on the driving range,

it happens on the golf course. The pair boasts 17 Masters appearances and both achieved their highest finish last year. But neither is satisfied with their results.

And want the answers to Augusta. It seems wherever you venture here in Augusta National you see yet another signature landmark. There is none more special than here at Butler Cabin where the winner on Sunday is presented the famous green jacket. And Robert Allenby says being relaxed this week is his secret to standing in here. Really, just be myself because myself can play some pretty awesome golf.

And when you put too much pressure on yourself to play well, then you have no chance. Nick O'Hern is the first of the Aussies to tee off tomorrow morning, while Aaron Baddeley is the last. The bonus, however - he's playing alongside Tiger. Leigh Diffey, Ten News.

1998 champ Mark O'Meara will be battling history

if wants to add another green jacket to his wardrobe. He won today's par-3 comp but no-one has ever completed the double in the same year. That stat didn't stop South African Rory Sabbatini from having a crack in the annual shoot-out. It looked like he'd sent this pitching wedge way too long

on the 100-metre 7th hole, before gravity took control. (Crowd) Go! Go! Go!

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Rory with the first ace of his careeer, and a bit of love for Augusta National. And for the first time, you'll be able to watch the Masters live

in High Definition, here on Ten from 5:45 tomorrow morning. That's all for now, later in Sports Tonight the Brisbane Lions and St Kilda kick off round two of the AFL. And we check in with the Western Force as they prepare to take on the Canterbury Crusaders in the Super 14.

So how do you become the best mum in Sydney? Well, ask Natasha Croft - the NSW finalist in the Barnardos Mother of the Year awards. Natasha - who has two adopted children - won her Barnardos acclaim because of her devotion to her family and constant care for more than 50 children and babies, many who suffer from drug addiction and neglect.

there is no way I would never come this far in my life. Mrs Croft will take part in the national contest on May 10 where Australia's Mother of the Year will be announced. That's the News at 5:00. I'm Ron Wilson. l'll see you again from the Easter Show on Monday.
