Kevin Rudd is challenging the Prime Minister to call the election now and to spell out his further plans for workers. But John Howard says he has no such intention. A mixed reception for the Prime Minister in Darwin. Can I have a hug? Everybody knows what a liar you are. It's three years to the day since he called the last election. Oh, really? That had passed my attention.

A term dominated by his unannounced revolution in workplace laws, and he's finding it hard to sell. level it's been in 35 years.

Let's have a debate now - on our plans for industrial relations for the future. We don't have any changes in mind except for any fine-tuning. The Labor leader is challenging the Prime Minister to call the election on the third anniversary of the last poll. No, no, I have no intention of doing that. Kevin Rudd's re-arrangement of his policy have left the union representing Australia's lowest-paid workers disappointed and angry.

That story next. Also tonight, cheers and jeers for the PM, selling his Indigenous policies in the Top End. And total eclipse - the heavenly rarity occurring only once in a red moon.

Most Australians think Mr Howard's WorkChoices laws have gone too far, cutting basic rights like overtime, penalty rates, leave loadings - not to mention job security. And so I've been talking to business and to working families across Australia because I'm determined to get the balance right. I believe in two core principles.

One, flexibility for business to keep our economy strong. Two, every working man and woman deserves to be treated fairly in the workplace. If elected, we'll replace Mr Howard's WorkChoices laws and his unfair AWAs with a better system. We'll protect the fair and reasonable rights and conditions of all employees. But we'll also provide flexibility for business, including small business, and give protection from any unlawful interference. The key thing is to get the balance right

to go confidently into the future with a strong economy, but one that also delivers... for Australian working families. Come on! Where are we going?

This program is captioned live. A northern beaches schoolteacher who allegedly filmed up the skirt of a teenage girl has appeared in court on two new indecency charges. Robert Ian Drummond is accused of producing and possessing child pornography, including a tape of the 14-year-old,

which police say was shot at Warringah Mall using a hidden camera. An earlier search of the 41-year-old's Harbord home allegedly revealed indecent film of up to 3,000 women. Drummond, who's facing a total of four charges, has been bailed to reappear in September.

An Aboriginal elder has been jailed for eight years for giving girls petrol in exchange for sex. 52-year-old Winkie Ingomar was reported to authorities by other members of his tribal community in SA. He faced multiple charges in relation to three teenage victims. The judge told Ingomar he's damaged his entire community and must serve at least five years. Calls for the Federal Government to subsidise chemotherapy for all patients suffering from the asbestos-related cancer mesothelioma. A new study revealing why up to half of those patients aren't receiving life-saving treatment.

Tony Lorizio was diagnosed with an incurable asbestos-related cancer three years ago. Chemotherapy extended his life, but that treatment isn't available to all mesothelioma patients. It should be available to everybody. Price should not come between life. Life means so much.

Brian Fegan another patient lucky enough

to receive the life-saving treatment. Whether you can afford it

or quietly die because you can't afford it is depended upon which State you live in.

That's absurd. Victoria and Queensland A study revealing patients in SA,

cannot access the newest drugs. But you can in NSW and Western Australia. The report presents an unbelievable situation of unfairness across Australia. I believe every Australian should have access to that gold-standard treatment. The study was funded by pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly Australia and the Asbestos Diseases Foundation. Australia has the unenviable record

of having the highest rate of mesothelioma in the world. By 2020, the number of new cases each year will explode from 600 to 18,000. And that, doctors say, highlights the urgent need for chemotherapy to be available to all mesothelioma patients. If it's available for smokers, why shouldn't it be available for people that are inadvertently exposed to asbestos fibres? Catherine Kennedy, Ten News. The Siberian husky that mauled a 2-week-old baby to death

has been put down. The little girl died in hospital of head injuries after the family pet dragged her from her cot. Her parents were watching television at the time

and thought the dog was outside. Last night they gave permission for the animal to be destroyed. A barrage of verbal abuse for the Prime Minister over his intervention in Top End Aboriginal communities. Protesters dogged John Howard in Darwin.

Just about any park became a lunar park last night. Why just turn your eyes to the sky when you can make it an event? It's a blood moon. It looks like... It's all red. A marvellous night for a moondance or even a doona dance - the eclipse eliciting some strange behaviour. Dogs refused to howl, Bondi Beach backpackers stayed sober as the 3-hour skyshow kept us captivated. 'DARK SIDE OF THE MOON' BY PINK FLOYD PLAYS

When you see something like this, it just makes you realise we're mere mortals. An astronomically qualified mere mortal

explains why it turned red. That's because it's light that's scattered onto the moon from the Earth's atmosphere, and that's what really makes a total eclipse of the moon so exciting. While what we saw with our own eyes was better than the camera can capture, Ten News viewers sent some great snaps in to our website as the Earth got in between the sun and the moon. I see parts of the moon that are white and some that are dark.

That's how the ancient Greeks actually knew the Earth was round and not flat, because no matter how many times they watched an eclipse, the shadow was always curved. One for the diary - it'll all happen again in December 2011.

from the film 'The Great Escape', It may look like something is no wartime route to freedom. but this tunnel The 40ft-long shaft was painstakingly dug by would-be thieves aiming for a cash machine. But their plans were thwarted when builders knocked through the top of the tunnel there at the bottom of the railway embankment, just a few metres short of their target,

which was this cash machine. It's a good size tunnel with good working space in it

without being too large. They were close - to where they wanted to be. they were getting close If they were heading for the cash machines, another couple of days would have seen them there. Builders also say it was a well-constructed piece of tunnelling, protected against collapse. Proper scaffolding was used in the 5ft-high space. But where all the earth went remains a mystery. The tunnel has now been filled in with concrete and police are investigating the attempted burglary. As yet, no arrests have been made over a plot that could have come straight from the movies. A new and fast-growing market has emerged from the housing affordability crisis. Friends and family members are banding together to buy homes that they couldn't afford any other way. For many 20- and 30-somethings sharing-housing is a necessity. But friends Dave and Adrian have taken it a step further. Since May, they've been sharing a mortgage. For what Adrian and I bought pooling our resources I'm really only responsible for half of that, which wouldn't get you a car space. The mates have gone halves in a $350,000 unit -

brand-new, two bedrooms in the Sydney suburb of Alexandria. I think it's just sort of a way of splitting the risk, you know? They're not alone. Pod Property specialises in drafting the legal documents for mortgage-sharing. Every month, we're seeing between a 10%-15% increase in the numbers of people we're helping with co-ownership. High prices and rising interest rates are accelerating the trend.

I think the housing affordability crisis is the main spur. Sharing a mortgage with family or friends is a prospect being considered by more and more people

keen just to get into the market. Lenders too are realising split mortgages are potentially a major growth area. 65% of all people who are considering buying a home are considering buying it with a friend or a family member.

Co-ownership makes up around 10% of home loan applications. In the coming years, that figure could jump to 50%.

I see it growing and growing at a phenomenal pace. Although committing to share a mortgage does have risks,

they're risks many are only too willing to take. Josh Murphy, Ten News.

The Australian share market took a dive today, dragged down by Wall Street.

A revolutionary new device for expectant mums - it's a portable foetal heart monitor which can give vital early warning if something isn't right. Jodie McKenzie's first baby was stillborn. Tiny Jadalee dying in utero at just 30 weeks.

Disbelief, absolute disbelief, when my doctor turned around to me and said "I am sorry". I screamed, I cried, it couldn't have happened. But it does happen, every day.

Kind of not expected, and such a tragedy when it happens, And often there is no explanation. Dr Chris East is part of a Queensland team looking for the reasons why. They're developing a pedometer-like foetal monitor that will detect every little movement, 24 hours a day. Do you know anything that gets Bub moving? No? JR Benelisha is testing a prototype.

She's due to give birth in just three weeks. But is baby OK? We got some good movements here, up in that top left hand corner, so I think that's his arms giving us a bit of a poke. Relief for the expectant parents. So anything that can help with new technology to reduce that risk, I think is fantastic. Researchers expect unborn babies who do not get enough nutrition have fewer movements. The heart monitor will tell them when to intervene. The monitor will eventually be web-based, women uploading data for doctors to check online. Every woman I have talked to go so helpful, I would love that." Too late for Jodie. I think it would have made a difference to me. She's been blessed again though - twice.
