Doctors are now fighting a key plan to improve medical standards. might end up exposing more patients to poor care. One was dubbed the Butcher of Bega, the other Dr Death. Both doctors giving the medical profession a bad name for their appalling treatment of patients. The cases prompting the Government to develop a national scheme expected to be signed off on at tomorrow's COAG meeting with State and Territory leaders. We don't want a person who might be deregistered in one State able to sneak through the system in another State. But already the plan is under attack from the powerful doctors' lobby group. We do need to do things better than we have been but the COAG model of national registration

actually may reduce quality and safety for patients. The AMA wants doctors to have the ability to practise interstate but is totally opposed to giving the Federal Government control over who should be allowed to practise. If you have a national registration system, in actual fact there won't be double-checking when doctors cross borders. But just two weeks ago,

the AMA joined nine other health organisations in signing a letter supporting such a scheme. The Nurses' Federation and General Practice Network say the national move is essential to improving patient safety. If you have one system nationally, it's got to be better than having eight separate systems

for each of the nine professions. Kevin Rudd will provide another much-needed health injection at tomorrow's summit - $158 million over five years to clear hospitals of elderly patients taking up acute care beds. The move designed to shift 2,000 elderly patients into more suitable nursing home care. Leonie Mellor, Ten News. Pressure is mounting on the State Government to admit legal liability over the 'Butcher of Bega' case. The move would spare victims years of litigation, while acknowledging the Government was negligent in hiring the obstetrician when he was banned. The victims have begun coming forward to document their cases ahead of legal action against the State Government. They were all treated by Dr Graeme Reeves who allegedly mutilated some women during surgery. Other victims claim they were treated inappropriately during examinations. But now lawyers say it's time for the Government to clear legal obstacles and admit liability. The admission of liability is to do with allowing the opportunity to arise

so that Dr Reeves could actually practise in the Bega Valley.

They argue the State Government was clearly at fault by employing Reeves between April 2002 and July 2003 when he had been barred from obstetrics by the Medical Board. Lawyers for the victims want to settle these compensation claims without going through the courts. They believe mediation would reduce the legal costs and the trauma for Dr Reeves's former patients. The Opposition is backing the call for an admission of liability. These women have been through enough. They shouldn't have to suffer further delays from a heartless State Government. The Government says Health Minister Reba Meagher and its lawyers The end of this has got to be a therapeutic outcome and, on the way, all the legal obstacles that would normally be there need to be removed. Lawyers say mediation could see the cases concluded in 18 months, instead of up to five years if the victims are forced to fight the Government in the courts. John Hill, Ten News. There are growing concerns about the Olympic torch's relay run in Canberra. Federal police will meet with Tibet supporters tomorrow to make sure planned protests don't get out of control, like they did in Greece last night. Seen worldwide as a symbol of peace, the sacred Olympic flame has now turned into a moving target. Covered in blood-red paint, pro-Tibet demonstrators threw themselves on the streets of ancient Olympia into the path of the Beijing-bound torch. Earlier, protesters breached a police cordon to run behind the Chinese envoy with a banner showing the five Olympic rings as handcuffs. The footage never made it onto Chinese television - cutting away to calmer, more choreographed parts of the ceremony. The IOC says the protests won't provide momentum for a boycott. The torch is the link between all athletes and citizens of this world.

It has the force to unite humanity and to stand for harmony. But, protesters believe, not at this Olympics. Instead of the world changing China, China is changing the world, dragging it in the direction of oppression. Hundreds are being killed in Tibet right now by the Chinese Government. More protests are likely, with activists all over the world expected to continue targeting the torch route, the longest and most ambitious relay ever planned, and now guarded by the tightest security. Free Tibet! Free Tibet! Danielle Isdale, Ten News.

Sport with Tim Webster, the Olympic dream of swim sensation Emily Seebohm has come true. Yes, and her mother can take a large chunk of the credit. Mum Karen was sent on a mercy dash just half an hour before Emily's race, after the 15-year-old sensation she'd torn a hole in her swimsuit with her fingernails. Team Seebohm celebrates. Emily is off to the Olympics.

You guys must be the proudest parents in Australia tonight. Yeah. Oh, we're feeling pretty good. We'd be pretty close if we weren't. Absolutely. Her ticket to Beijing booked in Commonwealth record time. COMMENTATOR: The 15-year-old has done it. It almost didn't happen. bit of a hole in it. Yeah, I don't think I could race in that. Karen started running back to the team hotel to grab another one. On the way, she tracked down a spare suit, on the pool deck. We got it on in 15 minutes so I was like, "Yeah, record, record in itself!" The nerves calmed, Emily chased her Olympic dream. And coming up first was Seebohm. Her time - less than half a second off the world record. how you live up to that. Like, I don't know anything else that feels the same. It's probably like a little kid going to Dreamworld, but better. Yeah, it's like Dreamworld, plus plus plus. It's another reminder that Emily's still just a kid herself - the baby of the Aussie swim team, churning out adult performances. Kids my age go, "Wow, you're fast!" "Yeah, I am, aren't I?" And I'm like, She's very competitive. I mean, she comes from a family with three brothers so she had to keep up or miss out. This time, that wasn't an option. Paul Cochrane, Ten News.

The security guard quickly reversed back through the boom gates, foiling the robbery. Police later recovered the torched getaway car in nearby Lilyfield. Explosive claims tonight

against the suspect in one of Sydney's most sickening crimes. He's gone on trial, accused of tying up teenager Lauren Huxley, attacking her with fibro cutters, then dousing her with petrol. The Huxley family arrive at court, looking for justice. In November 2005, daughter Lauren was bashed, bound, doused in fuel

and left for dead in the garage of her family's Northmead home. She was attacked after getting off a bus on her way home from TAFE. Today, Sydney carpenter Robert Black Farmer stood accused of the crime. In the prosecution's opening address, it was alleged he savagely assaulted Lauren with large metal fibro cutters. Lauren was left fighting for her life, with fractures, lacerations, chemical burns, bruising and brain damage so severe she will not be called to give evidence. Lauren's plight touched the hearts of many - friends, family and the community banding together to provide support for her ongoing rehabilitation. The trial is expected to last 12 weeks. Gabrielle Boyle, Ten News. Criminals could soon be caught with a police version of YouTube. then send mobile phone pictures Witnesses are being urged to take, to a special police website. But the system comes with a warning. The long arm of the law is reaching out for your mobile phone and its built-in camera. Police want anyone who witnesses a crime to video it and upload it onto a police website. This is about the future, in taking technology and making it easier for people to come forward with that information of what they observe. But they warn, you get involved at your own risk, and there are no special financial rewards. And it doesn't come cheap. The YouTube-style police website will cost $8 million to set up. Mobile phone footage has already been used as evidence in criminal cases, sometimes shot by bystanders. Other times, perpetrators video their own criminal activity. Police hope footage will help them prosecute everything from minor offences and assaults to terrorism. But legal experts say that if the video evidence is to be useful in a prosecution people will have to be prepared to leave their personal details and even give evidence in court. A picture is worth a thousand words but without a voice it cannot be used in court or, indeed, anywhere else. Civil libertarians warn anonymous footage would be difficult to authenticate, and may even be doctored to frame innocent people. But clearly photographs and films will assist the court in determining exactly what happened without having to rely on memory so much, and that's a good thing. It's not yet known

The quoll is among 10 native species scientists fear global warming will kill off within decades. Could Australian species go the way of the dinosaurs? Absolutely - they're on that pathway right now.

Australia already has the highest rate of mammal extinction in the world. But just a half-degree increase in temperatures by mid-century will tip threatened species,

But saving these little creatures won't take much, just a little bit of political will. WWF wants governments to increase reserve areas and fund more feral animal control programs. Emily Rice, Ten News. An American man has stunned relatives who'd gathered to pay their last respects. Doctors were preparing to remove his organs for transplants when he suddenly showed signs of life. Now he's back from the dead. Zack Dunlap remembers nothing of the motorbike accident that almost cost him his life four months ago. I remember a little bit that was about an hour before the accident happened. The 21-year-old, however, does remember hearing doctors declare him dead after scans showed there was no blood reaching his brain. I'm glad I couldn't get up and do what I wanted to do. With no obvious signs of life, Zack's family consented for his organs to be harvested for donation and they gathered to say goodbye. Hoping for a last-minute miracle, his cousin ran a pocketknife across Zack's foot, and there was a response. Makes me thankful that they didn't give up. PRESENTER: Thank goodness, right? Don't let the good die young. 48 days later he left hospital and returned to his home town in Oklahoma. Zack still struggles with memory loss and it may take more than 12 months for his brain to fully recover.

At 257 centimetres tall, or 8 foot five inches in the old scale, he doesn't need to do a lot of body building but his 200-kilogram frame causes a lot of leg pain. An engineer has designed a giant exercise machine, and the 37-year-old has been working out in the backyard of the home he shares with his mother in a Ukrainian village.

A bitter dispute rocks the New South Wales Liberal Party - details next. Also, can TV stars really make the switch to radio? The ratings they've been waiting for, after the break. And it's a long road to Beijing - a local BMX hot shot builds an Olympic track in his own backyard. This program is captioned live. Tonight's major stories - following a high-profile protest. Tibetan activists targeted the lighting of the torch overnight at Olympia, in Greece. Local protest groups will meet with Federal Police tomorrow to discuss their plans. Sydney petrol stations which shut down premium unleaded bowsers over Easter have been cleared of collusion. The Department of Fair Trading has conducted spot checks and found tanks which had been shut were in fact empty. And a Sydney schoolboy to face court tomorrow morning, charged with the stabbing murder of his father and the wounding of his mother. Police arrested the 16-year-old suspect outside the family home at Baulkham Hills. The boy was wearing his uniform and carrying his schoolbag at the time. The State Liberal Party is embroiled in a bitter factional war. A high-profile Federal MP has been banned from joining his own branch, embarrassing Opposition Leader Brendan Nelson. Scott Morrison is the new federal member for the southern Sydney seat of Cook, but some of his most passionate enemies are fellow Liberals. Supporters like former MP Bruce Baird have branded the move to ban Mr Morrison from his local branch a joke. This is a disaster and it's certainly damaging for the party overall, and they've got to address this issue if they are going to win government next time. Baird, a moderate in the party, blames local right-wingers. The party's State president is also amazed at the petty move. Well, it's certainly highly embarrassing for the Liberal Party, and, equally, it's disappointing for the federal member of parliament himself to have been rejected from membership. But Mr Selig insists a branch will be found for the up-and-coming MP. Federal Opposition Leader Brendan Nelson says the mess highlights the case for reform of party rules. Scott Morrison wasn't available for interview today,

only releasing this statement. But it fails to address the key issue - why so many people in his own electorate, within his own party, don't like him. It's a free kick for Labor. To call the Liberal Party a laughing-stock is generous. The Liberal Party have been taken over by right-wing extremists and this is just another example. The ALP, though, has its own embarrassment today - the sacking of Joe Scimone from a high-paying government job. He is being investigated by the corruption watchdog

over alleged bribes related to the Wollongong Council corruption scandal. Kevin Wilde, Ten News.

More pain for mortgage holders - the National Australia Bank has just increased its variable home loan rate by another nine basis points to 9.36%.

Petrol prices are also down. As mentioned earlier, stations which shut down premium unleaded bowsers over Easter Sydney's cheapest price - $133.9 at Guildford.

More about the freshwater fair and some

some good news about the weather. One of Australia's leading BMX riders has gone to extraordinary lengths to qualify for the Olympic Games. Luke Madill has taken a little bit of Beijing back home to Penrith. Luke Madill's backyard has an Olympic BMX racing track. It's a replica of the Beijing track. Its centrepiece - an 8m starting ramp, the only one of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and one of just four in the world, a boy's own adventure come true. When I was younger, growing up, I just had a few different jumps and things like that, but to have a full-scale track, it's pretty impressive, even now. It's around 350m long and took six months to build on the Madill family's 6.5-acre property. These ramps are no place for the faint-hearted. We're three storeys up, and during the Olympics

eight riders will charge down one of these at the same time. And you could forgive Luke if he found it a little daunting. Two years ago his riding career very nearly ended when a training jump went horribly wrong. I ended up landing on my head and breaking my back in three places

and had a blood clot in my spinal column in my neck, so they weren't sure how I was gonna recover from that.

But after seven months of rehab, 27-year-old Luke was back on his bike.

He's now ranked number five in the world, that ramp a constant reminder and, even better, he only has to step out the back door to ride it. It just feels smaller every time I walk up it and, you know, that kind of fear's gone away and I can just concentrate on the race ahead and the job I have to do. Leanne West, Ten News. Sport now with Tim, and things are getting nasty between the Sharks and Melbourne Storm. Yes, a real falling-out - he's a thug. Ben Ross hits back at claims Plus, the Bulldogs axe Reni Maitua and the Eels recall Tim Smith. Also, where's the padding? Matt Cooper somehow escapes serious injury. And the 15-year-old who survived a ripped cossie to power her way to Beijing. SAW GRINDS (Whistles) Hey! Like the flame-grilled flavour of a Bacon Deluxe It's more than a real handful.

Not surprisingly, Melbourne halfback to help Cronulla's Ben Ross at the judiciary tomorrow night. Ross became emotional today when he insisted his elbow to Cronk's head was an accident. Looking more ballerina than brute Ben Ross is hurt at being labelled a thug. People come out and saying I'm a thug and it was a cheap shot, how can you call it a cheap shot when it was an accident? Ross faces a 6-match ban, but will argue he didn't hit Cooper Cronk with full force. It was an accident - it totally went wrong. I just hope they see it wasn't intent. I mean, why would I want to break...? If I wanted to break his jaw it would have been broken. It's just a clear example of someone getting hit late and getting hit high. It's now up to the judiciary to try and set an example and try and stamp someone out. But the Sharks are blaming Brett White's barrage of blows for magnifying the incident. White is seeking a reduction in his grade four striking charge.

I think if Brett White hadn't have got up and king-hit him there wouldn't have been this much uproar about it. Gallen furious at White's attack, the pair set to be NSW Origin team-mates in two months time. If you're going to fight someone, give him a push, then fight toe to toe. Don't just come and king-hit from the side and then king-hit him when some bloke's got both his arms. I think what he did was no better than what Rossy did at all. Also at the judiciary will be Brisbane fullback Karmichael Hunt. It's about justice, I suppose. We believe he's not guilty and therefore he shouldn't have that on his record. Last night the WIN Stadium fence was lucky to escape a judiciary appearance after this hit on Matt Cooper. COMMENTATOR: Oh, hit a brick wall! But he won't mind, because he gets his second try of the night. Cooper was uninjured. The Dragons beat the Gold Coast 30-12. Adam Hawse, Ten News. In other league news, Parramatta halfback Tim Smith has been recalled to the side following an off-season embroiled in controversy. But the Bulldogs have stood down lock Reni Maitua for having an attitude problem. Reni Maitua dropped again, and again because of an off-field misdemeanour involving alcohol.

This time Maitua was out partying on Easter Sunday morning, reportedly drunk at 9:30am. The fact that he was out at that time of the morning

suggests to me that he's not 100% committed to doing his best for this club. Being out at that time is not conducive to your best performance, physically or mentally.

Maitua's a serial offender, but the Bulldogs refuse to say this is his last chance. Instead they were defending eyewitness reports that he was involved in a physical fight. He had a disagreement, a verbal disagreement, How it became a punch-up, I've got no idea. Another with multiple crosses next to his name, Tim Smith - the Parramatta half-back returning to first grade

The pre-race smile hiding a whirlpool of emotions - a replacement racing suit found for Commonwealth record holder Emily Seebohm with only half an hour to spare, almost as much time it takes to put one on. The 15-year-old somehow composed herself, broke her own Commonwealth mark and stormed her way onto the Olympic team. It was, yeah, it pumped me up a lot, more than I needed, actually. It really reminds you she has maturity beyond her years when she competes. But every now and then she does let you know she's still 15. Elation too for veteran Sophie Edington - she'd missed the Games by 1/100th of a second four years ago. A changing of the guard in the men's backstroke - Ashley Delaney and Hayden Stoeckel relegated Matt Welsh to third. This meet will be his last. It probably hasn't really hit me hard yet, but it's also a long time coming. Leisel Jones and former training partner Tarnee White both qualified for the women's 100 breaststroke, while a very familiar face stood poolside to watch the closest 200m freestyle finish in years - Grant Hackett and home-town favourite Kenrick Monk first and second, delighting a legion of Monk fans. Even my principal from my old school came out. I even got a message from him. I knew it was him because it was and I thought, "There can only be one person who's writing this," and it had to be my principal. Hackett won't swim in the race instead concentrating on his distance events. Anthony Goodridge, Ten News. Australian golfer Geoff Ogilvy has tamed the Tiger. In his first victory since the 2006 US Open, Ogilvy stopped Woods from claiming his seventh consecutive title. The Aussie won the C.A. Championship by a stroke from Vijay Singh, Retief Goosen and Jim Furyk.

Tiger was two shots back. With a one-shot lead, nine holes to play and the cream of world golf breathing down his neck, Geoff Ogilvy could have been excused for having some nerves, especially when Tiger Woods is within striking distance. COMMENTATOR: And there's a start. This birdie at 12 of the Australian, his lead looking very shaky when he fluffed his chip at the 13th, but showed Tiger-like poise to pull of a brilliant recovery. Now Ogilvy's third at 13. APPLAUSE No problem.

The shot revived memories of Ogilvy's chip shot that won him the US Open at the 71st hole at Winged Foot. Adam Scott, though, went in the other direction Nick O'Hern's closing round of 63 earn him sixth spot. Tiger showing signs of frustration as he tried to challenge Ogilvy but came up short. Did you have a number in mind when you teed it up this morning? Yeah, seven in a row would have been good. It wasn't to be - Ogilvy's resolve ending a drought which had lasted almost two years. The last couple of years have been pretty good off the golf course. We've got that sorted out now, we've got the golf sorted out. It's all pretty good.
