Welcome back. Now with sport, here's Simon Reeve. The AFL's rivalry round continues to throw up some fierce contests. Sydney exerted its dominance over the Lions in Brisbane. Essendon got the better of Carlton in a high-scoring encounter. Fremantle downed the West Coast in the Western Derby.

Jamie, hit it now! Hallelujah plays Hawthorn produced a fourth-quarter surge to beat North Melbourne. The game was in the balance deep in the final term but Ed Barlow gave the Swans some breathing space. COMMENTATOR: That's a gem!

Sydney remains unbeaten at the Gabba since round one in 2004. The Sharks have heaped more misery on Dragons' coach Nathan Brown snatching a golden-point victory from the jaws of defeat at ANZ Stadium overnight. The Dragons led by four with less than two minutes left but couldn't close it out against the surging Sharks. In other games- It took a piece of magic from Greg Bird and Bryson Goodwin to get the Sharks level. COMMENTATOR: Here's a chance for Goodwin. Oh! What a pickup it was! And in extra time, it was winger Luke Covell who kicked the Sharks to victory. The Waratahs have cast aside a week of turmoil to produce their best performance of the Super 14 season. The Tahs downed the Blues at the Sydney Football Stadium to reignite their finals hopes. Those critical of the Tahs for a lack of flair were made to eat their words as New South Wales put on a stellar exhibition of running rugby.

COMMENTATOR: Tuqiri! Fourth try bonus point at long last for the Waratahs!

Where has that side been all year?

Ewen McKenzie's men now sit just one point out of the top four. , well done. In last night's other match the Hurricanes and the Sharks played out a controversial draw. While this morning in South Africa the Cheetahs downed the Reds.

Arsenal took on Premier League rivals Liverpool this morning with a repeat scoreline of their clash just four days ago. The sides again finished locked up at 1-1 as it was in their Champions League quarterfinal clash mid week. But this morning's result hurt the Gunners

effectively ending their tilt at the Premiership. Ian Crouch opened the scoring for Liverpool just prior to half time and while Nicholas Bendtner squared it up early in the second half the Gunners couldn't find the winner they desperately needed. In this morning's other matches - Portsmouth has booked a place in the FA Cup decider for the first time since 1939 after downing West Brom this morning at Wembley. Pompey got home with a second-half goal from Kanu and meets the winner of tomorrow's other semi between Barnsley and Cardiff City. Aussie surfing star Stephanie Gilmour is warming to her task of defending the world title she won last year. Gilmour turned it on to take out the final of the Midori Pro in Newcastle beating reigning junior champion Sally Fitzgibbons in the final. It was a good little battle and I'm glad I came out on top. Gilmore now plans to head home to the Gold Coast for some serious R&R. And best of luck to Aussie boxer Jamie Pittman in his quest for a world boxing title. The kid they call "Mr Business" takes on German Felix Sturm for the WBA Middleweight belt later today in Dusseldorf.

I wonder if Felix Sturm knows Weigo

Wow! I think that is how you end up with a with a broken sturm. bringing stable and mild conditions to the south-east. Patchy rain and showers will persist in WA, due to a surface trough.

And some storm activity... So to the forecasts - Brisbane, mild to warm with a few showers today, continuing for the rest of the week with onshore southeasterly winds. in Sydney, Showers developing this morning

with mild temperatures, lasting until midweek more isolated. Melbourne, fine conditions today, with mild-to-warm temperatures lasting right through the week. In Adelaide, fine with mild-to-warm temperatures today, continuing into the early week, with a possible shower on Wednesday. Perth, just a possible shower today, clearing tomorrow with showers returning in the evening and lasting into Tuesday morning. Fine for the rest of the week. Taking a look around the rest of the country. Canberra, a chance of an afternoon shower today after another chilly start. Hobart, fine, mild and relatively calm conditions for the next four days. And in Darwin, fine weather for the next few days, with afternoon showers returning on Wednesday. Ahead this morning, the 6-year-old boy accused sexually harassing his kindergarten teacher. Is it a legitimate claim, or simply ridiculous? But after the break, building the next Disneyland. Why the world's biggest theme park could be coming to Melbourne.

Welcome back. Let's take a look at what's making papers around the country. Melbourne is set to build a $220 million theme park according to the Sunday 'Herald Sun'. It's to be called African Safari World set in the grounds of Werribee Open Range Zoo. Roller-coasters and thrilling rides

Roller coasters are very African,

The paper has consulted several fashion experts for their opinion of Kevin Rudd's wife. Some of the comments include "simply but stylish" and "it works". But that's where the compliments end. The experts also complain many of her outfits are "ill fitting" and "over the top". Let us know what you think.

She is obviously, Queenslanders love

so here's another one from News Limited. Erica Baxter made a rare public appearance on Friday outside her Bondi home. The 30-year-old was showing a sizeable bump.

ANDREW O'KEEFE: Is the sun about to set on solariums? As the States toughen their laws, there are calls for a complete ban.

brilliant, you

brilliant, you nailed it. I brilliant, you nailed it. I thought

it was Russell Crowe. Talitha

looking gorgeous. That story on the four of us

before we joined the Weekend Sunrise family is coming up. Also this morning, the real stars. We'll go to the US to find out why Hollywood is becoming 'Aussiewood'. And how singers are now leading the Australian invasion of America. Speaking of star power, we've got heaps. Nelson goes one-on-one with the Affleck brothers -

We have also got Russell Crowe here. Together, they write, direct and star in the acclaimed new movie 'Gone Baby Gone'. That's later this hour. Right now though, it's time for the latest news with Talitha Cummins. Good morning, Talitha. Good morning. We're leading our news this Sunday with that massive blaze in New Zealand.

One firefighter has now died and two others are in a critical condition after the Hamilton cold storage facility erupted in flames. One witness described it as a like nuclear bomb going off. A series of thunderous explosions ripped through the refrigerated warehouse. EXPLOSION Dozens of firefighters were called to put out the inferno. Put some water on it, man! Nearby residents got out quickly fearing the fire ball would reach their homes. My mother rang - she was quite distressed. She heard a huge explosion and the windows blew out so they got out as quick as they could. Firefighters were responding to reports of gas fumes coming from IcePak Coolstores. When they kicked down a door, the building exploded. Eight firemen were rushed to hospital with burns.

Senior station officer Derek Lovell died. Two of his colleagues are in a critical condition. The coolstore was left to burn overnight - thick black smoke is still billowing. Water supplies are now dwindling. Fire crews have resorted to draining local pools. The cause of the blast is being investigated. Police are worried more retail outlets may be at risk after news broke of a national contamination scare involving meat products. Pieces of metal up to 6cm long were discovered in uncooked, prepacked frozen products at Coles, Woolworths and BI-LO stores in three States. We don't believe there is any intent to harm anybody - more to alarm. But we would like people to become vigilant. Potentially affected products have been removed from supermarket shelves. Victoria Police will continue the search today Prime Minister Kevin Rudd says he hasn't decided whether to attend the Beijing Olympics in August. Mr Rudd is in London today and heads to China on Wednesday as part of a 17-day world tour.

Chinese President Hu Jintao invited the Mandarin-speaking Labor leader to the Olympics when they met at APEC last year. The PM says his decision will be based on matters of practicality and timing, not matters of principle such as Tibet. has arrived in London this morning. Meantime, the Olympic Torch

But it's expected to be met by thousands of angry protesters condemning China's crackdown in Tibet. Four activists have been arrested after abseiling off the Westminster Bridge and unfurling a 'Free Tibet' banner. The torch had a welcome reception at its last destination, the Russian city of St Petersburg, where thousands of spectators cheered it through the streets. Zimbabwe's Opposition leader has accused President Robert Mugabe of waging a war against the people. Morgan Tsvangirai claimed outright victory overnight, and says

there's no need for a run-off. His party will launch a new legal bid for the immediate release of last week's election results

after the commission said it will release them when it's ready. One of Canada's most historic buildings has been reduced to a smouldering ruin the Quebec City Armoury. after fire ripped through

The building was built in 1884 and was the home of Canada's oldest French infantry regiment and a museum. The cause is being investigated. And singer Beyonce Knowles has reportedly married her long-time boyfriend rapper Jay-Z in New York. The pair apparently applied for a marriage licence just days before the private wedding ceremony and lavish party, attended by family and a host of celebrities. The musical duo have been together since 2002, but have never officially confirmed their romance. overnight in some States, And the clocks went back an hour

marking the end of daylight saving. Australia's east is now on the same time zone again. Everyone in NSW, the ACT, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia was blessed with an extra hour of sleep unless you're one of the many shift workers who've written to us. In that case, you worked an extra hour.

That is a little bit unfair. Always

someone misses out. It didn't work

for me, I have puffy eyes but I'll

try. You are

try. You are still handsome. Thank

you. Stop talking about me! Despite the ray of hope offered by the acquisition of Chris Judd, Carlton is still anchored to the bottom of the AFL table. The Blues loss to Essendon last night gave them an unwanted slice of history equalling the club record of 14 straight losses. In other games, Sydney continued their dominance over Brisbane, Fremantle claimed bragging rights in the western derby

Hallelujah plays There it goes again. and Hawthorn finished too strongly for North Melbourne. The Kangaroos led for most of the match at Telstra Dome, but Hawthorn steamed home in the final quarter booting 6 goals to 1 to run out 16-point winners.

The Gold Coast's new home ground is fast becoming a fortress. The Titans made it 3 from 3 at Skilled Park, taking care of the Raiders overnight. In other games, the Sharks edged past the Dragons in golden point and the Cowboys belted the Eels in Townsville. Titans were always in control against the Raiders, but the win was soured somewhat by an ugly incident involving Michael Weyman and Daniel Conn.

You have king hit the bloke, go! Weyman was sent from field while Conn was left nursing several nasty head cuts.

Hear more about that one during the week. The Waratahs are back in the race for the Super 14 finals after stunning the highly-touted Blues last night.

The Tahs turned it on at the Sydney Football Stadium, humbling their All-Black laden opponents on the way to a four-try bonus point. Outgoing coach Ewen McKenzie has been under fire for his side's dour style of play, but the New South Welshman responded in the best possible fashion.

COMMENTATOR: Go all the way, running

COMMENTATOR: Go all the way, running

50 metres. Don't get in his way! The Tahs are now just 1 point away from the fourth placed Chiefs. In last night's other match, the Sharks remained unbeaten, playing out a controversial draw with the Hurricanes, while this morning in South Africa accounted for the Reds. Defending champion Adam Scott has succumbed to illness and pulled out of the Houston Open. Scott was tied for the lead following an opening round 63, but struggled in the second round, shooting a 4 over 76. The Queenslander is suffering from fever and swollen glands. Adam Scott may have pulled the pin, but Geoff Ogilvy is flying the Aussie flag with gusto in Houston.

Ogilvy tore up Redstone in the third round, carding a 6 under 66 to move to 10 under for the tournament, within five shots of leader Johnson Wagner. Arsenal's Premier League title charge is as good as over, following a draw with Liverpool this morning. The Gunners now sit 5 points behind leaders Manchester United,

who are away to Middlesbrough tomorrow. In other games, Portsmouth has booked a place in the FA Cup decider for the first time since 1939, after downing West Brom this morning at Wembley. Pompey will meet the winner of tomorrow's other semi between Barnsley and Cardiff City.

We know what happened after

Portsmouth won in 1989, World War II

started so let's hope it is better

this time. Well, Kevin Rudd is in

town, we could have a diplomatic

incident with Therese's outfits.

Sam, be good. Keep sticking it in...

They could have that down

They could have that down at African Safari World in Melbourne?

Is it trash TV, or a public service? But next, the call to ban solariums altogether. Have your say when we come back.

I love the feeling of a professional cleaning. I told my dentist I wished it could last in between visits. You know what he told me? "It can." Introducing Colgate Total Professional Weekly Clean - a concentrated toothpaste with a prophy-silica formula containing the same cleaning ingredient dentists use. Brush with it once a week in addition to regular brushing. So I can keep this clean feeling in between visits. Colgate Total - now in a Professional Weekly Clean. NEWSREEL: The Leaning Tower of... VOICEOVER: Builder does a dodgy job? That's not a big deal. Holden turns 60. Now, THAT'S a big deal. like LX 4x4 Turbo Diesel Crew Cab from only $33,990 plus on-road costs. Western Australia has become the latest State to crack down on solariums. Under 18s and the fair skinned are now prohibited from using them there. The laws follow similar moves in Victoria and South Australia. So should solariums be banned altogether? Professor Ian Olver is from the Cancer Council. Professor, good morning. Is this a step in the right direction?

I think so. These things provided a

danger to people who use them. And

we want to try to encourage people

to know the risks of using sularia.

Okay, now the penalties in Western

Australia are lighter than those in

Victoria and South Australia, who

has got it right? Which states? I

think in Western Australia they use

radiation safety penalties which were $

We will update the poll throughout the the show. Now here's Andrew. The Queen's husband remains in hospital this morning after a pneumonia scare. Prince Philip has spent the past two nights under the care of one of Britain's top doctors. Dickie Arbiter is a royal correspondent and he joins us now from London. Good morning.

a group of Vietnam veterans finally received their rightful recognition more than four decades late. They were all members of the RAAF Transport Flight squadron. During the war the Americans dubbed them 'Wallaby Airlines' for their amazing work. But as you'll see bureaucracy prevented them from being rewarded -

until now.

Music plays This story is like something out of an action movie. And these are the heroes - just don't call them that. We worked with the Americans and they showed us what they wanted us to do. John Staal is humble about his role

as a pilot in the Vietnam War. He was a member of the small RAAF Transport Flight squadron. Dubbed 'Wallaby Airlines' by the Americans, they became known as the can-do crew. The Aussies landed on airstrips others wouldn't touch. We would drop the cargo out the back. Either low level, 6 foot off the ground, two tonnes, or if we had a bigger paddock, we'd drop cows in there and pigs. That's right - pigs really did fly. You were 23 years old, doing this incredible job -

were there any moments when you were frightened? Yes, you do have dreams about it and you think about it and you have close shaves, but you get on and do the job. Brian Richards was an aircraft load master.

It was an adventure, I suppose - it was boys own. It's something that a lot of people don't get to do. That was way back in the '60s. Now, after so much lobbying these amazing gentlemen have finally been recognised - 40 years late. It is our great honour to congratulate this distinguished group of Vietnam veterans from the Royal Australian Air Force. 89 members received US air medals this week. No small reward. America offered them years ago, but the Australian Government said no - bureaucracy at its worst. The man who finally cut through the red tape is fellow squadron member Ron Workman. From my point of view, it's come to fruition and to just stand up there and look down there

it's an honour to see those guys honoured. The plaque being dedicated this afternoon records for all time that over eight years of it operation Wallaby Airlines flew 81,000 sorties, totalling 44,000 flying hours, carrying 680,000 passengers and 46 million kilos of cargo

with six aircraft. Now, even the US President has signed off. And how does that make you feel? Well, we feel absolutely wonderful about that. It gives you goose bumps. This year, Anzac Day will have added significance. The Wallaby Airlines crew will be able to march with one new medal. 'THE LAST POST' PLAYS

Just in time for Anzac Day.

Fantastic. That was a nice story.

Very nice. Thank you. I like the bit

where the gentleman with the big

And just before 9:00, our exclusive with the Affleck brothers. Nelson talks to Ben and Casey about their new movie 'Gone Baby Gone'. First, the headlines with Talitha.

Well, it is just

Well, it is just wloung Good morning again, everyone. A New Zealand firefighter has died and seven others are injured, after a series of explosions tore through a Hamilton refrigeration warehouse. One witness likened the blast to a nuclear bomb going off. Police believe a food contamination scare across Australia is deliberate.

Pieces of metal up to 6cm in length were discovered in pre-packed meat and frozen foods at Coles, Woolworths and BI-LO stores in Queensland, NSW and Western Australia. And Kevin Rudd says he still hasn't decided whether to attend the Beijing Olympics but the PM insists

it'll depend on matters of practicality and timing, not matters of principle such as Tibet. The Olympic torch arrived in London this morning as Pro-Tibetan activists prepared to disrupt the relay. And making sports headlines this morning - The Swans have maintained their dominance over the Lions in Brisbane, scoring a tenacious 17-point win at the Gabba overnight. The visitors were in control from the outset and haven't tasted defeat in Brisbane since round one of the 2004 season. Geoff Ogilvy has surged up the leaderboard during the third round of the Houston open this morning.

Ogilvy carded a 6-under 66 to move to 10 under, five behind co-leaders Chad Campbell and Johnson Wagner. Adam Scott was force to withdraw this morning through illness. And the Waratahs are back in the frame for a Super 14 finals berth after an impressive win over the Blues at the Sydney Football Stadium. The Tahs collected a four-try bonus point and are now only 1 point behind the fourth placed Chiefs.

at some point. It's been a big week for Kevin Rudd. He's been labelled the sheriff for that salute to George W. Bush. It seems the PM can't get enough of the leader of the free world. While he's been out of the country,

On his listening tour. his political foe has been travelling around it. the Coalition's popularity? So is that helping

This week began with Brendan Nelson sending voters a yoo-hoo on YouTube. G'day, it's Brendan Nelson here.

# I say weren't you listening? The electorate is not listening to him

so he thought he'd go out and listen to the electorate. I'm in the process of going through Australia on a listening tour and that means I want to hear what you've got to say. Ah, that's what a listening tour means?

I look forward to seeing you,

and if you see me, sing out and say g'day. And people did.

Yeah, sometimes it's better to listen than to speak. Hah, women. They all look the same. Jess doesn't exactly look impressed. On to a school. (Laughs) At least, HE's enjoying himself. Hey, guys!

Good luck! They think YOU need the luck. (Laughs) And he wanted the listening tour public to hear

that he's no easy-listening guy. Yeah, I got four fender strats now... Oh, you are a muso. ..and my wife thinks I've got two, so get it back to her. You've got four guitars? Yep, Brendan the guitar rock god. I've got one in my Canberra office, one in my Sydney office,

I've got one at home, I've got one in the car. In the car? What, you play at the traffic lights? Beats picking your nose, I guess. But he won't play any of them in public. There's nothing more pathetic than politicians trying to play their musical instruments publicly. Oh, yes there is. And when it comes to travelling with the 'Kevinator' from downtown Bucharest to here in the core of the Big Apple -

gotta zip - to the working families in Brussels -

# Rocking all over the world # what a stunning place - we watched, as the Kevinator made a name for himself. But not always the right name. Tonight is my honour to represent the United States Government in welcoming you Mr Prime Minister Rude - Rudd. And they weren't so sure about his wife's name either. I would like to extend a very warm welcome to Prime Minister Rudd and his wife 'Terez'. But he is making a big name for himself with the policy wonks with stunning statements like this... But one key is to encourage China's active participation efforts to maintain, develop and become integrally engaged

in global and regional institutions, structures and norms. ..and this... There is a declaration in the public declaration of this conference to continue our resolve in that direction which is reflected further in the substanted operational clauses of the internal strategy. ..and this. These things are always normally transacted, can I say, in multiple iterations with multiple officials as everyone gets, basically, the Rubik's cube together to work out who's where, when. But if his words weren't too clear, his actions certainly were. First, appearing like little boy lost on the world stage at the NATO Summit then spying a familiar face across the room. Must be someone really important. But just which superior would the Kevinator salute so reverently to? Did somebody say Deputy Sheriff? It's just, ah, it's just a joke. (laughs) The, ah, the, ah - I was just saying hi to the President of the United States. I was just with him the other day. But now you look like you're with him all the way. All hail the chief.

It wasn't a bad gag, really. Was it?

If you were saying hello to Winston

Churchilyou would do that. And the chief has moved on to London this morning. His foot soldier, Riles, is there. Good morning.

I'm doing well. He is getting a lot

of flack, which the Channel 7

cameramen caught I must say. A bit of a

of a gag. Kevin Rudd is saying it is

just something he does, it is

his idio sinkeracies and people get

get over it, it is just a joke but the Labor Party

the Labor Party had a bash at John

Howard for being in their Howard for being in their eyes,

subservient to President Bush in the

war and Kevin Rudd is over there

trying to build his own

relationships and the gesture was perhaps

perhaps ill timed. Can you imagine

if it was John Howard saluteing

if it was John Howard saluteing to President Bush? I think there would

President Bush? I think there would be quite an outcry about that as

well. But we will get beyond it well. But we will get beyond it and

(People chatter) WOMAN: Come on, sweetheart. Did you have fun? Mum, what does 'spoilt' mean? No. VOICEOVER: It will spoil up to seven lucky people. It can carry your whole life. SONG: # Zoom, zoom, zoom... # At Continental, we love how every day is different. And we love how dinner brings a family together. That's why we've created a whole range of new side dishes so you can turn any day into: Continental - because family mealtimes matter. Welcome back. Our Movie of the Week sees one of Hollywood's leading men move behind the camera. 'Gone Baby Gone' is the directorial debut of Ben Affleck. And he's keeping it in the family. The film stars his brother, Casey Affleck. Our Nelson Aspen met them both for this exclusive. Nelson, good morning. Hi, guys. Well, you've probably heard about this movie for months thanks to the Oscar buzz and all the other award nominations it received. It premiered here in the States back in October and now it's finally coming Down Under to Australian audiences. FILM FOOTAGE: Blane puts her to bed. She goes across to Dotti's and she comes home and Amanda is gone. Who would take my little girl? She never hurt anybody. 'Gone Baby Gone' is a family affair - the movie stars Casey Affleck and his brother Ben is director. Great, cut. I could be the lost Affleck brother. You might be, yes. What is the dynamic - you're the director, you're the Oscar winner, you're the older one. Are you the alpha brother? Oh, I don't think so. You can see Casey's enormously talented. Um, we don't operate in hierarchical terms in our family.

We are a communist family, the Affleck family. So there's none of that birth-order business? No, no, we don't do hierarchy, we do sharing. When you and Ben were growing up did you make movies, was he out there directing you? Ah, that would be a good story. No, we were never out there making movies, I mean, there weren't really video cameras when we were kids, for one thing - or not that we ever saw. So we were just kids, kind of just running around on the street playing football, baseball. No-one was making movies. If it turns out you're lying I'm gonna bribe cops to go after you and I'm going to tell everyone I know that you're a rat, and I know a lot of people. Casey plays a private detective investigating the disappearance of a young girl. It's alright, we're going to find here. (Sobbing) You have to promise. Amy Ryan co-stars as the missing girl's mother. The role earned her an Academy Award nomination. Promise, you have to promise me. I promise. Who is this woman that you created - did you know her from somewhere? No, but you know what? An actor can only be as good as the writing. I swear to you this was on the page of Ben Affleck's screenplay and taken from Dennis Lehane's novel - it's in the writing. I started from there. And other than that, just getting the technical side of it -

just getting that Boston accent. You had to take a polygraph? I already took one. Completing the cast are Hollywood veterans Ed Harris and Morgan Freeman. I know what it feels like to lose a child. This child is all I care about. This is a crime thriller based on the novel by 'Mystic River' author Dennis Lehane. I love books like this. This is the kind of juicy thing you could get into on a rainy weekend and that's how the movie struck me. Basically, on a simple plot level, I thought it was terrific. And there were these incredible twists and surprises to it that really grabbed me but still felt realistic.

The characters were interesting and compelling but complicated, you know - they weren't oversimplified. And
