It's absolute chaos. Good morning.

You're a bit befuddled because it's You're a bit befuddled because

all happening. But it's not. As you

may or may not see. Yes. We'll try

to hide the fact it's all happening.

I've got a question for

I've got a question for you. Aren't

you gonna comment on my French maid

outfit? Sometimes I - Friday French

maid. It's best newt go there

sometimes. Why, it's cute. I think

it's quite cute. What is it? We

have got Patricia Field in from

'Sex and the City' so I felt I

needed to look a little. City or

sexy like? Many new employees sexy like? Many new employees lack

basic manners in the workplace and

that etiquette is increasingly

ignored. It's that rude and crude

Generation Y and the sooner we

chuck them out of the work force

the sooner the more sensitive among

us can get back to work. Tracey

Hodgkins believes the problem is a

lack of training. She puts the weirdest collection of clothes

together and turns them in to

fashion statements that absolutely

hit the mark. Perhaps best hit the mark. Perhaps best known

for stylist for 'Sex and the City',

Patricia Field is here to glam us

up. Some of the AFL's finest will

line up this weekend for the annual

Dreamtime at the grbs match. Former

AFL champion Michael Long will take

off on his annual long walk which

brings together all Australians to

create better awareness of

indigenous issues. Michael will

take a rest with us before he

straps on the sneakers. Dicko will straps on the sneakers. Dicko will

be with us to talk about 'Shine A

Light', the Rolling Stones movie

that puts you on the stage.

Got my eyedrops. I've gat

conjunctivitis. Excellent . If it

looks like I'm crying, I just can't

stop my eye watering. Patricia

Field is in. I went to her shop. I went on the 'Sex and the City' bus

tour through the streets of New

York. In your other York. In your other life. I was the

only man on the bus. If you're a

single guy that would have been a

fairly good thing to do. We went to

her store which was remarkable. Had

all the really out there stuff from

the program and just basically out

there fashion stuff, including the

fake nipple. Oh, yes. She sold fake

nipples. That were perky all the time. That were

time. That were cold. Isn't that

odd? That was an odd fashion. I've

always been a little self-conscious

about that issue. I can't remember

how you actually wore them. They

stick on. That's got to hurt. It's

not pleasant when you rip them off.

It's worse if -f you forget about

them and go to sleep and you're in

take the shower and then you forget to

take them off. You're a chardonnay

drinker, aren't you? I am. I read

about Foster's group which is the

biggest or second bigs

wine-producing company in Australia.

-- biggest wine-producing company

in Australia. They've asked of

their riverina growers to grow no

more chardonnay because there's no

market anymore. What are market anymore. What are we

supposed to drink, sauvignon blanc,

that's horrible. I don't like

that's horrible. I don't like that

either. I don't mind the a pinot. A

little more depth. By 2050 we won't

be the wine producing nation we are

now because of climate change, it now because of climate change, it

will be too arid. The UK will have

a wonderful wine growing region and

lots of sunlight. They'll all be

keeling over. I've got one more

question to ask you before we get

in to the day. I drive up early in

the morning. In the traffic with

all the tradies. There's me and

all these utes. They're flashy as all these utes. They're flashy as

well. They all wear the orange or

yellow neon worksafe shirt. Correct.

What's that called? It's a safety

shirt. Surely tradies have a

nickname for it. Probably the

flashy. The singlet was the bluey.

We should call my husband. I wish I

had invented that shirt because

they've all got them. We they've all got them. We come to

work in the dark, and especially

because there are lots of building

sites around where we work here in

South Yarra in Melbourne, it's very

handy. You can see them in their

cars. This glow from the cabin of

their car. Friday May 23. What's on

the front page? PM Kevin Rudd has

again defended his Government's

response to surging fuel prices.

Pressure is mounting on the MP Pressure is mounting on the MP to

the fight against climate change Kevin Rudd is balancing with the cost to the hip pocket, Brendan Nelson now warning to reduce greenhouse gases using carbon trading if fuel is part of the mix. will further drive up petrol prices at $25 to $40 a tonne, If carbon is priced

Tania Zaetta has angrily denied

claims she had sex with soldiers

Tania Zaetta says it never happened. And couldn't have, And couldn't have, considering the

tight restrictions on performers

while in the war zone. If one

person would want to, I don't know

where you would go. The Defence

Department has released a statement

apologising for naming those

allegedly involved. What should be

investigated in my view is how

these ubsubstantiated allegations

were ever leaked to the media. I am hurt the damage it's

last night and shut down Bill Henson's controversial new

exhibition, just hours before it

exhibition features photos of naked

I see - it's back to the old

controversy about nude figures. Oh,

well, he's no strangeer to that.

children involved today and are

reviewing the content of the

gallery's website. What do you

think about that? I haven't seen

the photographs so I can't comment.

On a matter of principle, nude On a matter of principle, nude

photographs of children, some as

think it would be entirely

inappropriate. Let us quo e ebgz

they can get away with it. Send us

We'll have more on those stories at

11, plus a full wrap at 5. There is

absolutely no doubt about it -

indigenous AFL footballers have an

unbelievable skill which

highlights the unique affinity with

the game. They're mesmerising,

elastic and seem to play with a

sense of magic. One of the

greatest-ever to strap on the boots

will strap on the walking shoes for

this weekend's long walk. Dreamtime

at the MCG at the MCG b) gan four years ago

and recognises the significant role

that Aboriginal people have in

shaping the game. And former

champion Michael Long will use his

walk to highlight problems faced by

indigenous Australians. Besides

absolute madness, what on earth

inspired you to do the first walk?

This is the fourth one by

This is the fourth one by the way?

Sometimes you can lose faith in

Government and I suppose you only

have to look at the statistics of

health and education, housing and

employment. I suppose I really

wanted to make aware the public

that this is happening and it

needed to be changed, for a better

future for all our kids. I felt

probably as a footballer and part

of my doing a

of my doing a walk was making

change. No doubt the people who

walk with me shared the same

feeling this was a time we needed

it. Who does walk with you?

Anybody? Do you invite people? It

started off, two of us, my cousin

John. And then people joined us

along the way. Along the journey

people would walk for a day or a kilometre. And then I think we kilometre. And then I think we

ended up with about 30 or 40 people

walking in to Canberra and there

was obviously the support we had

was absolutely fantastic. And no

doubt tomorrow it's about bringing

people together, unity. All the

funds raised that we have in the

past have gone to indigenous leadership. That was one of the

real things that come out of the

walk and talking to Howard, the PM

then. It's great that young

indigenous kids see Aboriginal role

models? Most importantly. And I

think the AFL, here is a model

that's worked and the Kick Start

program and the academies they have

across Australia, they're using

sport as a vehicle and players to

get kids back in to school. If it's

a way to make an impact, it starts

from the schooling. How important was footy for

was footy for you? Probably my life.

I suppose my father played and

coached and we couldn't play any

other sport than Australian Rules

footy. No chance of rugby union? We

did play because the football

seizeson played in the off season

to here, so we would play rugby.

All the football players would go

and play rugby. Keep themselves fit. Football was part of our daily Football was part of our daily

lives. We're watching some

indigenous players here. Why are

you guys so good at the sport?

There is no doubt about it. Even

last weekend, the Victorian

last weekend, the Victorian team

verses the Dreamtime, the top 10

players, five of the top 10 were

indigenous players. There is something extraordinary that goes

on when you guys play football? As the

the game has evolved and changed,

the running game, the skills, the

precision and it suited a lot of

the younger indigenous kids the way

they can change a game. One of the

players I love watching is Aaron

Davey, the way he plays. To have

some of those players in each side.

I think, as the game has evolved, it's probably suited it's probably suited a lot of the

indigenous players. You mentioned

before there is massive inequality

in terms of education and health

and all of those sorts of things

within the Aboriginal communities,

compared to white communities - compared to white communities - do

you think the change of Government

is going to make a signif kpbts

impact given Kevin Rudd's sorry

statement earlier this year? I

suppose it's taken a while for the

apology to happen. It needed to

happen, didn't it? Most certainly.

When you look at the destruction,

and sometimes good will doesn't

always work. It can do the opposite.

Whether the Government thought they

were doing the right thing, at the

end of the day - you only have to

talk to some of the people. I

actually went down with some of the elderly ladies that were quite

emotional, but you could feel this

strong spear. There was a good

spirit in the air about the apology

and maybe things were going to

start to happen. Not being dictated

to but working with the people to

fix the problem. And that's

probably pretty much, it was about

unity the walk. If we can't get

people to come together and talk

and go forward, you're never going

to get anywhere. This is a great

country of ours. In 2008, in our

backyard, we have the ideas. We can

fly to the moon, we can invent

things with the Internet and all

these things, surely we can find

solutions to health and education

and housing in our own backyard. It

can't be that hard. You mentioned

before past governments have

dictated. Is that part of the

problem that the Aboriginal

communities are not drawn in to the solution? I think we're part of the

solution and we need to take

ownership. It's not about sympathy,

it's empathy. I think most importantly, there are young

leaders out there, new up and

coming leaders. I was with Pat

Dodson the other night, he won the

peace prize for 2008. It's probably

for those leaders, they're an

integral part of where we're going

in the future. Part of the

indigenous system is always through

the elders. They play an enormous

part of how they bring it together

and look at the other areas. In

terms of the walk, we need

corporates in different areas,

health and education and doctors to

look at how we can get it right.

The thing I learnt from Kevin

Sheedy is that we can get it right,

but it will take time. You

mentioned ownership and indigenous

affairs minister Jenny Macklin used

the Mabo speech to talk about

native title and that it's failing

indigenous communities and it needs

to help to reduce the difference

and life expectancy gap. Do you

agree with that? That's the first

I've heard of it. Look, I think the

land where you're from is probably

important and it's something you

can never take away from you. What

needs to happen, if there is

enterprise or a hub where you can

look at probably jobs or in

different areas, whether it's

tourism or something else or shops,

but actually can build their own

economy, which keeps their own

community alive and provides

employment, and then you have a

flowing effect of that there are

jobs available in the community but

they're building their own economy

in their own community but

developing jobs. And I think jobs

go a long way to how we live. Jobs

and education. Yeah. It goes a long

way to how we live and how we feel

about ourselves. Yeah. Even though

a lot of the problems are

interconnecting, it gives a person

self-esteem. You can do what you

want instead of depending on

welfare. Kefbgen Sheedy, the Dream

-- Kevin Sheedy, the Dreamtime at

the G and it's Essendon and

Richmond. Kevin Sheedy, your coach,

instrumental I understand in

getting you down to play at

Essendon. Yeah. How important was

Kevin Sheedy to indigenous

footballers? I think goes hand in

hand. The coach had the vision to

look outside the square. He was

probably the first one to go away

and get six indigenous kids to come

to Essendon football club. He's

probably changed so many things,

not only within football clubs and

itself, but he's changed a nation

in terms of racial vilification.

They've clamped down on it. It's opened

opened up tuepbtsz for other

cultures. There's been so many

great coaches. Look add Mark

Williams with what he's done with

Port Pour. And in Western Australia

as well. You look at Neisham who is

at Fremantle Football Club and

working for schools across

Australia. He's used that model

with football and education to get

our kids back to school. I think

that's why football's worked. And

to use the connection with football

and education to get our kids back.

You can't play down the effect of

having past players like you still

involved in helping these young

kids as well? It must be enormously

satisfying? Especially for this

weekend but for the players,

amazing how powerful they are to

influence kids to go back to school.

That's right. Sport does it and it

works and that's why it's been so

successful. We need our leaders in

all different areas - sporting or

working in the community or health

worker or in the arts department.

It is influential. That's why the

model of the AFL has worked. I

think the people they've had around

the clubs and the network and the

players they've had, it's been good

guidance. People within clubs,

we're chipping away and have got it

right. I suppose that's how it is.

Look, the walk takes off this

weekend on Saturday. All the best

for that. It's a long way. Not as

long this time. But we would love football football supporters, Essendon football supporters, Essendon and

Richmond supporters, Long Walk

supporters to come down and be a

part of it. If you want more

details, we'll have those on our

website. Thank you. We'll be back

with style queen Patricia Field right after this.

Every self-respecting young

fashionista has watched 'Sex and

the City' and marveled at the

fashion forward wardrobe and with

the movie due for release in

Australia, it's our pleasure to

welcome the woman responsible for

shaping the look, Patricia Field.

She brought Blahnik and Choo in to

the fashion stratosphere and she

can single handedly turned a fake

nipple with the uncanny characteristic of remaining

permanently erect in to a fashion

item and has two poodles, one named

Sultana and the other intrigue --

intriguingly x Putana. What's with

the name of the poodles? Sultana is

the name of my grandmother. Sultana.

Who I loved deeply and, you know. I

always have to have a Sultana

around me to have my grandmother

around me. I've had a bird once and

called her Sultana. That's the

Sultana story. And the other one?

And the Putana story - Sultana

means queen, actually. So the other

one was, I had this idea of making

these two names sound the same so

the dogs will never know the

difference and when I call them

Sultana and Putana, they won't know.

But in the end they

But in the end they do know their

names. But Putana is like the an

tith ssz of Sultana. And they are

extremely opposite in their

personalities. Can I ask you a

question. This is a serious

question because I know that - and

I'm a dog person, so I get it -

particularly in New York, they're

mad, they're mad about their dogs.

But as the leading

But as the leading stylist fashion

guru in the world, do you dress

your dogs up? My dogs have a very

big wardrobe, all gifts from many

people. But they wear them only

occasionally. My friend David made

these crystal stone trbs shirts for

them. -- T-shirts for them, when

they were puppies. I put them on them and they

them and they were not happy. I

said, "Alright, girls, run around

naked if you want. You're not going

to embarrass me, daughter of a

stylist." Exactly. The issue with

the Jimmy Choos but now I dream

about owning them. I wonder if you

had the Pupu Choos. Little boots?

Yes. No, they don't, because my

dogs, they very rarely go out. They

live in my home. It's 2-level. It

has a backyard. Their world is my

home. When they were puppies, I

wouldn't even let them walk on the

streets, because - They're dirty.

Right. So they run around the house,

Right. So they run around the house,

barefoot. Would you be - what do

you call yourself? Are you a

designer, stylist? I would say that

I'm a stylist, if I have to have a

name. But probably the way I see

this, I'm kind of like, I'm more

like some collage artist or

like some collage artist or leader,

I don't design the garment or make

the garment, I put all these

garments together and make this.

Would you be the stylist that you

are if you lived in say Melbourne

or? Does it happen for you because

you live in New York? Um, it could

happen anywhere. And Melbourne is a

good place for it to happen.

good place for it to happen. So, no,

no, I don't think so. But it might

be a bit different if it were

Melbourne. It's all about your

experience in your life, as you

grow and what data you take in to

your brain. It could happen

anywhere. Look, one of the things

that I just loved and I know I'm

not alone, is watching the

changing fashions in 'Sex and the

City' and I know there was an enormous

enormous wardrobe. But I was stuned

to hear you had designers throwing

boxes and boxes of stuff at you.

How do you end up going through all

of that stuff to find the look?

You- a big team. You have someone

sitting there and their job is to

deal with - Look at this. It's

amazing. To deal with the boxes. I

don't personally sit and open up

the boxes because that's what I'd

be doing all day long. But that's

how you do it. People do send us

clothes and I'm very happy they do

because they want to be on the show

and the show just became the new

form of fashion magazine. And it's

just logical that they would want

to be in the fashion magazine

because that's what they do. Do you find yourself going, "Because

everyone's watching, I'm going to

do something really silly and

do something really silly and see

if I get away with it?" Once in a

while we do it. It's not to see while we do it. It's not to see if

we get away with it. It's to see if

they catch it. One time, during the

TV show, we went out, the show

filmed in Los Angeles, and there

was a pair of shoes that Sarah

Jessica had many colours of. We

thought that she could wear two

different colours, one on her left

foot and one on their right foofplt

they caught it. It's kind of fun.

It becomes a game. Very satisfying.

Everyone is having fun with it.

Where do you start? You do

something like 'Sex and the City'.

You have four very, very powerful

individual characters. How on earth

do you start to put together a

wardrobe for these people? Does it

simply start, as I read, with maybe

a sandal? I don't think it starts

with a sandal. And I don't think

that they're powerful until they

become powerful. And probably become powerful. And probably part

of their power, the ingredient

state, the power, is the wardrobe

and the style that we together

create. Together, I mean myself, my

department and the actor, who is

playing this character. After all,

that actor is in front of the

camera, not me. So that actor - Do

they sometimes say, "No, I'm not

wearing that?" Everybody asks me

that question and we come from a

point of controversy. No, they

don't say no because it's not the

process. It's not the process of me

saying, "Here, this is what you're

wearing." The process is there's a

room of clothes that I have made

the first edit, it means I selected,

and felt it was appropriate for the

character, for the anthress, for

the kairbt. And we -- actress, for

the character. And we go through

them closely and look for the right

one for that scene and that scene.

We try it on, maybe it looks good

and maybe it doesn't. A very

collaborative effort. And the

process of it. It's not at all

dictatorial or, "This is my job and

you must wear this." I'm here you must wear this." I'm here to

support the actor because the actor

is creating this character in front

of the camera. That's what the

people see. How different is the

style for the movie as compared to

the style for the television

series? I would answer that, really,

it's five years difference. So if

you think about it - But it's kind

of - depending on shooting schedule, of - depending on shooting schedule,

maybe a year ahead of when it will

come out? But you're assuming that

I'm here selling clothes, making

fashion statements. I am not. I'm

here dressing characters. I'm

really not interested in what's

happening six months from now in

fashion. I'm trying to dress these

girls to look gorgeous and present

their character. You did the styling

styling for 'Devil Wears Prada'. It

must have been important for the

success of that movie seeing it success of that movie seeing it was

about fashion. The fashion is then

and now and you would have been

doing that? Yes and no. Because,

again, this fashion movie genre or

'Sex and the City' that created, it

created a genre.

created a genre. But, it assumes

that you have to put on whatever is

gonna be hot next season. Next

season has nothing to do with it

because for this to be loved and

respected throughout the years, it

has to hold up for many years, not

a season. So you can't really

approach it that way. So it's about

style, as opposed to fashion? And

it's about original. For example,

when we all think of a great movie

of clothes, contemporary, but

contemporary when in the '60s,

'Breakfast at Tiffany's. It holds

up, not because it was predicting

the fashion of next season, it

holds up because

holds up because Audrey Hepburn

looks delightful every minute.

That's the essence of it. It's

interesting you brought her up. Who

do you believe is the most

fashionable woman either ever or

today? Ever or today? Well, ever I

imagine it would be Cleopatra.

Let's face it, this is over 2,000

years ago and we're still talking

about her in a glamorous way. Yes.

Today, um... That's a hard one.

Hillary Clinton? Now you're Hillary Clinton? Now you're making

jokes. She dresses like an old

woman. I don't get it. But people -

Barack Obama's wife always looks

great. And the other day I saw her

on TV and they went back to hiwaw,

-- Ioha and she was in jeans and a

tank top and she looked great and

normal and good. And so that's it.

Given that - I could say more about

that. Given you've designed a range

exclusively for Myer and we'll give

you the preview on that when it

comes out in October, do you

believe that it's important that

fashion is accessible, that it's

not all thousands of dollars wurgtd

of designer clothes, that it's

something that someone can come in

off the street and buy? I'm 100%

behind accessible fashion. I coined

a phrase the democracy of fashion.

Because the most important thing

for us, as people, is to

communicate with one another on

every level possible. And how we

dress is a way. It's people

shouldn't have to suffer to clothe

themselves or have to get a

mortgage from the bank to buy a

handbag. Basically, I mean, I'm not

pushing expensive fashion on pushing expensive fashion on 'Sex

and the City', I'm mixing things up

in any way I see fit that makes it

look good and if it's a $5 whatever

thrift store item, or couple it

with a $5,000 bag, it's just about

the elevation of the imagination

and the fantasy, as opposed to this

commercialization of anything at

this point. And in this moment,

fashion. When someone like Myer

comes to you and says, "We want you

to do a range for us?" Do they tell

you what they want? No, they don't

tell me what they want to that

specific point. But at the same

time, it's only logical that I have

an understanding of who is their

customer, not that I'm all of a

sudden going to go - I can't anyway

please the whole world all the time,

but just of the knowledge that the

world I'm in is definitely helpful

and helps in the inspiration. Yeah,

the last thing I wanted to ask you,

I think it must be amazing for you,

given the fact that a stylist is

generally behind the scenes. It

must be amazing for you to realise

that you have now got your own celebrity. You're going to be

dressing people in Melbourne today,

but what is that like when you

suddenly realise you're the person

these people want to come and see?

Really, Kim, I don't think about it

that much. I started out in my

career with my shop, that you - you

didn't visit my original shop but

it stands for basically the same

thing. And in my shop, from when I

started it, your customers come in,

you show them clothes and put

things together, you're a stylist.

And at that level, I'm basically

just doing the same thing that I

always did. Just more public

recognition, I guess? Yes, that's

the difference. I can't look at the

recognition and, "Oh, you're great,"

or something. I'm doing what I love

to do and the fact that I continue

to do it and it grows in to other

areas. For example, the collection

for Myer, different manifestations

of creativity within, you know, it

doesn't even have to be fashion.

Fashion meaning clothing. I just

designed for Diet Coke bottles in

Great Britain for the English

market and they came out gorgeous.

And the idea just popped in to my

mind. When that happens, you know

it's going to be good. When you

labour over something, better to

walk away. So lovethry to meet you.

It's been a pleasure. Have fun

while you're here? I'm having a

great time. Thank you. A tantalising dish comprising of

sourdough, zucchini and the output

of a goat next.

This morning we welcome back to the

kitchen, Toby Puttock and his drinking

drinking buddy, Toby Skinner. It's

a cold sore. I have conjunketivitis.

It's a burn from some hot stock. We

could fix it with food and could fix it with food and wine.

The good food and wine show in

Melbourne. I'm doing a show with Mr

Matt here. Melbourne and Sydney

we're doing it. We did a program

last year and we're looking at food

and wine in different parts of the

world and try and bring it to life.

The industry might be in trouble

according to today's paper S. that

new information? So the CSIRO

released a report and said - am I

in your way? Cramping your space?

Just a subtle hip and shoulder out

of the way. Look, the CSIRO

released a report a couple of years

ago where they said climate change

would have a big impact on warm

climate areas in Australia, so we

know about that and they're saying

perhaps some of our favourite wine

regions like the Barossa Valley and

particularly the Riverland stand to

suffer because of a warming climate.

Countries like the UK, stand to

benefit. Now, look, you did say,

David, horrible sauvignon blanc.

This is a great example. It's very

acidic. It is really clean and

fresh and herbaceous. It's got a

biggurse personality. You have a big personality. Passion fruit,

gooseberry, fresh herbs. All gooseberry, fresh herbs. All the

things that Toby has got going on

with the dish. This is a bit

influenced from our trip to athens.

We have zucchini. It's probably

right out of season to be doing

this. If we can pretend it's spring

for the next five minutes. A big

help. This is normal zucchini. Warm

in Far xrpb North Queensland. I've

put a good couple of pinches of

salt in there. Leave that for five

minutes. After five minutes you

rinse it with cold water and end up

with this. The salt draws out a lot

of the moisture from the zucchini

and leaves it a bit limp. It looks

cooked, doesn't it? It almost is.

And in to there, this is for a

little salad here. We throw in a

bit of salt and pepper and put mint

and basil in there doofplt you want

to keep on talking? Sure. Why is

this a good match? What we saw in

Greece was amazing. It was hot, for

a start, 40 degrees each day. And

you didn't want it eat heavy things.

Dishes like this that were light

and fresh and aromatic were great

with light and interesting wines.

We saw a lot of indigenous grape

varieties in Greece. Such as?

Acidico. But that sounds wrong? Who

wants to drink that? Linking it

back to the whole climate change

thing, a lot of those varieties are

starting to find their way here now

and Australian wine-makers are

experimenting with those varieties.

What we did see was things like

sauvignon blanc and we influenced a

dish from that area from one across

the water from New Zealand could be

good. That tastes salty to me? It

has clean, citrusy tang to it which

could give you the impression it's

salty. This compliments that

because not only because it's

influenced from the same region but

it can cut through? I always try and balance before I think white or

red, the weight of the food with

the weight of the wine. If you have

a light delicate dish. It's not

about chicken or red meat? Think

about cooking techniques as well

that influence it. A light delicate

dish and fresh herbs and a bit of

citrus going in there. So you need

a wine that's clean, crisp, light,

delicate. So that does it.

delicate. So that does it. When

you're talking something, do you

have a say in that at the

restaurant what what wines you

think go with the food? Yes. No,

you don't. I do. I try and use it

as a learning curve just to try and

get as much as I can off the

get as much as I can off the

experts. If if he says, "That's

great," we kind of go, "No worries.

The good food and wine fersival

starts next weekend in Melbourne

and it's touring around the rest of

the country. Up in Sydney, Gordon

Ramsey is coming out to do it. He's

fantastic. We had him on the show.

He had us in such a lather, David

was sweating and I swore. Kim did.

I was very nervous about him

swearing. And you ended up

swearing? Yeah. Just before you go,

Matt and Toby, you haven't put

anything on that? We have the

zucchini there, five minutes in

salt and rinse it in cold water. A

little bit of lemon juice if you

wish. You probably don't want to

make it too strong because of the

wine. A bit of olive oil. I've used

sourdough there. This is goat's

curd which I've flavoured again.

And a big flavour? For people, I

like a little bit of it. For people

like me who have got boring and

basic tastes, is there a goat's

cheese that is kind of less

flavoursome or are they all big

flavours? I think they're all big.

Really fresh young goat's cheese

tends to be quite delicate in its

flavours, whereas you can get the

really aged goat's cheese. We've

got a bit of salty flavour here

from the zucchini and the water

cress and a grassy olive oil. All

those flavours work really well

especially in spring. Thank you so

much. If you'd like toby and Matt's

recipe - toby's recipe for this

fantastic dish. It is mine. You can

download everything. If you'd like

more information on the Good Food

and Wine Roadshow, go on to the website. We all know fresh is best, and imagine being able to have fresh herbs, veges, flowers, whenever you need them. And you don't even need a backyard to do it.

Here on 9am we have something new - and Dennis, I believe this is the world's first indoor smart garden? That's right, Marianne, this is Aero Garden. It's been a huge hit internationally, and this is something we can all use. A super-productive indoor garden that lets you grow herbs, lettuce, tomato, chillis, flowers, in fact all sorts of things faster than you can imagine, indoors all year round. Now, it uses NASA-proven technology, doesn't it? That's right. NASA-proven aeroponics. Let's see how that speeds up the growing process. Here you've got lettuce growing in the Aero Garden versus lettuce grown traditionally. Now the difference is amazing. Imagine growing a garden like this on your kitchen bench. All that growth in 36 days and you'll keep on picking and using it for months. It's extraordinary watching it grow, everything is so beautifully lush and green. I guess this means you can always have crispy, fresh,

super-healthy herbs in your home? Of course. No more soggy lettuce or wilted herbs.

I mean, why would you? There is nothing fresher than picking straight from the plant and going straight to the bowl.

Think about how often you buy salad and herbs and use it for a meal and you end up throwing the rest away? That won't happen because you pick what you need. And I can see there's no dirt in here? That's because Aero Garden and aeroponics

is a very different way of growing. It's so fast and germination is 100% guaranteed. Let's see how it works. The Aero Garden is a self-watering, self-feeding smart garden that grows delicious natural herbs, vegetables, fruits and flowers, with no dirt, no weeds, no pesticides, no work and no fuss. You don't even need a green thumb. It even tells you when to add the water and nutrients

and automatically turns the grow lights on and off to maximise growth.

And how do you get the Aero Garden started? Simple. You just add water and the organic-based nutrients. Pop in the plug-and-grow seed pods, select the plant type and you're up and growing. You can start picking in weeks, and keep enjoying the same crop for up to six months. Think of how much money you'll save and of course how much better your food will taste knowing that you're using the freshest possible ingredients. I want you to try this for me? A bit of basil on the bruscietta.

Mmm. Great flavour. Mm-hmm. With Aero Garden, Marianne, it's always fresh.

It's definitely a healthier option for the family because you know for certain that absolutely no chemicals or pesticides of any kind

have been used. With fruit and vegies getting more expensive every day, this makes great sense and the Aero Garden looks good too.

It does, and they come in black or white. And there's a silver Aero Garden too, for a little extra.

You can ask the operators about that. Aero Garden looks beautiful on the kitchen bench but people have them in pride of place in the lounge room or the rumpus too. They're lush, green and very much a talking point. And it would be good to get the kids involved too, Yeah.

I'm sure they would love watching things grow so quickly. That's right. And you can order extra seed kits from Global Shop Direct, and they'll keep you supplied for months at a time. There's gourmet herbs, tomatoes, chillis, Italian herbs, basil and gorgeous petunias,

that you can grow right on your kitchen counter. And for the green thumbs there is the master gardener kit. You can grow and propagate plants from your own garden. Doesn't matter where you live, whether it's in season or not, Aero Garden will give you a guaranteed crop every time. Sounds like it will pay for itself in no time, How do we get one? To get your very own Aero Garden, here's what you do - get on the phone or go online right now. You'll get Aero Garden in your choice of white or black

and you'll receive the gourmet herb seed kit valued at $29.95, A and absolutely free. Remember to ask the call centre if you want the premium silver model for a just a little extra. Aero Garden will bring super fresh food into your home super fast

for five easy payments of $49.99 plus postage and handling. As always with Global Shop Direct, you've got their 30-day money-back satisfaction guarantee. If you don't see those herbs start to grow,

send it back, for a full refund of the purchase price, less delivery.

The Aero Garden is a world-first,

It's brand new to Australia and Global Shop Direct. Call now to order, or go online: Thanks, Dennis, for Global Shop Direct.

We'll bring you the latest news

headlines shortly but keeping the

workplace happy, politically

correct and free of inappropriate behaviour next.

Do you bitch about your work mates,

do you argue with your spouse do you argue with your spouse on

the workplace phone, do you leave

dirty cups in the office sink? You

are committing workplace sin and if

it wasn't almost impossible to be

sacked these days, you'd probably

be sacked. Managers are asking how

do you correct insifrbility in the

workplace? You bring in Tracey

Hodgkins. She specialises in

teaching managers how to deal with

this. David and I suffer from this

all the time being different

generations. It's not the baby

boomers that are the worst

offenders, it's Generation Y. Good

morning. Morning. Good morning. How

are you? Are we really that rude in

the workplace? I don't believe are

intentionally rude at all it's just

that people are focused

intrinsically on themselves.

They're not focused on the people

around them and so we tend to then

have problems. I was reading a

recent survey which said recent survey which said something

like 90.2% of people had complained

about at least one instance of

workplace inappropriate behaviour

in the past 12 months. What

typically is that? Are we getting

too sensitive about this? No. Well,

we do courses on bullying and

sexual harassment for example, and

we find that most people have had

some sort of what they perceive as

bullying that's happened to them in

the workplace in some form. Those

sorts of things tend to be anything

from sly comments through to stuff

that's quite overt or quite

sexually oriented. So for example,

commenting on the way they're

dressed. So that makes people, it

gets their back up as such. What

sort of other examples are there

because I can imagine in any high-pressure situation like boardrooms, I'd imagine that's

where there would be large

arguments had? In the boardroom,

actually, I've got to say that

mostly men in the boardroom. Own

laa couple of women. -- loan lea

couple of women. They tend to feel

sidelined anyway. The office place

is the problem, especially now,

we're talking about office places

that have open plans. So you've got

things like people talking on the

phone loudly, while the person next

door is trying to talk to them. You

have people - I'll give you an

example of one young person who was

sitting there talking on the phone

to her friend and her boss came

across her and said this. That was

her action to the boss and then

went like that. That means that she

wanted two seconds. She continued

her conversation with her friend

and when she put the phone down

said, "Can I help you?" Are you

sure about that. That could mean

high 5 and peace? Or hello and up

yours, I'll still on the phone. It

was taken like up yours and I'm

still on the phone. See what I

mean? Who are the offenders?

Typically is it the younger

generation, Generation Y, young

guys and young girls coming in to

the office for the first time and

not understanding the etiquette?

There's two problems here. A lot of

it is generational. When you talk

about Generation Y, they've been

brought up by baby boomers and they

made them feel good and they're so

confident because we made them feel

fantastic. So they come up, get

tine their workplace and never had

any resistance to anything they

wants at all. They've been told

they're fantastic. They've never

been hardly told off. So what

happens in the workplace is they

tend to do what they did at home.

Not eld told how to act in a

workplace. When they go to yuefrtd

or TAFE or go from the schools, --

university or TAFE or go from the

schools, who teaches them

appropriately? Sounds like the age

old problem. It's cyclical anyway?

No, I don't think it's unsolvable.

We've been putting in-turns in to

the workplace since 1999 and the

reason we started our workplace

etiquette course in the first place

was because we were getting

complaints the interns didn't know

how to answer the phone. Answering

the phone, "Hey dude," isn't

appropriate. What do you do when

you trouble shoot like Senate do

you walk around the office and

identify the naughty people and put

a sign on their head? You can't do

that because it's singling people

out. Every workplace should have an

induction that includes workplace

etiquette. Then they've got some

sort of a banner they can hold up

and say, "This is appropriate for

our workplace." Sorry, go on? If

they do that, then everyone will

know the rules. They've all gut a

level playing field. That's all

we're saying -- got a level playing

field. That's all we're saying. Who

is most concerned about it, when

they call you, is it management or

the employee that needs the

the employee that needs the

training? Well, the HR people

usually come to us and say that the

managers need training and the

Generation Ys need training. "What

do we do?" We put awareness

seminars for the managers and put

in training for the young

Generation Ys. Honestly, whatever

happened to a manager going and

kicking someone up the backside and

saying, "That's not appropriate."

You can't do that. It's very

difficult to get rid of people and

it's silly. We're in a skills

shortage market. How can you then

go and get rid of people just

because they don't understand a

little bit about working

appropriately in the workplace,

that's it? What about the age old

question of the office romance? A

bit of conoodling over the photo

copier? Again, where do you copier? Again, where do you meet

people these days? Mostly in the

office because you're there 7.5

hours a day and working in an

office is like having a marriage

anyway, isn't it? I didn't say that.

I work with him every day. Oh,

there you go then. You stay on your

side of the seat. I've had this

happen in our workplace and it

causes so many problems. If there's

clear rules around it. No kissing

in the cupboard. No doing inappropriate things at office

parties or conferences. I think

those things have to be spelt out

for people, because people are just

not that aware of how they should

behave wherever they are. I suppose

the other issue, just quickly, is

that with Generation Y, if they get

told off, we speak to them all the

time on this program, they don't

hang around, they just go and you

potentially lose skilled people?

That's what the problem is. If you

have a look at all the surveys

coming out now frbs you're unhappy

in the workplace, the young

Generation Ys will walk out the

door. They don't think, "I'm not

going to get another job." They

know they're going to walk in to

another job. That's it. It is interesting. Thank you so much.

Lovethry to talk to you. Lovely to

meet you. Love you, goodbye. Love

you too. Was that a little

inappropriate? Alright, back after

this. To spread the love. If the

cost of running a household and

everything it entails seems a bit overwhelming, then car insurance is

probably the last thing on your

mind. Whether you like it or not,

it has to be paid. It's not an

option. Nikki joins us to give us

advice on car insurance. Hi. It's a

growing problem, people driving

around uninsured? It sure is. It's

estimated around 1 in 10 cars on

the road today is actually driving

around uninsured. That's a bit

scary? It is and I know insurance

can sound a bit boring but it's

actually critical and you just know

the moment you don't insure your

car, something will happen to it.

Just when you think it won't happen,

it invarably does. Why is it

costing us all so much? The thing

about it is and this isn't very

fair, but you could be paying

higher premiums to subsidise the

cost of all those bad drivers that

are on the road. Those in hotted up

cars and with bad driving histories.

You're rights. That's not very fair.

I don't want to be paying for I don't want to be paying for them

but I assume Budget Direct are

doing something about it? Yes, they

are. They're focused on rewarding

good drivers. If they're only

insuring good safe drivers, they're

not paying out on as many claims?

Budget Direct's chaiplz ratio is

consistently lower than the --

claims ratio is consistently lower

than the average. How much could we

save? Safe drivers could save

hundreds of dollars, up to $400 a

year, and even more in some cases.

It's really exciting what Budget

Direct has to offer. Take a look Direct has to offer. Take a look at these reallife examples:

I could think of lots we could do

with all those extra dollars? It's

graifplt and Budget Direct are so

confident that you could save that

they're prepared to put their

money where their mouth is. How so?

They offer a price beat guarantee.

If you're over 25 and find a lower comparable quote within 2000 days

of buying one of their policies and

you meet the guarantee terms,

they'll not only match it, they'll

beat it, guaranteed. That's great

news and they've been awarded a

curveted Cannex 5 star rating for

best value nationally and it's the

highest rating possible? They're

really proud of this achievement

and it shows they're not cutting

corners and are offering quality

insurance with the features you'd

expect. Budget Direct are pretty

big? They're looking after hundreds

of thousands Aussie drivers and

growing by the day. Good to know.

Another point people need to

remember is that car insurance is

not like a mobile phone contract,

is it? You can cancel your existing overpriced policy immediately and

even if there are small

cancellation fees, you can still be

making savings by switching to

Budget Direct? You can switch today

and it's so easy, all done over the

phone and literally one phone call

could save you hundreds of dollars.

So just to recap - with Budget

Direct, you could be making huge

savings and, remember, they've

also received a Cannex5-star rating,

so you know it's quality insurance

and Budget Direct also offer home

and content insurance and provide

great additional discounts if it's

bundled with your car. It's

sounding better and better. For

home insurance or car insurance,

how do we get in touch with Budget

Direct? Well, call: or you can get

a 2-minute fast quote at the

website. It's really simple. It

will only take a few minutes and

you could save hundreds. Thanks.

Hi. Good morning. An historic

moment for our nation as

Australia's first female bishop is

ordained in Perth. Kay Goldsworthy

has used the occasion to appeal for

unity in the Anglican church. The

52-year-old mother of 2 started her

rise to bishop as a young priest in

Melbourne. Her proud mum watching

on last night. Her ordination

overnight has angered some

Christians, saying it could lead to

the consecration of gay priests.

Police will today question the

children who posed naked for the

photos at the art exhibition which

were to be shown at an art gallery

in Sydney. The exhibition has been

shut down. Pictures ofrtd pre-teens

appeared on a website which has

disappeared. The photographer, Bill Henson, is being questioned about whether

- the 71-year-old is sticking to

his belief marriage should be

between a man and a woman. Ellen

announced her wedding plans last

week after a Californian court

overturned a ban on same-sex

marriage. And fuel commissioner Pat marriage. And fuel commissioner Pat

Walker will join us in the morning

news and we'll find out his news and we'll find out his plans

to lower ever-increasing petrol

prices. Good luck on that. I know.

Given they're going totop $1.70 in

a few weeks, we'll see how we go.

a few weeks, we'll see how we go. I

remember Reaganomics, and the same

thing happened, his attempt to

control oil reserves and prices and the economy. the economy. I'm wondering if there's something more sinister

behind all this? I support that

theory. I love that. Let's work on

it. I'll ask him about that. Let's

ask Mr Reagan, oh, we can't. We'll

see you at 11 o'clock. Have a

lovely weekend. Thank you. There's

plenty more of us after this.

If you'd like to get rid of dust from around the house the easy way,

look at what Lucy has. Hello, Lucy. Hi, Marianne. It's the RotoDuster! The environmentally friendly way to say goodbye to chemicals and dust. The rotating power duster it uses static electricity to pick up dust almost instantly. This could help cut your cleaning time in half. And it makes cleaning a breeze. Even your kids are going to want to clean. It's that easy. I can imagine they will. I don't know how many people who do enjoy house cleaning

but this makes it look so easy? And it's perfect for air vents and grills, glassware, delicates and antique furniture and you know what it's also great for is recess lighting. ceiling fans, mouldings and things that are fiddly to get to and getting right into electronic equipment at home. Gets in to the tightest of spaces, even works on plants and greenery. So I say if you must dust, then RotoDust. It would make sense to have one of these upstairs and downstairs?

The main thing is people need to call: When you buy one, we're giving you the second one free, you just pay the additional postage. I like the way it fits in these things. Where does the dust go? It looks like it could spin everywhere?

That's what I thought but the rotating fibres attract the dust literally like a magnet so it uses static electricity to pick up the dust almost instantly. The dust sticks to it. Old-fashioned dusters just push the dust around. Watch from the static charge with the RotoDuster, its rotating fibres do all the work for you. That's
