An exclusive look tonight underground dance party culture inside Sydney's in dangerous and remote locations. with all-night raves the latest event, Police have criticised held in wartime gun turrets. not your average city nightclub. It's certainly An all-night rave with 300 people, a dance-floor, lights, a bonfire a DJ and speaker system, and plenty of alcohol. Invitation by word of mouth only. It happened on Saturday night. This was the venue - on Commonwealth land a disused wartime gun bunker at the end of the Malabar headland. littered with empty drink bottles, Five days on, the area is still and other party leftovers. smashed lanterns and partying When we're cranking up the music and celebrating the sun coming up, through until 8:00 in the morning I mean, no-one can hear us.

when, not if, the site caves in. that houses will be lost disputing those findings, For anyone to come out based on little evidence, with scaremongering really should be taken with a grain of salt. Dozens of homes surround the 100-year-old site. Dr Dick Ineson, an expert on quarry remediation, says the area is unstable and homes are at risk. Council can use the site for any number of opportunities. The safety of landowners is guaranteed. They do concede, however, if the water table continues to rise, the southern wall could come down. Residents not overly concerned. We're not worried about it at the moment. The dilemma has long been just what to do with this 28-hectare hole in the ground. but Council is determined to at least get some of its money back. Aside from filling it, turning it into a housing development or sports fields, they'll pursue legal action, claiming flawed State laws forced them to pay too much. The legislation has been changed. No council will ever have to acquire a property in those circumstances again. It was certainly a bad deal for Council, which Council was forced into. Frank Coletta, Ten News. The State Government is accused of lying over plans to slash hundreds of jobs from the stressed rail system. The Transport Minister insists the employees are staying, but rail bosses say it's definite - workers will be lost. Leaked documents show frontline rail workers are among those facing the chop from management. The news comes as the finishing touches are put on next Tuesday's Budget with public transport as the centrepiece. And according to the Opposition, it's a major embarrassment for Transport Minister John Watkins. he told everybody it was a furphy about the issue of the potential loss of 417 jobs. Yet two days later

the acting head of RailCorp has issued a statement to all staff. It says there are plans to remove 417 station staff. But there are plenty around. In fact, an extra 5% across the network compared to a year ago. It's a bad end to the week for Rob Mason who was heckled by angry commuter Michael Hart on Monday during a news conference. There is a lot of tactics. There's a lot of pushing and shoving in an industrial dialogue. That's what's happening at the moment. The Minister is guaranteeing the jobs so it leaves RailCorp making empty threats. Which ever way you look at it it's really dishonest for the Minister for Transport to tell the community one thing, then have the acting head of RailCorp say another thing to staff. The mixed message over rail jobs is an unwelcome diversion for the Government just ahead of the Budget. A document that will emphasise infrastructure spending including more money for roads and on the railways. I can't give away secrets about the Budget but what I do know is that it will generously fund public transport, both rail, bus and ferry. All will be revealed on Tuesday afternoon. Kevin Wilde, Ten News. Almost 70 years on, the mystery of HMAS 'Sydney' continues. Why did she sink and why did none of her 645 crew survive? A commission of inquiry began today to try to answer those questions. A handful of relatives attended the inquiry, among them, Judith Bennet, who lost her father George Quinn when the 'Sydney' sank in November 1941. Today she recalled her heartbroken mother's dying words. She couldn't wait for Dad to come home any longer. She was going to meet him... sorry. The discovery of 'Sydney' and 'Kormoran' prompted the inquiry into Australia's greatest maritime mystery. The commissioner promising to seek answers on behalf of grief-stricken families. Those questions centre upon how it came that 'Sydney II' was lost in battle and lost without any survivors. He'll travel to Germany next month to take evidence from 'Kormoran' survivors. The oldest, a frail 96 years of age. The actions of Captain Joseph Burnett will be examined. Decades of controversy failing to answer why he took 'Sydney' to within 1,000 metres of the German raider, which then opened fire. For 'Sydney' to have been in so close and both ships stationary, 'Kormoran' must have surrendered. Archives here and in Britain, the US, Germany and Japan are being searched for documentary evidence. will also examine the claims The inquiry of official cover-ups and conspiracy theories surrounding the loss of HMAS 'Sydney' that persist to the present day. I believe there was a submarine involved. The Cole inquiry, in my view, to find out once and for all what happened. Public hearings will begin later this year. John Hill, Ten News. It's our last sport with Tim Webster in a full-time capacity, he's hanging up his regular 5:00 hat tonight.

So we'll take a look back at some of your finest TV moments as well as all the sport. Ahead, Darren Lockyer's gamble to take on the Blues in Origin and the Roosters hit back at criticism they can only score tries one way. who's still there at the French Open Plus, we'll hear from Lleyton Hewitt Casey Dellaqua. along with another Aussie, And we meet the 41-year-old swimmer trying to reach her fifth Olympics including how lap swimmers would try and make her race

even though she was pregant and just trying to stay fit. And the build-up in Christchurch to the Waratahs' big challenge against the Crusaders for the Super 14 title. Blamed for a damaging Cabinet leak. Next, Kevin Rudd takes aim at the public service. Also tonight, the 'Underbelly' star let off for drink-driving. And history unearthed - the real story behind the Ned Kelly dig.

This program is captioned live. One of the stars of 'Underbelly', Alex Dimitriades, has been spared a jail sentence after pleading guilty to drink-driving. He was instead placed on a 12-month good behaviour bond and allowed to keep his licence after claiming he was the only one who could drive his sick mother to hospital.

But the 34-year-old actor has been axed from an anti- drink-driving television campaign. If you drink and drive you're a bloody idiot, basically.

That's about it. I made a mistake and I'm totally understanding of my mistake so I hope to benefit from this experience. He escaped a fine and no conviction has been recorded. serial bad driver and Bra Boy surfing gang member Jai Abberton. In December, he was caught driving despite being banned from getting behind the wheel for 14 years. He'll have to wait 16 years now after a magistrate added another two years to his ban and handed him an 8-month suspended jail sentence. The Rudd Government denies it's at war with the public service as the fallout continues from this week's damaging FuelWatch leaks. But the Prime Minister is standing by his vow to make his bureaucrats work even harder. Into the lion's den, a day after the Prime Minister let loose on public servants, Julia Gillard surrounded as she opened Centrelink's new headquarters. Such a remarkable crowd in so many layers. A warm reception, despite Federal Police being called in to investigate this week's explosive leaks on FuelWatch. Kevin Rudd blames a public service embittered over increased workloads for the embarrassing revelations, but warns the pace isn't going to slow. When it comes to the future, it's going to get more intense, not less intense. But angry Government employees are asking what happened to Kevin Rudd's promise to improve the work-life balance for families. Our lives have been turned into sheer hell. Our departments have turned into nightmares. Like all Australians they want to work hard but they also want the right to spend time with their families

and in their communities. Labor's front bench are attempting to dispel talk of a crippling rift. There is no breakdown but clearly there is a contest of ideas in Canberra as there should be. The winner over FuelWatch is the ACCC. Kevin Rudd standing firm the scheme will go ahead based on the competition watchdog's advice over other key departments. What we've seen this week is stubborn Kevin, control freak Kevin, we've seen the real Kevin Rudd. The Government's honeymoon period seems to be the major casualty in the war over rising petrol prices, the Prime Minister is already bracing himself for the public backlash. You take a whacking from time to time. I imagine also that we'll take a whacking in next week's opinion polls. Brad Hodson, Ten News. Archaeologists have wrapped up their mission to unearth the story of Ned Kelly. 7,500 artifacts have been brought to the surface more than 12 decades after the famous shoot-out. Almost 128 years to the day after Ned Kelly's last stand Glenrowan is giving up its secrets. Unbelievable! Well done all. After a month of trawling and scrapping the real story of the famous shoot-out at the Anne Jones Inn is emerging room-by-room. So this is the place - the iconic image of the four guys standing shoulder to shoulder in their armour engaging with the police who are running from the railway station. they've gone through a doorway here We've found into a back room reasonably secure because the bullets aren't penetrating through here. I guess it was really hair on the back of the neck stuff realising this was happening - the last hours of the members of the Kelly Gang. A pile of spent cartridges found at the back of the site

paints a vivid picture of the desperate gunfight - the gang reloading as the fire raged in front of them. When you are holding an artefact, a discarded cartridge, the last time it was held it was fired by a weapon in the middle of the battle. By far the most exciting find is a tiny copper percussion cap possibly fired by the infamous bushranger himself. While the archeologists here have sifted through hundreds of items from the fateful siege they're also digging up the truth surrounding Ned Kelly's final hours. You can see the ferociousness of it. You can see how small this building is. That is an amazing experience. Gerard Scholten, Ten News.

As the mother of a child with ADHD, Diana Scott-Waine knows well the difference the drug Ritalin makes. The best way to put it would be to say relief from the condition. Diana's daughter Isabella was five when she was diagnosed with the disorder and medicated. Only, now she's aged 11, Isabella wants out. I benefit from her taking it but she's feeling a bit, the best way I can put it is wired, The debate over whether to medicate or not is now happening in many family homes after the number of children as young as toddlers on Ritalin was revealed. 245 5-year-olds, almost 7,000 6-10-year-olds, I'm worried about children being medicated where's there's not clear evidence of the benefit to them. Paediatricians like Dr Michael Kohn point out is strictly controlled in NSW. I've been asked to review a case of a 5-year-old who toddled out the front door and was stopped by a car, so we know these young ones are very much at risk. Doctors say medication is a last resort after all other strategies have failed. And in many cases it's the only way of ensuring that child's safety. Research is now under way into the impact of medication on child patients. Amber Muir, Ten News. One of the world's last uncontacted tribes

But now a record number of ex-pats are returning to Australia as the credit crunch continues to bite in Britain. For years, the sky's been the limit for ambitious Australians fast-tracking their careers in London's busy finance district. But times have changed in the Square Mile and so have the job opportunities. Most people are saying there's going to be a definite slowdown. Some people are saying it's the check in the market that needed to happen. Recent research suggests this year less Australians are looking for city jobs in London and more are leaving. Ryan Andrews feels there may be better work for him back in Melbourne. As the global credit crunch hits, especially with major media companies, the first thing they cut is spending. This isn't a trend that In fact, as Britain's financial sector continues to struggle and Australia's excel, it's expected more and more expats will be packing up and heading home. In fact, more Australians are leaving London from any other nationality than workers and fewer of them are seeking to go there. And it's no coincidence the Australian dollar is now stronger against the sterling than it has been in more than a decade. James Perry-Keene is one of 34,000 Aussies who have left London in the past 12 months. It's an ample opportunity now in Australia to come home and earn Australian dollars. following the London bombing but now it's fears about job security that's driving them out. 62% of those Australians that are looking to head back, are looking to head home for employment-related, career-related opportunities. But it's not all gloom for Aussies thinking of heading to London. Temporary contracts are the best bet. What we've seen is a number of those large organisations reasonably reluctant to take on permanent hires but happy to commit to 6- to 9-month contracts.

Jaqueline Maddock, Ten News. With the latest finance news, here's Ed DeSalis from BankWest.

Meanwhile, Maroons skipper Darren Lockyer makes his comeback from knee surgery tonight for the Broncos against Parramatta.

He's a pretty honest character too. of where he's at after the game. He'll give us a fair appreciation so just a bit of match fitness under his belt tonight and a bit of confidence for the big games.

Along the way you're going to have your ups and downs and criticism and I've certainly had my fair share of that. But to know you've come out the other side certainly gives you a sense of satisfaction. Ahead of Monday night's SFS blockbuster with Wests Tigers, the Roosters are upset at claims they are can only score tries from kicks. They are the NRL's number one in that category with 22. One thing I know is we've scored plenty of points this year - We're on top of the ladder and we work hard on what we do here at the Roosters and whether it's through kicks or passes I don't think it matters. But they better keep practising. The Tigers have conceded just five tries from kicks - the best in the league. Adam Hawse, Ten News. Super 14 final tomorrow. It's a rematch of the 2005 The Waratahs take on the Crusaders in New Zealand. And today the Christchurch fans turned out to wish their team and their departing coach all the best ahead of the big game. They rode in by horseback promoting this week's box office hit in Christchurch - Robbie Deans and his Last Crusade. Sadly, Robbie's leaving us. Hopefully he won't get those Aussies beating us this year.

They love their Robbie - the soon-to-be our Robbie. In Christchurch they've even made him a flag. Just give him all the best and good luck over in Aussie but hope he gives us one more title. Today was, guess, yep, that's right - red and black day. You don't really like it, do you? I think he's scared of the wig. Possibly, but this boy wasn't. Who's going to win tomorrow night? Crusaders.

By how many? Oh, at least 10 points. But the Waratahs, two off the mark, aren't about to let face paint and streamers interrupt their preparations. It's obviously an emotional day for them. As I said we've been involved in a few of those emotional days in the past few years and they've turned out to be good for us so we'll see what happens . Who knows, they might even stop the great Robbie of Canterbury running away with the treasure one last time. Paul Cochrane, Ten News. Star Swans defender Tadhg Kennelly makes his return to action against Richmond at the SCG on Sunday. Kennelly missed the match against Port Adelaide last week

after dislocating his knee cap in the win over Essendon.

Coach Paul Roos delighted he'll be lining up alongside running defenders Martin Mattner and Nick Malceski. We know what each one of them can do individually. We don't know yet what they can all three do together. But individually they are three very good players. The Richmond game also holds the tantalising prospect of Adam Goodes lining up on Tigers star Matthew Richardson. Lleyton Hewitt has cruised through his second round clash at the French Open. He disposed of American Mardy Fish in just over two hours. The 25th seed took advantage of his opponent's 51 unforced errors to close out the match 6-4, 6-3, 6-2. All in all I felt like I didn't serve great at the start of the match but my serve picked up as the match went on. Pretty heavy conditions out there as well. Casey Dellaqua also progressed in as many days and tonight will play her third match a Spanish qualifier. when she takes on We recently marvelled at the teenage girls who fought their way onto the Aussie Olympic swimming team.

Boasting a body teenagers would be proud of, 41-year-old mother Dara Torres

is preparing to take on kids more than half her age in one last shot at Olympic glory. An incredible fifth Games, 24 years after her first. I get asked that a lot. Like, why, why are you doing this and the best answer I can give is because I can. To keep fit while pregnant, Dara headed to the pool. These middle-aged men would start racing me and I'd look down at my belly and say, "What are they doing? "Can't they see I've got six months belly here?" That fired up the four-time Olympic gold medallist. She took on all comers at last year's US Nationals. COMMENTATOR: A new American record. That was her own American record, set eight years ago. Looking at what she does in the weight room,

outside the pool, in the pool, and she has a daughter - it's unbelievable what she does, definitely. Unfortunately, in this day and age, almost every amazing achievement arouses suspicion.

Aussie world-beaters Libby Trickett and Cate Campbell are favourites for Beijing, though if she makes it there, Torres will have already won.
