The actress was snapped leaving London's famous Abbey Road Studios cradling the 3-month-old. Nicole and husband Keith Urban have refused multimillion-dollar magazine offers for photos of Sunday Rose.

This week, the 41-year-old actress attributed her miracle pregnancy to a waterhole near Kununurra where she swam during the filming of her latest movie 'Australia'.

The premiership and the party, when we come back.

OK. Chop, chop. MAN: Pack it up. Simply Tea is for whenever. Tea is for Twinings.

Now with sport, here's Simon Reeve. Hawthorn fans are partying like it's 1991. Thousands of Hawks fanatics flocked to Melbourne's Federation Square last night to celebrate the Hawks' drought-breaking premiership success their first in 17 years. It is slowly

It is slowly sinking in now. The

guys are pretty relaxed and keep

going on after here. Yeah, it is all I dreamt of and more. The triumphant Hawthorn stars will be formally presented to the club's loyal band of supporters at their spiritual home Glenferrie Oval, later today. No doubt they'll be nursing a few sore heads. From the beaten brigade Cats coach Mark Thompson had one simple message for disappointed fans - stick solid.

It doesn't mean we are going to

Coming to watch, you know, it gets

you toey, my body feels fresh. Yeah,

it would be nice. Cousins still needs to be cleared by the AFL

before he can consider a return. To NRL, and Manly has earned a shot at premiership redemption. The Sea Eagles booked themselves a Grand Final rematch with the Melbourne Storm last night emphatically ending the New Zealand Warriors' fairytale finals run. It was a complete performance from Des Hasler's men. They ran in 7 tries to 1 against the Kiwis including one that would have done the Harlem Globetrotters proud.

COMMENTATOR: And then a freakish from Stewart for Matai. That's just too good, that is too good. Manly skipper Matt Orford left the field late with an ankle injury but the diminutive half says he's a certainty to line up in the decider. The fallout continues from Craig Bellamy's scathing attack on the league's handling of the Cameron Smith incident

with reports judiciary members are considering legal action

against the Storm. The NRL issued an unprecedented $50,000 fine to Melbourne for what it termed a 'cheap shot' at the judiciary. The allegations were baseless and they bordered on hysteria. A number of tribunal members now plan to take legal action

unless the club apologises. Aussie cycling fans may be robbed of the chance to see American legend Lance Armstrong. The seven-time Tour de France champion

plans to resume his celebrated career at the Tour Down Under in January. But cycling's governing body may block his return

because he hasn't met anti-doping requirements. UCI rules stipulate a rider must be in their anti-doping program for six months before competing.

To the Premier League now and Merseyside derbies are always played with plenty of feeling.

This morning was no exception. Socceroos star Tim Cahill was sent off as his side Everton slumped to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool. In other results, Hull shocked league leaders Arsenal with wins also to Manchester United, Chelsea, West Ham, West Brom, Aston Villa and Blackburn. Cahill got his marching orders late in the second half when this crude effort on Xabi Alonso earned him an early shower. COMMENTATOR: Red card, Tim Cahill. Spanish international Fernando Torres starred for Liverpool netting both goals in the 2-0 triumph. In last night's A-League Adelaide was too strong for Newcastle getting home 2-0.

The battle for the Formula One drivers championship is heating up.

Ferrari's Felipe Massa trails leader Lewis Hamilton by just one point but will start in front of the Brit in tonight's Singapore Grand Prix after reeling off a sizzling lap in qualifying. COMMENTATOR: Can he take pole? Yes, he can. A stunning lap from Felipe Massa. Aussie star Mark Webber will start his Red Bull from 13th on the grid.

fantastic. Toey. You should whisk

him away to Kununurra for the weekend. Now to Sunday's weather. A front over the south-east will weaken into a trough, producing hot, dry conditions. Behind that, cooler south-west winds will develop, with a few coastal showers in the country's south. Hot northerly winds will sweep the Top End. Taking a look at the capital cities - and Brisbane should be fine and warm today.

The mercury will climb even further tomorrow, ahead of a cool change on Tuesday. Hot, dry and windy in Sydney today, top of 33 degrees.

But an overnight southerly change will cool things down tomorrow and it'll stay that way for a couple of days.

For Melbourne, the chance of late rain today, clearing tomorrow. More isolated showers are expected mid week. In Adelaide, the chance of a morning and evening shower today. Temperatures will remain sub-20 degrees.

Similar conditions tomorrow, but it should start fining up by Tuesday. Just the chance of a morning shower in Perth this Sunday. It should warm up tomorrow, but the rain will hang about. And around the rest of the country, Canberra, fine and sunny today before a cool change tomorrow. Developing showers in Hobart.

And in Darwin, fine and sunny with tops in the 30s.

Let's take a look at what's making papers around the country. And after three months, Nicole Kidman has presented little Sunday Rose to the world -

not that it was by choice. 'News Limited' papers have published the first photos of the actress's daughter and she's the spitting image of her mum. The photos were taken as Kidman left Abbey Road Studios in London. She cradled Sunday Rose close to her chest as the paparazzi snapped the shots,

but the young one was oblivious to the commotion. She'll have to get used to it.

There was controversy because the

baby is dressed in a summer outfit

and the English say she should have

more clothes on. I know from

personal experience it is not a warm

summer. It is a warm summer? No, it

is freezing over there. She does

look purple. Moving on, and British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has crashed the runway at Milan Fashion Week. Fairfax papers report the actor hijacked the Agata Luiz della Prada show, dressed as his new alter ego Bruno to promote his latest movie. Bruno is a bit different to Borat - he's a gay Austrian television presenter. Cohen was quickly pulled off the catwalk by security and taken to a local police station,

but later released without charges.

He looks quite handsome. He looks

handsome when he is not wearing the mankin handsome when he is not wearing the

mankini. Did you hear the name of

And finally, a new British survey has revealed the most difficult tongue-twisters in the English language. "Phenomenon" is our most mispronounced word, followed by "anaesthetist", "remuneration" and "statistics". A poll of 3,000 people found "thesaurus" and "February" were hard to say. Ironically, "pronunciation" also made the list. movie of the week. Nelson would love it P

Welcome back. Also coming up, miniature muscle men. We'll take you inside the controversial new children-only gym.

Will it fix childhood obesity, or just give kids bad body image?

Then, the housewife and hornbag have American cousins. Be the first to see the US version of 'Kath and Kim'. And then, buff by name, buff by nature. We'll go one-on-one with Shia LaBeouf. His new film 'Eagle Eye' is our movie of the week.

Right now though,

let's get the latest news from Sharyn Ghidella. Good morning. Legendary actor Paul Newman has lost his long battle with lung cancer. The Oscar winner died at his home in Connecticut surrounded by close family and friends. The 83-year-old starred in more than 50 motion pictures including 'The Long Hot Summer'. It's all those boys hollering for you every night. Newman sometimes starred alongside his wife, Joanne Woodward with whom he shared one of Hollywood's rare long-term marriages. His last on-screen role was in 'Road to Perdition'. His brand, Paul Newman's Own, has raised more than $200 million for charity. US President George W. Bush has apologised to the American public for the $840 billion taxpayer-funded financial bailout which could be approved as early as tomorrow. The Senate's top Democrat says there's been significant progress overnight but there are still 15 issues to be resolved. The Government asks you to pay for mistakes on Wall Street. It does not seem fair, and I understand that, and if it were possible to let every responsible firm on Wall Street fail without affecting you or your family, I would do it. The financial crisis dominated yesterday's highly anticipated debate between Presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama. The brother of a missing Melbourne backpacker will arrive in Croatia today to help retrace his sister's steps. 21-year-old Britt Lapthorne vanished 10 days ago

while travelling though the city of Dubrovnik. She has not used her bank account, mobile phone or email since she disappeared. Her brother Darren is calling on all Australians of Croatian decent to help by telling relatives back home to keep an eye out for Britt. Dozens of evacuated residents were allowed to return to their homes overnight after a fire in Sydney's eastern suburbs. Police set up an exclusion zone when bomb-making chemicals were found

in a Woollahra apartment block yesterday morning. There are chemicals, or what we believe to be chemicals, inside the premises and therefore we are not taking any precautions and therefore we have various combat agencies present to assist us. A 54-year-old man,

believed to have recently been sacked from his job, was pulled from the burning unit.

He's been charged with possessing explosives with the intent to destroy and will face court later today. It could be months before

A Chinese astronaut has become the first in his country's history to complete a space walk. Mission Commander Zhai Zhigang's small step has been described as a giant leap for the emerging space power.

The details of how the launch of

this mission had gone were released

before their spacecraft had even

taken off. You could be forgiven for

wondering if these pictures are taken off. You could be forgiven for

real. Zhai Zhigang emerged from his

spacecraft put China in the space

and NASA fear it will be a very long

time before they return.

The world has caught its first glimpse

of Nicole Kidman's baby daughter Sunday Rose. The pair was snapped leaving the Abbey Road Studios in London. Three-month-old Sunday Rose was oblivious to the cameras as she slept peacefully in her mother's arms. Sunday Rose is the first biological child for Nicole and husband Keith Urban. She has two adopted children with former husband Tom Cruise.

And now with sport, here's Simon Reeve. They've been waiting for 17 years

but Hawks fans are certainly making up for lost time.

Thousands flocked to Melbourne's Federation Square last night to salute their premiership heroes following Hawthorn's drought-breaking win over the Cats at the MCG yesterday.

There is only 22 premierships

medallions. 23 premiership

medallion. I do wish they could

bring out a lot more because so many bring out a lot more because so many went into it. And there's no end in sight for the Hawks. They'll be formally presented to the club's loyal band of supporters at their spiritual home Glenferrie Oval, later today. Still with AFL and fallen West Coast star Ben Cousins has confirmed he's keen to return to football but is unable to guarantee he'll remain drug-free.

The associated risk with addiction

and it being a chronic relapse

condition but if given the

opportunity I certainly don't intend

to let the club down. Cousins needs to be cleared by the AFL before he can make a comeback. Manly has claimed the remaining place in the NRL Grand Final

and they did it easily, smashing the Warriors at ANZ Stadium last night to set up a rematch of last year's decider against Melbourne. The victory prolongs the career of Sea Eagles veteran Steven Menzies for one more week and gives the backrower a chance to bow out with a premiership.

That is why he the second highest

try scorer in rugby league history. There's no fairytale ending for Ruben Wiki - the Warriors star retiring after 312 top-grade appearances. One of the biggest boilovers in the Premier League history this morning. Hull has upset the unbeaten Arsenal knocking the Gunners out of top spot. In other results - wins to Manchester United, Chelsea, West Ham, Liverpool, Aston Villa, Blackburn and West Brom. Hull scored twice in the space of four minutes to claim maximum points at the Emirates Stadium, including this wonder strike from Brazilian Geovanni. In last night's A-League, Adelaide downed a 10-man Newcastle outfit 2-0. And in the NBL overnight, Sydney has recorded its first win of the season beating Adelaide in Canberra,

while Townsville has produced a stunning comeback to overcome Cairns in the north Queensland derby.

My favourite Paul Newman film is

'Long Hot Suler'. My favourite

'Long Hot Suler'. My favourite was Butch Cassidy. The first movie I

saw. He was gorgeous. As a young man

- Even older. $

- Even older. $200 million for

charities out of those sauces. You

can still support his charity. Now for Sunday's weather - Showers in Cairns. Fine and 29 in Brisbane. A warm 33 in Sydney. Sunny in Canberra. Partly cloudy in Melbourne. Showers and 17 in Hobart. The chance of a shower or two in Adelaide. 21 in Perth. And fine and sunny in Darwin with a top of 33 degrees. Just ahead, the news in focus, including the big financial bail-out - what's taking so long? Also up next, is Ben Cousins really making a comeback? And the real life rocket man. His extraordinary journey, when we return.

Hollywood is mourning the death of a legend this morning. Oscar winner Paul Newman has lost his long battle with cancer.

He was 83. Reporter Rahni Sadler is in the United States. Rahni, good morning. He'd been sick for some time, hadn't he?

He was sick for a very long time but

he was such an intensely private man

that he didn't want anybody to know.

He passed away with his friends and

family around him - just the way he

wanted to go. There were

wanted to go. There were rumours that he was very sick from May. He

looked very unwell and he pulled out

of production on the movie Of Mice

and Men. He had lung cancer and he

was a long-material chain smoker. He

was an actor, a director, a soldier

and a fill lan throwist. Robert

Redford said I lost a real friend.

My life and this country is better

for him being in it. Sally Field

said that God makes better people

and he was one of them.

and he was one of them. He didn't

want anyone to Newman was 27 when he first appeared on television before quickly graduating to film hits like 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' and 'A Long Hot Summer'. It's all those boys hollerin' for you every night. Then came 'The Hustler', 'Cool Hand Luke', 'Towering Inferno', 'The Sting'

and 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid'.

The next time I say let's got some place like Bolivia, let's go some place like Bolivia. Next time. In 1986 he scored an Oscar in 'The Color of Money'. I'm back! Even though he is better known by their grandparents, children today know Paul Newman's voice. I know his type, race car.

Cars were his passion. He raced into his 70s. Well, it's like life. There's a lot of courtesy out there and a lot of gorillas.

Paul Newman's last onscreen role was in 'Road to Perdition'. Sons were put on this earth to trouble their fathers. He lost son Scott to a drug overdose and is survived by five children and wife of 50 years Joanne Woodward. Generosity will outlive him. Paul Newman's Own made more than $200 million for charity. It's enough that you just have talent,

you gotta have character. Worry.

Among the tributes we heard today

was from one of his five daughters. " was from one of his five daughters.

"Our father was a symbol of

humility. He was intensely private

and quietly succeeded beyond measure

and impacting the lives and impacting the lives of so many

with his generosity.

with his generosity." Rahni, in a recent interview, Paul Newman marvelled at still being alive. He said he couldn't believe he'd survived the excesses of the Hollywood lifestyle?

He did get stuck in the Hollywood

lifestyle. He didn't like it very

much. He spent many of the last

years of his life raising his kids

away from Hollywood. He away from Hollywood. He said he had

a struggle with alcohol. One thing

people didn't know was that he was

in the navy. He wanted to be a pilot

but rejected because he was colour

blind. His pilot had an ear

infection and everyone died. He

really was lucky to be alive. So sorry

sorry to lose him. He was a

fantastic actor and a fantastic person. American lawmakers are this morning a step closer to signing off on an $840 billion rescue plan to save Wall Street. Congressional aides worked late into the night,

and could reach agreement as early as tomorrow. Michael Pascoe from The Eureka Report joins us now. Good morning. Michael, what's the precise status?

Court and politics still. The

Court and politics still. The congressional Republicans seem to be

the stumbling block here. It is not

just a presidential election but

Congress. The Republicans look like they are trying to stay a step removed from the bailout because it is not playing totally well in America. They are not going with the agenda, with bargaining. Why are they holding it up? For the benefit of taxpayers? That is their argument. It is not the perfect plan. The plan that was put forward was not perfect. The Democrats have a few changes that they want. The represent kabz want a mortgage insurance plan that Wall Street would pay for. That is not a bad idea but it is a bit too late. It is not the quick hit that the financial markets need. Meanwhile, George W. Bush is spruiking the rescue plan. He's telling Americans it's not for Wall Street, it's for their street. Will the plan work? That is totally the case. That is

what the Republican Congressmen are

not getting. No one is feeling well

disposed on Wall Street. If Wall Street goes down it will take

Street goes down it will take the

American economy with it and then

everyone suffers a lot more pain.

There is that terrible problem of

people wanting revenge on the big

bankers and not realising they could be shooting

be shooting themselves not just in

the foot but through the heart. What

do you make of this plan? Will it

work? It will help. It is not a

quick fix. It is an immediate

circuit breaker. I rather like the

George Soris idea that the $

George Soris idea that the $700

billion would be better

billion would be better going into

recap the banks. America gets hung

up on Government. This the next best

option. Snot perfect. The Democrats

have decent reforms, not trusting

the administration entirely to throw

the money around. That will help.

There is another stumbling block.

Paulson was the chief Paulson was the chief executive

officer of Goldman Sachs, one of the

banks that got us in this trouble A

an extraordinary situation. Thank

an extraordinary situation. Thank you for talking with us. Over in Europe, a Swiss adventurer has made history this weekend crossing the English Channel using a jetpack. Yves Rossy is a real-life "rocket man". He jumped out of a small plane over Calais in France with a fuel-powered wing strapped to his back.

It took him 13 minutes to cross the Channel, reaching speeds of up to 200km/h. Nuala Hafner is our UK correspondent. Nuala, good morning. This is an incredible feat. What inspired him to do it?

Good morning. I think looking at his

outfit a lot of people would say outfit a lot of people would say Bus

Lightyear. He is an engineer and

pilot who is very in love with the

idea of flying. This is something he

worked on in his garage in

Switzerland for years and years. It

was 99 years ago that the aviator

was the first man to fly a plane

across the Channel. That

across the Channel. That is the plan

that Yves Rossy followed yesterday

and was able to do it with a single

seems too simple. They are made of

kevlar. There are two care seen

kevlar. There are two care seen engines but there is no steering

device. So he can turn the engines

on or off but he has to stao purely

with his head and his body and that

is why this attempt was called off

twice. If there was any cloud, he

would end up in the

would end up in the drink. Is he

planning for feats like this one? Is he

he going to cross the Atlantic next?

He has to go back to work on Monday.

He works for Swiss International Air. "

Air. "What did you do on the weekend? Air. "What did you do on the

weekend?" He wants to fly across

of these things performing acrobatics for

acrobatics for everyone. He thinks

that once they can master the

mechanicals that everyone could have

their own jetpack. It sounds fun.

Can you imagine what will happen if

you let little boys loose with these

things? I am thinking of you. Forget

little boys. I will little boys. I will need one bigger

than that, I am a little heavier

than Yves Rossy. Hawthorn is recovering from a big night of celebrations. The team snatched victory from reigning AFL premiers Geelong in a competitive Grand Final at the MCG. The score was level for most of the game, before Hawthorn streaked ahead in the third quarter. More than 100,000 spectators saw the Hawks notch their first premiership in 17 years. Mark Beretta is commiserating at the stadium. Hello, Beretts.

Are you OK? A little bit of therapy

and I will be alright.

Congratulations to Hawthorn. The MCG

has rarely looked better. Just over

100,000 fans. The Hawks turned on a

show. They played Geelong at their

own game. They own game. They were hard at the ball

and enthusiastic and worked as a

team. They overcame the benchmark

teal so they have plenty to

celebrate. Shane Crawford, the

longest player, the longest wait

longest player, the longest wait ever to get a premiership medal. And

a great story about Staurt Dew a great story about Staurt Dew who

played in Port Adelaide took a photo

on his phone and sent it around.

They have had a great celebration.

They are at Glenferrie Oval and then

fly down to Tasmania and they will

have a celebration

have a celebration at Aurora stadium

have a celebration at Aurora stadium

and then come home. Not so cleary

for Geelong. I wonder how the main

street of Geelong is this The Hawks overcame a series of injuries. Who was sidelined? Morning S

Trent Croad went to hospital. Stress

fracture in his foot. They are

dealing with it. It will probably be

the least painful stress the least painful stress fracture of

all time because like the rest of

the players, he will be celebrating.

Geelong, I had the job of emceeing

their event last night and having a

Geelong, I had the job of emceeing

chat with Tom Harley and Mark

chat with Tom Harley and Mark Thomson, the coach. They are

inconsolable. They can't understand

what happened. They kicked 23 behinds. More than behinds. More than twice as many

behinds as goals. When you go

through the stats, Geelong won on

the scoreboard but they didn't win

where it counted on the scoreboard.

They are keen to regroup. When They are keen to regroup. When you

get a group of players like this

together, you have the potential to

win premierships. That is the big

mission for them next year. First-year forward Cyril Rioli was a standout.

How did he impact the game?

He was brilliant. Just an inspiring

young player. When you have a player

like that come into the Grand Final,

you don't know what to expect. This

is where careers are made. A couple

of beautiful goals. Seized the

moment. This is a young guy we moment. This is a young guy we will

watch develop into one of the great

champions in the AFL. He had the

springboard yesterday. Ben Cousins

plotting a return to AFL? Yes, he

has to go through the process of

getting the rubber stamp but he is

making all the right noises. It has

making all the right noises. It has been an interesting orchestrated campaign over campaign over the last couple of

days. He appeared at the AFL lunch

and telling his story and showing

parts of his documentary and was at

the Brownlow with his mother and

appeared on Seven. There is a campaign

campaign for Ben Cousins to get back

in the AFL. Where he is going is

still a mystery. I must say it still a mystery. I must say it is

pretty much 50/50. Half support it

and half say he is not ready. He

would have to prove himself again

but good luck to him.

but good luck to him. Commiserations. Thanks for getting

up early to chat with us. Well done,

up early to chat with us. Well done, Hawks. I hope he can make a

successful comeback.

successful comeback. He said that he

can't guarantee that he won't fall

back. That is an admission that,

yes, he has had a problem. That self-knowledge. Coming up, the controversial new gym for children. Plus, the world's most haunted house. Would you stay a night? But after the break, the news headlines and the Riley Diary. This is Weekend Sunrise on the Seven Network.

Hello. Here's what made news in our region this week... The capital mourned the loss of Canberra icon .. Peter Leonard after he lost his battle with cancer. He was described as a loving man by family. A 25-year-old Melbourne man was extradited to the ACT to face

court for allegedly kicking and punching a New South Wales man at Summernats earlier this year. Clothes from a murder case were found at a north Canberra home and Cooma tip. Rebecca Anne Massey's been charged with the stabbing murder of a woman at Charnwood in July. The Rudd government's refused to explain why a Canberra journalist's Braddon home was raided. Philip Dorling wrote a story in June about Australian spy targets. Hundreds of Canberrans came out to Civic Square to welcome home our Paralympic and Olympic heroes. And Raiders Ben Jones has hung up his boots from the NRL because of family reasons. See you again soon. So this is the little runabout for work? It's an investment. OK. Let me have a drive. What if you have a prang? We're with GIO. But our maximum no-claim discount... It's protected for life. Forget about the car. What about you? You did get a GIO Green Slip? Yeah. Then it comes with extra-driver protection. For cover you can't argue with, switch to GIO to get $30 off our car insurance when you combine it with our CTP.

Shortly, the Riley Diary. Then later, the gym junkies who are still in primary school and the controversial place letting them work out. Plus, Shia La-WHO? Our one-on-one with Hollywood's next Indiana Jones. And after 9, an '80s icon. Cyndi Lauper performs her new single. But right now, let's get a news hit from Sharyn. Good morning again, everyone. Hollywood screen legend Paul Newman has lost his long battle with cancer. The Oscar winner died at his home in Connecticut surrounded by family and friends. He starred in more than 50 motion pictures including 'The Long Hot Summer'. The White House is confident its $840 billion Wall Street rescue deal

could be approved as early as tomorrow. US President George W. Bush has urged American taxpayers to get behind the bail-out scheme. And a Sydney man will appear in court today charged with possessing explosive devices with intent to destroy. Bomb-making chemicals were found in his Woollahra unit after fire broke out yesterday. Dozens of residents were allowed back into their homes overnight after the complex was declared safe. And making sports headlines this morning - Hawthorn fans are painting the town gold and brown this morning

following the Hawks' drought-breaking premiership success over the Cats at the MCG yesterday. Thousands packed Melbourne's Federation Square last night to cheer their heroes with celebrations set to continue later today at the Hawks' old home Glenferrie Oval. Manly are through to their second-straight NRL Grand Final after emphatically ending the Warriors' fairytale finals run at the Sydney Football Stadium last night. The Sea Eagles will take on Melbourne in a rematch of last year's decider. Manly have been installed slight favourites with the bookies. It's been a Merseyside Derby to forget for Socceroos star Tim Cahill this morning. The Everton midfielder has been red-carded for a rough challenge on Xabi Alonso in his side's 2-0 loss to Liverpool. Spanish international Fernando Torres starred for the Reds scoring both their goals. And the weather this Sunday - Fine and 29 in Brisbane. A warm 33 in Sydney. Sunny in Canberra. Partly cloudy in Melbourne. Showers and 17 in Hobart. The chance of a shower or two in Adelaide. 21 in Perth. And fine and sunny in Darwin with a top of 33 degrees.

I think your grandfather just I think your grandfather just tapped

me on the shoulder. After 9:00 I

me on the shoulder. After 9:00 I

will be eating 28 boiled eggs. I

spent the morning cutting heads off

the parking meters. Now to federal politics, and Kevin Rudd is back in the country this morning, after a whirlwind week away. The PM missed Parliament to fly off to New York.

His every move is documented in the Riley Diary. ('LEAVING ON A JET PLANE' PLAYS) They say records are there to be broken and this week the Kevinator got the gold medal for the most time spent out of the country by a Prime Minister. Yes, with storm clouds gathering over our economy he waved goodbye to the country for the 10th time in 10 months. # I'm leavin' on a jet plane

# I don't know when I'll be back again # Oh, babe, I hate to go. # And suddenly the man who came to prominence as Kevin '07 had a new name. Kevin 747 seems to be a very good little tagline for him. The 'Prime Tourist' is the guy down in the other end of the building. The waving goodbye on the plane is starting to worry people a little bit.

But, once in New York he took his place in the new world order at the UN. In the back row, just behind Zimbabwe and Zambia. Before indulging in the diplomatic equivalent of speed dating. Trying to meet 30 people in 30 hours to discuss the financial crisis, including this bloke. And this, no doubt, very important guy. And...umm...aww... Santa Claus? Oh! We know this bloke. It's Rupert Murdoch. Missy Higgins was also in the Big Apple. Campaigning against poverty which created some Missy mischief back home.

I think Mr Rudd will probably get more time with Missy Higgins than Mr Paulson.

That's Henry Paulson, the US Treasury Secretary. You don't understand the important role that Missy Higgins plays in the Senate. Yah! The PM's office said it was all a load of Missy information. He didn't meet her. ('SCAR' PLAYS) # Doesn't that make you shiver, He didn't meet Henry Paulson, either. But he did meet this guy. We don't know who he is. And the Government celebrated AFL Grand Final weekend by giving Malcolm Turnbull the hip and shoulder. Poor old Malcolm had trouble on radio saying who he barracked for. Well, I, I, I have to confess I vote for, in um Australian Rules, the Roosters. Who of course, aren't in the Grand Final. Sorry, sorry, the Swans. One Swan, who used to be a Rooster, got a kick out of that. Well, I...

I have to confess I vote for... I hmmm.. support in the in Australian Rules, the Roosters. There's only one rooster in this chamber that we're aware of,

and that's him over there. There are no roosters in the AFL Grand Final, Mr Speaker there've been plenty of Swans, there've been plenty of Hawks, but there are no roosters Mr Speaker. I wouldn't be surprised if he was out there next congratulating Ricky Ponting on winning the Brownlow Medal!

And finally the Kevinator big New York moment arrived addressing the entire world at the UN. Well, that very small part of the entire world that bothered to turn up to hear him speak. Yes, it was another first for our groundbreaking PM, as the city they say never sleeps... ..finally met it's match.

Mark Riley is in Melbourne this Sunday, good morning.

Did this UN visit achieve anything?

Well, the UN visit probably not a

great deal. The principle purpose of

the trip first was to go there and

speak with Kyoto to get

speak with Kyoto to get the cope en

Hague en part back on track but that

was swept around by what was

happening on Wall Street. In that

vein, not a lot was achieved. The

side meetings were probably

important in that the other

countries of the world were able to

share their views on how to

innoculate with the market

happenings. Other word laolders and

Sarkozy and quite a few others were

there. I think the principle purpose

was completely overshadowed. But

they would be very interested in

climate change. Let's talk about the

local bailout. local bailout. $

See you guys. I - you knew that the

See you guys. I - you knew that the Roosters were not in the AFL. Poor

Malcolm Turnbull. Well 'Eagle Eye' is Hollywood's latest action thriller. We'll go one-on-one with star Shia LaBeouf in 10 minutes. But next, starting young. The controversial new gym for kids when we come back.

Morning, sweetheart. Morning. VOICEOVER: Now with more wholegrain and more fibre... Don't panic. ..Milo cereal gives your kids even more nutritious energy.

And when you put yourself in your kids' shoes... Wait! (Pants) ..you can see why they need it.

Sorry, sir. (Child shouts)

And Milo cereal still has the same great taste they love. Now you get even more with Milo cereal. At Holden, we're doing something about rising fuel prices. sold and delivered before the end of October.

So it's the perfect time to pick up a tough new 4x4 diesel Colorado with over $4,000 worth of extra value.

Once upon a time,

kids would get their exercise in the backyard or at school. But now, parents are going to extreme measures

to counter the childhood obesity crisis. They're sending their kids to gyms. Children as young as six are running on treadmills, riding exercise bikes and lifting weights. It's all part of a plan to get young people in shape and improve their lifestyles. These specially designed fitness centres have opened in the US, Europe and now Australia. Cameron Russell is the operations manager for World Gym in Melbourne and he joins us now. Good morning. Why can't kids simply play outdoors?

I don't think it is a matter that

they can't. I just think it is a

matter these days that they don't.

matter these days that they don't. In vair wli it comes to providing an

opportunity where they can come into

a controlled and fully professional

en vaournt where they can learn the

activities and get a lifestyle and

live a better life. Is it a question

of their parents dropping them to

the centre where you then take over and the

and the parents come to pick them up

later? Is that how it works? It does

and it is like that. We have a fully

supervised environment S we have an

assessment and help them understand

the rules and how to use the

equipment and understanding where to

go if there is a go if there is a problem and so

forth. On top of that we ensure that

it is not being abused by ensuring

that the parents are not just

dropping them off and using them as

- A creche. Exactly. Some health

experts believe it promotes a

negative body image too early. How

do you respond to that? There is no

doubt about it. Years

doubt about it. Years ago there was

a lot of controversy regarding body

image. Like anything, if you do it

in moderation and supervised the

benefits are enormous. We do not

encourage body building. We keep it

is to a time period and we suit it

to the understanding and lifestyle

of the child. Do the children enjoy

the workouts? They seem to be having

a bit of fun on the machines? The

environment is totally catered for

the children. It is colour-coded,

interactive. It is fun and they can

interact with other kids. They interact with other kids. They play

games. Everything is towards the

enjoyment. Kids are the hardest -

the hardest people in order to keep

constantly occupied. In that

respect, we do constantly have to

supervise and make it fun and that

is the best way to do it, ensuring

that not only are they learning

lifestyle and getting the benefits,

in a lot of respects, they don't

know it is happening. Quickly, how

safe is it? We saw sft boy doing

that - bench press thing. Lifting

weights when their little muscles

weights when their little muscles and joints are not fully formed. Is

it safe? It is safe. The product we

have been buying is fully researched

in the UK in every respect and every

way. Again, by supervising it and

doing it in moderation, we are

fought full on. We keep it to a

routine. We do it only on specific

hours. We are not open all day. He

we are open from 4 to 7. In every

respect we can keep control of the

environment and ensure nothing is

being abused and in that respect,

the benefits are there, there is no

doubt about it. Thank you, Cameron

Russell. It sounds very interesting.

I hope it goes well for you. As long

as it doesn't become a substitute

for other forms of play. It is not

just about physicality. Learning how

to play outdoors. You hope kids can

still play outdoors. In Australia,

it our beautiful climate. That is

very important. It is about learning

team work and social interaction

when you play with other kids

Getting fresh air in your lungs.

They look like they are having fun.

Who doesn't have fun at the gym? I

don't know. I don't go. Ahead on Weekend Sunrise, the beer brand that has the church in a spin.

Then later, how the right handshake can land you that job. But next, Hollywood's new box office golden boy Shia LaBeouf. 'Eagle Eye' is our movie of the week.

So this is the little runabout for work? It's an investment. OK. Let me have a drive. What if you have a prang? We're with GIO. But our maximum no-claim discount... It's protected for life. Forget about the car. What about you? You did get a GIO Green Slip? Yeah.

Then it comes with extra-driver protection. For cover you can't argue with, switch to GIO to get $30 off our car insurance when you combine it with our CTP.

(LAUGHTER ON TELEVISION) (SNIFFS) (MYSTERIOUS MUSIC)

Spraying air fresheners masks odours while the germs at the source continue to smell. Glen 20 is different. It attacks the source of the odours and kills odour-causing germs on hard surfaces... ..for a clean, fresh home.

DOG BARKS Here you go, mate. TOY SQUEAKS SQUEAK! SQUEAK! Barry doesn't always make the best choices, but one of his better ones was to connect his home to natural gas. He's saving money, reducing his carbon footprint and providing his family with endless hot water.

Have you got gas? Visit us at: SQUEAK!

Perth early showers. 21 degrees. We

will be in Perth shortly for the telethon. Well at just 22, he's one of Hollywood's biggest action heroes. Shia LaBeouf has cracked the whip with Indiana Jones

and fought robots in 'Transformers'. His latest movie is 'Eagle Eye', a big-budget Hitchcockian thriller. Our Hollywood correspondent Nelson Aspen has more. Nelson, good morning. This one looks action-packed. Good morning, guys. 'Eagle Eye' is a non-stop thrill ride. I think that's what we've all come to expect from Shia. LADY: Come on. Just a second - sorry. Jerry Shaw thinks he's hit the jackpot. A mystery bank deposit making him rich. Fingers crossed, huh? But he soon realises he's been set up. (PHONE RINGS) Hello? WOMAN: The FBI will arrive at your apartment in 30 seconds. You must leave the premises.

Who is this? None of this is mine! A very humble Shia LaBeouf plays the ordinary man thrust into an extraordinary situation. This is all on your shoulders in a way, do you feel pressure like that when you're shooting it? Yeah, but you've got, like, 40 dudes holding your shoulders up. Everyone's involved. It's rare that you, at lunchtime, the entire crew jumps into a trailer to watch dailies, like "Look at what we've accomplished", not "What I've accomplished" or "What he did." It's a very collaborative thing, it's like going to summer camp with a group of your best friends. WOMAN: We told you to run. Who are you? You have 10 seconds.

What are you talking about? Get down now.

Michelle Monahan plays a single mum in similar danger. PHONE: Rachel Holloman, look in the window. Would you risk your life for your son? Who are you? There's a car parked at the corner of this block. The keys are in the ignition. Start walking. Now what about Shia? how was your relationship... Awesome! ..are you best buds now?

We are kind of! We are very, very good friends.

When you spend so much time with somebody - you know, we spent six months together, really close quarters - doing physical work and really pulling each other through this, you can't help but bond and I really respect Shia, he's a great actor. These two strangers must work together to stop a faceless enemy. Are you the woman who called me on the phone? She called you too? Oscar winner Billy Bob Thornton is the FBI agent on their tail. I don't care who you work for. No matter what you tell me, you're in a lot of trouble, son. In the production notes it said "Billy Bob's Texan sensibility fits the agent perfectly". what's "the Texan sensibility I thought you were from Arkansas, what's "the Texan sensibility?" I'm confused. Arkansas, we used to call it just a mole on Texas's shoulder. I was raised in Arkansas and Texas so we call people like me "Tex-Arkansans".

'Eagle Eye' is jam-packed with action, special effects and great performances. Hitchcock for new millennium. Well, so far, everything Shia touches turns into box-office gold. So we will just see if he can do it again.

Enjoy your Sunday. Thanks, Nelson. And 'Eagle Eye' is in cinemas now. And there's more entertainment coming your way. In our next hour, Kath and Kim get an American make-over. The US version, later this morning. Plus, Cyndi Lauper performs at Brekky Central. That's an exclusive. But after this, news, sport and weather together. And a night at the world's most haunted house.

Vitamin C and E give me a healthy immune system. I don't know what 'E' stands for, but I'm pretty sure 'C' is for 'chicken'. Shortly on the show, who you gonna call? The real-life ghostbusters were sent in to this mansion. It's so haunted, its owners have fled. In a moment, the things going bump in the night. Also ahead, the Queen wants a pay rise. But who does she ask? And how much more does she need? Then later, from Fountain Lakes to Florida. The American Kath and Kim is coming up. And so is '80s icon Cyndi Lauper. # Oh, girls just wanna have fun. # She'll perform later this hour.

That and Money Changes Everything. Did you Good morning.

Did you are really sing that? No. Hollywood is paying tribue to screen legend Paul Newman. The actor died after a long battle with cancer. The Oscar winner started his career as an actor in the 1950s and went on to become one of the world's most popular stars.

No. Then you jump first. No, I said.

What's the matter with you? I can't

swim. Paul Newman was a humble man in private.

in private.. But on camera he had a

commanding presence. The fall will

probably kill you! This scene

probably kill you! This scene with Robert Redford, one of many with a

place in cinema history. Oh! He

thought his first fit am in 1954 was

so bad that he took out an ad in a

newspaper to apologise. He need not

have. By 1958 he was starring

have. By 1958 he was starring with Elizabeth Taylor. I feel all the

time like a a hot tin roof. Then

jump off. He was amongst best of his

generation, but his career spanned

generation, but his career spanned decades, starring alongside a

decades, starring alongside a young

Tom Cruise to win an Oscar. If you

know that, you know when to say yes

and you know

and you know when to say no. He

often said no to the Hollywood

lifestyle concentrating on a strong

marriage to Joanne Woodward. After

the death of his son se created a

food brand for worthy charities.

Sons are put on this earth to

trouble their fathers. He died

surrounded by family and close

friends after a determined battle

with cancer. You can leave this life

any time you want to. You hear that?

He was always his own man.

He was always his own man.. Kill me,

anything. And what a man that was. Big loss. anything. And what a man that was.

An $840 billion rescue deal for debt-ridden banks in the US could be reached as early as tomorrow. The Senate's top Democrat says there's been significant progress overnight and there are about 15 issues legislators need to resolve. Financial experts here say the buy-out is America's only option. The fact of the matter is if Wall Street goes down it'll take the American economy with it and then everyone suffers a lot more pain. US President George W. Bush used his weekly radio address to urge Americans to get behind the government scheme. A man has died after being gunned down in Geelong overnight. The 36-year-old was flown to Melbourne's Alfred Hospital but died this morning. He's thought to have been shot in the head with a rifle. Police believe the incident was the result of an ongoing dispute between two men at Whittington. The alleged shooter fled the scene but was arrested at a neighbouring property. He remains in custody. Victoria police have praised the behaviour of AFL fans

following last night's Grand Final celebrations. More than 100,000 people packed the MCG but there were only four arrests for drunkenness and violence. From our point of view it's been a great success. There's only been a couple of negatives, which is disappointing.

We'll bring you more on the post-match celebrations in sport.

A man's has been charged overnight after a fire and explosion at an apartment block in Sydney's eastern suburbs. The 54-year-old was charged with possessing explosive devices with the intent to destroy. Chemicals were found inside the Woollahra unit after the fire broke out yesterday morning. Dozens of residents were forced to flee as the building filled with smoke. It was frightening, and it was frightening when the poor guy was out the window screaming that there was a fire and he couldn't get down. Overnight, residents were allowed to return home. The accused man will face court later today. At least 17 people have been killed in a car bombing in the Syrian capital of Damascus.

The car, packed with 200kg of explosives blew up near a security checkpoint on a road to the airport. Witnesses say the death toll could have been worse if the blast happened when schools were open. It's the deadliest attack in the country in more than a decade. No-one has claimed responsibly. A Chinese astronaut has completed his country's first ever space walk. Mission commander, Zhai Zhigang, floated for about 20 minutes before returning to the orbital module. China is planning to build a space station in the next few years. The 3-man crew will be back on Earth tomorrow.

And the first pictures of Nicole Kidman's daughter, Sunday Rose, have surfaced. The actress was snapped leaving London's famous Abbey Road Studios cradling the 3-month-old. Nicole and husband Keith Urban have refused multimillion-dollar magazine offers for photos of Sunday Rose. This week, the 41-year-old actress attributed her miracle pregnancy to a waterho
