Hello and thanks for joining us. We reckon that forklift driver after that. probably had to drown his sorrows of Shocking No such problems for the connections or the people who backed Shocking and the trifecta. Winners are grinners today. But the story of Corey Brown - disappointment behind him the jockey who put is a wonderful yarn. and a trainer who believed in him

Josh and Brett Morris will become the first twins to play for the Kangaroos since Kevin and Kerrod Walters in 1991, in this weekend's Four Nations clash with France. The twins will even line-up on the same side of the field - at left centre and wing. A win will ensure the Kangaroos qualify for the Four Nations final. Panther Michael Jennings and Storm half Cooper Cronk

are also tipped to start. The Wallabies kick off their grand slam tour later this morning in a match against English Premiership side Gloucester. Robbie Deans has handed six players their international debuts with Kurtley Beale to start at fullback. It's Deans's last chance to look at players before finalising his squad for this weekend's Test against England at Twickenham. Dean Mumm will captain the side. While most of us were soaking up Cup day the West Coast Eagles on the training track. Brisbane recruit Brad Dalziel blitzed his team-mates in a series of 1km time trials

with Beau Waters also a star performer.

That is one way to spend Cup day.

Not the favourite way. Fifi's taking a break from the Spring Carnival today. She's down by the Yarra in Melbourne.

Good morning, Mel. I think a lot of

Melburnians are taking a break. I

got to say, very quiet in Melbourne.

taxis. A lovely day though. Quite

Straight ahead, though, Rihanna breaks her silence about the Chris Brown assault. Her warning to all women is coming up on Sunrise. The E-File on Sunrise with the all-original Nelson Aspen brought to you by 'New Idea', for all the latest celebrity news and more. Rihanna has finally broken her silence on the Chris Brown incident. The singer has spoken for the first time about the February assault that left her battered and Brown charged with assault. To find out just what she had to say, let's go to Nelson Aspen in Hollywood. Nelson, how did she describe that dramatic time in her life?

Well, let's point out that she is

finally breaking her silence because

her new album is coming out at the

end of the month. She did a

pre-taped interview and then an

interview with 'Glamour' magazine.

She described the whole experience

as humiliating but emerged wiser and

aware. She said I felt like I went

to asleep as Rihanna and woke up as

Britney Spears. She is referring to

the media coverage. There are 100

people in my house and media in my

cul-de-sac. What do you mean I can't

go home. She says it is one of those

things we women will hide because it's embarrassing.

She is making definitely a good

thing out of a very bad event. Good

on her in saying what she said. Kate Winslet has won a lawsuit against a British paper. What was she suing over?

She has always been very forth right

about her body image and not

undergoing the knife and she was

upset when a magazine digitally

slimmed her down. She has always

been very outspoken about being

real. She took on Britain's Daily

Mail with a libel suit with claims

that she made about her exercise

regimen. Remember she got so lean

last year around Oscar time she

camed - claimed that she was pofr

exercising. She sued them and won $

exercising. She sued them and won

$40,000 and more importantly to

Kate, an apology. They will pay Kate, an apology. They will pay the $ Kate, an apology. They will pay the

$40,000 fine and run an apology in

print. She has been vindicated.

Coming up on Sunrise, Cup party. Shocking's connections celebrate their victory in the big race. Jockey Corey Brown joins us live. Also, news sport, and weather together. And later, why we all need to talk about organ donation. This Sunrise, on Seven. This is Emmet, who looks like he's having some trouble waking up. Gianna and Jai from Noosa say

he plays fetch with them when he's more alert. Emmet's receiving a Petstock gift voucher. And head to our website to see how you can spend it.

Plus check out more great offers from Catalogue Central. Shortly on the show - the forklift driver who made a mistake and caused absolute mayhem in a vodka warehouse. We'll tell you how this ended up.

suggestion. We were a bit nervous

going into it. We were rock solid. I

shouldn't confess all secrets. News

time now with Nat. After 10 weeks, engineers have finally managed to stop oil and gas leaking from a well off the West Australian coast. Mud and salty water was flooded into the pipe, more than 2km underground, creating a temporary plug. We do not underestimate the significant increase

technical complexity and logistical challenges and hazards in the wake of damage caused by the fire. The company will wait about two days for the platform to cool down before experts can install permanent plugs. It's been a big night of celebrations for the connections of Melbourne Cup winner Shocking. Yesterday's result was a dream come true for trainer Mark Kavanagh and jockey Corey Brown. That's all I keep saying really, is I've won the Melbourne Cup finally. So close last year and a second and a third before that, but I've finally got my own. After a big party comes a big mess. Clean-up crews arrived at Flemington last night to pick up tonnes of rubbish left behind. Some punters were also a little worse for wear this morning after heading out to Melbourne's nightclub district. Sydney identity Fadi Ibrahim has walked free from jail on a million dollars surety. The 23-year-old was shot five times in his Lamborghini in June and is accused of conspiring to murder the man he thought was responsible. Ibrahim cried tears of relief when he was granted bail on strict conditions. He'll have to report to police daily and has an 8:30pm to 6:00am curfew. Fiji has been warned it faces further isolation after the regime expelled envoys from Australia and New Zealand. Fiji's leader Frank Bainimarama has accused the two countries of interfering in Fiji's affairs. The Australian Government is expected to announce a stern response later this morning. A proportionate response in these circumstances is often required to reflect the opprobrium not just of Australia and New Zealand, but I think for the opprobrium of the international community, for the way in which Fiji is conducting itself. The Foreign Minister hasn't said

whether Fiji's representatives will be expelled from here. In finance news: Time for sport, here's Beretts. Corey Brown admits he thought his Melbourne Cup dream was over when Shocking was trapped three wide yesterday. It's now written into Cup folklore that Shocking managed

to outstay his rivals, while celebrating with the winning connections last night. He thought he may have blown his chance last year when he went down by a nose on Bauer.

When you get beat by such a small

margin, it is definitely in your

mind that you go the rest of your

career without a Melbourne Cup. Trainer Mark Kavanagh may now run the horse at Dubai's rich World Cup meeting in March. Aussie professional Rod Pampling believes Tiger Woods's appearance at next week's Australian Masters could revive tournament golf in this country. Woods is one of a host of stars playing in the Shanghai Open this week and says he's committed to helping raise the profile of golf globally. To see the excitement level here of all the Chinese fans and the media and the players all throughout Asia and the world to come here and support this event, it's great to be a part of. Woods believes the inclusion of golf at the Olympics will help grow the game worldwide. The Wallabies play the first match of their grand slam tour of the UK later this morning against English Premiership side Gloucester. Dean Mumm will captain a side that featuring six debutantes. including Waratahs star Kurtley Beale. The Wallabies take on England at Twickenham this weekend. The World Anti-Doping Agency has weighed into the Andre Agassi drug saga asking tennis ruling bodies to investigate the incident. Agassi admits to testing positive to crystal meth in his autobiography but says he was able to avoid a ban by telling the ATP his drink was spiked.

That's all I keep saying, I finally

third the year before but I finally got my own. Jockey Corey Brown and the connections of Shocking, celebrating their Cup win. They partied well into the night. And Corey will be our guest after 7:00 on Sunrise. A new movie being shot in Queensland is causing a stir well before its release. The concept has been toyed with in other films before. It's tourists stranded on the Great Barrier Reef

while the dangers of the deep blue are circling.

In a wide, blue, ocean, it found them.

And it wasn't letting them go. It is the voice. The film, 'The Reef' has got some local tourist operators worried. One of them joins us now. Col McKenzie is from the Association of Marine Park Operators. Good morning. Why do you think the storyline for this film is a problem?

It's the fact that they are trying

to promote it being based on a true

story when in fact it is fiction.

The Great Barrier Reef doesn't have

great white sharks. That is our

concern. There is a lot of thought

process out there that Australia is

a dangerous destination and it

reinforces it and it gives them the

opportunity to promote Australia as

a dangerous destination. Instead

come to the Caribbean or South-East

Asia. That is our principal concern. The film-makers stand by their claim that the story is based on a true one.

Have they told you what the story is

and can you disprove it? They said

it happened off Townsville. Someone

had a boat sink and said "

had a boat sink and said "I think a

shark was following me.

shark was following me." That is

their story. There are no great

whites and there are no great whites

off the Great Barrier Reef. Would it

make a difference if they called it

a tiger shark or a bull shark? Is

that the issue? Or that peel know it

is a movie and not too worried? They

know it is a movie. Great whites are

feared by most people throughout the

world because they are aggressive

and they do have strange behaviour

patterns, particularly leading on

from things like the Jaws movie

where they had this behaviour

pattern through those movies. This

is tagging to those things. The

under water footage was shot

under water footage was shot in South Australia. They go up as far

as Hervey Bay but we never had

as Hervey Bay but we never had that response from sharks on

response from sharks on the Great Barrier Reef. The tiger sharks are

very timid. I have seen tiger sharks

many times the water but never

concerned. I consider myself very

happy. With tourism the way it is at

the moment, while everyone is

cheering with the Australian dollar

going up but for tourists here it is

quite expensive. Are you feeling the

effects of that at the moment?

Absolutely. Unemployment in Cairns

is worse in the nation at 14%

is worse in the nation at 14%.

Cairns region is the heaviest

tourism economy. When tourism is

down, our economy bleeds and we need

to get the right message out there.

If they promoted it as a fictional

work, I would support it. I think it

is fantastic that they shot it in

Australia. It is Australian money.

Americans looking - Americans in

isolation, let's face it - they

voted for George Bush. You made two

points there. Thank you for talking

to us. Well done. Good comment. You can judge for yourself. The film-makers are putting shots from the movie on the internet. You can go to our website for details.

Or you can get that voiceover bloke say "

say "Nearly true story. say "Nearly true story." Coming up, engineers finally plug the leak from an oil rig in the Timor Sea. And new pictures of what Maddie McCann might look like now. Straight ahead, though, why we all need to discuss organ and tissue donation. Sunrise is back in a moment. This is Ava - she parks her car at the station, catches the train. This is Mark - he leaves his car at home and cycles to the city. VOICEOVER: At Youi, we insure you for how you use your car. It's smarter

Shocking won Australia's biggest

horserace. Look at the Melbourne

Age. Shocking beat the odds to

become a Cup winner. What's got people talking, Nat? A new campaign aims to get people talking about organ donation. We're being urged to discover the facts about donating, decide to donate, then discuss the decision with our family. Kochie, that final point is perhaps the most important. Because even if you agree to donation, it can't take place unless your next-of-kin agrees.

At the last moment the next of kin

can say no. That is why it is so

important to talk to your family.

This is a campaign that we started

on Sunrise a few years ago. We had

the worst transplant level. The

highest register of donors but the

lowest transplant rates. Because

people don't have the facts and

don't talk to their families about

it. The new authority and I am on

the advisory board. It is called

donatelife.gov.au. It has all the

information. Go there and read what

donation is all about and then

decide and then talk about it with

your family. This Sunday sit down

and say. 90% of people support but

the family consent rate is only 66% the family consent rate is only 66%.

So the families are going against

their wishes? Yes. Or they don't

know. You are not thinking because

you are not grieving. We put over

100 counsellors in hospitals that

have just been employed to help with

the discussion between doctors and

the donor family. That will help

from the hospital point of view. But

it is also important to get the

facts about it. I was at a lunch

some ladies said "

facts about it. I was at a lunch and some ladies said "We would never

become organ donors because you

never get the body back. You just

have a memorial service for the burial. have a memorial service for the

burial." That is an absolute myth.

Others say the body is mutilated but

it is keyhole surgery. Some schools are going bilingual. Children in their first years of primary at selected spots in New South Wales will have to learn, and use, an Asian language. High school students have been able to learn another language but this plan will start in kindergarten. And it will be a lot more intensive. Instead of a couple of lessons each week, the kids will spend at least 1.5 hours each day speaking Mandarin, Korean, Japanese or Indonesian, in all classes, except maths and English. Is this a good plan?

I thought it can't be right because

it sounds like a lot more than other

subjects. It seems like a lot. The

concept is fantastic, especially

concept is fantastic, especially at

that age and particularly one that

They are seeing how it works. I

suppose they want feedback. Here at Sunrise we love a good wedding. We're all talking about the ceremony on 'Packed to the Rafters' last night.

After a few last-minute jitters, Ben and Melissa finally said their I dos. Everyone wants their wedding day to be perfect but is it really possible to have all these special extras We'll get some first-hand advice later this Sunrise.

The forklift driver who brought the house down at a vodka factory as this Wednesday edition of Sunrise continues. We'll tell you how that all ended up soon on Sunrise. But right now, it's news time with Nat. It's been a big night of celebrations for the connections of Melbourne Cup winner Shocking. The 4-year-old stayer stole the show in the last 300m. The first victory for jockey Corey Brown and trainer Mark Kavanagh. It was a win 12 months in the making and a lifetime in the waiting. You have got no idea how that tastes out of gold, whoo, hoo! Last night, trainer Mark Kavanagh finally had his hands on racing's holy grail. It really is the race that stops the nation and, gee, it hasn't sunk in that I've won it. It's also a dream come true for jockey Corey Brown after coming a heartbreaking second in the Melbourne Cup last year. That's all I keep saying really is, I've won the Melbourne Cup finally. So close last year and a second and a third before that, but I've finally got my own.

And what a race it was. RACE CALLER: 300 metres to go, It's Shocking after Crime Scene who's hit the lead. I'ts Crime Scene and Shocking racing clear at the 200

it again next year. After 10 weeks, engineers have finally managed to stop oil and gas leaking from a well off the West Australian coast. But it could be at least another day before engineers are able to board the smouldering platform and install a permanent plug. ..finally stopped burning yesterday afternoon. Starved of fuel when the oil and gas leak was finally plugged after ten weeks. One word is relieved, because it's been pretty challenging,

more than 2km underground, creating a temporary plug. We do not underestimate the significant increase, technical complexity, logistical challenges and hazards in the wake of damage caused by the fire. Now the company will wait about two days for the platform to cool down. Reports into its condition and what the company says will be Australia's biggest environmental monitoring program. will be made for the Federal Government.

Then three experts will board the rig, REPORTER: How was the leak caused? We can't say yet. Why not? You must have some idea how it was caused. We have an idea, but we will not speculate on the cause of the leak because it is subject to a full and proper investigation by the proper processes.

The company hopes to know within a week whether the rig can be restored to supply oil again.

Do you think your company's reputation can be restored? I sincerely hope so. The Federal Government will respond this morning to Fiji's move to expel envoys from Australia and New Zealand. Fiji has accused the two countries of interfering in its internal affairs. Joining me is United Nations analyst Dr Keith Suter. Good morning, Dr Suter. What has Australia done wrong?

Nothing. We are simply carrying out

our obligations of a policy of

sanctions. This is a Fijian

Government and they are subject to

sanctions. They are annoyed that we are care

are carrying out obligations. What

will happen from here? Clearly our

own diplomatic links will be cut off

from Fiji. Sanks against Fiji

including cutting off some of the

foreign aid. Fiji receives more

foreign aid than any other country

in the world. So a lot of Aussies

would be booked for holidays and a

lot of Aussies there now. What

you suggest?

they keep away from demonstrations

they will have a good holiday in

Fiji. Thank you for your time this morning. Economists are warning interest rates will rise by at least another 1% in the first half of next year. The big four banks have already passed on yesterday's 0.25% increase, adding an extra $45 a month to repayments on a $300,000 loan. We would expect whilst the market is expecting they'll go as high as another 2% we would expect it'll only be around 1% in total. The next rate rise is tipped for December. British police have released video images of what missing girl Madeleine McCann might look like now, more than two years after her disappearance. The pictures show her as a 6-year-old and what she might look like if she's been living in a hot climate. Police hope the images will put pressure on whoever allegedly abducted the little girl. This video will be there prompting them, telling them that we're reaching out to the person close to them who knows what happened. that we're prompting their conscience. The video has been recorded in seven languages. In finance news: Time for sport, here's Beretts. Melbourne Cup winner Shocking will now be invited to take on the world's best at the Dubai World Cup meeting in March. Trainer Mark Kavanagh wasn't thinking that far ahead last night,

instead preferring to soak up one of the great Cup performances It is pretty surreal... ..I've just won the Melbourne Cup today. It was Kavanagh and jockey Corey Brown's first win in the great race. Josh and Brett Morris will become the first twins to play for the Kangaroos since Kevin and Kerrod Walters back in 1991, in this weekend's Four Nations clash with France The twins will even line up on the same side of the field at left centre and wing. A win will ensure the Kangaroos qualify for the Four Nations final.

Didn't get to play together this year through the Origin series but it's one of our goals to play together in rep sides like this. Panther Michael Jennings and Storm half Cooper Cronk are also tipped to start. The Wallabies kick off their grand slam tour later this hour in a match against English Premiership side Gloucester.

Robbie Deans has handed six players their international debuts including Waratahs star Kurtley Beale. It's Deans' last chance to look at players before finalising his squad for this weekend's Test against England at Twickenham. Dean Mumm will captain the side. Gold Coast United coach Miron Bleiberg has hosed down talk of a rift between players and billionaire owner Clive Palmer. Bleiberg defended Palmer's hands-on approach, saying its had no affect on his struggling team. It comes as the club was forced to abandon its plan to cap crowd numbers after attracting heavy criticism. It's very easy when the team is losing

to pick up and just to start baseless rift between coaches, rift between players. All stands will be open against premiership pacesetters Sydney on Saturday. While most of us were soaking up Cup day, the West Coast Eagles were sweating it out on the training track. Brisbane recruit, Brad Dalziel blitzed his team-mates in a series of 1km time trials with Beau Waters also a star performer. Soon on Sunrise, Cup-winning jockey Corey Brown joins us.

Fifi is recovering for Oaks Day down

by the Yarra River in comfortable

shoes too. I am putting myself to

good use. I got the girls lined up

taking them through some paces.

Start sculling, start sculling.

Scull, scull. It doesn't feel right

I will have more weather details for

you. I better get back to telling

these girls what to do. Back to you, Mel. There's always a great story behind the Melbourne Cup winner. Shocking surprised punters and left his trainer speechless after storming home to take out the crown. We're joined now by Corey Brown who rode Shocking to victory. Welcome.

What an amazing day you had

yesterday. Has it settled in and

sunk in? No, not yet. I don't think

so until I get home to Sydney and it

is all over. Where is the Cup? Did

you sleep beside it, or did you

slee? No, I woke up early this

morning and it is pretty hard to

take in at this stage. The Melbourne

Cup is the be all to end all. How

important is that to you as opposed

to any other race you have won in

the world? Very important. As you

know, it is the race that stops the

nation. It is every jockey's dream

to win it. Coming so close last year

and to finally win it, it is a big

relief. Even Mark Kavanagh said he

didn't think he would win. He didn't

draw the barrier and he didn't have

the right run to win. To overcome

three wide, he overcame at the half

mile. He travelled in the straight

behind another runner which is good

with the strong headwind. From the

300 he was going to win. It was

great. Can you put that in layman's

terms. We are watching and we are

sitting there saying "

sitting there saying "He can't win that one.

that one." Shocking came from

nowhere. He travelled well in the

race. He felt strong. He definitely

got the two mile. What's next? Where

do you go from here? Do you get a

bit of time off and gloat for

bit of time off and gloat for a while or straight back to work?

Straight back to work. Very busy

times. Obviously the Spring

Carnival, another two days to go,

Oaks Day and Emirates day and then

back to Sydney to start all over

again. What about Shocking, does he

get ab extra bit of mow lasses in

his hay? I am sure he would. I just

heard he was invited to Dubai but it

is all up to Mark Kavanagh. Will you

ride him? It will be hard to get me

off him. How proud are your family.

You were doing your speech and the

phone conked out but the family must

be so proud of you. Yes, I got three

daughters at home. For years they

wanted to take the Melbourne Cup to

show-and-tell and now they get to do

it. Do you get a special bond with a

horse, is it something enduring, you

and Shocking? You do find love. They

are like humans. They got different

personalities and different things

when you are riding them. No, you do

fall in love with them. I am sure I

will fall in love with Shocking. It

was an amazing race and you enjoy

sleep-in that you haven't had for a

very long time. Thanks. The safest bet yesterday was that the Reserve Bank would lift official interest rates. They went up by a 0.25% to 3.5%. For the average mortgage of $200,000, that's a $30 increase to your monthly repayments. If you've borrowed $300,000, then the increase will be $45 a month. And a $400,000 loan will see your monthly repayments go up $60.

That is on top of the extra that

kicked in last month as well. Why did the Reserve feel the need to push up rates? Joining us now is Michael Pascoe from Fairfax Media's Business Day. Good morning to you.

A lot are saying why another one

after the last one? Because our

economy has been going so well. They

want to bring it back to normal. It

is still a stim la tri level. They

want it to be back in the position

to keep an eye on the economy. The Chamber of Commerce and Industry

and the Retailers Association have warned the Reserve Bank on rates.

They are warning do too many more we

will go backwards. Do you reckon

they are right? Too many, yes. That

is why they are stressing a gradual

lessening of the stimulus, a gradual

lessening. They are taking it

lessening. They are taking it one

month at a time. There is no

guarantee that they will put up

rates next month. If the economy

continues to grow. They don't want

to frighten the horses. They want to

keep the economy growing, not stall

it. The job the Reserve Bank has

done over the past several years,

you have to say give them the

benefit of the doubt that they know

what they are doing. Will there be

another one in the lead-up to

Christmas? The general consensus is

that they would like to get the cash

rate back to 4%

rate back to 4%. That is another

rise. If retail sales remain

healthy, you could expect another

healthy, you could expect another 25 points next month. No guarantee.

Play it as it comes. Stay tuned.

Michael, good to catch up. Singer Rihanna has finally broken her silence about that assault back in February. She's described how dramatically the attack by Chris Brown changed her life. Nelson Aspen is in Hollywood with all the details on what she had to say. Nelson, it's still a very sensitive topic for Rihanna, isn't it?

It is but she had to address it

sooner or later. Now that Chris

Brown is playing out his sentence

and she has a new album coming out

she gave interviews. She described

as humiliating but wiser and more aware.

She definitely had some adjustments

to make. She went on to say.

Let's hope she continues to do so.

Absolutely. Good on her. She is a

young woman and vi influential. Good

on her for doing that. Britney

any liquids through but a special

exception was made for Britney. I

would be more worried about those

hair extensions. She got through and

landed in Sydney at 6:00 in the

morning. She said it was the longest

flight she ever had. Welcome to

Australia, Britney. She was there

with her 144 entourage and she will

open you her tour in Perth, home

open you her tour in Perth, home of Natalie Barr. She has been whisked

off behind closed doors and barriers

so no one could see her. Because it

was such a long flight. Australians

think it is nothing. Think of it as

a spa day. Americans - Americans are

funny. "

wonder if it is our up

wonder if it is our upbringing that

it is far to go anywhere. Remember

it goes both ways. Come and see me

sometime. We will be there. This

afternoon. Thanks, Nelson. Now to a story of absolute mayhem. Watch what happens when a careless forklift driver loses control of his vehicle, in a Russian vodka warehouse. His foot seems to slip on the accelerator. The forklift crashes into a crate of bottles. And that sets off the dominoes. On serious note, the driver escaped with just some minor injuries to one of his legs. But the accident apparently cost the owners of the warehouse around $109,000.

And the smell of all that vodka on

the floor. All over him. Imagine

getting home and your missus says " getting home and your missus says

"You been drinking?

"You been drinking?" Anyway, he is

OK. There you go. The cleaning crew.

Just how close are police? Right now though, it's over to Nat for the news. Corey Brown admits he thought his Melbourne Cup dream was over when Shocking was trapped three wide yesterday. It's now written into Cup folklore that the 4-year-old managed to outstay his rivals. Corey is still in disbelief this morning.

It's very special, as you know. It's the race that stops the nation. As an Australian jockey, it's every jockey and apprentice's dream to win it. So coming so close last year and finally getting it this year,

it's a big relief. Trainer Mark Kavanagh may now run the horse at Dubai's rich World Cup meeting in March. Australia could cut foreign aid to Fiji, after the Pacific nation expelled our high commissioner. Fiji's leader Frank Bainimarama has accused Australia and New Zealand of interfering Analysts say tourists should still be safe. The problem is the Fijian Government, the dictator, they've got there, but the ordinary Australian, provided they keep away from political demonstrations, will go as always for a good holiday in Fiji. The Australian Government will announce its response to Fiji later today. Engineers have successfully plugged a leaking oil well off the West Australian coast. Oil and gas stopped spilling from the West Atlas rig yesterday which caused a massive inferno to burn out. Engineers hope to be able to board the platform tomorrow when it cools down. There's another step which is actually plugging the wells and therefore we need the engineers to get onboard and install plugs and that will permanently secure the well. The government has promised a full and independent inquiry into the leak. A couple and their baby have had a lucky escape after a P-plate driver slammed his car into their house. The car ploughed through the front fence and then into the carport at the house in Engadine last night. The 17-year-old driver and a friend in the front passenger seat weren't injured. The family inside the house also weren't hurt. In finance news: Time for sport, here's Beretts. Aussie professional Rod Pampling believes Tiger Woods' appearance at next week's Australian Masters

But in a just a moment, the online campaign to find Madeleine McCann. Is she still alive after all this time? That's next. Get two pairs of designer glasses from $199 Meet Sam. He's a born athlete.

He just had a new bub and things are

tough at home. Australian police have joined their British counterparts

in a worldwide push to help find Madeleine McCann. UK investigators have launched a new online video which shows what Maddie might look like now. The 'Minute for Madeleine' clip is broadcast in many languages,

urging anyone with information about her disappearance to come forward.

Madeleine disappeared on May 3, 2007

while on holiday with her family in

Portugal. Madeleine is now six years

old. This is how she may look like

today. We know there is someone out

there involved in her disappearance.

They may be keeping the secret out

of fear, misplaced loyalty or out of

love. If you know someone involved

and are keeping the secret, remember

it is never too late to do the

it is never too late to do the right

thing. We urge anyone who knows

anything about the whereabouts of

Madeleine, or information about her

disappearance, to do the right thing

now and give that information to the local police.

You can only hope that investigators

think that little Maddie is still

alive. Joining us is our UK correspondent, Al Jazeera's Hamish MacDonald. Good morning to you. Who is involved in this latest initiative to find Maddie?

This latest video that we saw is put

out by the UK centre for child

protection. It is a specific

campaign. In the past we heard from

police or investigators that anyone

who knows about her disappearance to

come forward. This is different. It

targets anybody who knows or worked

alongside anyone who was responsible

for her disappearance. They believe

there are other people who know what

happened to Madeleine, not just the

person directly responsible. The

theory is that relationships change

over time and the theory is that the

person was protecting this person

out of fear, love or loyalty. Given

that that relationship may have

changed that they are willing to

come forward. The video had been

review - viewed over 100,000 times.

They are keeping it in people's

minds. After the American incident

with Jaycee Duguard, so many years

after her kidnapping, there's every

possibility? Indeed Kate and Gerry

McCann were talking about that very

case this afternoon. They said that

gave them hope. The photos being

released depict what Madeleine would

look like now. She would be six. It

is interesting to hear the McCanns

talk about these specific images

saying it is strange - it is not how

they remember their little girl.

This photo looks different from the

person that they had as part of

their family. It is probably

difficult for them to see these

images. It is very important that

this case stays the public eye.

There is no longer an investigation

in the UK or Portugal so it is

campaigns like this their only hope

to keep this campaign in the public eye. The Australian Federal Police are supporting this move.

Is there any suggestion Maddie could be in Australia?

There was a suggestion, Mel, that

there was an Australian link. These

were the investigators hired by the

pic cans themselves. They were

retired detectives and are looking

at any lead. At one point a photo

image was released, some information

that came forward from Australian

citizens that viewed that campaign

or that particular appeal from the

McCann family. But that's come to

nothing. So there is no suggestion

really at this stage that

really at this stage that the Australian Federal Police are acting

or supporting that there is

knowledge that there is an

Australian link. The AFP probably

has no

has no choice but to go along with

the British police with this

campaign. It is going forward and

people right around the world

interested in this. The campaign has

been launched not just English but

Portuguese, Italian, Arabic. That

shows how little they know what

happened to Madeleine. Let's hope it

works. Thanks for the update. On the way, why we all need to talk about organ and tissue donation. It's an issue we've been following for some time on Sunrise.

There's a new campaign launched behind it. Next up, though, how a day at the races really paid off for James Tobin. His trackside report is after the break. You do wanna be very smart Everyone's trying to save money Pack of two ratchet tie-down 45-litre waterless garden mulch, only $8.98. Everybody loves good value.

A gorgeous day in Melbourne. The

morning after the Melbourne Cup.

They say it is a morning shower.

There is a bit of a big cloud there.

It doesn't look like much

precipitation. You don't know. That

is the from the BoM. The Bureau of

Meteorology. Why don't we get you to

do the weather. " do the weather. "Big cloud!

do the weather. "Big cloud!" Blue and shiny. It's the biggest day in the racing calendar. Cup Day in Melbourne always promises thrilling finishes and colourful characters. Our very own James Tobin headed out to Flemington yesterday for a day at the races.

They call it the race that stops the

nation. It is not just about horses.

From the glamorous to the outrageous

to the bizarre. This is Melbourne

Cup. Let's try that again. It is not

all about the horses. It is about

the glamour and style. Melbourne

Cup. Can I hang with you guys today?

Of course you can. What have you

brought for your picnic? Chips. Wine

and champagne is the main ib greed

yent of the day. You are going to

get into trouble today, won't you?

You think so. I would with you. I

got three rules. Your belt matches

your shoes. I don't know if they

match. Your socks match your pants.

And the third one, very important,

very important, always push the

boundaries. It's spring in Melbourne

and I'm wearing a jumper. But let's remember, there are the horses. Go Black Beauty. And the odd punt.

Thank you. There's your ticket. Good luck. But it's not the races without a little glitz and a lot of glamour.

Can you tell me about your dad and

Kochie? My dad has lined the toilet
