It's just incredible, kicks off Monday. The week-long event In finance news: here's Simon Reeve. And now with sport, You got a Pixie haircut this morning? I like the sleek kind of Pixie thing, it is very nice. It doesn't feel like spring to me. It certainly doesn't for Collingwood, they got whacked last night by Geelong. What a shame! What a shame!. Geelong have stunned premiership favourites Collingwood in an extraordinary warm-up to the finals with a record 96-point win. The Cats took total control during the second term, kicking 10 goals to the Pies' 1 before going on to steamroll the defending premiers 149-53. We knew if we could keep our pressure on. That's what we did in the first, we didn't take our chances but if we kept doing that, we could come through. Geelong meet arch-rivals Hawthorn next Friday night while Collingwood take on the resurgent West Coast but Mick Malthouse may be without key defender Chris Tarrant who limped off the field with a leg injury. In front of a sell-out home crowd the Knights have secured the final spot in the NRL's top eight with a memorable 40-24 point win over the Rabbitohs. Newcastle had the Bunnies on the back foot from the kick off, running in three quick tries before going to the break leading by 24 points. When Akila Uate crossed for his hat-trick it looked over but Souths finally found some spirit, getting within 10 points with time still on their side.

Uate put the result beyond doubt though with a minute on the clock with this 90-metre dash. COMMENTATOR: Four tries... equals the Newcastle record. And Wayne Bennett is confident his Dragons are ready for the finals after picking up a 32-12 win over the Panthers. A major upset at the US Open with third seed Maria Sharapova knocked out in three sets during the third round by Italy's Flavia Pennetta. Sharapova had been among the favourites for the title after winning the build-up tournament in Cincinnati last month. Australia are just five wickets away from securing victory in a low-scoring first Test against Sri Lanka. On a dodgy track in Galle, the home side appears destined for defeat, chasing an improbable 379 for the win. At stumps on day three Sri Lanka was 5/120. Ryan Harris has three wickets as the Aussies chase a rare Test victory. Sally Pearson is the hot favourite to break Australia's gold medal duck when she contests the finals of the 100 metre hurdles at the World Athletics Championships tonight. Pearson blitzed her heat, running her fastest time this year. And long jumper Mitchell Watt had to settle for silver overnight, hampered by a calf injury. Still a great result though. The Socceroos have salvaged 2-1 win against Thailand at Suncorp Stadium thanks to a late goal from substitute Alex Brosque. They had trailed 1-0 before Josh Kennedy equalised in a pretty scratchy performance, giving Australia a much-needed wake-up call. That was probably one of the worst performances we've had in a long, long time. And you know...there are no excuses. We've got to pick our game up and we all know it. They take on Saudi Arabia in the desert heat on Wednesday. Flavia Panetta sounds like a icecream flavour to me. It's melony, rock melony. I can taste that already. Congratulations to Nathan lion, a wicket with his first ball ever in test cricket. How about that? Amazing. That's like winning a Logie Sam for doing your first cross as a journalist from the Wallabadah lamington festival or something. They don't need my help, the Australian cricket team just yet. No, that's right, Muralily. I could have done that. What is he talking about? Love that doosra. Love that doosra.. Time for weather now with James Tobin. James, good morning. Talking about Logies, 'Home and Away', Summer Bay, Palm Beach Summer Bay. It's always Summer Bay. It's Summer Bay. Sunny in Summer Bay. Away', Summer Bay, Palm Beach is This week it gets very even tins, a storm is aBeauing. And you can it actually just over there. It's around about - it's around about - storm is aBeauing. And you can see

So this week I actually went out and had a chat to some of the cast of home and some of the cast of home and away to find out all about it. I spoke toalof, I spoke to Georgie Parker. Oh yes, some revolutions from Dan YouTube. I will reveal all later in the show. It's a little bit Weekend Sunrise meets Summer Bay this morning as we have a look at the show. It's a little bit of

I got excited and nervous at the same time. I think I blue my show. I got excited and nervous all chances. I will show you that a little bit later. It is going to be a fun morning here from Summer Bay The last thing you tried to addition for was the remake of Mad Max, then they cancelled the film. I hope this isn't the same effect on one of Australia's longest running serials. Australia's longest running serials.. I can't guarantee that, 24 years, Refund Home, OK. Refund Home, I can't guarantee that, 24 years, Refund Home and away. Coming up - shock horror. Dieters now told potatoes could actually help you lose weight. And Labor's dilemma - Julia Gillard determined to stay on as Prime Minister.

MEN: (SING) # Look at me # Look at me, look at me... # VOICEOVER: For a tailored marketing solution from Yellow Pages, call 13 20 56 today and really get noticed. # Look at me, look at me... # are rallying around their leader as things go from bad to worse. This week's High Court scrapping of the Malaysia solution has left the Prime Minister under huge pressure To talk about what's next we're joined by Seven's political commentator Graham Richardson. Richo, what now for Julia Gillard and her government?

Of the various disasters that have encountered this government, this in the public perception must be one of the worse. I would say the worst. I think this is the low point for Gillard so far. I can't say that she won't get lower. I thought that High Court decision made a mockery of the government. They nailed all their colours to the mass of the Malaysia solution, no back door, no way out. Obviously they were supremely confident, they must have got some dreadful legal advice. Down they went, 6-1. Now there is no where to go. The refugee issue is one that resonates very strongly for all Australians. It resonates out of all proportion to the effect that this has on every day Australians. Why does the government play up to this? I think both sides of poll Dick have played up to. Abbott is even harder, that race to the bottom, someone should have said, we are going to process them onshore, it's cheaper, quicker. That's the fact of the matter, it's cheaper and quicker to process them onshore, our obligations point us in that direction. Absolutely. There is no doubt about where the international obligations are. Everyone is trying to avoid them and sneak around the side of them. It doesn't work. I think the Malaysia solution hand the crash of it has shown that. What advice do you have in Minister in the back wash of this particular fiasco? What advice do you have in the Prime

Look, I don't think it's - if you give her advice, she doesn't take it. She is it. She it. Sheahan runs her own race. She doesn't listen to her own cabinet, let alone someone like Wasn't this the criticism of Kevin Rudd. let alone someone like me.

This is Kevin Rudd in a skirt. I think when you get to exclude the advice of several cabinet ministers. They don't get talked to a lot at all. I think a lot of people in cabinet are feeling isolated. The point, I always talked about her being knocked off as leader. I don't believe any of it. You always get the odd basketballer who will whinge but I can't see it handballing. of the people who really matter but I can't see it handballing. None we are - Arbib or shorten Orrcon Ray or Farrell, none of those people are of the people who really matter when

talking revolution. If they are not talking revolution, the rev talking revolution, the revolution won't happen. If that's the case, then Julia Gillard will remain Prime Minister until the next ee selection and until the next ee selection until the next ee until the next until the until the oooh election, she has 2. until the oooh election, she has 2.5 years. I doubt that. She doesn't have 2 years. I think far more likely that Andrew Wilkie will get rid of the government around about June next year. He says if the poker machine legislation is not through by May, he will bring it through. I think it will go under. She has a year then. I think so. Is it possible for the Prime Minister to regain the public trust? Sno No, it is impossible, when you get this low, when you are doing this poorly. I don't think you can recover. She may be able to recover a few points. I doubt that now. She is so on the nose with the public, all you can see on the polls, is going down. I hope I am wrong but I don't think I am. They announce policy first and then hope like hell that the details will sort themselves out later and they never do. They never do So they begin to look incompetent. How much is the Prime Minister responsible for that, how much of that is a that is a whole of cabinet It develop situate the Prime Minister's policy. Does anyone that is a whole of cabinet issues.

remember East Timor, it didn't last 48 hours, there was almost no homework, a thought bubble that she announced. Then she clung on it it for months, not willing to admit it was stupid, not willing to admit wasn't going to happen. The same thing happens with the mineral tax. We still haven't seen the legislation, that has been going 15 months. Even when the Malaysia solution was announced, that took 11 weeks because they hadn't negotiated anything. You have to say it's incompetent. There are some good policy platforms in there. It is a great shame, especially for someone like me. Thank you for your time this morning.. To Italy now, where Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has allegedly been blackmailed by a prominent couple. Businessman Gianpaolo Tarantini and wife Angela Devenuto are accused of extorting hundreds of thousands of dollars from the country's leader. For more let's cross to Sunrise foreign editor Dr Keith Suter. Good morning, Keith. What's the latest? Well, the allegation - let me just say, the police were investigating this couple and suddenly found that they had received $ they had received $700,000 equivalent from Berlusconi. So they then went to Berlusconi and asked him why did you give this couple, that huge sum of money? He said I just felt charitable, the couple that are down on their luck, I just gave them the money. I am not being blackmailed, it's not because they are caught up in prostitution or anything like that. He is caught up on that. In the last few years, phone intercept or interpreter's comment has come to light where he has referred to his own country, we are using a four letter word which I can't repeat air. He is alienating a lot of ordinary Italians who had previously admired him for being a person who had done very well in life become extremely wealthy and really had now wrecked himself over this matter. Of course, at the same time, we have got Italy on the brink of a financial ci assist, having to get money from the European Central Bank. They are introducing all sorts of cut backs in government public works programs. The business community is saying, it's not going far enough. The unions are saying it's going too far. Meanwhile we are discussing the Prime Minister's zipper again. It seems like that is all we talk about, Keith. It really is a joke. Is this latest scandal, is this likely to bring him and his government down? What is it going to take for Italy to wake up? Don't forget, he is already under investigation or on three charges relating to underage sex, prostitution issues and corruption. So, he is already himself be on trial. He may actually figure in somebody's else's trial and So, he is already himself going to

you've got a lot of people who are now very concerned that at a time when Italy needs good strong, clear honest government, perhaps he out to step aside and allow a bunch of people to come in and take of the economy and keep the things ticking over smoothly. The worry is people to come in and take control

if Italy goes down, we talk about the pig, Portugal, Italy, Greece and Spain. The worry is that if they can't stop the situation in Greece, we will end up with Spain and Portugal also going down. So, at a time when we are worried about the American financial situation, the

European economy outside of German is also in trouble. This scandal is not helping matters. We can laugh but it really is quite serious. It is serious.

We think our government is bad. Thank you. Thank you.. A change of pace now and it's one food that has long been shunned from the diet books but it seems that's about to change. A group of scientists from the US now claims if you want to lose weight, you should fill up on potatoes.

Researchers from Scranton University are hailing the humble spud as a holy grail of health. They claim the veggie contains a whole host of essential vitamins and minerals, helps you feel full and can even lower your blood pressure. For more on this, we're joined in the studio by nutritionist Zoe Bingley-Pullin. Good morning to you.

Can eating potatoes really help us lose weight? The good thing about potato, is they call something called resistant starch. It will fill you up for a long time. It has the effect of to go stabilise your blood sugar levels. It's not that it can long time. It has the effect of help

necessarily lose weight but it can't put on weight which is what we all thought it would. That's nice to know. That's presumably though if you eat the potato in a pretty basic state. If you are filling it up with cream and butter and milk. It's common sense but the potato is what we are adding to it, we are

frying it, the Trans fats. The best way to actually eat the potato is to microwave it. But the interesting thing, it has to do with the skin. The skin itself, contains photo chemicals that help pressure. I love to mash it with a chemicals that help to lower blood bit of avocado, a little bit of olive oil. That way we are getting other nutrients in the diet as well as getting something that's healthy as well. You mash it German match with the skin on? The whole thing, put all, as much knew tree dent dense food that you can get into it We know that we have the particular form of starch that is very helpful to us and the skin contain, fight owe chemical, Very similar to blood pressure chemicals. Helpful vitamins Full of potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B. It's also good for immune point of view as well. Definitely not as bad as what we vitamin B. It's also good for an

thought it was all about If you eat a sack of spuds, you may not lose weight, you may not gain wait weight. Maybe not a whole sack of potatoes. Thank you, Zoe. Next - news, sport and weather together. You're watching Weekend Sunrise on the Seven Network.

Heavy-duty Exit Mould - the number one mould destroyer that works in just three minutes to leave tiles sparkling clean. This is mould. This is Exit Mould. Authorities will work to retrieve the wreckage of a light plane that crashed off a Sydney beach yesterday. Pilot Gary Malane made a frantic mayday call just moments before his plane went down at North Curl Curl. His passenger was rescued from the water but the 60-year-old couldn't be saved. Oh, a very likeable fellow. Not only was he a keen aviator, he took part in all the social functions that we have here at the club. Emergency crews and bystanders have been praised for their attempts to help with the rescue. Prime Minister Julia Gillard is standing strong despite mounting pressure on her leadership. Senior Labor ministers have publically pledged their support for the PM, but there are reports some in the party are losing faith following this week's High Court decision against the Malaysia solution. That High Court decision made a mockery of the Government. They nailed all their colours to the mast of the Malaysian solution, there was no back door, no way out. There are reports some would prefer to see Kevin Rudd in the top job. A bus driver has been taken to hospital with head wounds after being attacked in Sydney's east overnight. He was struck in the side of the head with a glass bottle after stopping to let a passenger onboard at Maroubra. The driver chased the man but lost sight of him a short distance later. He was taken to the Prince of Wales Hospital with a cut to his forehead. Police will view CCTV vision today as part of their investigation. Mining companies are offering their workers large pay rises and better hours to try to keep staff. A report by the Treasury Department has found mining firms in Queensland and WA are struggling with an increase in staff turnover. Many are finding it difficult to recruit skilled labour. Companies are reviewing salaries and rosters in an effort to keep workers happy. At least 14 people have been killed during anti-government protests in Syria. Security forces used live bullets on demonstrators who were renewing calls for the President to step down. The European Union has stepped up sanctions against Syria - banning its oil imports. Turkey has expelled Israel's ambassador and cut all military ties with its one-time ally after failing to get an apology over last year's raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla. The announcement came just before the publication of a UN report into the raid, which killed nine people. The report says Israel's force against the flotilla was excessive and unreasonable. 'X-Factor' judge and former Spice Girl Mel B has given birth to a baby girl. just before the star was admitted to hospital in LA where she gave birth to the healthy bub. Mel managed to log onto Twitter to share the good news within hours after the birth, saying her little girl was amazing. There is no name yet but it's sure to be unusual - her sisters are Phoenix Chi and Angel. YouTube, Lucky she made it in by the look of it You would be thrilled with those pictures. A chair maybe would have been handy at that point. Maybe the daughter's name is amazing. When she said our daughter is amazing. That's what she meant, a

capital A for mazing. Good that everything is OK It's important as a mum to get straight back on to Twitter after the birth, don't you? Because you may otherwise you may never use it again.

Premiership favourites Collingwood have been humiliated by Geelong in the final home and away round of the AFL with the Cats blasting to a record breaking 96-point win overnight. Collingwood coach Mick Malthouse says while it was a shocking night, it's by no means fatal for the defending premiers. Geelong had a magnificent 10 goals to one second quarter. The Dragons are back to winning ways into fourth spot on the NRL ladder after securing a much-needed 32-12 win over the Panthers. We've done all we can do now. We've picked our act up and we're ready. And a record four tries from Akila Uate has helped the Knights secure the final spot in the top eight, beating the Rabbitohs 40-24. Australia goes into day four of the first Test against Sri Lanka needing just five wickets for an emphatic victory. Ryan Harris took three wickets on a bowlers paradise in Galle as the Sri Lankans limped to 5/120 at stumps, chasing an unlikely 379 to win. Australia has scraped past Thailand with a 2-1 win to kick off their World Cup qualifying campaign in Brisbane thanks to a late goal from substitute Alex Brosque. While they got maximum points, there were few positives to take from the game. I don't think it was a performance worthy of a win but we'll take the win, of course we will. The Socceroos fly to Saudi Arabia for a tough match on Wednesday. Usain Bolt insists he's back on track after being disqualified from the 100 metres final at the World Athletics Championships.

She meet up with R&B, went on a TV show called'America's Nikki Minaj, she grabbed the rear end of Nikki, in exchange for the little grab, she gave Nikki some singing advice on how to hit the high notes. Sheahan is the direct opposite of this, she enjoyed going through the wardrobe closet, she enjoyed going through the closet and yeah, they talked about maybe working together. So total polar opposite, very talented, Susan Boyle's album I believe is is out in November. We will be looking for it. Boyle's album I believe is is coming

It's got of Nikki from a environmental perspective to be wearing Lady Gaga's hand me downs before. Have you ever heard of Nikki before.

She opened up for Britney Spears. She opened up for Britney. She has some good songs and Susan Boylealbum comes out on 4 November. She is distantly related to Cal as. - no, I made that up. She is distantly related to Maria Cal as. - no, I made that up.. You're watching Weekend Sunrise, on the Seven Network.

'The Little Book of Cliches' looks at the history and meanings of hundreds of these sayings. Editor Freya Hardy joins us now for more. Welcome, Freya. We all throw these cliches around but not many of us would know much about the stories behind them. No, absolutely not. Yeah. This is where the little book of cliche as comes in hand difficulty. Why don't we run through a few. Never look a gift horse in the mouth. Where did this come from? Well, it Bates back to the days when horses were given as gifts quite often. Horses' teeth begin to proceed tud as they age. To examine a horse that was given to you in the mouth was kind of seen as quite Road. It was cruciate neeuzing a gift Even ruder to examine your boyfriend's teeth when you are presented at marriage. One of my favourites is letting the cat out of the bag. Can you tell us about that one, Freya? Yeah, that's one of my favourites too actually. It dates back to a time when market vendors used to sell piglets in sacks. Some uncup lust vendors, dues to place a a in the sack instead of a pig. So if the cat escaped from the bag, the lust vendors, dues to place a a cat

vendor was revealeded as a bit after cheat. I have heard an alternative theory on that, that the cat refers to the cat of nine tails, the whip that used to be kept in a bloody sack onboard of ship, if there was a riot there would onboard of ship, if there was a riot there they would let the cat out of the bag.

This morning - race against time - can Julia Gillard survive until the next election? You're a good sort. Hey? You're a good sort. Offensive or complimentary? Are comments like this acceptable? Christian anger as schools are told to drop the terms BC and AD. Is this political correctness gone mad? Also today - haunted palace - Wills and Kate's royal ghost tours. Then, the diet that goes against everything we know - why potatoes are the ultimate weight-loss tool. It's Saturday 3 September 2011. Now back to Weekend Sunrise with Andrew and Sam. Just before we go to the news, I have to say a special happy birthday to my grandmother, nanny Flannery. We don't know how hold nanny Flannery is. But the actual Flannery is. But the actual date is lost to the mists of time. You haven't scently lost the birth certificate. A lady never tells her age. I love it. Happy birthday, nanny Flannery. She would love that. I hope you are watching. She will be of course. A friend to the show. A friend to the show. A friend to the show.. It's news time. Here's Jess. Labor heavyweights have reaffirmed their support for Julia Gillard as the PM fights to hold on to her leadership. Ms Gillard has come under increasing pressure after the High Court ruled against her Malaysia swap agreement this week. She's refusing to play into the rumours, standing firm on her position. I'm not going anywhere and I am doing this job because I am the best person to do it. There's speculation some MPs would prefer to see a return to Kevin Rudd. Air crash investigators will begin examining what caused a light plane to crash into water off North Curl Curl in Sydney. Pilot Gary Malane died in the crash, his passenger survived. Police, life savers and surfers have been praised for their efforts to help with the rescue. The guy popped out of the plane and we just walked out, swam out and pulled him in. Attempts to bring the wreckage to the surface are also expected to get under way today. An elderly driver has had a lucky escape after he was pulled from his car moments before it was crushed by a train on the New South Wales Central Coast. The man was disoriented when he drove on to the level crossing in Woy Woy, becoming stuck on the tracks. Passers-by noticed the car and managed to help him out just in time. If there'd been a person in the car it certainly would have looked like a very dicey situation for them. Rail commuters were put onto buses with major delays between Hornsby and Gosford. No-one was injured on the train. New South Wales police have charged a fifth security guard over the alleged bashing of a teenager at a Sydney nightclub last weekend. 19-year-old Nicholas Barsoum was allegedly kicked and punched repeatedly outside the popular Ivy Hotel early Sunday morning after he was ejected from the club. It's then believed he was taken to a basement area and assaulted again. A 33-year-old man was charged last night. He's been given conditional bail and is due to appear in court later this month. Two Australian soldiers killed in Afghanistan have been honoured during a memorial service in Darwin. Members of the 1st Combat Engineer Regiment gathered yesterday to pay tribute to their fallen colleagues Corporal Richard Atkinson and Sapper Jamie Larcombe. I think we honour the memory of our mates by continuing to talk about them, by sharing our memories and looking after those who are left behind. Members of the soldiers' families also attended the ceremony. United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will meet with leaders in Canberra today. The UN chief will hold talks with the Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd for what will be the first visit by a United Nations head in over a decade. before returning to Australia on Wednesday. Aussie actor Guy Pearce has walked the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival for the world premiere of his new miniseries, 'Mildred Pierce'. His co-star and Hollywood A-lister Kate Winslet wowed fans in a two-toned dress. Set in 1930s California, the miniseries is a hot favourite to take out an award. Wowed fans, that was really wowing fans, wasn't it? And wowing us. The crowd did go " The crowd did go "Wow" What about she rescued Richard Branson's mother. She can do that and look like that. Sven syingsal If you ever fly Virgin Atlantic, you better hope Kate Winslet is on that plane. Rescue all 500 passengers in that dress. Just watch her go. Wow. Wow. Just watch her go. Wow. Wow.! Can I do finance? My eyelashes have stuck together. Wow! My eyelashes have stuck together. Wow!. In finance news: I tell you what wow, I got through, that I was choking on toast just before I read that news bulletin. It was oh, a bit of a strug. Last time Kate Winslet was outback, a bit of a squeeze. Simon almost had to do that. Mark Beretta is doing that after Geelong have stunned premiership favourites Collingwood. with a record 96-point win. The Cats took total control during the second term, kicking 10 goals to the Pies' 1 before going on to steamroll the defending premiers 149-53. We knew if we could keep our pressure on, that's what we did in the first and obviously take out chances Geelong meet arch-rivals Hawthorn next Friday night in the first qualifying final

while Collingwood take on the resurgent West Coast. But Mick Malthouse may not have key defender Chris Tarrant, who limped off the field with a leg injury. In front of a sell-out home crowd farewelling Adam McDougall, the Knights have secured the final spot in the NRL's top eight with a memorable 40-24 point win over the Rabbitohs. Newcastle had the Bunnies on the hop from the start, running in three quick tries before going to the break, leading by 24 points. When Akila Uate crossed for his hat-trick it looked over getting within 10 points with time still on their side. Uate put the result beyond doubt though with a minute on the clock with this 90-metre dash. COMMENTATOR: Four tries... equals the Newcastle record. And Wayne Bennett is confident his Dragons are ready for the finals after picking up a 32-12 win over the Panthers. A major upset at the US Open, women's third seed Maria Sharapova knocked out in three sets during the third round by Italy's Flavia Pennetta. Sharapova had been among the favourites for the title and her departure opens the door a little more for our Sam Stosur. Australia are just five wickets away from securing a rare Test victory in a low-scoring first Test against Sri Lanka. On a dodgy track in Galle, the home side appears destined for defeat, chasing an improbable 379 for the win. At stumps on day three Sri Lanka was 5/120. Ryan Harris has three wickets as the Aussies also fight the possibility of rain. Sally Pearson is the hot favourite to break Australia's gold medal duck at the World Athletics Championships tonight. Pearson blitzed her heat, running her fastest time this year. And long jumper Mitchell Watt had to settle for silver overnight, hampered by a calf injury. That's still a great That's still a great result. The Socceroos have salvaged 2-1 win against a brave Thailand at Suncorp Stadium thanks to a late goal from substitute Alex Brosque. They had trailed 1-0 before Josh Kennedy equalised in a pretty scratchy performance, giving Australia a much-needed wake-up call. That was probably one of the worst performances we've had for a very long, long time. And you know...there's no excuses. We've got to pick our game up, it wasn't good enough today and we all know it. They take on Saudi Arabia in the desert heat on Wednesday. So those are compression socks, we will give you that. You would have to be - imagine the sand in your shoes and everything as a long jumper. That's exactly right. I just spat over you there with that. You are having a very difficult day. I am. My eyelashes gluing together. All of secrets are out I think if you are a long jumper, I think you get used to sand in your shoes. I hate it. Sorry, sorry, I hate it, I have something in my shoe. I have to put my socks on. I was going to an Austrian nightclub tonight. I have to get my long socks on tonight. JT is in the bay as we like to call it here on the Seven Network. Do you think people watch at home, and think is everybody crazy on that show? Is everybody a little bit wild. Yes, we got emails about that but I think The Guardian ship board won't let me read them. This whole week on Seven will be wild, This whole week on Seven will be wild,'Wild Boys' starts tomorrow. I have seen episode 1. It is fantastic, Daniel MacPherson, Michael Dore man, Nah than yal Dean. Jeremy Simms. A very exciting episode and then'Home and Away'. It has cleared a bit. But it's coming on Monday. I thought don't look a gift horse in the mouth. I am a weatherman. There is a storm come be, maybe I can use that to get to the show. I don't think it worked out that well. I will show you be, maybe I can use that to get on

Weatherman, they are going to need a weather presenter if theres a storm coming at Summer Bay. I thought maybe I could get on the show. I thought one way was to start at crew and work my way into the cast. I got all nervous and excited. I think I went a bit big. Take a look. Shooting 'Home and Away' scene 101.

I think it would be great. This will look quite different. There is some serious money spent on this. What, is there? Two camera shoot? We Two camera shoot? We have always got two camera. We had to bring extra crew on because we had to have huge wind machines and a lot of debris. So a lot of setting up shots. I wish you had called me, I've got a lot of experience working with a wind machine. It's called Andrew O'Keefe. He is full of it isn't he? Sam Armytage said please give Dana big The name, the name just, oh. As a begin us world record As a begin us world As a begin us As a begin us begin us world record holder? You mean I drink more than the average man. I would imagine that some weeks, you are in studio, it's kind of same, same. Doing big scenes like this, is that for you a big thrill? Look, it's at my tender age, it's Leichhardt work now these days. Sam certainly gave me a few hugs and kisses along the way. She denies it all she wants but the fact is, we are a thing. Is it going to be a good news story, we are not losing a member of the bay? If I told you that you that, I would probably have to get a Hitman to look after you. There is definitely drama aplenty. If you have to go, getting done by a Hitman that Ray Stewart has put out, that's pretty cool. I wouldn't mind that. If Alf Stewart puts a Hitman on to you, Flaming hell. I can't believe I got that wrong. that wrong.. You are never going to get on this show if you get the star character's name show if you get the star character's name wrong but if someone were to go on the bay, it opens up a space, doesn't it? Yes, you would look good in a policeman's outfit perhaps. Mm, JT Your words, not mine. We will talk to you soon. Thank you, JT See you in half why. Julia Gillard is digging her heels in despite questions over her leadership and her senior ministers are pledging support. Even so former ALP powerbroker Graham Richardson says it'll be tough to recover from this week's sinking of the Malaysia solution. When you get this low, when you're doing this poorly, I don't think you can recover. She is so on the nose with the public, she might get a few points but her popularity is falling. I hope I'm wrong but I don't think I am. The PM is holding on, for now. With more we're joined by Seven News political reporter Alex Hart in Canberra. Good morning, Alex. What are you hearing about reports of rumblings and discontent within the Labor Party? Yeah, a few things, Sam. I think publically most people acknowledge that the party in a dire position but they are clinging to a faint but genuine hope that the party can turn it around if the Parliament runs full term, that is two years until the next election is due but there is undoubtedly a growing feeling that nothing can be done. That only a political miracle will save the government and that's where these mutterings are coming from. The trouble is that even those who want to get rid of jug, know to do so would effectively bring down the government straight away. The independents made it clear that their deal to support Labor is Julia Gillard, if you take her away, they will take aware their support. their deal to support Labor is with

But, an electoral wipe out is on the cards. You can understand there is muttering going on, even cards. You can understand where possibly, about a return to Kevin Rudd, given everything that has happened over the past year, you would think that would be impossible. Senior ministers ruled that out yesterday but he is already more popular than her in the polls. The school of The school of thought if he was drafted back, perhaps Labor still might lose but they would save a few seats and keep a few Labor MPs in power. Julia Gillard says she is not going anywhere. Labor leaders tend to say this. How do you think, she then re builds the public trust? As Graham Richardson said, they really are on the nodes at the moment? Richo I think is right on this one. The question you have to ask your first first, can she rebuild the public's trust. That's a very daunting task. Just consider what she would have to achieve. She would have to get the carbon tax in and get it accepted. The Craig Thomson affair that's would need to disappear into thin air, the mining tax. The budget surplus, that was promised, it looks like it's a shaky ground. The poker machine reforms that independent Andrew Wilkie said if they don't get through, he will pull his sport. That's no certainty. Then she needs to find a solution to the asylum seeker problem that can be implemented, B is legal and C, that works. A very tough task ahead, Sam. To use that old cliche a, she has a lot on her plate. She does. Have a great weekend. You are busy between now and

Christmas, Sammy. The treatment of women by our NRL and AFL clubs is again under scrutiny. The codes have been working hard to promote a culture of respect towards women. But now, is in hot water for making a sexist comment to a female sports journalist. Peters made the remark as Megan Barnard was trying to interview Sea Eagles player Glenn Stewart. How do you feel about this, happy to get the adjournment? You're a good sort. What's that? You're a good sort. There was a comment made last night that was inappropriate in the circumstances. He's apologised and the club apologises as well. Peters was temporarily suspended from the club. But he's now been reinstated and will be joining the Sea Eagles in Brisbane for tomorrow's clash against the Broncos. The reporter at the centre of the issue says she wasn't offended. So what's OK and what's not OK to say these days? With more, we're joined by social commentator Melinda Tankard Reist. Good morning, Melinda. 'A good sort'. Is it a sexist comment? It seems odd to fob a journalist off with a comment that they are a good sort. I mean, would you go so far to say that's a sexist It is. say that's a sexist comment have to look at the context here. You have a professional working It is. It's also unprofessional. You

female journalist trying to do her job, trying to get a comment and appropriate thing for her to do and she is fobbed off as she is really put down, dismissed with this term. Now, women journalists I think most professional working women, want to be judged on their ability to do the job, not on their looks. It inappropriate. He shouldn't have done it. job, not on their looks. It was

Indeed. You would have to compare that with the issue - the scenario of a male jurn lift trying to get the same question in. Certainly that male journalist would male journalist wouldn't have been fobbed off with the comment " fobbed off with the comment "You are a a good looking bloke" this isn't just happening in just happening in the domain of the sporting well am, this happens everyone. So it shouldn't be treated lightly. It shouldn't be dismissed. His actions are a re His actions are a reflection of what is happening in the broader culture but I do think it's right for the codes to take a tough line on this. There should be a zero tolerance policy because we have seen just so much bad behaviour in the sporting domain and it's all unacceptable. It's all part of a continuum. That judges women on their physical appearance, not on their ability to do their jobs. We should say that the AFL and the NRL have both worked very hard over the last ten years or so to institute their respect and responsibility programs. And so yes, it's amazing that they jumped in so quickly on this. And shows that they really walk the walk. I would like to see them walk the walk, even more often. We still have out breaks of bad bee yaf yaw. We see this sense of entitlement that many male players tend to think they can do what they want, yes, we have the codes but we need to see more done to implement done to implement them so we see of this bad behaviour stamped out permanently. done to implement them so we see all

Melinda, obviously a great place for that change of attitude is at the top and what has happened to Peters, is a good interest daigs of the fact that that needs to happen top and what has happened to Peter

A planned change to the way history is taught in our schools has sparked outrage. Under the new national history curriculum, the birth of Jesus Christ will no longer be cited when recording dates. High school students will not use the terms BC and AD when referencing dates. Instead, they will use the neutral terms BCE and CE. Which seems I've got to say, Sammy, to be utterly incorrect to be calling it the common era, it's only common to Christians. Chinese use a completely different calendar and so do Muslims. It's interesting. Let's just tinker away.. It's over to our Weekend All Stars - author and comedian Tim Ross and film director Gretel Killeen. Good morning to you both. Tim, do you think it's time to refresh the way we reference dates? No. Look I don't really see the reason to change it. I think there are other things we can worry about and Bert and Ernie getting married and important things. Whether or not the bananas are brothers. Let's leave it to the historians x if this is what they want to do, it's their caper. It's just another thing that I am going to have to deal with when my son is at school. PBD. I don't really see the point in changing it. But if that's what they want to do, so be It kind of seems to me odd that historians of all people would be want to do, so be it.

whitewashing history in this way. I am not really sure that it is

them. Can I imagine somebody at the meeting, going why don't we try this, oh kidding, we don't want to be seen to be politically incorrect. I don't know why they don't just change it before political correctness. What about the letter T, that looks like a cross, that will have to go from the alphabet. What will we call Christchurch, the ramifications and our political and legal system are both based on Christianity, this is really the beginning of an avalanche. I am worried about the movie, 10,000 BC, people won't know what the movie is about in the future. That was a classic, wants it They did a remake, yes. Is there a Jack Black classic. It's one of those things, even you have no Christian faith, you can not deny that the Christian fact has It's one of those things, even if

in that period, been probably the most influential thing to happen to western society.

Moving on and Australian tennis star Jarmilla Gajdosova has shut down her Twitter account after a wave of abuse. After being knocked out of the US Open, angry tennis fans waged personal attacks against the 24-year-old, forcing her off the social network. Tim, do you think more could be done to monitor anonymous online defamation? It was pretty offensive with she to put up with. What they said to her, that said again, you can block people on Twitter. If someone says something you don't like, you block them. It's a two edged sword. It's a great thing for people to be as a pirnlt or a tennis player to be able to connect with your fans in a way that people have never been able to do of the down side is people can say anything you like. She has about 6,000 followers. So she most probably read to things that people say to her It's a kind of hard nature in the celebrity. Not everyone out there has good heart and goodwill. There are a lot of nut bags. Twitter is full of them. The problem with Twitter, it has been a stalk area's paradise. If you are a bit nutty, it gets you straight into everything. Is that your personal experience? He stalks several people. Look you know, there is a few people who follow Prue who have attacked me. I have just blocked them, including Prue. It's pretty simple. I hope she is streaming this wherever she is. Do you tweet I don't. I am not that interesting. I don't find anyone else that interesting to be honest. It doesn't matter. Who is this woman? I never knew anything about her until suddenly we don't want know anything about it her. Jarmila Gajdosova she is quite a well known tennis player for us. It's a conversation.
