Plenty of workers inside. -- captured it all. 117-year-old is thrown around and forced to hand over their cash. One of them is wearing a clown's mask.

We had an armed robbery at the same place on Parramatta Road. There were four offenders that entered the premises.I went to the front to get a drink. I saw this guy jumping over the counter, wearing a mask. I thought it was a joke but he took out a machete. He got my co-worker by the neck and said to get the cash.The men drove off in a silver car. Police believe it had been car jack on Wednesday from a couple at gunpoint and used for an armed robbery, before the robbery last night. That car was recovered at a nearby park and is being forensically examined. The sad news, one of the workers last night was a 15-year-old boy.

The future of this state
depends on it. Our kids are counting on it. But the O'Farrell Government is ripping the guts out of
TAFE colleges and public schools. And ripping off our kids with it. And more cuts to come for sure. When these kids can't get a job, are we gonna say, "We knew what
would happen, but did nothing"? No. No! We're going to take a stand.
(SCHOOL BELL RINGS) Get online and tell O'Farrell
to reverse the education cuts.

The announcement of this year's winner of the Nobel Peace Prize has been met with gasps and laughter. The Nobel peace prize of 2012 is to be awarded to the European Union.

Our reporter joins us from Dairy Farmers Stadium. You have been following the teams today. How were they?Very relaxed. The World Cup champions might be looking good but the Kiwis were quietly confident. The team-mates enjoyed a bit of a The team-mates enjoyed a bit of a - - handball. The Kiwis enjoyed some cricket/tenors. Both camps are very happy that the tropics have turned on a mild day by North Queensland's standards.You still get the humidity and sweat that rubs off on the ball. But all week, we have handled the heat quite well. Most of our training sessions have been pretty good.Plenty of friends and family have arrived in Townsville, including the Slaters.We will go back to horses, for sure. That is what we like to go there. But obviously, footy does well. We will stick with that until he is finished.Of course hopefully retirement is a fair way off for him.

Sonny Bill Williams says he would love to link up with Wallaby Quade Cooper at the Sydney Roosters next year. Having won a World Cup and a Super 15 title, he is looking forward to returning to the NRL. For me, it's a done deal. I made this deal a long time ago. I know where I will play next year. I am just ready to meet the challenge. Williams is in peak condition. He is training for a boxing bout against South African Francois Botha, as well as playing rugby in Japan. The Socceroos are drawing a line in the sand in Doha, putting their disappointing form in the World Cup qualifiers behind them. They are preparing for Wednesday morning's clash with Iraq.We know our strengths and we do have a lot of them. We just need to get back to the basics. Just have that belief in ourselves, that we are good enough to take on anyone.The Socceroos have scored only two goals in their three matches. They need to overtake Iraq and Jordan in their group to qualify automatically, with five games remaining. In the A-league, Adelaide United has made it two wins from two matches, beating Western Sydney 1-0. Jeronimo scored the winner, making up for an earlier penalty miss. Today, Alessandro Del Piero's Sydney FC takes on Emile Heskey's Newcastle. Captain Michael Clarke has returned to where it all began, scoring 38 for Western Suburbs in the Sydney competition. He hopes more Test players follow his lead.I remember as a kid, the big names playing for NSW. It was a thrill to be training with those guys. If the international players are available, I don't see why it is any different these days.Clarke says he has been working on his fitness and was nervous walking to the crease. There's been a big surprise at the Caulfield Guineas, Gai Waterhouse trained Pierro losing for the first time. The super colt was a very hot favourite but Black Caviar's half brother All Too Hard cruised past.

It would have been a shock to one punter who had $250,000 on Pierro to win. Already the winner of four group one races, Pierro will still go on to contest the Cox Plate if he pulls up well. And Mark Webber has qualified fastest for the Korean Formula 1Grand Prix.

But an icy chill brought the coldest October night in well over half a century to parts of northern Queensland and NSW. Today, south- westerly winds are causing a few showers in Victoria, Tasmania and south-east NSW. There is still a dangerous surf along the NSW coast. It should ease tomorrow as the low moves away. A cold front is bringing showers and possible storms to western parts of WA. A high will keep skies clear in the east tomorrow. A few showers on the Queensland coast. Hot northerly winds to build in WA. Some showers in south-west WA.

That's the news this Saturday. Our next bulletin is at 6pm. Enjoy your evening. Supertext captions by Red Bee Media -

I'll tell you what,
heli-fishing, what a treat. # Theme music Woo hoo!

(Line whirrs)

(Children chant) (Line whirrs) Ha-ha! Oh!

It's not until you take
a bird's-eye view of the Top End that you can really appreciate just how many fishy
and possibly never-fished spots there are up here. Aboard one of these big boys' toys, the waters of the Mary River
flood plain are all yours. Find a spot big enough
to park the bird, and you can get to
some unique fishing spots. Since my last visit,
the boys from Albatross Helicopters have been busy testing the waters,
as they call it. Angus said it was research -
I'm sure it's work, somehow - but sounds more like
a fantastic excuse to wet a line. Anyway, they've found
some great barramundi holes within a cast
from where they land the chopper. Rightio, Angus.
I'm pumped about this, mate. Where are we headed? We're headed up, right at the
minute, up towards Cape Hotham, just following Adelaide River along
up to the mountain and we'll branch off to the north into a little spot up there
at Cape Hotham. Angus, what sort of fish
are we expecting to catch out at Cape Hotham? At Cape Hotham,
we usually catch barramundi, threadfin salmon and there's
some cod in there as well. There's quite a variety of fish
in the area up here in a little creek. Mate, what's the attraction
of the choppers to normal boat- and bank-fishing? I mean, it's an obvious question,
but you gotta tell me about that. Yeah, with the helicopters, we can go into areas
that boats can't generally get into. So there's little creeks and things that you just can't get to
in a boat. And you can't drive there,
certainly. And you could walk if you were game,
but you may not get there. But, generally,
you could sorta get to a lot of inaccessible places
fairly quickly with the helicopter. Mate, those things I'm seeing
down in the river, are they logs? No, they're not logs, Rob. They're
crocodiles. There's quite a few. There's an estimated
6,000 saltwater crocodiles in Adelaide River,
in the Adelaide River system. I'm not sure how
they work that number out, but that's the latest estimate -
6,000. Some of them look pretty big. Yeah, there's some big ones
in there, that's for sure. There's one that I saw the other day
down on the flood plain, it was probably 17ft. So there's some
pretty big crocodiles around. We're just coming up
on the first spot now. And this spot would normally take
you - if you had the right weather - about three hours by boat. If not, a bit more.
It's taken us just on 20 minutes. And in this thing here,
with Angus at the helm, I'm feeling like a giant mosquito
about to swoop down on those fish.

Oh. Mate. Water looks good.
Does indeed. Nice to know no-one else
has been here, too. That's right. You can see no-one else
has been here. Yeah.
Let's get to the water.

See some fish down in there, Angus.
Yeah. You like this little bend? Yeah, it's a good spot here.

Got to be very ginger
to get in there. Just sneak in?
Yeah. Righto. OK.
The key is not to scare 'em. Rightio. OK. From the very first cast,
I knew this spot would fire. The barra hit the Storm shad,
but I failed to hook up. Barra have this amazing
burst of speed that can just blow your lure,
literally, out of the water. After the break, the mother of all barramundi
gets the adrenaline pumping.
