Andrew and Mel.

Good morning.

'Skyfall' is the 23rd Bond movie and it's Daniel Craig's
third time playing 007. Our report on the red carpet
is coming up. , It's report from the red carpet. Not a report on the red carpet:

We're packed with stars
this morning. J-Lo's Coming... What is it in Australia? It's like the future. So say hello to the future. Good morning!

See the superstar singer
in our next hour. But we'll begin with the news
of this Wednesday. Here's Nat. Good morning. A Sydney man has described
his terror as his house burned down around him
while he was in the shower last night. Two adjoining homes at Guilford,
in the city's west, suffered serious damage
in the blaze. But Andrew Vukov is more concerned
about his neighbours, who are overseas on holiday. Unfortunately, I think
they coming back next week and they house is gone. I don't know is insured
or not insured. And also in Sydney, a firefighter
was taken to hospital after being hit by falling
power lines at a separate blaze. He suffered an electric shock,
during a fire at Miranda, in the city's south.

Victoria Police
have released the image of a man wanted over a sex attack
near Melbourne. A 32-year-old woman was walking
on the Bay Trail in Elwood around 8:00 Saturday night when she was approached by a man. He threatened her
before forcing her into bushes and sexually assaulting her. He's aged in his 20s, with
a raspy voice and light blue eyes. There are calls for tougher
regulations on police tasers following the release
of a highly critical report accusing officers
of abusing their powers. The New South Wales Ombudsman found police misuse the weapon
one in every seven times, including on people fleeing
or in handcuffs. 46 recommendations have been made
to tighten guidelines for Tasers. They include using only to protect
police or victims from serious harm and no direct contact
with a suspect's skin. Brisbane Lions captain Jonathan
Brown says he's looking forward
to getting back to training after being hit by a car
on the Gold Coast yesterday. The AFL legend was struck
while cycling in a large group. But he says the car came off worse and he only needed 10 stitches
on his elbow.

An Australian ship on its way
to Antarctica is stuck in ice. The 'Aurora Australis' hasn't been
able to move for two days after becoming frozen in, 150 kilometres off
the Antarctic coast. The 50 scientists onboard will
study the relationship between sea ice and marine life when they eventually
get to Antarctica. They're not in any danger, and just have to wait
for the weather to change. Prince Charles and Camilla
have walked the red carpet at the premiere of the new
James Bond movie in London. 'Skyfall' is the 23rd instalment of the longest-running film
franchise in history. Daniel Craig is playing
007 for the third time, and says the reception
has been overwhelming. It's very thrilling,
we've got the best cast, the best director, the best crew. It's a huge collaborative process
that involves many, many people and I get a thrill out
of being a part of it. 'Skyfall' opens in the UK on Friday but Australians will have
to wait until November 22.

Prominent owner John Singleton is
at loggerheads with Gai Waterhouse over the trainer's strategy for this weekend's $3 million
Cox Plate. Waterhouse stunned onlookers by choosing gate 11 for Singleton's
champion mare More Joyous at the barrier draw. Singleton has branded
the decision suicidal but Gai's sticking to her guns. The reason is that there might be
some squeeze barriers and it just gives her
a little bit more room to move... I chose 11.

Waterhouse will also saddle up
favourite Pierro and Proisir in the weight-for-age championship. The Perth Scorchers have overcome
some pre-match controversy to win their final match at

Apple has confirmed all the rumours, launching its new mini iPad
this morning. There'd been much speculation
and hype about a smaller and cheaper tablet
from Apple. It's a move into a market
dominated by Amazon and Google. And it's the first compact computing
device to be released by the company since the death of Steve Jobs. Seven News US bureau chief Mike Amor
joins us live from San Jose, California,
where the launch has taken place. Mike, take us through what Apple
has released this morning. ,

Yeah, it wasn't a very well kept secret. Yes, there is an iPad mini. It is going to be available from Friday of next week. It's smaller obviously than the iPad. They also launched the iPad 4 today, just in comparison to the size, the mini is 200 mm by 134 mm wide, compare that to the eye ad, 280 by 1 - 240 by 180. They say it is smaller. They want people to be able to hold it in one hand. Price wise it will be $ one hand. Price wise it will be $369 for the base model which is wifi only. It's quite a new market for Apple. How does this stack up against the ones that are already there, the ones by am zon and dog will in particular? ones by am zon and dog will in ones by am zon and dog will ones by am zon and dog ones by am zon and ones by am zon ones by am ones by ones The one am why son and Google in particular. They started to eat in some of the market share. They have gone with this smaller version to try to stave off the competition, from the Kindle Fire. It's about the same price, the product is better. Apple very keen to point out there are 275,000 applications for the iPad mini which is a lot more than its competitors. Apples says they have sold 100 million eye pads around the world. We saw with the release of the iPhone 5, you don't have to get much of a change to get people very excited. It will be the same with the mini. the mini.? Yeah, absolutely. It probably has something do with that holiday coming up called Christmas that we have released the iPad mini and updated the iPad to the iPad 4. The crowds have died down just outside Apple stores and the queues will start again in the coming weeks as these products come out. They are very smart, very smart, those people at Apple. Thank you, those people at Apple. Thank you, Mike.. That's why they are tril airs and we're not. Point

There's a row brewing in Adelaide
over the keys to the city given to disgraced cyclist
Lance Armstrong. One city councillor says
he should give them back. It denigrates the other people who've done wonderful things
on the board so I personally would like
to see him removed from the board. But Lord Mayor Stephen Yarwood says Armstrong was given the keys
to the city for his contribution
to South Australia and those contributions
are still valid. So should Lance Armstrong give
back the keys to Adelaide?

Thoughts. The thing is in Adelaide, he set up a fantastic cancer treatment SEN certificate toe a lot of money he has put through there through the South Australian government. It's the classic thing. Two elements to it, for what he has done in riding, yes, for what he's done for the community is significant. It's a really tough one I don't think that you can pretend that the man doesn't exist. The cycling world has. That's what they've said. I guess separating the two things is quite difficult too. I know he did good things but Ron ib inhood. I can't separate it because it was Tony it was inhood. I can't separate it because it was tainted money. He got that in a drug money. You would take the keys. They are trying to sue him now because - they were giving him $ because - they were giving him $2. because - they were giving him $2.5 million to race down there. The simple answer is, let him keep the key but change the

for the news headlines with Nat. A firefighter has been injured while
fighting a blaze in Sydney's south. Powerlines fell on top of him -
giving him an electric shock - after a garage caught fire
at Miranda. Despite his injury, he kept fighting

The tragic death of a young boy
south of Perth has prompted new safety warnings
about televisions. The 5-year-old died after
a TV fell on him at his family home in the town
of Collie. It's devastated
the tight-knit community. The town is small enough
and strong enough to give all the support
that is needed for these people. It's not yet known what type
of television was involved but experts say all units
should be properly secured. The parents of Melbourne twins
have an anxious day ahead of them as one of their babies undergoes
life-changing surgery. 10-month-old brothers Kyle and Jesse
were born with a rare disease that causes sections of the skull
to fuse too early. Kyle was operated
on successfully last week. Just take deep breaths
and just think positively and trust that he's in good hands. The operation is expected
to take about eight hours. It's a first for the Royal
Children's Hospital in Melbourne. Oz Lotto will jackpot

The Perth Scorchers
have won their final match at the Twenty20 Champions League despite dumping the Marsh brothers
Shaun and Mitch for disciplinary reasons
before the game. Perth defeated the Auckland Aces
by 16 runs in Centurion. Former test spinner Michael Beer
claimed three wickets to ensure the Scorchers ended
a disappointing campaign on a high. All I'll say is that there's players
who played today , And players didn't play today that let the team down in

It's understood the Marsh brothers could face
further disciplinary action when they return to Australia. The Adelaide Crows could face
AFL draft penalties over the Kurt Tippett trade saga. It's believed club officials
have admitted they struck a secret side deal
with Tippett when they re-signed the key forward
in 2009. It allowed Tippett to be traded
to the club of his choice in exchange
for a second-round draft pick. The Crows didn't disclose
the agreement to the AFL in 2009 and may be investigated
for draft tampering. French raider Brigantin is a firm
favourite for today's Geelong Cup which has developed into one

The final debate has taken place
in the battle for the White House and it seems the President
has just come out in front. The memorable lines from the first
two clashes included Romney sacking Big Bird
and ordering binders full of women. This time it was bayonets as Barack
Obama mocked his Republican rival. I think Governor Romney maybe hasn't spent enough time
looking at how our military works. You mentioned the navy, for example, and how we have fewer ships
than we did in 1916. Well, Governor we also have fewer
horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military
has changed. Romney didn't take it lying down, saying the President's
foreign policy has been based around apologising for America. And then the President began
what I've called an apology tour - of going to various nations
in the Middle East and apologising for America. I think they looked at that
and saw weakness. Now it's a sprint to the finish. The candidates have been neck
and neck in the polls and election day is two weeks away. CNN's Emily Schmidt joins us
live now from Washington DC. Emily, is it fair to say
Obama really went on the attack during this debate? , Certainly, fair to say, if you think about these three debates, he was viewed as having a lacklustre performance in the first one, second one, he was able to physically go toe to toe, this time they were sitting behind desks. He chose sarcasm, with bayonets and horses. That exploded on social media. Helped the president Helped the president get his point across, not only on the debate stage but across the Internet. He came it with the advantage of being Commander in Chief. One thing interesting, for Mitt Romney, instead of being combative. He was viewed of how much he agreed with the president, things like agreeing on the timeline of the 2014 on the troop draw troop on the timeline of the 2014 on the troop draw down to the killing of obl. Drone strikes, Egypt, Lib why, all of those position, he agreed with. So certainly, a different change of pace, not necessarily what people were expecting from Mitt Romney. That is what we were talking about today. Considering the pole results, how do you think this r h l l you think this r h l you think this r h you think this r you think this you think you Considering the pole results, how Considering the pole results, Considering the pole Considering the Considering

poll results, A very A very quick snapshot, a flash poll that was taken just after the debate. They gave the within it president Obama, 48% to 40% who thought that Mitt Romney won but something important, that's who they something important, that's who thought that particular debate which tended to focus on foreign policy. Americans are focussed on the economy, Mitt Romney is seen as getting stronger. That's why this race is so close. 6 November, a big day. Thank you very much, Emily very much, Emilily for

A Melbourne Council has banned
zombies from local parks in what's being tagged
'prejudice against the un-dead'. Glen Eira Council says
a game called Humans vs Zombies is not an appropriate activity. It involves a group of people,
some dressed as zombies, running around a park
chasing each other. This is the same council that banned a group of teenagers
from playing frisbee until they got a $120 permit.

Anthony Osborne
is secretary and treasurer of Humans vs Zombies Victoria. He is also a candidate in this
weekend's local council elections. Good morning.

Can you start by explaining what
Humans vs Zombies is all about? ,

Humans versus Zombies is a game of tag. It just involves t starts off with a small group of parties tants starting off as zombies, whose goal it is to tag those who are human, the humans become zombies and to defend themselves, humans have dark glasses. So it's a bit of social fun. Basically. Why did the council say it was an inappropriate activity They didn't clarify what they meant by inappropriate. So unfortunately I don't know what they meant by it. I see. Have there been other groups targeted by the council, wear, noms, vampires? As far as I know, Glen Iris just have fun with frisbee tlors, if they have targeted anyone else, I don't know. You are running in this week's council elections, are the undead allowed to vote or only living residents. Probably dead are still on the roster. I hope only the living are voting. Let's hope it's a full moon, you may get the ban overturned. Thank you for joining us. Woo we did invite someone from the council, they were someone from the council, they unable to get out of their coffin so they didn't get back to us. Over to you,

If you get a bit nervous
when you're in a lift, you're not going to like this new ad
from electronics company LG. It shows technicians secretly lining
the floor of an elevator with high-tech screens. Passengers get into
what looks like a normal lift. Then the pictures on the screens
change to make it look like the floor is
collapsing beneath their feet, revealing the lift shaft below. As you would expect, the passengers
appear shocked then relieved once they work out
what's just happened. But does the ad work? Advertising expert Matthew Bywater
from 4promote.com.au is here to talk about the new ad. Good morning. First of all, is this ad real? , There is speculation that it's a green screen. It's hard to tell at this early stage. LG are remaining tight-lipped about T the a lot of buzz is that it's not real. I thought this is generated in the United States. Can't than real. Somebody will sue somebody but it has developed in The Netherlands, maybe. Maybe. So do you think it could be actors? It could be actors of It could be actors It could be actors. Very convincing actors. She looked like she wants to sue somebody. She is very angry. Do you think it its job advertising the product? I gather it's advertising the screens? I think it does. It uses humour, it may be scary for the people who are inside the lift but for everyone else, this else, this has not aired in Australia. It is coming through on YouTube. It's quite fun, if people are asking what it is about, these screen are real life. They did not know until it fell away. LG is saying thank you very much. We haven't spent any Mori. Does fear work in advertising something? It can work. I use it with some caution. Sometimes fear can actually get away from the message you are trying to sell across. Often when you talk to consumers, they will tell you that people often have what they call a perception defence, an anti-smoking ad, somebody who is a really heavy smoker or a hoon of a driver, they tend to block it out. They actually are aware of the ad but their brain will but their brain will block it out. This is not me, this is meant for somebody else. Right so they have to be careful. We will see will see whether that LG one comes to Australia. It's amazing. It freaked me out. They could go further, project sharks into the local pool. Don't give them idea. You Don't give them idea. You heard what Matthew said

(SONG) # Reach out for the sunrise # Reach out for the sunrise. # Right across Australia,
this is Sunrise on Seven. From Brekky Central,
Andrew and Mel. Hello again, more on the
'Skyfall' red carpet soon. But we'll begin this hour
with Nat and the news. Good morning. A man has escaped unhurt after two homes were damaged
by fire Sydney's west. Sunrise correspondent Edwina
Bartholomew is in Guildford. Eddie, how bad is the damage? ,

Well, one home has been destroyed, Nat and the next door neighbour's property, they have some serious damage to their roof. The fire started around 11 o'clock. Last here here on Rawson Road. It started at number 57 at the back of the property where a car also went up in flames. There was no-one home at that time. We understand that time. We understand are away on holidays. It then spread to number 59. Some damage there in the roof as I mentioned. There was one person home at the time. Here is what he had to say about his lucky escape. And when I was in the bathroom, I heard some pop, pop, pop, pop and I coming out and opened the back door and I looked and I saw the fire in the garage.

A car fire in Sydney's south has destroyed a carport. Two people had to be evacuated there at the scene and a firefighter was injured. The power line that connects the street to the home actually fell down and hit him. He was the supervise or on site. He remained there until that blaze was out and then was taken by his crew to the hospital where he his crew to the hospital where treated for minor electric shock, Nat. Thank you very much,

Three people have been charged
with drug offences after police carried out
search warrants on five homes in Sydney's south-west. Officers seized methylamphetamine,
cannabis and prescription drugs from a house at Fairfield Heights
early yesterday. They also found a stun-gun
and stolen property. A baby was taken
into protective custody. The raids are part of a crackdown
on drug supply in the area. Police in Melbourne
have released an image of a man wanted over
a sexual assault near Elwood Beach. Sunrise correspondent Nick Etchells
joins me now live. Hello, Nick. The victim has been able
to give police a good description of her attacker? , She has been able to give police a very good description. We will have an image for you in a few moments. The victim is a 32-year-old woman who was walking along the Bay Trail which is a very popular walking track. She was sexually assaulted about this man who dragged her off into the bushes. He is described as being in his mid 20s, the a raspy voice and also wearing what police describes as hip-hop jeans. They are saying that there was a place near by where loud techno music was heard and they would like to speak with anyone who has some information on that. They have also set up a caravan, an information caravan to jolt people's memory and hopefully some witnesses will come forward. As we say, a 32-year-old Sanchez-Vicario Tim, this puts everone on edge, especially after the Jill Meagher experience. So anyone is asked to call Crime Stoppers. Thank you very much,

There are calls for tougher
regulations on police tasers following the release
of a highly critical report accusing officers
of abusing their powers. The New South Wales Ombudsman found police misuse the weapon
one in every seven times, including on people fleeing
or in handcuffs. 46 recommendations have been made
to tighten guidelines for tasers. They include using only to protect
police or victims from serious harm and no direct contact
with a suspect's skin. Kevin Rudd has put himself back
in the national spotlight, calling for the public's help to
design election campaign T-shirts. Sunrise correspondent
Michelle Tapper joins me now from his Brisbane electorate. Michelle, what's Kevin up to now? ,

Good morning, Nat, well, Kevin has hit the campaign trail and the headlines again but not because he is vying for the top job. He is running for re-election in the Brisbane seat of Griffith and yesterday, he put the yesterday, he put the call out to fans and voters, to help him with his new campaign slogan. We all know that Kevin '07 slogan which was very popular and helped him secure the top job but yesterday he took to Twitter and announced to his mill yaw or so followers, that he needs their help. He went on to Facebook and said that as you know, he is dedicated to good fashion, but, campaign T shirts can be a little boring so it's up to you to help him out. Come up with a new slogan and he'll use it. There are no awards or prizemoney for the prizemoney for the one that oning, just the satisfaction knowing your design will be seen on hundreds of backs. There is no issue of whether Mr Rudd had his own slow began. A lot of people will be messaging Kevin. Thank you very much, Michelle for

The latest James Bond movie
has received a royal reception at its premiere in London. Prince Charles and Camilla
joined 007 on the red carpet to open the 23rd instalment,
'Skyfall'. Daniel Craig is playing Bond
for the third time. It's quite incredible. I've been to a couple
of Bond premiers, this has to top the lot. It's been an entertaining day
for the king-in-waiting - earlier he got in touch with
his inner child at a video arcade during a trip to the countryside. In finance news -

the decision suicidal but Gai's sticking to her guns. The reason is that there might be
some squeeze barriers and it just gives her

so I chose 11. Waterhouse will also saddle up
favourite Pierro and Proisir in the weight-for-age championship. The Perth Scorchers have overcome
some pre-match controversy to win their final match at
the Twenty20 Champions League. The Scorchers downed
the Auckland Aces by 16 runs despite having to axe

disciplinary issues in the past and could face further action
when they return home to Australia.

is developing into a leader on and off the field.

Police are under pressure to
crackdown on how tasers are used after the New South Wales Ombudsman
called for a significant overhaul. Bruce Barbour says
the device should only be used if officers are in danger
of serious harm. He says in a 6-month period the weapon was misused
one in seven times and released video case studies. Last warning. On the ground now. Taser! Taser! Taser! Taser! Taser! Taser!

The report's release coincides
with the end of a coronial inquest into the death of a Brazilian
student in Sydney. The 21-year-old was tasered 14 times
before he died. Let's get both sides of the issue. and the NSW Council for Civil
Liberties president Cameron Murphy also joins us. Good morning to you both.

can you understand the need
for an overhaul of taser use? ,

Well, definitely, we see from yesterday that the commissioner is willing to look at these recommendations. New South Wales has always been reviewing all of their tactical options and we see that not only do we have the camera but we have also audio there. We review all our taster incidents. So it's very important for us to actually sit down, talk to the ombudsman and come up with a safer and better solution. It seems that all operational things are reviewed relatively constantly anyway. Cameron, do you think the reforms suggested by the ombudsman would reforms suggested by the ombudsman would help prevent police going too far. Absolutely. I think the problem here is one that can't be corrected by a simple review. It's a fundamental issue in that we have given tasters to all police and police are misusing them where they are generally using them to try and get people to comply with simple directions. They should only be used as an alternative to lethal first. I think the first stop would be stopping police from using tasters. Removing them from the general police. Stop them all together you think. Until we know how they can be used safely. I think they should be removed from general duties police and given to specialist police, so they are only deployed in circumstances where they are actually going to save someone's life, not miss used in the way we see it. They are just being used to get people comply with simple directions. Scott, how would that go? Not at all. We see the taster, it's draw and cover. We see 73% of the time, police officers deploy the taster, that is, draw and cover, you call Otto fender to stop and that's the end of the situation. Police officers aren't injured and the offenders aren't injured. General duties police officers, they need to have this piece of equipment, to protect themselves, we have seen police assaults drop dramatically since the introduction of tasters. We would have discussed this topic but talking about guns Cameron, is it something that we can sit around a table and discuss. We are not out there on the front line faced in these situations. I would imagine they these situations. I would imagine theory it be quite different to practise. Absolutely. That's why I think we need to get not only the procedures and the rules right so that the police are using them but we have got to look at how we are deploying them and the consistent problem that comes up, the number of reviews now by ombudsman, by other people suggest they shouldn't have been rolled out to general duties police. The problem being that police are using them to try and get people to comply with the direction. So police officer mate say to you " officer mate say to you "look, move along or up the road" if the person fails to comply, the next step is to pull out a taster and say " pull out a taster and say "move off the road or I will taster you." That's why they are being misused and that will lead to serious injury, perhaps even death. We see police using them in drive stun mode where someone has been handcuffed. They are on the ground. They have been arrested. Yet they are still using it. It's just a misuse. There is no way to explain that conduct. I want to reiterate the ombudsman said overwhelmingly the use was justified in most cases. Here is Andrew

Apple has unveiled
its brand-new toy this morning and is hoping
it's another game changer. The mini iPad is smaller and cheaper
than a regular iPad and it's designed to take on devices
like the Kindle and Nexus 7.

Val Quinn from the Gadget Group is at the launch in San Jose,
California. So Val, apart from being smaller, what else can you tell us
about the iPad Mini?

Well, basically, it's got a 4G connectivity, meaning it will work on the 4G networks in Australia. Other than like it's like the larger eye pads. It does practically everything the larger eye pads do. It has a 10 hour Patty life. It's super light. About the weight of a small note pad and about as thin as a pencil. All of that crammed into a smaller package. The price is smaller package. The price is quite good for what you are getting. It's very competitive against the 7 inch tablets. I think it's a great device. Do you think there is no reason to buy the larger one, unless you prefer a larger screen? Yeah, I dif icees for different things. If you want something more compact that you can put into your bag or purchases and a carry easily. This will do just about everything the big one does. If you like to do a bit more reading, magazines and things like that on a larger screen, I would go for the bin bigger 10 inch version. I have a a quite a lot crammed into my purchases anyway. So I will stick to the bigger one.

Here's Nat.

The Oz Lotto jackpot has skyrocketed
to a whopping $70 million. 3.8 million tickets were purchased
in last night's division, but nobody claimed the $50 million.

Hope they're yours. Next Tuesday's draw will be
the second biggest lotto prize pool in Australia's history. Elissa Lewis from Tatts Lotteries
joins me now. Elissa, good morning. Nobody claimed the big prize but some Australians

following the breakdown
of his marriage. The star has taken to Twitter to express his feelings
about being away from his two sons. Showbiz editor Nelson Aspen joins us
now live from New York with the details. Nelson, good morning. What has Russell had to say? , It seems like just yesterday we were talking about Russell Crowe. You know what, we were. We were talking about his gushing praise of president Obama and taking on his critics. Today, he thanked a fan who had tweeted him. I mean, he is very active on Twitter. A fan had reached out to say that she was play praying for him and his family. He responded. That was the first time he has acknowledged all of this going on had his personal life. He went on to talk about the pain of missing his sons. He said

he also took out on the sort of haters out there. And said hey, haters, every minute you are harassing me, you are disputed from spewing hate who are restless lieutenant. Then he went back to tweeting about his work out tweeting about his work regiments and his beard, that he is sporting now to play Noah will be gone in mid November so he is not booking Christmas shows. There you go. Positive connective energy. When you know and you are used to putting groups of animals together. You would know all about positive energy. Has Danielle Spencer made any official comment yet. Not that I know of. There may be something in the Australian press that I've missed. Not that I know of. The nice thing about Russell using Twitter is that it gives him a sense of control. The celebrities like Twitter for that reason. The caution for celebrities as well as all of us who use Twitter is to think before you tweet. Indeed. All right. Obviously we wish Russell and Danielle the very best for the coming months which will be pretty difficult. Thank you, Nelson. Here

The latest instalment in the Bond
series has launched overnight, in style. The stars stepped onto
a bustling red carpet for the world premiere of 'Skyfall'
at Royal Albert Hall in London. It's the 23rd Bond movie and Daniel Craig's third time
playing 007. It's quite incredible. I've been to a couple of Bond
premiers, this has to top the lot. Her Majesty's Secret Service
had some real work to do as Prince Charles and Camilla
made a guest appearance. The new Bond, James Bond
opens in the UK on Friday but we'll have to wait
until 22 November to see it. NBC reporter Cheryll Simpson
was on the red carpet. Cheryll, joins us now live
from London. Good morning. Daniel Craig says this was the
biggest and the best Bond premiere he's ever been to. What was it like?

Mel, it was one of the most dramatic red carpets events that I've ever seen. The crowd went wild for each seen. The crowd went wild for each of the cast members. It was just insane. There was beauty, there was glamour, there was everything. I caught up with 007 himself. We just developed the story and tried to make the story as rich tried to make the story as rich and interesting as possible. I just do what is written. Do you think this is one of the best bonds. Not for me to say. We can all say it then.

The Bond girls from past
and present were there. You caught up with one of them to find out what it's like
to partner up with 007?

I did. I caught up with the Severine character. She did tell me that she was very excited about coming to Australia next month for the premier and she was dying to see the Big Red rock. It is absolute great, wonderful honour, most of you all now that I've got to meet all those people, which are so wonderful human beings that it is an experience I will never forget. I am absolutely honoured to be part of this experience. I think shy ticks the boxes there for Bond girl.

The previous film,
'Quantum of Solace', was considered by many
a disappointment. What are the critics saying
about this one?

Mel, that's right. It was a disappointing quantum of solace but the critics have hailed this bond as one of the best they have seen. Now, you know, this is the 50th anniversary of the first since the first release and they are saying this one directed by Sam is really going to be the best that we have seen in a very long time. We are so excited. 22 November opening in cinemas here in Australia. Cheryl, thank you for joining us. Nice to talk to you. That looks so ool. Did we talk gadgets. Remember last time there wasn't lot of damage et cetera and people didn't like that. This one has gone back to the old fashion Bond. The old iron Fleming Bond. He is mean on the inside. That actress was quite gorgeous, wasn't she? I didn't

The news headlines now, with Nat. Good morning. Forensic officers
are at the scene of a fire which destroyed a house
in Sydney last night. Neighbours called firefighters after noticing smoke coming
from the Guildford property. The flames also spread
to a neighbouring house where a car and carport
were destroyed. The owners of the first house
are away on holiday. Unfortunately, I think
they coming back next week and they're house is gone. I don't know is insured
or not insured. And also in Sydney,
a firefighter was taken to hospital after being hit by falling
power lines at a separate blaze. He suffered an electric shock. The Police Union has defended
the use of tasers in the NSW police force, despite pressure to crack down
on the way they're used. The Ombudsman
is calling for an overhaul after figures revealed the weapons are being misused
one in seven times they're deployed. General duties are the ones that
respond to your calls for help. They need to have this piece
of equipment to go out there not only to protect themselves
and protect the community. Civil liberties groups want tasers
banned immediately.

Former Victorian police chief
Simon Overland has been cleared of corrupt conduct despite accepting gifts
and benefits and giving a staffer
an unnecessary termination payout. The Ombudsman has confirmed
Overland accepted a temporary membership
of the Melbourne Cricket Club, tickets to the AFL Grand Final and appointed a senior executive
without a proper tender process. He says it set a bad example
for other police.

Brisbane Lions captain
Jonathan Brown says he's looking forward
to getting back to training after being hit by a car
on the Gold Coast yesterday. The AFL legend was struck
while cycling in a large group. But he says the car came off worse and he only needed 10 stitches
on his elbow. , Would , Would you really wanting to be the car that hit Jonathan Brown, wouldn't you?

The Perth Scorchers have won
their final match at the Twenty20 Champions League despite dumping the Marsh brothers
Shaun and Mitch for disciplinary reasons
before the game. Former test spinner Michael Beer
claimed three wickets to ensure the Scorchers ended
a disappointing campaign on a high. All I'll say is that
there's players that played today and players didn't play today that let the team down
in preparation. It's understood

the Marsh brothers could face
further disciplinary action when they return to Australia.

The Adelaide Crows could face
AFL draft penalties over the Kurt Tippett trade saga. It's believed club officials
have admitted they struck a secret side deal
with Tippett when they re-signed the key forward
in 2009. It allowed Tippett to be traded
to the club of his choice in exchange
for a second-round draft pick. The Crows didn't disclose
the agreement to the AFL in 2009 and may be investigated
for draft tampering. French raider Brigantin is a firm
favourite for today's Geelong Cup, which has developed into one
of the key lead-up events for the Melbourne Cup. The last two Cup winners,
Americain and Dunaden, have won at Geelong before tasting success
on the first Tuesday in November. Meanwhile, Gai Waterhouse's
glamour colt, Pierro, remains favourite for Saturday's
$3 million Cox Plate after drawing barrier 7.
