The guard has been arrested. He was apparently asleep on duty. The country's transport minister has resigned. There is a sliver of hope in the Middle East tonight, with a possible truce between Israel and Hamas in sight. Egypt is in talks with both sides but on the ground, the rockets keep flying, and the death toll keeps rising.

The sound of sirens and missiles. Another night and still no sign of either side backing down. Israeli warplanes pinpoint enemy targets, this one stroke to a house close to the home of Gaza's Prime Minister. The Hamas headquarters were destroyed. 300 air strikes in the past 24 hours. It is not enough to stop the militants. One rocket fired from Gaza struck this high- rise apartment in southern Israel. This is the impact zone where the rocket shut. Fortunately, the family were not here where happen. After a siren sounded, they had about 15 seconds to move. Together, they ended up in a safe room. They survived. A neighbour is exalted from the stress of constant rocket attacks. Another one was on its way as we filmed her damage home. We took shelter with her family in their safe room.

ANNOUNCER: Earth. According to the internet, it houses 7 billion humans, controlled by two main superpowers - Australia and New Zealand. Their empires stretched across the planet as their kings vied for control. The battle for supremacy has gone on for thousands of years. It began when New Zealand built the pyramids. Australia countered by constructing the Great Wall of China. New Zealand produced the Rolling Stones, Australia had the Beatles. The discoveries continued as their empires grew. New Zealand won the space race and landed on the moon. Australia topped it by landing on the sun. So New Zealand blew up Jupiter! It is time for two brave men to properly determine which country is the greatest in Hamish and Andy's Caravan of Courage - Australia vs New Zealand. ANDY: Nice kangaroo. HAMISH: Oh, cheers.

Good evening.Good evening, everybody. Welcome to our Caravan of Courage - Australia vs New Zealand. Tonight we're gonna show you the Australia bit. (WHISPERS)$$TRANSMIT No, say the really... Say the big thing. Oh, sorry, tonight is gonna be the thrilling conclusion to this epic piece of televisual double night history.Wow. Thank you, Andy. Well said. Well, you heard him, gang.

I don't think... A delicious animal that you can eat and share with the family. Or will it be like a lamb - also a sheep...Again, I wouldn't have chosen this way of putting it to...No, you can. And if you don't know what sheep you are, I made a diagram. What sheep are you?No, we're not doing diagrams. Unless the diagram looks like this. It's a bit more map-like, everybody. This one shows where we went last week - the complete trip across New Zealand. Ending at the top.

top.Yeah, that's right. Once we got to the top, we took the Phar Lap Memorial Sea Tunnel across to the top of Australia, which is a very long drive and you have to do a wee stop before you start. And then we got to the top and then finally, finally we were ready. It's a great tunnel, kids. Maybe do a project on it if you'd like to learn more.Don't do a project on it, kids. Just watch the television. Yeah, just watch TV. Never do projects, kids. Just watch TV.No... You may learn something. Just a little bit. Anyway, let's see how Australia went.

Australia went.Australia. A sunburnt country. A land of sweeping plains.Sometimes it does get a bit hot and you can chafe. Still good.
