Returning to our top story and a wild brawl has broken out
at a soccer field in Sydney's west. It happened at 4:45 at Willmot. At least two men
have been taken to hospital. One of the men taken to hospital
has head injuries. Police have detained
a number of people at the scene. They'll be taken to Mount Druitt
police station for questioning. Charges are expected to be laid. Cooler conditions today brought welcome relief from the
scorching temperatures of yesterday.

It was another very hot
and muggy night, although early
this morning a fresh and gusty
sou-easterly change developed, cooling things down. Minimum temperatures were all between 3
and 5 degrees above average across much of the city
during the night. Penrith was
the hottest today with a top of 27.

Around the
capitals tomorrow - Brisbane can expect
a shower or storms. Some showers also for Melbourne,
Hobart and Adelaide. Perth should remain
fine and warm.

It'll stay cloudy tonight with the chance
of a light shower or two and a low of around 19 degrees. There could be a few showers again
tomorrow morning before a fine afternoon. Looking further ahead - those showers are likely
to hang around on Tuesday but the fine weather will return on Wednesday and Thursday. Things will start to heat up again on Friday with a possible morning shower next Sunday. That's Seven News for this Sunday. I'm Mark Ferguson. Stay with us now for 'Sunday Night'.

CHRIS BATH: Tonight...
One, two, three! ..what he did for his mates
and Australia is legendary. I wasn't gonna sit there and do
nothing and just watch my mates die. A true Australian hero. He turned the tide of that battle.
He's done something remarkable. The extraordinary act of bravery... G'day, Mike.
Ben. ..that won Ben Roberts-Smith
Australia's highest military award. Matthew was your mentor
and he was a great mate. I know what we're doing is actually stemming the flow
of terrorism into this country. I know that.

Plus, he was one of Hollywood's
biggest stars. G'day. Hi, Rahni. Now the simplest things
can be a struggle. You wouldn't change
that you got Parkinson's? No, I wouldn't. His frankest interview ever. We're looking under every rock
and up every tree. The secret life of Michael J. Fox.
I gotta change this now. Hello. I'm Chris Bath. Welcome to
the summer edition of Sunday Night. Also tonight - she trained others to save lives
then they saved hers.

I think I'd been travelling
for over 10 years on that road. Roger, Charlie. This is VNZ. We have a patient trapped
70km south of Oodnadatta. She didn't look good at all.
We thought she was deceased. Just keep very still
and don't move. I started to feel
that I might not even survive. Do you remember me?
I was in your first aid course. You told her what she'd told you?
Yeah. Tony is the man
with the golden arms. He's here to greet you.
The man with the golden arms. The spirit of the outback
is just amazing.

I'm blessed. That and Barry Gibb a little later. Our resolve to join the war
in Afghanistan has been tested many times but you're about to meet a man who has no doubt our soldiers
are serving a good and just cause. SAS corporal Ben Roberts-Smith
was awarded a Victoria Cross, our highest military award
for bravery. What he and his mates did
on one day in Afghanistan is extraordinary. Outgunned and outnumbered, Here's Mike Willesee.

'Big Ben' was once little, a Perth boy who, at 17,
joined the army.

Eight years later, Ben Roberts-Smith set his sights
on entering the SAS - the toughest, fittest and smartest
soldiers in the military.

9 out of every 10 who try
fail the brutal selection process. I think it comes down to desire. You have to want to do it because if there is
one ounce of doubt, you will definitely not succeed.

On 11, June 2010,
in northern Kandahar, Ben's unit was assigned
a high-priority mission - to capture or kill
a high-ranking Taliban leader.

They would be choppered in by the legendary
US 101st Airborne Division.

The Australians knew
their target was important. What they don't know was that he'd come to meet
10 other senior commanders who were protected by over 100 battle-hardened
and well armed militia. As we started to circle the target, we immediately started to take fire
from the high ground. (MACHINE GUN FIRE) Ben watched as 50m below a rocket-propelled grenade, or RPG, at the Black Hawk he was in.

The insurgent was able
to get the rocket away. The pilot was able to do
a minor evasive manoeuvre. The rocket, basically, went straight
underneath the air frame. So, that's probably
the most vulnerable I felt all day because you're not in control. The American pilots did
a pretty impressive job, showed a lot of courage. Ben and his unit, six men in all, leapt from their helicopter
into the battle. Already, two soldiers
had been wounded. We didn't realise
what we'd come up against and in the end,
it was, you know, basically four-to-one odds and we were certainly out-positioned
and outgunned. 70m from the enemy, Ben's troop was in a fig orchard being fired on
from a walled compound above. We were hit pretty hard. We were up against
more than one machine gun. It just got so heavy, we just couldn't physically get up
and fire and move so we just started to crawl. Despite being shot at from three
different machine gun positions, they crawled forward until they could go no further. Then Ben noticed a small structure
just outside the enemy compound that could provide cover
from the onslaught. I yelled to the guy on my right. I was in the middle
with a guy either side and we'd fought that way
all the way forward. I said, "I'm gonna
clear the building," so we got up,
he's put in some covering fire and I just made a dash
for about 15m. As you can understand, it was not what you would consider
an outhouse but a small, rundown little shed. Shed?
Yeah, shed.

I started to clear it
through the window, and as I did that, an RPG gunner had just started
to protrude his weapon system outside of the window and I was able to engage him
at point blank. Hey, mate, you say,
"You were able to engage him." That sort of takes the humanity
out of it. What happened? You saw this guy face to face? Yeah, I mean, it was very quick,
obviously. I've seen him standing there with
an RPG launcher on his shoulder. I'm looking through the window. As I've come into a point where I've clearly identified
that he was an armed insurgent, I engaged and killed him. As enemy fire
continued to pour down, Ben held up a grenade
as a signal to one of his unit. He knew what I wanted
so he sort of gave me the nod and was just screaming out
a 3-count, which basically meant I knew at 3, he was going to jump up and start
and put some covering fire in so I could get a grenade away, which he did in front of three machine guns
that were all firing and AK-47 fire. He exposed himself?
Yeah. This guy popped up
in front of the guns and dropped a clip
into the enemy position. While he did that, I jumped out
from behind the rubble. But Ben's grenade had little effect still pinned down
by the withering machine gun fire aimed directly at them. When you're pushing your face
into the dirt - which isn't doing anything,
it's not helping you in anyway but it makes you feel better - that's when you know
you're taking some rounds. So, they were taking a lot of fire.

Um, you know,
it just came down to the... ..the point that someone
had to do something, you had, you know... I wasn't going to sit there and do
nothing and just watch my mates die. I'd rather that be me than have to go home and face
their families if they died.

So I just ran at the wall.

In the face of two machine guns
firing and some AK-47s? Yeah.

It seemed like a good plan
at the time.

Got to the wall,
engaged the first machine gunner.

So, I engaged him, killed him...

..continued along the wall a couple
of metres, hit the next one. You killed him,
you took out two machine guns? Yep. Of course, Ben didn't know it then but this bravery, his courage,
would earn him the Victoria Cross.

You went very close to being killed
that day...quite a few times. As did everyone.

That's what we do. You know, that, er... ..you know, who dares wins.

In 2006, Sergeant Matthew Locke
was killed by a Taliban sniper
in Afghanistan, leaving behind his wife, Leigh,
and young son Keegan.

Matthew was Ben's friend and
second in command of their patrol. They won the medal for gallantry
together. Ben was about to go on leave
when he last saw his mate. You know, it was like it always is, boys having a laugh,
taking the piss out of each other. I just remember, like you always do, I just said "Don't do anything,
I wouldn't do." You know, it was a bit after laugh. You're always trying
to outdo each other. Um, and then I left,
I met up with my wife and we went to Thailand
for a holiday. Um, it was the last day,
10 days later, I'd just got back to Perth airport
and stepped off the plane and heard it on the car radio.

Um...

It hurt you.

Did it also motivate you?

Yeah. (CLEARS THROAT)

Take a sip.

Ben, I wasn't trying
to make you emotional but you're more
than just a professional soldier, you're a man and he was a great mate.

Sorry, mate.
No, no, it's cool, mate. It's really...it's you.

And it's important.

Yeah, good.

No amount of SAS training
prepares you for this. You're too wide. Can you narrow
yourself in a wee bit for me? But his toughest role
is the one he loves most... Wow!
Bubbles! Bubbles! ..as husband to Emma and father to twins
Eve and Elizabeth.

When you come back from operation,
you literally flick the switch. You go back,
within the space of two days, you're back at home,
sitting at the table, having dinner with your family. Then two weeks later,
you're deployed to a new theatre. I know what we're doing is actually stemming the flow
of terrorism in this country. I know that. Can you see a direct relationship between what you do
and making us safer? Certainly. Definitely. Thanks, Ben.
Pleasure. It was great mate. Thank you. Thanks, Mike. Corporal Ben Roberts-Smith VC
with Mike Willesee. Next, Michael J. Fox. The good times as a Hollywood great and the secret he kept
for seven years.

Wow. Get a grip of yourself.
It's all a dream. It's a charmed life.
It's just a charmed life. Hey. G'day.
Michael, how are you? I'm good. Thank you. You wouldn't change the fact
that you got Parkinson's? No, I wouldn't.

Michael J. Fox was one
of Hollywood's biggest stars who for seven years kept
one of its biggest secrets - at the height of his career, he was diagnosed
with Parkinson's disease. Michael has tackled
this cruel condition head-on and dedicated all his energy
to finding a cure. His interview with Rahni Sadler is
one of the frankest you'll ever see.

At the age of 29,
at the height of his fame, Michael J. Fox was diagnosed
with Parkinson's disease. G'day, Michael. How are you? G'day. Good, thank you. Michael is now 50. He rarely gives interviews and when he does,
he takes medication beforehand to steady the shaking. How are you feeling today?
You alright? He can never guarantee
when it will kick in. Prefer to go now? Yeah. I'm good.

When you have Parkinson's, you deal
with what we call on-offs — and when you are on, it's great
and I'm on right now. I don't care what it looks like
but it's comfortable. I can sit and be still, and I can speak coherently and I don't have cognitive issues that come with being interrupted
by tremor. But I can just as easily be off. In recent years Michael has embraced
his Parkinson's in TV roles.

Oh, Jesus Christ! What the hell?!

Did you shake that up on purpose? Parkinson's.

OK, McFly. Get a grip on yourself. It's all a dream.
Just a very intense dream.

In the '80s and '90s Michael
was living a Hollywood dream...

..starring in some of the biggest
movies and TV shows of the time - a teen wolf and a teen pin-up.

You really think you're hot stuff,
huh, Alex? Pretty hot, yeah. I'm from the future. I came here
in a time machine you invented. Now, I need your help
to get back to the year 1985. In 1985, Michael was in such
high demand he was juggling jobs - shooting 'Family Ties'
during the day and 'Back to the Future' at night. You were riding high. You were
at the height of your fame. You thought, basically, that you
were pretty damn good at that time. Charmed life.
It was just a charmed life. Alex P. Keaton,
sophomore hospitality committee. Congratulations. It was around this time that
Michael met actress Tracy Pollan on the set of 'Family Ties'.

She had a small part... I happen to like people like me. ..and he was the big star
with the out-of-control ego. We'd all gone separately for lunch
and came back from lunch and we were doing a scene and she walked in the door
of the scene, made an entrance
and I opened the door and she said her line to me
and I could smell garlic so I just said,
"Whoa, scampi for lunch, babe?" You were being a smart-arse.
I was being a smart-ass. And that's when she said,
"That was mean and rude and you're a complete
and total (BLEEP) asshole." And I was like, "Wow." No-one talked to me like that. And she was right and I fell in love. In 1988 they married. A year later they had
their first child, a boy called Sam. OK, Mr Kidwell. In 1991 he was shooting

Yeah, my pinky started to twitch. My hand would shake, and
I was developing these symptoms. I went to a neurologist and he
diagnosed me and I was 29 years old and I didn't...see it coming. You were in denial, weren't you? Yeah, I thought it was BS. There was
no way I could have Parkinson's. You said like with everything else
you were looking for an angle, you were looking for a way out. Yeah, I thought it was negotiable.

Call my agent - can you get me
out of this?

This can't happen to me. Who do I have to screw
to get off this picture? most patients are over 50. Michael's first response
was to drink heavily. I struggled with it and tried
to bury it in drink at first because I couldn't get my head
around it. You were heading in a bad direction. One day I just woke up on the couch,
sun beating on my face and my son crawling on me
and trying to wake me up and I looked up at Tracy and
she was not mad, she was not upset - she was just bored of it. And that was the scariest thing
in the world and I just knew -
"I gotta change this, now." No-one knows
what triggers Parkinson's but more than 80,000 Australians
have it. Neurons in the brain are damaged

For a long time, seven years,
Michael kept it secret. He continued to act, hiding the
symptoms for as long as he could. At home, his family was growing
but his condition was worsening. Michael and Tracy
have four children. If you're that loved
and you're that supported...

Are you gonna cry?

Michael's decision to go public
in 1998 He started a foundation bringing
together the world's best research and providing funding
for the most promising studies. In 12 years
it's raised $285 million. Room full of smart people. Michael has done more for
Parkinson's than any other patient. A couple of things. My meds were kicking in
about 10 minutes ago and I was feeling great
then the bottom dropped out. So do something about that,
will you? When you get famous
and you have some lucky breaks and all of a sudden
it's all about you. And you get a little bit older
and you have some experience where it can be difficult,
trying experiences like Parkinson's or whatever and you realise it's not all
about you and it's so liberating. There's a lot of pressure
to do something correctly. You want to talk about pressure? Try taking up golf in your 40s
with Parkinson's. Ahh... It's important to find a golfing
buddy with a sense of humour, like my friend Bill Murray. Once Michael J Fox sets a goal,
nothing gets in his way. The excitement. Work at this goal
next. Work at this - all good. More than anyone
I've ever played with.

Your goal is to put your foundation
out of business. Yeah, we're in business
to go out of business. Our bottom line is -
what can we do today? Who can we find today
who is going to get us closer to what we're trying to get done? You've got no doubt you're going to
find a cure for Parkinson's. Oh, yeah, we're gonna get it done. We're looking under every rock
and up every tree. We're in the future! The future, Marty? What do you mean?
How can we be in the future? I don't know how to tell you this,
but we're in a time machine. If you could go back in time,
really, you wouldn't change the fact
that you got Parkinson's, would you? No, I wouldn't. I actually wouldn't.
I mean, I wouldn't at all. Because this path I'm on is,
like I said, it's so amazing... Your nanna told you
you were destined for greatness. Yeah. Do you think maybe this
is what Nanna was referring to? It may have been. It may have been,
because it certainly... I would say I gave up my job
to do my life's work. This will be the best shot
of the day.

Wow! It WAS the best shot of the day.

Optimist.
Nice. Rahni Sadler there. Next, she taught them to save lives and never expected one day
they would save hers.

Charlie, this is VNZ.
She didn't look good at all. Just keep very still. The pain she was
going through was immense. We have a patient
trapped in a motor vehicle. I started to feel
that I might not even survive. The spirit of the outback
is just amazing. Something miraculous happened.

This Christmas, Kmart asked a bunch of us to
recommend our favourite gifts. Ooh, this will be great

Oh, there's so much more to love. Do you want irresistibly low

OK!

The fact that Julie Young is alive
is astonishing but the story of how she survived
is simply remarkable. Part of her job as a nurse
with the Royal Flying Doctor Service was to teach first aid
to people in the outback. But what she could never have known is that teaching others
would one day save her own life. Dr John D'Arcy reports.

OPERATOR: Roger Charlie,
this is VNZ. We have a patient trapped
in a motor vehicle 70km south of Oodnadatta.

TONY WILLIAMS: She didn't look good
at all. The pain she was going through
was immense. Most people would've threw it in. I started to feel
that I might not even survive. Critically injured,
her neck broken... Mary, is Julie responding to you? ..Julie Young was fading. She was becoming very cold.
Her body temperature was very low.

What makes this story of
outback survival truly remarkable... Just keep very still and don't move. ..are those who came to save her. I think something miraculous
happened, honestly.

The red dirt roads on the outskirts
of the Simpson Desert are long and lonely. Julie Young, a member of the
Royal Flying Doctors ground team, travelled them often — teaching first aid classes
where they were needed most. She was on her way
to teach another class. The day started like any other day.

I was travelling up to,
first of all, Coober Pedy and then onto Oodnadatta
to conduct a class.

I think I'd been travelling
for over 10 years on that road back and forwards.

Just out of the blue I started
to cross the road towards the right. ..I remember saying out loud,
"This vehicle is going too fast."

Her vehicle rolled several times.
Julie was trapped inside.

I think I waited for probably
half an hour or more and just suddenly
a vehicle noise was heard and this Aboriginal girl approached and put her hand into the window
and told me to be still. My heart was racing
when I went towards her 'cause I thought she had left us. But I was gonna feel her pulse
but she started talking to me and I was like, "Oh, you're right,
you're right, you know." Julia Lennon was planning to attend
Julie's first aid class.

She went to the nearest
cattle station to raise the alarm and found Tony Williams
and his son Patrick. We come out straight away
and Julie looked like...

Actually, we thought
she was deceased. Did you?
Yes. When Patrick... ..and Tony arrived,
they thought I'd... ..I'd died.

And I startled them
when I spoke to them. I touched her on the arm
and she raised her eyes and she spoke a few words.

I asked them to hold me
because I couldn't do it any longer. And I was frightened. We asked her, "What do you think's
wrong with you, Julie?" She said, "Don't move me."

Patrick, you'd been to
one of her first aid courses. Yeah, well, exactly a year before.

So you were doing exactly
what she told you to do.

Well, from my understanding, unless she was
in any further danger, we weren't meant to move her
out of the car, so yeah, we didn't. You'd taught Patrick first aid.
Yes. Tell me. And he...

When he was talking
about the vehicle, I instinctively asked them
if they'd turned the ignition off and he piped up and said, "Yes, we've disengaged
the battery as well," and I just thought that was great.

Then Tony took over the job
of keeping Julie from moving. He held her still in his arms
for hours. You have a name for Tony.
What do you call Tony? Tony? He's the man
with the golden arms. I saw him the other day. He said, "Gee, you look different" and I told him about the golden arms
and he broke down.

He became emotional at the scene
as well.

The outback's emergency rescue
services had swung into action.

A Royal Flying Doctors aircraft
was diverted..

..and by sundown, police and paramedics had arrived
at the accident site. The policemen from Oodnadatta
had arrived in their ambulance. Julie, do you remember me? And of course, the police aide,
which was Dean. I was in your first aid course, OK?

Just keep very still,
and don't move. Dean took a turn to hold me
and he came in very, very close and he's got
such a smiley beautiful face. Remember you taught us to
keep still in a car accident? Yep. She wanted to move but I said, "Look, just stay still.
Don't move." So you told her
what she'd told you. Yeah. I just hope I smiled. I tried to.

So he held me for the next...

..I don't know how long.

We gotta take this pillar
off here as well?

I actually...started
to think about my family...

..and...I...

..started to wonder if I'd come home
so that I could see my son.

You thought about your son? Because he wouldn't understand
If I didn't come home.

It was the first time the rescue
team had used the jaws of life on a car with a patient inside. Thanks, boys, great job. First time we ever done that. After six hours, Julie was freed...

..and later flown by the
Royal Flying Doctors to Adelaide for specialist care.

I spent a term
flying out of Broken Hill - seat-of-the-pants medicine, great people caring for others in
this vast outback, fabulous then - and it's the reason why Julie Young
is alive and well today.

Julie had crushed and fractured
numerous vertebrae. She broke her neck,
her collarbone and ribs. You could've been a quadriplegic. Exactly.
Or I might not have survived.

There was a chain of hands that helped her survive
that outback crash.

(APPLAUSE)

I'm here at last. Look who's here to greet you. The man with the golden arms! The station owner, Tony Williams... And this wonderful man. ..and Community Constable
Dean Walker who she'd trained in first aid. You helped me and smiled.
You said to me, "Don't you move." What a wonderful experience
to have the opportunity to go back and meet these people
who took part in my rescue.

The spirit of the outback
is just amazing...

..and I would ask all
of those people to ask themselves - do they know how special they are?

Julie's celebration continued
at a roadhouse nearby - another familiar face.

Julia Lennon -
the first to find the wreckage. It was very hard for you. I'm
probably here today because of you. If you hadn't stopped...what would
have happened? Thank you so much.

(APPLAUSE)

And Patrick, who she'd also trained
in first aid. Hello, Mum.

(CRIES)

And Julie's son, Adam. At her lowest point,
she was determined to see him again. (SOBS)

One life, so many unexpected heroes. Yeah, well, you've made me cry!
(LAUGHTER) I just think that I'm blessed.

Three brilliant brothers,
Barry, Robin and Maurice - together, the Bee Gees. Born in England,
but raised in Queensland, they remain one of the most
successful pop groups in history. When Robin died in May, the sole surviving Bee Gee and in this emotional interview
with Rahni Sadler, he finally comes to terms
with his loss. ('JIVE TALKIN' INTRODUCTION PLAYS) (LAUGHS)

Is this the Jive Talkin' Bridge? BARRY: Yes, I suppose this is it.

# Chk, chk, chk, chk, chk. # That's what set up the idea
for the song. That was the inspiration. (SINGS) # J-J-J-Jive talkin' # You're telling me lies # Jive talkin' # You wear a disguise... # I always said to Rob and Mo,
"You know, the dream came true. "Stop, sit down and enjoy it." C'mon!
('JIVE TALKIN' PLAYS) No matter how you look at it... (SONG CONTINUES) ..the Bee Gees' success
was colossal.

But for all the joy -
equal measures of pain. My greatest regret is that every brother I've lost was in a moment
when we were not getting on and so, I have to live with that.

I wanna take you back
because I think people don't realise that you weren't born
with silver spoons in your mouths. No.
You really were pretty poor. Well, yeah, that's the right word. We were from Manchester
and we had no fear. Looking for a better life, the Gibb family
became Ten Pound Poms, settling in Redcliffe,

behind the Beatles. Legendary promoter Robert Stigwood launched their first single
anonymously. Robert put it out in America
for radio but he didn't tell anybody
who it was. And I think the trick, for him, was to make everyone think
it was the Beatles. # And the lights all went down
in Massachusetts # And Massachusetts is one place
I have seen. #

I think your dad said to you
to always smile on stage when you were young. He would stand
at the back of the audience... "Tell Robin!" # Smile an everlasting smile # A smile can bring you
near to me

# Don't ever let me find you gone # 'Cause that would bring
a tear... # But Dad was very non-demonstrative.
He couldn't show his emotions. So, he never praised you?
No, no. He was...he would...
you'd see the look on his face and go, "That was good.
That was alright." And that helped to drive you on,
didn't it? Yeah, because you're probably
looking for acceptance all the time and if you get that too easily,
you don't work for it. In 1969, Robin left the band. But two years later, they reunited and by the mid '70s
had rediscovered their mojo. They moved to Miami
as disco erupted. # Now it's alright, it's OK # You may look the other way # We can try to understand # The 'New York Times' effect on man # Whether you're a brother
or whether you're a mother # You're staying alive
Staying alive... # And then the world really exploded
for you. Yeah. And we became...
I don't know, we were in a bubble. You're in it but you can't see it,
so you're in the eye of a storm.

What's that like, when people
are clambering over your cars, there's thousands of people
wherever you go? It's great, isn't it? I don't know.
It's never happened to me. # You should be dancing, yeah # You should be dancing, yeah. # ('TRAGEDY' PLAYS) Hold it.

It would be nice if we could find
a bigger sound for that solo. Make it rounder.
Start it off on keyboard. Alright.
(PLAYS KEYBOARD SOLO) Yeah! Just like that. Yeah.
Beautiful. OK, let's do it again -
second half of that chorus but bring that sound in, Yeah. OK. One, two, three, four.
# Tragedy. # # When the feelings gone
and you can't go on # It's tragedy # When the morning cries
and you don't know why # It's hard to bear # With no-one to love you # You're going nowhere. # You, of course, had the falsetto.
Yeah. Tell me about
discovering that falsetto. (IN FALSETTO) Well...
(LAUGHS) ..it's a long story. Um... # Nobody gets too much...# How do you do it? How do you...? Well, you change. (NORMAL VOICE) You go from that...
(FALSETTO) ..to that. And you start signing. (SINGS IN FALSETTO)

That scream led me to
doing whole songs like that, so... And then everyone got carried away
because it worked so well that Robin would say,
"No, sing this song, sing this song "because we are having smashes,
we are having hit records, you know. "We had six number-ones in a row
with that sound." and that's what made Robin tick. You have said that
you never want to feel success because then you'll stop trying. Yeah. Is that why you think
you've been able to keep your humility because... Stay on the ground,
don't believe any of it because everything passes,
no matter what, you know? And what have we witnessed
in the past 10 years? How everything really does pass.

# How deep is your love... # We loved it. That's why did it.
Boy, did we have some fun. And that's what I miss
more than anything else. I'm the last man standing.

I'm looking for the reason
why I'm still here. # You brighten up my day...#

RAHNI: On a drive to Miami Beach, Barry is thinking a lot
about the old days, about his good friend
Michael Jackson. BARRY: I had a great relationship
with Michael. We had some amazing moments. He would always say things like,
"Watch out." (IMITATES MICHAEL JACKSON)
"Watch out, Barry.

"They're trying to get my music." (NORMAL VOICE)
"It's alright, Michael." # How deep is your love? # Is your love
How deep is your love? # 'Cause we're living
in a world of fools... # The relationship with his brothers
was a deep and unbreakable bond. Nobody really ever knew
what the three of us felt or what the three of us
thought about each other. It was such a unifying thing - the three of us became,
like, one person. You know, we all had the same dream
and, you know - that's what I remember
more than anything else and that's what I miss
more than anything else.

Robin died in May. Maurice, or Mo, as Barry calls him,
died in 2003. # I just wanna be
your everything... # Andy,
who was 12 years younger than Barry and a successful solo artist, He had lived a lifestyle even knew about. So, what would you call it?
The LA lifestyle. Yeah.
You don't have to look too far. to Andy when the three of you,
to a large extent, avoided that...? We never avoided it. We all fell over at certain points.

It has been a bloody tough year
for you. It's actually been
a bloody tough decade, you know? Since, I guess, losing Mo,
it's 10 years. Now come on, who are you?
Which is which? You're twins, hey? I'm Robin.
Robin. I'm Maurice.
And Maurice. Now, you all sing together, hey?
That's right. And your brother Barry plays. Now come on up. Come on up here.
That's right. On up through there. (BOYS SING) # Dum, dum, da dum, dum # Da dum, dum, da da. # You can't watch it? It's too hard?
Too hard. Is it because it makes you sad
or because...? No, it just makes me emotional. Yeah. How special they were. Yeah.

Are you alright?
Yeah.

Are you feeling the loss of them
so dearly? Yeah, for a long time.

Mmm. The only way I can deal with it
is through music. When you see that,
do you remember those first...? Of course I do. Yeah. We loved it,
that's why we did it. That's why we did it, you know. We knew it sounded great, you know?
We just knew. And that was our path
and we - there was no other path. We loved the sound
of each other's voices and... Can we take a pause?
Yeah, sure, certainly. # Please help me
mend my broken heart # And let me live again. # My greatest regret
is that every brother I have lost was in a moment
when we were not getting on. And so, I had to live with that,
you know? And I'll spend my life
reflecting on that, is that we were all, you know... There were many times
we had conflicts but this was...it was just really... ..just distressing
that every time one of them passed, it was during a moment
when we weren't getting on. I see a lot of sides to life now
that I didn't see before and I don't know why
but I'm the last man standing. I'll never be able
to understand that because I'm the eldest. So don't try to understand it,
you know? Don't try to understand it,
just keep moving. That's Scarborough.
That's the house. Barry is returning to tour Australia
in February. He'll be sharing his music,
home movies and stories, including his colourful childhood
in Redcliffe. Right about here,
the three of us stood together and decided that we would
never break the law again. Really? Joining him in Miami is the Mayor of Moreton Bay region,
Allan Sutherland. My speech to them was we were either
gonna end up as criminals or we're gonna end up being famous - we have to decide now. Wow, that's a changing moment on the
Redcliffe jetty for the Bee Gees. It certainly was. And I remember having a pen knife
that I'd just nicked from Woolworths and I threw it in the water. Really? I never stole another thing
in my life. Next year in Redcliffe, a walkway will be named
in honour of the Bee Gees. A model of what's going
to be a lot larger. There'll also be
a life-sized statue. Wow. This must be a bit overwhelming. The whole day has been
a little overwhelming for me. Today was the first time
I'd actually accepted the fact that all my brothers are gone
and that was tough. I have to thank you for that
because that hasn't happened, that hadn't happened until today because it was totally unacceptable
to me, you know? That Robin has passed? That all of them are gone,
you know.

When you get up on the stage
in Australia, will your brothers be alongside you? They'll be onstage with me. Yeah. # And we don't say goodbye

We just didn't agree on everything
and that's the way life was but, boy, did we have some fun. My God. From here on, I've got the memories and I've been able to unload
a lot of those emotions today. I didn't know what would happen. I haven't done an interview
since I lost Rob, you know. Thank you so much, sweetheart.

Rahni Sadler with Barry Gibb. And you can find out more about
his February tour on our website, along with plenty of other
information on all our stories. And that's our show for tonight. I hope you enjoyed
the summer edition. Good night.

NZ's borders are constantly under
threat from drugs, illegal goods and incoming passengers bringing
plant pests and animal diseases that
could cripple our economy overnight. Only the men and women of the
Customs Service and MPI Biosecurity
stand in their way. They are NZ's border patrol. Tonight on Border Patrol, will a
smuggler slip through the net at
Auckland Airport? Looking for our target
coming off the air bridge. What is he packing?
And will they get their man? Literally fly by
the seat of your pants. A gambler with a criminal past
rolls the dice to enter NZ; Stop filming me. That's
what they do, don't they? and a foreigner causes
a kerfuffle with MPIs. Hello!

6At Auckland International Airport,
Operation Harvard is underway.

Months of liaison with international
intelligence have led to this point, and the net is now closing
on a drug trafficker. Customs is well-versed in targeting
drug mules in the war against
illegal narcotics. This morning the operation will
centre on identifying the main
target from Hong Kong. We have officers that'll be in the
pier. They'll be identifying and
surveilling that person down. They'll be observed right from
the plane all the way down to the
baggage hall. They are forming part
of a tour group. We'll just ascertain whether the
rest of the tour group have to be
seen by Customs or not. Uh, there's a lot of operations on
over the year. This will be one of
our biggest. The dogs will be in attention, and
we'll have all our resources able to
intercept this person today. The pressure is on. Chief Customs
Officer Paul briefs his team of
hand-picked officers. Contents out, X-ray bag, come back,
look at the contents, establish
reasonable cause. Yeah, so if you need anything, just
holler, and I will come running. Sweet. OK? Yep. Thanks, guys. It's not often that you're able to
put a plan in place and have the
time to actually do it. A lot of the time here at the
airport, you're sort of, um, 'Hey, this is gonna happen. Right.
Bang! Let's issue some quick orders
and get it sorted.' So you literally fly by
the seat of your pants.

Up in the observation room, the
object of everyone's attention is
just touching down on the runway, completely oblivious to the
reception that's waiting. Five minutes ago, the flight has
arrived at the gate. Officers are
now controlling. They're just undertaking, uh,
surveillance by way of camera. Uh, just looking for our target
coming off the air bridge, and then we'll coordinate with The game plan is basically to
identify the person, get them
into the search area and, um, hand them over to, um, our
Investigations unit, uh, to further
the investigation.

Last boy off, is it? Yeah. OK, looks like we've got our target.
He's just been identified on
the screen. To the trained eye, the man in
the yellow jacket is looking
very uncomfortable. He starts to sweat as he waits
in line for Passport Control. We just witnessed the target walk
straight through the Duty Free. Clearly, he is fixated on
getting to Passport Control, getting through that phase of
crossing an international border and, um, getting to, I guess,
his meter here in NZ. Um, he is displaying that now,
and he is acting quite urgently
to go through to Passport Control. He's also, um, being quite vigilant
of, like, cameras or what persons
may be observing him.

He's just gonna make is way down
into the baggage hall now. The man might think he's in the
clear, but in the arrivals hall, he's about to meet dog
handler Dan and Anzac.

Good evening. A wild brawl in Sydney's west
has left two people in hospital.
