Good evening and welcome to the program. I'm Lee Lin Chin. Later, Craig Foster will join me with all the day's sport, including: blowing a gale. Havoc at the Australian Open. But first, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has annulled the controversial decree that gave him power over the courts. But he's refused to meet the demands of the Opposition to scrap this week's referendum on the disputed draft constitution. It followed an ultimatum from the army for an end to the political crisis that exposed the divisions between nation's Islamists and secular Egyptians. Anti-Morsi protesters are not leaving Cairo's Tahrir Square. Sceptical about the motives of the president, they were unmoved by his latest move that played out on national television.

Protesters on the street say it changes nothing, as does the country's main opposition alliance. The announcement is very frustrating. It is a continuation of the stubborn attitude that the President has had since he issued the constitutional declaration on the 22nd of November. We believe that cancelling the declaration now is relatively meaningless.While the presidential decree has been rescinded all of the decisions, including the drafting of a new constitution without the input of moderate political parties, remain in place. For that reason key opposition figures decided to boycott a meeting earlier in the day with the president.

Analysts say the President has effectively outflanked his opponents by offering a key concession, as they sat on the sidelines. This is now the agreement of the president and the political and social forces in Egypt. Yes, by boycotting, the opposition did make a tactical error.Egypt's military leaders have spoken for the first time since the crisis began, calling for dialogue, saying the failure to do so will send the country into a dark tunnel. And that's a catastrophe it will not allow. The constitutional referendum is now likely to go ahead this weekend. It's rejection by voters would trigger fresh elections. A lot in the opposition worry about that because they would think if we have new elections for a new constituent assembly, guess who's going to dominate them too? The Muslim Brotherhood.That, say experts, would go a long way in nullifying future opposition to Mohammed Morsi. It is an image Israel wouldn't have been able to bear just a few weeks ago. The long-exiled boss of Hamas triumphantly flashing victory signs and addressing tens of thousands on the Gaza Strip. Buoyed by the rise of fellow Islamists in Egypt, Khaled Meshaal was delivering a 25th anniversary address for the movement on his first ever visit to the territory.

Four years ago there was a declaration of war against Gaza, but in this battle victory was declared by Cairo.Victory at any cost against Israel has preoccupied Khaled Meshaal. His next move will be closely watched as they shape the fate of another generation of Palestinians who have only ever known war with Israel. 15 years ago, Meshaal survived an assassination attempt. The US forced Israel to give them the antidote to a deadly poison his agents had squirted in his ear. Today, after the Hamas leader told the rally he would never recognise Israel, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's spokesman called it a hateful and extremist message that made every Israeli man, woman and child a legitimate target.

legitimate target.
I would ask the Palestinian President, Mr Abbas, if you see Hamas as a political partner, what does that say about your dedication to peace?Mr Regev said Hamas was making it clear: the Jewish state should be wiped off the map. Now to the latest on the royal hoax call. The Australian owners of a Sydney radio station have been meeting this afternoon after the outpouring of anger over the call that led to the death of a nurse from a London hospital. Hospital authorities have described the stunt as appalling after Jacintha Saldahna's body was found yesterday, just days after falling victim to that prank. British police say they may need to talk to the two Australian DJs who made the call. And the family is searching for answers. Their pain was visible at this home in India as they tried to make sense of the phone call, telling them that their loved, 46-year-old Jacintha Saldana was dead. The London nurse's body was discovered just days after falling victim to a prank heard around the world.

Tributes are growing outside the hospital where Saldanha took the call from Sydney DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian, pretending to be the Queen enquiring about the Duchess of Cambridge who was being treated here for morning sickness. While Greig and Christian gloated over their prank, the veteran nurse and mother of two apparently struggled with what she had done. Police say there were no signs of foul play. Brett Holmes is the General Secretary for the NSW Nurses and Midwives Association. He sent a letter to 2Day FM before learning of Saldahna's death, worried that the station never considered the risks over airing Saldahna's involvement with divulging confidential information. When you see there in terms of the massive media coverage this prank got, it is not hard to understand is that an enormous amount of pressure would be put on somebody. The hospital where Saldahna worked also sent 2Day FM a letter.

That letter prompted an emergency meeting late this afternoon, by the board of Southern Cross Austereo Media, which owns 2DAY FM. British police say they may need to talk with the DJs here and have contacted Australian authorities. Meanwhile, media regulators say they're looking at the station's action s to decide whether any rules were violated. Wendy Harmer, who worked as a morning DJ at 2DAY FM for more than a decade and took part in pranks,- says it's unlikely the station broke any rules, because those rules are too vague.

because those rules are too vague.
The code of practice does not address the etiquette of a prank call anywhere.Harmer says she can only imagine what Greig and Christian have been going through after learning of Saldahna's death. To come so early in a career, in a radio career it must be devastating for them.Saldahna's death has had quite an impact on many including her colleagues, who left a simple note which says so much.

Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti has announced he will step down, once parliament approves his government's latest austerity plan. Monti was put in charge of Italy's technocratic government last year, after his predecessor Silvio Berlusconi resigned in disgrace. But with the top job now up for grabs, Berlusconi says he wants another shot. Silvio Berlusconi has never been short of swagger. But a year after his reluctant resignation, the billionaire media baron has announced his reluctant return.

In October, it was a different story. I will not be running for candidate as Prime Minister.But now, Berlusconi is saying Italy has been looking for a credible leader. A man like Berlusconi in 1994, he added. In 2011, though, Berlusconi was forced to resign after losing the support needed to guide Italy through its worsening economic crisis. Since then he's been convicted of tax fraud and is currently on trial accused of paying for sex with an underage prostitute.He denies all charges. (APPLAUSE)Hours after Berlusconi's announcement, Italy's current Prime Minister Mario Monti confirmed he would also resign once next year's budget is approved in parliament. Berlusconi's PDL Party had withdrawn its support for Monti's technocrat government earlier this week by abstaining from two parliamentary votes. In any case, Monti's government was due to make way for elections in March or April. Berlusconi is expected to try and capitalise on the nation's anger towards Monti's austerity measures. Though experts say his chances of regaining the top job are slim. It's a sign much more as force, a sign of despair, because I think so far these elections for him are unwinnable.Recent polls put Berlusconi's party about 15 points behind. But with three terms in office, much of it plagued by scandal, he's come back from much worse. Now a quick look at some of the other stories making news around the world. Southern African nations, meeting in Tanzania, have pledged to provide 4,000 troops for a neutral force to be deployed in eastern Congo. Tanzania says the force will be conditional on member countries raising $100 million. There has been a lull in fighting in recent days after rebels withdrew from the city of Goma. Former South African President, Nelson Mandela, has been admitted to hospital in Pretoria for tests. But officials say the 94-year-old, who has rarely appeared in public since retirement eight years ago, is doing well and there is no cause for alarm. Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez has announced his cancer has returned and he'll have further surgery in Cuba. Chavez told Venezuelans before his re- election in October that he had been cured. Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro will govern if he becomes incapacitated. The UN has extended the Kyoto protocol after two weeks of intense negotiating in Doha. Fewer countries will be bound by emission cuts this time though, with Russia, Japan and New Zealand opting out. Environmentalists are disappointed arguing the agreement is too watered down.

is too watered down. After 36 hours of non-stop negotiating, finally a deal. But not without disappointment. If you ask me is this a fantastic step forward, no it's not. Obviously Australia would be much happier if the whole world immediately got on board.That didn't happen. Instead, Australia and the European Union led the way to an extended, but weakened plan, to combat global warming. It involves a large number of countries but certainly not the big emitters and the big emerging countries.Fewer countries signed up this time for binding emission cuts. Russia, Japan, Canada and New Zealand all pulled out. The US never ratified Kyoto, major polluters China and India don't have to comply, leaving the deal to cover countries who emit just 15% of the world's greenhouse gases. Shame on you! We condemn this text. I know some people are disappointed and want more. But we're moving as a world and it's important the world moves in the right direction and it did here in Doha.But, not quickly enough, according to environmentalists. We saw the world saunter along. But we need to be at a gallop to reduce emissions more quickly.

emissions more quickly.What is at stake here is selling down our children's and grandchildren's futures.A new treaty to bind all nations to reducing emissions is on the cards, but not until 2015. The worldwide use of landmines is on the decline. According to the International Campaign to Ban Landmines, Syria was the only government to use them this year. But the legacy of past wars lives on especially in South Sudan. Last year more than 200 people were killed or injured by landmines. This seven mines. This seven it year-old doss mac right leg was destroyed by a landmine. It detonated in his own house.What happened was his mother brought the s his mother brought the lead mine home with some mud. When she started cooking food on arted cooking food on the fire, the mine exploded and his sister, father and mother were all killed.South Sudan became independent to use ago. The work of removing mines stepped up. But clearing this contaminated country will take a long time.In a global scale, it is near the top. There are more than 700 dangerous areas. Many areas have not been surveyed it. It could be a bigger problem. Close to the capital, new mines are still being discovered. The presence of explosives and populated areas is enormously disruptive for communities. This building behind the was a school under construction when a tractor drove over a landmine and exploded. Since then, the area has been closed off. All the civilians have had to move away. Despite replicating, residents are still afraid.We can get -- allow our children to go that side. It is too dangerous.Landmines can stay active for can stay active for decades. With much of the country affected, this woman may not see it clear off land mines in her lifetime.

It's been taught in most schools across Australia for generations, but now the teaching of Holocaust history will be compulsory in secondary schools for the first time. The Board of Studies has been consulting history teachers about the move, while Jewish leaders have lobbied educators for years. Almost seven decades since the Nazis inflicted genocide on a generation of Jews, those atrocities will be a mandatory part of history classes across Australia. High school students will have to learn how the holocaust shaped the modern world and our nation. The Jewish Board of Deputies has welcomed the move after negotiating with the NSW Education Department for years. The Holocaust stands as the ultimate warning of mankind about where racial hatred can lead. Teaching it in our schools is therefore an imperative.The sole member of her family to survive Auschwitz, Olga Horak tells her story to visitors of the Jewish Museum. And believes future generations must know what happens when humanity turns on itself. This is not a fairytale and history cannot be denied.93-year-old Eddie Jaku also lived through Auschwitz, scarred for life by the experience. All my life I ask why?Still, he shares his painful stories with students and receives grateful letters in return. I teach the children to take out the word hate from their vocabulary. Hate is a disease.If you don't have a dialogue and you don't communicate you can't establish mutual understanding and this is the biggest danger.But some say the curriculum changes will have to be handled sensitively. Concerns have been raised with SBS that the move may not sit easy with all independent schools. But the Board of Studies says there was extensive consultation with history teachers and all were pleased with the outcome. The Holocaust will become a mandatory part of the national history curriculum from 2014. It could be curtains for West Australia's shark population if researchers have their way. That's not a cliche. It's a description of a million-dollar plan WA scientists are developing to use a curtain of bubbles from the ocean floor to stop sharks coming closer to beaches after a record number of fatal attacks. Western Australia has an unenviable reputation as the shark attack capital of the world. Five people died in the last 14 months from shark attacks on the coast. Several more were attacked, but survived. One of the proposed solutions for keeping beachgoers safe is an underwater net of bubbles. These sorts of technologies have been used to help direct fish, migrating fish and so on, keep them out of places they're not supposed to go. There's some anecdotal evidence they work for sharks. But that's what we want to test. We want to see how effective they are. Whether they are a viable alternative to use. And whether we can make any improvements to the technology to maximise their effectiveness.The State Government has awarded researchers from the University of Western Australia and Curtin University more than $900,000 to investigate shark mitigation strategies. The scientists are also looking at using strobe lights and even sub- aquatic sounds as deterrents. A lot of animals are repelled especially by low frequency sound. So we're looking to develop this as a potentially beach-based or area- based deterrent for sharks. But obviously have to check that it's safe to deploy within the marine environment and it's not going to have any negative effects on other wildlife too.Here at the University of Western Australia it's still very early days. And as you can see it's still very small scale. But eventually researchers are hoping they can combine the bubbles, the sounds and the flashing lights together, to create a shark deterrent that will protect beach-goers, but not harm other marine life. Shaun Collin is one of the world's foremost experts on shark sensory biology. He'll test the effectiveness of existing shark deterrents such as electronic shark shields. Generally it's very rare for any attacks to happen. The average is one a year. So there's something about our coastline, at least over the last ten months or so, that's either having the sharks coming in slightly closer or hanging around for longer.It will be two years before researchers complete real- world, large scale experiments. In the meantime, lifesavers and aerial patrols will try to keep beachgoers safe.

safe. He took the world by storm. Now Korean pop sensation Psy has created a storm of anger over anti- American lyrics he wrote years ago. Psy has apologised. But some Americans want him kicked off the bill for a Christmas concert that will be attended by President Obama.

Call it controversy 'Gangnam Style'. Long before is YouTube hit spatter eight dance craze, Psy performed a politically charged concert after a Korean missionary was killed in Iraq. He sang these lyrics.

If you were making up horrible things that orrible things that a pop star or would say debt could tar or would say debt could get them in trouble you would have a hard time coming up with something worse.Many fans are furious, saying he should not be allowed to attend the Christmas in Washington concert.

His YouTube video is His YouTube video is the most watched of all time. Social media have made his career and now it could break it. Even after ould break it. Even after Psy apologise, Twitter it still has these kinds of messages. ABC America's Muhammad Lila reporting. The White House says they have no control over who will perform at the concert and President Obama will attend. It's widely regarded as one of Australia's great political speeches. Tomorrow marks the 20th anniversary of Paul Keating's historic Redfern speech in Sydney, a serving Prime Minister for the first time acknowledging white responsibility for indigenous woes. But how significant was it? What did it achieve? And are the lives of indigenous Australians much better off, 20 years on? December 10th 1992. Paul Keating came to Redfern, a heartland of indigenous identity and pain.

It was we who did the dispossess ing. We took the traditional lands and smashed the traditional way of life. We brought the diseases and the alcohol. We committed the murders. We took the children from their mothers.Activist Sol Belair stood beside him and still remembers the reactions.All out here and all across there was just a sea of faces. The emotion, you can see.Today Eddie Mabo's daughter Gale is another savouring the words.We practised discrimination and exclusion.The speech came six months after the High Court's tumultuous decision on native title.I think it was presented to Australians as the necessary recognition of the facts of Australian had history and, if you like, a kind of call to arms to try to rectify that within a generation.Amid a dispute over authorship, Don Watson says he wrote it but it was Keating's speech.The closest thing to an apology any leader of the free world had made for Indigenous people.Without it, many say no apology from y say no apology from Kevin Rudd, 16 years later. There is symbolism and what John Howard calls the need for practical reconciliat need for practical reconciliation - the reason he gave for refusing to apologise to the stolen generation. But many say 20 years on the record of successive governments has been poor and Indigenous living standards have ving standards have hardly improved.We actually have to look at really dealing with the economic poverty that Indigenous people lived in. Education was a massive area. We're seeing the result of that even today, that education is still struggling.Then there is the 2007 Northern Territory intervention. The most dramatic example of practical reconciliation which Labor continued.What's being preached is at's being preached is that we are almost aliens, we're subhuman and we have not moved and we have not moved on in the 1920s.Though some heavyweight Indigenous leaders support the igenous leaders support the emergency response to alcohol and cy response to alcohol and child abuse. The red fern speech lives on in this reworked politicaln in this reworked political anthem. But ultimately Don Watson says the legacy disappoints.n says the legacy disappoints.It was meant to be a call to solving the practical business of Aboriginal dispossession and it didn't turn out to didn't turn out to be that.Still, the speech itself will always be remembered as the first attempt by a leader of the nation who publicly heal the scars of the past.Gerry Hartfield was just 21 when a jury convicted him of murdering a woman with a pick axe. But more than 30 years after an appeals court over turned his conviction he remain this is prison - a remarkable case of a a man in legal limbo for decades. Behind the r decades. Behind the walls of this Texas prison sits Gerry, a 56-year-old man caught in legal limbo for 30 years. The charges against him over turned long ago. The story starts back in 1977 when a jury in Texas convicted and ury in Texas convicted and sentenced him in - to death for a grizly crime, killing a woman with a pick ax negotiation a bus station. But three years later while he ee years later while he was on death row the conviction was reversed on appeal. The court said the state of Texas violated his constitutional rights by dismissing a woman from the jury pool because of her reservations about the death penalty.He was convicted and lty.He was convicted and sentenceed to death by the jury at that trial. But without it being a properly selected jury the conviction didn't stand. The Texas courts were unanimous about that. So they had the obligation then to retry him or free him. They have done neither one.The court ordered a new trial more than d a new trial more than 32 years ago, one that he never received, almost unheard of now. So how did this happen? The state wanted to change his usentence from death to life in prison instead to life in prison instead of holding a new trial which lding a new trial which was state law at the time. In 1983 the then Texas Governor Mark White issued a proclamation commuting his sentence to life in prison in an attempt to prevent another trial. Then for almost 25 years nothing happened. The state of Texas assumed the case was resolved. And Hartfeil derbgs never challenged in. - challengeed it. Then he called on the courts to retry him alled on the courts to retry him or let him go. At issue was the constitutional right of a speedy trial N response, state lawyers wrote that Hartfield has not shown Hartfield has not shown he was innocent of the crime for which he was convictsed and, accordingly, the court should find most grands for relief barred. The state continues handling the case in handling the case in the courts. Lgt

Prison authorities in Darwin are using traditional dance as part of a rehabilitation program. It's called One Mob, Different Country and it's aimed at raising self- esteem among prisoners.The NT's prison population is almost 80% Indigenous and in a system filled with hardened criminals, there are also plenty als, there are also plenty of inmates serving time for accumulated minor a- offences.

He became involved with the group after witnessing the change it made to prisoners. I saw it before prisoners. I saw it before I heard it. I loved it. It's great. Every dance is excitesing. They put so much effort into it it's not funny. This gives the community so much insight into the Aboriginal culture. The group performs all over the territory. It's a great incentive for dancers to address their past. They get to go outside the prison. They are right near on. They are right near the end of their time inside.Troy Barrett was a maximum security officer before joining the group as a supervisor.You go through stages in maximum where the result just doesn't come. Blokes are just buggering up all the time. No matter how hard you try to get them on track you find they let themselves down and people around them so you are back to square one pretty much every day. You come here, see blokes getting results, wanting to do things and go forward, helping themselves out. It's a completely different role. Authorities hope the self-esteem gained by the dancers will prevent them returning to this already overcrowdeded system.N ITV's Craig quarter main reporting.

MAN: Ancient Egypt.

With its pyramids,

its mummies

and its pharaohs.

No other civilisation has such
a powerful grip on our imagination.

But even after 200 years of digging,

some archaeologists believe
they've found

just 1% of this once great empire.

Beneath Egyptian sands
lie lost cities,

forgotten tombs,

even buried pyramids.

But now one archaeologist thinks
she holds the key

to unlock it all.

And she's turning to the heavens
for help.

She's using satellites that can see
beneath the surface of the earth.

This 21st-century technology
can help identify a lost city

not in decades but in moments.

WOMAN: Lo and behold,
the map of a whole city.

She's also on the trail
of possible palaces and pyramids,

towns and villages,

to create the most complete map
of ancient Egypt ever seen.

I'm Dallas Campbell,

a broadcaster with a passion
for science and technology.

This is my chance to join
this revolution in archaeology.

So that IS a pyramid?

WOMAN: And I'm Liz Bonnin,
a scientist and conservationist.

Together we'll help map
a lost civilisation,

guided by the world's greatest
Egyptologists.

I just could never have imagined

this is what your technology
would reveal.

We'll re-create Ancient Egypt
in all its magnificence.

It's an epic adventure that will
take us from the distant past...

This long lost city isn't
quite as lost as it used to be.

..through a turbulent present...

..to a fascinating future. We had no idea
of the extent of all of this.
