by Ericsson Access Services. ANDREW O'KEEFE: This morning - police plead with drivers to be safe
on our roads as there's more carnage
across the country overnight with multiple fatalities. We have got the latest. ANGELA COX: Why were they targeted? Police set up a crime scene
at an elderly couples home after an arson attack overnight. PM set to confirm that negative
gearing reforms will be shelved. We'll have the low down
from Canberra. Oh no, surely not again. Booing controversy in the AFL as another Indigenous player
is booed during the match. The loophole allowing thousands
of rapid-fire guns into the country. Why we should be concerned. Is the beast a softy off-set? We go backstage
to grill the man we love to hate. And who said you have
to cut out fat to lose weight. The woman who eats 2 kilograms
of butter each week to stay thin. Mm-hm. Just wait to see
how good she looks. And it could just be
the feel-good story of the year - two larrikins, a phone
and a baby. The reunion that will make you laugh
this Sunday morning. You won't want to miss it.

Live from Brekky Central,
this is Weekend Sunrise with Angela Cox
and Andrew O'Keefe.

It really should be Angela Cox and Andrew O'Keefe. I've never been more proud to be a Queenslander. That story about the blokes and the phone, you're going to love it!We should point out that the baby was not involved in the consumption of the slab of beer! He was around there!Stay around for it.

Here's Talitha with the 7am news. A 26-year-old Melbourne man
is in a critical condition after his motorbike crashed
into another vehicle. For the details we go live
to Sunrise reporter Jessica Tancred. Jessica, police believe
he may have been speeding? Yes, good morning.

Yes, good morning. Police are currently looking into whether or not speed was a factor in the horror crash which took place in Melton South in Melbourne's west overnight. Police were called to the crash scene around 9 pm to discover a Ford station wagon had collided with a motorcycle. The rider, a 26-year-old male, was airlifted here to the Alfred with life-threatening injuries and he is listed as critical. Meantime, the 35-year-old driver and his passenger luckily escaped uninjured. Now, this accident does follow the tragic loss of a 4-year-old girl who died tragically yesterday when the vehicle she was travelling in clipped a tree and then smashed into another yesterday afternoon in Cardigan in the outskirts of Ballarat. Her father, the driver, a 24-year-old man, was taken to Ballarat Base Hospital and has yet to be interviewed by police. But her tragic death takes the road toll here in Victoria to 93 - that's up 11 from the same time last year. So police are pleading with the public to be extra careful on the roads, especially for the remainder of the long weekend. OK, thank you.

That's just one incident, it's been a horror long-weekend
on our national roads. For the breakdown we're joined by Sunrise
motoring expert John Cadogan. John, there were a number
of other accidents overnight? Perhaps the saddest

Perhaps the saddest was in NSW on the Mitchell highway. Three relatively young men in their late teens or early 20s and had dogs in the back and on a hunting trip. The car left the road and hit a tree. That's very sad. The 4-year-old girl as discussed. There was another crash last night in Sydney when a Renault Clio ran into a set of traffic lights and a parked car. So you would have to say that drivers are either not paying attention or they're falling victim to the terrible spate of wet weather we've had on the eastern sea board and I guess I've got to plead with everybody to put both hands on the wheel, pay attention and look as far down the road as possible. And maybe even leave that mobile phone in the handbag or the pocket because that is an incidious form of distraction that is unfortunately claiming an increasingly large number of lives. So hopefully not too many more for Anzac Day.Hopefully not.

An elderly husband and wife are the victims
of a frightening arson attack at their home
in Sydney's south-west. Sunrise reporter Sophie Hull
is there. Sophie, a fire was started
at their front door?

That's right, it's

That's right, it's hard to imagine what could possibly have motivated this attack. But a pretty shocking ordeal for the elderly couple to go through. It was about #:30 last night when the smoke alarm went off and the alarm was raised. Neighbouring came to see what was going on as well. Firefighters were on the scene very quickly and were able to extinguish the fire before it spread inside the house. It was a fire that was lit at the front door. The man and his 80-year-old wife were treated for shock and smoke inhalation, but they're otherwise OK. They've lived here for 64 years and have never had any trouble before and they're quite bewilders as to what possibly could have motivated this. Police are treating it as suspicious and they're looking for anyone who may have some information about this incident to come forward.

Three vehicles have been destroyed
and a building has been evacuated after a fire at a car park
in Sydney's south. Emergency services were called
to an apartment block on Dillion Street, Ramsgate
just after 4am. Witnesses alerted them after seeing smoke coming
from underneath the building. Firefighters put out the blaze, which also damaged part
of the building. 30 people were evacuated
and a crime scene has been set up. A man has been seriously injured
during a brawl in Sydney. The fight erupted at Potts Point. It's believed the man hit his head
on the footpath and was knocked unconscious. Paramedics treated him at the scene. He was then transported
to St Vincent's Hospital. Cuts to negative gearing are officially off
the Coalition's election agenda. For more, live to Seven News
political correspondent Tim Lester in Canberra.

Tim, the Prime Minister thinks negative gearing
is a reckless policy. Morning.

Morning. That would be the Government's pitch and we're likely to hear it time and again between now and the expected July 2 election. Mr Turnbull is expected to confirm that the Government will not make any changes to negative gearing as part of its tax policy. The details of which we expect to see in nine days' time as part of the Federal Budget. The advantage of this from the coalition's point of view - it gives them a very clear point of difference from Labor. Labor's policy is to change negative gearing from the middle of next year - that is to exclude investors from using older properties and only allow negative gearing on new properties. It says that that will encourage new property construction and perhaps keep costs down to the extent where those who can't afford to get into the market might do so. The problem for the Government as it attacks Labor's policy is what's left in the tax reform hamper. There's a danger that it will go off with a whimper, not a bang, in next week's Budget. So obviously the Government have made that decision that it can still mount a reasonable tax reform argument when it presents those details in nine days' time.OK, thank you.

A paratrooper is seriously injured after crash landing in front
of thousands of people at the Sydney Cricket Ground
yesterday. It happened during Anzac
commemorations at the AFL game between the Swans
and the West Coast Eagles. It's believed the 26-year-old man
lost control because of a freak gust of wind -
which interfered with the parachute. He hit the ground really hard
and he just stood still. So it was quite scary. He was knocked unconscious
when he slammed into the turf. He is now in hospital
where he is recovering. Terrorism fears in Turkey
have prompted authorities to ramp up security at Gallipoli ahead of Anzac commemorations
tomorrow. Seven News correspondent
Robert Ovadia is there. Rob, how are Australians
being protected?

, tremly well from what we hear and ramp-up is probably there and unpress departmented. Even compared to the centenary commemoration. Earlier, we spoke with the governor of the region who suggested that the security measures would be ten-fold on previous years. X-ray machines and check points very similar to airline security. People will not be able to carry bottles of more than 100 ml through to the venue. Even private security contractors will be excluded from the final sweep of the site at about midday today. That will be reserved just for the military. And the ports in the area as well for the month or so leading up to this have also been under strict control from the military police. As for the Australians that we've spoken with here, they are fairly relaxed about the threat of terrorism. They say otherwise they would not have come.Yeah, feel pretty safe over here.Came over here knowing that there's a threat but we're not concerned about any security issues.Because of terrorist attacks, tourists fear Gallipoli and they don't come. So it is a personal decision, I guess. The Government's specific advice to Australians travelling here is to reconsider your need to travel to Turkey. A girl's School Choir from Brisbane did decide not to do, but at the same time, a boy's choir has also come. And also various students have made their personal decisions as to whether to come here or not.

The world is remembering pop star
Prince - the only way he would have wanted -
with song and dance. Fans gathered on Hollywood's walk
of fame overnight before breaking
into a surprise flash mob. # No need to worry # No need to cry # I am you messiah
and you're the reason why. # Across America, purple balloons have been placed
outside his Paisley Park home while a dance party was held on the first avenue
of Prince's home town, Minneapolis. Lovely shots there. What about the

paratrooper? You were at the game yesterday?I was walking in and heard the sigh. He hit the ground hard and a lot of people obviously witnessed it and him coming in. But the gust of wind, it was very windy in first-half yesterday. He's broken his pelvis and other injuries.Yes. Hopefully he'll be alright. There he is!Oh, ow! Lucky to survive. And on the good side of things, the Swans won. All of the sport next with Simon including another game and another win for the Cowboys in the NRL. And more booing for an indigenous player in the AFL.

Plus, your Sunday weather forecast
coming up, live this morning from Melbourne.

We're gonna help and guide
and back some people in. But there'll come a point where
some players - you know what - we've gotta make a change
'cause it's just not getting done. North Melbourne remains
at the top of the ladder after a 38-point win
over the Gold Coast. The Western Bulldogs are right
behind them in second place after dismantling Brisbane
by 53 points. In NRL, the Cowboys maintained
their perfect home record with a 32-16 win over Parramatta. But the Eels are demanding
an explanation after Corey Norman was sin binned, allowing North Queensland to run
riot in what was a tight contest. I thought he was trying to compete
for the ball. Definitely a turning point
in the game - 14 points - I think we were up 16-14
at the time. Jordan Rapana scored a career-best
four tries as the Raiders thrashed
a hapless Wests Tigers 60-6 in last night's other game. The Tigers have now
lost six straight games. Coach Jason Taylor says
the fans deserve better. The Waratahs snapped a two-game
Super Rugby losing streak in emphatic style with a crushing 49-13 bonus point
win over the Western Force. Ill-discipline proved costly
for the struggling Reds, who were over-run in a 40-22 loss
to the Stormers in Cape Town. The Sunwolves got their first win
ever over the Jaguares in Tokyo while the competition-leading Chiefs
pipped the Hurricanes by one point. The Wanderers head into tonight's
A-League semifinal against the Roar with no injury concerns. It'll be the last time
the Wanderers play at Pirtek Stadium before it gets redeveloped. It's that European kind
of atmosphere that gets everyone
just super, super pumped. We've gotta use the home ground
to our advantage. You know we finished second
and we wanna make the most of that. The winner travels to Adelaide
for the decider. Manchester United has progressed
to the FA Cup final for the first time since 2007 after a last-gasp 2-1 win
over Everton. David de Gea brilliantly
denied Romelu Lukaku but couldn't stop his own team-mate
Chris Smalling. But Anthony Martial's
injury time winner sent United into
a record-equalling 19th Cup final. They'll face either Socceroo Mile
Jedinak's Crystal Palace or Watford.

We'll be

We'll be talking more about the booing episode yesterday at the SCG with Jetta. It wasn't good but I don't think that it is a big problem.Were there motivations do you think?If this happens outside of the SCG, then we've got a problem. It was racially motivated with Adam. I don't think that it was with Lewis. You've gone to another club, that's what happened. Oh, I see.First game back at the SCG.OK, I got you.

Now to JT and today's weather.

We have a very good and positive footy story for you this morning. We're just north of Melbourne here in the world's capital of sport, Melbourne. Let's go to the forecast first around the country.

Weekend Sunrise weather brought to
you by probiotic Inner Health Plus. Kept live and cool protected
in the fridge. Mostly fine across the country today
thanks to a high pressure cell. A few late showers in the west and scattered showers
around northern New South Wales.

We're at the Diamond Creek Club. We have some of the Creekers here, some of the young girls who play footy here. The AFL is really getting behind women's footy. It's already big. It's going to be even bigger next year and I'm going to tell you all about it this morning as we kick some goals, eat some sausages and have the BBQ cranking up and some girls arriving soon. It's all about the footy. Sounds good, in any other circumstance, that might not sound good!Oh, don't!

Soon for you this Sunday - he's running rings
around the youngsters. The 96-year-old who only took up
exercise 10 years ago. Why it's never too late
to make a change. And we're unleashing the beast - behind the scenes of The Chase
Australia. What really goes on backstage -
be worried, O'Keefe. And America's fear on the unknown as China starts
to flex its economic muscles. So whose side should we be on?
More on that after the break.

It's time to look at what's
making news around the world and joining us is Sunrise
foreign editor Dr Keith Suter. Good morning, Keith. There's concern out of the US about how China uses its economic
strength strategically.

SsSaying, forget about the naval build-up in the South China Sea. It's the economic, the geo economic situation that's really concerning. And that's the essence of the situation. The worry that a lot of commentators have now got is at that we've focused a lot on the South China Sea and the disputes over the islands and the Americans are, as President Obama said when he was in Australia, it's a pivot to Asia. But it's a military pivot. Meanwhile, as the Americans are focused so much on the military, the Chinese are going around and doing all of these trade deals.Can you explain to the viewers at home what we mean by "flexing the geoeconomic muscles".What the Chinese are doing is building up trade links by p investing in the world.But refusing to invest in countries that don't agree.That's right. So they're using economics as the muscle rather than military power. And increasingly in this world, it is the economics that makes the world go around, rather than the military power. So the Americans are looking at playing on the wrong pitch.Obviously the US have always been a strong ally of ours but China is in our backyard. Are we going to get caught in the middle of this?We are caught. It's the biggest challenge for any Australian Government is how to keep the Americans and the Chinese friendly. We're military aligned to one but economically aligned to the other. We have to keep those two together. The real challenge will be when we have to make a decision as to which side to support. At the moment, despite what the politicians may talk about with the special relationship, I think that it is the economic one that will work out for us so we will follow China. For example, we never criticised China over Tibet. You don't do that. So we already are influenced by Chinese economic muscle.Just quickly, Guantanamo Bay, President Obama is about to finish his term in office. He had promised that he would shut it down. How has it been so difficult for him?It's been a failure. There were 80 o when he entered the White House. There are 80 left. He's not been able to do it because of Republican opposition and the Americans really have kept this open at a time when he promised it he would close it. On the first day in office he promised to close it down.Will this be a flashpoint in the relationship between America and Cuba.Ted Cruz said we're never going to hand it back. Trump has said he's going to expand and go around and put even more there. And the British Government have said privately that this is just a recruiting ground for terrorists because the word gets out about how Americans torture people from Guantanamo Bay.Exactly. Thank you. Always good to talk to you. The Dominican Republic next and Haiti.

Still to come -
are we going soft on gun laws. The loophole allowing thousands
of rapid fire shotguns into the country. Should we be concerned?
That fiery debate soon. Two larrikins, a baby

Welcome back to Weekend Sunrise. Hope you're having a nice relaxing start to your Sunday.

It's time for the news,
with Talitha. Police are desperately urging
everyone to take care on our roads this long weekend. Several people
have already been killed in accidents across the country and a number of others
have been injured. For the breakdown we're joined by Sunrise
motoring expert John Cadogan. John, there were some
new incidents overnight?

A 4-year-old girl was killed after her car slammed into a tree in Ballarat and six people were killed in four separate crashes in NSW. Most tragically, perhaps, three men in NSW aged just 17, 21 and 23, were killed when their car collided with a tree after a hunting trip. A 26-year-old man from Burnside in Victoria suffered life-threatening injuries when his motorcycle crashed into a car overnight. And a 35-year-old woman crashed her Renault Clio into traffic lights and a parked car in Ermington in Sydney. Finally, a 17-year-old female was killed after an impact with a tree in Mittagong and her speedo was found locked at 180km/h. With the holiday weekend only at the halfway point, it's time, I think, for drivers to think twice about diligence and most importantly, managing distractions. You know, you definitely don't need to check the emails if you are driving a car.OK. Thank you.

Two people have been injured after a brawl outside
a Sydney McDonald's store. A 19-year old woman
and a 27-year-old man were injured in the fight which broke out in the car park
in Mascot just after 2:00 this morning. Both were treated by paramedics before being taken to Royal Prince
Alfred Hospital as a precaution. Police are reviewing
surveillance footage. An elderly couple is in shock
after an arson attack at a home in Sydney's south-west. The 90-year-old man
and his 80-year-old wife woke to their fire alarm as a blaze
burned near their front door. It's believed someone poured
accelerant on their doorstep and set it alight. Fire crews were called
and quickly put it out. The pair was treated by paramedics
for shock and smoke inhalation. Police have set up a crime scene
and are investigating the incident. Two men have been charged over the alleged sexual assault
of a 12-year-old on Sydney's northern beaches. Police believe the girl was
approached by a pair of men at Freshwater beach on Thursday. They then allegedly drove the girl
to Brookvale and both raped her. Two suspects - aged 22 and 25 -
were arrested yesterday. They've been refused bail
and will appear in court today. There's been a remarkable
breakthrough in the fight
against Alzheimer's disease. Patients involved in the trial of an
experimental drug called Anavex 2-73 have regained the ability
to play sport, music and even paint. Melbourne was selected
as the first city in the world to be involved in the trial. It's the first major development
in treating the disease in over two decades.

This next story brings new meaning to being caught
with your pants down. A midnight police pursuit through
downtown Los Angeles ended when the driver ran from her
vehicle and decided to strip naked. The topless 32-year-old
was soon arrested. We're told she was exercising
her "right to bare arms".

Well, you know, your mum always said to wear your best undies in case you ended up in an ambulance. A cop car!Getting rid of them. Well, that's right. Who wouldn't be embarrassed!OK, checking sport now.

All the AFL and NRL results
coming up shortly in Sports Talk but first to Super Rugby where Israel Folau became New South
Wales' all-time leading try scorer with 30, after crossing in the Waratahs'
49-13 bonus point rout of the Western Force. It snaps a two-game losing streak and helps keep their slim finals
hopes alive. Things started to come together and it showed that when we can hold
the ball and get good momentum, we can be a really excellent team. The Queensland Reds woes continue
after a 40-22 loss to the Stormers in Cape Town. The Reds led early
in the second half before ill-discipline allowed the
hosts to kick themselves to victory. The Wanderers head into tonight's
A-League semi-final against the Roar with no injury concerns. It'll be the last time
the Wanderers play at Pirtek Stadium before it gets redeveloped. It's that European kind
of atmosphere that gets everyone
just super, super pumped. We've gotta use the home ground
to our advantage. You know we finished second
and we wanna make the most of that. The winner travels to Adelaide
for the decider.

Now to JT and today's weather. Have the girls arrived yet?

Some of them have arrived.Merv Hughes with you!Scott, they're calling you Merv Hughes. We're going to chat about women's footy after the forecast.

Weekend Sunrise weather brought to
you by probiotic Inner Health Plus. Kept live and cool protected
in the fridge. Mostly fine across the country today
thanks to a high pressure cell. A few late showers in the west and scattered showers
around northern New South Wales. Brisbane - a sunny morning
with possible showers later. Looking ahead - showers heading well
into next week. 23 in Sydney today
with a few showers clearing. Fine weather is expected for Anzac
Day with showers later in the week. In Canberra, mostly sunny. The mercury rising next week
with fine weather ahead. Mostly fine in Melbourne. Several sunny and warm days ahead. A sunny 20 for Hobart today. Mostly fine weather on the horizon
with temperatures increasing. Adelaide, sunny and a top of 24. Sunny tomorrow before a few clouds
begin developing on Tuesday. Perth, the chance of showers
later in the afternoon. Showers forecast into the week ahead with the chance of a storm
on Tuesday. And Darwin, mostly sunny. Fine conditions will continue
into next week.

Scott, women's footy, you said last year, the numbers were booming. Numbers did boom in the juniors last year, absolutely. We found about a tripling of our numbers in juniors last year.Wow. So Toyota are a big sponsor of the AFL getting behind the AFL women's footy. Basically, they give you everything that you need to raise money and the money goes straight into the club?That's right. The Toyota Good For Footy raffle last year raised us $3,000 which was fantastic, a big boost to a small club like this.You're the president of a club but also the dad to daughters who play?I have a daughter who plays and a niece who plays.What do the mums and dads think about the girls getting out and playing full contact footy?The girls love it and the mums come to love it!Come to love it, alright! Get ago lot of girls over from netball? . Netball and basketball and those sports and they find that if they come to a football club, the family orientation of a football club and the amount of people on the ground really works. And being around the club is fantastic. Guy, we'll be back soon. I know we've got plenty on this morning.

We're in the business
of reporting news so when it comes to a good headline
we know one when we see one. The Northern Territory News
is renowned for their weird and wacky front
pages and it seems there's never a line
that can't or won't be crossed. One tweeter has compiled
some of the best NT front pages so I thought I would take you
through a few. This story was so newsworthy
it deserved to be on the front page. Local has world's loudest burp.

Then there's a story about
a transgender cat. Meet the NT's Cat-lyn Jenner.

A front page from earlier this year captured a horse going through
a McDonald's drive thru. The headline was 'Macca-be diva'. That's good.Very

That's good.Very clever!

What about the dangerous pooch
who had to be muzzled. Hannibal Licked'er was the title.

I don't know why the tiny

I don't know why the tiny little Dog would have to be muzzled. Animals of course feature front and centre like this breaking news! snake breaks rib at school. Keeping with the animal theme - standup paddle boarding classes had to be cancelled at Bicton Baths
in WA over the weekend after it was overtaken
with very hungry fish.

The Facebook post has had
more than 135,000 views.

It's a pretty incredible sight. I think they said that they were salmon.There you go, beautiful. I thought that you were very demur in the NT headlines there!I was just trying to keep it serious.You missed my favourite of all time - why I had a cracker in my clacker. And we're done!

Soon this morning - he might be 96
but that's not slowing him down. We're chatting exclusively
to the world's fittest senior. Later, it's a script Hollywood
would be proud of - how the honesty of two knock about
blokes will restore your faith in the Aussie spirit. And, in Sports Talk -
booing at another AFL game. All the latest with
our footy legends next.

Morning, all.
Time to talk sport now. Joining us from Melbourne
is Campbell Brown and from
the Sunshine Coast, Matty Adamson. Welcome back, guys. First, up winners and losers. In AFL North Melbourne, Geelong
and the Dogs big winners as well as Sydney in the afternoon. In the NRL - a Triple C day Canterbury -
the Cowboys and Canberra. Now Cam, first to you, and briefly - your take
on the booing of Lewis Jetta.

I think

I think that it was an ex-player going back to his former home ground for the thirst time and the Sydney Swans fans reminding them that he walked out on them last October and to suggest it was anything more than that is plain wrong.I think you're absolutely right. Very different to Adam Goodes. Now, the Adelaide Oval, it was a throw back to the 80s and I could almost see your old man there in the 70s with a scrap there at quarter time.Yes, everyone watching that but it backfired in a way for Port Adelaide. They were up by four goals at quarter time and that woke up the sleeping giant after that. Geelong piled on 15 goals to Port Adelaide's three and blew the game right apart. Dangerfield was brilliant. Koshie has an interesting week ahead of him. Now, North Melbourne remain unbeaten and looking good after the road trip to your old stomping ground?Yes, a ground that's caused some trouble in the past. They haven't beaten the Suns up there too often so they've remained undefeated and playing a great brand of football and just fly flying under the radar beautifully. There's not too many people especially here in Melbourne talking about them as Premiership chances, which is perfect for them I think.And a great top of the table clash next week with the Western Bulldogs on Friday night between the Roos. Now, Matty. The Eels really took it to the Cowboys last night for a while until the sin-binning and Brad Arthur like you demanding an explanation?It was a great fixture up there in North Queensland. The fans came out in mass numbers for the great clash but it was early in the game that they rattled their cage a little bit with the North Queensland Cowboys. You thought that they were the dominant team but in the 20th minute, it was disallowed and they went to the bunker there. They didn't find the right result there but it didn't matter. All of a sudden, they went down the other end and it was the combination of first into there for the try. And all of a sudden, it was the try and they led 14-0 at half-time. All of a sudden then the second-half came out. Two long-range tries. All of a sudden, got them back into the game. But the sending off or the sin-binning of Cory Norman with 15 to go just turned the whole game and three tries in the last ten minutes, the Cowboys were too classy and very poised in the way that they played their rugby league.Indeed, and The Tigerses pretty woeful in Canberra?Yeah, they were poor. It's a tough place to go, Canberra. But I think for JT, it's a tough part of your life when you're a coach and you've lost six on the trot. But get them back playing touch footy. You've got a lot of speed in Moses. And if you get the big forwards in the middle and running hard, inside shoulders playing nice and flat and get some fun back for the young guys. If they're not enjoying the footy, it makes it tough.Thank you. Ahead of us tonight on 7:00, a great game of football between Melbourne and Richmond at the MCG ahead of Anzac Day tomorrow. Thank you fellows, have a great week. Go the Roosters tomorrow v the Saints. Indeed!

Coming up on Weekend Sunrise. Behind the scenes of The Chase. The Beast on O'Keefe -
he doesn't hold back - this could get ugly.

And, the loophole allowing thousands
of rapid-fire guns in Australia and the politicians who support
their importation. That's next.

Next, they're calling it
the Alzheimer wonder drug after incredible results from
a world-first Australian trial. Our resident doctor
on how it's changing lives. That's next.

regular prices across the store. Aussie beef sausages. from $6 to $5. at Woolworths.

A new drug used to treat Alzheimer's
is changing lives for the better. Anavex 2-73
is being labelled a 'wonder drug' after helping patients regain skills
they'd lost. It's a major breakthrough
for a disease which affects hundreds of thousands
of Australians. Joining us on the couch is Weekend
Sunrise GP, Dr Ginni Mansberg. Good morning. Ginni, how significant is this?

It's looking really good but we're early in phase two trials. So the phase one, we got some really good safety data on it for as long as they've been going. But really talking about very small numbers so far. But it's looking good because what we've got so far for treating dementia is - we do have drugs but you've got to get in there early while it is in the mild to moderate stage and we don't look at huge amounts of benefit. Almost freezing time rather than reversing it. Because this seems, from what I had read, that people who used to be pianists and couldn't do it, they took the drug and all of a sudden could play piano again or paint again and laugh at their husband's jokes.That's not necessarily a sign of dementia or Alzheimer's not laughing at your husband's jokes! But that seems significant, going back in time rather than just stalling the problem?Yes, so I think that the next step is to roll it out into some really big trials, because at the moment, it is just in Melbourne. The whole world, they've just gone to Melbourne. So I think that they now need to start to look at different populations and in much bigger numbers and they need a placebo arm rather than just doing it all with the active drug. Atment moment, they have half of the active drug with the standard drugs and half the active on its own.Take us back to the principles. What do we know about what causes dementia and Alzheimer's and how does the drug operate on the brain?Dementia is like a big broad brush and you have to have memory impairment plus one other impairment. So you know, can't work out where to go. Your direction or your spacial awareness is off. There's physical impairments. You need to have one of the other impairments plus your memory plus they both need to be impacting on your life. There's the diagnosis and some tests to do. Some all dementia is caused by Alzheimer's. They're not the same thing. It's 70% of Alzheimer's. This drug is working on a particular receptor that's pumping that one up. It's helping to stop a really problematic protein that seems to build up in patients. Which causes a kind of plaque or something on the brain?Yes. And we've got quite a lot of experimental drugs trying to target that exact thing.Right. Terrific. So it is tremendously exciting.Oh, yes.And as you say, further tests required.Totally.At this early stage, you know, what you know about drug trialing, if it were to show real promise once you've done the placebos and control tests, how long would you expect before this is on the market?I'd say at least another ten years away, at least. But there are trials happening. The next trials are happening in Melbourne again so for Aussies who want to get on to the trials, they can look up and just Google for where the trials are happening.Is there any chance that you can make me play piano brilliantly if I never played before? StglProbably not, and it might not make me laugh at your jokes.That's more of a psychological therapy to undergo for that. Thank you very much. That's really exciting stuff. Fingers crossed.Definitely.

Coming up - a motorcyclist fights
for life in a Melbourne hospital after colliding with a car. We've got the details on the horrific accidents around the
country as the road toll escalates. Why were they targeted? A terrifying arson attack
on an elderly couple's house. We're there
as police set up a crime scene. And, negative
to negative gearing reforms. The PM set
to shelve the controversial policy. We'll cross to Canberra
for the latest.

If you like your apples from Tassie,
maple syrup from Canada and Australian-grown pork, from July 1,
the Australian Government is introducing new food labelling, making it clearer where your food comes from. Soon, you'll be better informed as you'll be able to see at a glance whether something is locally produced or imported. We all want more information
from our food labels. So, to make it clearer, if a food is grown, produced
or made in Australia, you'll see
the familiar kangaroo logo and a bar chart showing its
percentage of Australian ingredients. A food that's packed in Australia
will just show the bar chart and its Australian content. And imported foods will feature
their country of origin.

When Australia's food labels
are clearer, you'll see what you're getting.

This hour on Weekend Sunrise - we've got the very latest on
the carnage overnight on our roads as a motorist clings to life after
colliding with a car in Melbourne. Another Turnbull turn-back. The PM set to confirm dumping
of negative gearing reforms today. We've got the breakdown
from Canberra. Not all smiles - doctors say free
dental policy has holes in it. Who will actually be covered? Five shots in five seconds - the public outcry over a gun
that's being imported into Australia in its thousands. Backstage with The Beast.
Inside his big brain. Can he be beaten and what he really
thinks of our Andrew O'Keefe. Block your ears, Andrew. And it's gonna put a smile
on your face - we promise. The feel-good story of the year. Two blokes, a baby
and a slab of beer. Cheers to that story
coming up in 20 minutes.

Welcome back, you do not want to miss that story but we start this hour with the news of the day.

A motorcyclist in Melbourne
is fighting for life after his bike
crashed into another vehicle. For the details we go live
to Sunrise reporter Jessica Tancred. Jessica, do we know if speeding
was a factor in this accident?

Yes. Police have told me this morning

morning that they are investigating whether speed was a factor in the horror accident which took place in Melton South in Melbourne's west overnight. Police were called to the crash scene on Exit Road at nine pm to discover a Ford station wagon had collided with a motorbikele. The rider, a 26-year-old male, was airlifted here to the Alfred Hospital. He is listed as being critical. Meantime, the 35-year-old driver and his passenger luckily escaped uninjured, but of course, there wasn't the same fate for the 4-year-old girl who tragically died yesterday when the vehicle she was travelling in clipped a tree and then smashed into another. The driver, her father, a 24-year-old man, was taken to Ballarat Base Hospital where he remains this morning and is yet to be questioned by police, but Angela, her tragic death does take the road toll here in Victoria to 93. That's up 11 from the same time last year. So police are pleading with the public to be extra careful on the roads, especially as we have the last few days of the long weekend.Yes, it's a very important message. Thank you.

There have been so many tragedies
on our roads this long weekend. For the details we go live to Sunrise
motoring expert John Cadogan. John, there were a number
of new accidents overnight?

What are the major factors generally in road accidents? Absolutely. Just before midnight, a 35-year-old woman crashed her Renault Clio into traffic lights and a parked car on Victoria Road in Ermington in Sydney. She was taken to Westmead hospital with minor injuries. And elsewhere this weekend, a 4-year-old girl was killed after her car slammed into a tree in Ballarat. While six people were killed in four separate crashes in NSW. You know, tragically, three men in NSW, aged just 17, 21 and 23, were killed when their car collided with a tree after a hunting trip. And a woman aimed just 17 years old was killed after an impact with a tree in Mittagong. Her speedo was found locked at an I credible 180km/h. With the holiday long weekend only at the halfway point, police are out in force and they're pleading with drivers to make responsible choices on the road. Given the grim outcome so far, it's time for drivers to think twice about diligence and distraction and I think that they are really the big things that people don't consider. We've all heard the message about speed fatigue, alcohol and seatbelts. But people still fudge the rules and they think that they can getaway with it. If you take your eyes off the road to check those vital emails, it could be the worst weekend of your life.Yes, thank you very much, John. Hopefully things calm down on the roads a bit for the rest of the weekend. Now to Talitha with the rest
of the day's news. An elderly husband and wife are the victims
of a frightening arson attack at their home
in Sydney's south-west. Sunrise reporter Sophie Hull
is there. Sophie, a fire was started
at their front door?

That's right, they've described their absolute shock and how overwhelmed they felt when they realised that their front doorstep was on fire at about 7:30 last night.I was lying in bed looking at the football and I thought, jeez - I couldn't believe it.So the 91-year-old made it to the front doorstep and firefighters were also on the scene because neighbours had also raised the alarm. The couple have been here for 64 years and are known to everyone in the street. 80-year-old Margaret was also shocked and treated for smoke inhalation. Neighbours have said that they can't imagine what could possibly have motivated this ail tack. Police set up a crime scene here last night. They believe that some sort of ak sell rant was put on the aisle tem that was placed on the fire on their front doorstep and they're keen to hear from anyone who may have extra information as to how this attack may have possibly come about.Let's hope that police find them. Thank you.

There are fresh concerns
about drug use at music festivals after several medical emergencies. Two people have been hospitalised while attending the Midnight Mafia
event in Sydney, last night. It's believed both
of them took drugs. Police say 16 people were arrested
for drug possession at the concert. Meanwhile, two teenagers
have been hospitalised after attending
another music festival in the New South Wales
Hunter region. One is said to be in
a critical condition. A vehicle has been destroyed
and a building has been evacuated after a fire at a car park
in Sydney's south. Emergency services were called
to an apartment block on Dillion St, Ramsgate,
just after 4am. Witnesses alerted them after seeing smoke coming
from underneath the building. Firefighters put out the blaze, which also damaged part
of the building. 30 people were evacuated
and a crime scene has been set up. The Coalition has dumped plans
to re-design negative gearing. For more, we're Live to Seven News
political correspondent Tim Lester in Canberra. Tim, the Prime Minister
is about to rule our any changes?

That's right. Perhaps he, the Treasurer or maybe

Treasurer or maybe both, will confirm this today. His office has already indicated to News Corp papers that the Government will not touch negative gearing as part of the tax policy. The details of which we expect to see incorporated in the Federal Budget due for release in nine days' time. Government back benchers won't mind this at all. It gives them a clear point of difference in campaigning against Labor candidates for the July two election. Labor plans to remove negative gearing for all but new properties from mid-next year. The idea - to stir new home construction and make existing homes more affordable for those who haven't been able to get into the property market so far. The Government argues that that is dangerous and could drive the value of existing homes down quite significantly. Problem for the Government in all of this, though, is what is left in its tax reform package? Perhaps changes to superannuation, but GST already ruled out. Now negative gearing. Some voters may judge the Government badly for lack of policies in that tax reform package. Alright, thank you.

Terrorism fears in Turkey have prompted authorities
to ramp up security at Gallipoli ahead of Anzac commemorations
tomorrow. Seven News correspondent
Robert Ovadia is there. Rob, how are Australians
being protected?

Well, it sounds like the Turkish authorities are protecting Australians very, very well here with unprecedented security. X-ray machines have been installed. There will be security check points manned by soldiers. Concrete barriers are in force as well. Guards and military will even have a specific map of where every single car is supposed to be parked and the slightest car out of place will be deemed suspicious. This is a very slick and professional operation from what we're told and up to ten times stronger than previous years. But the Aussies we've spoken to here have said they're not too concerned.Yeah, feel pretty safe over here.Came over here knowing that there's a threat but we're not concerned about any safety issues here. Because of terrorist attack, tourists fear going to Gallipoli. They don't come. Now, there's no doubt that numbers of Australians here are well down on previous years. Publicly, authorities will suggest that that is because attention has moved across to the western front, but privately, I think that people do concede that there are genuine security fears here.Thank you, look forward to seeing the coverage of the service tomorrow on Sunrise. It is time for sport now.

Port Adelaide coach Ken Hinkley
could swing the axe on some of his big-name players after a disappointing 48-point loss
to Geelong at home. A massive brawl erupted
at quarter time when Patty Dangerfield was hit
after the siren. It only kicked the Cats into gear
in a second quarter blitz - Dangerfield bagged 29 touches
while Daniel Menzel kicked three. We're gonna help and guide
and back some people in. But there'll come a point where
some players - you know what - we've gotta make a change
'cause it's just not getting done. North Melbourne kept a clean sheet
5 and 0 to stay top of the ladder after a 38-point win
over the Gold Coast. The Western Bulldogs are right
behind them in second place after dismantling Brisbane
by 53 points. In NRL, the Cowboys maintained
their perfect home record with a 32-16 win over Parramatta. But the Eels are demanding
an explanation after Corey Norman was sin-binned, allowing North Queensland to run
riot in what was a tight contest. I thought he was trying to compete
for the ball. Definitely a turning point
in the game - 14 points - I think we were up 16-14
at the time. Jordan Rapana scored
a career-best four tries as the Raiders thrashed
a hapless Wests Tigers 60-6 in last night's other game. The Tigers have now
lost six straight games. Coach Jason Taylor says
the fans deserve better. The Waratahs snapped a 2-game
Super Rugby losing streak in emphatic style with a crushing 49-13 bonus point
win over the Western Force. Ill-discipline proved costly
for the struggling Reds, who were over-run in a 40-22 loss
to the Stormers in Cape Town. The Sunwolves got their first win
ever over the Jaguares in Tokyo while the competition-leading Chiefs
pipped the Hurricanes by one point.

Manchester United has progressed
to the FA Cup final for the first time since 2007 after a last-gasp 2-1 win
over Everton. David de Gea brilliantly denied
Romelu Lukaku but couldn't stop his own team-mate
Chris Smalling. But Anthony Martial's injury time
winner sent United into a record-equalling
19th Cup final. They'll face either Socceroo Mile
Jedinak's Crystal Palace or Watford.

Melbourne and Richmond tonight at the MCG as well. For everyone, check your guides around the country. And I do agree with what Dave said - why was Lewis Jetta booed? Because he used to play for the Swans. End of story slm

Now to JT and today's weather.

We're all about positive footy and we're with the Diamond Creek Women's Footy this morning. They're playing at 10:00 and they're smashing sausage and egg sandwiches off the BBQ. I don't know whether it's the breakfast of champions but they're going alright so it must be working. We have Scott, the president here, and I want to say thank you to Pete. On the iPad, giving me a hand and holding the weather for me. Thank you very much and I'll take that and a hand shake. Let's go to the weather forecast now.

Weekend Sunrise weather brought to
you by probiotic Inner Health Plus. Kept live and cool protected
in the fridge.

Girls, just quickly, where am I going to go? Where's Sarah? We were chatting before. Maybe not Sarah. What's your name?Emma.So to girls who play netball, what would you say to them about playing footy? It's a good sport to play because it's good to play with friends and it's just a really fun sport.Do you get hurt?Sometimes. But ths not that bad. That's part of it. And just very quickly, I'm going to run over to the back. This is Niamh in the under-16s. Just stand up straight. And you know that I am 6'5"! So... Well, give or take. Is your birthday there, 16 years old. Are you the tallest in the league? I think so, probably, yeah. Premiers last year in under-15s and going strong this year. See you back here at Diamond Creek very soon. Time to discuss
what's making news this morning. Fairfax reports that up to half
of all children have been scared by something they've seen
on the news, leading to anxiety and phobias
that can last into adulthood. Joining us in studio are
Prue MacSween and Rebecca Huntley. Good morning to you both. The article says that 8 out of 10
children watch the news and that half of all young adults
can recall a specific story that frightened them as a child. Should we be limiting
what news our kids see?

Well, you need to be age appropriate. I don't sit down with my 5-year-old and watch Game of Thrones in the same way that I wouldn't watch something as gory or confronting. Look, we need to provide context for news. So age appropriate. And when we do introduce them to stuff. Because let's face it - forget about television news, think about what's happening on the iPad and the access. So we have to have conversations with them and provide context and you know, I think that that is a big part of it. Have a conversation. There is some stuff on the news that we want them to engage with. And fear is a natural response to seeing something terrifying, so it is about having that conversation.As we know, with most things with kids, they will inquire to the extent that they understand and it is the parent's duty to provide the context around that and to explain to them as much as can be explained what's going on here and to explain to them that for example, while two people got stabbed last night, 24 million people didn't. You know that kind of thing.But it starts really when you're reading fairytales to kids at night. There are some scary things in that, but you put it into context. The sad thing is that so many parents aren't parenting any more. You know, the TV becomes a babysitter for a lot of people. They probably wouldn't necessarily be switching on the news unsupervised, but we do need to explain and empower them. You know, I think that # and 8-year-olds are ar scared when you see planes flying into buildings and war atrocities. You're all scared and anxious but you need to make sure that the child knows that this is not something that goes on. But at the same time, we can't cottonwool them. We have to empower them. There was a kid of 12 who went in a car with two blokes and got raped yesterday. That kid should know that you don't get into cars with strangers. What has happened in her upbringing? And I'm not... Perhaps nothing. I don't know what happened. I shouldn't say that. But the point is that we need to empower our kids so that they're aware. There are some bad people and there are some dodgy and scary things in the world.But there are ways to potentially...Moving on to something slightly... Oh, sorry. We're not moving on yet.I think that this is a real learning opportunity to discuss things with your kids that wouldn't naturally come up around the dinner table. And also makes you realise that you don't no everything that you think that you know. Prue, I think that Australian parents are doing very well. Parents are parenting.Do you?They talk about this a lot. And in fact, the real problem is not that we allow the kids to run around and do whatever we want - with we spend too much time on them, focused on them and structured activity.Do you reckon? We could have another debate about that. We've got to be careful about saying that Australian parents aren't parenting.I feel like that that is a consistent theme. OK, now moving on to an article in today's Sunday Star featured My Kitchen Rules star Colin Fassnidge who talks about the pressures of being a celebrity chef including how he can no longer do something wrong, like shouting at his staff and bullying without becoming front page news. And he also said yelling at his customers. What is the fascination behind celebrity chefs? Let me at this. First of all, don't let your daughter marry a chef!Oh, yeah.I think that that is sensible!Can I just say that the chef might be a woman. And in fact, one of the biggest problems with the industry is that it is very unfamily friendly and there is a lack of female chefs. There are some fantastic female chefs and Kylie Kwong might be there.And your daughter may have their own opinions about who to marry.I think what's interesting is that I've written a researched a lot about celebrity chefs cooking imI'm a big fan of most food media if it makes people cook more. I have no sympathy for a man who can't yell at his staff at any more. But I think that the reason why we love... I think that part of the reason why we love celebrity chefs is that we love food, we love cooking as being a real change in the way that Australians eat, so that's fantastic.I think that most chefs are temperamental. You know, they scream and yell. That's part of the creative genius.And also the pressure in the kitchen.I wouldn't mind him yelling at me. He's attractive. Particularly when he brought in the breakfast tray in the morning.Wake up - here's brekkie!Coffee, tea or me!Oh!So I think that good old Colin, let him scream and shout. And you know, food is nurturing and it is beautiful. You know, they're real people. But I think that to have that creative genius, you need to be a screamer.That's absolute rubbish.I don't think so. If you go to most restaurants...If you go to most restaurants, it is chaos and you have to have rules. The more that you yell at people and make people stressed, the worse it is.But he did say in the article...You can run a complex kitchen without screaming.I was going to say in his defence that he has softened a lot and realised that you can yell as much as you want and then end up with no staff and then he has worked it out.But in saying that, if you are wanting to be a chef because you think that it is all about cook book launches and hanging out with Jamie Oliver, ten minutes in a domestic kitchen will show you all of the disillusions and one of the great opportunities for Australia and we've seen it is in a food destination for foreign tourists. We have fantastic restaurants and we want to make sure that as many people, men, women get into that profession and have a good time there.And we have spunky chefs. What do you mean by spumky!Thank you ladies.You just love a man with a dimple.I love any kind of man like that.Irish - dimple!

Lots more to come this Sunday -
eating fat to get slim.. The woman who says the more butter
she ate, the skinnier she became. That's soon. He's the world's fittest senior. We'll introduce you
to the 96-year-old running rings around
the younger generations. But next, we guarantee, it
will put as big smile on your face. Two larrikins, a baby
and a slab of beer. How the Aussie spirit and a tinny
will brighten up your day. That's right after the break.

Dearne Cowling. for over 20 years. So good! to better animal welfare. Curtis, I'm happy. Corn, wheat, barley. So good. All their pork is sow stall free and why you'll see Coles fresh pork and in my recipes. They're just full of flavour. Coles fresh pork belly roast just $14 a kilo. ALL: Thanks, Dearne! why Coles fresh pork rules.

Now for a story starring
beards, beers and a baby. Two Gold Coast larrikins found
a mobile phone earlier this week, but before returning it they decided
to record a special message on it. The father who owned the phone
was so grateful to get it back he posted their hilarious video
online to try and track them down. It's since gone viral with hundreds
of thousand of likes. Take a look. So, pretty funny story. Yesterday, I was at Burleigh
Headland on the Gold Coast and I left my mobile phone, license,
bank card there. And when I went back,
it wasn't there and I tried calling the number
and there was no answer. So I started to freak out. Mainly because, um, there was
footage of this little guy, part of his birth, on that phone. And I didn't have a back-up of it.
So I started to freak out. Long story short,
I...got given my phone back. Someone handed it in
and it got back to me but I never got to meet or thank
the people that did it. And I was just so stoked
and it's so valuable to me. Until I just found this video.

Michael? MAN: Yeah, Michael. What's going on, Michael?!
G'day, Michael! Yeeee! Michael, you sicko! What's going on, mate!
Cheers for the free boys, brother! We're gonna get so (BLEEP!) faced. No, mate. We're trying to find you. You're not gonna reply
'cause we've got your phone so... We tried calling you, then we
realised that we've got your phone. Yeah. (BLEEP!). But we'll have
a beer for you, mate. And we'll get it back to you
in the morning. If you don't call, we'll give it
to... We've got your license, we'll go to 47 Lemur Lane,
or whatever it is. Cheers for the free beers, hey.
You! Funny. Funny (BLEEP!). Um, yeah, so now
that I've got a face, I'd love to share this video around
and try to track these guys down, 'cause stoked that my little buddy has already got some great
role models in his life - these two dudes
doing the right thing. (CHOIR MUSIC PLAYS) Yeah, me and him, well, it was his
idea, Willem's idea to ah... (GURGLES) Yep, buy them a carton of beer. So if we can find them,
that would be awesome. So please share this video and
hopefully they get to act in it. Joining us now live from the Gold
Coast is phone owner Michael Martin and baby Willem. Welcome. Michael, when you got your phone
back and saw the video, what were you thinking?

Could almost They're not the kinds of angels that most people would think of when they think of the pearly gates!Yeah, yeah. I just... Well, they did the right thing by me so they were looking after me and they had my back.Terrific.Can you just tell us what you were thinking when you got your phone back and you were flicking through to see what photos were there. And you find this video. What did you make of it?I lost it. I literally just... My partner and I were looking at it and I thought - what is this? And we just cracked up latch laughing. And then after that, I just went - this is a viral video. This is hilarious. Because we laughed so hard so I'm thinking, everyone else is going to find it funny.It's very Queensland.I'm like, is that at Burleigh hill. I feel like I know where it is!So you found the guys eventually, right?Yeah, we met up yesterday maybe. Two days ago.And how did that go?That was funny, yeah. S they were just as funny as they were in the video. I don't know why... They should be here now but I think that Paul had too many beers last night. So he was supposed to be here with me.Why does that not surprise us!Have you checked your statements to see how much beer went down at the local pub there?So, did you give them a case of beer for handing in your phone?Yeah, I wanted to give them a palate of beer for doing something funny, but they got a Carlton each. I love the fact that Willem is accompanying you in every single part of this journey. It is a little bit like The Hangover.You look like you're from The Hangover, mate.My beard isn't as good. It's really patchy.Now, obviously everyone when they lose their phone feel like they've lost a limb. But for you, it was really special because you had some very special images on there, didn't you?Yes, the footage of Willem and when he first came into this world. I do video work so I know to back things up, but I forgot. I had baby brain! Yeah, easy to forget important things.What did you think of the guys? Did you think that you were going to be mates? Did you get along?I'll keep a distance with Willem from them! No, they're lovely. They're really good dudes. Solid. Proper blokes. So yeah, I don't know, maybe. You know, we're talking about doing some other stuff.Yeah, good.In the video, saying about just the great role models and I think this morning it sort of restores your faith in humanity that these stubbie drinking guys on the side of the hill return your phone.Yeah, it was awesome.Good one, Michael. Listen, thank you for joining us this morning. Glad you got the baby pics back and that we Willem has been so well behaved. He's poke Dees up.He's waking up.Shall we talk to him! No, we don't have time now!

It's time for the news,
with Talitha. Road accidents have claimed
the lives of several people across the country
this long weekend. A number of others were also injured
overnight. For the breakdown we're joined by Sunrise
motoring expert John Cadogan. John, one motorcyclist is in
a critical condition this morning? That's right. About nine pm last

night, a 26-year-old man from Burnside in Victoria was left fight fighting for his life after his motorcycle crashed into a car. He remains in a critical condition in hospital and police investigations are ongoing. In Sydney, just before midnight, a 35-year-old woman crashed her Renault Clio into traffic lights and a parked car on Victoria Road in Ermington. She was taken to Westmead Hospital thankfully with minor injuries. In Ballarat, a girl aged just four was killed after her car slammed into a tree. In total, six people were killed in four separate crashes across NSW. Tragically, three young men were killed when their car collided with a tree after a hunting trip. A woman just 17 years old died after an impact with a tree in Mittagong and police found her speedo locked at an incredible 180km/h. You have to wonder about the choices some people make. Police are out in force this weekend and pleading with drivers to make responsible choices behind the wheel.OK, thank you.

An elderly couple is in shock after an arson attack at a home
in Sydney's south-west. The 90-year-old man
and his 80-year-old wife woke to their fire alarm as a blaze burned
near their front door. It's believed someone poured
accelerant on their doorstep and set it alight. We just can't figure it out -
who would do it? We have no idea who would do
it to us. because we've done no wrong,
anywhere. Fire crews were called
and quickly put it out. The pair was treated by paramedics
for shock and smoke inhalation. Police have set up a crime scene
and are investigating the incident. A paratrooper is seriously injured after crash landing in front
of thousands of people at the Sydney Cricket Ground
yesterday. It happened during
Anzac commemorations at the AFL game between the Swans
and the West Coast Eagles. It's believed the 26-year-old man
lost control because of a freak gust of wind
which interfered with the parachute. He hit the ground really hard
and he just stood still. So it was quite scary. He was knocked unconscious
when he slammed into the turf. He is now in hospital
where he is recovering. Extraordinary vision of a Queensland
river being set alight has been posted on social media. NSW State MP Jeremy Buckingham
filmed himself leaning out of a boat and putting
a lighter to the water - causing it to catch fire. The footage is said to have been
taken on the Condamine River, close to a coal seam
gas fracking site. It's had more than 1.8 million views
online. Researchers have made a breakthrough in the fight
against Alzheimer's disease. Sufferers from Melbourne have taken
part in a world-first drug trial which is combatting memory loss. Anavex 2-73 has allowed sufferers to regain the ability to play sport,

in treating the disease in over two decades. Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel
has led a European Union delegation to a migrant camp
on the Turkish-Syrian border. Mrs Merkel visited the camp which
houses more than 5,000 refugees. The group opened an education centre
for Syrian youth partly funded by the UN. Close to a million migrants have
fled from the Middle East, since last year.

This weekend marks 400 years since Shakespeare
is believed to have passed away. A parade - celebrating the life
of the playwright - has been held in his home town
of Stratford Upon-Avon. Prince Charles also paid tribute - laying a wreath at Shakespeare's
grave site at the town's church. It was one of many events
and performances being held across the United Kingdom to remember the man who wrote
Romeo and Juliet. When my love

When my love swears to me that I made a truth, I do believe her, though I know she lies that. She thinks me some untutored youth, unfalted in the subtleties! That's what I know in that one!Very, very lovely.

Port Adelaide has plunged
further into turmoil after a 48-point home loss
to Geelong. The Power were ahead until
a quarter time brawl triggered the Cats into action,
kicking 14 of the next 16 goals. North Melbourne broke their
Gold Coast hoodoo to remain top of the ladder while the Western Bulldogs
disposed of the Lions.

Parramatta is demanding
an explanation for a game-changing Corey Norman
sin-binning, as the Cowboys beat the Eels 32-16. The Tigers suffered their sixth
straight loss in last night's other game -
hammered 60-6 by the Raiders. The Waratahs kept their slim finals
chances alive with a crushing 49-13 over the Western Force. The Reds' tough season continues - they were overrun
in a 40-22 loss to the Stormers. The Roar are in Sydney

preparing for tonight's A-League
semi-final against the Wanderers with the winner to face Adelaide. And an Anthony Martial strike
in the dying seconds of injury time has sent Manchester United through
to the FA Cup final with a 2-1 win over Everton.

Our lovely friend Sonia said she's going to see the divider today between the Western Sydney Wanderers and the Brisbane Roar. We had to say the decider!

Now it's time to check
the weather with JT. Lots of sport happening around the country today. One of the big games

country today. One of the big games
is the Diamond Creek women's footy club and the match which is starting at 10:00 this morning. The girls are warming up and I'm going to talk to one of the superstars of women's footy after the forecast.

Weekend Sunrise weather brought to
you by probiotic Inner Health Plus. Kept live and cool protected
in the fridge. Mostly fine across the country today
thanks to a high pressure cell. A few late showers in the west and scattered showers
around northern New South Wales.

This is Cameron, good morning. Jess! Jess played Australian cricket for about eight years, wasn't?Yeah, about that.And you decided to give it a bit of a rest after we won the ash ashes, the fantastic win. And then you decided to take up footy. What made you do that?Well, I think that I always grew up with it. I played it a couple of years before now, but never actually got a full season under my belt and with all of the exciting stuff happening around women's footy at the moment, I thought now is a good time.At the moment, there's a women's footy team attached to two AFL clubs. Next year, the plans are to expand that?Yeah, and obviously the a the moment, the AFL are doing everything that they can to ensure that next year's competition comes out just like any other league would, and I think that they're all very excited about what we can do for women's footy.And Toyota are a big sponsor of AFL, and that prize there, that car is the prize for a raffle that basically is set up so that clubs can raise money to promote women's footy?That's right. And we've got a community liasion program here at Diamond Creek and that means that some of our girls can go out to the community and make sure that the girls deciding between netball and footy can choose football.Thank you for joining us this morning. See you guys back here soon.

Thursday will mark 20 years
since the Port Arthur mass shooting, when Martin Bryant killed 35 people
using semi-automatic weapons. His actions shattered the lives
of hundreds of people and left an entire nation in shock. I was shot in my back,
in my shoulder. 20 years later! Think of the cost of that
to the country. I don't have a life any more. The prime minister at the time,
John Howard, instigated sweeping gun reforms, banning all automatic
and semi-automatic firearms and required strict licensing
for gun ownership. Since those laws came into place, there has not been
a single mass shooting in Australia. But gun control advocates say
that could be about to change. Earlier this week senator Ricky Muir
made headlines when he posted a video testing out
a new rapid-fire shotgun. And this is an Adler A-110
12-gauge lever action shotgun. it is a new technology designed to circumvent
the national firearm agreement and is a high powered
semi-automatic death machine. The Senator says this shouldn't be in the same
category as a semi-automatic weapon because it requires a manual reload. But advocates say
it shoots just as quickly.

The 7-round version of the weapon
is currently banned in Australia but 5 round versions have been
flooding the market. So should our gun laws be
strengthened to ban this one too or are we safe enough as it is? Joining us to discuss this further is president of
Gun Control Australia Sam Lee from the Blue Mountains
in New South Wales. And in studio is Senator
David Leyonhjelm. NSW MP for the Shooters and Fishers
Party Robert Borsak and former Labor leader Mark Latham. Good morning. Firstly to you, Sam.

20 years on from that terrible
massacre at Port Arthur, where are we on gun control?

Look, we've taken a bit of a battering over a 20-year period. We've seen a watering down of significant aspects of the laws, including the abolition of the criminal record checks, ability to shoot unlicensed at clubs and now the introduction of this Adler shotgun. It's a sad occasion in many aspects.David Leyonhjelm, you spoke to America's National Rifle Association to warn gun owners in the US not to let their Government tighten gun laws. Let's have a quick listen to what you had to say.We are a nation of victims. You cannot own a gun for self defence. It doesn't matter what the circumstances, it doesn't matter how big the threat, you cannot defend yourself. Look at what Australia did. It's a defenceless country today. I'm an absolutely in awe of the success of the NRA at holding back the tide and it never gives an inch. We love the NRA here in Australia and amongst our gunner and we lie on you guys to help us hold the line in Australia.You also said that Australia's gun laws haven't made the slightest bit of difference. Now, in the 18 years leading up to the gun laws in 1996, an average of 617 people were killed by guns each year in Australia. Since that time, the average has fallen to 266 people. That's a significant difference. How do you make that claim?Well, that was happening before 1996 is that the rate of firearm deaths of declining at a certain rate. Had been for a couple of decades. After 1996, the rate continued to deat the same rate. The rate of decline didn't change. So there was a steady reduction in firearms deaths over many decades, probably about 40 years. 20 years before 1996, the rate was falling. 20 years after 1996, the rate was falling at the same level. So if you take 1996 and now, yes, there are fewer firearm deaths per year, that's true, but to claim that that was due to the Howard gun laws suggests that there was, that it wouldn't have happened anyway.I looked at all of the figures for the years and you say that it is a steady decline. In fact, after a couple of years after the gun laws, it was quite a sharp decline and it has remained at about one third the rate of deaths by guns in the years before that. If you graph them on a long linear line and look at the rate of deaths per head of population, so you can't take absolute numbers, because population is going up as well. If you take it as a rate per head of population, the rate before 1996 and the rate after 1996 in terms of decline of firearms related homicides is exactly the same. Can I also pick you up on a point in your introduction that there's been so massacres in Australia using guns. That's not actually quite true. There's been quite a lot. Depends what you call a massacre but we had five killed, the Hunt family in 2014 in Lockhart in NSW. We've had lots of massacres involving three individuals.All with guns?Yes, with guns. We've had plenty of them. This argument that since 1996 we've had no massacres, therefore it must be true, is not accurate.And are those domestic situations. How would you respond to that, Sam? Well, the gun deaths were declining when 1996 occurred. However, they have accelerated since the gun laws were introduced. We've had no mass shootings in Australia since the gun laws have been reductions. We've had reductions in suicides, which was a huge problem in Australia. We've also had a reduction in the number of hand gun incidents across Australia. So it's been a very important aspect of our gun laws in Australia that we've had such a significant reduction in gun violence here.How do we define mass shootings is one question. Given you know that you gave this pitch to the NRA saying that the US Government shouldn't tighten their gun control laws bau we've just seen another mass shooting over in the US yesterday. Another eight people killed. In the US, a person is 20 times more likely to be killed by a gun than here in Australia. So Mark, I'll put this to you. Is that something that we should be emulating? A lot of Australians are saying - don't soften the gun control laws because we'll end up like the US where every week, it is not even news worthy any more because it happens so frequently?There are many aspects of it. But if you ask the Australian society, what is the worst thing about the United States? They would say the incidents of public shooting massacres. David Leyonhjelm was quoting incidents there, tragic, that amount to murder suicide within a family. What's happened in Australia, if you define a massacre as happening in a public place, pre-1996 we had them in Australia, m shopping centres and in public places and most notably in Port Arthur. Our shopping centres safe and our tourist attractions are safe, unlike America. This is a real benefit of public safety and well being in Australia that we shouldn't possibly jeopardise by relaxing gun laws and going down the crazy path of the United States.Rob Borzak. Obviously we don't need to guess in some ways where you stand on this esh u, given who you represent. -- issue given who you represent. The most recent research thinks that 40% of Australians think that we have the gun laws right. 45% think that they should be even tougher. You know, doesn't that suggest that the public has no appetite for weakening gun laws?No, I don't think that that suggests that at all. What we've come out today is that we actually need a Royal Commission into what happened at Port Arthur. A lot of the debate that's going on is well founded and the discussion is important. But in the end, what we really do need to see is proper closure after what happened at Port Arthur.With respect, haven't we done that?What happened in Port Arthur that we don't know about?I think there's a lot that happened in Port Arthur that we don't know about. And it has nothing to do with conspiracy theories but we need as a nation to go through the processes and understand the facts and understand the motivation for what was knee jerk reaction laws at the time. Whether you believe, as I don't, that they were well-based is another issue.Do you need a Royal Commission to know that.The semi-automatic weapons aren't there now and what we're doing is we're debating based on emotion, which is important. But we understand, people who have been through that process and we saw it the other day on the Insight program, that poor lady is still grieving. That poor lady is still there. SYou would say, Sam, that the kind of rifles that we're talking about now, but potentially loosening the gun laws can have much the same effect as the semi-automatic weapon? Right? That's right. That's what we would call rapid fire firearms. They can take six cartridges within the magazine. They're sold around 7,000 of these weapons already across Australia. They're very different to existing lever action shotguns and that's why they're so popular. And how long do they take to reload one of these?They're the type of firearms that cause massacres here in Australia. We said no to rapid fire firearms back in 1996 and we must stand up for our gun laws now here today. We should be proud of them. We've come such a long way. We've come so far. Let's make sure that we don't go back to 1996. Let's make sure that we don't have any more massacres here in Australia.One of the basic assumptions there is that universal background checks have been softened in Australia. Certainly that's not the case. Universal background checking is probably one of the primary reasons that we haven't had a massacre at all because the guns today are in the hands of people who have-checked, who have been police checked and who are good citizens.But your party has said that the waiting time on a gun licence is too long and during that time, we are doing those checks. You've been agitating to restrict the waiting time and to bring it down.That's absolutely not true.That's what happened on the Insight program the other day. John Howard said that four states are looking at watering down the waiting period, the cooling off period.You can't believe that. You can't believe what juried says.Can we get back to this gun.-- what John Howard says.Can we get back to this gun.He says four states have it there.Certainly not this state.Look...Can I clarify that all states there!Sorry, Sam. Just a second.Now there's no criminal waiting period checks for those who want a subsequent weapon.The assumption that the Adler shotgun introduces something new and more dangerous is utterly false. I don't mind people having their own opinions but you can't have your own facts and you can't create your own facts. The Adler is a lever action 12-gauge shotgun. They've been on the market in Australia for 100 years. 12 gauge shotguns have been around forever.This rapid fire one?Yes, this is the third on the market. Not even the first of its kind. And the 5-shot magazine is widely available. All they're arguing about is whether an extra two shots are going to make a difference.With respect, I don't care about the mechanics of that gun. I don't understand what you're saying in terms of how it works but I look at that video and I say - why does anyone in Australia need to be able to fire up that many bullets that quickly? Who needs it? The why do you need it argument is very authortarian. Why do you need a golf club.You can kill a lot of people very quickly.Why do you need a car that goes over the speed limit. You can kill loot of people very quickly with a car that goes over the speed limb.This is why we need to examine the basis of giving licences and why these guns are in the hands of good people, not Martin Bryants. Our gun laws were framed and are currently run on the bases that everyone who wants a gun, legally, is tested and is background checked - is a lunatic. No. No.That's exactly the way that it was based. And that's exactly how they have it.No-one says that about farmers. Farmers can legitimately have guns.The guns that have them there. The single bullet to kill a fox or a feral animal.No, it was framed on the basis of a rush of emotion and a political tunist named John Howard. To acknowledge that there is a possibility that someone might be a lunatic is not to say that everyone is under suspicion of being a lunatic, or that anyone is being accused of it.That's exactly the way that the law is framed and exactly how it is run.People like Ricky Muir who are running for re-election in the Senate and gone out there and re-advertised the gun solely for the purpose to appeal to the shooters there. That's as irresponsible and opportunistic as thing that you'll see there.I'll take that as a valid comment, Mark. But the point is this. The real opportunityism and the real advertising started last year when Senator Keenan decided to beef it up.We have to stap wrapping this up quickly. I know you've been trying to jump back in with one last thing to say. What would you like to say as rt parting words to the gentlemen here?Look, gun Control Australia understands that most gun owners out here have no intention of hurting anyone, and we agree - if there's something that we can do as a community to reduce gun deaths and to stop people from experiencing such horrendous grief, then we should do it.I don't think that anyone would argue with that at all.Control the person, not the gun.Control the person, not the gun.Thank you very much everyone for joining us and sharing your views on that. No doubt that our viewers will have their opinions on that.

While most retirees are enjoying
a relaxing life of leisure, 96-year-old Charles Eugster spends
his days at the gym. He pumps iron and breaks records
on the track, proving no matter what your age, if you work hard,
anything is achievable. Take a look. They call him the healthiest,
oldest person on the planet. (CHARIOTS OF FIRE THEME MUSIC) Here he is last year, smashing the 200 metre world record
in the over-95s category, adding yet another title
to his name. Anyone that tells me
they're too old to exercise, I would say to them
the first thing they have to do is to make an appointment
at the crematorium. Born in London in 1919, the retired dentist only started
working out at 87 years old after he noticed his body
deteriorating. He now trains twice a week,
even has a coach. My personal goal was just
to finish the race alive. That was my personal goal. But my coach has completely
different goals for me - which... I don't really want
to share them with... I mean, she talks about breaking
records and so forth but, I'm just happy to get
over the line still breathing. Now the inspiring nonagenarian
travels the world, preaching the message
that age is no barrier. We're very pleased to say
Charles joins us now. Welcome. Charles, you look great!
What's your secret?

Is it just the physical fitness or is there a mental side that keeps you so young?Well, as I always like to say, there are three most important things. One is - work. The other is nutrition. And the third is exercise - in that order. That means to say that work is the most important thing if you wish to age successfully.We've been looking at pictures of you running around the track and I was so surprised to learn that you actually only took up serious exercise at 87. Is that right? Why did you leave it so long?Well, wait a minute. I was an othersman! I was training six days a week --an oarsman and I was training six days a week. And being an extremely vain person, I was very disturbed by the fact that at about the age of 87, that in spite of rowing six days a week, that my body was deteriorating. And one of the things that I thought - well, I need muscles and I thought - well, who knows anything about muscle? And so I joined a body building club and hired a previous Mr Universe and he trained me for two years. One of the first things that he said to me was - you must not train six days a week, you only must train three. And the reason for that is simply that when you do strength resistance or that training, you should have a day of recovery.That is an excellent plan, Charles. Ange and I take exactly the same approach to this. We do two days a week of Sunrise and five days of drinking champagne. Am I right?Tell me, how have you found your health and your life has changed since you've been pumping iron? Can anyone do it?In my personal opinion, you can rebuild your body at any life. You can learn something new at any stage of life and you can rebuild your life at any age.Great. That's very inspying. Now, you've done a remarkable job of it, Charles. Ufer' like the $6 million man of 96-year-olds. Now, just very quickly before you go, you've got the World's Oldest Sophrinter, the golden Bolt in your sights. He's 105. How are you going to take him down?I don't know what you mean about that, but what I would like to do is to take part in the world masters game in Perth in Australia at the end of the year if I can find a sponsor!Oh! You have an ulterior motive. This is a terrific advertisement for you. Uncle Toby's will be all over it.You are an inspiration. Thank you so much for joining us.It's a pleasure. Delighted. The pleasure is all ours, Charles!

It's news time, here's Talitha. A 26-year-old Melbourne man
is in a critical condition after his motorbike crashed
into another vehicle. For the details we go live
to Sunrise reporter Jessica Tancred. Jessica, do you have an update
for us?

The 26-year-old man is still fighting for his life here at the Alfred Hospital. He was airlifted here last night after his motorcycle collided with a Ford station wagon in Melton South in Melbourne's west at around 9pm. The 35-year-old driver and his passenger luckily escaped uninjured and police will be investigating whether speed was a factor. It was a different story, of course, for the 4-year-old girl who tragically died yesterday afternoon in Cardigan in the outskirts of Ballarat. She died when the vehicle she was travelling in clipped a tree and collided and crashed into another one. The driver, her father, a 24-year-old man, was taken to Ballarat Base spn hot where he remains this morning with non-life threatening injuries. He's yet to be interviewed by police but her tragic death does, of course, take the road toll to 93 here in Victoria. That's up 11 from this time last year. So police are appealing with the public to be extra careful on the roads for the rest of this long weekend.Now, they're just a couple of the incidents. It has been a horror start to the long weekend on the national roads.

For the breakdown we're joined by Sunrise
motoring expert John Cadogan. John, what can drivers do
to stay safe? The

The decisions you make behind the wheel are critical. Put both hands on the wheel, put the phone away and pay attention. Look as far down the road as you can and drop back from the car in front. In Sydney last night, a 35-year-old woman crashed her Renault Clio into traffic lights and a parked car in Ermington. She was taken to Westmead hospital with minor injuries. In Ballarat, the girl aged just four was killed after the car she was in slammed into a tree. Police have confirmed her 24-year-old father was the driver. He's currently in Ballarat Base Hospital and police expect to interview him this morning. Six people were killed in four crashes across NSW including three young men returning from a hunting trip. A woman, just 17 years old, died after hitting a tree in Hittagong and her speedo was locked at 180km/h. Understandably, police are out in force pleading with drivers to make responsible choices.OK, thank you very much. A Sydney home belonging to an elderly husband and wife has been targeted in an arson attack. Sun rise reporter Sophie Hul is there for us this morning. Sophie, we can see they are
both with you now - they must have been so frightened?

Yes, I'm here with Margaret Hogan. You must have been so frightened. Tell me how you first realised and what you did?We were both in bed just listening to the football. And the fire alarm went screaming, you know, like anything. So I jumped out of bed and my whole front door was blazing up real high. And I said to my hubby, quick, quick, we're on fire. The house is on fire.I thought that she was joking for a minute. And then I've seen this red and when I looked at the door, there was a great flame there. And huge. And she raced in and got the bucket of water. She said - oh, gee whizz. Who's done this?And that's where you spent the rest of the night trying to work out like who could have done it? What do you think?I tried to work it out. I said, they're all great around here. There was no-one from around here. That's for sure. And then I thought, well, there's only one. They must have poured petrol there or something and set alight to it. But why?Exactly. And that is the question that police are still asking this morning. This is clearly a targeted arson attack but nobody can figure out why on earth this would have happened so anyone with information is urged to contact police.Who could do that to Margaret and Orb. And if you live next door, go and give them a cup of coffee and a hug. Thank you.

Cuts to negative gearing are officially off
the Coalition's election agenda. For more, live to Seven News
political correspondent Tim Lester in Canberra. Tim, the Prime Minister thinks negative gearing
is a reckless policy.

That would be the Government pitch from here to July two. Expect to hear it many times. Mr Turnbull and the Treasurer likely to condition firm the no change to negative gearing policy that they will take forward, mind you, given the Treasurer's recent comments, we hadn't expected great changes under the policy umbrella. The advantage from the coalition's point of view, they can now argue without any ambiguity against Labor's proposed changes. Of course, Labor plans mid-next year if it is elected to make changes such that negative gearing would only apply to new homes. The Government argues that that could have a dangerous and distorting effect on our property market thank you. Anticipation is building
in Gallipoli ahead of Anzac Day despite growing security fears. is in the Gallipoli Peninsula. Rob, crowd numbers are
significantly down from last year?

property market thank you.
Very much so. Some 6,000 last year. It's expected that there will be about 1,000 or so Australians commemorating at Anzac Cove. But those who have come, obviously they are as impressed as the generations before them. It's a very, very moving and spiritual place. Today we caught up with the veteran's affairs minister who met a group of winners from the Queensland Premier's Anzac Prize who are also here and it was astonishing, the look on their face, how grateful they were to see this in real life, having studied the Anzac legend. It's very important to see that so many kids our age actually went to war and felt that it was necessary for them to show their bravery and it is definitely something that really needs to be commemorated. It's obviously incredibly important for our nation that we continue to commemorate and that we continue to learn and understand about the events that took place.The Veteran's Affairs Minister did meet with the governor of the local region today. And they've certainly discussed security. From what we understand, it will be ten times more forceful than previous years, so they are taking the possible threat of terrorism very seriously. OK, it's always a beautiful ceremony. We'll look forward to watching it tomorrow live on sun rise. Thank you. Poor old Margaret and Orb.Aren't they in good nick, though. They told a good story.He told a good yarn.I just hope that this is not some neighbourhood kid with a flaming edgar gone wrong. Let that be a warning to everyone, don't try that.It seems really funny at the time, but it is not. Good on you Margaret and Orb. I think they'll be getting lots of cups of tea today.

Port Adelaide coach Ken Hinkley
could be forced to swing the axe on some of his big name players after a disappointing 48-point loss
to Geelong at home. A massive brawl erupted
at quarter time which will draw plenty of fines
this week. The Cats took all the momentum
kicking 15 of the next 18 goals. We're gonna help and guide
and back some people in. But there'll come a point where
some players - you know what - we've gotta make a change
'cause it's just not getting done. North Melbourne broke
their Gold Coast hoodoo to stay top of the ladder
after a 38-point win over the Suns. The Western Bulldogs are right
behind them in second place after dismantling Brisbane
by 53 points. In the NRL, the Cowboys
maintained their perfect home record with a 32-16 win over Parramatta. But the Eels are demanding
an explanation after Corey Norman was sin-binned allowing North Queensland
to slice Parra to pieces in the last 15 minutes. I thought he was trying to compete
for the ball. Definitely a turning point
in the game - 14 points - I think we were up 16-14
at the time. Jordan Rapana scored
a career-best four tries as the Raiders thrashed
a hapless Wests Tigers 60-6 in last night's other game. The Tigers have now
lost six straight games. Coach Jason Taylor says
the fans deserve better. Western Sydney can book a third
A-League grand final berth in four years with a win over the Roar
in tonight's semi-final. It'll be the last time
the Wanderers play at Pirtek Stadium before it gets redeveloped. It's that European kind
of atmosphere that gets everyone
just super, super pumped. We've gotta use the home ground
to our advantage. You know we finished second
and we wanna make the most of that. The winner travels to Adelaide
for the decider.

Are you looking over there for any particular reason?No, it was just a glance. I was thinking, my mum's Name is Jan and I would hate for all Jans to be touched with that! It is as bad as gingerism! That's getting out of control.We need a rally day. . A Now to JT and today's weather. rally day. . A Royal Commission!

rally day. . A Royal Commission!
The Sea Eagles have just made it on to the tealed cheered on by the Diamond Creekers. The women's footy is starting here just north of Melbourne as we go to the forecast.

Weekend Sunrise weather brought to
you by probiotic Inner Health Plus. Kept live and cool protected
in the fridge.

We we get on the field, it's a different ball game.I've been given a job, finally at the club. I don't know whether this is the job I wanted but I'm chopping the oranges.You're doing a good job. Thank you very much. See you back here in half-an-hour.You do a great job of that, JT! So many on the field there! Have

Have you beaten the Beast yet, out smarted the Supernerd
or netted the Shark? Of course we're talking about
the characters we all love to hate on The Chase Australia. By now we know what to expect
with their on-air personas, but what are they really like
when the cameras aren't rolling. Andrew got us
an access-all-areas pass, so we sent Seven News reporter
Glenn Connelly along for the ride. Take a look.

(THE CHASE THEME MUSIC) Boo! You got one question right. That's not gonna help you win here! Beast!
Let's see what you've made of. I'm really lucky. I love my job. It's the job I was born to do so it
makes it so easy and so unstressful. He may be the meanest man on TV but off camera, Mark Labbett, whose surname literally
means 'The Beast' in French, is having the time of his life. I will keep coming back
as long as you keep inviting me 'cause I love working here. Standing below him
on the impressive set of The Chase, he looks every bit a 6'6" giant. Up there, he cuts an intimidating
figure and has a persona to match. It's not a big arrival.
It's just a big person arriving. Away from the bright lights,
he's an engaging gentleman. His win ratio is the highest
of any Chaser anywhere. Yet he's been pleasantly surprised
by his new Aussie colleagues, not least, host Andrew O'Keefe. Andrew brings a demonic amount
of energy to the show. I don't know how he does it. And he's what I always call
the classic game show host. Um, and a very intelligent man. The Beast has got fans. And on the surface of things,
he's a cool man but people love the part
that he plays. Since launching in September,
The Chase has been a huge hit, creating unlikely stars, like the so-called Supernerd,
Issa Schultz. The Supernerd has become
a sex symbol! It says a lot about people's view
of sex in this world if someone like Issa can be
a sex symbol. But I'm loving the fact
that the public's loving them. Have you been surprised at the level of celebrity
this has delivered to you? Ah, yes. Very surprised. Still am. I spend a lot of time in airports
now, 'cause I live in Brisbane, Brisbane boy, Queenslander. Always flying back and forth. And it seems everyone in the airport
watches the show. Seems like some sort
of compulsory thing - to go to the airport,
you must watch The Chase, Australia because I'm stopped there
all the time. If Issa's an unlikely chaser, Matt 'Goliath' Parkinson
isn't far behind. Get into television!
It's the people's medium... For medium people! He's a highly successful former
stand-up comedian who went on Sale Of The Century
to plug a comedy recording. Mind you, he's been a trivia buff
since his school days in Perth. My first television experience
was as a young boy in Perth. I was on my school's
It's Academic team in 1978. In the state final, we got our...
we got our heads kicked in by the girls
from Santa Maria College. I think they doubled our score. So all our contestants
are lined up at the desk here. And you can see they're eyeballing
up there - the king of the mountain. The Chase's set is remarkable
in itself. Behind the scenes,
there's a quiet calm. While some chat quietly, watching
fellow Chasers in action, for most, the study never stops. But as Brydon, 'The Shark',
Cloverdale warns, it's not all sweetness and light. If the Beast has just filmed
a loss for him, you might want
to get out of the way. He doesn't like losing. And occasionally, it happens. The Beast reckons while our contestants are,
on average, younger, they're every bit as clever
as the Yanks and Poms. But surprisingly, he'd like to see
more banter. I think that's the real secret
to this show. It's actually fun, with a serious
quiz at the end of it. Rather than the other way round.

I like the demonic energy. I so know what you're talking about. How much did you say him to say that you were super intelligent!I gave him a CV that might have been doctored. Shameless promotion for The Chase Australia. Later this Sunday -
it's movie day. We've got the best flicks
for the whole family. And, which vegetable could
hold the key to good health? We'll reveal the superfood you
should have in your diet every day and it's not green.

Our next story goes against
the grain - literally. Most of us are lead to believe a diet low in fat and high
in wholegrains is good for us. Not so according
to Christine Cronau, the author of a new book that sings
the praises of eating lots of fat. And Christine joins us now.
Good morning. How did you come to this conclusion?

The Chase Australia.
First things first. What sorts of fats are you eating and how much are you eating?Basically, I eat what I call are the good fats, however it might be different to what other people think the good fats are. I've gone back to the real Cats, butter, coconut oil and the fats that we've really been eating for thousands of years. Traditional fats.Prior to the low fat era for the last 30 or so years.Why did you switch to that? You had issues of your own?I grew up low fat and whole grains and vegetables. I should have looked a picture of health. But instead. I ended up overweight and also had all sorts of health conditions. I had chronic fatigue and insulin resistance! So the question has to be asked - if I was so healthy doing all of the right things, why was I so unwell? Why was I struggling with my weight?So you think that the different people, A, metabolisms, B, you know, gut floor and things, react to different foods in different ways and fat just suits you?No, I don't think so. I think that we've been thriving on fats for thousands of years. And it was only since around the 70s or 80s that we've really cut it out of our diet. And what happened since then? How did that go for us with he since then got fatter. Heart disease rates went up, etc. So really, we've got this wrong. We need to go back to eating fat. Fat is actually very important in the diet.OK, we have heard some stuff with this with high carbs and a lot of times, doctors say when you go high fat, it can be bad for your health and saying cut down on some of the carbs.Satturated fats particularly.Especially butter. Unfortunately we've got that wrong. Satturated fats, especially, are amongst the healthiest. And I know that this goes against the grain and a shock to a lot of people. But in fact, I've been eating plenty of satturated fats for the last 15 years and haven't had to think about my weight. I haven't had to count calories and I haven't had to diet.Your inside are good? Everything there?Absolutely, my cholesterol is normal and my arteries are clear.What are the fats doing for us that we are missing out on if we eliminate fats from the diet.When we velified fats, we started getting rid of something else and eating more of what we didn't need. Heart disease and extra weight. We got fatter when we vilified fat. And low fat foods generally make us fat. They're loaded full of the things that do make us fat like sugar and extra carbohydrates.Thank you so much for coming in and I know you've said that your family eats twokg of butter a week!We do. Fat Albert's mum would love your family.

Hugh Jackman's latest movie
is out at the box office this week. Joining us with more
is movie man Jason Jabba Davis. Jabba, us the role a flying success?

Critically, the story has been panned by the critics. It's the story of Eddie the Eagle. The guy would not take no for an answer. He had dreams of becoming an Olympian and he set his sights on the winter Olympics and decided that he was going to be the first ski jumper for Great Britain in nearly 70 years. It's based on a true story. Hugh Jackman's character is completely made up. And as you can see there, he just pulls a funny face throughout. I cried in the movie. 8.5-year-old ruby really enjoyed it. 3.5 stars.But the G-fors of the ski ramp will make you pull a funny face.Yes, a little bit like Ricky Gervais in Extras. It's annoying but endearing there. Hugh Jackman is on our screens next month in X-men Apocalypse. I caught up with Captain American for his new film, Civil War, which opens on Thursday. He reckons that he could dispatch Wolverine but not so keen on taking on our Thor.Thor is tough and he's got the lightning and he's a God. That's a tall order. It's like Chris Hemsworth on Instagram and taking photos there. Just a little buddy in my backyard and it's like a 12-foot snake. So maybe you guys could you know, wrestle some wild creatures without that!More of that next week on the show. And Thor the Dark World prem year yars on 7 tonight.I like it when you do the celebrity interview and the celebrity looks relieved to get to the end of the sentence.He likes talking about Chris Hemsworth.What about Midnight Special.This is a cracker. Close encounters of the best kind. A father and son go on the run pursued by the Government and a cult there. Incredible cast. The fourth film from Jeff Nichols. 4 stars. Close encounters of the best time, seek it out and seek Midnight Special.Thank you.We knocked off a few in pretty quick time there. It's time for the news,
with Talitha. A motorcyclist in Melbourne
is fighting for life after his bike
crashed into another vehicle. The 26-year-old man crashed into a
Ford station wagon in Melton South around 9pm last night.

Just yesterday a 4-year-old girl was killed
when a car driven by her father crashed into a tree near Ballarat. A home belonging
to an elderly couple has been targeted in an arson attack
in Sydney's south-west. 90-year-old Aub Hogan
and his 80-year-old wife Margaret were resting when the blaze
was lit near their front door late last night. It's believed someone poured
accelerant on their doorstep before setting it alight. I'm trying to work it out. They're all great around here. There's no-one from around here,
that's for sure. And then I thought, they must've
poured petrol or something there and set a light to it. Fire crews put out the blaze
as the paramedics treated the pair. Police have set up a crime scene.

Two men have been charged over the alleged sexual assault
of a 12-year-old on Sydney's Northern Beaches. Police believe the girl
was approached by a pair of men at Freshwater beach on Thursday. They then allegedly drove the girl
to Brookvale, and both raped her. Two suspects - aged 22 and 25 -
were arrested yesterday. They've been refused bail
and will appear in court today.

I think there was a little bit of context to that as well and some scientists say that there are existing gases coming up there. So the cop collusion that they obviously wanted to draw is this straight to CSG and all the rest of it, but it looks like it's a broader discussion there.Sure, not necessarily related to the nearby one.Sure.

Port Adelaide have suffered
another disappointing loss, this time by 48 points at home
to Geelong. The Power made a flying start
before a quarter time brawl triggered the Cats into action - they dominated by Selwood
and Dangerfield. North Melbourne broke
their Gold Coast hoodoo to remain top of the ladder while the Western Bulldogs disposed
of the Lions by 53 points.

Parramatta is demanding
an explanation for a game-changing Corey Norman
sin-binning in the Cowboys' 32-16 win
over the Eels. The Tigers are in free fall, a sixth straight loss in last

Israel Folau became the Waratah's

Miranda Kerr to the Kardashians.

Obviously sometimes it's not as glamorous when we do these things at home ourselves. That one was a tricky one in particular. I love that. Borrowing her child's bike there with the Aldi bag. Probably not as designer there. But something to put a smile on your dial this morning. I love that one - in the bath tub! Yes, Carlie Closs, a little bit bigger than hers!

It's one the most famous tourist

his Leaning Tower or Pisa photo - literally. So, stupidly he took to the internet

Well, maybe not everything. New grown-up ingredients.

With Anzac Day fast approaching, appreciation for our retired
servicemen is on everyone's minds. But sadly many of our veterans
are doing it very tough. Every night an estimated 3,000 vets
sleep homeless on our streets. The situation has prompted former
commando Geoff Evans - who played a prisoner of war in
Angelina Jolie's film Unbroken - to take action. Geoff is lending his voice
to the Homes for Heroes project, an initiative raising awareness
and money for homeless veterans which kicks off with a special
fundraising walk next Sunday in Sydney.

Geoff joins us now in studio. Morning, Geoff. People might be surprised to hear
that so many vets are homeless. Why is this the case?

I think that many people would be surprised to hear how many vets are homeless. What are the leading causes of that?With any homelessness, it's always mental illness leading to a downfall. So we tend to find that veterans return from conflict and can spiral very quickly with poor mental health, substance abuse issues and then family breakdowns are usually the last straw. Once you're ticking those box, you're only a couple of steps away from homelessness and suicide. PTSD, anger and depression. In every case, 100% of the people who enter the Homes for Heroes have depression.How does Homes for Heroes help?We're a whole picture there. We get people into good and stable accommodation and look at starting to unpicking their lives to make them hole again.It's difficult to address your mental health issues if you're living rough?If you don't have a home, it's impossible to start to piece your life back together. When services are unavailable, people are too unwell to be able to access them.Jeff, you speak from experience here. You've gone through many of the things that the veterans have gone through and you've lost close friends while serving overseas. How hard was it for you to transition to a civilian life?Very hard and a long and slow process and I think that it is still ongoing. I've seen young soldiers put their lives on the line in East Timor. When I founds a homeless veteran on the street ever I felt the same way. That's what prompted Homes for Heroes.As part of your training, you're required to suppress any of your finer emotions to do the job that you're doing, but they're going to come out at some point.That is the problem. It gets pushed down to a pot and people turn to things like drugs and alcohol to try to hold the lid on it. But sooner or later, the emotion will come out and be processed and that can be up to 20 years later that we see that. And that's why we started Homes for Heroes to help people who are on that trajectory and if we can intervene early enough, they don't have to spiral that far down. It's amazing how quickly and how far people can fall. And we're very lucky to have the support of RSL and Services clubs who are running the fundraiser.This Anzac Day weekend, how can we help vets and people in this situation?The main thing that we need is money. So if people can go to the RSL and Services Club Association website, log on and enter a team into the charity race next week. We have the Governor-General kicking it off at 9 am. We have lots of live entertainment. There's petting zoos and all sorts of things for the family. People can come down and take part in the marathon or they can just come and enjoy the day. We've set out a 42km route in 3km circuits and on every kilometre of the route, we have a member of the fallen in name and picture posted. That will be in Sydney. You'll be planning other events in other places too?That's at Parramatta Park next Sunday, May 1.Thank you very much for coming in for joining us and sharing your valuable insight on that.Thank you for your time.

And you can support Homes for Heroes
by joining on the relay walk next Sunday in Sydney. Still to come - the new vegetable

The humble mushroom could be your
key to good health this winter. Today's Body + Soul lift out from The Sunday Telegraph and other
News Corp papers around the country includes an article on the many
benefits of eating the funghi. Nutritionist Susie Burrell
joins us now. Good morning. What's so good about mushrooms?

Beautiful mushrooms here. Thank you to them. What is it about the humble sh rc oom that is's -- shroom that's so good for us?A great scores of fibre and vit aminute B and Umami which is a glutamate which tastes a little bit like parts of cheese which is great for salt control. We're using them in place of other high salt ingredients.The Japanese describe umami as the sixth taste.Is that the same thing?It is, and that's why we we put them into dishes with great flavouring, we need less seasoning.Andrew said that he would take them home and make them into mushroom soup?There's a big movement around broths and bone broths. But there's no proven health benefit to mushroom in particular other than low calorie and when people consume them, they consume other ones and it is the shitake one which is very rich in immune function. So that's particularly God for the immune system. So perhaps when you're sick, I sometimes prescribe someone a soup with that particular mushroom.I wasn't thinking about a broth. But when you mush the mushroom.With the cream?In that instance, I would particularly use the shitake. There's no specific evidence for that. But there is evidence with weight control. If you add a cup of mushrooms in place of a meat base in your diet every day, you consume significantly fewer calories.It fills you up. It's lower in calories and high in nutrients. Now there's a lot of people with low vitamin D. Coming into winter, 25% of Australians have low vitamin D and there's fantastic vitamin D mushrooms. These mushrooms have been to the tanning bed.That's funny because when you see Larry on the tanning bed, he often wears the mushrooms and the cucumbers there.He's a fun-gi!He is a fun-gi!These are ct aive mushrooms and have an active form of vitamin D and can be great there. If you see the vitamin D mushrooms, they're great. They're all fantastic and all low in calories. Just add them into the day. A cup of day. And a number of health benefits.If you want the low down on mushies, the body and soul liftout in the News Corp paper this morning will give you the full wrap there.I always consume them with olive oil to break down the nutrients there, but you can of course eat them raw.Thank you, good on you.

Hello and welcome to your Sunday
edition of The Morning Show with Angela Cox. Ahead for you, Tim Ferguson
opens up on his life in comedy and his battle with MS. Plus, reality TV star
Louise Pillidge reveals the truth about her split
with Blake Garvey. But first up for you,
Dami Im is just days away from hitting the Eurovision stage
and before she sets off, the Aussie star has been
going back to her roots to celebrate the music
of the Carpenters. # Why do stars
fall down from the sky?

# Every time you walk by? # Just like me, they long to be # Close to you.

Good to see you, Dami. Lovely. Listen, you've been doing some
beautiful stuff for us every day on the show
with some Carpenters' music. The reaction has been tremendous.
Oh, really? People are loving this. What's it been like for you taking
on something kind of different because we don't immediately go,
"Dami Im, Carpenters." Mm.
We don't immediately think that. Yeah, well, my parents
sort of introduced me to The Carpenters when I was young. They used to play
Carpenters' songs in the car, and then I just used to sing along
and then, yeah... I've always been, you know, just... I love playing piano and singing. And piano was my first instrument
even before singing, so I thought it would be amazing
to sing these amazing songs just, you know, acoustically
and make a whole album of it. So that's what we did. And you're going to perform
another Carpenter song for us a little later. Yes.
A special one? A special one,
haven't done this before. It's called We've Only Just Begun.
One of my favourites. Wow! That's like one of the...
That's the biggest one, right? The classic, yeah.
Yeah. Alright,
we're looking forward to that. Now, it's a real thrill for us
to have you here this week because you are,
like, in Eurovision mode. This is...
Yeah. There's actually sort of days
to Eurovision. Crunch time.
Yeah, I can't believe it. I've only got about seven days
or something before I leave, so, yeah. How are you feeling? I'm starting to feel nervous.

And excited that it's all happening, but yeah, I'm just so thrilled and it's just an honour
to be representing Australia. Yeah. So has Guy Sebastian
given you any tips yet? Yeah, yeah. Actually, I spoke to him and he said that it's going to be the most
amazing thing you'll ever do, so enjoy it
and it's going to be intense, like The Hunger Games of music. So, I'm like, "OK." What a great description. So, people kill you
if you don't get the right points. People kill with glitters and...
Yeah, exactly! You said before you're just starting
to get nervous. Are you one of those performers and you can make
the nerves work for you? 'Cause some performers go, "This
nervous energy is going to make me "blow the roof off this joint." Yeah, I think you sort of need
those nerves to be able to really perform well
and deliver everything, so I'm trying to channel that into, you know, the performance energy
rather than like... Yeah, yeah, freaking out.
(LAUGHS) So, Guy Sebastian,
he came in the top five. Have you thought about what
you'd be happy with? Oh! This year, it's a bit different 'cause I have to go through
the semifinal and if I get enough votes
from other countries, then I go to the grand final. Whereas last year, it was straight
to the grand final. But I mean,
he came fifth, which was amazing. It's a really good result, so I...

Hopefully, I'll do better than
fifth, but yeah... I don't know. We'll have to see.
Can we vote? Have we worked out the voting thing?
Yeah, can we rig it in some fashion? No, you don't want to rig it. But can we vote because Ange's got
this really cool LA open text? You can text all you want
on your phone plan, right? Oh!
Oh, yeah. So, I'm just going to be
sitting there doing this. But can Australia vote? Australia can't vote for Australia. You can vote for other countries. So, if you have friends or relatives
over in Europe, then they can vote for... Call them!
So the Americans can't vote? I can't work some... I don't think Americans can vote. You've got to be
in the competition, but... Oh, you got access to the
Donald Trump database, which is... Exactly.
So good to see you. It's been great for us this week. You've got another song coming out
for us in a minute. Yeah, thanks so much for having me
the whole week. Hopefully,
we'll see you before Eurovision, but if not, you know, best of luck. Thank you. You got our devoted love
and support. And good luck
with the glitter fights.
Yes. (LOVESICK BY MURA MASA PLAYS)
