This is a story about magic. 'A green rolling hill,
and a giant...' BOTH: '..named Bill.' But magic isn't real, right? It's a story we tell our kids,
a story we all leave behind. In adulthood, we change our mind
'cause magic's way too hard to find. And to that fact,
we're all resigned.

But maybe it's all around us. Maybe it's magic
of a different kind. What if I told you I could put you
in two towns at once? Then would you believe in magic? Or what if I said I could
breathe life into machines? Then would you believe? What if I could ease your mind? What if I could make you smile
when you don't want to? What if I could take you high up,
push you farther? What if I could promise you
the world? Then would you believe in magic?

Or what if I said
I could help you save a life? Then would you believe?

See? We live in a magical world. We never have to wake
from our dreams, our restless minds now free
to wonder at the wonder of technology,
at the magic we've created. Possibilities are like stars now - infinite constellations
fuelled by pure imagination leading to one destination -
to you, to thrive.

Hello, everybody, welcome to
the Millionaire Hot Seat tonight.

I've got a million dollars, I
want to give it away tonight.

What do you reckon, gang, yeah?

Let's go! We're all set to
change somebody's life tonight,

six wonderful contestants,
a ripping audience,

got all the questions ready to go,

and the big hot seat
ready to fire up.

So, let's meet our contestants

And sitting in seat number one -

my old mate Peter 'Sully' Sullivan,
one half of the two-man band

that wrote the magnificent hit
'Up There Cazaly'.

WA's Valerie Ah Chee has two sons
playing AFL football -

one for Port, one for Gold Coast.

Chantelle Le Brocque tells people

she saved Marcia Hines's life
by not crashing into her.

Wendy Bankes still brags that she
gave Wally Masur his winning haircut

at the '87 Aussie Open.

Ryan Smedley can name every best
musical Tony Award winner since 1949.

And while living in New Zealand,

Will Adams was a hand model
for the Budweiser commercial.

There you go.
There's a claim to fame!

Alright, wow.
I'd better declare an interest here,

because this bloke has been
working alongside me

for the best part of 30 years,

and has been a superstar of
the Australian television industry.

Ladies and gentlemen,
Mr Peter 'Sully' Sullivan. Come on!

How are ya, mate?
Very well, thanks, Ed.

Great to have you here.
Thank you very much.

From Mentone in Victoria. It says
here you're 66. That can't be right.

Yeah, no, I am.I would have
thought you were 90 by now. No!

Ellie's your beautiful daughter.
Hi, Ellie, how are ya?

Good, thank you, how are you?
Good to see you.

Peter, tell me about you
and Mike Brady sitting down

and writing 'Up There Cazaly'.

We all know 'Up There Cazaly'?
ALL: Yeah.

# Well, you work to earn
a living... #

Great song. I should take...
Mike wrote it.

He wrote it the night before,

then he came into the studio
the next morning,

played it to me, and then we had
a bit of a play with it.

He went out for a while
and came back and it was all done.

Then we just did our vocals.

Now, this is a story that I heard
years and years ago,

that when it came to
recording 'Up There Cazaly',

you didn't have any nat sound,
natural sound,

of an Australian Rules crowd
going nuts

and you had to use a soccer crowd,
is that it?

That's true, off
the sound effects CD.

They weren't CDs then,
but whatever they were.

Whatever. Tapes and things.

How long have you been in
the industry for, these days?

I started as a pro musician about
1964, I reckon. A long time.

51 years, mate. Good effort.

Peter, the last time I saw you,

you were performing at Ron Barassi's
80th birthday party.That's right.

You're still out there playing
and on the stage all the time.

Tell me about some of the things
you're doing at the moment.

Playing sometimes four hours a day,
it's fantastic.

My fingers are getting
faster with my old age.

I do a lot of aged care and seniors,
but a lot of gigs still with bands,

and trying to develop my show to
put on, the Liberace show.Yeah?

So, playing all the time,
it's fantastic.

Good on you, Peter. Hey, give
him a big round of applause.

One of the great musicians
of Australia, Peter Sullivan.

Right, Pete. Ellie's up the back,
one of the five kids -

Danny, Ben, Kate, Tom and Ellie.

Seven grandchildren.

You ready to play Hot Seat?
Definitely am.

Let's go, come on.



Yes, I think I know this, Ed.
I'm gonna lock in C.



Which of these is not a
famous director of horror films?

OK, OK. I think I'll lock in D, Eddie.

'Alfredo de Darke', correct for $200.

Romero was 'Night of the Living
Dead' and 'Dawn of the Dead'. Craven was 'A Nightmare
on Elm Street' and 'Scream'

and Carpenter was 'Halloween'
and 'The Thing'.



Yeah, no, not quite sure, Ed.
I think I'm gonna pass.

Gonna bail are you, Pete?
Catch you later. See ya, mate.

Hello, Valerie.Hi.

Valerie Ah Chee

from Armadale in Western Australia
is 45 years of age,

a midwife at the Armadale Hospital.

You designed the Port Adelaide
Indigenous jumper one year.

What year was that?

What was the... Tell me about the
design, how did you come up with it?

Basically, I just did five circles

that represented the Indigenous boys
that were on the list

and I also added the connection
to Port Adelaide

and their connection to their
country and families back home.

Good on you, Valerie. Brendon
is your husband. G'day, Brendon.

How you going, Ed?
Good to see you, buddy.

Tell me, your son Brendon is
playing at Port Adelaide, of course.

And Callum was
the number eight pick

in the first round of the AFL draft
back in 2015,

and doing great
things for the Gold Coast.

It must be hard having two boys...

Well, it must be great having
two boys playing AFL football,

but hard having them in
two different states.

It is. It's really exciting
for them, sad for me.

It's hard letting
them go when they're 18.

But, yeah, get to see them
as often as we can.Good on you.

You went back and studied midwifery,
did you?Yes, I did, at 41.

How's that been for you?
It's been great.

I'm now a graduate midwife, so...

I'm loving it, learning every day,

and something exciting happening
every day. It's great.

Good on you. Valerie...


OK, so, I don't think it's A or B.

I'm gonna lock in C, Eddie,

Linguine is locked in,
linguine's correct for $300.


Basic postage rate
for Australian stamps. I can honestly tell you, I haven't
sent anything in a verylong time...

The old snail mail? I'm not sure,
so I might pass, Eddie.

Catch you later, Valerie.
See you later.

Hello, Chantelle.Hello.
How are you?Good, thank you.

Chantelle Le Brocque, from
the Sutherland Shire.Yes.

A Shire girl.
I am, yes.

23 years of age, a student in
Masters of Primary School Teaching

at the University of Wollongong.

Charlotte is your sister.
Hi, Charlotte.Hi, Eddie.

How are ya?
I'm good.

That's the way. Good luck tonight.
I hope everything goes well.

Oh, thank you.
That's the way.

Hey, Chantelle,

tell me how you saved Marcia Hines's
life by not killing her.

Well, we decided to -
me and my sister -

hire one of those tandem bikes.

We weren't very good at riding it
at the time,

I let my sister be the navigator.

We got up a big hill,
hurtled out of control,

Marcia Hines has got her earphones
in, oblivious, exercising.

People are screaming,
we're racing down the hill,

we took the decision to career into
the pond to save her life instead.

So you went into the pond rather
than into Marcia?We did, yes.

Fantastic. Good decision,
I reckon, Chantelle.

Hey, tell me about your budgie.
What's it called?

Well, it was called Eddie.
What do you mean 'was called'?

Unfortunately, he died.
But he was named after you.

Oh, good. Yeah?
Yeah, he was named after you.

He was a big fan, loved your show,
yes.He was great.

How'd he die?

Well, he had a stroke, but...

Well, if I start twitching, you know
what to do this time, Chantelle.


OK, I really have no idea.

Ten seconds.

A dollar sounds like a lot.
Maybe A, 70 cents?

Six seconds, what do you want to do?
B, B... D, a dollar!

Geez, we did a lap there.

If only Australia Post
could deliver that quickly.

A dollar is correct, for $500.

Well done, Chantelle.

We are 11 questions away
from a million dollars.

We'll do it right after this
in the Hot Seat.
