to keep people out of the black. We have a national electricity
market which is failing not only South Australia but
failing the nation. Turkey flexes its muscle,
but the Netherlands refuses to bow to diplomatic pressure. And we will never, never,
ever negotiate under threat.

And Trump's team explains
what the president really meant. The President used the word
wiretapping in quotes to mean broadly surveilleance
and other activities.

Good evening. The growing debate over the State of the Nation's energy infrastructure is becoming increasingly heated. South Australia will spend half $1 billion to help stabilise its electricity system after a huge problem with blackouts. It includes the country's biggest battery storage and a new
State-owned power plant. The Turnbull government says it's
an expensive admission of the failure of
rushing to renewables. Three states, three separate responses on one big national
problem. We have a national electricity market which is failing not only
South Australia but failing the nation. In blackout-plagued South Australia,
the State Government unveiled its energy security plan,
including new powers to direct the market operator. Building Australia's biggest battery
storage and a new State-owned, gas-fired power plant,
the first since since privitisation in the '90s. The State acknowledging its 40%
reliance on renewables needs a thermal-powered floor beneath it. To stabilise our wind resources
so we can put wind resources into the market a lot more securely. Going it alone created
and going it alone won't fix
South Australia's problems. Energy
security is dominating the national political debate because of many
and varied failures. One felt the most is price. A new report claims that
what was supposed to be the great saviour, competition,
has failed to deliver, with prices almost doubling
in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide
in the past decade. The retail margins have been higher
and that's where I think you're ending up with bills that
are the best part of a couple

of hundred dollars more
than they should be. In Sydney,
the competition watchdog worries about manufacturers being forced to the wall by
spiralling gas prices. The lack of domestic supply looming despite Australia's
abundance of natural reserves because of the lucrative
export market. They're just caught in a gas crisis
that we really need to do everything we can to solve. In Melbourne, Opposition
Leader Bill Shorten led an energy round table of his own. Jay Weatherill is acting. Now it is time for Mr Turnbull
to stop playing political games and work with Labor and let's work
together for the interests of of the nation. Malcolm Turnbull will hold his own
energy crisis meeting here in Canberra tomorrow
with the heads of the country's biggest gas companies. But today again showed little
prospect of national agreement on the fixes households
and industry are crying out for. Daniela Ritorto, SBS World News. Turkey is imposing sanctions
on the Netherlands as their diplomatic row escalates. It's suspending high-level ties
and banning the Dutch ambassador from returning to Ankara. SBS Europe correspondent Brett Mason
is in Leiden just north of The Hague, and joins me live. Brett, this feud is rapidly
spreading beyond the Netherlands?

Well, Janice, tensions between Turkey and other EU nations have certainly heightened. Germany has now entered the fray, criticising comments by the Turkish president. Meantime, Austria says it may now block Turkish ministers from campaigning here. All of this of course now throws Turkey's migrant deal with the European Union into jeopardy. No longer just a war of words, now Turkey is backing up threats of retaliation against the Netherlands with action.

That's just one of a series of measures announced by the Turkish government. It's also closing its air space to Dutch diplomats and freezing high-level contact.

Security's been stepped up outside the Dutch Consulate in Istanbul, where protesters show their support for the government. Turkey continues to blame the Netherlands for the bitter feud. It began when Turkish ministers were blocked from addressing expatriates Turks in the Netherlands to drum up support for a crucial Turkish referendum on boosting's Erdogan's presidential powers. Earlier the Prime Minister said he wouldn't give in to threats. Turkey is a proud country, as is the Netherlands, we will never negotiate under threat.And to make sure Turkey got the message.We will never, ever negotiate under threat. During an election debate, Mark Ruto was questioned about his handling of the rift with Turkey. TRANSLATION: Would you hand deal it in the same way next time?Year -- handle. You're satisfied with how you settle this?-- year.Yeah.But neither side backing down as Turkey's president again accused the Dutch government of acting like Nazis.

Has the EU and made to urge restraint, Turkey is now threatening to scrap its deal with the EU to stop the flow of migrants into Europe.-- has. All of this taking place one day before the Dutch elections and there is frantic last-minute campaigning taking place at train stations like this one as B20 main parties that are contesting this election try and get out the vote in the crucial final hours.The two key players in this election coming face to face in a live televised debate for the very first time. A prime-time showdown... Between eurosceptic
Geert Wilders Nexit is the best thing that could happen to us.

The highly-anticipated debate
failing to impress undecided voter Jaap van der Sar. I was hoping to hear less rhetoric
unless strong language, to be honest. We will still have to find out
what happens but I don't think I'm going to vote for either
of these men tonight. Or his young daughter kaja who has
been learning about dutch politics at school. With his opponent fading
in election-eve polls, the incumbent earlier capitalised
on the diplomatic stand off with Turkey. This is not the time can I say to be
naive about the state of the world. This is a time to be realistic
and not to rely on the polls that tricked us before. Remember the Brexit? We all thought that
would never happen. Remember the US elections? So let's not make
that mistake again. Let us stop the domino
effect right here. Telling foreign correspondent is this is a battle not just for Holland. -- foreign correspondence. People in Australia know
Mr Wilders' policies, they're calling for a similar ban on the Koran and mosques in
Australia. Are you worried about the image
that his policies present of your country? You could say these
are the quarter-finals, the quarter-finals in trying
to prevent the wrong sort of populism to win. The half-finals are in france
in April and May and then in September in Germany
we have the finals. And I want the Netherlands to be
the first country which stops this trend of the wrong sort of populism. If recent elections have taught us
anything, it's that the rules of the game have changed. It could take a coalition of three,
four or even five minor parties to determine
who will captain this government in the post-Brexit era. Which is precisely why those who have found thsemselves
at the centre of this deeply divisive campaign believe
nothing here will change. I think we had 81 registered
political parties for this election so it's gonna be such a wide range
of parties to form a coaltion that I don't think that major changes
will be possible you know that will really affect us. In the final hours of a campaign
that has at many times seemed stranger than fiction,
democracy is many things but it is not underestimated. In the Netherlands,
Brett Mason, SBS World News.

With about 24 hours before voting begins, what do the latest polls show?Well, they're showing just one all potentially two seats separating those two key players, the incumbent, Mark Rutte and the Freedom Party leader, Geert Wilders. That means there's a frantic race under way to try to get out the vote. Undecided voters and voter turnout will be crucial to find out who claims the most seats in this election. That gives them a real mandate to begin those negotiations and we heard from the Prime Minister yesterday that it will take several months for a government to be formed, which, of course, isn't unusual here but given such a high level of divisiveness, not only in the parliament but also amongst the public, there's going to be a very fraught campaign for either one of those men to form government and form government quickly.Brett, thank you. Brett Mason joining us live from the Netherlands. Donald Trump's plan to ditch
the controversial Obamacare health plan has hit a major hurdle. The Congressional Budget Office says
the number of Americans with health insurance in 10 years
will fall by tens of millions if Barack Obama's scheme is scrapped
for a Republican version. Before a devastating analysis
of his team's heathcare plan, the US President was busy pitching
against his predecessor's. At a meeting with
doctors and patients... People are miserable and it's
putting people out of business, it is putting people
in the poor house. Then at his first official
Cabinet meeting... It's failed. It's imploded and if we let it
go for another year it will totally implode. Almost simultaneously,
a much-anticipated indication of how the Republican alternative
would stack up. According to the non-partisan
Congressional Budget Office, there will be 14 million more
uninsured Americans next year if Obamacare is replaced. By 2026, that number
would rise to 24 million, pitting an expected 52 million
people insured under Obamacare to 28 million under Trump.

The head of CBO has confirmed
what we democrats have been what we Democrats have been saying all along. Trumpcare would be a nightmare
for the American people. The White House not buying it. The CBO looked at a portion
of our plan but not the entire plan. It's just not believable. The Republicans can herald
the price-tag, though. A reduction of federal deficits
by almost 446 billion Australian dollars over the next decade. While pumping up its healthcare
plan, the White House was also backpeddling over the President's
wiretapping allegation. I think there's two things that
are important about what he said. He doesn't really think that President Obama went up
and tapped his phone personally. The President used the word
wiretapping in quotes to mean broadly surveilleance
and other activities. Further muddying the
waters after this... You can surveil someone
through their phones, certainly through their television
sets, any number of different ways, microwaves that turn
into cameras etc. And then this... I'm not Inspector Gadget. I don't believe people
are using the microwave to spy on the Trump campaign. As for the Justice Department,
which was due to respond to a request for evidence today,
it's asked for more time. And from the President himself... REPORTER: Is there going to be any
comment on wiretapping? Thanks very much. No comment. Helen Isbister, SBS World News. Japan is to deploy its largest
warship on a 3-month tour of the South China Sea. The 249-metre long Izumo carrier
will train with the US Navy, stopping in Singapore,
Indonesia and the Philippines on its way to US war games in India. It's the biggest show of naval force
in the region since World War II. Meanwhile, the Pentagon has
announced it's permanently stationing a Grey Eagle attack
drone in South Korea, increasing its strike capability
against North Korea. The move is likely to increase
tensions with North Korea and China. The drones have intelligence
and surveillance capabilities and are equipped with
Hellfire missiles. North Korea has warned that US
and South Korean military exercises are pushing the region
to the brink of nuclear war. The British Parliment has approved
the landmark Brexit bill giving Prime Minister Theresa May
the authority to begin the process of leaving the European Union. But the process has been further
complicated by Scotland's decision to seek a new referendum
on independence from the rest of the UK. After months of manoeuvring, Brexit can finally begin. The bill allowing Prime Minister Theresa May to trigger the process of exit, passing its final hurdle in Parliament's upper chamber, the House of Lords. They have voted, contents 118, not contents, 274.The House of Commons approved the legislation weeks ago but the Lord's floored it, demanding parliament have a say in the process, demanding rights for EU Nationals already in the UK.People already here should have the right to remain.The government said the prime ministers should not have her hands tied during negotiations and the Lord's accepted the amendments. That battle over but another is brewing. Scotland announcing plans for another referendum on independence from the UK.I will now take the steps necessary to make sure Scotland will have a choice at the end of this process.With Brexit now a virtual certainty, Scotland's pewter looks very different to the way it did two and a half years ago during the last boat when they decided to stay in the UK. The Brexit vote forcing many Scots to rethink -- last vote.The last referendum vote I voted to stay in but this time I will vote to leave. The British Parliament must approved the second referendum and that isn't looking likely.The Scottish government should focus on giving good government and public services to the Scots, politics is not a game.The Prime Minister saying a new referendum would be divisive. Like Brexit, England and Wales voted to leave the EU but the Scots voted to stay. 56% of voters in Northern Ireland voted to remain prompting Nationals to call for a voter there. It increases the urgency for vote -- a vote on Irish unity. Coming up next: The situation
is getting very bad. Out of control?
Yes. With millions of lives in danger,
we take a close look at the drought in eastern Africa. Shortly, a violent storm
freezes the US east coast. And later: Governments claim success
in a cashless card welfare trial.

Warnings about the gravity
of the famine gripping parts of Africa cannot be more emphatic. The UN says millions will die before
the year is out unless countries step up and resolve these
tragedies that are man-made. Globally, charities
are pleading for donations. Conflict has exacerbated
the drought in Somalia. Indeed, it's so bad,
the mere fact people are seeking help earlier than they did
in the previous drought is being seen as a breakthrough. This is Baidoa, a town besieged
by two unforgiving enemies. The soldiers are here
to guard against Al-Shabab, the militant Islamists controlling
the countryside in this corner of Somalia. But it's the second enemy, drought,
that is now far more dangerous. Nine-year-old Ali has just been
carried into the local hospital. He's unconscious. But it's not from hunger. Not yet. After three years of failed rains,
clean water is hard to find. The doctors here believe
they're battling a sudden outbreak of cholera. Inside, weak from diarrhoea,
dozens of new cases. Many families have walked
miles to get help. It's a cruel opening salvo
of disease before famine marches into town. We are feeling this situation
is getting very bad. Out of control?
Yes. Due to the disease outbreak,
this is totally different. And can you deal with it?
With our capacity, no. For now, there's an orderly queue
at Baidoa's main well. A nurse, Abdul Razzaq Muhammad,
has volunteered to oversee the rationing. But every day more people
are coming into town from the parched countryside. The famine is going fast, very fast. There isn't enough food. There isn't enough water. And the problem is very big. Like any town under siege,
Baidoa is digging in and praying that reinforcements arrive soon. As things stand, they only have
enough supplies here to help one in ten of those who need it. And there's little doubt things
are going to get a lot worse. New arrivals seeking shade
on the edge of town. During the last famine in 2011,
many left it too late before moving to seek help. So maybe this counts as progress. But it's hard to get the timing
right in such a gruelling climate. This woman buried her four-year-old
daughter and five-year-old son on the journey here,
probably cholera again. And what happens if the aid
supplies run out? Those helping say the main lesson
of 2011 is to sound the alarm early. What we want to do different
is we want to say there is a famine that is coming. We are sure it is going to come, and especially if the April rains
fail. So what we are saying is get us help
now, get us the resources we need now, and we will save the children
that need to be saved.

And look how easy it can be. After 15 minutes of treatment
in hospital, nine-year-old Ali opens his eyes and asks
his father for water. In a besieged town, one life
saved, many more to go. Andrew Harding, BBC
News, Baidoa, Somalia.

Less than 2000km away
from Somalia is South Sudan, where famine has
already been declared. The number of people fleeing
has passed 1.5 million. A refugee crisis overshadowed only
by Syria and Afghanistan. Most are fleeing to Uganda.

Bus after bus packed with refugees stream in. Some of the world's biggest camps can now be found here. Over 2500 South Sudanese arrive in the country daily. Most have travelled for weeks by foot to get to Uganda. The passengers bring with them painful testimony is. It took this one in a month to get here, but the trauma of her 5-year-old son's disappearance still haunts her -- testimonies. TRANSLATION:Gunmen raided my village, was in the market and when I came home I couldn't find my son, Isaac. I search but he was nowhere, in the end I had to flee with my other children and a handful of close.Margaret only managed to carry her handbag. -- clothes. A grandmother, she walked for three weeks, a painful journey. She tells us the crisis is getting worse. TRANSLATION:There's food at home but how can we collect it? The fighters are there all day so we had to leave with whatever we could carry on our heads and some of these things we had to drop on the way. South Sudan is the world's newest country but it's already been ravaged by three years of conflict as the president and vice president turned their political rivalry into an ethnic war. Nobody really knows how many people have been killed, but over 3 million have been displaced and this, the UN says, has caused a famine in parts of the country. It's not that there's no food in South Sudan, it's just that people cannot it. Because of the constant fighting, people can't plant, harvest or go to markets and if the fighting continues, more and more people will be forced to abandon their homes and become refugees.

Mary and Rows were neighbours back home in South Sudan and when fighting erupted in their village and they fled together. They had to hide in the bush on their way to safety, surviving on wild roots. TRANSLATION:Soldiers surrounded the house at night and asked my husband and his seven brothers to come out, they shot them in front of our home. I lay down on the floor with our children and only when away when the gunshots stopped.Despite efforts at peace, there is no clear sign that the war is about to end. And as long as the violence continues, the hunger will spread. The Australian government has provided $34 million to various aid agencies working in South Sudan and Somalia since January. Jailed Byron Bay mother Sara Connor
has a week to decide whether she will appeal her four
year sentence over the death of a police officer in Bali. Should Connor choose to appeal
there is a risk a higher court could impose an even
tougher sentence. The judge bangs the gavel... Sara Connor immediately rushes out
of court showing no emotion. Just moments before
she was sentenced over the death of traffic police officer
Wayan Sudarsa, whose bloodied body was found on a Kuta
Beach last August.

The 46-year-old was found guilty
of group assault causing death. Her 34-year-old British boyfriend
David Taylor received a six-year sentence. I accept the charge. Thank you. Both could have faced
a maximum of 12 years but prosecutors recommended eight. Are you relieved it wasn't
the eight-year sentence? Taylor certainly was. He says he will not appeal.

We believe David feared
for his life that night and his actions refelcted that. Have you got a message
for your children? The mother of two sons,
aged 11 and nine, has always maintained her innocence
but the judges said her actions during and after the attack amounted
to violence under the law. Our client Sara must be released. That's why we will advise
to her to appeal. Connor has seven days to appeal
but that is fraught with danger. Indonesian courts can decide
to increase the penalty, not cut it. Everyone loves Sara. We are shocked, can't wait
for her to be home really. With time already served
and remissions for good behaviour, the Byron Bay mother could be
released in the first half of 2019.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has
postponed her trip to Washington to meet US President Donald Trump
because of severe weather warnings. A fast-moving storm is expected
to hit the north-eastern United States, bringing blizzards,
heavy snow fall and flooding. It's the calm before the storm. The coast of the United States prepares for a major snowstorm. I'm afraid of the wind. The snow doesn't bother me as much
as the wind bothers me. From Washington to New England,
people are stocking up and hunkering down. I bought a shovel,
I bought a big bag of salt. I've got salt, I've got the shovel. I'm ready to go. Even the animals are rugging up. The US
National Weather Service has issued blizzard warnings for some 50
million people along the eastern seaboard. New York has declared
a state of emergency, people warned to expect strong wind
gusts up to 80kph and a heavy blanket of snow. 16 to 20 inches of snow expected. The high-end could be as much as 24
inches which would therefore put this in the category of one
of the biggest snowstorms in recent memory. Boston's bracing for
similar conditions. We'll be seeing about
2-4 inches per hour. It could get as high
as five inches per hour. In New Jersey, work crews
are building sand barriers in an attempt to prevent
coastal flooding. While shoppers stripped the shelves
of home supply stores.

Unfortunately we're out of shovels,
and we're out of snow blowers, but we will get down
as much salt down. Thousands of flights have been
cancelled and drivers are being urged
to stay off the road. Stay off the streets for your own
good, for your own safety. But also to help the sanitation department keep the streets clear. The storm follows an unusually mild
winter with below average snowfall in a number of major cities. Michelle Rimmer, SBS World News. And back home, wild
weather has caused havoc in south-eastern Queensland. Damaging properties
and bringing down trees and powerlines as a
thunderstorm tore through. At the height of the storm,
about 6000 homes lost power

because of lightning strikes. And there's still more
bad weather to come. We can expect rainfall totals in excess of 100mm with 3-day rainfall totals possibly reaching up to 250mm. It was also a rainy day in Sydney,
with the wet weather expected to continue there
until at least Tuesday. Senior Comanchero bikies are among
more than 20 people arrested in raids across Melbourne. A simmering dispute
between Comanchero and Rebels bikie gangs is said to be
behind the police sting. Before first light, officers
from the Ecco anti-bikie task force descend on a home in Lyndhurst,
in Melbourne's south-east. Unable to dislodge a fortified front
door, they smashed their way in through a window. Several bags of evidence,
a motorcycle and two cars seized from the property. By midmorning, a woman
was escorted from the home. It's understood a man was arrested
soon after police gained access. The person arrested from that
address is a very senior person within the chapter
of the Comancheros. Neighbours say police activity
at the home isn't unusual. We didn't really wake up,
we just turned around because it's quite normal - it's the third time
in a couple of weeks, ya. Of course now it's on the street
and we neighbours...

It felt a little bit unsafe
as well for the kids. In all, 26 houses and a factory
were raided across Melbourne, yielding 21 arrests. Much of the alleged illegal activity
relates to the sale of illicit drugs and an ongoing turf war
between the Comanchero and Rebel gangs. The charges include a large
commercial quantity of drug trafficking, firearms
related offences, a number of firebombings or arsons
including the firebombing of the Rebels Outlaw Motorcycle
Gang. Operation Lichen has been under way
for several months and has investigated 21 non-fatal shootings
and the 2016 firebombing and drive by shooting of the
Kittens Night Club. There's been a number of other
incidents we've effectively disrupted and we've charged
individuals or OMCG members of both 15 people were injured when a bus
and a garbage truck collided in Sydney's west. Transport authorities alleged
the truck drove through a red light. Its driver was unhurt. Fire and rescue crews had
to free the bus driver from his vehicle. Nine of the 15 people injured,
including the bus driver, are in hospital. A 13-year-old boy has been
killed while skateboarding to school in Melbourne. He was on a residential street
when he was hit by a car. The driver stopped but the boy
died at the scene. A man has been charged with murder
after a head on collision that killed a woman in Western Australia. 46-year-old Shaun Southern
was charged in a bedside hearing in hospital, where he's
still being treated from injuries suffered in the February crash. It's alleged he deliberately
drove his car at other vehicles, before crashing into the car
being driven by Jenni Pratt. She later died. The trial of a controversial
cashless debit card designed to reduce spending on drugs,
alcohol and gambling will be extended in two remote communities. Welfare recipients in
Western Australia's East Kimberley and the South Australian town
of Ceduna will now receive 80% of their benefits on a restricted
usage card, indefinitely. Ceduna mayor Allan Suter has backed
the cashless debit card since its inception. He says it's working. It's the best thing we've ever done. The card is designed
to reduce spending on drugs, alcohol and gambling. It is also being trialled
in Western Australia's East Kimberley. For those living in a target town,
ALL welfare recipients under 65 receive 80% of their benefit
on a restricted use card - and the remaining 20%
in their usual bank accounts. An independent report released today
suggests there has been a reduction in all three target behaviours
since the trial began last year. It shows that a quarter of people
say they're drinking less, a third say they're using gambling
products less and another quarter say they're taking fewer drugs. The trial will now be extended
in both areas where more than 70% of recipients are indigenous. But for those who use
the card the same report found 49% of respondents believe it has
made their life worse. It's taken my responsibility. It's taken my ability to control
myself and how to budget. Some users say it has added
more financial stress by reducing the amount of cash
available to pay for small items. There's a lot of other
issues I've had with it.

Not being able to have cash
for my kids, for example, when they go
on school camp. The card is just one measure that
has been used to reduce drug and alcohol use in this community. Alcohol purchasing laws
were toughened in 2015, and a million dollars has been
invested in the past 12 months in support programs. The card's effectiveness
will continue to be reviewed every six months. It's not perfect, but it is having
the desirable impact that we're seeking. The Federal Government hasn't ruled
out adding more towns to the trial in the future. For many Australians,
the biggest choice after finishing school was betwwen going
to university or starting an apprenticeship. But apprentice numbers have fallen
to their lowest since the start of the millennium, and there
are calls for urgent intervention. For most apprentices,
it's about digging in early, choosing a trade
upon leaving school. But Andrew Goode is 32,
and only recently started his
plumbing apprenticeship in Canberra. Just for the challenge, mainly. I just wanted something new,
something to be able to learn again. I was sort of stuck in the same rut. He's got the measure of plumbing. He's earning less than
before, but not for long. I know eventually it's going to get
better and that's gonna be good money then. Canberra's Institute of Technology
is full of apprentices today, but the national trend
is sharply down. Ten years ago, there
were more than 400,000 apprentices and trainees. In 2012, it peaked at 515,000. The latest figures show
there are now about 288,000 apprentices and trainees -
the lowest since the year 2000. The apprenticeship system
is in serious crisis in Australia. Industry groups are uniting
to call for a $1.75 billion government agreement,
due to expire in June, to be given a lifeline. The national agreement
with the states is meant to modernise and streamline
the apprenticeship system. If we don't get the national
partnership agreement renewed, how do we actually drive reforms
in apprenticeships system? How do we get things like better
information to people who are thinking about taking
on an apprenticeship? As the number of apprentices has
gone down, more than a million 457 visas for skilled foreign workers
were granted in the past decade. There will always be someone,
somewjere else who is willing to work
more cheaply than the Australian safety net. The Opposition Leader says jobs have
fallen off the Coalition's radar. The Turnbull government says any
future national agreement will be decided by Cabinet, it's trying
to reverse the decline which started under previous Labor governments. But those teaching
the apprentices are optimistic. We always need buildings to be
built, we need cars to be serviced, we need food on our table
when we go to a restaurants, so there's always going
to be apprenticeships. Let's check the finance figures now. And the Australian share market lost
early gains to close almost flat, following a disappointing business
confidence survey from NAB. The miners rose after a 1.8% jump
in the spot price of iron ore. CBA was the only one of the big four
banks to make gains. And one Australian dollar is buying
just above 75.5 US cents. Coming up next, the Commonwealth
Games baton heads down under in a fried-out kombie. Also, taking aim, the Socceroos'

The Queen has launched
the Commonwealth Games baton relay from Buckingham Palace. For the next 387 days,
it will visit all the Commonwealth nations
and territories before arriving on the Gold Coast. It's set to be the third-largest multisport event in the world. The Commonwealth games, bringing together countries that represent roughly one third of the world was like population. The venue will be Australia's Gold Coast. The queen won't be there herself, but a message from her will. She placed her message in the baton, which would be contrary carried to other countries of the Commonwealth. -- will be carried. Anna Meares was joined by Victoria Pendleton. And it was then transferred to a kombie. It was the start of a 140,000 mile journey. Four years ago, Australia had the honours again, taking the baton to Glasgow. The route will be much the same, taking the baton to every Commonwealth nation and territory. It will travel across much of Africa. It will also head to the Indian subcontinent, four years ago it was taken by steam train to Sri Lanka and tiny islands in the Pacific. A reminder of the scale of the Commonwealth and the bindings that join its 52 nations. In April next year in Australia, the Commonwealth rivalries will be resumed. Like the Commonwealth, this sporting event prides itself on respect and mutual understanding. And if a city fence is holding the event in 2022, they are in luck. Durban have just pulled out -- if a city fancies. Time now for the day

down 23-man squad today for the games against Iraq
and United Arab Emirates. Teenage wildcard, Riley McGree
and veteran striker,Tim Cahill both survived the cut. But it's the condition of the SFS
surface following Friday's A-League game, which continues to cause
concern. I would suggest we've created a test that even the Prime Minister would have something to say about it. But we are trying to get to a World Cup, so it is important. The Socceroos take on Iraq
in Tehran next Thursday and the UAE in Sydney the following week. Chelsea manager Antonio Conte
and Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho have almost come
to blows during their sides' FA Cup quarterfinal.

United was reduced to ten
men after 35 minutes in an ill tempered affair. Mourinho later questioned officials
when Ander Herrera was sent off for two bookable offences. In the end, N'Golo Kante's second
half strike proved the difference. Chelsea will now face Tottenham
in next month's semifinals. Arsenal take on Manchester City
in the other final four clash. Meantime our live covearge
of the UEFA Champions League continues tomorrow morning. Juventus defends a two goal
advantage in the Round of 16 second leg against Porto. Our telecast kicks off at 6:30am,
eastern daylight time. To Rugby League, and the NRL has
denied the Gold Coast Titans are for sale. It follows speculation
the North Sydney Bears are looking to buy the club. While Titans players wouldn't
comment on a potential rebrand, some within the game have
welcomed a Bears return. It doesn't seem that everything is going quite to plan on the Gold Coast.Two losses to begin the season, their star player injured and now reports that the Bears want to purchase the club for $7 million. I can't see the Gold Coast community accepting their club being owned by a Sydney club. I can't see them accepting a change of colours.The Bears last played in the Premier League competition in 1999. They formed a new team, but that was disbanded in 2002. 50 years later, they look to return on the Gold Coast.The Gold Coast franchise, it is probably a bit of a reward for never giving in.It's been a tough market for sporting codes. The AFL are struggling, well the a league and NBL franchises have folded -- A-league. It is understood that the Bears would be played on the Gold Coast, playing matches in Gosford and North Sydney. It has been decades since the match was played here, but if the Bears' takeover is successful, they could return to this ground.There is a big basis for a return. Collingwood captain Scott Pendlebury
has declared himself a certain starter for Round one
of the AFL season. The 29-year-old was today unveiled
as the club's skipper for a fourth straight season. Taylor Adams and Steele Sidebottom
have been named vice-captains forming the smallest
leadership group in the AFL. Pendlebury says he will lead
the Magpies against the Western Bulldogs next Friday.

I think every player in the league wants to play the finals. The pressure is on as it is every year. We are ready to go. Collingwood hasn't made
the finals since 2013. Nathan Lyon says all the pressure
is in on India to maintain its number one test ranking ahead
of Thursday's third test in Ranchi. Australia came close
to retaining the Border-Gavaskar trophy in Bangalore. However, a second innings batting
collapse saw India level the series. Despite that, Lyon believes
Australia is in the box seat to bounce back. One win away from regaining the trophy, that is what we want to do. The pressure is on. While Lyon is carryng a finger
injury, he says he's confident of being right to play. Australian basketballer Andrew Bogut
is without an NBA club after being dumped by Cleveland. The 32-year-old was waived
by the club so that it could sign Larry Sanders. Bogut's debut last week
with the Cavaliers lasted just one minute after breaking his leg. And finally in sport,
a new nationwide program is aiming to address poor behaviour
at children's sporting events. The Let Kids be Kids initiative
is currently being rolled out accross a number of codes. And it's received the backing of
some of the country's biggest names. Every parent wants their child
to shine on the sporting field. But sometimes what are meant to be
words of encouragement can border on verbal abuse. It makes me feel like I'm useless
and I can't do anything. A number of stars including
cricketer Usman Khawaja, and AFL's Nick Dal Santo
are supporting the Let Kids be Kids campaign. Backed by the Australian Sports
Commission, the initiative aims to encourage positive
sideline behaviour. For Socceroos coach,
Ange Postecoglou, football has been a way of life for over four decades. And he has strong childhood memories
of negative behaviour. So often I look back at my junior
days and some aren't good ones. But challenging bad behaviour
when it happens isn't the best course of action. We don't generally recommend that
people take it into their own hands and try and deal with
it there and then. There are officials at the ground
that have that sort of role. But when the officials
are the source of the problem, it can quickly spiral
out of control. When you have coaches behaving
like that, you'll often see parents behaving like it behind. Why? Because you've set the tone I guess. Sports' power to bring children
and families closer together is well known, but when the noise
from the sidelines becomes negative or aggressive, the damage
can be long lasting. I stopped because I was being yelled
at and it just wasn't fun anymore. A reaction most
people can relate to. I've seen coaches constantly yelling
at kids and it doesn't typically get the best out of them because they're
playing scared rather than being expressive. The Let Kids be Kids campaign
has a clear message. Let children have fun
playing their chosen sport. It's a sentiment which has served
our national football coach well. And hopefully will be one shared
by today's coaches and parents. For us it wasn't about winning
or losing or becoming Socceroos, we just wanted to play
the game we love. John Baldock, SBS World News. And that's the day in sport. A fantastic initiative indeed. Coming up, the weather,

Artwork by more than 300 young
migrants from across the country will be unveiled tonight
at a special ceremony. The Harmony Art Collective has given
some of Australia's most recent arrivals a creative outlet
to tell unique stories. Mario Kharrat's passion for circus
performing began shortly after he and his family
fled Syria for Lebanon. He even joined a circus troupe that
visited schools and refugee camps.

Little bit make you sad
because you feel with them, but that make you happy too
because you make them happy. Last year, Mario made yet another
transition moving to Australia. I left my country and I have
to start from the beginning. The life in Australia is better
than the Middle East. There is war and other problems. Mario's story is one of hundreds
on display in the heart of Sydney in a new outdoor exhibition. The Harmony Art Collective
is a series of murals created by more than 300 young migrants
in eight workshops held across the country. We believe this exhibition
is an opportunity for Australians to connect with the stories of young
recently settled migrants so we can find out directly from them
their stories, what they've experienced back in their own homes,
and also see their gratitude for being here in Australia. The workshops were led
by established artists who with the help of interpreters
encouraged many to show off their artistic flair
for the first time. You can photograph someone
and tell their story, you can do a news article
and you can see them, everything's visual. But when you're creating
something from nothing, when you see an object
and you're painting it, interpreting it through your eyes,
what you get is something from the inside of people you can't
get through any other medium. The exhibit will be officially
launched later tonight as part of Harmony Day celebrations. This is just a sample
of the kaleidoscope of colour being presented by people
from across the globe who now call Australia home. Manny Tsigas, SBS World News. Recapping out top stories now. -- our. A half-billion dollar

I'm embarking on a new
railway adventure that will take me

beyond the edge of Europe.

I'll be using this,

my Bradshaw's Continental
Railway Guide, dated 1913,

which opened up an exotic world
of foreign travel

for the British tourist.

It told travellers where to go,
what to see,

and how to navigate
the thousands of miles of tracks

to cross the continent.

Now, a century later,

I'm using my copy to reveal an era
of great optimism and energy,

but also of high tension.

I want to rediscover
that lost Europe

that in 1913 couldn't know that
its way of life

would shortly be swept aside
by the advent of war.

I'm setting off from Tarifa
in southern Spain,

for a country just nine miles
to the south.

A land,
which at the time of my guide,

was jealously coveted
by rival European powers.

I'm Morocco-bound
and excited to be so.

At the beginning of the 20th century,

Morocco's riches set France
and Germany at each other's throats,

scrambling for control.

The Bradshaw traveller
had to be intrepid indeed,

and it was a matter of sheer chance
that the First World War

did not break out here.

The tourist across
this narrow stretch of water,

left elegant Europe for edgy Africa,

departed Christendom for Islam,

repulsed or magnetised
by the exoticism.

My journey begins on
the north-western tip of Morocco,

where I enter Africa
through its gateway, Tangier.

I step back in time
in the medieval city of Fez,

before fast forwarding
into the modern era

in the political capital of Rabat.
