ANNOUNCER: This is Nine News with

now, a huge devoted crowd is

soaking up the fan and glamour of

her second show at the Oprah house.

A wild celebration with some of the

world's best entertainers, topped

off with Oprah's enthusiasm. A

short time ago there was real drama

when Hugh Jackman was hurt during

his big entrance. Sarah Harris

joins us now. What happened? This

was supposed to be a well rehearsed

stunt. We saw him leap off the

Opera House but as he started

travelling down he really started

picking up some pace and he landed

on the stage with quite a bit of a

thud. He seemed OK at first but

then we realised he had a nasty

gash next to one of his eyes and

aged they took him off stage and barpbd

aged him up. He is well enough to

take a sip of red wine. All of this

has not impacted on what has been a

fantastic day down here. Reporter

to the office. Handshakes, hugs,

kisses, love was in the air. Love,

Hello!! welcome to the Oprah Winfrey show.


Woah!! Look at you Australia!! It

was a first, never before had she

taken her TV


Oprah's love of life is infectious.

Great to see so many Aussie stars

towards the end of the news.

Thank you very much. Two other news

National Australia Bank was struck

similar fate. Tim Matt Millen joins

Just like the recent any be well as

we are told it is the result of a

computer file processing error. It

was fixed at lunchtime but not

before some panic for the customers.

11 million customers, mostly

business banking customers, it

caused problems for the online

banking network and also the ATM

network. Some

network. Some customers found their

accounts empty and some could not

access their information at all. We

spoke to one man affected. A lot of

our customers pay by pique. We want

to get their orders out but we

could not checked to see if anyone

had paid so we could not look after

those customers. We also spoke to

an IT expert earlier an IT expert earlier today who

warned that these sorts of problems

are going to continue mostly

because banks are spending less and

less of their money on IT

departments so some worrying news

Inside her mother has been sedated.

The suburban paper with her

is sad and tragic for the whole

a convicted baby killer is in jail

then can her lawyer's appeal and

that could take years. A fourth

child living with her will spend

she has been shocked and bewildered

Why is it I pay good money for health insurance but I still have to pay for my glasses? Doesn't seem right to me. That's why at Specsavers, if you've got private health insurance

with any of these companies, you can choose two pairs of designer glasses

with single-vision lenses from our $199 range and your health fund will cover the cost for you.

So I can choose designer glasses? Two pairs - at no extra cost to you. Want designer glasses with no gap?

A lost generation of young people

may be the result of Australia's

worsening culture of binge drinking.

That is the warning from police of

doctors during the launch of

Operation Unite a major blitz on

drunken violence. Excessive

drinking leading to violence and

often serious injuries, and the

Christmas party season makes things

worse. A single punch will worse. A single punch will smash

your jaw and a single punch will

render someone unconscious or kill.

Police are fed up too. This Friday

and Saturday they be targeting this

kind of behaviour, right across

Australia and New Zealand. We want

people to take responsibility for

their actions. Some licensed venues

are doing their bit. The The Mean

Fiddler has overhauled its security

and alcohol policies. Our bar sales

are down which reflects that but we

are not having the issues that we

were getting before. It is about

changing the culture of binge

drinking. This is stage two of

Operation Unite. Back in September,

737 people were arrested with more

than 1,000 charges laid for alcohol-related crimes. This

weekend there will be an extra

2,000 police patrolling 2,000 police patrolling Sydney's

night hot spots. They are vowing to

keep the pressure on until the

message gets through. Those that

still don't get it will end up here.

It is the moment of truth tomorrow

for 7,000 anxious HSC students when

they find out their results. But

today the State's best were

honoured for topping their courses

and reporting Mark Burrows went to

meet them.

From Arabic to maths, to the visual

arts, our brightest HSC students

and it was the girls who out shone

the boys two to win. Example: Madeline Gottleib from Moriah

College in Bellevue Hill she stopped English extension two and

now wants to be a writer. Even at

six months she was devouring books

- literally. When I was 6-month-

olds my parents gave me a cardboard

book to chew on and I devoured to

whole thing and that is what they

attributed my love of literature to.

Ambition politics. I know, it is

not the flavour of the year, I

should say w the hung Parliament

but certainly one of my childhood

ambitions. Stuxnet computer worm

Boys High, he did his first HSC

exam at age 10. What advice would

you give for students? I would say

don't worry too much but make sure

you pick subjects you like and are

good at. Has Sheliza Hasser from

Cheltenham Girls High achieved the

best marks in Aboriginal study. She

hopes to be a human rights lawyer.

If you are passionate about what

you are doing you will get there.

It is all smiles here today but

tomorrow emotions will be running

every which way when the State's

70,000 HSC students find out their results.

Sport is next can Ken, and both

teams road tested the WACA today

ahead of the third Test? Yes, it

was England's first look at it and

we will have their and the Aussies

vect in just a moment. Also, the

Sydney to Hobart yachts sort out

the cobwebs. And tripped

flight by an opposing coach.

The crucial third Test begins on

Thursday and should Australia lose,

England will have retained the

Ashes. That is just about

unthinkable, and a lot will be

riding on the new faces brought

into the Australian team, including

opener Phil Hughes. While the WACA

pitch will also have a big bearing

on the result.

It is fast and fewer ruse and the

WACA pitch could hold the key to

resurrects our Ashes campaign. But

if England are worried about coming

up against her livelyest wicket

they are not showing it I think it

is really exciting for everyone and

it gives everyone a good chance.

The English bowlers had a field day

in Adelaide, especially James

Anderson and he can't wait to get

among it. It is nice to hear there

might be some pace in the pitch, a

bit of grass left on it maybe, we

will just have to wait and see.

The pitch has a history of being a

fast bowlers paradise. Who could

forget this 7 for 1 in 1993 when he

terrorised the Australian batsmen?

The surface may have mellowed a

little bit since then but the

curiaetor is confident there will

be a result. I suppose given the

WACA's history we hoping for a

result, but it is obviously up to

the players to basically make it,

but, yeah. Not since the days of

Graham gooch, some three decades

ago, have England won here at the

WACA, and the Aussies know they

have a big night on their hands to

stop the current team spoiling our

history. Traditional it has a bit

of pace and bounce and I am sure

that is what they will bring out.

And the match holds extra

significant for Philip Hughes. He

is confident he can make the most

of his second chance. I feel as

good as I have ever been but I

can't wait to get out there and

just enjoy cricket. At long last

the ARL and News Ltd have agreed to

terms for the new rugby league

Commission, but there is still

plenty of work to be done before

the game cannener its next phase,

they now have to choose the

commissioners. 'With Wild Oats' has

taken out the fourth big oat

challenge on the sit harbour. It

won by more than six month minutes.

Loyal local loyal came second while

others took a more relaxed approach

to the 14 nautical mile race. The

Sydney to Hobart yacht race begins

in just under two weeks.

Now to a case of bad sports manship

in an American football game. A

Miami Dolphins was chasing a kick

down field when an assistant coach

from the New York Jets stuck out

his leg and tripped him over. He

will have a lot to think about his

actions - his own team have

suspended him for the rest of the season.

Oprah wouldn't like that but she

didn't play any sport today, that

is about the only thing she

is about the only thing she hasn't

done. She just about walked on

water. Thanks for that. Now to

finance -

Well, after the break, Jane any has

all the weather details and we will

return live to Oprah's big Show.

Coming up on WIN News... A

suspicious fire in Fyshwick. The

So, the other day, Dad goes, "I'm gonna paint the deck "in this, like, taupey, Cape Cod, blah, blah, just grey," which he eventually finds online. But he then he starts going on about how the weather has to be, like, just right, 'cause it can't be too hot or whatever for it to work -

pfft, boring! - before getting all weird on us and checking the weather every, like, five seconds. Finally, on Saturday, he goes, "Weather's good, Amy. I'm doing it." And it looks really good... ..for a bit.

Alright's go back now to the action

down at the Opera House where Oprah

has just given every member of her

6,000 strong audience a pink

diamond necklace. How are thinging

finishing up there, Sarah? Not

finishing up through is still half

an hour left in the show and with

Oprah being qen of stunts you can expect

expect some big surprises. We are

told that the finale is going to be absolutely huge, full of

celebrities and fire works. When

Oprah hops on the plane Sydney is

going to seem very quiet. It has

been an incredible 8 days with her

in the country but she has promised

she will be back to visit very soon.

Thank you very much for that. Let's

get all the weather now with Jaynie

and we missed out on all the

showers? We did, it was a perfect

day to sell Sydney to the world. It

was another mild night today.
