60 Minutes chases Corby story

By David Knox on May 25, 2012 / Filed Under Programming 7

Liz Hayes reports from Bali on the latest in the Schapelle Corby story for 60 Minutes -but beware ,there is no indication she has an interview with her.

The Inside Story
Whatever you think of Schapelle Corby’s guilt or innocence, it’s fair to say most Australians think she’s served enough time in prison. It’s been 8 years since she entered the notorious Kerobokan prison – sentenced to 20 years for having 4 kilograms of marijuana stashed in her boogie board bag. And it’s been a very tough eight years. Kerobokan is a hell hole and Schapelle has been diagnosed with mental health problems. But this week – an act of mercy – as the Indonesian President dramatically cut Schapelle’s sentence by five years, raising hopes that she could be free within months. Liz Hayes has been in Bali for the exclusive inside story on Schapelle, her life in prison and the breakthrough deal to set her free.

The Amazing Hogan Twins
Imagine being able to read another person’s mind, to see what they see, to feel what they feel. Well, Michael Usher has just met two amazing little girls who can do just that. Tatiana and Krista Hogan are conjoined twins. Their physical bond is obvious. They’re joined at the head. But it’s what you can’t see that makes these sisters so special.

Forever Young
Nothing used to scream mid-life crisis more loudly or more eloquently than a sports car, a toupee and an ill-advised affair. But times are changing, for men and women. Nowadays, we’re more likely to stave off old age with a $12,000 push bike and a wardrobe full of passion-resistant lycra. Ocean swims, iron man events, triathlons, marathons, take your pick. But before you pull on the joggers and sprint out the door, a word of caution, getting fit and healthy later in life can actually kill you.

    Wasn’t home for this.After what happened to Schapelle It put many of us off future trips to Bali.I was considering one for end of next year now at time of writing looking and planning Cairns Trip instead.I suggest all of you who saw it tell me what the outcome of what Miss Corby did was to convince me to change my mind.

    But she’ll only be released into the custody of her sister in Bali, not returning to Australia immediately. 60 Minutes Australia is garbage these days anyway.

    These are the stories? When did 60 minutes get as crap as Sunday Night?

    Just my opinion but I think this will cause such a furore in Indonesia that early release talk is a little premature,won’t be the first time the media has gone off half cocked

    I am intrigued by this case. Can’t wait to see all the media outlets explode when she is finally released.

    Didn’t see this one coming did we?

    Isn’t there some laws that prevent convicted felons from profiting from their crimes?

    No doubt Murdoch’s rags will also bid for the exclusive rights to Shappelle’s story and she’ll be sought after for Dancing with the stars, Celebrity Apprentice and a nude spread for Zoo.

    Who said crime doesn’t pay?

    Simply pathetic.
