Modelling A New Look

Josh Perry from Christchurch lives with cerebral palsy and the condition has affected his muscle tone, movement, motor skills and speech.

But his mind and love of life and sense of humour are completely unaffected.

For all of his 19 years, he's lived with people staring at him..... but now he's decided to make a bob out of it by becoming New Zealand's first disabled model.

We're on the catwalks with NZ Fashion Week's newest star.

EREBUS UNCOVERED

A special report by Paul Holmes - calling for justice - once and for all - for the two pilots of the Erebus disaster.

He investigates what, he calls - a scandal and a massive cover up.

After years of research, Holmes has come to the conclusion the pilots were not only blameless... but that they were programmed to die.

And the daughters of Jim Collins reveal how they've coped with their father being blamed for 32 years.

IN A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN

More and more girls and women are playing footy but can you imagine a day when a woman takes the field to play professional footy alongside the men?

Well here's three women - one of them a part time model... and one of them an AFL star who - as a teenager - took Football Victoria to court for the right to play with the boys.

But not everyone agrees it's a good idea for girls to mix it with the boys on the field.

Guest reporter Peter Fitzsimons meets three articulate and committed women hell-bent on playing the sport they love.
