Ray Martin has been in Christchurch filing on the earthquake disaster for 60 Minutes.
The Nine show also has a story on the mother of Port Arthur murderer Martin Bryant and a CBS story on Lady Gaga.
A Mother’s Burden
It’s a face only a mother could love. Fifteen years after the Port Arthur massacre, that photo of Martin Bryant still chills the soul. You look into those crazy eyes and wonder if someone should have known what was coming. Was there some tell-tale sign that this man was capable of mass murder? It’s a question that torments Martin Bryant’s mother, Carleen. For the first time, she talks about that terrible day and what would make her son – her own flesh and blood – go on a killing spree that ranks amongst the deadliest of the 20th century.

Right now, she’s the hottest pop star in the world – and the most outrageous. In just three years, Stefani Germanotta, AKA Lady Gaga, has shot from obscurity to extraordinary fame. But her meteoric rise was no accident. Those notorious stunts and attention-grabbing outfits are all part of a carefully-planned strategy. Her arrival at last week’s Grammys, encased in a Perspex “egg”, just another way to grab the headlines. And, as Anderson Cooper of American 60 Minutes discovered when he joined her on her world tour, Lady Gaga has more outrage in store.

We’ve never known a summer like it. Floods, cyclones, bushfires and now the devastating earthquake in New Zealand. Watching rescue teams going about their grim work has been heart wrenching, but there’s also been incredible stories of heroism and survival. Ray Martin has been in Christchurch.
