Sunday Night is back to a 7pm starting time this weekend, and with a controversial interview.
Mary Kay Letourneau made international headlines when she seduced her student, Vili Fualaau. She was 34. He was 12. Even now, some two decades later, you can’t help but ask: ‘What was she thinking?’. Mary said it was true love, but no one else saw it that way. She was jailed twice but, somehow, the relationship endured. Mary even mothered two children to a then underage Vili. Remarkably, they’re still together today. As Sunday Night’s Matt Doran discovers in this explosive interview, this is a family still grappling with the truth of what happened all those years ago. Does this case amount to a love story or is it something altogether different?
Pulling the Plug
Next to the mortgage, it’s without doubt one of our biggest household expenses. And if you’re finding it hard to pay your power bill now, brace yourself because gas and electricity bills are predicted to soar even higher. But there is another way – taking matters into your own hands. Pulling the plug and living off the grid. Matt and Geraldine Devine and their five children are among an increasing number of families here and overseas trading rising household costs and stress for a simpler, cheaper lifestyle. For the Devine’s, that means growing their own food, no television, no technology, and – best of all – no power bills. Denham Hitchcock reports.
7pm Sunday on Seven.
