60 Minutes has a heart warming Mother’s Day story and a look at Rio ahead of the World Cup.
A Mother’s Love
This Sunday, all around Australia, we’ll be celebrating our mums. And the mum you’ll meet is particularly special. Zoe Gonzalez gave birth to her first child, William, 18 months ago. Little William is the pride and joy of Zoe and her husband David. He’s also a living tribute to a mother’s determination and devotion. You see, William has a life-threatening heart condition – so serious that doctors advised Zoe to terminate her pregnancy at 20 weeks. Zoe defied them. Now, William’s remarkable improving health is the greatest gift a mum could hope for, and on Mothers’ Day they’ve got some more good news.

When the film ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ hit cinemas recently, it was a box office hit. The Hollywood juggernaut was based on the real life story of Jordan Belfort. The one-time stockbroker spent 22 months in prison for fraud and money laundering, after ripping off investors to the tune of more than a hundred million dollars. Today, Jordan Belfort insists he’s a changed man. In fact, he’s coming to Australia, selling his tale of redemption and the importance of ethics in business, at high price seminars. But the real ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ may not be all he seems – and authorities in the U.S. want to know what’s happening to his new found fortune.

Hosting the biggest sporting event on the planet is a gargantuan challenge. You need world-class infrastructure and now, more than ever, the tightest possible security. The world’s elite athletes and their fans need to be guaranteed of their safety. In July, the Football World Cup will play out in one of the world’s most volatile cities: Brazil’s incomparable Rio de Janeiro. And as if that’s not enough – the Olympics will be there in 2016. The only problem: Rio is South America’s most famous city for all the right and wrong reasons. It’s beautiful. And it’s dangerous.
