Sunday Night has funnyman Ricky Gervais and a heart warming story on a deaf couple hearing for the first time.
Modern Day Miracle
A perfect love story with the happiest ending you will ever witness. Sunday Night has an Australian first this weekend, an extraordinary live event that will allow viewers to witness a modern day scientific miracle that will transform a family’s life. Tim and Natalie Nobes were both born profoundly deaf, and met as toddlers at a special school for deaf children. Diagnosed as babies, the couple has never heard each other, or the voices of their three beautiful children, who all have normal hearing. But before our teary eyes, this is all about to change. First, we reveal the moment Natalie has her implant activated and then, in a dramatic live event, we see Tim’s magic moment as well with his family around him. When Tim and Natalie decided to have cochlear implant surgery their children had a lifetime of things to say to mum and dad, but none more important than a simple “I love you”. What you will witness is unimaginable for most people; how it feels to hear your loved ones speak for the first time in 30 years. We also meet little Noah and share his life-changing moment. Helen Kapalos reports on the most emotional story of the year.
Ricky Gervais tells the funniest joke ever on Sunday Night…..and the punch line brings the house down. One of comedy’s biggest superstars gave Sunday Night’s Rahni Sadler amazing access during filming of the new Muppet movie. In his most playful and candid interview ever, Ricky Gervais will leave you rolling on the floor. This working class kid from a housing estate outside London isn’t just up for a laugh; he’s also brutally honest about life, truth and his experiences with Johnny Depp, Liam Neeson and David Bowie. Ricky’s funniest moment comes when he discusses his love for Australia, a country he’s never visited! There are also exclusive interviews with Kermit and Miss Piggy, who both have their own revelations about working with the King of comedy.
8pm Sunday on Seven.
