This week on Sunday Night:
To ink or not to ink? Tattoos were once considered taboo – mainly flaunted by footy stars, bogans and bikies. Now tatts are cool, and while parents may loathe them, many teenage kids count down the days until they can have one. Australian model and DJ Ruby Rose considers her naked skin a canvas for tattoo art. For her, they symbolise freedom and beauty. Join SUNDAY NIGHT as we visit the very cheeky Rose at the tattoo parlour for yet another inking – she already has 30. But what happens when the ink begins to fade, replaced only by regret? Hollywood superstar Mark Wahlberg tells reporter Alex Cullen why he’s jumped the fence in the tattoo debate, and why he’s now undergoing hours of painful laser surgery to remove his ink. But before you make up your mind on this issue, meet the former white supremacist who is now on the straight and narrow -although his face still tells another story. His painful transformation is frightening.
The terrifying true story behind Australia’s unsolved terrorist attack. A police hero murdered, leaving a widow and two young sons behind. The 12th floor bombing at the National Crime Authority in Adelaide in 1994 also left another man clinging to life. The man named as the bomb maker, still walks free today. In this major investigation, SUNDAY NIGHT’S Ross Coulthart reveals for the first time the extraordinary decision that allowed the killer to evade prosecution for 18 years. With a $1 million reward on offer, what Ross discovers could blow the case wide open.
OLD POT HEADS
The biggest group taking up weed are the over 50’s – nowadays more and more grandparents are on the ganja. All across America, and here in Australia, baby boomers are fighting for their right to get high. SUNDAY NIGHT guest reporter Mike Amor is taken into the secret vault, a hidden marijuana crop in a retirement village. The gardener is a grey-haired grandmother who gives advice on growing pot. We also meet Margo Bowler, a 76 year old pot smoking retired nurse, who says a joint eases the pain of her incurable illness.
Hosted by Chris Bath, Sunday Night airs on Sunday, July 8 at 6.30pm on Channel 7.
