Episode summary:

The Alarming Truth The Courageous Dr Davis Neil Diamond Trail Blaiser Update The Alarming Truth It was Australia’s most deadly house fire. Ever. Eleven people, eight of them children, were killed as an inferno engulfed the home in which they were sleeping. Two families, together for a cousins sleepover, ripped apart by tragedy. Three years after that fatal fire at Slacks Creek, south of Brisbane, the scars remain raw for the survivors. Disturbingly for the rest of us, authorities have not heeded the lessons from the tragedy. As this 60 Minutes special investigation reveals, Australia’s most popular fire alarm, the one that’s likely fitted in your home, is unlikely to save you. Reporter: Karl Stefanovic Producer: Rebecca Le Tourneau The Courageous Dr Davis This is a story of courage and inspiration. Dr Ian Davis was in the prime of his life, and part of the team charged with curing leukemia, when he diagnosed himself with motor neuron disease. He knew straight away he had very limited time left, so Ian set out to achieve more than most of us would in a lifetime. He’s jumped out of planes, jammed on stage with Pearl Jam, set up his own brewery, and ridden a specially designed bike from Brisbane to Sydney to raise money for MND research. Then Ian began reading books to his unborn son, in case he lost the use of his voice, or worse still, never got to meet him. Ray Martin has been with Ian every step of the way on this emotional journey, and was there when Ian’s final wish came true. Reporter: Ray Martin Producer: Jo Townsend Neil Diamond There are stars. There are superstars. And then, there’s Neil Diamond. He’s not so much in a class of his own, as an entire galaxy. Neil Diamond has sold more than 125 million albums, among the biggest selling artists of all time. For more than half a century he’s been writing and performing hits. And at age 73, this “solitary man” has no intention of slowing down. Allison Langdon took Neil Diamond back to the Greek Theatre, where it all began one Hot August Night more than 40 years ago! Reporter: Allison Langdon Producer: Steven Burling Trail Blaiser Update Blaise Wyatt is a trail-blazer. Doctors told his parents he’d never walk, let alone sit up, when he was diagnosed with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy as a baby. But those doctors had never met parents like Dawn and Cameron Wyatt. With their determination and his guts, Blaise has defied the predictions, and now, the 5-year-old is stridiing ahead in leaps and bounds. Reporter: Peter Overton
