This Sunday, the young Australian woman who survived the Paris terror attacks tells 60 Minutes about her ordeal.

19 year old Emma Parkinson was inside the Bataclan Theatre last Friday the 13th of November, and was shot through the hip during the attack. 

She describes the attack inside the music concert, the moment she was shot, and how she escaped. 

60 Minutes Reporter Ross Coulthart has just interviewed Emma in Paris and says,

“Emma is a remarkably brave young woman, with an amazing spirit. She has endured a terrifying situation, and come through it with a strong message for the people of France and Australia."

60 Minutes Executive Producer Tom Malone says,

“Emma wants to make it very clear she’s not profiting from telling her story. Emma wanted to tell her story once, in a personal setting, and then get on with her recovery in private. Moreover Emma will be making a donation to the International Federation of the Red Cross.”


Adele is the most successful singer of our time, with an astonishing 10 Grammys, four Brit Awards, an Oscar and a Golden Globe. It’s no surprise that this record-breaking British talent from modest beginnings in Tottenham is on track to becoming a billionaire by the age of 30, but perhaps most amazing is that all the accolades, all the commercial success, have been squeezed into just two albums. Her third album – 25 – was released today, again putting Adele’s incredible voice centre stage, punching out soul-piercing songs with extraordinary power. There is much more to this awe-inspiring singer than the voice that has captivated the world. This Sunday, Liz Hayes discovers a woman who despite having one of music’s biggest voices is refreshingly irreverent and very candid.

There can be no more heartbreaking job for a parent than what Mark and Faye Leveson have done for the past eight years. Every weekend they head off into the bush to dig for the remains of their son Matthew, who was last seen leaving a Sydney nightclub in 2007 when he was 20. Police believe he was murdered but there’s no body, no blood, no weapon. But there are a whole lot of lies from Michael Atkins, Matthew’s much older partner. In 2008, Atkins was charged with Matthew’s murder, but later acquitted. However, one crucial piece of evidence was never heard by the jury. It’s a critical part of the case which police and Matthew’s distraught family believe could change the course of justice.
