60 Minutes on Channel 9 with reports this week from Amelia Adams on aging and Eryk Bagshaw on the crazy law where its legal to kidnap children.

GREY IS THE NEW BLACK


It’s time to boot the Botox and flick the facial-fillers. In other words, out with the new, in with the old. Wrinkles are sexy and grey is the new black. More and more women, and especially those over 50, have decided there’s nothing more beautiful than welcoming, and then embracing, the age of ageing.

As Amelia Adams discovers, the leaders of this revolution can be found in some rather surprising places. They include stars of Hollywood, as well as beauty industry icons like one-time supermodel Paulina Porizkova, proudly 57 years old, who says growing old gracefully is cool, and better still, no one needs to spend a cent to look – and feel – like a million bucks.

KIDNAPPED IN JAPAN


It sounds completely crazy, but in Japan it is actually legal to kidnap children. Yes, legal. In that country a bizarre law allows a parent in a failed marriage to literally abduct the kids and run off into the night. It’s possible because co-parenting is not an option for disgruntled couples who are divorcing. Sole custody is automatically awarded to the mother or father who was last living with the children.

That parent is also given the power to block the other parent’s access. While Japan is entitled to make any strange rules it wants, 82 Australian kids have been innocently caught up in this mess. On assignment for 60 MINUTES, North Asia correspondent for The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, Eryk Bagshaw, investigates how the seemingly sensible idea of shared custody has become as alien to the Japanese as a ban on whaling.
