    This is the 6 o'clock news for Tuesday 25 November. And first the headlines:
    The Prime Minister has promised to help the drought stricken farmers in the Example
    northern part of the country who haven't seen rain for nearly two years. And in
    Sydney a group of school children are successfully rescued from a plane which Q11
    landed in the sea shortly after take-off. Transport workers are on strike in
    Melbourne over a pay claim and the strike looks set to spread to other states. And Q12
    on a fashionable note, there s to be a new look for the staff of QANTAS, Q13 Australia's national airline.


    The Prime Minister has pledged today that he will make two hundred and fifty Q14
    million dollars available to help the drought stricken farmers who have not seen
    ram for years, get through the next five years. Money that was to have been spent
    on the re-structuring of Sydney's road system has been re-allocated to what the Q15
    P:rime Minister described as 'a more worthy cause'. Farmers are to receive
    financial assistance to help see them through the worst drought in over 50 years.
    Many farmers feel that while the money is welcome it has come too late to save Q16
    109 Tapescripts them and their farms from financial ruin and are angry that the government did not act sooner.
    A group of school children who were travelling in a privately chartered Q17
    aeroplane from Sydney to Queensland to take part in a musical concert found
    themselves swimming for the shore when their aeroplane had to land in the sea
    just three minutes after taking off from Sydney airport. The pilot managed to Q18
    bring the aircraft and its 50 passengers down safely in the calm waters of Botany
    Bay where boats and pleasurecraft were able to come to the rescue of the boys. Q19
    The fact that it was a weekend meant that there were hundreds of boats in
    the bay enjoying the good weather and this undoubtedly helped the rescue
    operation. 'We owe our lives to the skill of the pilot,' said one of the boys, but the Q20
    pilot replied modestly that it was 'all part of a day's work'. However, all their Q21
    musical instruments were lost and they never got to play at their concert.
