60 Minutes: All By Myself/The Truth Hurts/Mrs Cricket
All By Myself/The Truth Hurts/Mrs Cricket

All By Myself
Loneliness has become a massive health epidemic. In fact, researchers say being lonely is just as detrimental to our wellbeing as smoking and excessive drinking. And that means loneliness can be deadly. Just as worrying, it doesn’t discriminate. Loneliness can strike anyone, young, old, male, female, rich or poor.

The Truth Hurts
For the past 12 months, 60 Minutes has been investigating a highly mysterious church called The Truth. It operates in regional areas of Australia and enforces bizarrely strict rules for its 10,000 members. It bans television, music and dancing. No parishioners can wear jewellery; females must always be dressed in long skirts and are forbidden from cutting their hair.

Mrs Cricket
It might be difficult to believe, but there has been an upside to the misery that has afflicted the Australian men’s cricket team for much of the past 12 months. Fans disappointed by the blokes have turned their attention to the women’s game. And what they’ve found is a champion team of world beaters. Leading the charge is Alyssa Healy, Australia’s female cricketer of the year. If her last name sounds familiar, it is - Alyssa is the niece of legendary wicketkeeper Ian Healy. She also happens to be married to Mitchell Starc, Australia’s very fast fast bowler.
