Summary Sunday's Dateline asks who will run Libya now, and what Gaddafi's departure could mean for the whole region and its international relations; The murder conviction of US student Amanda Knox in Italy has polarised opinion, but now her case is putting Italian justice itself on trial; and six months on from the earthquake that claimed 181 lives, the city of Christchurch is still torn between despair and hope.THE FALL OF TRIPOLIThe protests that have spread across the Arab world seem to have claimed another dictator this week, Libya's Muammar Gaddafi. The fight back against his 40 year rule took hold in February, and Dateline was in the eastern city of Benghazi as it celebrated liberation. Now, the jubilant scenes have moved to the streets of the capital, Tripoli, as rebels take control of traditionally pro-Gaddafi areas, including the leader's compound. On Sunday, Dateline will have expert analysis of the upheaval as Yalda Hakim asks who will run Libya now? And what does it mean for the whole region and its international relations? Plus we look back at our 2010 interview with Gaddafi, when he confidently insisted that the people were with him and dismissed the title of 'dictator' as stupid.JUSTICE ON TRIALThe conviction of US student Amanda Knox for murdering her British roommate Meredith Kercher in Italy has polarised opinion across three countries. Knox has been labelled as a 'luciferina' or 'she-devil' in court, and vilified by some parts of the media, but her friends and family have always strenuously protested her innocence. Now, with a decision due next month on her appeal, Italian justice itself is on trial. Amos Roberts reports from Perugia on the questions around the entire sequence of events that led to Knox's conviction. How did police initially get a confession from her? Did detectives botch the forensic evidence? And did Knox's defence team fail in their role to defend her in court?ON SHAKY GROUNDSix months on from the earthquake that claimed 181 lives, the New Zealand city of Christchurch is torn between despair and hope...Despair over the people and buildings that have been lost in the disaster, and the slow progress of insurance assessment and rebuilding. And hope that the community is pulling together to build a better city, with ironically a huge boost to the economy from the reconstruction work. David Brill reported from Christchurch and nearby Lyttelton in the days immediately after the quake, and he returns for Sunday's Dateline to find local people still wrestling with some very raw emotions
