The Seven Network is set to air previously unseen footage of Schapelle Corby's first moments of freedom this weekend.

According to The Australian the network will not be screening a formal interview with the convicted drug smuggler.

Indonesian authorities have banned Schapelle from doing the interview.

A promotional footage for the network's current affairs programme Sunday Night shows Corby inside the vehicle that took her from her overcrowded prison cell in Bali to a luxury resort and spa.

After weeks of speculation, Corby's first words following her release from prison were: "I feel like a crab."

Followed by, "nice one driver...woo hoo" as they escape the media pack outside Bali's Kerobokan prison.

It then shows Corby's reunion with her sister Mercedes and brother-in-law Wayan, with Corby screaming and jumping with excitement. It also shows her talking to other family, including her mother Rosalie, online.

The Australian said Seven confirmed last night that the segment would not include a paid interview.

"There's no interview with Schapelle, and no payment was made," a Seven spokeswoman said.

"It's a compelling piece of journalism that captures the moments and days after Schapelle stepped behind the door of the villa and experienced freedom for the first time in nine and a half years."

Corby, 36, was released on parole over a fortnight ago having spent more than nine years locked up for smuggling marijuana into Indonesia.
