2:10 War Time Gold - Alfred Sasako - There's a huge cache of war-time gold lying at the bottom of the Pacific, and the race is on to find it. That's according to one journalist in the Solomon Islands. Alfred Sasako is a journalist, and former government Press Secretary based in Honiara. For the last few months, he's been chasing a story about a legendary trove of japanese gold, still lying on board a sunken ship just past the island of Santa Isabel, in a spot long known as 'The Slot.' The gold is now the subject of a furious hunt by two rival groups of treasure hunters, says Alfred Sasako..
2:30 Reading - "Jumping Ship" is an essay based on Glenn Colquhoun's time living in the small community of Te Tii in the Bay of Islands. He went there 'to learn how to engage' with Maori, and there he met Aunty Rongo, an old woman with a deteriorating hip. As Aunty Rongo's mobility decreased, he recalls, so Glen's mobility increased.

For nearly 40 years, they were a team. Wellington City Councillor and the City's first deputy mayor Helen Ritchie and her husband Peter. He was an engineer, building dams around the world and together they built a decent life. And then it all changed he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and early onset dementia. For the last four years of his life, Helen was his everything: Wife, Caregiver, support system, manager. As his illness progressed, Helen did not feel supported by what she calls an failing ad hoc health system. She's calling for a Royal Commission inquiry to investigate possible solutions in her book, Peter and Me: When a love story becomes a carer's anguish. (24′36″)

Your feedback, and a preview of the guests and topics on The Panel. (14′17″)
Topics - There are conflicting reports as to whether a ship tied up at Queens Wharf is part of the Chinese navy (according to a report in the Herald). The Prime Minister, John Key, doesn't think Parliament's hours should be reduced to make it more "family friendly". He says having children while in Parliament is "challenging but do-able" and it is up to each party to ensure nursing mothers have the support and time out they need. (22′31″)
Topics - Smashed smartphone screens have become a status symbol. Owners of apartments in Auckland's five-star Metropolis tower are pitted against one another in battles which have ranged from cat-keeping to who sits on the body corporate. Madame Tussauds has revealed it is monitoring the allegations of sexual abuse involving Rolf Harris to decide whether or not to put his wax likeness into permanent storage. A Christchurch high school has stood down four pupils after a picture of bullying was posted on Facebook. (27′03″)
