1:15 Call for forced adoptions inquiry rejected

A call for an inquiry into forced adoptions was rejected in Parliament yesterday. Maggie Wilkinson has been fighting a 30-year battle for the government to investigate the forced adoption of babies born to unwed mothers from the late 1950s to the 1980s. Her own daughter was taken from her in 1964 when she gave birth at St Mary's home for unwed mothers, which was run by the Anglican Church in Ōtāhuhu.

1:40 Great Live Album: Stop Making Sense

Stop Making Sense by Talking Heads was released in 1984.

It spent more than 2 years on the US billboard 200 chart and was a popular choice for a great live album to play.

It could also pass as a great movie soundtrack, as the music is from the band's 1984 concert film, Stop Making Sense which was directed by Jonathan Demme.

The United Nations say connectivity to the Internet is a basic human right, however one-year on, it says half of the planet is not connected. Most of these users live in rural and low-income areas.

Associate professor Jairo Gutierrez, from AUT's School of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences, has been looking at how a 5G network could work.

Kate has two brand new albums to tempt us with today; LA based family band Haim, comprised of three sisters and another Californian three-piece outfit called Lany, formed by friends who all studied music in college and are multi-instrumentalists.
