2:10 Looking for Pluto - John Talbot

Will we see it ... or will we not?  Teams of astronomers are scattered throughout the country, in the hope of catching a rare glimpse of Pluto.  We know little about it, and tomorrow morning, we may only have about 90 seconds to learn more.  John Talbot is from the occultation section of the Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand.

2:20 Tahuna Breaks at Glastonbury - Marty Greentree

Glastonbury 2015 is coming to a close and one New Zealand band has played there for the first time.  Auckland-based group, Tahuna Breaks, played at the festival on Saturday night.  Lead singer, Marty Greentree, has just left the world's most famous music festival and he says it's been an unbelievable experience. 

2:30 NZ Reading - The House Of Pain

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single vampire having any sort of fun whatsoever is about to get the bash from his Auntie. Two cousins try to avoid 'the bash' in a vampiric reinterpretation of Aotearoa's cultural makeup.

Karlo Mila3:10 Pacific Poetry - Dr Karlo Mila

An award winning poet is celebrating something rather special today. She's loved to write for years, and she now can do it while being paid. She's Dr Karlo Mila, who has been named the recipient of the 2015 Fulbright-Creative New Zealand Pacific Writer's Residency. Dr Mila has worked in the mental health area for well over a decade, and has also maintained her passion for poetry. She's had a couple of books published, and her work is taught in schools here and across the Pacific. The writing residency means she will spend three months in Hawai'i, where she'll work on two writing projects.

3:30 Voices - Lynda Chanwai-Earle
