Best of the Week - 14 November 2014

From Best Of The Week, 12:30 pm on 14 November 2014

Highlights from Radio New Zealand National's programmes for the week ending Friday 14 November. This week..... a conversation that 'wound up' climate change campaigners and skeptics, one of the world's bestselling crime authors, promoting Maori culture in an authentic and down to earth way by a Whakatane based tourism venture, the first ever attempt to probe the inner workings of a major faultline before it ruptures, a pioneering Maori novelist and short story writer who has written about his early life for the first time, a poet and biographer who tells the story of living with chronic pain, common household poisons, website design that caters to the needs of consumers with low vision, the man politicians, sports stars and pop icons call when they get into trouble, Jak the rodent dog who has given up the hunt after losing a leg at the age of 90 (in his years) and the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra as they record and produce their first full-length album.
