Best of the Week - 15th June 2012

From Best Of The Week, 12:00 pm on 15 June 2012

Highlights from Radio New Zealand National's programmes for the week ending Friday 15th June. This week .... members of parliament must declare their financial interests in the name of transparency, but should the journalists who hold our politicians to account have the same obligations, for the first time since the government announced the intention to move to plain packaging on cigarettes - the tobacco industry fronts up to discuss it, the Transit of Venus celebrations at Tolaga Bay, Ambergris - the floating gold thats found washed up on beaches around the world, Barry Humphries tours Dame Edna Everidge and his other alter-egos for possibly the last time, and New Zealand's top pop culture magazine Rip It Up celebrates its 35th birthday.
