A review of media guidelines on the reporting of suicide is currently underway, with some arguing that greater openness could help address the problem.

8:12 am Sunday 8 December: Insight: Pacific-wide trade deal angst
Talks to form a Pacific-wide trade deal are coming down to the wire.
The 12-nations in the Trans Pacific Partnership have expressed confidence a deal could be done by the end of the year.

Can they be overcome?
Radio New Zealand’s Economics Correspondent, Patrick O’Meara, considers if any sort of agreement can be reached within the timeframe set out.
