Sunder Katwala08:10 Sunder Katwala

Sunder Katwala (right), director of the think tank British Future, discusses the fall-out from the brutal killing of a soldier in the Woolwich district of London. The attack on May 22 and its aftermath – including protests from the far-right English Defence League – has reignited debate in Britain about the way the public and the media should respond to acts of extremism.

08:35 Tearepa Kahi

09:45 Queen's Birthday Honours - Clare Mouat

Clare Mouat has been awarded a Queen's Service Medal for services to mental health. She has been the secretary of Schizophrenia Fellowship Canterbury since 2000, and has contributed countless hours as a volunteer to help those affected and their families, as well as working to erase the stigma attached to mental health.

David Stuckler10:05 David Stuckler

Dr David Stuckler (left), political economist at Oxford University, discusses his dramatic new book, The Body Economic: Why Austerity Kills, released in New Zealand in July. Co-written with Dr Sanjay Basu, the book examines public health data from around the world to measure the results of austerity policies compared with stimulus packages – with some stark results.

 

10:45 Queen's Birthday Honours - John Campbell

John Campbell has been awarded a Queen's Service Medal for services to pipe bands and the community. He has been involved in the Mackenzie Highland Pipe Band for more than 50 years, 29 of those as pipe major. And over a lifetime spent in Fairlie - something of a bagpiping Mecca in New Zealand - he's served the community in lots of other ways too.

Maureen Johnson11:05 Maureen Johnson

Author Maureen Johnson (right) writes young adult fiction – among her works are novel The Key to the Golden Firebird, and the Shades of London series. She's calling for an end to gender-specific book covers, saying that the "chick lit" covers automatically given to books by female authors is limiting who ends up reading them. She explains why it matters, in a world where readers really do judge a book by its cover.

11:35 Taiaroa Royal and Taane Mete

Two of New Zealand's most celebrated contemporary dancers and artistic directors of Okareka Dance Company, Taiaroa Royal and Taane Mete, tell some of the personal stories that make up their new production: K'Rd Strip - A Place to Stand.
