The show will feature the winner of the Maori Album of the Year at the 2014 NZ Music Awards, Rob Ruha, Otautahi graffiti artist Wongi Wilson, and the Minister of Maori Development (and former festival stage manager) Te Ururoa Flavell.

We'll be speaking to Rangimarie Parata – an event organiser and performer at the event; Stan Tawa, the chef behind the feast of mutton birds, mussels, whitebait, crayfish and quinoa that fed more than 5000 people on the opening night; and Amokura Panoho will tell us about Parihaka’s commitment to passive resistance to climate change.

We will also broadcast our regular programmes at the usual times:

7:30 The Week in Parliament

8:12 Insight: Blurred Frontlines – The Changing Nature of Journalism

The images of Western journalists clad in orange jumpsuits being murdered by fighters claiming a holy war are difficult for the public to ignore. But for journalists, and especially those working in the Middle East, it means much more. Being a war correspondent used to involve watching the front lines, and making calculations on risk versus reward. Now, especially in the Middle East, conflicts involve armed groups who are much harder to predict than armies. Having covered conflicts both up close and from afar, reporter Kim Vinnell takes a look at how groups like Islamic State are changing the game for journalists.
Produced by Philippa Tolley.

9:06 Mediawatch

Mediawatch asks if the media can claim any credit for the quashing of Teina Pora’s conviction – and whether they’ll now let him live in peace. Also: A convicted killer on a TV talent show was a great story for some media but not others; and more woe for an epic TV drama about Gallipoli.
Produced and presented by Colin Peacock and Jeremy Rose.
