The Panel with Tainui Stephens and Irene Gardiner (Part 2)

From The Panel, 4:33 pm on 23 April 2015

The 7 Battalion Reserve Army band won't be playing at Wellington's ANZAC dawn service this year. It's the end of a 50 year tradition. We talk to bandmaster Rick Herderson about what that means to the members and where they will be playing this weekend. A report on the origins of our clothes isn't good reading. Gershon Nimbalker of Baptist World Aid Australia talks to the Panel about the The Truth Behind the Barcode: Australian Fashion Report 2015. Some companies with branches in New Zealand don't fare well. The subject of passport-free trans-Tasman travel's been raised again. Should we be opening our borders when we hear so much about the "terrorist" threat? A Wellington flat with a grim past has a new tennant. But he wasn't told by its Council owners about two deaths in the flat where the bodies weren't found until sometime later.
