He's done it.  Jeremy Star from Dunedin has finished the Pacific Crest trail .. walking 4,265 kilometres from Mexico's border with the United States, up to the Canadian border.  We first spoke to Jeremy in April before he set off on his epic journey.

We’re starting a new series today called “Missing Something?” – and Amelia Nurse is going to talk to people about certain things they might be missing, things that aren’t immediately obvious - like colour blindness and tone deafness. Today – it’s sense of smell. Radio NZ’s Jack Perkins lost his recently, after suffering a streaming head cold. Luckily he can still taste a bit - and we’ll find out just how much he can smell.

4:06 The Panel - Michelle Boag and Brian Edwards

More about the building standards in NZ, Auckland's low rates rise promises Len Brown, but at what cost? The new name for Edinburgh. And whatever else we get time for - Do you believe that PMS in women isn't accompanied by mood swings, that corporate access to the Maori King on big occasions will be a good money-raiser, that the Anglican church can sort out the business of gay and female clergy to everyone's satisfaction, that the misuse of pokies funds can be cleaned up?
