2:10 Feature Guest - William Shatner
Actor, singer, author, philanthropist, prolific tweeter, brown bag wine taster. William Shatner is a person of myriad accomplishments. For most of us though, he is now, and will always be :The Man Who Boldly Went.
Captain of the Starship Enterprise, his work on Star Trek as James T Kirk has assured him immortality.
But William Shatner is not a man to rest on his laurels. Oh no. Since leaving the helm of the Enterprise, he's gone on to establish himself as one of the most original, inventive, unpredictable and beloved performers in film and televison.
And then there's the stage shows, the adventures on Twitter, and the poetry app....! He's here in New Zealand this week.

In the more and more expensive rooms of our houses as property soars in price in Auckland is there an elephant we will resolutely not look at? The foreign buyer. How will making it harder for NZers to buy houses deter foreign buyers? A Novopay announcement likely today from Steven Joyce and we'll ask again the question, why can't schools look after their own pay? What's wrong with netball as a spectator sport for television, safety in the skies, and the cellphone tax.
