2:20 From Adelaide to Brisbane on Bikes - Del Henley: Conventional wisdom would suggest that retirement is a time for putting your feet up and practising the art of relaxation. Not so for retired Auckland couple Del and Cindy Henley.

It's the book written by his friend and fellow 'sailor', Dave McArtney just before he died last year. It chronicles the stories that have become part of music mythology in New Zealand... the fame.. the drugs ... the siege on the US market and the eventual return of the 70's rockers.
3:30 The Play, Lantern - Lynda Chanwai-Earle: Maori versus Chinese, Chinese versus Samoan, youth suicide, parental expectations and dairies run by Indians; just some of the diverse topics in a high energy theatre production with a very provocative title on a major tour to secondary schools across the country. Lynda Chanwai-Earle heads to Saint Patricks College in Upper Hutt to see what the students think.
3:45 Panel Pre-Show - Zara Potts today, with what the world's talking about. Turning light into matter. That's a cerebral start. The amazing lung cancer breakthrough. The sheep dying in Australia through head banging. The man sueing New York for the largest amount in history, in fact for more money than is in the world, two undecillion dollars. It's a real amount. The world's favourite airports, socks with sandals are back! (story of the day). No more than one glass of OJ a day please, and breeding pigs to taste like scotch.
