1:20 South Pacific - Tim Beveridge and Tizane McEvoy

Tim Beveridge and Tizane McEvoy are starring in Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic musical, South Pacific. They'll be touring from Kerikeri in the Far North to Invercargill in the Far South, transporting audiences to the war-time romance. The work premiered in 1949 on Broadway and was an immediate hit, but it drew a fair amount of controversy. Baritone, Tim Beveridge, has had a career spanning more than 20 years and has encompassed many roles including actor, singer, producer, conductor and arranger. And singer, Tizane McEvoy, has previously performed with Kiri te Kanawa and Andrea Bocelli.

He's a doctor, poet and children's writer. Dr Glenn Colquhoun won the Jessie McKay best first book of poetry award, at the 2000 Montana NZ book Awards for his collection, The Art of Walking Upright. His third collection, Playing God, won the poetry section of the same awards in 2003 as well as the readers' choice award. He was awarded the Prize in modern letters in 2004 and a Fulbright scholarship to Harvard University in 2010. Glenn is giving the Remembrance address at the 20th Going West Books and Writers Festival this Friday.

Neil McLean spent 35 years as a coroner, eight as New Zealand's first Chief Coroner, and oversaw two of New Zealand's biggest mass casualty events: the Pike River mine disaster and the Christchurch earthquakes.

Some plane crashes do have a happy ending. German photographer Dietmar Eckell spent 3 years, traveling to four continents to find 15 aircraft crash sites where everyone on board survived. His quest took him to  deserts, swamps, jungles and mountain tops.  He features  his photographs in a book called Happy End.  He paid for the travel and the book through crowdfunding. Dietmar Eckell talks about these aviation miracles and why many of the planes are remarkably well preserved. 

3:35 Our Changing World - Alison Ballance

Matthias Heyne plays the trombone, and he wonders if his German accent means his style of playing is different to someone who speaks, say, New Zealand English as their first language. The University of Canterbury PhD student shows Alison Ballance how he's worked out a way to measure possible differences.

Stories from Our Changing World.

3:45 The Panel Pre-Show
