1:20 Eyes East - Evan Smith

A new television series is set to broadcast on CTV. And its creators are hoping it brings a shared community vision, of how to rebuild East Christchurch.

Evan Smith is the programme manager of Eastern Vision.

1:25 Rosetta Spacecraft - Sergei Gulyaev

If you ever wondered how to measure a comet, you're just about to find out. The Rosetta space craft successfully landed a probe on a comet (Comet-67P) last year. And current predictions are that it's 10 billion tonnes - or about the size of Mount Everest. But, scientists think this may be wrong. Professor Sergei Gulyaev is the founder and director of AUT's Institute for Radio Astronomy and Space Research. He's been helping the European Space Agency to find out just how big it is.

1:30 BBC Witness - Ska

Jamaica is famous for reggae. But before Reggae came Ska. And in our BBC world service history programme 'Witness' today, we're going back in time to remember the birth of Ska. Rebecca Kesby has been talking to a man who recalls how ska emerged from very humble beginnings just as the country was winning its independence.
