1:10 First Song

'Voices' by Posse. 

1:15 Geoff Walker Detained - Ron Mark

New Zealand photographer, Geoff Walker, has been arrested in Uganda. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs says it's aware of reports that a New Zealander is being questioned by the police in Uganda. It says the New Zealand Embassy, Addis Adaba, is following it up with authorities. New Zealand First's deputy leader, Ron Mark, speaks to Jesse Mulligan. 

1:20 HMS Protector - Sally Murphy

Lyttleton has a somewhat unusual vessel in port. It's HMS Protector, the United Kingdom's ice patrol vessel stopping in as part of its first visit to this part of the world.

1:25 Red Pandas - Helen Watson

Auckland Zoo has two new arrivals - red panda twins. Mother Bo gave birth to them at 3am Tuesday morning, and they're being watched closely by both her and Zoo staff. So far, things are looking good. Auckland Zoo Carnivore keeper Helen Watson is with me now.

1:30 Summer Sounds - Sarah Johnson

What are the sounds of a Kiwi summer? Cicadas? Surf? The jingle of the Mr Whippy ice-cream van? Sarah Johnston at Nga Taonga Sound & Vision has been listening to some recordings from the sound archives which evoke memories of summers past.

1:40 Favourite Album

Tea for the Tillerman by Cat Stevens.

2:10 BBC Witness - Chairman Mao's Little Red Book

In 1966, the collected thoughts of China's communist leader became an unexpected best-seller around the world. A compendium of pithy advice and political instructions from Mao Tse-tung, it was soon to be found on student bookshelves everywhere.

2:20 Roadmap - Whangapoua

Today's off the beaten track locale was a closely held secret until Britain's Guardian Newspaper spilt the beans on one of her pristine beaches.  Then the Lonely Planet Guide got in on the act and named it among the 10 best uninahabited beaches in THE WORLD. 

3:10 Technology And Innovation

Our technology correspondent Paul Brislen is here to tell us about a future without passwords, Netflix' territorial issues and Apple's odd tax situation. We'll meet our Innovator Of The Week, who wants to help tourists connect with locals wherever they travel. Paul will also answer your questions about technology.  

3:25 The Wireless

Mava Moayyed drops in to talk about her article in RNZ's online magazine The Wireless, about Charlie Camp: the punk drummer and budding builder who is smashing every stereotype about what girls "should" do.

3:35 Our Changing World

The Africa to Aotearoa project, the first-ever survey of the genetic diversity of New Zealand's current population, draws on the analysis of genetic markers from around 2000 New Zealanders to reveal their migration histories. Veronika Meduna meets University of Otago anthropologist Lisa Matisoo-Smith in Auckland, as she returns results to the Dalmatian community.
