1:15 Pharmac Petition - Karen Brown

A petition calling on the Government to fund the melanoma treatment, Keytruda, has been presented to Parliament today. Australia, Canada and Britain subsidise the treatment, but Pharmac has given it low priority, saying it needs further studies into the drug's effectiveness. RNZ's health correspondent, Karen Brown, was at Parliament.

1:20 Scrapping Takeaway Coffee Cups - Mark Lane

There'll be no more takeaway coffee cups at Otago Polytechnic's Eden Cafe. Instead, they're scrapping paper and busting out ceramic and china cups. It's an initiative that aims at reducing its carbon footprint, and they're hoping it'll take off. Polytechnic functions and catering executive chef, Mark Lane, is behind the initiative.

1:25 How We Recycle - Greg Roughan

The recycling guru and former editor of Green Ideas magazine, Greg Roughan, discusses recycling in New Zealand.

1:35 Auckland Regional Parks Turn 50 - Wayne Carlson

Campgrounds across Auckland are celebrating 50 years of regional parks this weekend. And Auckland Council is having a Big Camp Out, to mark the occasion. Senior Ranger, Wayne Carlson, is with us from Waiheke, to talk about the history of Auckland's regional parks.

2:10 Revamping The BA - Professor Richard Shaw

The value of an arts degree is often debated. With people asking; should we be focusing our training in growth sectors, such as technology, and what sort of success can our arts graduates expect to have. One man who's out to bust the 'myths' about the value of a Bachelor of Arts, is Professor Richard Shaw. He's spearheading a 'refresh' of the BA for Massey University.

2:20 Great New Zealand Concerts

Today's Great NZ Concert is Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' 1980 tour of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.       

3:10 Feature Interview - Maria Konnikova  

Maria is the New York Times-bestselling author of The Confidence Game and Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes. She is a contributing writer for The New Yorker, where she writes a regular column with a focus on psychology and culture, and is currently working on an assortment of non-fiction and fiction projects.

3:20 BBC Witness - Back to Africa 

At the end of the 19th Century, African-Americans in the southern states of the US faced a wave of political and racial violence. Lynchings reached a peak. Black people were prevented from voting and subject to laws which enforced racial segregation. In response, thousands sought to leave the US and travel to Liberia. More emigrants left from Arkansas than any other southern state. We hear from Professor Kenneth Barnes of the University of Central Arkansas. He uncovered a fascinating series of letters that reveal why so many black people in his region dreamed of Liberia and what happened to them when they got there.

3:30 Our Changing World - Deterring Sharks with Electricity  

To mark Seaweek we head to the Portobello marine lab to meet PhD student Sunkita Howard, from the University of Otago. Sunkita takes Alison Ballance fishing for spiny dogfish, and tells her that she is trying to develop a shark deterrent device that would use a weak electrical field to discourage the small sharks from eating the baited hooks used in ling longline fisheries.
