1:15   President Obama's Visit To Cuba - Michael Voss

We're heading to Havana now, to speak about President Obama's historic visit. It's the first time an American leader has walked on Cuban soil since 1928.

1:25 Risky Places - Julian Grimmond

They're the people who get companies in and out of risky places, and look after film stars when they travel to conflict zones, high risk locations and remote wildernesses.  Queenstown's Global Film Solutions, has looked after productions featuring Bear Grylls, Anthony Bourdain and Ricky Gervais. The company assesses and manages risks of film productions in some of the world's most challenging environments. And it's one of two New Zealand finalists up for an international award next month. Julian Grimmond is the president and CEO of GFS Risk.

1:35 Raising Awareness With The Easter Kiwi - Rebecca Kemp

Australia has an alternative to the Easter Bunny, they've got the Easter Bilby, and have had since 1991. So, is it time New Zealand ditched the Easter Bunny and adopted the Easter Kiwi? The New Zealand Biosecurity Institute is calling for a more heroic icon for Easter, questioning its worthiness and villainous history. The president is Rebecca Kemp.

1:40 Favourite Album

One Man Band - James Taylor.

2:10 Not Solar - Dr Jan Wright  

The Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment is calling for people to take notice of a report suggesting that electric cars help combat climate change, but solar panels do little. The report by Concept Consulting looks at the impact of both electric cars and solar panels on New Zealand's carbon footprint. Dr Jan Wright is the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment. 

2:20 Great New Zealand Concerts - Dr Hook

Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show formed in New Jersey in 1967 and played around the greater New York area for years before picking up a recording contract. They have toured New Zealand a couple of time, the first when they were at their peak in 1977.  The tour took in a number of cities, including Hamilton and Palmerston North. This was the song which first brought them to the attention of the listening and, ultimately, the concert going public.

3:10 Feature Interview - Barbara Bradley Hagerty

Hollywood's version of a midlife crisis is simple: the spouse of 25 years is ditched.  Men buy expensive sports cars, women go on yoga retreats to Thailand.  Science has another  version of what happens in our 40's and 50's.  Author and former National Public Radio correspondent Barbara Bradley Hagerty felt  anxious and stuck in her 50's, on cruise control in her marriage, her career and life.  Ss she did her own investigation, talking to 400 people including scientists and researchers about living well at midlife.  The result is a book called "Life Reimagined: The Science, Art, and Opportunity of Midlife."

3:30 Our Changing World

Brook Waimarama Sanctuary in Nelson is about to become New Zealand's newest fenced sanctuary. Alison Ballance finds out what motivated David Butler to establish the Brook Waimarama Trust in 2004, Jim Livingstone takes her on a tour of the nearly completed 14.5 kilometre-long predator-proof fence, and volunteers Dave and Alistair explain why they spend so much of their free time helping out.
