1:20 Mapping Rips

A new trial to make beach swimming safer has got the go-ahead. Surf Life Saving New Zealand, and software company Emsisoft, will use GPS data and drones to map rip currents and their behaviours. Rips are one of the biggest problems along New Zealand's coastline. Last year alone, seven people drowned as the result of a rip. Every year, lifeguards undertake an average of 1,200 rescues and around 85 per cent of those are the result of rips. Allan Mundy is SLSNZ national lifesaving manager.

Split Enz

Our Great New Zealand album today dates from 1976 and came from one of our more celebrated bands at the time.  They got together at Auckland University in the early 70's and, after auditioning themselves in music practice room 129, decided to form a band.  It was an unusual line up for a rock band, Guitar, Piano, Bass, Violin and Flute but that ensemble didn't last.  In 1973 after recording one song and doing a short tour to promote it, the three main protagonists; Brian, Jonathan and Phil progressed to a more electric sound, adding Drums, Sax and another Guitar.

3:10 Cat Warren: What the Dog Knows

In horror flicks, characters see dead people.  A German shepherd dog named Solo smells them. Science professor  Cat Warren (yes that's her real name), discovered Solo's unusual talent as a cadaver dog when searching for an outlet for his energy and determination as a puppy. Dogs are used to sniff out bombs, drugs and track suspects. Professor Warren looks at the science and training that goes into these canine/human partnerships in her book, What The Dog Knows: Scent, Science, and the Amazing Ways Dogs Perceive the World.

3:30 Science and environment stories
