8:40 Feature interview: Sir Howard Morrison
In December last year Sir Howard Morrison was on the programme, talking with Chris Laidlaw about celebrating 50 years in the entertainment business. Today we'll replay that interview, remembering Sir Howard, who died on Thursday.
Mediawatch this week asks if farmers getting a fair shake in the media these days - and if not, is it their own fault? The programme also looks at the forces changing international photojournalism; what our politicians put out on Twitter - and how even in this day and age TV news shows just can't help themselves when there's a bit of bare flesh on display.
Produced and presented by Colin Peacock and Jeremy Rose.
9:45 Sunday Outlook: The PM at the UN
Political reporter Julian Robins is with John Key on his current visit to New York. He talks to Chris Laidlaw about the giant talk-fest that is the UN General Assembly, and how New Yorkers deal with the drama in their city.
10:06 Sunday People: Dame Hazel Genn
Dame Hazel Genn caused a public spat and created front page news in the UK last year when she delivered a series of high-profile lectures that attacked what she saw as the downgrading of civil justice, the degradation of civil court facilities and the diversion of cases to private dispute resolution. Mediation, she says, has little to do with access to justice. "Mediation is not about just settlements. It is just about settlement." She talks to Chris Laidlaw the situation in the UK and its relevance to New Zealand.
Dame Hazel Genn is the 2009 NZ Law Foundation Distinguished Visiting Fellow. She is Dean of Laws, Professor of Socio-Legal Studies and co-director of the Centre for Empirical Legal Studies in the Faculty of Laws at University College London.
