2:10 Tennis Great - Ruia Morrison-Davy
From Rotorua to centre court at Wimbleton, Ruia Morrison Davy's passion for tennis took her all the way to the top echelons of the sport. In 1957, at the age of just 21, the young girl from Te Kotu surprised the world when she made it to the quarter finals of the Wimbleton Open, making history in the process as the first maori woman to compete.
She followed that stunning debut by qualifying for the Round of 16 in each of the three years that followed, and had a decade long career before retiring from the game in the 1970's.
But her contribution to women's tennis in this country has never been forgotten, and now plans are afoot to send her back to Wimbleton next year as a guest of honour.
2:20 Mutiny on the Bounty - Simon Watts of BBC Witness
In 1789, one of the most famous naval mutinies of all time took place near Tahiti. Mutineers led by a young officer called Fletcher Christian took control of the British ship, casting its commander, William Bligh, adrift in the uncharted South Seas. Using contemporary eye-witness accounts, Witness pieces together what happened.
2:30 Reading - 'Shanghai Sheba: the China Monologues' - written and read by Wellington artist Sheba Williams.
Sheba was recruited to perform with her band in a Shanghai nightclub with the unlikely name of 'Heaven'. She takes us there in this week's 2.30 story 'Shanghai Sheba'.
2:45 Feature Album - Sunken Condos - the new LP from Donald Fagen (2012)
3:10 Dangerous Work - Jon L. Lellenberg
We talk about a new book by Sherlock Holmes creater Arthur Conan Doyle... not about mystery and murder... but his voyage to the Arctic, aboard the whale ship, SS Hope.
Jon L. Lellenberg is the representative of Conan Doyle Estate in the USA and is editor of the book, Dangerous Work.
3:30 Our Changing World - Building Bridges - Alison Ballance
The challenge is to build a bridge using just MDF and glue - and then test it to destruction.
3.45: The Pre Panel Show - Noelle McCarthy
4:06 The Panel - Sam Johnson (ChCh) and Gordon Brown (New Plymouth)
The Royal Tour, the Auckland brothel again, the idea that schools can have shifts, morning school and afternoon school as rolls rise. Maximise existing buildings and grounds instead of building new institutions. Making companies more ethical, and what superstitions have you got?
