2:10  The Shirley Temple Story - Shirley Piddington
She was the dimpled darling of depression: Shirley Temple starred in 35 films and is the biggest little star Hollywood ever produced.    Shirley Temple's influence on New Zealand is the subject of a research project by a screen and media studies professor at the University of Waikato. His research led him to Shirley Piddington in Timaru.  Now, almost 80 years later, Shirley Piddington can still recall the excitement of the contest and the joy Shirley Temple brought to moviegoers in an era when joy was often in short supply.

2:20 Ches and Dale -  Brian Borland and Gordon Hubbard
No-one can deny the place a humble jingle for cheese has in the hearts of New Zealanders. In 1969, two cartoon characters wearing gumboots and black singlets, the boys from down on the farm, Ches and Dale helped turn Chesdale processed cheese into a product that is worth 25 million dollars today.   The famous Chesdale Cheese song about New Zealand's Finest Cheddar made better is a fine example of true Kiwiana. So it has earned a plae as the  first song on a new CD.. called Kiwiana Goes Pop.... Brian Borland and Gordon Hubbard, the voices of Ches and Dale talks with Jim Mora.

The prostitution legislation - is it working or not? The world finds out we're not 100% pure middle earth, on the eve of the release of The Hobbit. The importance of driver fatigue in road accidents. If you invest in a ponzi scheme you thought was legitimate finance company investment, should you then pay the money back? .. and the principal of Christchurch Girls' High tries to get her job back.
