2:10 The Hobbit - Royd Tolkien
When this guest was nine years old... he started reading a book that sat on the shelf in his family farm in Wales. The book was The Hobbit and the boy is Royd Tolkien, the great grandson of it's author, JRR Tolkien. Royd Tolkien was just 4 years old when his great grandfather died, but he has always had a passion for the Lord of the Rings books and The Hobbit. Peter Jackson gave him a part as a Gondorian ranger in the Return of the Kings and he has a cameo in the Air New Zealand Hobbit inspired safety video.

In the New Zealand Society Series, what do you consider to be the tools of your trade? Pipe Organ maestro, John Wells on playing one of the oldest instruments in the western world.
2:30 Reading - The Model-T for in our serial set 100 years ago, is near Raurimu, following what was once a good road. The road has deteriorated badly in the four rain-soaked years since the main trunk rail line was completed, and rail became the favoured way for travellers. The result is a whole new set of obstacles for our Motor Pioneers.

The Kepler track is considered one of the New Zealand's great walks but tomorrow more than 400 people will line up to run it. The 25th annual Kepler Challenge takes runners on a spectacular but grueling 60km race. Three teachers from Fiordland College who are keen runners started the event in 1988 with just 150 runners and it has grown from there.
