2:10 Record Attempt - Mick Paul
Ever since he was a boy Mick Paul of Wanganui has dreamed of racing on that mecca for those who want to go faster than ever on a motobike.....the Bonneville salt Flats in Utah, USA.
Of course the flats were made famous in the film about the legendary motorbike speedster from Invercargill, Burt Munro...whose land speed record for under 1000cc pre-1960's bikes has stood for 45 years.
Burt Munro is a hero to Mick Paul, but that won't stop him trying to beat Burt's record next year when he travels to the States with his 1958 Triumph motorcycle.
2:20 NZ Society - Missing Something?
Amelia Nurse continues her series, Missing Something, which looks at abilities and senses some people don't have and how it affects them. Today – tone deafness.

Movie Review - Sarah McMullan
The Hobbit and the new Pierce Brosnan, Love is all you Need.
3.40 A World War 2 bomber makes its long awaited appearance at a fundraiser at the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre from 10 o'clock tomorrow morning.
Its taken 10 years and a global search for parts to re-condition this World War II Anson Mk1 twin-engined plane, which its owners say is the only one in flying condition in the world. Jim Mora talks with the man who helped bring the Anson to Marlborough, Graham Orphan - a trustee at the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre, and an aircraft broker.
4:06 The Panel - Chris Trotter and Tim Watkin are on The Panel with us today. We'll talk about compensation for David Bain again, and what should happen now. The transport future of Auckland; Len Brown thinks one thing, Gerry Brownley thinks another. The idea of pharmacists handing 12-year-old girls the morning after pill, a Research NZ poll on how we're all feeling at Christmas, emotionally and financially, and the simplest of tests you can do on yourself to assess your likely longevity.
