Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan for Monday 11 February 2013
1:10 Best Song Ever Written - Clare Ryan of Selwyn Huts nominated "Poor Wandering Stranger" (trad.) sung by Andreas Scholl.
1:15 8 Months To Mars - Ginette McDonald
2:10 The War Parcels - Roger Button - An English man and his wife have finally arrived in New Zealand to acknowledge an act of kindness that came from this country more than 60 years ago. In 1948, a group of schoolchildren in Invercargill sent food parcels to families along the coast of Norwich in England who had been bombed by the Luftwafe in World War Two.
Roger Button was one of the children who received a parcel, and he has never forgotten it.
2:20 Kangaroo Dundee - Chris Barnes - He makes for an unlikely heart throb at first glance.
A kangaroo whisperer who lives in a tin-roof shack in the australian outback, with his beloved Jills and Joeys for company.
But Chris 'Brolga' Barnes, aka 'Kangaroo Dundee' has become the object of affection for thousands of British women after appearing on TV there. The BBC made a two part documentary about his Kangaroo orphanage in Alice Springs, and now Chris is receiving daily marriage proposals from all sorts of women keen to assist him in caring for marsupials.
2:30 Reading - 'Skin To Skin' explores the lives of people in cross-cultural marriages in New Zealand. And today, we're hearing about the Hirschfelds - whose Australian father Charl came to New Zealand in 1955 and soon afterwards fell in love with Ngawiki, a young Ngāti Porou woman from Rangitukia on the East Coast.

2:45 Feature Album - Fire It Up - Joe Cocker (2012)
3:10 Feature Author - Daniel Stahl - German historian Daniel Stahl's book, Nazi Hunt: South America's Dictatorships and the Avenging of Nazi Crimes, published just as Germany remembers this week's 80th anniversary of the Nazis' accession to power and the world marks Holocaust Day, is based on extensive research in European and South American archives. It comes to the shameful conclusion that key officials on both continents, including the courts, police and governments, were reluctant to track down Nazi war criminals and even spent decades actively preventing their prosecution
3:30 Our Changing World - Veronika Meduna
Just north of New Zealand, in the Kermadec trench, the ocean floor plunges more than 10 kilometres deep.
We used to think that nothing could live down there, but amazingly, some creatures manage to thrive at these cold, dark, bone-crushing depths. An international science team just returned from an expedition during which they crash-landed a metal frame festooned with the latest scientific gadgets to catch and film deep-sea creatures.
4:06 On The Panel today are Sam Johnson and Scott Yorke. The idea of a living wage to try and stem NZ's growing poverty, the Sonny Bill Williams fight and its implications for sports betting. The new ways we consume media now, to use a phrase I can't quickly think of an alternative for, with reference to both the Seven Sharp TV show and the NZ Listener. what's with all the spam please Xtra? Nasty, new, clever spam too. And who did drive that van in Kenya? Does everyone really not know?
