2:10 The Foveaux Swim - Wayne Evans - It took him a few days to recover, but Invercargill masters swimmer, Wayne Evans has done just that after honouring the first person to swim across Foveaux Strait 50 years ago.

2:20 The Shergar Heist -  Julian Bedford of BBC Witness
It's 30 years now since kidnappers broke into the Ballymany Stud in the Republic of Ireland and stole the champion racehorse, Shergar. What happened to the big bay colt still remains a mystery.

3:33 Asian Report - In spite of pressures from family or faith within our Asian communities more Asians are coming out as gay.

That is, a lesbian and Filipino version of Justin Bieber. 

4:06 The Panel - on The Panel today are Karl du Fresne and Michael Deaker: The likely short-term future for Catholicism as the Pope resigns and the legacy of Benedict; the cost of Eden Park for Auckland ratepayers with the big debt hanging over it from the RWC; how dogs are cleverer than we think; the probable source of the Yahoo/xtra email hacking, which may set your mind at rest a bit actually regarding the need for password changes; and can you claim a constellation or a star for yourself as a private individual?
