1:15 8 Months To Mars - Movie director, Andrew Adamson jumps aboard our space capsule to Mars - his latest film, Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away is out later in the week.

2:10   The Great White Shark - Ocean Ramsay - Great white sharks, the ocean's most dangerous and deadly predators.
We were scared of them long before Steven Spielberg's film Jaws, but that cemented their reputation because it showed us just how big they can be, more than six metres long and up to two and a half thousand kilos.
So when a video hit the internet a few days ago of a woman swimming alongside and riding a great white shark - you can watch it on our Facebook page - people questioned her sanity.
But Honolulu-based shark conservationist and diver, Ocean Ramsey, the woman featured in the clip, says she wants to show a different side of the great white shark.

2:20 The Castlepoint Lighthouse - Grant Hinchcliff  was the very last lighthouse keeper at the small Waiarapa beach town of Castlepoint.
Grant manned the lighthouse at Castlepoint from from 1972 to 1988, when it became automated. He's since moved to Sydney, but has been back in New Zealand to celebrate the 100-hundred year centenary of the Castlepoint lighthouse, which was held over the weekend.

2:30 Reading - In our book reading of 'Skin To Skin'   so far, we have heard from three families. The Walkers, the Hirschfelds and the Pauls. Today we heard from another couple, the Taylors, about how they have found cross-cultural marriage in Aotearoa.

2:45 Feature Album -  Rust Never Sleeps - Neil Young

3:12 Author slot - Our feature author is journalist, Will Storr (pron:Store) whose written a book dedicated to people who don't let facts get in the way of their beliefs - from UFO spotters to holocaust deniers.

3:35 Our Changing World - If you're setting a mouse trap you use peanut butter or cheese. And possum trappers use flour or something cinnamon-scented to lure possums in. But what about using sounds instead of smell?
While Matt Kavermann was carrying out his PhD at Lincoln University he got intrigued by the idea that noise might attract animals, and he tells Alison Ballance about the sounds he came up with.

4:06 Raybon Kan and Mai Chen are on The Panel. The Christchurch school closures, the Telecom email saga, the disaster that keeps on affecting tens of thousands of New Zealanders. The baffling tragedy of Oscar Pistorius, the question of whether you are under-insured or over-insured, the need to win Lotto to get ahead, and hoarding disorder.
