2:10 The Water Car - Vincent Lowe - With petrol prices going higher and higher... we all dream of a car that runs on water.
Vincent Lowe from Paraparaumu is living the dream. He bought a hydrogen on demand s kitset system from the United States for his 2005 Toyota Corolla. The system uses mixture of distilled water and a little postassium hydroxide to make hydrogen... and that is added to his petrol to make a tank of petrol go further. This concept has been around for some time. Now, at age 76.. finally has a system for his vehicle.
2:20 The Norwegian Whaling Station - Matthew Schmidt - On the eastern coast of Stewart Island... in a large natural harbour called Paterson Inlet... Norwegian whalers set up shop in the early 1920's.
In this remote place, only accessible by water.. there was once machine shops, a huge workshop, boiler room, a cookhouse a bunkhouse and more. They abandoned the site in 1932 and there is very little left of what was once a thriving station.
In just a few weeks, the first ever archeological survey of the Norwegian Whaling Station will be taking place.
They will not only be looking for what they can find on the land... they'll be diving for historic treasure under the water too.
Zealand Historic Places Trust area archeologist Matthew Schmidt will be leading the survey.
2:30 Reading - Skin To Skin' explores the lives of people in cross-cultural marriages in New Zealand. Today - the story of a Pakeha woman who knows what it's like to share the weight of tribal obligations placed on a Maori leader.

4:06 On The Panel after 4 are Denise L'Estrange-Corbet today, and Simon Pound. We shall talk briefly about the latest political poll, and giving bail to people charged with offences of violence. We'll ask whether the Rena should be left alone to topple off the reef eventually of its own accord. The new theory - seeing as meteor strikes are on our minds - the new theory out of the Australian National University about the asteroid six miles wide that landed in Australia and what that did to the planet. It was nothing good. The role of Google, highlighted in recent court cases - just the search engine, the messenger, or should it be taking an active moral/ethical stance online? The Pistorius case - the initial statement from the defendant.
