2:10 Eurovision Song Contest - Dominic Smith
They're gearing up for it in England, in Ireland, in Scotland and in Wales. They're gearing up across Western Europe, and Scandinavia, and in the former Soviet States.
Two months out from the grand final, and preparations are underway in earnest for the Eurovision song contest.
Come May, 39 performers from Switzerland to Slovenia will gather together in Malmo, Sweden to sing their songs and hold their breath collectively as the judges announce a winner, and perhaps, award an infamous 'nul points'
Dominic Smith is a former Eurovision producer for the BBC, now living in New Zealand.
2:20 Massey Study - Dr Claire Matthews
Knowing how to make a million is one thing, it's quite another to be able to show your children how to do the same.
And the wealthiest amongst us are not necessarily teaching their descendents the secrets to their success.
That's the finding of a new study in Massey University, which shows that rich people often fail to pass on their financial literacy skills to their children. This despite the fact that many are concerned their heirs won't manage what they inherit very well.
Dr Claire Matthews supervised this piece of research.

4:06 On The Panel today are Neil Miller and Lindsey Dawson. Mondayisation of holidays, the point at which the law should become involved with your parenting style, the imbroglio at Harvard university over a situation potentially germaine to many of us - someone's sending out whistleblowing emails so they trawl through everyone's emails to find out who. The amazing case really of the former British cabinat minister and his wife off to jail together because of what began as a demerit points misdemeanor while driving the car. The big dry, and the likely hurt it'll cause the economy. The new diets from Otago University designed to get our salt intake down, but how bad is salt for you, really? That will probably do us to be going on with.
