2:10 War Time Gold - Alfred Sasako - There's a huge cache of war-time gold lying at the bottom of the Pacific, and the race is on to find it. That's according to one journalist in the Solomon Islands. Alfred Sasako is a journalist, and former government Press Secretary based in Honiara. For the last few months, he's been chasing a story about a legendary trove of japanese gold, still lying on board a sunken ship just past the island of Santa Isabel, in a spot long known as 'The Slot.' The gold is now the subject of a furious hunt by two rival groups of treasure hunters, says Alfred Sasako..
2:30 Reading - "Jumping Ship" is an essay based on Glenn Colquhoun's time living in the small community of Te Tii in the Bay of Islands. He went there 'to learn how to engage' with Maori, and there he met Aunty Rongo, an old woman with a deteriorating hip. As Aunty Rongo's mobility decreased, he recalls, so Glen's mobility increased.
