2:25 The Hillary Godmother - Alison Frye
60 years ago Gertrude and Percivil Hillary were totally unprepared for the flood of phone calls and well wishers who would descend on their South Auckland home when news came through about what their son and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay had achieved. Alison Frye was just 15 years old when she and her parents arrived at the Hillary home to all the excitement that day. Her father, a keen climber himself, had been helping Ed with the camera he would use to record this historic event. Alison and Sir Ed's First wife, Louise, were friends and she is Sarah Hillary's Godmother.
2:35 Reading - 11:30am on 29 May, 1953 was the time when Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay became the first men to stand on the summit of Mt. Everest. But what effect did that achievement have on the men themselves? That's one of the questions Sir Edmund addresses in today's instalment of Directions.

3.45 Pre Panel Show - Susan Baldacci
4:06 Scott York and Steve McCabe are our panelists today: on the agenda the NZIER warns again about the threat to our economy of the crazy Auckland house prices, but will the solution be worse? NZ as a place to live, latest international findings. We think it's a great place; others not so much now. Not trusting the Chinese - how much harm will that statement by Henry van der Heyden do, and what do we think he meant, if what he meant isn't what he said. Not paying school fees but paying the fee to go to the school ball - can you have it both ways? Sir Peter Jackson's new plane, and the possibly pointer in this purchase to the future of our air force and navy.
