2:10 The Silk Road Skiing Team - Blair Smith - It's the legendary thoroughfare across which Marco Polo and his ilk brought silks and spices back home to Europe from the East. Stretching from Venice to Beijing and active since hundreds of years before the birth of Christ, the Great Silk Road is one of the most famous, and ancient trading routes in the world.
It's also bounded by thousands of miles of mountainous terrain, from the Altai mountains of China, to the slopes of Turkey and Iran. Not a bad starting off point then, for ten young kiwis keen to do some exploring, and get some ski'ing in along the way. They also found the time to make a film about their adventures.
Aucklander Blair Smith is part of the Silk Road Ski'ing Team.
2:20 The Cuba Street Revival - Zoe George - Zoe takes us on an adventure through one part of Wellington that's definitely re-inventing itself. Cuba Street's dark alley ways haven't been a very appealing place to wander in the past, but the vibe down the Cuba Quarter is changing fast.

Two sisters come home to be with their father at the end of his life.

4:06 Mike Williams and Andrew Clay are on The Panel today. The new knighthoods, the tax laws that let the very rich off, the most popular song to sum up a life at funerals now, the new arrangement for control of the Urewera National Park, would Kim Dotcom's new Mega site be a good investment for Tainui, and people who've been to prison often go right back to prison. So is this an argument for getting rid of prisons or an argument for having plenty of them?
