2:10 The First Tennis Superstar - Ron Palenski - One writer in the UK is calling him, the forgotten great sportsman. Was New Zealand's Anthony Wilding the first tennis superstar. 100 years ago, Wilding won the last of four successive men's singles titles at Wimbledon (between 1910 and 1913) Sports historian Ron Palenski talks with Jim Mora about Tony Wilding.
2:20 Angora Rabbits - Leonie Lamont - At Roselands farm in Waitomo, shearing is a serious business. And with a flock of over a hundred, Roseland's owner Leonie Lamont spends a lot of time with her clipper in hand. But shearing at Roseland's requires a particularly delicate touch. That's because it isn't sheep they're shearing, but an altogether smaller, and more nimble type of livestock. Rabbits. Purebred german angora rabbits, to be precise.
Roselands is New Zealands last angora rabbitry.
2:30 Reading - Part 2 of Joe Bennett's reading from his book 'Hello Dubai'.

3:10 Tune Your Engine - Deadbeat Dads - Tim Nelson - Two Harvard sociologists are challenging the 'Deadbeat Dad' stereotype, the father deserting the mother of their children, leaving her to bear the burden of raising them alone. Kathryn Edin and Timothy J. Nelson have written 'Doing the Best I Can'.
3:30 In today's Asian Report; ever dreamed about life as a Ninja? Well now you can join a group and become one, so long as you can sing and dance. Lynda Chanwai-Earle is in Auckland to find out more.
4:06 On The Panel today are Jonathan Krebs and Tim Watkin. Parking wardens, their new technological array, and the increasing harrassment of them. More on the erosion of privacy, one of our most frequent discussions - the new app for instance that just sits dormant on your smart phone but when it needs to it can record the conversation you had with someone five minutes ago. Commuting makes you unhappy. What do we do with the drunken sailors? Famous Brazilian strikers on opposite sides of the World Cup hosting argument. And what enables Nick Wallenda to walk that tightrope - is he just braver than the rest of us or is it something else?
