The answer: The backing vocals. All had memorable backing vocals.
2:10 Big World, Small Country - Graeme Ball - In 1936 a New Zealand athlete had the opportunity to met Adolf Hitler just as the Berlin Olympics were about to get underway. His name was Clarrie Gordon, a featherweight boxer from Auckland with a mean right hook. And he threw that right hook at the Fuhrer... in jest, admittedly. The punch fell just inches short of Hitler's face. That is one of many little known stories about New Zealanders, and how we find ourselves in history's tides and torrents, and near the great events of the world somehow.
Big World, Small Country: The 20th Century & New Zealand's Place In It is a history textbook written by Northcote College head of social sciences, Graeme Ball.
2:20 Classic Caravaning - Vanessa Owen - A slice of New Zealand holidaying history is making a comeback.
Think back to the 60's and 70's .. so many New Zealanders had their holidays in a compact caravan that could be pulled by the family car. Vanessa Owen has refurbished classic caravans and is renting them out to holidaymakers in Northland.
2:30 Reading - Joe Bennett with another episode of Hello Dubai. Part eight called 'The Boss and Varoud'.
Joe learns about Rashid, the father of modern Dubai and meets Varood, an African Indian, who encapsulates the commercial globalisation that enshrines it. .

The Acronym Game
It's a four-letter acronym for a shopping demographic that buys a lot of kid's toys and clothes… and isn't a parent or grandparent.
Answer: What's a PANK? Professional Aunt, No Kids
3:30 Manatunga George Grey - David Steemson
They're finally putting names to some faces, thanks to an exhibition of photographs of Maori that have lain unidentified for over a hundred years.
4:06 Sir Bruce Slane is on The Panel today with Cas Carter - Violence of some sort against teachers in scools, nearly 30 incidents a day requiring ACC payouts, what do we do about it? The beggars on the streets of Auckland - what do we do about them? The rudeness or not of talking on the phone while you talk to people in shops. We discussed the problem of your garage blowing down in the Wellington gale, and the insurance company saying the rusty screws did it. Well in Christchurch there's the argument that the borer did it.
