2:10 Pearl's Refurbished Home - Craig Cooper - 92 Year old Pearl Sanger could not have imagined how fortunate she was when her home was burgled and then torched while she lay ill in hospital in July.
Burglars took her TV, her jewelry, including a ring that belonged to her mother, from the home she has lived in for the past 30 years in Tikipunga near Whangarei.
But Pearl is lucky. Stories in the local paper, the Northern Advocate, touched the community and donations came pouring in: Furniture, two weeks free accommodation at a rest home, and even author, Lee Child sent a personally autographed copy of his latest Jack Reacher book.
Craig Cooper, editor of the Northern Advocate, coordinated many of the donations.
2:20 Fulbright New Zealand - Lisa Thompson - This year Fulbright New Zealand celebrates 65 years of educational and cultural exchange between New Zealand and the United States. New Zealand Society explores why the programme’s founder, Senator James William Fulbright, thought educational exchange was the perfect vehicle for achieving a peaceful future for the world.

4:06 On The Panel today, together for the first time on a regular Panel, Michele A'Court and Jeremy Elwood - the Americas Cup with our go-to guy Matt Sheehan; Mr Maryatt's departure from his CEO job in Christchurch; how popular are you? Did the Indian security guard killed in his first day on the job get justice? And this is interesting. Has the tide turned with how we perceive sportswomen? Are we seeing women in sport now as creatures of talent and individuality rather than just fodder for the male gaze? Sex sells, as they say, but is it not selling so well now?
Halftime Link - How Popular Are You
Even American billionaires are on board for Team New Zealand. US billionaire Jim Clark flying a huge NZ flag.
