2:10 The Footpath That Glows in the Dark - Hamish Scott
The world is beating a well lit path to New Zealander, Hamish Scott's door for his invention that makes footpaths glow in the dark. He calls the technology "Starpath". It's a spray on product that absorbs light during the day and when the sun goes down, it glows, lighting the way for walkers at night. Hamish Scott lives in the UK now. He trialled the innovative surface in a park for the city of Cambridge and the reviews have been glowing. Now other cities around the world want a Starpath too.
2:20 Bevan's 1952 Chipmunk - Bevan Dewes - Before he could legally drive passengers on the road, 19 year old Bevan Dewes could take people for a ride in the sky with his commercial pilot's license. Aviation is in his blood. He is an instructor for East Canterbury Aviation on Rangitata Island, and now he may be the youngest person in the country to own a vintage aircraft. He's got a 1952 De Havilland Chipmunk. It's the same plane Prince Phillip learned to fly in when it was brand new in 1952.
2:30 Reading - Our 2.30 story continues Rachel King's novel 'The Sound of Butterflies' with a growing awareness on several fronts. Sophie Edgar has come to the conclusion that the key to her future lies in discovering what happened to her Husband in Brazil, and she makes it clear that she does not want others manipulating the situation.
