2:10 Kiwi New Yorker Back on Track - Pauli Morgan - A year ago this week, Superstrom Sandy assaulted the East Coast of the United States, killing 285 people - 44 of them in New York City. Nelson native Pauli Morgan, who has lived in New York City for 23 years, ignored the evacuation order and stayed, escaping torrents of water that rushed in to the place where he was staying with surprising speed and verocity. He survived, but his Kiwi themed bar and restaurant, Nelson Blue, did not. The silver fern flag and arches with Maori carvings that defined this slice of New Zealand in Manhatten were destroyed. Now, a year later, progress is being made to re-open Nelson Blue.

2:20 'The Maori' - Dave Ransom - The names A. R Bannister and George Johns might have been right up there with New Zealand motorcycle pioneers, Burt Munro and John Britten, but an enemy torpedo sank their plans during the First World War. The two men from Gisborne designed and patented a motorcycle, built for New Zealand conditions. They called it 'The Maori'. They produced 20 of these motorcycles in London. The first shipment of the bikes to New Zealand met with disaster. Only One bike ever made it to New Zealand, and that one has never been found.
Now engineer Dave Ransom from North Taranaki is re-creating 'The Maori' with just one photo that has survived all these years.
2:30 Reading - We join Elizabeth McRae to continue Rachael King's award winning novel 'The Sound of Butterflies'
Knowledge is power, and in what is turning out to be a multi-faceted relationship, the urge to seek and use secrets and information grows stronger as we continue .

3:30 A New Transit Town - Lisa Thompson - From dairy farm to transition town - how one Auckland school is helping solve the region's housing shortage.
4:06 Jordan Williams and Penny Ashton are on The Panel: Their short thoughts on the chapter of accidents at Fonterra, the new thinking about alcohol abuse which seems to be a bit similar to old thinking about alcohol abuse. The man who makes predictions for America, it's an official Government post, his job is to see what dangers are coming - he may lose his job. Airline seats - are they too small? A rhetorical question for many. Well the Airbus company says "Hey, the seats need to be bigger." Now it's up to the airlines. Should Gary Glitter have a place in the history of glam rock? He has been excised from an important new compendium, he's just not there. And with the fuss about women wanting to drive in Saudi Arabia it's timely to reflect on what women aren't allowed to do in elsewhere in the world.
