2:10 Nelson Mandela tribute - Helen Clark - We knew it was coming, but still it was a jolt today, a shock, as the world heard with great sadness that Nelson Mandela, the warrior turned peacemaker, the anti-apartheid champion and father of the new South Africa has died at the age of 95. Former New Zealand Prime Minister and now head of the United Nations Development programme, Helen Clark talks with Jim Mora
2:20 Christmas Windows - Caroline Trevella - They line up outside the shop windows at Kirkcaldie and Stains department store in Wellington every day to have a peek at something special. The Christmas display in the windows, with polar bears and pohutakawa, kiwis, Santa and the elves in their workshop, is nothing less than enchanting. Caroline Trevella is the creator and she's been working on the window display from her own workshop for months. Shop windows are one of her specialties.. she created the Christmas windows at Ballantynes in Christchurch for many years too.
2:30 Reading - Paul Horan with the final episode of 'In the Land of the Dancing Kings'.
South of Colombo is Galle. It is a world apart from most of the rest of Sri Lanka. It is also an area that was hit by the Boxing day tsunami of 2004

Christie's Law - have we made progress on bail conditions or not? The world's hardest-ever tongue twister, purportedly, we can tell you what it is, if of course we can pronounce it. Discussions too on having lunch in tapu locations, the success or not of the 90-day employment law, the state of Auckland's berms now that the council's not mowing them, and foreign ownership of land.
