4:06 Tony Doe and Sapna Samant are on The Panel: We'll be keeping an eye on the weather, more about the missing Boeing 777 as the Malaysians say not the plane didn't keep flying on its engines. Both the past of the internet as we celebrate 25 years of the World Wide Web which we've been doing this week, and also look ahead 25 years to the way we'll be living. Getting rid of rats, and for that matter stoats and rabbits. Is it time to reintroduce bounties? Chats as time permits about rescuing the Auckland rescue helicopter, the OCR (a bit more on that), David Cunliffe's speech today and baby boomers selling their houses.
