And with the danger of the war itself fading away, they're controlling his life in a way that can continue into peace-time.

3:40 The Maadi Cup - Dudley Storey: Thousands of high school students and their families have descended on Lake Ruataniwha near Twizel this week for the Secondary School rowing championships
This year's Maadi Cup is the biggest in the regatta's 67 year history, with 125 schools competing.
The finals are taking place today and tomorrow. Former olympic gold medalist Dudley Storey has been going to the regatta since 1955.
4:06 Duncan Webb and Julia Hartley Moore are on The Panel and on the agenda today the report on the economic benefit of the Americas Cup to us, the evident benefit apparently of the Hobbit, is the Auckland mayor vacillating over money needed by the Auckland Rescue Helicopter. We'll play you the sound of a viola expected to fetch 45 million dollars at auction and ask what instrument you would want to hear if there were only one instrument... your suggestions welcome...What else? University cheats, can the Government possibly build the new homes it's promising, and is it okay for a church to make claims for its holy oil?
