2:10  The Boat Vet - Duncan Smith: Duncan Smith grew up on a farm in Turakina, just south of Whanganui, where the farm life gave him a good grounding in his chosen career as a veterinarian. But Duncan always had a hankering to run off to sea. So when the family farm was sold, that's exactly what he and his wife Kate and their three children did. They bought a fifty-one-foot boat in Kerikeri and lived on it while working out just how to sail her, and when they were eventually comfortable enough to leave our shores, they sailed for Vanuatu and then onto Australia, which is where they are now anchored.

2:20 Early Settler - Barrie Allom: Eighty-year-old Barrie Allom often cleaned up the essay writing competitions at school, but it took him sixty years to become a published author. He's now just released his third book -"Dear Tyrant" -  a biography of his great-grandfather Albert James Allom - an early settler who came to New Zealand in 1842.
The book is more than just a simple biography however. Using archive materials, letters and diaries - the book is also an historic look at pioneer New Zealand and it features some interesting cameo appearances from the likes of Edward Gibbon Wakefield
