2:20  The Port Arthur Massacre -  Paul Shuster of BBC Witness: In April 1996, lone gunman Martin Bryant killed 35 people in the Australian town of Port Arthur.

2:30  NZ Reading - Episode 3 of  Into the Wider World.

A sequel to our story yesterday about the elderly people in south Auckland being burgled and no CCTV solution for them, the famous journalist, Robert Fisk has something to say about the big Gallipoli commemoration next year, and our attendance at it. Should the salaries be revealed of people who work for charities?
