2:10 The MH370 Mystery - Nigel Cawthorne: It's been dubbed the biggest aviation mystery of all time.
The plane's wreckage and black box still haven't been located, but the first book has already been released about missing Malaysian Airliner MH370. "Flight MH370: The Mystery" by British author Nigel Cawthorne offers a new theory as to what might have happened to the doomed flight....which disappeared on March 8th with 239 passengers and crew on board, including two New Zealanders.
2:20 Z-Nail Gang - Kylie DellaBarca Steel: A Coromandel community is being thanked for getting behind a film its makers say couldn't have been made without them. 'Z-Nail Gang' is based on events that took place in the Coromandel during the 1980s' mining protests. Described as story where the outlaw kiwi spirit of 'Goodbye Pork Pie' meets the David vs Goliath battle of 'The Castle', it's made by Pukehina couple Anton and Kylie DellaBarca Steel
But they say it couldn't have happened without funding and support from their own community. Anton and Kylie are saying thank you with a sneak preview in Te Puke this weekend.

3:45 Melanie Phipps with what the world's talking about: The lawsuit over Stairway To Heaven and another musical topic, the robot band. Speaking of robots, the unexpected downside of driverless cars. What to watch out for in post-natal depression according to new research, and the trouble the FBI has recruiting hackers - it's to do with their personal habits. No-one expected this, either. The new McDonalds mascot, the possible link between prostate cancer and an STD, and Shane Warne's search for a man with a t-shirt, at a game many New Zealanders will have been at.
