2:10 Most musicians would do a deal with the devil for the opportunity to write a song for one of the world's most famous female recording artists.. But Matt Barus of Christchurch is remarkably matter of fact about writing a tune for Debbie Harry... AKA Blondie.. which features on her new record. The song is called 'I Want to Drag You Around" and it's not only on her new record - but it has also been named as record of the week on BBC 2 in the UK.
2:20 Proof now that you don't need big budgets and special effects to make a great movie. Curtis Vowell and his wife Sophie Henderson have a background in theatre... but until recently, neither of them had any experience in film making. On a chance, they submitted a script to the New Zealand Film Commission and were given the green light to shoot their first film.. a feature called 'Fantail'... which has screened in a couple of international film festivals and is about to open in cinemas nationwide. 'Fantail's' director Curtis Vowell tells the story.

3:10 Feature Interview - Scott Eyman (ex Costar already recorded). John Wayne's signature swagger and courage on screen made him synonymous with Western movies and America itself. A new book revels how the man born Marion Morrison created John Wayne and the lasting impact the actor has had on American conservative politics. John-Wayne-The-Life-and-Legend.
It's Buddha's birthday, enlightenment and final passing. Lynda's at the Buddhist Temple in Stokes Valley, Wellington to join in as hundreds of devotees to mark the celebrations.
