2:10  D Day - Jonathan Tucker: Today is the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the largest seaborne invasion in modern history, in which no New Zealand ground forces took part - or at least, that's been the accepted view.
New Zealanders were definitely involved, serving on the ships and planes which carried more than 150 thousand troops to France.
But one amateur historian believes he has proof to show that one New Zealander did actually set foot on a beach, Gold Beach to be precise, one of the five sectors of Normandy coast targetted by Allied forces.
Southlander Jonathan Tucker says the discovery of three simple words in the diary of Brigadier James Hargest could change New Zealand history.
Simon talks with the amateur local historian and drama teacher at James Hargest College, Jonathan Tucker.

3:45  Panel Pre-Show - Bridget Mills
Bridget Mills today with what the world's talking about: The Canadian shooter who's killed the three police officers. Abundant social media evidence of his psychological derailment beforehand. Do we need the algorithms to find these people? The perfect seat in a plane, an ear is being grown in a museum in the style of Vincent Van Gogh and using family DNA, why hungry people prefer bigger partners, and why it's a bad idea to go into a zoo wearing a gorilla suit.
