He says recent disasters such as the sinkings of the South Korean ferry Sewol and the Italian cruise ship Costa Concordia, reveal continuing problems over the deployment of lifeboats. And he says cost cutting is also a common thread ..particularly so in the case of the Rena disaster here.

3:30 Sight Singing App - Ruth Beran: Sight singing from music is a difficult skill to learn at home because the singer never knows if they've hit the right note. To combat this problem Judy Bellingham, from the Department of Music at the University of Otago, and Geoff Wyvill, from the Department of Computer Science, are collaborating to develop an app for sight singing, as Ruth Beran discovers.
3:45 With What The World's Talking About today, Zara Potts: Greenpeace's financial setback, how many steps a day you should be walking, if possible; a big study into the effects of Ecstasy, short-term and long-term. The psychology of food cravings, and it's a bit like the psychology of drug cravings. The imported honey that's not honey, the wonderful clean Japanese football fans, the cancers you get from sitting down all day, not meaning to sound flippant about it, and the Swedish city that wants to ban homework.
