An audio illusion - once you know what you're hearing you'll hear it:
2:10 The 'Kid's Literature Quiz' - Wayne Mills: Twenty-three years ago Wayne Mills was attending his childrens' intermediate school prizegivings when he realised that among all the certificates being handed out for sports and other activities there were no prizes being awarded for reading.
Being a senior lecturer focused on children and their literacy - he soon struck upon an idea to reward young readers - in the form of a quiz.

2:20 Zombie Map - Aaron Falvey: Well if you thought you'd seen the last of the Zombie movie genre. think again.. the undead are still reanimating our screens...and thanks to a new app called 'Zombie Map'.. Kiwi filmmakers are getting the oportunity to showcase their own zombie movies to the world...
Aaron Falvey has just spent the weekend shooting a five minute zombie film for the app and the project has taken him just two weeks to get off the ground..
The self taught auteur made the movie for a few hundred dollars.. a lot of generosity from the Blenheim community... quite a bit of hard work from the cast and crew .. and a whole lot of pizza.
2:30 NZ Reading: Our reading of "Embracing the Dragon" by Polly Greeks continues today. It is the story of her trek along the Great Wall of China with Nathan Gray, a journey that included many of its most remote and dangerous sections.
