2:10 The Mountaineer - Guy McKinnon: It's been hailed as a 'once in a generation' feat of mountaineering - the ascent of the West face of Mount Tutoko in Fiordland National Park near Milford Sound.
And in the early hours of Sunday morning, Christchurch man Guy McKinnon realised a long-held dream when he achieved the climb - it's seen as one of the greatest remaining challenges in New Zealand mountaineering.
2:20 Football United - Nick Daly: The World Cup brought international football to our television screens and now some top flight footballers are about to display their skills on New Zealand pitches.
For the first time, two English premier league sides are touring here together: Newcastle United and West Ham.
One fan who's been waiting a long time to see West Ham play on our shores is Wellingtonion Nick Daly, who set up the Kiwi branch of the Hammers Supporters Club.

3:30 Memory - Ruth Beran: The brain is incredible at learning new information and updating what's already stored there, but how does it do it? University of Otago's Cliff Abraham and Bruce Mockett are looking at the connections between brain cells, to try and work it out, and explain to Ruth Beran how this research may one day help people with Alzheimer's disease.
3:45 Panel Pre-Show - Zara Potts with what the world's talking about today: Plastic Island in the Pacific Ocean, not gyre any more but geography; how to make millions on youtube - really simply, from the sound of it. The deepening relationships of young people with their pets (relationship substitutes), how women like daughters, and for that matter why?
