2:10 Living the dream - Imagine selling your house to sail around the South Pacific for nearly 10 years. It sounds like a dream for many, but it is the reality of Canadian natives Paul and Mary Major. They first arrived in Nelson five years ago and have sailing right around the country in that time. But Paul and Mary are swapping our Nelson, for a town called Nelson in Canada very soon. They are aboard their 12 metre catamaran Bella Via currently anchored in Oneroa in preparation for the Auckland boat show this week.

2:20 Meteor over Marlborough - Many of us grew up either watching or playing cricket... it's our national summer sport after all. Whether it was in the backyard, at the local cricket club or on the world stage the fast bowlers were the ones to fear. We've had a couple of speedsters with the likes of Sir Richard Hadlee and Shane Bond... but the fastest of them all is thought to be Gary Bartlett. His life and cricket career has been documented in a new book Meteor Over Marlborough:The Gary Bartlett Story, written by former sports journalist John Alexander.

3:10 Feature Author - 'Big Business and Big Data'. Author Adam Tanner from Harvard University explains why we shouldn't be so concerned about the kind of data collection Edward Snowden revealed.. What we should be really concerned about is how businesses collect and use data. The most extreme of examples of this, he says, are in the gambling industry. His new book is called 'What Stays in Vegas'.
