2.15    Nepal Earthquake - Mal Haskins

At least 50 people have been reported dead in Nepal and 17 in India after the second powerful earthquake to hit the region. The latest earthquake struck near the town of Namche Bazaar and sent thousands of panicked residents on to the streets of Nepal's capital, Kathmandu. New Zealand mountain guide Mal Haskins has been living in Nepal, leading expeditions and flying a helicopter. After the devastating first quake, him and his wife Sophie got together with Sir Edund Hillary's granddaughter, Amelia, to help deliver aid to mountain villages that have been flattened by massive rock avalanches.

2:20  To Hell With Poverty - Rodney Laredo

Spending a year of your life polishing shoes, pouring drinks, acting as marriage counsellors, and truce negotiators for family feuds, isn't everyone's idea of fun. But one New Zealand couple did just that and got to experience a modern day Downton Abbey of sorts. Christchurch author Rodney Laredo is back from his stay at the big house of Chantborough Court. He's written a book about what really happens upstairs and downstairs in a large English estate, it's called To Hell with Poverty.

2:30 NZ Reading - The Conductor

Elias's Radio Orchestra is now the city's cultural backbone and despite drunken oboist Alexander's abuse, earns the respect of his players. At a farewell party thrown by Sollertinsky, Elias meets up with the dancer Nina Bronnikova again and Shostakovich arranges for her to dance with the shy Elias
