NZ Live - the sound of New Orleans from Wellington on New Zealand Live - The Dancing And Drinking Society are with us - includes 3 members of the Roseneath Ragtime band - some of the hardest working musos in the city.

2:10 Crown Lynn - Justin Gregory

Hands up who remembers the Crown Lynn swans? Auckland's famous pottery may have closed its doors in 1989 but the fascination with its cups, mug, plates - and yes, the ceramic swans - goes on regardless. Te Toi Uku is a brand new museum dedicated to all things Crown Lynn and it opened earlier this month on the site of the old works. Justin Gregory went out to take a look but first of all, he caught up with enthusiastic collector and trader Alison Reid at her shop in downtown Auckland.

History as told by the people who were there. Witness talks to people who lived through moments of history to bring you a personal perspective on world events.

The city's food warehouses are destroyed and Leningrad burns as Shostakovich works on his symphony and has a breakthrough for the scherzo. Inspired by Shostakovich's new work,  Elias gets his mother into the cellar during an air raid and puts out a fire. Nikolai has had no news of Sonya, his missing daughter.

3:10 Food, Wine and Movies

Food - Richard Till: Chicken and dumplings

Weekend Wine - Belinda Jackson

Rockburn Parkburn Riesling 2011 - Central Otago $15
Lovely lime zest on the nose - off dry, really polished, clean wine with delicious intensity and a juicy, citrus character.

Solar Viejo Crianza 2011 $18
Meaty, savoury nose with bramble fruit underneath - like blackberries, boysenberries. Velverty texture - firm tannins - a perfect match with some rare beef

Brookfields Hillside Syrah 2013
Great vintage! Deep bright red, lots of freshly ground black pepper on the nose and concentrated spicy plum fruit. A big, powerful wine yet beautifully balanced - delicious roight now but great to keep too.
