Nga Taonga Sound Vision1:20 New Zealand Retro - Gyms

Today's Retro explores the rise in popularity of the modern gym - how did it evolve from a place mainly for muscle bound men, to a venue where both men and women sought to gain fitness?  We talk to gym founder Les Mills, to instructor Susan Trainor, and to two gym members who've been regular attendees for decades - Phil Briars and Annette Hugill.

A back-room police museum collection has housed 37 sets of human remains, in storage, for decades. And now, the remains will be laid to rest by the New Zealand Police Museum in Porirua. The collection includes remains of murder victims and was used for investigative training by detectives in the 1920s and 1930s. New Zealand Police Museum director Rowan Carroll explains.
