2:10 The Smallest Continent: Journeys Through New Zealand Landscapes - Derek Grzelewski

Our next guest is an epic adventurer. He's spent twenty years working for New Zealand Geographic. And he's written about climbing, cave diving, sunken treasures and fly fishing. His name is Derek Grzelewski, and now he's written a new book. It's called The Smallest Continent: Journeys Through New Zealand Landscapes.

2:20 Our Changing World

'The landscape of fear' is an idea in ecology that suggests fear alone might be enough to change the way prey animals live in and shape their environment. The classic example is wolves and deer in Yellowstone National Park, but Alison Ballance finds out how marine biologist Arie Spyksma is investigating whether the humble sea urchin also lives in a landscape of fear.

2:45 Feature Album

Roger Waters, The Wall Live in Berlin 1990.

2:30 NZ Reading - How To Make Your First Billion

Our serial 'How to Make Your First Billion' is a fictionalised insight into Silicon Valley, the home of the global communications revolution - where a young entrepreneur is trying to persuade his friend - a computer whiz from India to help him to launch a new internet company.

3:10 Mary Taylor Previte

When Mary Taylor Previte was nine years old she was a girl guide doing what girls guides do, singing songs at troop meetings, earning badges and doing her best to live up to the Guide pledge. But Mary's troop wasn't in the suburbs, Mary was a girl guide at a Japanese Prisoner of War camp in China. She and her siblings were attending a boarding school in China. The day after the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941, the Japanese sent the teachers, students and staff to a prison camp. The adults started a Girl Guides troop in the camp, and gave Mary and her friends a tiny piece of their childhoods. In just a few weeks, Mary will celebrate the 70th of the liberation of that camp.
