1:20 National Anthem - Grahame Sydney

We've all been talking about whether to change our flag, and if so, what design it should be. But instead of submitting a design of his own, renowned artist Grahame Sydney is raising a different debate. He's called it 'horrid' and 'wretched' and cringes every time he has to watch the All Blacks sing it. He's talking about 'God Defend New Zealand' and thinks it's time for a change of tune.

1:25 'Witch Doctors' in South Auckland - Pratima Nand

Warnings are out that black magic-practicing witch doctors are storming South Auckland.  And one community leader thinks it's spreading.  Indian community leader, Pratima Nand, is concerned that vulnerable people are being exploited.  And Immigration New Zealand says it is investigating.

While much of Silicon Valley is preoccupied with figuring out how to get more people to click on ads, one tech entrepreneur is being held up as a new kind of tech titan, who dreams big and chases more than dollar signs.  Much has been written about   South African-born entrepreneur, inventor and engineer Elon Musk, from his difficult childhood to his meteoric rise in global business. Bloomberg Business writer Ashlee Vance has written a new biography, the first with cooperation from Musk called Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future
