Ridley the turtle is continuing to recover at Wellington Zoo. The 25kg Olive Ridley Sea Turtle was discovered at Lyall Bay beach just over two weeks ago.

1:20 The Art and Science of Firewalking - Dr John Campbell

About 300 people turned up to learn about the science of firewalking last night. And, some of the brave gave it a go. Christchurch physicist, Dr John Campbell, gave a public lecture at the University of Otago before the punters took to the glowing charcoal.

It features portraits of Teina Pora, Lousie Nicholas and four prisoners who are currently incarcerated. It's called No Free Man: To No One Deny Justice, and the images are taken by Nigel Swinn. Curator of the exhibition, Dr Erin Griffey, is an expert on portraiture and Head of Art History from the University of Auckland.

3:10 Feature interview - Robert Yehling

Surfer Clay Marzo knows waves.  At the age of 15, he became the first surfer to receive two perfect 10's at the US Men's National Competition.  He knows waves, but often he had a hard time understanding people.  After years of feeling isolated from his peers, years when the only peace he felt was in the surf, he was diagnosed with Asperger's.  Author Robert Yehling tells his story in the new book, Just Add Water: A Surfing Savant's Journey with Asperger's.

3:35 Our Changing World - Ruth Beran

Behind the scenes at New Plymouth's museum Puke Ariki is a treasure trove of natural sciences, but not even Heritage Manager/Pouarahi Tukuihotanga Andrew Moffat knows exactly how large it is. That's because it hasn't been fully catalogued, and Jo Fitness shows Ruth Beran what that task involves.

Stories from Our Changing World.

3:45 The Panel Pre-Show

What the world is talking about.  With Jesse Mulligan, Jim Mora and Noelle McCarthy.
