2:10  BBC Witness - King Of Highlife 

E.T Mensah took Africa by storm in the 1950s with a new style of dance band: Highlife music. For many, it was the soundtrack to a new, independent Africa.

2.20 Great New Zealand Concerts - Elton John

Elton John first came to New Zealand in October 1971 at Western  Springs. His second visit was February 1974 - then of course numerous times after that. He's played in Taranaki, Dunedin and Wellington, to name just a few and will be returning in November to perform at the Wellington stadium.

3:10 Frequent Flyer - Ben Schlappig

Ben Schlappig flies around the world for a living - but he's not a pilot. A year ago, he gave up his apartment and spends his time in the first class section of planes and in exclusive airline lounges worldwide. He does it for less than the price of budget travel by maneuvering airline frequent flyer programmes. He runs a blog with tips for maximizing air points.

3:35 Our Changing World - Veronika Meduna  

While bee hive numbers have increased significantly in New Zealand in recent years, there has also been a surge in unexplained colony losses. Landcare Research has launched New Zealand's first national survey of beekeepers to get a better sense of the industry's health.
