1:10 First song

Lorde and Disclosure - 'Magnets'

1:15 Sugary Drinks Ban - Dr Anita Bell

We speak to Dr Anita Bell about Waikato Hospital's prohibition of sugary drinks.  

1:20 Live Coronation Street - Simon Bennett 

The long-running soap, Coronation Street, was broadcast live last night - this morning New Zealand time. Eleven cameras on various sets shot the scenes live. And during the ad breaks, there was interaction with viewers on social media. When Corrie first aired, it was always broadcast live - as was always the case in TV back then. But could this new live interactive format be the future for soaps? We talk to Shortland Street's producer, Simon Bennett.

1:30 Living Below The Line - Geoff Scott

Auckland chef Geoff Scott is participating in the Living Below the Line challenge. Participants will live on $2.25 a day, the New Zealand equivalent of the global extreme poverty line, for all their food for five days. They are doing this in solidarity with the millions of human trafficking and slavery victims around the globe and raising money for TEAR Fund's anti-trafficking work in Southeast Asia.

Lucinda Williams - 'Lucinda Williams' (1988)

2:10 Mindfulness - Ruby Wax

She is in New Zealand to address a conference of health professionals.     

2:20 Roadmap - Stratford

Today on the roadmap we are going on a roadtrip 30 minutes out of New Plymouth to the South Taranaki town of Stratford.
