Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan for Wednesday 25 November 2015

1:10 First Song

'Blackstar' - David Bowie.

1:15 Funny Business - Jimmy Carr

He is one of the world's funny men. He is hardly off the tele in the UK and more than one-and-a-half million people have seen him perform live. He is the outrageous stand-up comedian, Jimmy Carr. And he is coming to New Zealand soon.  

1:25 Shira The Giraffe On The Move - Dr James Chatterton  

Auckland Zoo's two-year-old giraffe is on the move today. Shira began a three-day voyage starting her journey from Auckland to Christchurch this morning. She is being relocated to Orana Wildlife Park, as part of a breeding programme.

1:35 Sound Archives 'The Blizzard' - Sarah Johnston

One hundred years ago this week, the New Zealanders still grimly hanging onto the slopes of Gallipoli, were dealt yet another blow. After enduring a summer of searing heat, with vast swarms of flies and the dysentery they brought, the northern winter arrived in force. From November 26 to 28, 1915, a vicious snow storm lashed the Gallipoli peninsula bringing further misery. In archival radio interviews recorded in the 1950s and 60s, Gallipoli veterans talked about what they came to call 'The Blizzard'. Sarah Johnston, from the radio archives of Nga Taonga Sound and Vision is here to tell us about it.

1:40 Favourite Album

American Beauty - Grateful Dead. 

2:20 Roadmap - Te Horo

Today's Roadmap takes us 65 kilometres north from Wellington, to the sunny Kapiti Coast. Between Waikanae and Otaki lie the small but spunky communities of Te Horo and Te Horo beach, which between them have 650 residents. The climate is ideal for growing and the proximity of Wellington and Palmerston North invites commuters with a hankering for country life.

3:10 Technology And Innovation

Our technology correspondent Paul Brislen is here to mark Windows' 30th birthday, discuss in-car technologies and introduce us to our Innovator Of The Week. Paul is also happy to answer your questions.

3:25 Country Life Preview - Carol Stiles

Carol Stiles from Country Life joins us from Hamilton to tell us what is coming up on the programme this weekend.

3:35 New Zealand Society

Beaujolais Nouveau is both a wine and an event. It's celebrated around the world on the third Thursday in November - and New Zealand is the first in the world to have a taste.

3:45 The Panel Pre-Show

What the world is talking about with Jesse Mulligan, Jim Mora and Zara Potts.
