The world's most wanted drug lord has been recaptured following a bloody shootout, and now faces extradition from Mexico, six months after his escape from prison.

1:25 Ugly Food - David Bobanick

Ugly food, it is the surplus produce that goes to waste or is dumped and never makes it to the grocery store. And this is happening when people are struggling to find enough fresh food to eat. One man who is doing something about this problem is Washington-based David Bobanick. He's started a programme called Farm to Food Pantry. And his organisaton has delivered about two hundred million pounds of fresh produce to those in need. David is the executive director of Rotary First Harvest.

1:40 Favourite Album

The world was rocked with the news of David Bowie's death last week. Tributes flowed after the sixty-nine-year-old died after an eighteen-month long battle with cancer. Greg Haver is a musician and award-winning producer, and a massive David Bowie fan. He's picked the album Station to Station.

China is running out of women. That's just one of the many implications of China's now defunct One Child policy that continues to haunt the world's most populous country. Wall Street Journal reporter Mei Fong examines the  repercussions in her new book, One Child: The Story of China's Most Radical Experiment. 

3:35 Voices

Over three million people were killed during the Vietnam War - more than half were Vietnamese civilians. For the Chung  family their initial journey through tragedy has turned into a celebration of life through their food after they arrived here as part of the first wave of former refugees, known then as ‘the boat people’ from Vietnam.  Lynda Chanwai-Earle meets the Chung family in Wellington to find out more.
