Navigation for Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan

Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan for Wednesday 27 January 2016

1:10 First Song

'Remedy II' - My Baby

1:15 Murray Ball - Pam Ball

Yesterday, legendary cartoonist Murray Ball, celebrated his 77th birthday. And Gisborne had a bit of a birthday present for the Footrot Flats' creator. Life-sized bronze statutes of Wal and Dog were temporarily installed on the banks of the Taruheru River. Murray is unwell at the moment, so he couldn't speak with us. But his wife, Pam, has kindly agreed to join us.

1:25 Hillary Clinton/Young Lover - Arthur Meek

Our next guest is on a quest to become Hillary Clinton's 'young lover'. And he's devised a plan to attract the attention and love of the US Democrat. Well, that's what his theatre production aims to do. Hillary Clinton/Young Lover is by the playwright and performer Arthur Meek and writer and director Geoff Pinfield. And it opens at Wellington's Circa Theatre this week. Arthur Meek is New Zealand actor and playwright. He won the Bruce Mason Award for Playwrighting in 2012 and was the third recipient of the Harriet Friedlander New York Residency.

1:32 John Key's Speech - Todd Niall

Prime Minister John Key has just delivered his first speech of the year in Auckland. RNZ National's Auckland Correspondent, Todd Niall, has been listening to the speech.

1:36 Sound Archives - Sarah Johnston

This week marks sixty-five-years since New Zealand was gripped by an unfolding tragedy on the sea off the east coast of the country. The 1951 Canterbury Centennial Yacht Race had started on January 23rd, with 20 yachts racing from Wellington to Lyttelton, to celebrate the Canterbury Centenary. The race was hit by a southerly storm, and ten men were eventually declared lost at sea in what is still our greatest yachting disaster. Two recordings in the sound archives of Nga Taonga Sound & Vision tell the story and Sarah Johnston is here to tell us about them today.

1:40 Favourite Album

Bon Iver - Bon Iver. 

2:10 Solidarity Grid - Deborah McCormick

A public art project in Christchurch is getting noticed by vistors to the city. A travelogue in The Chicago Tribune sings the praises of the Solidarity Grid, an installation organised by the SCAPE public art charitable trust.   

2:20 Roadmap - St Arnaud (Nelson Lakes)

The New Zealand Road Map this week leads us to a small alpine village with two names. Despite it's official name being adopted in 1951 and in spite of a geographic board ruling in 2007 NOT to accept a dual name, more than half the town's residents refer to the place they live by it's original name. 

3:10 Technology And Innovation

Our technology correspondent Paul Brislen has the latest news on the territorial clamp-down by Netflix. New Zealand receives a poor score for innovation - surprisingly. We meet our Innovator-Of-The-Week. And as usual, Paul will answer your technology questions. 

3:25 The Wireless

A preview of what is coming up in RNZ's on-line magazine, THE WIRELESS.

3:35 New Zealand Society

A Milton man, Andrew Williamson, is shifting from the speedway to the world of ride on lawnmower racing. As Katy Gosset found, his diagnosis of multiple sclerosis hasn't slowed him down.

3:45 The Panel Pre-Show

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