The unemployment rate has fallen to a six-year low. Statistics out today, show the unemployment rate has fallen sharply to 5.3 percent in the three months ended December.

1:20 Drone-Intercepting Raptors - Debbie Stewart
Police in the Netherlands are experimenting with the use of Eagles to bring down illegal drones. Could our New Zealand raptors offer a similar service?
1:34 Sound Archives - Sarah Johnston
It's Waitangi Day this Saturday. And this week, Sarah Johnston from Nga Taonga Sound & Vision, is going to play us a recording from the 1940 celebrations which marked the centenary of the signing of the Treaty.
1:40 Favourite Album
Who's Zoomin' Who? - Aretha Franklin. Chosen by Robert Hardman.
2:10 High Tea At The Oscars - Sophie Howard
Next we're speaking with a Wellington mother of two, who's been selected to serve high tea at the Oscars. She's one of 40 people to be hand-picked.
2:20 Roadmap - National Park
Today we follow the New Zealand Road Map to the highest urban township in the nation. It's on State highway 4 and just 20 minutes drive from two of our largest, and best known, skifields. Tourism is the main industry - 15 hundred visitor beds here, in a town with a population of just 174 at the last official count. The main attraction is our largest active volcano and her two smaller sisters which sit in close proximity.
3:10 Technology And Innovation
Paul Brislen discusses a new survey that finds telcos are really bad at answering their phones and it's back to school time, with all the technology challenges that presents for students and their parents. Our innovator of the week is Marie-Claire Andrews from ShowGizmo which is an app that helps event organisers get conference goers involved in the conference.
3:25 The Wireless
Rebecca Kamm from RNZ's online magazine The Wireless talks about her recent article on Selective Mutism. An anxiety disorder that renders sufferers unable to speak.
3:35 New Zealand Society
Hundreds of people flock to the Cook Islands for its annual paddling competition but getting the locals onto longer ocean voyages isn't always as easy. The captain and crew of the wind and solar powered vaka, Marumaru Atua are sailing their wooden vessel to the competition to show it off.
