Play Angelina by Dave Dobbyn

1:15 New Hampshire primary

The votes are being counted in the second round of the US primaries in the key caucuses of New Hampshire. Just like in Iowa last week, New Hampshire is an important victory for both the Democratic and Republican nominees. We cross to RNZ's political editor Jane Patterson

1:18 Air Farming

It's a business craze that's taking off throughout polluted cities, such as Beijing and Shanghai. And British man, Leo De Watts, has jumped in to the air farming industry. He's started a company that bottles fresh air, and it's being sold to punters at a premium price. We speak to Leo while he's out and about in the mountains in California... harvesting air.

1:29 A Historic Bottle

The oldest bottle of New Zealand wine ever to be opened and tasted had it's cork popped at 11.30 this morning. The rare 1903 Landsdowne Claret is thought to be a blend of three grapes and made by William Beetham and his French wife Hermance. We talk to Sommelier Cameron Douglas.

1:36 Sound Archives - Sarah Johnston

It is apple harvest time right now - and this week Sarah Johnston from Nga Taonga Sound & Vision is bringing us some archival radio recordings about apples

2:10 TPP and the Treaty

Canadian Professor John Borrows is a member of the Chippewas of Nawash First Nation and is an internationally respected legal expert, particularly in the context of indigenous people. He's in Wellington for a lecture on possible implications of the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement for the treaty of Waitangi.

2:20 Surfing - Dr Easkey Britton

We're talking surfing, with Irish champion big wave surfer Dr Easkey Britton. She is also an Adjunct Waikato University researcher and co-founded the #SurfSocialGood hashtag summit and the Fair Surf platform. Easkey co-founded 'Waves of Freedom', which started with Easkey and a french filmmaker going to Iran and teaching men and women in rural Iran how to surf. More recently, she has been working in Papua New Guinea.

2:30 Roadmap - Otira

Today we travel to one of the smallest towns in Westland - and probably the smallest town in New Zealand to have it's very own contemporary art gallery! Otira traces its history back to the gold rush era when it was a stopping point for stagecoaches traveling between Christchurch and the goldfields of the West Coast. At its peak the town was home to about 700 people in the 1920s - most of them workers building the Otira gorge tunnel and railway which still bridges the Southern Alps today. At the time it was made the 8.5 kilometer tunnel was the longest in the world.

3:10 Tech and innovation

Paul Brislen tells us about Apple's Error 51, revisits the question of whether Microsoft is going to force us to update to Windows 10 and questions whether Twitter going to start curating its content. Our innovator of the week is Parrot Analytics - a Kiwi company doing analysis on TV viewing trends.

3:25 The Wireless

Tess McClure tells us about The Wireless' coverage for #mentalhealthmatters

3:35 New Zealand Society

Amelia Nurse visits children's author Bianca Begovich - along with her monarchs, children and chickens - to chat about her passion for teaching kids about the environment.
