1:15 New Zealand 'Key Player' in Panama Papers - Gerard Ryle

The big story of the day, is the leak of more than 11 million documents, revealing New Zealand is being used as a tax haven by foreign politicians, drug traffickers, billionaires, celebrities and sports stars. The security breach has exposed Panama-based Mossack Fonseca, and shows how a global industry of law firms and big banks sell financial secrecy. It's considered to be the world's largest data leak. Theanonymous source shared the documents with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists which organised an investigation by news organisations throughout the world. The documents include emails, banking details and client records dating back 40 years and reveal the inner workings of a law firm famed for its secrecy. Gerard Ryle is the director of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. And he says New Zealand is a key player in the offshore world.

1:25 Simulating Friendly Fire - Professor Deak Helton

'War is hell' is an old adage our guest believes in, and he's out to save lives and reduce casualties. University of Canterbury psychology professor, Deak Helton, and his students are setting out to simulate the hell of friendly fire. Deak talks about how to reduce collateral damage in modern warfare.

1:35 Getting Girls Into Tech - Nilesh Kanji

Getting more female high school students to explore digital technology is the aim of an initiative, called GirlsInC. Girls in Computing is he brainchild of Nilesh Kanji.

3:10 Feature Interview - Nancy Jo Sales

Anyone with a teenager in the house, especially a teenage girl, knows how much time they spend on their phones and on social media.  But they aren't just trading gossip.  NetSafe warns  most New Zealand teenagers have been asked to send a nude picture. Social media is putting huge pressure on  teenage girls says author and journalist Nancy Jo Sales. Her new book American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers  looks at the unprecedented pressures teenagers are now dealing with.
