1:34 BREAKING NEWS - Alex Perrottet

The Papua New Guinea Prime Minister's lawyer has been arrested, in the latest development in a high-profile and long-running corruption case.  Tiffany Twivey was arrested after landing at Jackson's Airport in Port Moresby in relation to legal proceedings against another client of hers - the Secretary of Treasury.  Yesterday a Supreme Court judge was also arrested in relation to the same case - involving an alleged undercover government payment of $30 million US dollars to a PNG law firm - that has also implicated the Prime Minister himself.

Little Girl Blue - Nina Simone.  

2:10 Feijoas! - June Allen 

It's that time of year when feijoas are ripening.  June Allen has been working on a collection of feijoa recipes.

2:30 Feature interview - Rebecca Traister

Women are choosing to stay single or marry later in life.  It's a trend in New Zealand and in many parts of the world. The key is the choice.  Women won the right to vote in New Zealand before the rest of he world, but had few other real choices as unmarried women.  Social change and economic opportunity mean marriage is not essential for a job and children like it once was  and single women are not just spinsters or sad cat ladies.   Author and writer at large for New York magazine  Rebecca Traister investigates the reasons for the trend and its implications  in her new book. All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation.

3:10 Autism Research - Dr Javier Javier Virues-Ortega

There's no known cause ... and no cure.  Autism remains one of the most complex disorders for researchers to tackle.  But what if we could see inside the brains of sufferers to see if therapies are actually reshaping them?  That's what a New Zealand team plans to do. It's a world-first study combining the latest behavioural science with cutting-edge functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) technology. 

3:20 BBC Witness - Romanian Orphans

Now we're going back to Romania in the spring of 1990 when after the fall of Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, news began to filter out of thousands of children living in terrible conditions in the country's orphanages.  Lucy Burns of the BBC World Service history programme 'Witness' has been talking to Izidor Ruckel, who was one of them.

3:35 Our Changing World

Over the past 25 years a concerted conservation effort on land had seen yellow-eyed penguin numbers in the South Island climb from just 140-or-so pairs to more than 500. But as Alison Ballance finds out from the Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust's Trudi Webster and Penguin Place's Lisa King, the penguin's numbers have crashed in the last four years.
