1:15 The Future Of Huntly - Allan Sanson

Two fossil fuel power plants in Huntly that were expected to close will now remain open until 2022, Genesis Energy has revealed today. Genesis had previously announced it would close Huntly's two coal-fired Rankine units at the end of 2018 but it said a deal with other generators would see them stay open for another four years. But what does this mean for the community in Huntly? Allan Sanson is the Waikato District Mayor.

1:25 $20,000 Donation Keeps Youthline Afloat - Stephen Bell

Auckland Youthline health clinic has been thrown a lifeline today. The help service for young people was set to close, unless about $50,000 was raised. And one donor has stepped up to offer some of what is needed. CEO for Youthline, Stephen Bell, talks about the future of the service.

1:35 Real Life CSI - Dion Sheppard

Crime scene investigation programmes have exploded on our TV screens, over the past few years. And now New Zealand has its own. Forensics NZ has started on Prime recently, so we thought we'd talk to a real life forensics expert to find out what it's really like. Dion Sheppard is a Forensic Research & Development Programme Manager at Institute of Environmental Science and Research Ltd (ESR) in Auckland.

3:30 Our Changing World

New Zealand's transport system is 99% dependent on fossil fuels and produces a fifth of our total greenhouse gas emissions. A switch to electric vehicles could reduce emissions significantly, but as yet, there are still only about 1000 people in New Zealand who drive fully electric cars. Veronika Meduna is one of them - and she meets EV enthusiasts at the Leading the Charge road trip to find out why they got theirs, what's needed to encourage others and why it makes sense to switch to electric transport.
