Navigation for Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan

Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan for Friday 29 April 2016

1:10 First Song

'My Love Is Your Love' - Whitney Houston. 

1:17 Anti-Vax Sentiment - Brian Deer

It's World Immunization Week. And Vaccination is still the best way at preventing a disease or illness. Despite gains in vaccination coverage in some regions and countries the past year, global vaccination targets are proving difficult to meet.  Here in New Zealand one of the barriers to vaccination is the persistant belief that it can cause autism in children. The origin of this myth was a paper by Andrew Wakefield in 1998 which claimed to have found a link. The evidence in the paper was later found to be falsified and Wakefield was struck off the medical register. The man responsible for uncovering the fraudulent research was Brian Deer.  

1:27 NZ Banknotes - Mahdi Bseiso

By now you've probably heard that New Zealand's new $5 note has been named Banknote of the Year in an international competition. The $5 note was awarded the IBNS Banknote of the Year title at the International Bank Note Society's annual meeting. The award recognises outstanding achievement in the design, technical sophistication and security of a banknote or banknote series. Mahdi Bseiso is on the IBNS Executive Board.

1:34 Critter of the Week - Nicola Toki

This week's critically endangered but unfortunately uncharismatic creature is the Shore Plover.  It is one of the rarest shorebirds  in the world.  DOC's endangered species ambassador Nicola Toki discusses this bird's plight.

Live After Death - Iron Maiden.

2:10 New Zealand Society

Today we hear the story of Ella Henry, who as a 15 year old runaway had a chance encounter with poet James K Baxter.
