1:15 Could Google results change an election ?

If you've seen the show House of Cards you'll know the storyline about the presidential candidate using the search engine PollyHop to find out what the voters think and believe. That show is fiction but is the storyline plausible?

In recent weeks Google has been accused of favouring Hillary Clinton's campaign, and Facebook has been criticised by conservatives for hiding their point of view from news feeds.

Dr Robert Epstein is, a San Diego-based psychologist who has done extensive research into human-adjusted search engines and how they shape what we see and what we don't.

1:25 Mapping the Marlborough Sounds Seabed

A new project has been green lit, to map the seabed of the Marlborough Sounds. It will be the first time in 70 years, any mapping has been done in the area. It's a multi-million dollar marine project between the Marlborough District Council and Land Information New Zealand. Adam Greenland, is a national hydrographer, at Land Information New Zealand.

2:20 Auckland Dogs are losing their colour

If you live in Auckland, and you're a dog owner, your ginger dog could now simply be called red. Your silver, sand, ash and pepper... a simple grey.

Auckland Council is culling the 46 colours used to describe dogs, and will be using a mere 11. Albert-Eden-Roskill Councillor, Dr Cathy Casey, is here to talk dogs!

2:25 Great New Zealand Album: Mark Williams by Mark Williams

Today, the debut album from a shy, slight young lad from Dargaville whose high school band The Face achieved some notoriety, taking third place in a national Battle of the Bands contest.  His solo career was launched on the TV show "Free Ride."  That bought him to the attention of the wider public and led to a recording contract with EMI New Zealand which, in turn, resulted in the release of his self titled first album in 1975.  It stayed n the charts for 30 weeks  became the biggest New Zealand Pop/Rock album of the 70's.

Mark Williams speaks to us from Sydney this afternoon and the album's producer Alan Galbraith also joins us from Carterton.

Dr Gill Hicks

3:10 London Bombing survivor, Dr Gill Hicks

Dr Gill Hicks could be forgiven for choosing not to forgive the terrorists who carried out the bombings on the London Underground in 2005, killing 52 people and injuring 700 others.

She lost her legs and nearly lost her life.

But she has forgiven the people responsible.  She says the cycle of hate has to stop. She's now an advocate non-violent solutions to conflict.

Dr Gill Hicks will be in our Auckland Studio.

3:30 Science and environment stories
