1:30 What We Value In Our Leaders

The world is talking about who will be the next President of the United States. But what qualities do we value in our leaders? And how has that changed over time? Dr Suze Wilson is a lecturer at the School of Management at Massey University. She's also written a book called, Thinking Differently about Leadership, that looks at ancient Greek, Medieval and modern theories of leadership.

1:35 Dan Slevin on movie reboots

For a long time audiences have been getting increasingly cynical about what they perceive as Hollywood's lack of imagination by remaking, rebooting, sequel-ising and franchising until every character is living in one brand of shared universe or another.

Dan talks about the reaction to the rebooted Ghostbusters, and the concept that a new version of a film can "ruin someone's childhood" despite the original continuing to be freely available.

And He asks what show or film from your childhood is so precious to you that if someone made a new film or tv version of it, you would feel personally offended.

2:20 Great New Zealand Album: Last Exit to Garageland

The Great New Zealand album this week was not a mainstream monster hit nor did it dominate sales charts for any great length of time but it was the seminal album for the band that created.   It also garnered much critical acclaim and exposed these four kiwi musicians to audiences in the UK and US.

This debut album from 1996 did make a big splash on student radio though, with five fresh pop songs getting regular airplay and, finally, they broke into the top five on the nation's album chart.

3:10  Cryonics: will we ever really bring people back from the dead?

Cyronic freezing has long been scoffed at by the science community, but despite that some people remain convinced that if they can preserve their bodies immediately after death, one day in the future the technology will exist to bring them back to life

The first person to cryopreserved was Dr. James Bedford in 1967.  Around 250 people have been preserved in the US, and another 1500 have made arrangements for this to happen when they die.

Science journalist and author, Helen Thomson has been investigating cryogenics, the latest developments and the complex laws around it.. including talking to those who freeze the dead for a living, and getting a tour of a planned state of the art cryopreservation centre in Texas, called Timeship.
