Scientists have been warning about the serious risk of super bugs and antibiotic resistance for many years ...  

England's chief medical officer has repeatedly warned an 'antibiotic apocalypse' may already be upon us, with a growing number of potentially fatal infections now resistant to antibiotics

Now world leaders are holding a summit on the issue at the United Nations this week.

Professor Kurt Krause from Otago University's Biochemistry Department is an expert in antibiotic resistance and discusses the significance of this.

Filmmaker Roseanne Liang first came to notice with Banana in a Nutshell, a documentary based on her own life and cross-cultural romance with a European Kiwi.

It won a number of awards, including SPADA New Filmmaker of 2005. Then she turned the doco into a movie My Wedding and Other Secrets, a somewhat autobiographical romantic comedy.

Today she speaks to Jesse Mulligan about her latest project, the web series "Friday Night Bites" a weekly comedy  set in Auckland, following 26 eclectic Friday nights in the lives of three co-habiting 20-something Kiwi-Asian women."

She also discusses her favourite music, movies, TV shows and books.

3:10 Debunking Conspiracy Theories

The Russians have poisoned Hillary Clinton. Elvis Presley  is alive and well. The Malaysia Airlines plane that disappeared in the Indian Ocean is the same one shot down over the Ukraine.

These are just a few of the many, many conspiracy theories that flourish in the echo chamber of the internet. 

Mick West is a science writer and is dedicated to the art of debunking wild theories that circulate online and helping other people do the same, with his website, Metabunk.
