In the past few days we have lost two leading figures in the cultural life of New Zealand; photographer Marti Friedlander and novelist, playwright and biographer Sir James McNeish who both passed away on November 14th.

They worked together on the iconic 1974 book of black and white photographs of New Zealanders, 'Larks in Paradise' - her pictures of New Zealanders and his text. 

We explore sound recordings by both of them in our archives with Sarah Johnston from Nga Taonga Sound & Vision.

2:30 Bookmarks with Claire Mabey

On Bookmarks this week a young woman who has traveled around the world, without much of a plan (she says).  After working in publishing in Europe she returned home to take up the position of associate director of the Tauranga Arts Festival.  She is also New Zealand Festival's Writers Week Coordinator and Culture Club Programme Manager, and works with her partner Andrew Laking on Pirate & Queen Productions like last weekends "LitCrawl"  festival in Wellington.

3:10 To Rebuild or Demolish?

Engineers have been inspecting nearly 50 earthquake-damaged buildings in Wellington, with some likely to be closed for weeks.

Several multi-storey buildings were damaged, and glass fell into streets, following the magnitude 7.5 quake centred near Hanmer.  A decision on repairing or demolishing a 10-storey building on Molesworth Street could be determined today.

But given the number of quakes we get in this region, are we building the right type of buildings in the right places?

Ron Mayes is from Simpson Gumpertz and Heger. It's a San Francisco-based national engineering firm that designs, investigates, and rehabilitates structures, building enclosures, and materials. Ron is also the Secretary of the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute and is a past Vice-President of The Masonry Society. And he was involved in the Christchurch rebuild.
