Is this an ecological and economical disaster...  and will the marine environment recover? Dr Sharyn Goldstien of Canterbury University is a marine ecology lecturer and co-ordinator around field stations.

1:35 Censorship in a digital age

Censorship in New Zealand

One hundred years ago, film censorship was introduced to New Zealand, making it illegal to show any film without it first being passed by the Censor. From 16 to 26 November, Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision will mark the centenary with a season of banned films and debate, called CENSORED. There is a public discussion happening tonight, and one panellist speaking, is chief censor Dr Andrew Jack.

2:20 Economics with Shamubeel Eaqub

Every second Thursday at this time, Jesse usually talks economics with Geoff Simmons from the Morgan Foundation. Geoff is now involved in Gareth Morgan's new political party

But we are lucky that eminent economist Shamubeel Eaqub has agreed to take over. Today he talks disaster economics. In light of the recent quakes, what is their impact on the economy?

2:35 Winning the popular vote but losing the election

Donald Trump won the 2016 US Election despite losing the popular vote to Hilary Clinton. This is the fifth time this has happened in US history and is due to the US Electoral College voting system.  

We have also experienced elections here in New Zealand in which the party with the most votes lost. Victoria University Grant Morris looks back.
