1:15 How Quantum Technology is Changing the World
There's a global race to become leaders in quantum technology with billions being invested worldwide. New Zealand, who are pioneers in the field, are contributing at top level to the race. The Dodd Walls Centre's aim is to train a workforce competent in quantum technology who can grow high value industries that provide jobs, attract smart young people and contribute to creating tomorrow's life-changing technologies. Professor Ian Walmsley heads of one of the UK's new multi-million dollar Quantum Technology Hubs, and he's in Dunedin speaking at the centre's annual symposium.
1:25 Rebooting Pork Pie
It has remained one of the most iconic films in New Zealand history, so how on earth, can you improve on the original Blondini epic. No doubt you'll have heard there's a reboot of the 1981 classic, Goodbye Pork Pie, to be released in February. And director, Matt Murphy, has been the man driving the project.

United Noshes is a series of 194 dinner parties, one for each member of the United Nations, in alphabetical order. It started in 2011 in Brooklyn, squeezing friends and strangers alike into a 500-square-foot apartment. And now they're up to N... and New Zealand is up this weekend.
