1.25 The History of the Human Face

The human face may not be as modern as we think. In fact, our guest thinks that modern humans have kept a lot of primitive features from our distant ancestors. And says Neanderthals were actually more evolved in their own direction than modern humans. Professor Jean-Jacques Hublin, is the Director of the Department of Human Evolution, at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Germany.

1.35 Sound Archives

Earlier today at McLean Park in Hawke's Bay a pōwhiri was held welcoming 47 teams and an estimated 20,000 fans to Te Matatini, the biggest kapa haka show on earth. For the next four days the top exponents of Māori performing arts will be on show and so Sarah Johnston has been delving back into the sound archives at Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision for some kapa haka classics from years gone by. Information about this years event can be found here with a livestream on Radio Kahungunu of Te Matatini.

3:10  Infertility and The Art of Waiting

To the one in four New Zealanders who experience infertility, disappointment is a constant companion. It's the invisible disability no one knows how to talk about says Belle Boggs, an author who has experienced the pain of infertility herself.  She writes about her own experience, the complexity of assisted reproduction and the meaning of family in her book, The Art Of Waiting: On Fertility, Medicine, And Motherhood.

3:35 BBC Witness - Speed Dating

In 1998, Rabbi Yaacov Deyo and his students came up with a new way for single people to meet each other - they called it "speed dating". It started as a programme for Jewish singles in Los Angeles, but soon spread all over the world.

Lucy Burns takes us back to 1998 and the birth of a match-making activity called speed-dating.
