1:15 Wild Weather for Whangamata

Severe weather, flooding and slips have all but cut off the Coromandel Peninsula. More than 1,000 homes are without power in the Coromandel and Whangamata's sewerage system is not working. The MetService says up to 200 millimeters of rain fell overnight - and another 60 to 90 millimeters of rain is expected today. Many roads in the area remain closed but State Highway 25 from Kopu to Thames has re-opened to one lane. The Fire Service have rescued three people who were stuck in a submerged car in Whitianga. There has been a major slip on Park Avenue in Whanagamata which is threatening three homes - two people have been evacuated. Thirty school children were also evacuated from a campsite and taken to the Whangamata Civil Defence Centre. Whangamata resident, Noeline Lee, has lived in the area for about thirty years and says she's never seen anything like it.

1:25 Teens, Sex and Consent

Wellington College is investigating some of its students over comments made on Facebook about taking advantage of drunk girls. It includes the comment "If you don't take advantage of a drunk girl, you're not a true Wc [Wellington College] boy". In 2014 the Ministry of Education updated its sex education guidelines for schools to include issues of consent. This followed the so called, Roast Busters case - where two Auckland men bragged about intoxicating underage girls and having sex with them. Dr Katie Fitzpatrick is from Auckland University's Education Department, and has long advocated for better sexuality education in schools and helped draft the new guidelines.

Dr Lisa Argilla has been treating yellow eyed penguins at a temporary hospital for the past eight years during their molting season when they are vulnerable. She now would like to establish a full time wildlife clinic in the city to provide around the year care for penguins and other wild animals in the lower south island. She speaks to Jesse about raising money for the venture and where she hopes to get the funds from.

1:35 Sound Archives: Programmes for Preschoolers

A couple of weeks ago we sparked memories with a few of you by playing some excerpts from the sound archives of radio 'Broadcasts to Schools'.

This week Sarah Johnston from Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision is going back even further, with programmes for preschoolers.

3:10 Make Your Kid a Money Genius

It's never too soon to talk to your kids about money, says personal finance expert Beth Kobliner.  But the trouble is most of us haven't got a clue about what to talk about.   Kobliner offers advice on everything from teaching kids  the value of money, to allowance, to investment and avoiding debt.  Her book is called Make Your Kid a Money Genius (Even if You're Not).

3:35 RNZ Eyewitness

It's February 1994 and in Auckland, the Big Day Out is bursting noisily into life. The giant outdoor music festival is making its New Zealand debut at Mt Smart Stadium and the headline acts are American grunge kings Soundgarden and Smashing Pumpkins.

But while the Big Day Out is just getting going, one of the bands playing that day is calling it quits.

Eyewitness takes us back to the beginning of something good and the end of something great.
