1.15 Auckland Transport Woes

Apologies to the rest of the nation, but we need to talk about Auckland's traffic woes. Journalist, Simon Wilson, has been thinking about how the crisis happened. And, he says 'Transport planning is a complete bloody mess'... and it will only get worse.

1.25 The Game of Awesome

A new learning tool is proving so popular with kids, they spend their lunchtime still playing it. The Game of Awesome is a card game aimed at inspiring students to write. It was developed with a specific focus on suitability for boys in years five to eight. And won the coveted 'purple pin' award at last year's Best Design awards. Robert Whitaker is from Chrometoaster, the company that developed the game.

3:10 Masterpieces with Tim Shadbolt

Invercargill Mayor Tim Shadbolt looks back on his favourite protest during the anti-vietnam war movement.

Tim Shadbolt was a student anti-war activist during the 1960s and 1970s.

He was arrested 33 during this time, including for using the word “bullshit", hence the title of his autobiography, Bullshit and Jellybeans.

He organised weekly meetings in Albert Park known as the “Jumping Sundays” to raise awareness of New Zealand’s role in the war, and to encourage people to protest.

He looks back on those times, addressing the crowds in Albert Park.
