Navigation for Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan

Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan for Tuesday 18 April 2017

1:10 First song

1.15 To march or not to march?

New Zealand will be one of the first countries to 'March for Science' on Earth Day, this Saturday. The March For Science NZ website, says 'We add our voices to the chorus, supporting US and international scientists who oppose recent political events that damage and undermine science and its use in the public interest'. And says it's a protest against the 'denial of established climate science', and the 'serious human rights violations that will follow from our continued inaction'. It also says it's a protest against the injustice of laws that exclude people from scientific communities on the basis of their country of birth, race, or religion. Dr John Pickering is an Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of Otago, and a Senior Research Fellow in Acute Care in the Emergency Department of Christchurch hospital. He's written a blog on the motivation to march or not.

1.20 March for Science

Craig Stevens is president of the New Zealand Association of Scientists and an oceanographer from NIWA, who specialises in looking at just how the ocean works, and the role it plays in climate change. He's not an organiser of the 'March for Science'  but has been asked to speak and will do so. 

1.25 Sir Peter Snell hands over collection to Te Papa

New Zealand athlete Sir Peter Snell has officially hand over 14 items from his personal collection to Te Papa in Wellington. The donations include two Olympic gold medals, those from the 800m in the 1960 Rome Olympic Games, and one of the two medals won by Snell at the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games. Te Papa history curator, Stephanie Gibson, has been working with Peter on the exhibition.

1:35 Five Came Back

Dan Slevin, RNZ's film guy, discusses the new Netflix documentary series Five Came Back, the story of five great directors from Hollywood’s golden age who volunteered to serve in WWII as documentary makers, the films they made and the effect of their service - what they saw and experienced - on their later films.

The directors are John Ford, Frank Capra, William Wyler, John Huston and - the biggest surprise to me - George Stevens who was at D-Day as well as being with the first troops to liberate the Dachau concentration camp.

1:40 Favourite album: Jagged Little Pill by Alanis Morissette

It's hard to think of a much bigger album than the one we have for you today.  For a start it's the 14th largest selling album in New Zealand - ever!  Two Hundred, Thousand copies were sold here, enough to make it 14 times platinum, and it topped our album charts for eleven weeks
