1:15 Suicide, Rape and 13 Reasons Why

A new Netflix show about teen suicide has been labelled as 'irresponsible, unsafe and unethical' by The Mental Health Foundation. 13 Reasons Why features the suicide of teenage girl, Hannah Baker, who records 13 tapes, blaming 12 people for her death. The show is based on a book by the same name, and depicts suicide and rape in graphic detail. Twenty-year-old Charlie Laurie is a youth leader at Youthline and he's been watching.

1.25 Spiders, Spiders Everywhere

What looks like a massive cobweb has been spotted in Bay of Plenty over the weekend. It's reported to look like it covers an area of about 30 meters, at Gordon Spratt Reserve in Papamoa, after many parts of the area suffered heavy rain and flooding. Dr Simon Pollard is a spider biologist at the University of Canterbury. He's here to shed some light on what people were seeing.

1:35 Sound Archives: Commercials from the 1940's

Too many apples, but not enough rubber or potatoes. Supply and demand problems caused by World War II feature in Sarah Johnston's look at historic radio ads from the 1940s, part of Sellebration  - an online exhibition of advertising at Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision.

2:20 Bookmarks: Chris Dobbs of Working Style

Chris Dobbs started working life, hawking shirts door to door.  His burgeoning fashion empire took a great step forward when he progressed to selling items made by his mother's sewing circle in the town of Marton.
Thirty years on his company employs 44 staff, working half a dozen stores around the country. Their high end suits, shirts and casual-wear are worn by many of our politicians, media celebrities and sporting heroes. Working Style has become almost a household name for quality and is another New Zealand fashion success story.

3:10 Teaching kids to live like a caveman

They call him professor caveman. Bill Schindler, is teaching lessons from 200 millennia ago to millennials.  He wants them to ditch the smartphones and comforts of modern life to live like Neolithic humans.

He believes there is nothing like living like we did 200,000 years ago to understand living in the modern world. He teaches students to make tools, hunt prey and completely unplug.
