Female scientists in New Zealand have been shut out of our history. The contribution of women in the history of New Zealand science has been camouflaged because none were consulted by the men writing those histories, according to Kate Hannah from Te Pūnaha Matatini. She believes not only were women scientists shut out of advancing within their fields at the time, for instance when "female guests were not given speaking rights at meetings", but also our histories have more often than not been written by men and this has left women invisible. Kate has written an article for a special journal issue about Finding New Zealand's Scientific Heritage

1:35 Engaging Adolescents

How to navigate and guide a teenager through adolescence can be one of the most challenging experiences of being a parent. Michael Hawton is a registered psychologist, trained teacher, author, international speaker, media commentator and father of two. He is one of Australia's foremost experts in managing children's difficult behaviour, and has also prepared more than 1,000 child welfare reports for the Family Court. Michael has 28 years' experience working with children and families including in his private practice, working with the United Nations in Seychelles. His new book is called Engaging Adolescents.

3:10 Saving ancient religious manuscripts from destruction

ISIS has an unlikely nemesis who is trying to cut off the massive amounts of money the terrorist group makes from looting and selling antiquities. Benedictine Monk, Father Columba Stewart has spent the last 13 years saving Christian and Islamic manuscripts from destruction. He teaches locals in Syria and Iraq to look for ancient books and then preserves the manuscripts digitally.

So far he has saved 50-million handwritten pages of precious material.
