Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan for Wednesday 3 May 2017

1:10 Resonate: In Session

Our first song today is being performed by an acapella group, called Resonate, who are among the choirs competing in the TVNZ show, 'The Naked Choir'. Resonate is a family group, made up of Richard Edward Wolfgramm, Leah Jayne Wolfgramm, William Leonard Wolfgramm and Moala Priscilla Wolfgramm.

1:20 Urban Ecological Restoration

Why has nature been fighting a losing battle in our urban areas? And what can we do about it? Professor Bruce Clarkson is the 2016 Charles Fleming Award recipient for his work in ecology, and he's the deputy vice-chancellor research at University of Waikato. He's giving public talks about how community and local council can work to bring indigenous nature back into cities where 87 per cent of New Zealand's population live.

1:35 Sound Archives: 80's Kiwi Sports Anthems

They're known as 'stadium anthems' - or 'jock jams' in the US - music tracks which are pumped out at sporting events to get the crowd hyped. They also feature heavily in the soundtrack to television and radio sports broadcasts - other favourites are songs such as Queen's "We Are the Champions" or "Another One Bites the Dust".

And we have a few of our own Kiwi sports anthems. Sarah Johnston is going to play us a few from the sound archives of Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision.

3:10 Gurinder Chadha: The Partition of India

Seventy years ago, Lord Mountbatten became the last viceroy to India, sent by the King to oversee the transfer of power from Britain to India ending 300 years of colonial rule.

The British plan involved dividing the country into two independent nation states: Hindu-majority India and Muslim-majority Pakistan. The partition displaced millions of people, triggering mass migration as Muslims went one way and Hindus and Sikhs went the other. Several hundred thousand people died. This history is personal for director Gurinder Chadha, who made her mark in cinema with Bend it like Beckham

Her family was caught up in tragedy 70 years ago. She tells the epic story of the Partition in a new movie called Viceroy's House.
