1:15 Ruataniwha Dam dead in the water?

The Supreme Court has ruled conservation land cannot be destroyed for the controversial Ruataniwha Dam.

Forest & Bird challenged a deal between the Department of Conservation and Hawke's Bay Regional Council to acquire part of the protected Ruahine Forest Park so it could be flooded for the $900 million water storage and irrigation project. The scheme would dam 22ha of formerly-protected land and give the Department of Conservation 170ha of nearby farmland in return. The council's investment arm appealed to the Supreme Court after the Court of Appeal last year ruled the process of acquiring the land would be unlawful.

Forest & Bird chief executive is Kevin Hague.

1:30 Sam Judd: educating people about sustainability

The Sustainable Coastlines Flagship is a public education exhibit and training centre in a $2.8m building, built for just $240,000.

It was constructed mostly out of reclaimed materials. Sam Judd is the man behind the project and he's been working with prison inmates from Paremoremo prison on its construction.

1:35 The Parking meter unlocking Christchurch's best kept secrets

It's not everyday a parking meter gives you something back. But in Christchurch there's one unlocking the city's best kept secrets and this one celebrates sweet free things to do around town.

Open City has just launched and Coralie Winn, the Gap Filler Co-Founder, explains what the project is about.

1:40 Great Live Album: The Last Waltz, The Band

The Band

Today we feature the last hurrah by one of the most influential post Beatle bands.  They'd been around in various forms since the early 60s but 16 years of almost constant touring, and living the Rock 'n' Roll dream had taken it's toll on the various members and so they conceived a massive "farewell concert" to be held at San Francisco's Winterland Ballroom on November 25th 1976 (Thanksgiving Day in North American).

The concert featured numerous guest artists; Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Ronnie Hawkins, Bob Dylan, Muddy Waters, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Neil Diamond, among them and the whole thing was recorded and made into a film by Martin Scorsese, named "The Last Waltz."

2:10 Podcasts with Katy Atkin

Katy critiques a couple of Kiwi podcasts today: "Healthy or Hoax" - with RNZ's Carol Hirschfeld and food writer Niki Bezzant & "Boners of the Heart" a weekly living room chat between comedians Rose Matafeo and Alice Sneddon.     

Katy also has a word or two about "Ear Hustle" made by inmates at San Quentin prison in the United States. She says it's raw and desperate but worth a listen.

2:20 Economics with Shamubeel Eaqub

Economist Shamubeel Eaqub talks growth vs prosperity

2:40 Healthy or Hoax: Raw Food

We all know that eating more salad is going to be good for us. But what if you were never to cook your food again? Devotees of the raw food vegan diet believing heating food kills healthy nutrients and enzymes. But does it really matter if your carrots are cooked or not?

In the final episode of Healthy or Hoax, Carol Hirschfeld finds out.
