New Zealand's under-17 women's football side is now officially the third-best in the world.

Christchurch-based inventor Nigel Pink started roasting coffee beans by connecting his Toyata van's windscreen wiper motor to his barbecue.

1:35 Auckland City Mission kicks off Christmas appeal

For a lot of people, Christmas is a super stressful time of year.

For families who already struggle to make ends meet, the added pressure to make it a special occasion can stretch the purse-strings to breaking point.

The Auckland City Mission tries to help out by providing less fortunate families with food parcels and presents, and to pay for all this, it holds an annual Christmas fundraising appeal.

Comedian Urzila Carlson is involved with this year's appeal and joins us in the studio to explain what it's all about.

3:10 Welsh comedian, Rob Bryden

Welsh Comedian Rob Brydon is bringing back "nice". The star of shows like The Trip, Gavin and Stacey and Would I Lie To You?  is coming to New Zealand for the first time next year with a live stand up show that features old school audience interaction and impressions not politics and insults. 

I Am Standing Up is already sold out in Auckland and Wellington and a Christchurch show is being added to the itinerary.

We'll talk to the actor and comedian about why wit and charm can still pull in audiences.
