Have you ever wondered how music is captured on a vinyl record? Well, musician and vinyl-cutter Jesse Wilde wants to show you.

He's holding an event on Saturday March 16th, in which people can watch a live music performance recorded, mixed, mastered and cut to vinyl before their very eyes, over the course of just three hours.

It can be hard enough deciding what food to eat, and it's made all the worse if you have allergies.

Alana Scott's frustration when she was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome and coeliac disease, led her to develop a website with recipes for those on low-FODMAP and gluten-free diets.

She's now gathered the best ones and put them in a book called The Gut Friendly Cookbook.

3:10 The theories around missing flight MH370

How does a Boeing triple seven airplane with 239 people on board simply disappear? Five years after Malaysia Flight MH370 vanished, that question remains unanswered.

Ean Higgins is a senior reporter on The Australian and has covered the story of the disappearance of that aircraft  since the day it went missing on its way from Kuala Lumpur  to   Beijing  on March 8th 2014.  Over the years he's spoken to crash investigators, aviation experts and underwater hunters  scouring the wild seas of the southern Indian Ocean for clues. He tells the inside story of the mystery and what he believes happened to that ill fated flight in his new book, The Hunt for MH370: The Mystery. The Cover Up. The Truth.
