1:37 Ngā Taonga Sound Archives: New Zealand's lighthouse keepers

Thirty years ago in mid-1990, New Zealand's last occupied lighthouse became fully automated, and the era of the lighthouse keeper came to an end. In today's visit to the sound archives with Sarah Johnston we will listen to the men and women of The Lighthouse Service, who lived in some of our most remote places, keeping the lights on for over 130 years.

3:10 Dr Aliya Hamid Rao - How Married Couples Confront Unemployment

When a married man loses his white collar job, the whole household turns its attention to supporting him to find another one. For the woman, it's a different story. She can fit a job search in around the chores. These are the findings of Dr Aliya Hamid Rao from the London School of Economics. She writes about the gender divide in her new book, Crunch Time: How Married Couples Confront Unemployment.
