1:27 10th anniversary of Japan's tsunami
Ten years ago today a powerful earthquake to the north east of Japan's Honshu Island triggered a massive tsunami that devastated coastal Japan.
The magnitude-9.0 earthquake caused a lot of damage itself, and then the waves came.

We look back on New Zealand's classic 60s pop show C’mon which ran from 1966 to 1969. It was hosted by Peter Sinclair and produced by Kevan Moore.
New Zealand had only had tv since 1960, and a music and performance show like C'Mon was only possible when the Shortland Street television studio came into commission in 1966.
Kevan Moore joins us along with Screen historian Irene Gardiner.
