10:20     Extinction Rebellion kicks off in London after it's all day XR disruptions in Wellington  

Police have made dozens of arrests after removing climate protesters staging a sit-down protest on the corner of Wellington's Lambton Quay and Bowen Street.

They stopped buses going to and from the downtown bus terminal, as well as other traffic. Protesters are moved on by police in Wellington.

Members of Extinction Rebellion were sitting in a circle, while singing, chanting and refusing to move. Among other acts of disrupton six people glued themselves onto the building housing the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.

Constans Anderson from Extinction Rebellion speaks with Karyn after the day's demonstrations in the Capital that she travelled to from Christchurch.

10:30     Taika Waititi's JoJo Rabbit comes ashore in Aotearoa 

We've been watching it make it's way here - after its world premiere-standing-ovation at the Toronto International Film Festival last month.

Taika Waititi describes his new film Jojo Rabbit as a "love letter to mothers, especially solo mothers". 

Tonight JoJo Rabbit had a special screening in Wellington, and RNZ National's Simon Morris of At The Movies, Standing Room Only, and Matinee Idle joins Karyn in the studio afterwards to give us a run-down on JoJo Rabbit's New Zealand welcome.

10:45     Do It Yourself: Putting down a hangi 

In our occasional series, Do It Yourself,  we look at things we'd like to be able to do by ourselves, but perhaps don't know how. 

A hangi is something many of us love, but do you know what goes into putting one down?

Isaac Matai is Ngati Porou and is on the line from Gisborne sharing with Karyn how he learned.
