10:20 NZ's defence force needs a vigorous cultural change

An independent review has found the New Zealand  Defence Force has failed to address harmful behaviours since an action plan was implemented four years ago.

Operation Respect in 2016 was aimed at eliminating inappropriate sexual behaviour, discrimination, harassment and bullying. The review was commissioned by the Ministry of Defence included interviews with more than 400 past and present personnel across all camps and bases.

Karyn speaks with former naval officer  Napier City councillor, Hayley Browne, who is hopeful senior leadership will start to address cultural change "with more vigour".

10:30 GURL to premiere at the NZ International Film Festival 

It's almost time for the New Zealand International Film Festival. It starts on the 24th of July and runs until the second of August. Except this year of course it all looks a little different. Artist, activist and film maker Mika X's new short film GURL will debut in the festival. It's inspired by the story of Carmen Rupe and Mika plans to add to it to make a feature length film titled The Book of Carmen.
