10:20  Travel bubble with Western Australia paused as lockdown begins

The travel bubble between New Zealand and Western Australia has been paused, following the three-day lockdown in Perth and Peel regions. Residents of Perth and the Peel district, south of the city, will go into a snap three-day lockdown from midnight, after a series of covid-19 cases stemming from a MIQ hotel. The ABC's Bridget Fitzgerald speaks to Karyn from Perth.

10:30 The Lady Sterling - maritime treasure ready for new adventures

When Kiwi muso Noel Coutts rescued his magnificent schooner at the dock in Picton, he was worried the boat was about to sink.  The Lady Sterling is 16-metres (52ft) and was built of the finest kauri in 1920. The schooner was designed to race in the Pacific, and spent some time cruising around as a mobile dentist's vessel and even had a piano aboard at one stage.  It's now moored in Queenstown and ready for its new owners.
