8:10 Night Mail
8:15 Dateline Pacific
RNZ Pacific's daily current affairs programme covering the major Pacific stories of the week, with background and reaction from the people making the news.
8:30 Window on the World
The first of two programmes exploring why so many young people across the globe are turning away from farming, and what can be done to tempt them back. Emily Thomas meets families in Kenya, the UK and the Netherlands to find out how farmer's sons and daughters really feel about taking over the family business. How much of a role do economics, regulations, lifestyle and public perceptions play in driving them from agriculture?
9:07 Our Changing World
Estuaries are meeting places, where land meets the sea, where freshwater meets salt, and where the daily ebb and flow of tides regularly exposes sand and mud flats to the sun before covering them again with water. They are productive ecosystems that are increasingly being impacted by nutrients and sediments running off the land.
The Sustainable Seas National Science Challenge’s ‘Tipping Points’ project is carrying out a nationwide experiment at 24 sites in 15 estuaries, to find out how small cumulative change might lead to a sudden major change, or tipping point. Alison Ballance joins Waikato University’s Conrad Pilditch and Simon Thrush from the University of Auckland on the Manukau Harbour to find out more.
9:30 This Way Up
This Way Up - slices of life for curious minds.
Lately with Karyn Hay is a late night radio show on RNZ National, with an eye on live events, an ear for music, a great sense of humour and a genuine interest in people and their stories.
11:07 Music 101 pocket edition
