8:30 Window on the World
In parts of Nevada, prostitution is legal - the only such state in the US. The 'live and let live' mentality is a hangover from the gold rush days; in certain counties, brothels have been officially licensed since 1971. Today, no fewer than seven of them are owned by one man: Dennis Hof, a gun-toting restaurateur, entrepreneur and reality TV star. He calls himself the 'Trump from Pahrump', after a town where he recently won the Republican primaries for the Nevada State Legislature. Lucy Ash talks to Dennis Hof, the women who work for him, and those who are pushing for change.

as part of our New Zealand theatre month season of Drama, we have an indigenous Sci-Fi 'And What Remains' written by Miria George. The last official Maori waits to leave the country with a diverse bunch of strangers who have their own reasons for leaving. When the flight is delayed, the strangers discover the truth about why Mary and her people have left.
