An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind. Mahatma Gandhi

On Friday Night Live we go to The Holy Trinity Cathedral in September 2013 with a performance from much loved song-writing and performing legends Dave Dobbyn & Don McGlashan. The duo is marking the ten-year anniversary of the first Acoustic Church Tour.
9:07 Country Life
Country Life meets a man near Pukekohe who grows hundreds of thousands of white orchids for export each year - he says it's simpler that way.
Then we go up the creek and off the grid just south of Franz Josef with a farmer Graham Berry. The born-and-bred West Coaster borrows water from a creek in the Department of Conservation managed Park, to drive a 55-kiloWatt, hydro-electric scheme to power his dairy shed, electric fences and farm houses.
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.
