8:30 Window on the World
Cucuta is a desperate place, overflowing with Venezuelans who are streaming across the nearby border, fleeing economic collapse. In among the desperation are glimmers of hope, like the four young musicians busking their way round the city's restaurants to earn money. Karenina Velandia, who grew up in Venezuela, follows her compatriots' highs and lows as they try to scrape together enough to survive - not just for themselves, but for the parents, wives, and children they've left behind.
9:07 The Drama Hour
If you're into the sharemarket, October is not a good month.
In 2008 it was crunch time for quite a few New Zealanders and comparisons are being made with October 1929 and the start of the US sharemarket rout which precipitated the great depression. But today we're recalling October , 1987 and another sharemarket crash many in New Zealand still remember 3 decades on.
Peter Bland stars in the play he wrote himself 'One Hell of a Day'.
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 Inside Out
Tonight we have the first half of a tribute concert for long-time RNZ jazz broadcaster Haydn Sherley, hosted by the Wellington Jazz Club at Meow bar, with Nick Tipping as MC. The Paul Dyne Quintet plays some of Haydn's favourite tunes, with Paul on bass, Shaun Anderson on drums, Anita Schwabe on piano, Craig Walters on saxophone, and Hannah Griffin singing.
And you can hear the second half of the Haydn Sherley tribute concert from the Wellington Jazz Club next week on Inside Out, on RNZ National.
