7:10 Element of the Week
To mark 2019 as the year of the Periodic Table, RNZ Nights has teamed up with the MacDiarmid Institute to bring you Element of The Week.

8:05 Friday Comedy - Killjoy
Chapter 3 of our Friday Comedy KillJoy - A satire about our obsession with true-crime and about an ill-advised attempt to make a true-crime podcast where there's really nothing to make it about. The borax is subtly poked at the genre.

8:30 Friday Night Live
This week Friday Night Live features much loved NZ rock band Dragon who perform spirited versions of their classics to a boisterous Powerstation crowd in November 2011.
9:07 Country Life
Country Life's watching for the brown marmorated stink bug, there's frost fighting on a vineyard in the wee small hours, and some cheese!
For years Chris and Jill Whalley battled to be able to produce cheese from unpasteurised milk. Now parliamentarians, the people they had to convince, are eating Mount Eliza cheese at Bellamy's.
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 The Mixtape
This week's RNZ Music mixtape selector is Whakatāne based singer/songwriter Maisey Rika. She shares her stories and some of her favourite songs with Kirsten Johnstone.
