Nights for Wednesday 24 June 2020
7:12 Looking after Stranded Migrant Workers and Tourists on Waiheke Island.
A Budgeting service on Waiheke Island is keeping its migrant workers going with help from civil defence until they're allowed to work again. Almost 250 migrants were on the island when lockdown began - they have been getting food parcels from the Waiheke Budgeting Service and the budgeting service wants the Government to include them in the emergency benefit category.
Amelia Lawley, the service's manager joins us.
7:30 At The Movies
On At The Movies, Simon Morris looks at three short sharp films - Irish drama Rosie... a documentary about AI, Machine... and hit low-budget genre picture, The Wretched.
8:10 The Hump
The Hump is our Wednesday night Quiz Night where we take a dive into the archives of Nga Taonga Sound and Vision for some audio gems and we want to see if you can identify them.
Tonight's prize is The Mirror Steamed Over (Love and Pop In London in 1962) by Anthony Byrt
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
How an online test and a mobile phone might be able to help some families and small businesses organise their money.
Episode 7 - New planes, new rules.
Ramping up Spitfire production requires another new factory. Bigger, better, full of cutting-edge machinery and the best workers in the business. But it's a catastrophe - one that nearly costs Britain dearly.
We talk to Cristina Sanders about her new novel Jerningham based on the story of Edward Jerningham Wakefield, the wild-child of the Wakefield family that set up the New Zealand Company to bring the first settlers to this country.
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
After 11, on Inside out, Nick Tipping checks out some of the tracks on Wellington pianist Leonardo Coghini's debut album - a huge 3-volume set, consisting entirely of solo improvisations recorded in one day in 2019. We also hear some classic bossa nova from Stan Getz, and the Thad Jones Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra.
