09:30 Pamper days for preschoolers
Sally Locke, proprietor of Sally's Place - a "boutique" childcare centre in Mosman, Sydney. Sally likes to think of her service as resort-style and she certainly follows that through by holding what she calls "Pamper Days" for her preschoolers. Pamper Days apparently involve the youngsters having their nails and hair done, a moisturising treatment, a foot spa, and a massage - all done to the background of soothing relaxation music.

10:05 Fishing personality and self-made man, Bill Hohepa
Bill Hohepa has been writing a weekly fishing column in the Truth newspaper for 40 years, written four books, made 37 fishing videos, given hundreds of seminars and made countless TV shows. He's also known hardship and seen the tough side of life - physically abused as a child at the hands of his step-father and as a prison guard at Paremoremo for years - he now runs fishing and life-skill camps for fathers and their sons.
Bill Hohepa says fishing literally changed his life, and he reckons it can do the same for others.
