09:30 Preparing the regions for the demands of an ageing population
As the population in provincial centres keeps ageing, and in some areas getting smaller, how will service levels be maintained, and the meet the needs of older people. Demographic changes, including the rapid growth of Auckland, attracting more businesses and workers are impacting on the economic and social futures of the regions, and the demands on their infrastructure, and services. Some in the aged care sector expecting that close-knit communities of older people who are living and working longer could defy projections of the demise of some provincial areas - but admit there will be big challenges. Kathryn discusses the issue with demographer Paul Spoonley, Massey University Distinguished Professor and Pro-Vice Chancellor; Robyn Scott, the chief executive of Age Concern; and Simon Challies, the Ryman Healthcare chief executive.

10:05 Youngest ever solo round-the-world sailor Laura Dekker
Laura Dekker is the youngest person ever to sail around the world solo. She was born in New Zealand, but raised in the Netherlands, and was 14 when she set off in her 12-metre ketch, Guppy. It was a voyage she almost didn't get to make, as Dutch authorities took her and her parents to court to prevent it. She won the right to proceed, and during the one-year journey encountered fierce storms, was nearly holed by a whale, and carried out countless repairs to her boat. She also decided she would never live in Holland again, choosing to settle in New Zealand, where she now lives aboard Guppy in Whangarei Harbour. Laura's written a book about her journey, called One Girl, One Dream.
