09:05 EU-Turkey deal on migrants

The European Union and Turkey have struck a deal over Syrian refugees, that is being widely criticised by international agencies including the United Nations, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.
The refugee deal involves a one-for-one swap where Syrian refugees on the Greek islands would be returned to Turkey, with refugees currently living in Turkey going to European countries.
Turkey will also get easier access for its citizens to the European Union, and a fast track towards EU membership.
Amnesty International's Europe director is John Dalhuisen.

09:20 Everyday stories, the degradation of NZ Rivers

Tina Ngata, an educator from Gisbourne, Paula Fern, a mother from Hawkes Bay & artist Sam Mahon, from North Canterbury are among a host of ordinary New Zealanders speaking out at what they say are unacceptable freshwater standards. They're doing this by taking part in the videos for the Choose Clean Water campaign. 

National Institue of Water and Atmospheric Research  figures show that more than 60 percent of the length of New Zealand rivers fail the health standard for swimming, and  the 'wadeable' standard proposed as the bottom line by government  sets an E.coli count of 1000/100ml which is unsafe for humans and  twice the recommended safe count for stock drinking water.

The Choose Clean Water petition goes to Parliament on the 29th March.

10:05 Nurture vs nature: British Psychologist Oliver James

Oliver James

What is it that makes us like our parents? Is it our genetic makeup - the DNA passed from parent to child? Or is it the way in which our parents have raised us, that makes us who we are? Oliver James is a British clinical psychologist, author and broadcaster. He is the author of several books including They F*** You Up, Affluenza, Contented Dementia, Love Bombing and Office Politics.
His latest book is called Not in your genes: the real reason children are like their parents.  In it he argues that when it comes to psychological traits, including mental illness, smartness or shyness, genes passed down have little or nothing to do with it.

11:20 John Russell - Why Education Doesn't Stop At The School Gates

Naenae College Principal John Russell didn't set out to become a teacher. Trained as a structural engineer, it was his wife's first job as a music teacher in 1975 that set him on the path to where he is today. This year will be his tenth year as principal of Naenae, a job he only gave three to four.

When John Russell moved to Naenae College, after spells as principal at Mana College and Kapiti College, the school  was under statutory management. It  has come a long way since then. Students achieve better grades and it is now a thriving hub for the community.

John Russell's significant contribution to education through his work with students, and mentoring the country's secondary school principals, has earnt him the title of Senior New Zealander of the Year.
