09:05 Land Information Minister Sage on tenure review
A host of concerns about the tenure review process have been revealed in detailed advice to the Land Information Minister. Tenure review is a voluntary process that was designed to allow crown pastoral land to be sold to a leaseholder in return for other areas of high ecological or recreational value being set aside for conservation. Since the government 's announcement to scrap it in February, in one of the biggest high country shake-ups in 40 years, Eugenie Sage has given little detail of what a replacement might look like, or whether one is needed. But now wide-ranging analysis prepared by Land Information New Zealand for Minister Sage has revealed the potential decline of the Mackenzie Basin as a key reason for ending the process. But many questions still remain.

10:35 Book review - Identity Crisis by Ben Elton
Elisabeth Easther reviews Identity Crisis by Ben Elton, described as a blistering satire on a fracturing world - and a roller-coaster thriller. It is published by Penguin Random House.
