09:20 Walking odyssey: Paul Salopek's human journey
Paul Salopek is seven years into a decade long 'Out of Eden' walk, from Africa to South America. In 2013 he set out on foot to retrace the global migration of humankind, from Ethiopia to Tierra del Fuego. So far the journalist and National Geographic Fellow has traversed Africa to the Holy Lands, the Autumn Wars route to the Silk Road, and been through Pakistan and India. He's currently in Myanmar. He calls his 21,000 mile (34,000 kilometres) epic trek an experiment in slow journalism.

11:20 Stress test: Trainee pilot's solo landing after instructor collapses
Imagine you've just started learning to fly a plane, when your instructor suddenly collapses unconscious and can't be roused. It's the stuff of nightmares, but for Perth-based Max Sylvester it was the reality of a Saturday afternoon back in August. He was taking his first lesson in a Cessna, and his third flying lesson overall, when his Kiwi flying instructor Robert Mollard suffered a medical event. Max joins Kathryn to talk about how he managed to land the plane.
