12:50 Bridget Ikin: Sherpa

An angry brawl a few years ago between European climbers and a gang of disgruntled Sherpas contradicted everything we thought we knew about the friendly, loyal mountain guides who selflessly assisted Sir Ed Hillary and his successors to the top of Mount Everest. Producer Bridget Ikin tells us that brawl was the starting point of a documentary which is opening here in a few weeks. Sherpa ended up going somewhere bigger and more shocking.

Christchurch playwright Carl Nixon's new comedy Matthew, Mark, Luke and Joanne explores the tendency to listen to people who tell us how to think. Matthew's wife and best friend struggle to deal with his conversion to Christianity following a vision in the gluten-free aisle of his local supermarket.

At a time when public broadcasting is being squeezed on all sides - is it too elitist, is it too dumbed-down? - one radio programme ignores trends. It's officially called "Saturday Morning", but everyone simply calls it "Kim Hill" - which is only partly accurate. But Kim's only half the package. Playing David Rawlings to her Gillian Welch is Saturday Morning's secret weapon, producer extraordinaire Mark Cubey. Mark picks comedy from Fawlty Towers, Gary Shandling, Ross Noble, and The Producers.

2:45 Paul Waggott

Chances are that if you've seen a play in Wellington in the last few years Paul Waggott was in it, often as a member of his collective My Accomplice.

He's performing in a physically demanding, one man fantasy epic parody that he co-wrote,  The Seven Sons of Supparath, and a return season of Beards! Beards! Beards!. But these will be the last shows Paul performs before heading to his native UK.
