9:05 Mediawatch

What do Graham Henry, Winston Peters and the new King of Tonga all have in common with the powers that be in the People's Republic of China? They're all leaders who've been squirming under the spotlight of the news media lately and in Mediawatch this we week look at how they're coping. We also investigate the debate about the ethics of secretly recording politicians - and we find out why fans of current affairs TV programmes these days are often only getting part of the picture on stories from overseas.
Produced and presented by Colin Peacock and Jeremy Rose.

10:06 The Sunday Group: Olympian Efforts

New Zealand has just sent it's largest-ever team, 182 athletes, to the Beijing Olympics. It's a long way from our first Olympics 100 years ago, when three Kiwis took part in the London games as part of an Australasian team. On today's Sunday Group we'll take a look back at our past glories - and at what the Olympics meant to us then, and now. Chris Laidlaw chairs a panel that includes veteran sports journalist Ron Palenski, who covered four Olympic Games from 1976 to 1988 and who's now the chief executive of the New Zealand Sports Hall of Fame; Neil Atkinson, senior historian at the Ministry for Culture and Heritage, which has compiled New Zealand's Olympic story on the web; and world champion rower and former Olympian at the 1992 and 1996 games, Philippa Baker-Hogan.
Produced by Christine Cessford
