9:05 Mediawatch

This week Mediawatch looks at newspapers' struggle for survival in tough economic times. In the US, some famous newspapers are nearly bankrupt - so how are New Zealand's papers equipped to weather the storm? Mediawatch also looks at the new programme about politics which has brought Paul Holmes back to TV One; and who got the media credit for Helen Clark's prestigious new job at the UN? Was it Clark herself, or the country?
Produced and presented by Colin Peacock and Jeremy Rose.

10:06 The Sunday Group: Car Crazy

10:40 Hidden Treasures

Each week Trevor Reekie takes you on a trip that seeks out musical gems from niche markets around the globe, the latest re-releases and interesting sounds from the shallow end of the bit stream. This week Trevor celebrates 55 years of rock history by harking back to the million-seller rocker who started a craze in distinctive spit-curl hairstyles, as well as reviewing the music of a recent visitor to the Wellington jazz festival.

11:05 Ideas: UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

Earlier this month the Australian Government officially endorsed the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
The move was highly significant because along with the United States, Canada and New Zealand, Australia was one of just four countries to vote against the adoption of the declaration by the General Assembly in 2007.
Later that year the Supreme Court of Belize became the first court in the world to cite the declaration in a decision upholding the rights of the local Maya indigenous people to their traditional lands and resources.
In Ideas this week we hear from aboriginal lawyer Megan Davis about the reaction in Australia to the decision and we talk with Maori academic and long-time campaigner for the declaration Aroha Mead and MP and Maori Party foreign affairs spokesperson Hone Harawera.
