Written and presented by Rowan Quinn

8:40 Jane Bowron – Life with Old Bucky
Jane Bowron joins Chris in the Christchurch studio to talk about her observations on life in the city. Jane's popular newspaper columns give a personal, sometimes painful, and often humourous insight into the experiences of those who stay and do the best they can to get on with their lives.
Jane Bowron’s book “Old Bucky & Me’, published by Awa Press, will be released on November 4. A dollar from the sale of every copy will be donated to the Christchurch rebuild.
Mediawatch looks at signs of earthquake fatigue in the media – and the public – one year on from the first big quake to hit Canterbury. The programme investigates the three brand new news agencies aiming to fill the void left by the demise of the national agency NZPA; how the media put words in Hone Harawira’s mouth; and how a teenager on a TV talent show trumped a four billion dollar blowout in our national budget.
Produced and presented by Colin Peacock and Jeremy Rose.
9:40 Mark Fredericks – Sports Boycotts
South African Mark Fredericks has produced a video documentary, ‘Injury Time’ which looks at the important roles of sport and the sports boycott in the downfall of South Africa’s apartheid regime. He tells Chris that the ANC has betrayed those who struggled against apartheid and says the international sports boycott of South Africa was lifted too early, and should have continued to force genuine integration in sport.
Mark Fredericks is from Walter Sisulu University. He was in New Zealand recently with Global Peace and Justice Auckland to mark the 30th anniversary of the 1981 Springbok tour.
10:06 Peter Hyde – Tale of Three Cities
Peter Hyde coined the 'three cities' phrase following the February quake - rescue city, shower city and refugee city. He warns there are lessons to be learned for the rest of the country from the experience of the residents of the Eastern suburbs.
10:45 Hidden Treasures
Trevor Reekie features new music from a young American singer-songwriter who, for her debut album, has collaborated with some of the biggest songwriters in the business; plus a new album from a Malian guitarist known as the ‘The Hendrix of the Sahara’.
Produced by Trevor Reekie
