Sunday Morning for Sunday 26 February 2012
8:12 Insight: Christchurch Health Services A Year On
Radio New Zealand Health Correspondent Karen Brown returns to survey the medical services in Christchurch that she visited a month after the February quakes to see how they are faring now.
Produced by Philippa Tolley.
8:40 Claudette Habesch – Holy City
Claudette Habesch is Secretary General of Caritas Jerusalem, the humanitarian and development organisation for the Catholic Church in the Holy Land. It was founded in the aftermath of the Six-Day War in 1967, and she has led it since 1987. Claudette talks to Chris about how, at the age of 7, during the war of independence for Israel in 1948 (called the ‘nakba’ or catastrophe by Palestinians), her family was expelled from its home in Jerusalem – and how her personal story has shaped her work.
Claudette Habesch is in New Zealand as a guest of Caritas Aotearoa New Zealand for its Annual Lent Appeal.
Mediawatch looks at how the media marked this week’s earthquake anniversary, and asks journalists and media people in Christchurch how their jobs - and their lives - have changed in the past year. And what does the future hold for the media in Christchurch, now facing the challenge of reporting on the recovery while also rebuilding their own business?
Produced and presented by Colin Peacock and Jeremy Rose.
9:40 Gavin Quinn – The Great Dane
Ignoring all warnings, Gavin Quinn works with animals and children to direct The Rehearsal, Playing the Dane, which turns Shakespeare on its head and features a real Great Dane. He talks to Chris about his play of two halves.
The Rehearsal, Playing the Dane is on until Tuesday at the International Arts Festival in Wellington.
10:06 New Flags Flying – Independence in Samoa and Nauru
Between 1960 and 1990, strong winds of political change swept across Pacific countries. Broadcaster Ian Johnstone has captured this change in a series of interviews with Pacific leaders which he presents with his co-editor Michael Powles in a series called New Flags Flying. Sunday Morning features highlights from the series on the last Sunday of each month during 2012. This week, Galumalemana Alfred Hunkin, Ian and Michael join Chris to discuss colonisation and independence in Samoa and Nauru.
The full interviews with the Pacific leaders can be heard on Radio New Zealand International

11.05 Ideas: The (cycle) path to health and prosperity

Jeremy Rose talks to Roger Geller about the transformation of Portland into America’s most cycle-friendly city; and Chris Laidlaw talks to public health professors Alistair Woodward and Hank Weiss about the extraordinary health benefits of cycling and walking and what can be done to make our cities safer for those choosing to leave their cars at home.
